MOST POPULAR: CBD QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a non-intoxicating natural medicine that is derived from the cannabis sativa plant.

CBD is just one of numerous pharmacologically active compounds called cannabinoids that can be extracted from cannabis and used for therapeutic value.

Cannabinoids like CBD bind to special receptors in the body. Together, this biological network of receptors make up what is known as the endocannabinoid system, or the ECS. This system regulates mood balance, fear perception, fight-or-flight response, memory, emotional outlook, sleep/wake cycles, pain sensation, motor control, immune system function, and body temperature.

How does CBD work?

Organica Naturals CBD is pharmacologically active. In other words, it can bind to various receptors within the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and interact with them in a way that causes physical changes as a result.

CBD has a highly diverse ECS receptor profile. Therefore, it exhibits a broad spectrum of action as it affects neural pathways in the spinal cord, the brain, the hippocampus, and the amygdala. Many of the benefits from CBD are not yet fully understood, but are likely due to complex pharmacological interactions that point to cannabinoid (CB) receptors 1 and 2.

Both CB1 and CB2 receptors are directly affected by CBD. The majority of CB1 receptors are found in the hippocampus and amygdala, but they also span across pain pathways of the spinal cord and the brain. These areas are part of a system that controls memory, fear perception, the fight-or-flight response, pain sensation, and emotion. CB2 receptors are found in immune cells, lymph tissue, and peripheral nerve terminals, where anti-inflammatory responses are activated by CBD.

CBD is also a neurotransmitter modulator that inhibits reuptake of Serotonin, Dopamine, and GABA neurotransmitters. This increases neurotransmitter availability within post-synaptic neurons to enhance serotonergic activity, nerve-impulse transmission, and cell-to-cell communication. Neurotransmitter balance plays a key role in the regulation of normal body functions, including mood balance, emotional outlook, sleep/wake cycle, and memory function.

Who should take CBD?

Organica Naturals CBD is a safe, non-intoxicating natural medicine that is indicated for adults and teens ages 18 and older.

Speak with a healthcare practitioner for use in children under 18.

Is CBD right for me?

Everybody is unique, so it's difficult to say with certainty whether CBD is right for you.

We want you to experience the life-changing benefits of CBD today. But the only way to know for sure is to try CBD for yourself!

Take advantage of our Buy w/ Confidence 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee as a first-time customer. Try out any of our single-bottle formulas — you'll have a full eight weeks — and send it back to us for a full refund if you're not absolutely thrilled with your results, no questions asked!

What does "full spectrum" CBD mean?

When a CBD formula is "full spectrum," it means that it contains the entire range of phytocannabinoids derived from cannabis. This includes an insignificant amount of THC that is less than 0.3%.

What does "zero high" mean?

Many people want to feel the life-changing benefits of CBD. But they have been put off by THC, the psychoactive component that traditionally comes along with other CBD formulas. Most CBD formulas, in fact, contain THC in minuscule amounts.

Our Zero High™ brand CBD Oil Isolate contains no THC whatsoever. We've engineered our Zero High™ line of CBD products with a radically purified (99.77%) form of CBD isolate that's pharmaceutical grade — it's so pure, it's clear!

Zero High™ THC-Free CBD Oil Isolate is independently tested and guaranteed to have 0.00% THC or your money back.

Which strength of CBD is right for me?

Knowing which strength CBD formula you need is really simple to figure out!

Firstly, the varying milligram amounts signify low (250-500mg), mid-range (1000mg), high (2500mg), and maximum (5000mg) CBD dose concentration. Each unique formula provides a higher dose of cannabidiol — the active ingredient in our products — per 1 mL dropper.

  • 250mg pocket size 15 mL formula
    1.0mg per drop (16.7mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 500mg concentrated 30 mL formula
    1.0mg per drop (16.7mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 1000mg ultra concentrated 30 mL formula
    2.0mg per drop (33.3mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 2500mg super concentrated 30 mL formula
    5.0mg per drop (83.3mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 5000mg hyper concentrated formula
    10.0mg per drop (166.7mg/1 mL dropper)

How strong your CBD formula will vary depending on your unique wellness concerns. Speak with your primary healthcare provider about dosage recommendations if you are not sure.

Is there THC in CBD?

It depends on the type of CBD.

Organica Naturals CBD is extracted in two unique ways, so some products contain THC and some do not.

Full Spectrum CBD formulas are extracted in a way that preserves the entire spectrum of cannabinoids in addition to cannabidiol — the active ingredient in Organica Naturals CBD — and so all full spectrum products contain trace levels of THC (<0.3%).

We use a separate extraction process to create a radically pure CBD isolate that we use in our Zero High™ brand CBD formulas. These products are independently tested and verified to contain no THC whatsoever (0.00%).

Is CBD the same as marijuana?

Cannabis sativa is a plant species that includes both the hemp plant and the marijuana plant.

Hemp is a variety of cannabis that contains significant levels of cannabidiol (CBD) but only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component associated with the "high" produced by marijuana.

Hemp-based cannabis contains 0.3% or less THC, so it is very different from marijuana.

Will I get high if I take CBD?

No, CBD is non-intoxicating and cannot cause psychoactive effects.

Can CBD show up on a drug test?

You may test positive on a drug screening that specifically tests for THC if you are taking a CBD product that also contains THC, however minuscule the amount. It is not advisable to use a Full Spectrum CBD formula if you are randomly drug screened for this reason.

Organica Naturals Zero High™ brand CBD Oil Isolate formulas are guaranteed to be 100% THC-Free or your money back.¹

 

¹ Each product batch is tested by an independent 3rd-party facility to verify 0.00% THC content.
How much CBD should I take?

Knowing which strength CBD formula you need is really simple to figure out!

Firstly, the varying milligram amounts signify low (250-500mg), mid-range (1000mg), high (2500mg), and maximum (5000mg) CBD dose concentration. Each unique formula provides a higher dose of cannabidiol — the active ingredient in our products — per 1 mL dropper.

  • 250mg pocket size 15 mL formula
    1.0mg per drop (16.7mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 500mg concentrated 30 mL formula
    1.0mg per drop (16.7mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 1000mg ultra concentrated 30 mL formula
    2.0mg per drop (33.3mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 2500mg super concentrated 30 mL formula
    5.0mg per drop (83.3mg/1 mL dropper)
  • 5000mg hyper concentrated formula
    10.0mg per drop (166.7mg/1 mL dropper)

Gradually increasing and moderating your CBD intake to find the most effective daily dose is called titration. This process ensures that you are taking the right amount of CBD, based on your individual response to the formula.

Begin by taking ¼ mL to ½ mL CBD oil (measured using the included graduated dropper). Wait four to six hours between doses. Increase the number of drops per dose as needed until effects are apparent.

CBD maintains an excellent safety profile that shows it is generally well-tolerated, even in very high doses. That means it’s safe to vary your daily CBD intake to find what feels right for you over time. Usage statistics show that most people take an average of about 1 mL CBD in their preferred strength daily.

How much CBD you take may differ from that of others depending on your individual wellness concerns. Some CBD users, for example, only need to take CBD as needed while others take CBD two or more times daily for best results.

When will I see benefits from CBD?

Most people taking CBD for the very first time report noticeable benefits within just one or two days. The time it takes for you to see benefits will vary from that of other CBD users, because everybody is unique. CBD benefits should not take longer than two weeks to become apparent. Only you know how much CBD is helping you to feel better.

CBD may not be right for everyone. Stop use and talk to your doctor if you experience no benefit whatsoever, or, if you experience an adverse reaction after taking CBD.

Will CBD cause side effects?

Clinical study shows that CBD is remarkably safe to take — even in very high doses — and side effects are extremely rare.

Reported CBD side effects include appetite changes (decrease/increase) or somnolence. Side effects are typically mild and transient, lasting no more than four to six hours.

ORGANICA NATURALS CBD PRODUCT Q&A

What's in Organica Naturals CBD?

Organica Naturals CBD products contain a plant-derived medicine called cannabidiol, or CBD for short. CBD is a non-intoxicating pharmacologically active biochemical that is extracted from cannabis sativa.

We use pure MCT oil made from organic coconuts to act as a carrier that ensures maximum absorption of cannabinoid phytonutrients.

No other additives, flavors, or preservatives are used in Organica Naturals CBD products.

Where do you source your CBD from?

Our cannabis plants are from Colorado and California, where they grow outdoors under natural sunlight using organic and sustainable farming practices. The plants we use are non-GMO and pesticide free.

How do you process your CBD extracts?

We utilize two different advanced extraction methods to safely derive Organica Naturals CBD.

Zero High™ CBD Oil Isolates are made using organic, food-grade ethanol. This extraction method produces the pharmaceutical grade (99.77%) cannabidiol we use in all of our Zero High™ CBD formulas. There is no THC whatsoever in our Zero High™ product family.

Our Full Spectrum CBD Oil Extracts are made using supercritical CO2 gas extraction. This inert extraction method does not require heat or solvents, so it protects the integrity of the entire spectrum of phytonutrients — synergistic cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and other medicinal compounds — derived from cannabis.

Are your CBD products 3rd-party tested?

We use an independent, 3rd-party laboratory to scientifically test every batch of Organica Naturals CBD as a part of our manufacturing process!

The facilities we use to test our products utilize gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in order to verify the levels of cannabidiol and other phytonutrients in our premium CBD extracts, so you get exactly what we say is in each bottle.

How much THC is in Organica Naturals CBD?

Organica Naturals CBD is extracted in two unique ways, so some products contain THC and some do not.

How does Zero High™ differ from Full Spectrum?

Organica Naturals Zero High™ CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum CBD are identical when it comes to how much of the active ingredient cannabidiol they contain.

Where the two products differ is the amount of THC they contain. Zero High™ CBD products are made using a radically purified (99.77%) form of CBD. There are no other phytocannabinoids present in our CBD isolate, and each product batch is independently tested to confirm 0.00% THC content.

Our Full Spectrum CBD formulas contain the entire spectrum of phytocannabinoids derived from cannabis, including an insignificant amount of THC that is less than 0.3% by volume.
