Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD (or cannabidiol) is one of over 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than it is in marijuana. And because it’s non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded to possess incredible health potential.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a group of fatty compounds found in hemp but also produced by other plants and the human body. They are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. These compounds are key players in normal immune and central nervous system functioning.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced by the cannabis plant as well as most other plants. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
Terpenes can also have powerful effects on our bodies. In fact, terpenes have been utilized by humans for millennia in what’s commonly known as aromatherapy. For example, the scent of citrus is produced primarily by a combination of limonene and pinene, both of which are thought to elevate mood.
What’s the difference between Hemp oil and CBD oil?
The main difference between CBD and Hemp is that Hemp does not contain CBD. CBD and hemp oils are made from different parts of the plant and have different purposes. CBD is a compound found in industrial hemp, and we utilize a whole plant CO2 extraction that allows us to draw the CBD from the plant material and filter out unnatural substances, maximizing pure CBD concentration. While CBD is extracted from the entire plant, minus the seeds, hemp is extracted only from the seeds. Hemp oil is made from pressing hemp seeds and is used in a variety of products. Hemp-seed oil is used as a protein supplement for food, as varnish for wood and, because of its remedial properties for hair and skin, as an ingredient in lotion and soap products. You can buy hemp-seed oil online or at certain food stores, where you can learn about more ways to incorporate it into your diet and hygiene. CBD oil is generally used for medicinal purposes and has shown great promise in treating inflammation, pain, sleeping disorders and even certain types of epileptic seizures.
How much CBD should I take?
Determining the right amount of CBD will be unique from person to person and everybody processes CBD differently based on key factors like age, weight, and diet. The “right” dose of CBD can vary based on the need you are trying to address and whether your condition is mild or severe.
For first timers, we recommend starting with a base dose (about 4mg of CBD) up to 3 times a day and stick with it for about 2-3 days and increase 1-2mg a day until you find your sweet spot. Using CBD daily is the best way to see results.
Are there any negative side effects?
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness. If your intention is to remain alert, this may be considered an unwanted side effect and therefore large servings should be avoided.
Is CBD oil intoxicating?
CBD oil is non-intoxicating and will not make you feel stoned or high.
Will I need a marijuana card or doctor’s prescription to use CBD products?
No. CBD is not a drug. You will not be required to produce a medical marijuana card in order to purchase CBD online. However, some states have laws allowing doctors to recommend CBD to patients for particular conditions.
Does CBD interact with other medications?
If you are taking prescription medications, consulting with a qualified medical professional is a must.
Are there medical studies on CBD?
There have been thousands of scientific and medical studies have been carried out specifically on CBD. Project CBD is a non-profit organization strictly dedicated to documenting the research progress on this incredible drug. In just a year of (2017), Cannabidiol has been shown to help with Anxiety, Epilepsy, Seizures, High Blood Pressure, Psychotic Disorders, PTSD, Stroke Rehabilitation, Pain, Colitis, Liver Injury.Over the past years, hundred CBD-Related studies have been operated in dozens of countries and institutions. Bringing many to devote to the growing, understanding and acceptance of CBD.
How do I know it’s safe to purchase CBD online?
To ensure the legality of buying CBD products online, you need to make sure the company you’re buying from is reputable and that the product was made from industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC content. Transportation of marijuana across state lines (from legal to non-legal states) is against the law, transporting hemp and hemp-based products are safe. Remember, millions of people all over the US (and the globe) are using CBD products every day to effectively treat their medical conditions. Don’t judge a brand by its designed labels. Always ask yourself this following questions: Where is their CBD from? The Point of Origin from hemp is important because if your Hemp is not from the U.S it is definitely not legal, if the company doesn’t tell you where their farms are, they may not know. -Is it local or organic? Usually, you can check this information through the companies lab testing paperwork.

Will I fail a drug test if I use your CBD products?
It depends on the testing standards of the lab administering your drug test. Most companies only search for the cannabinoid THC, which is the main psychoactive component of the marijuana plant. While Calm by Wellness products are THC free, there are some testing facilities that check for a spectrum of cannabinoids and could trigger a positive drug test. By law, you are allowed to ask the facility what cannabinoids they test for. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can call and ask anonymously. We suggest contacting the testing facility if there is any concern.
What is the ideal serving size?
The ideal serving size for our Calm by Wellness CBD products depend on a wide range of variables. It also depends on the product. Servings of 5 to 50 milligrams per day are commonly reported for health maintenance and minor issues. Please check the Supplement Facts on the back of the label for recommended serving size.

CBD itself does not have an expiration date. However, CBD oil products can degrade and should be used within a certain period of time. They should be stored in airtight containers either in the refrigerator or in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Ingestibles are around 18 months and topicals around 2 years.
