Frequently Asked Questions

What does CBD do?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the second most abundant cannabinoid found in hemp (Cannabis L.) Phytocannabinoids (plant cannabinoids) from agricultural hemp, including CBD, help to promote health by maintaining balance (homeostasis) at a cellular level via the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body. The endocannabinoid system is present in virtually every organ and tissue in the body and thus governs overall health and wellbeing 

How will I feel if I take CBD?

CBD is non-psychoactive so you will not feel any type of “high” as you would with a cannabis or THC-containing product. Many people feel a sense of relaxation and well-being upon ingesting CBD due to its homeostatic (balancing) effects on the endocannabinoid system and thus find CBD products effective for stress management. CBD also interacts with our inflammatory, immune and nervous systems via its interaction with endocannabinoid receptors and thus offers natural solutions for targetted relief of inflammation and pain. 

CBD has a cumulative effect as it is stored in the body when used regularly, so your dosage of CBD is individual and may decrease over time to achieve the same effect and prolong for longer between applications. 

Is CBD legal?

Our CBD is derived from EU-imported certified organic industrial hemp and is 100% legal to purchase and ship to all 50 states. Industrial hemp contains less than 0.3% THC by weight and is thus considered food grade and exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act. Current FDA regulations prohibit the production of industrial hemp and its constituents (including CBD) in the USA, thus any CBD product must be hemp based and imported to be legally sold. 

Is CBD safe? 

CBD does not have toxicity issues or serious side effects, even in large doses. Our CBD is pharmaceutical grade and derived from certified organic industrial hemp. It is non-GMO, kosher-certified and safe to use topically and orally. We third party test every batch of S&J product to ensure its purity and potency.
