CBD Hemp Oil: Frequently Asked Questions

The following information is presented for educational purposes only. Medical Marijuana Inc. provides this information to provide an understanding of the potential applications of cannabinoids. Links to third party websites do not constitute an endorsement of these organizations by Medical Marijuana Inc. and none should be inferred.

1. What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is just one of over 85 cannabinoids discovered so far in the different types of cannabis, including marijuana and hemp. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than marijuana, and because it is non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most health potential by researchers. We suggest you do your own research on CBD and cannabinoids.

2. Are your products legal?

CBD from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship in the United States. Our CBD hemp oil is an imported hemp product, and contains less than 0.3% THC by weight and is thus exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act.

Marijuana laws become less uniform on a global level. If you’d like to know if CBD hemp oil is legal in your country, contact us or check with your local authorities.

3. Will your products get me high?

No, they won’t. Our products are all made with high-CBD, low-THC hemp oil. CBD is non-psychoactive, and THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, is only present in trace amounts – not nearly enough to cause the high associated with marijuana.

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) or other legal natural hemp based constituents.  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 and consult with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer.

For those looking to avoid the trace levels of THC in traditional CBD supplements, we now offer RSHO-X™. Our first completely THC-free hemp oil product, RSHO-X™ has undergone a proprietary filtration process that eliminates all cannabinoids except for CBD.

5. Why does your hemp oil come in a syringe?

Our RSHO™ comes in a syringe for easier measuring of doses and more convenient dispensing. There is no needle, and our RSHO™ is typically applied to a spoon or butter knife and taken orally. You don’t inject our CBD hemp oil.

6. Are your products safe?

Yes. All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, so our quality starts with our hemp plants.

From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we test our hemp oil multiple times to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold, as well as cannabinoid content.

We also use a supercritical CO2 method when we extract our hemp oil, instead of harsh solvents. CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.

Visit our Quality & Safety page for more information.

7. Do I need a medical card to buy your products?

No. Because our products are dietary supplements, 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. We recommend you start low and work your way up to larger amounts if desired. We also strongly recommend that whatever product you choose, you consume it to completion before making your decision about if CBD hemp oil is right for you.

If you have questions about which CBD product may be best, please contact our customer service department.

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.

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. Typically, CBD products fall under one of two categories: topicals, which are applied externally, or dietary supplements, which are taken internally.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. has a wide selection of products featuring different flavors, potencies, and consistencies.

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. It’s important to keep in mind that hemp and marijuana are simply different varieties of the same plant, cannabis sativa L. The defining characteristic that makes hemp different from marijuana is its extremely low volume of THC.

One of the major selling points for getting your CBD from hemp instead of marijuana is hemp’s exceptionally low THC level, which allows for a higher CBD intake with none of the effects of THC.

12. What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and the hemp products I buy at the grocery store?

Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.

Our CBD hemp oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.

13. What is in your hemp oil?

Besides CBD, our hemp oil contains various other cannabinoids, Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, and over a dozen vitamins and minerals, like iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and beta-Carotene, often missing from the average diet.

14. Where does your hemp come from?

From family farms in Europe where hemp has been cultivated for generations. After exhaustive research into the political, economic, and agricultural landscape of growing hemp, we settled on Northern Europe as the ideal location to grow our crops. When we discovered a farming cooperative of 750 families nestled in the idyllic countryside, we knew we found the partners we were looking for to cultivate the hemp used in our products.

Our hemp comes from Europe because domestic cultivation of hemp for commercial use in the U.S. is illegal, but hemp oil imported from outside the country is legal for use in our entire line of CBD hemp oil products.

15. Why should I use CBD from natural sources?

Unlike synthetically created or chemically derived CBD, which removes the cannabinoid from the rest of the plant’s extract, our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant in a process that also pulls all of the plant’s fatty acids, waxes, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and terpenes and flavonoids, along with the various cannabinoids present, 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.

Synthetic CBD is also a controlled substance in the United States.

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 or any other cannabinoid for any medical indications and does not currently regard it as having medicinal benefit.

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 benefits 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 health related 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. As previously mentioned in this document, our products are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, and our hemp oil is extracted using CO2, instead of the toxic solvents some other companies use. Additionally, our products are tested multiple times throughout our production process before being sold. We’re proud to have received the testimonials of our testing partners among the many accolades of our products.

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.

Best of all, we’re here to help you decide if CBD hemp oil is right for you. Our customer service team is available by phone at (844) 710-6562, or email at [email protected] to answer all your questions.
