Can CBD produce intoxication?
No. The “high” that is commonly associated with the marijuana plant is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Industrial hemp that CBD is extracted from is legally required by the State of Wisconsin to contain less than .3% THC. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection tests all Wisconsin-grown hemp to ensure compliance.
What is the difference between CBD and Marijuana?
Marijuana and hemp are both varieties of cannabis plant. As noted above, CBD that is extracted from industrial hemp contains very little THC, which is the chemical in Marijuana that is responsible for its psychoactive effects. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
Does CBD have any known negative side effects?
CBD itself has no known negative side-effects. CBD is considered non-toxic for humans, even in high doses. Pure CBD oil that is extracted using high-quality methods, like the CO2 extraction method used by the OWL, tends to be more effective and is less likely to cause any negative side effects.
On rare occasions, users have reported experiencing dry mouth, drowsiness, and low blood pressure.
At the Owl, we encourage you to consult with your health care professional regarding the use of CBD, and any supplements or medications.
How do I take CBD?
Most CBD is taken orally, via drops placed under the tongue. You should hold the drops under your tongue for up to 1 minute before swallowing. CBD can also be applied topically for pain relief applications.
