What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol, is a safe, non-intoxicating, primary cannabinoid, found in the floral material of the hemp plant.
Originally patented by the United States Government as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant, CBD binds to endocannabinoid receptors throughout your body These receptors are part of the the body's endocannabinoid system or ECS. This system naturally produces endogenous cannabinoids that are chemically similar to CBD and other plant-based cannabinoids.
The endocannabinoid system supports homeostasis in the body and may maintain essential functions like: mood, sleep, appetite, metabolism, thermoregulation and more.
Is Hemp Legal?
Yes, hemp is legal in all 50 states.
The 2018 Farm Bill officially removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act and placed the crop under the Agricultural Marketing Act. The crop is now viewed as an agricultural
commodity as long as the tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] concentration is not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.
In Overcomes case, we only source from certified Kentucky grown hemp and conduct in-house and third party lab testing to ensure our formula is never over the 0.3% threshold.
Is Hemp Marijuana?
No. While hemp and marijuana are derived from the same family, both are considered to be from different varieties of the Cannabis sativa species.
Historically, hemp was grown for industrial purposes like oil, fiber and food. In more recent years, hemp has been discovered to naturally produce rich amounts of CBD and other cannabinoids. Unlike marijuana, hemp by law does not contain more than 0.3% THC, which ensures its non-intoxicating properties.
Marijuana, on the other hand, has been specifically bred for its intoxicating properties, containing strong concentrations of THC, with only trace amounts of CBD.
Will I Fail A Drug Test?
Because our products are a full spectrum hemp extract, there are trace quantities of THC present in the products at less than 0.3% THC. There is always a possibility that you may fail a drug test; however, we can provide guidance in the case that you are tested.
Initial drug tests search for the broad term of marijuana metabolites at a concentration of 50ng/ml. This test is called an “initial test.” It is likely THC present in hemp and even other cannabinoids can trigger a positive test. If the test is positive, you can request a “confirmatory test.” This test measures concentrations of 15ng/ml.
The confirmatory test would likely not trigger a positive test, but there is still a possibility because of the way the THC metabolizes in your body. We recommend when you take the test, bring your product and receipt as proof that you are in fact taking a legal hemp-derived product.
Does Nature's Hemp Oil Contain CBD?
Yes, absolutely. Each bottle will state the CBD concentration on front of the label at the bottom (250 mg, 500 mg, etc.).
At Overcome, we will also define CBD as “Hemp Extract” and should be noted that all of our products carry our full-spectrum CBD oil or “Hemp Extract” in a cold pressed hemp seed oil.
Our cold pressed hemp seed oil is what we use to hold the CBD and carry the CBD and cannabinoids throughout the body, much like how other companies may use MCT oil (coconut oil) or a grape seed oil. We selected hemp seed oil because LCT oils like hemp seed oil make the cannabinoids more bioavailable in the body. In addition, we strive to we use as much of the plant as possible to activate the entourage experience.
We pride ourselves on utilizing as much of the hemp plant as possible to tap into all of its rich nutritional benefits.
What Is Hemp Extract?
"Hemp Extract" is another industry term for CBD and its whole plant extract including terpenes, phytols, Vitamin E and chlorophyll.
This is not to be confused with hemp seed oil, which does not contain actual CBD or cannabinoids, but is commonly used as a "carrier oil" for CBD. Companies use a variety of "carrier oils", such as MCT oil (coconut oil), grape seed oil or olive oil.
With Overcome, we make an effort to utilize the entire hemp plant. Our products contain full spectrum, hemp-derived CBD or "hemp extract" and is carried within a cold pressed hemp seed oil.
What Is Full Spectrum?
Full Spectrum CBD is a combination of cannabidiol (CBD), other minor cannabinoids and terpenes - often referred to as "whole plant."
These minor cannabinoids may include but are not limited to cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidiolic-acid (CBDa), tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), tetrahydrocannabinolic-acid (THCa) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
How Much Should I Be Taking?
Depending on which bottle you order, the concentration of CBD can vary, but in most cases we recommended starting with an entire dropper full or 1 ml for the first few days and increasing until a desired effect is reached.
How Do I Administer CBD?
With tinctures or oils, the best way is to place a dropper full or 1 ml, under your tongue and let it sit for 20 - 30 seconds before swallowing. It can then be easily be washed down with some water or a beverage. We recommend taking the CBD after a meal or a high fat snack for optimal absorption.
As for our pet line, we recommend dropping the CBD onto one of your pet's favorite treats. Otherwise it can be placed directly onto their tongue.
