CBD Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Introduction to CBD
What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. It is known for its potential therapeutic properties and is non-intoxicating, meaning it doesn’t produce a “high.”
How is CBD different from THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)?
CBD and THC are both compounds found in cannabis, but they have different effects. CBD is non-psychoactive, while THC is the compound responsible for the high associated with marijuana.
Is CBD legal in Nebraska?

Benefits of CBD
What are the potential health benefits of CBD?
CBD has been reported to potentially offer relief from various conditions, including anxiety, pain, inflammation, insomnia, and more. However, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using CBD for specific health concerns.
How can CBD help with pain, anxiety, and other conditions?
CBD may interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating various bodily functions. This interaction can potentially provide relief from pain, anxiety, and other conditions, but results can vary from person to person.
Are there any side effects of using CBD?
While CBD is generally considered safe, some individuals may experience side effects such as dry mouth, dizziness, or changes in appetite. These effects are typically mild and temporary.
CBD Products, Dosage, and Usage
How do I determine the right CBD dosage for me?
Finding the right CBD dosage can vary from person to person and depends on factors like body weight, the condition being treated, and individual sensitivity. We recommend starting with a low dose and gradually increasing until you achieve the desired effect.
What’s the best way to consume CBD (e.g., oil, flower, gummies, etc.)?
The best way to consume CBD depends on your personal preference and how quickly you want to feel its effects. CBD oil tinctures work faster, while capsules and gummies offer a convenient and discreet option.
How do I choose the right CBD product for my needs?
Selecting the right CBD product depends on factors like your desired effects, preferred method of consumption, and dosage. Our friendly staff can provide guidance to help you make the best choice.
Can I use CBD for pets?
Yes, you can use CBD for pets, but it’s important to use specially formulated CBD products for animals. Always consult with a veterinarian before giving CBD to your pets.
What’s the difference between full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate CBD?
Full-spectrum CBD contains all the naturally occurring compounds in the cannabis plant, including a trace amount of THC.
Broad-spectrum CBD is similar but with THC removed. CBD isolate is pure CBD with no other compounds. The choice depends on individual preferences and sensitivities.

Are there any potential drug interactions with CBD?
CBD may interact with certain medications. If you are taking prescription drugs, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using CBD to avoid potential interactions.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp contains low THC (0.3% or less) and is rich in non-psychoactive CBD. It’s mainly used for industrial purposes like textiles and CBD products. On the other hand, marijuana has high THC (5% to 30% or more) and is used for its psychoactive and medicinal effects. Hemp appears tall with skinny leaves, while marijuana is shorter and bushier with broader leaves. Hemp is generally legal in many places, including the US, as long as its THC content stays below 0.3%, while marijuana’s legality varies, with some regions permitting its recreational and medicinal use.
Will I fail a drug test if I take CBD?
Whether CBD use results in a positive drug test depends on various factors. There are two main types of CBD products: full-spectrum and CBD isolate. Full-spectrum may contain trace amounts of THC, while CBD isolate should not contain any THC. Drug test sensitivity plays a significant role, as standard tests look for THC metabolites. The risk increases with the consumption of high doses or frequent use of full-spectrum CBD over time. To reduce the risk of a positive test result, opt for CBD isolate products, choose reputable manufacturers, monitor your CBD usage, and consider informing the testing entity about your CBD consumption.
What Is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a crucial physiological system in the human body responsible for maintaining balance and homeostasis. It consists of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), endocannabinoids produced within the body, and enzymes that regulate their function. The ECS plays a role in various bodily functions, including pain perception, mood, immune response, and appetite regulation. It interacts with both naturally occurring endocannabinoids and external cannabinoids like CBD and THC. By helping regulate essential processes, the ECS has garnered interest for its potential therapeutic applications in various health conditions.
