Is CBD Legal?
Although marijuana is not currently legal in Texas, the legal status of CBD is. The fact is that as long as a CBD derived product is derived from legally grown industrial hemp (which ours is) and contains less than 0.3% THC (which ours does) it is legal in Texas and all 50 States. 100% organic. 100% Made in U.S.A.
How to take CBD Oil?
CBD is most commonly taken orally in concentrated drops. To take CBD oil first hold under the tongue for about 20-40 seconds to be absorbed in the mouth prior to swallowing. This step is important because some of the CBD taken will be broken down by the digestive system. Other oral methods include capsules or sprays.
What types of CBD do you offer?
Cooperative Cures offers two types of highly effective CBD Oil, We offer a 99% Pure TCH free CBD isolate for those who wish to find relief with out trace THC in the formula.
Cooperative Cure also offer a Full Spectrum CBD oil. Full spectrum CBD oil, unlike CBD isolate products, includes a wider range of cannabinoids present in the cannabis or hemp plant. Depending on the condition and what you are looking to achieve it can provide a greater effect than CBD alone as all the cannabinoids work together. However it does contain 0.3% non psychoactive THC. Some working adults might choose to stay with isolate so there are no low levels of THC in the blood.
How much should I take?
CBD is none toxic to the body. You can not overdose because it is a natural product, but if you take too much it could upset your stomach. Please see our isolate or Full Spectrum CBD sections. There are dosage instructions in the additional information sections.
There is one place in the body where there is no endocannabinoid system and no cannabinoid receptors – the brain stem. The brain stem is the control center for the heart and breathing. This means that it is not possible for cannabinoids to overwhelm those systems and cause them to shut down. This is why, in more than 4,000 years, no one has ever died from consuming hemp.
Should I take CBD Every Day?
Yes - take CBD every day for 30 days. Begin once a day for 5 days then move to twice a day every 8 hours. This will allow the receptors in your brain and body to begin to awaken.
How long before I begin to feel the effects?
You should start to feel the healing effect at about day 14, but it will take a full 30 days for your receptors to fully engage.
What is the difference between CBD & HEMP OIL?
This is an important question. Hemp Oil only contains about 6% CBD and is used in mostly infused food products. So beware of marketing that is selling Hemp Oil based products with out the proper percentage of CBD. If the bottle does not specifically specify CBD oil and a % higher than 6% CBD you have purchased a product that will have no therapeutic value.
Is Hemp and Marijuana the same?
NO, they are just both part of the Cannabis family.
Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application.
Marijuana, as it is widely known, is used for medicinal or recreational purposes. Hemp is used in variety of other applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and accessories. Overall, hemp is known to have numerous applications.
The main difference between the two is in its chemical composition, specifically in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical responsible marijuana’s psychological effects. An average batch of marijuana contains anywhere from 5-20% THC content. Some premium marijuana can have up to 25-30% THC. Hemp, on the other hand, has a max THC level of 0.3%, essentially making it impossible to feel any psychoactive effect or get a “high”. This threshold is heavily regulated in other countries that have legalized hemp. Hemp also has high cannabidiol (CBD) content that acts as THC’s antagonist, essentially making the minimal amount of THC useless.
Marijuana looks contrastingly different from hemp. When you observe their leaves, marijuana’s shape tends to either be broad leafed, a tight bud, or look like a nugget with orange hairs. Hemp, on the other hand, has skinnier leaves that are concentrated at the top. Few branches or leaves exist below the top part of the plant. When you observe the plants from afar, marijuana looks like a short fat bush. Hemp is typically skinnier and taller (up to 20 ft). At times, it almost looks like long ditch weed – hemp was actually found to grow among weeds in Nebraska. In general, when you compare a marijuana farm with those of industrial hemp, you’ll notice that they are clearly very different from one another.
The environment in which hemp and marijuana are grown is strikingly different. Hemp is grown closely together (as close as 4 inches apart) and are typically grown in large multi-acre plots. It can also grow in variety of climates and its growth cycle is 108-120 days. Unlike hemp, marijuana requires a carefully controlled, warm, and humid atmosphere for proper growth. Its growth cycle only 60-90 days. Medical cannabis also cannot be grown too close to each other. They are typically grown 6 feet apart. If, somehow, marijuana grows among (or close to) a hemp field, the hemp’s pollen would immediately ruin the marijuana crop, diluting marijuana’s psycho activity.
Do hemp plants produce a bud like the marijuana plant?
NO! THC-producing Marijuana must be grown in generally warm and humid environments in order to produce the desired quantity and quality of THC-containing buds. However, since industrial hemp does not contain these buds, and the hardy parts of the plant are the more desired, it can be grown in a wider range of areas.
Marijuana is a horticultural crop grown for its THC content, while hemp is an agricultural crop grown for seed and fiber.
Industrial hemp does not include any of the chemicals that make marijuana a drug.
