What is CBD?

CBD is a natural compound extracted from the Industrial Hemp plant.

How can CBD help?

CBD has been known to help with

– Pain relief
– Stress/Relaxation
– Sleep
– Anxiety
– Focus
– and many more conditions

Will CBD get me “High”?

No.  CBD is non-psychoactive, non-addicting and non-intoxicating.

Are there any side effects of using Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Extract?

According to a report from the World Health Organization, “no public health problems have been associated with the use of pure CBD”.

CBD can interact with prescription drugs.  For people using prescriptions, we always recommend consulting with your physician first.

Is Hemp CBD the same as Marijuana “Weed”?

No, they are two different plants. Hemp has a higher concentration of pure CBD and a much lower concentration of THC (less than 0.3% as federal regulations limit) and is non-psychoactive.  Marijuana is the opposite – higher concentration THC and lower concentration of CBD.

What is the Endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

ECS is a system within the human body that produces natural cannabinoids that interact with ECS receptors in the brain and other areas of the body.

ECS specific functions include:

– Appetite
– Pain
– Sleep
– Mood
– Memory
– Sensation
– Immune System

Will I have trouble with drug tests using CBD?

Since there is a trace amount of THC in Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, there is a possibility of a positive reading during a drug test.  Our tests have not shown any positives, but we recommend consulting with your physician and employer if this is a concern. There are CBD Isolate products available, as well as new Broad Spectrum, THC-Free oils available that contain 0% THC.  You should only trust companies that have independent lab testing to guarantee that no trace amounts of THC exist in their products.

Can I take CBD products along with other prescription medication?

As with any dietary supplement we recommend consulting with your physician.

Methods of Consumption

Tinctures and Paste

Tinctures are the most popular form of consumption for using CBD hemp oil. They can be taken in droplet form and placed under the tongue, or mixed with any liquid and then consumed.  A huge variety of strengths are available, ranging from 10mg to 3,000mg per 100ml (one ounce).  However, different bodies have different requirements and tolerances, and it may take a little experimentation to find the perfect one for each individual.

Capsules, Caplets, Soft Gels

Capsules are a fairly new method of medicating. They come in different varieties containing different milligrams of CBD for the pain or inflammation.

Topicals, patches, lotions, sprays, and balms

CBD oil can be used topically (on the skin) to help relieve pain from certain conditions. People with arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle and joint pains can testify to the easing of the aches and pains that they feel on a regular basis.

Why we chose Clean Remedies?

Clean Remedies CBD Oil is the highest quality full spectrum hemp extract we have found to date. Their price per dosage is also the best we’ve found.  When you couple the highest quality with the best price per milligram of CBD, you can’t go wrong. Their regular strength bottle contains 900 milligrams of CBD and their high strength bottle contains 3,000 milligrams of CBD.  Check your bottles carefully, you might be surprised at how much less you are getting for your money.

We personally have experienced great results from both topical creams and tinctures. Bill Russell – CrossFit Cleveland, Co-Founder
