FAQ

What is CBD?

The cannabis plant contains more than 100 different chemical compounds known as cannabinoids which interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. One of those cannabinoids is CBD, or cannabidiol. CBD is the most prominent cannabinoid found in industrial hemp and is considered non-intoxicating. There is growing research indicating that there may be a wide range of health benefits from using CBD and other cannabinoids. 

What are Freddie's processing practices?

Freddie's hemp is grown using organic growing methods. At the lab, Food grade ethyl alcohol is used for extracting all the medical potential from the cannabinoid rich hemp extract flowers. We craft our products here in our licensed, food grade facility while utilizing natural and organic ingredients for all our products.

How do I determine proper dosing?

CBD dosing is an individualized process and should always be directed by a health professional. The rule of thumb is to start with smaller to moderate doses and work your way up to the achieve the desired effect. Our tinctures have dosage information on the bottle, telling you how much CBD is in each bottle. Our tinctures currently have single serving sizes ranging from 15 mg to 33 mg. And, remember, you can always take more or less than one serving at a time to reach your desired effect.

Is CBD legal?

CBD is federally legal as it is derived from industrial hemp which is governed by state programs created through The Farm Bill. Industrial hemp is tested by the states before harvest and contain less than .3% THC.

Most states laws are aligned with the federal law, but some state laws on hemp derivatives may differ. Check with your local jurisdiction. 

Can I fail a drug test from using industrial hemp products?

Full-spectrum products contain trace amounts of THC.  These micro doses of THC likely and typically won't be detected with short term or intermittent use, but  (ingested products only) can build up in fat cells over time with regular or prolonged use. Topical products will not typically trigger any THC detection, even if a Full-Spectrum product. 

Although we believe a whole extract, full-spectrum tincture is the most effective product around, we realize that certain people must adhere to certain regulations which is why we offer a broad spectrum (no detectable THC) tincture option.

More CBD FAQs

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of over 100 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants.

Studies have shown CBD may interact with your body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) and help support a healthy central nervous system.

The ECS is a biological system composed of neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, which are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. CBD helps modulate and regulate the firing of the CB1 and CB2 receptors.  

There are a few different ways that you can use CBD products:

Sublingually or orally: We advise taking anywhere from .25ml to 2 ml doses, or as directed by a health professional. Put the CBD oil underneath your tongue and keep it there for 60 seconds. The effects of the CBD oil will act quickly and can last for hours. Repeat as needed. 

Topically: Rub a small amount of topical product onto the affected area.  There’s no need to use large amounts as a little goes a long way. Repeat as necessary. 

CBD oil is made by extracting all the phytochemicals from the entire cannabis sativa plant, including flower, leaves and stems.  This process captures all the cannabinoids, terpenes and essential oils found in the plant.  This allows them to work in harmony and is commonly known as the entourage effect.

Hemp oil on the other hand is derived strictly from the seed oil and does not use any other part of the plant.  While hemp oil has its benefits with the essential oils it contains, it has no CBD, terpenes, THC, or any other cannabinoid.  Hemp oil products can be found on Amazon whereas CBD products cannot. 

Full Spectrum contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. Full-spectrum extracts from hemp also come with a negligible THC content which is below 0.3%

Broad-spectrum CBD contains cannabidiol and all the other compounds within the plant except THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.

CBD Legality

You should always consult with your physician before using CBD.

Certain medications will not interact well with CBD. If your medications warn against eating grapefruit — because it activates the P450 liver enzyme — you should not use CBD at all. CBD could cause the medication to become toxic in your system. You should be monitored by a physician if you choose to use the two together.

It is the theory that all compounds in the cannabis plant work in synergy and when ingested together, they have a much better effect than using single compounds from the plant.  Research suggests using full spectrum hemp extracts may work more in conjunction with our endocannabinoid system.

While Full Spectrum CBD is legal in all 50 states because the Delta9 THC is below .3%, if you are a heavy user of full spectrum tinctures, there is a possibility you may test positive.  However, if you use full spectrum topicals or broad spectrum tinctures (THC Free) you will not fail a drug test.

CBD will not make you high, because the Delta 9 THC is below .3% which is legal in all 50 states.
