Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the primary phytocannabinoid in the hemp plant. Phytocannabinoids are plant produced cannabinoids that interact with and regulate the human endocannabinoid system. Over 100+ phytocannabinoids have been found in the hemp plant. Phytocannabinoids may be consumed in order to supplement a deficient endocannabinoid system.
What does CBD do?
CBD is essentially a regulator of homeostasis, or chemical balance, in the endocannabinoid system, which extends throughout the entire body and brain.
CBD used topically will not enter the bloodstream, but can provide targeted, localized relief as it will interact with cannabinoid receptors in your skin, subdermal, and subcutaneous tissue.
Can hemp or CBD get you high?
No! Hemp and hemp-derived CBD won't get you high. Hemp is defined as all cannabis plants that contain less than 0.3% THC, so by definition hemp is non-psychoactive and won't get you high. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that doesn't get you high like THC does. THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana that makes one "high". All of our hemp products contain <0.3% THC, and we also offer many THC-Free options as well.
CBD Oil vs. Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp produces two types of oil, hemp extract (which contains CBD) and hemp seed oil (which does not contain CBD, but contains omega 3-6-9). We combine them both to create a complete hemp supplement!
What is the Entourage Effect?
The "Entourage Effect" is the name for the concept that the various compounds in plants, like hemp, are most effective in concert rather than in isolated form (CBD Isolate). Broad-spectrum and full-spectrum extracts provide two similar forms of the entourage effect because they both contain CBD as well as beneficial compounds like terpenes which work in synergy with the cannabinoids.
Full-spectrum Hemp Extract vs. Broad-spectrum Hemp Extract vs. CBD Isolate?
At Cypress Hemp, we use both full-spectrum and broad-spectrum hemp extracts for our CBD products. Read more below to determine which is best for you!
Is CBD oil legal?
Hemp and hemp-derived CBD was made federally legal on December 20, 2018! Hemp has been forever removed from the controlled substance act and is now defined as an agricultural commodity, just like corn.
How is Cypress Hemp different from other CBD companies?
Our CBD+OMEGAS Drops are also a unique combination of CBD-rich hemp extract and omega-rich hemp seed oil. By combining hemp seed oil with hemp extract, this makes for a complete hemp supplement that offers CBD and a plant-based source of omegas 3-6-9 in the ideal ratio for human health.
How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
Every situation is unique to the individual, but many people have reported feeling the benefits of CBD within 25 minutes. There has also been additional reported benefits from consistent usage over time.
Do you offer a military, veteran, or first-responder discounts?
First of all, thank you for your service! We do offer generous military, veteran, and first responder discounts.
Does CBD help with... ?
The long list of potential benefits from CBD continues to expand along with the growing body of scientific research. We also have hempy customers that have reported benefits with just about every application that one could think of! However, due to regulations we can not make specific statements on the use of CBD products for particular diseases or conditions.
Is CBD safe?
Yes! The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated there is ZERO reports of abuse or addition, and that CBD is well tolerated and has a good safety profile. To date, there is no evidence of any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
Dosage? How do I use CBD?
In general, much of the initial process with CBD is about finding your ideal personal dosage. Because CBD is used for such a wide range of applications, and each application ranges in severity, there is not a standardized dosage system.
