Is CBD Right for Me?

Let’s face it, the CBD market is booming. 

Everywhere you look a new CBD company has emerged, and CBD products are becoming more and more accessible. Before buying the first product you find, we believe it’s important to be educated on what you are buying. 

We have created this Buyer Guide to assist you in learning the basics of CBD and determining if CBD products are right for your needs.

Take the time to explore this page and our Frequently Asked Questions to help you decide what is perfect for you!

The Difference Between Marijuana and Hemp

Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant family, Cannabis sativa. The main difference between the two is their level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the federally illegal, psychotropic cannabinoid.

The 2018 Farm Bill, legalized hemp containing less than 0.3 percent THC.

Generally speaking, marijuana has a high amount of THC and a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally contains higher amounts of CBD and only trace amounts of THC.

Hemp is ideal for those looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’ In the US, only hemp-derived CBD oil is federally legal because it is extracted from industrial hemp containing less than 0.3 percent THC.

All A88CBD™ Oil is derived from lab tested broad-spectrum hemp

What Quality Standards Should I Look For?

With a vast CBD marketplace, it’s imperative that you know and understand what the quality standards are of the products you are buying.

For high-quality CBD oil, you should look for hemp that is grown domestically. Most hemp grown on U.S. farms have limited exposure to pesticides and are subject to high quality controls which enables superior growth quality.

Where Should I Buy CBD?

There are a few different options on where you can buy CBD oil. For example, you can purchase products online, at dispensaries, and even in some retail stores.

When you buy from dispensaries or retail stores, you often do not have access to the lab reports or purity analysis. This is due to the fact that external extractors do not need to share this information with the purchasing retailers.

We highly recommend buying your CBD Oil directly from the source, as this will ensure you have access to the lab reports to ensure quality and have the assurance that the product you are getting is what you’re paying for.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?

Cannabis is a plant of the Cannabaceae family and contains more than eighty biologically active chemical compounds. The two most commonly known compounds are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

CBD is non-intoxicating and offers a range of uses.

Will I Experience a “High” from CBD Products?

Not if you purchase CBD products that contain hemp lawfully grown and processed, pursuant to the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills because these products must contain a low THC concentration (no more than 0.3 percent) that will not get you “high.”

Is CBD Legal?

Yes. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, it is federally legal to grow and sell hemp and its derivatives, including CBD so long as they contain no more than 0.3% total THC. However, the legality of processing, manufacturing, selling and marketing of CBD products varies across state lines.

Do I Need a Marijuana Card or Doctor’s Prescription to Use CBD Products? 

CBD products may be purchased without a Marijuana Card or a prescription in states where the sale and marketing of these products is allowed. We always recommend that you check your local laws to ensure CBD is legal in your state.

Will I Fail a Drug Test Using A88CBD™ Products?

Since hemp-based CBD products can contain trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%) you may test positive for THC on a drug test - even if using a product made from hemp. Though this outcome is unlikely, we highly suggest that you speak with your doctor or employer if this should cause concern.

How is A88CBD™ Manufactured?
