FAQ

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bid-i-ol), a prominent naturally occurring class of molecules called cannabinoids found in the plant genus Cannabis Sativa L. CBD comprises up to 40% of the plant and is one of over 60 plus compounds found in cannabis. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied.

CBD is a non- psychoactive component of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause a high, unlike THC. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that uses naturally-occurring cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells. When there is a deficiency in these cannabinoids, it can lead to any number of conditions and medical ailments. CBD works to replenish these natural cannabinoids, and therefore return our cells to a healthy, balanced state.

WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

As we’ve mentioned, every single person has an endocannabinoid system (ECS), whether they’ve consumed cannabis before in their lives or not. The ECS consists of naturally-occurring endocannabinoids (such as anandamide) and their corresponding receptors (such as CB-1 and CB-2 receptors). While research into this system is still young, doctors have found these natural cannabinoid compounds and their receptors to exist in virtually every cell and organ system in the human body, and have discovered they play a key regulatory role in whole-body health and homeostasis. Among other things, the ECS has been shown to help regulate our sleep cycles, our pain and immune response systems, our inflammation response, and even our emotional response to social stimuli.


When there is a deficiency in this natural ECS network, any one of the above-mentioned systems may be thrown out of balance, which can result in an array of ailments and medical challenges. Plant-based cannabinoids (such as CBD) are a 100% natural way to correct these chemical deficiencies (without a THC-induced high), thus restoring the system back to a state of health and homeostasis.

WHAT IS CBD OIL?

CBD oil is extracted from cannabis plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of THC. At Premium Jane, our CBD oils always have less than 0.02% THC. These extracts can then be used in paste form, or mixed with other oils such as coconut or hemp seed oil to lower the viscosity of the extract. The cannabidiol (CBD) content of CBD oil varies tremendously, since the manufacturers use a varying assortment of cannabis plants and preparation techniques. We produce CBD oil with a high concentration of CBD (see corresponding lab reports) and THC levels under 0.02%.

HOW IS OUR CBD OIL MANUFACTURED?

Our hemp is grown and harvested in Switzaland. At CBD PURO we use solvent free CO2 extraction. In other words using the CO2 from the air we breathe in a low-temperature, high-pressure setting to extract the beneficial molecules.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP & MARIJUANA?

Scientifically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically different genetic profile though. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis
ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Typically speaking, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. 99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances, and only a trace amount of THC.

Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without
the ‘high.’

Hemp is used for making herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil, since marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis.

IS CBD OIL LEGAL?

There is no need for a prescription to purchase hemp CBD. It is a natural constituent of the high-CBD Hemp strains of the plant containing very low levels of THC. Having only trace amounts of THC, our hemp CBD oil is non-psychoactive and legal in the U.K CBD Oil/Hemp Oil and other hemp products are considered to be food-based. As such, there are no restrictions on the production, sale and consumption of hemp oil in the UK. CBD Oil/Hemp Oil is legal in most countries in the world as long is it contains low (or in some countries untraceable) concentrations of the molecule THC.

HOW SHOULD I STORE MY CBD? WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE?

The hemp oil in our product contains CBD, which is a LEGAL cannabinoid from hemp. It contains minuscule amounts (parts per billion) of THC that COULD show up in a drug screen, if you consume CBD oil in high quantities. CBD PURO cannot guarantee that you will or will not pass a drug screening due to the amount of variables (such as your age/weight, what kind of drug test it is, how much you exercise, what your diet is, etc). Our products contain less than 0.2% THC. Drug screens vary and some can be more sensitive than others. If you have to take a drug test, it is best to not use our product for several weeks leading up to the test.

WILL I FAIL A DRUG TEST IF I TAKE CBD PRODUCTS?

For our dietary supplements (capsules and CBD oils), we can only recommend them for internal consumption. If you don’t like the flavor of the oil supplements, you can mix with something sweet like apple sauce or honey to cut through the flavor. Oils are to be taken sublingually and held under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before being swallowed.
