Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is a non-psychoactive component of the marijuana plant. CBD does not make you high.
Within the human body there is the endocannabinoid system (click to see more information) that has receptors that spread throughout the brain and body. CBD actually binds to those receptors. Receptors are heavily concentrated in the central nervous system, but others are found in almost every organ of the body. This includes the skin, digestive tract, and reproductive organs.
CBD is like a key into the cannabinoid receptor lock.
The four primary purposes of the endocannabinoid system are neuroprotection, stress recovery, immune balance, and homeostatic regulation. CBD taps into this system because it has a similar composition to the chemicals produced naturally in our body.
THC is the cannabinoid that causes the psychoactive effect of feeling “high or stoned” and is present in high levels in marijuana. Our CBD is derived from industrial hemp, NOT marijuana
THC levels in our products are federally compliant and so minuscule that they will not appear on a drug screen for 99.9% of people. Those in zero tolerance careers, federal employees, and those in pain management programs may want to consult their employer or prescribing physician before using our products as some entities have zero tolerance for any THC within the system, regardless of the law.
Industrial Hemp has been federally legal since the Agricultural Act of 2014, also known as The Farm Bill (click to see more information). This legislation was passed by Congress, and signed in to law by President Obama in 2014.
There can be a lot of confusion over the legality of marijuana versus Industrial Hemp, which is why the long and short answer is this: Industrial Hemp (and the oil that comes from the crop) is legal, both state-wide and federally, throughout the country. You can purchase our products online, and they can be sold in various parts of the country.
Industrial hemp and marijuana are both part of the “Cannabis Sativa” family in the same way eggplants and tomatoes are part of the “Nightshade” family. Technically classified in the same category, but ultimately offering very different properties. In order to be considered industrial hemp the plant must contain no more than .3% THC. Not only is it tested internally by the farm, it is subject to testing by state officials every year. If the THC were to ever surpass the .3% level the crop would legally have to be destroyed.
Since we all have different metabolisms, body mass, levels of pain and inflammation, tolerance or sensitivity to medication, etc., finding your individual dosage requires some personal observation in the beginning. We have seen people respond well to 10mg and others who require 100mg for efficacy. We suggest that when initially starting take one serving (capsule or dropper) and wait for 20-30 minutes and observe how you feel. If you still don’t feel the relief you are seeking repeat the process until you reach your desired effect. Once you know your personal dosage in milligrams pay attention to how long it lasts before starting to wear off. We have clients that take it once in the morning and are good for the rest of the day and clients who take it every 4 hours as needed.
No, not really. If you were to ingest more than your body can absorb it would just pass through your system just like other supplements. The most unfavorable thing that would happen in this case is that your are wasting your money on extra product that you don’t need, so it is important that you pay attention in the beginning while exploring your perfect dosage.
Phytocannabinoid content, a naturally occurring element in our oils, can produce varying degrees of color and odor within the oil. Like a fine wine, fluctuation in plant maturity, crop materials, aging, weather, and time of harvest may affect color and odor of the oil. These elements do not affect the quality or potency of the product. At Red Barn Hemp, we strive to maintain consistency across every product produced, though variations are natural and can be expected.
All of our products are backed by a Certificate of Analysis. If you’d like to view the certificates and learn more, they can be viewed on our premises, at 33814 S Meridian Rd, Woodburn, OR, 97071.
