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 internally enters the bloodstream and cross the blood-brain barrier, which enables it to support the balance and wellness of your entire endocannabinoid system, including the body and mind.

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! Click here to shop our CBD+OMEGAS 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! Full-spectrum hemp extracts contain high amounts of CBD, as well as 100's of other beneficial plant compounds, such as terpenes, which are naturally found in the hemp plant, and also contains a trace amount (<0.3% THC). Broad-spectrum hemp extracts contain high amounts of CBD, as well as 100's of other beneficial plant compounds, such as terpenes, which are naturally found in the hemp plant, but contain zero THC. CBD Isolate is a highly-processed single molecule powder that only contains CBD. These products are best to be avoided due to the lack of an "Entourage Effect".




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. Hemp, hemp, hooray!




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. Every purchase plants a tree! For each hemp product that we sell, we donate to reforestation charities that plant trees in areas of great importance, such as California and the Amazon after the recent wildfires. We believe in sustainability, humans and the environment living in harmony, so we use sustainable business practices such as biodegradable boxes, compostable cushioning, and investing in carbon credits to offset the emissions from shipping your package! Additionally, our founding team consists of true hemp experts, including a biological and agricultural engineer that has worked for the Hemp Research Foundation and the Hemp Industries Association.




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. Find your ideal personal dosage, then stay consistent!




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. In order to receive this discount, please email us at sustainability@cypresshemp.com with documentation to demonstrate your current or previous service.




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. Always consult with a medical professional before introducing any new products into your daily routine.




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. For internal use, it is best to start low and taper up over time until you reach your desired results. To make that process easier, all of our CBD+OMEGAS Drops feature measured droppers so that you can be precise and consistent as you move up or down in dosage each day. We recommend keeping a journal to track your results. The World Health Organization has stated there is no potential for abuse, so feel free to take more servings if you feel like you need it. Use daily; consistency is often key! For external use, apply generously as needed, and move up in strength if needed.
