As CBD continues to grow as the latest wellness trend on the market, many consumers have the same basic questions about CBD, including what CBD is, whether CBD is legal, how to use CBD products, and many more. Here we answer your CBD questions and give you links to learn more about each topic.
1. What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabis-derived cannabinoid that encourages wellness by interacting with the body’s native systems. CBD is popularly used as a supplement to encourage balance.
For more information on CBD, please visit our What is CBD oil? page.
2. Are your CBD products legal?
Yes. CBD products made from hemp are federally legal in the United States and available in over 40 countries internationally.
For more information on the legality of CBD oil, please visit our Is CBD Legal? page.
3. Will your CBD products get me high?
No. CBD itself is non-intoxicating and our CBD oil products are made with high-CBD, low-THC hemp oil.
You can learn more on our Will CBD Get Me High? page.
4. Does cannabidiol (CBD) and other natural hemp based constituents show up on a drug test?
Most workplace drug screens and tests target Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD). However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not ingest our products before consulting with your healthcare provider, drug screening/testing company, or employer.
5. Why does your hemp oil come in a syringe?
Our RSHO™ comes in what we call an oral applicator for easier measuring of doses and more convenient dispensing. It isn’t really a syringe. There is no needle. Our RSHO™ is dispensed by pressing on the plunger and is typically applied to a spoon and taken orally. You don’t inject our CBD hemp oil.
6. Are your products safe?
Yes. Because our CBD oil is non-intoxicating and put through rigorous safety measures, including our Triple Lab Tested™ process, to ensure their safety and top quality.
7. Do I need a medical card to buy your products?
No. Because our products are made from hemp, there is no need to obtain a doctor’s recommendation or to live in a medical marijuana state to have our products delivered to your door. However, before beginning any new supplement routine, it is suggested you consult your doctor.
8. How much CBD should I take?
This is a difficult question to answer because our customers find differences in their personally optimal serving size. Our CBD oil products have suggested serving sizes between a few milligrams and hundreds of milligrams of CBD.
Get more information on finding the right CBD serving size that works for you.
9. Will your products cure/treat my…?
Because our CBD hemp oil products are categorized as dietary supplements in the United States, we comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any specific medical benefits of CBD or our hemp oil products.
We encourage you to browse the thousands of reputable studies regarding CBD published online, and talk with your doctor to see if a CBD supplement is right for you.
10. Which CBD hemp oil product is right for me?
This will very much depend on your own personal preference, desired CBD quantities, and preferred means of application.

11. Is CBD from hemp as good as CBD from marijuana?
As far as your body is concerned, CBD is CBD, regardless of whether it comes from marijuana or hemp. However, there are several important differences between CBD products from hemp and marijuana, including legality, potency, intoxicating effects, and more.

12. What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and the hemp products I buy at the grocery store?
Most hemp products sold in grocery stores are made with hemp seed oil, which contains only trace amounts of CBD. Our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars that are naturally high in CBD for a much higher level of CBD in our products.

13. What is in your full spectrum hemp oil?
Besides CBD, our nutritious full spectrum pure CBD oil contains dozens of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, as well as various other cannabinoids.

14. Where does your hemp come from?
Our non-GMO hemp is grown on generational farms in Europe where hemp has been cultivated for decades. Our farms cultivate our hemp without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers.

15. Why should I use CBD from natural sources?
Our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant in a process that also pulls all of the plant’s nutrients and compounds for a more complete dietary supplement. Often called the “entourage effect”, this method of using CBD takes advantage of the whole plant, letting the body interact with the hemp in its natural state. For consumers looking to avoid even trace amounts of THC, we also offer products made with CBD isolate derived from the same hemp oil used in all our products.
16. I heard the FDA was shutting down CBD companies. Is this true?
The FDA has warned companies marketing CBD products not to make any claims about the use of CBD to treat or prevent disease. This is due to the fact that the FDA has not approved CBD oil for any medical indications.
We were not among the companies warned by the FDA, and as an industry leader, we make it a point to remain conservatively compliant with all FDA guidelines. We never make claims about the medical effects of our products and, instead, encourage you to do your own research and discuss your concerns with your doctor before starting any new dietary supplement.
17. Why should I buy CBD from Medical Marijuana, Inc.?
We strongly suggest customers purchase any products from a source they can trust. As the company responsible for creating the CBD hemp oil product category, a safe, legal way to give millions of people access to these products, we feel that anyone considering CBD products should start with us.
We also lead the industry in our production and product testing guidelines. Learn more about our products and production process here.
Our CBD product lines have been chosen as the first legally available products by major foreign markets like Brazil and Mexico. This distinction from doctors and health authorities around the world is unparalleled.
