Q: What is CBD?

The marijuana plant consists of over 60 active chemical compounds or cannabinoids. The number one is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). But the second highest cannabinoid is cannabidiol or CBD. This naturally occurring substance is derived from the hemp plant and has the ability to help those suffering from different issues such as joint and muscles pain, inflammation, digestive and nausea issues, recovery from surgery and extensive exercise.

Q: Does Using CBD Get You High?

Unlike its cousin THC, CBD is not psychoactive and will not give you any sort of “high”, no matter how you use it. It will, however, give you a sense of relief or a calming feeling. CBD is typically found in the non-psychoactive portion of the hemp plant, typically within the seeds and stems, while THC comes from the flowering bud of the plant. THC binds itself to different receptors in our brain, creating the psychoactive effects of ingesting marijuana. With CBD, you won’t feel sedated or altered in any way,   though some people will experience potential side effects, like nausea, fatigue, and irritability. No drug is perfect, which is why it’s best to consult with your doctor before trying any CBD products.

Q: Is CBD Legal in Richmond and Danville, VA?

The use and purchase of CBD products has been officially made federally legal in all 50 states. The product must contain no more than 0.03% THC. Depending on the state you live in, there will be other laws buyers will have to concern themselves with, but our Richmond and Danville, VA shops are proud to serve CBD products to our residents looking for a natural alternative.

Q: Do I Need a Medical Card to Use CBD Products?

Since there are no psychoactive elements of CBD products containing less than 0.03 percent THC, it is considered indistinguishable and you will not need to see a doctor to get a prescription or have a medical card to purchase. If you are going to start a regime of daily CBD use, it may be advisable to see a doctor before, so they can help explain the benefits and point you in the right direction of the best way to ingest for your lifestyle. You will also want to ensure it doesn’t mess with any other medications you may currently be taking. A medical professional will also be able to explain the benefits of using this all-natural product as an alternative to traditional medicines and prescriptions.

Q: Do You Manufacture CBD or Is It Natural?

CBD naturally occurs as a chemical compound within the hemp plant. It is not synthetically made in a factory or man made in a lab. There are products which combine CBD with other materials such as edibles, tinctures, topical creams, oils, and more. However, we urge people to be careful when purchasing, making sure to read the ingredients to ensure you are getting exactly what you are seeking. Our team is aware of all the products sold in the shop and can help point you in the right directions after you explain your needs and wants from CBD use.

It is most commonly used to help treat those who go through major bouts with anxiety on a daily basis, as well as a treatment for those suffering from insomnia.
