FAQ

1. WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL (CBD)?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound that comes from the leaves and flowers of industrial hemp or marijuana cannabis. It is the most widely accepted non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp-based CBD extracts should not be confused with CBD from marijuana, even though they both derive from the same plant – all of our Gramina’s CBD products contain CBD extracted from industrial hemp.

2. IS CBD OIL LEGAL?

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and hemp-derived products are legal to produce, sell, and consume throughout all 50 states. These products must be derived from industrial hemp containing less than 0.3% THC. That being said, states can still decide if they want to allow the sale and production of hemp-based products.

3. WILL I GET „HIGH“ FROM CBD OIL?

Because CBD is a non-intoxicating component from industrial hemp, which legally must have less than 0.3 % of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), there’s no “high” or euphoric effect as a result of using hemp-derived CBD.

4. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FEEL THE EFFECTS OF CBD?

Properties of CBD will vary for each individual depending on height, weight, and the quantity of CBD taken. Because there are no intoxicating ingredients with CBD oil, there is no “high” effect; start with small amounts and gradually increase with each use until reaching desired results. Every person is different, for someone it takes 1 month or more, for others it takes few days to feel the effects of CBD.

5. WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS?

Cannabinoids are molecular compounds naturally made from Cannabis sativa plants; however, they are also found in other plants and produce inside our bodies. Cannabinoids are classified as fatty compounds that play vital roles within our immune and central nervous system.

6. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA?

Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant family, Cannabis sativa. The main difference between the two is their level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the illegal, psychotropic cannabinoid. According to the Agricultural Act of 2014, American legislation describes legal hemp plants as containing less than 0.3 percent THC.

7. WILL I NEED MARIJUANA CARD OR DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION TO USE GRAMINA PRODUCTS?

Our products contain hemp-based CBD, which is federally legal to be purchased anywhere in the U.S. without a marijuana card or doctor's prescription. Please check your local laws to verify that CBD is legal in your state.

8. WILL USING CBD OIL SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?

While hemp-based CBD products are manufactured from hemp plants containing less than 0.3% THC, there are still trace amounts. There is a small percentage that consuming CBD may lead to a positive drug test for THC, as it does with any product made from hemp. If this is a significant concern, we advise speaking with your employer or doctor before use.

9. WHAT’S THE PROPER WAY TO STORE CBD PRODUCTS?

Store products in a dry, cool area with no direct exposure to constant light or excessive heat. For any questions, please contact us at 1-321-947-2413 or sales@gramina.us.

10. WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE USED IN GRAMINA’S FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL?

Gramina products use whole plant, USA-grown industrial hemp. We keep our material as close to mother nature as possible. So, we do not use any artificial flavors, if you want to feel the full potency of a whole plant, Gramina is the best choice for you. Gramina CBD oil is combined with MCT oil.

11. IS THERE AN EXPIRATION DATE OF THE CBD PRODUCTS?

With proper storage, quality is maintained up to two years for Gramina products.

12. HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?

Because each person’s body structure is unique, it is difficult to set a predetermined measurement that is right for everyone. CBD isn’t currently regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and there are no official recommended dosages. There are many researches about dosing CBD oil, read here.

13. WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT?

The emphasis on the word “real” above is critical because the entourage effect can only occur if all the components naturally found within the cannabis plant (cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids) are still present after extraction and/or manufacturing of a full spectrum CBD product.

If a single cannabinoid is missing from the final product, the entourage effect cannot be obtained; this also means you were not consuming a full spectrum product.

The entourage effect is the result of the collegial symbiotic relationship of all naturally occurring cannabinoids found within the hemp plant.

In layman’s terms, it is the result of all cannabinoids working together harmoniously to produce the effect that nature intended it to.

14. HOW TO TAKE CBD?

Shake well before use.

Fill dropper with CBD oil.

Place drops under the tongue.

Leave under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and ingest.
