Veggimins CBD FAQs
Information last updated 8/1/2021
1. What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, known as CBD for short, is an active compound in cannabis commonly used to support health and wellness. While THC - the other main active compound in cannabis - is highly psychoactive (hence why it is used recreationally), CBD does not act on the same neural pathways within the brain and does not produce a high. That being said, it is normal to feel more relaxed and at ease after consuming CBD.*
2. Where Does Your CBD Come From?
Our CBD comes from organically grown, non-GMO hemp sourced right here in the USA. In order to produce the purest cannabidiol, our hemp plants have been selectively bred to maximize CBD concentration.*
3. How is Your CBD Extracted?
Our CBD is extracted at low temperatures and without the use of chemicals. Each batch of CBD is third-party lab tested and guaranteed to be free of contaminants.*
4. What is Nano CBD and Why is it Better?
The term "nano" refers to a specific particle size - a very, very small particle to be precise. Essentially, we’ve taken our organic CBD extract, and through a unique nano processing technique, reduced its particle size so it’s even easier for the body to absorb. This means a faster-acting and more bioavailable CBD.*
5. What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are the molecules in plants that give them their specific flavor profile. Beyond having a very distinct taste, certain plant terpenes also have health benefits and can impact the way we feel.*
6. Why Chocolate and CBD?
Yes, chocolate is delicious, but that's only one of a few reasons why we use it as a carrier for our CBD. Cacao, the base ingredient for all dark chocolate, is one of the most chemically complex foods on earth. The theobromine and caffeine content in cacao are vasodilators – meaning they increase circulation. This effect can also increase the body's ability to absorb and utilize medicinal ingredients such as herbs and extracts, making raw chocolate the perfect medium for something like CBD. Cacao also happens to be rich with powerful antioxidants known as flavonols, minerals such as magnesium, iron, and zinc, as well as endorphin-boosting compounds like PEA and anandamide – both of which have an uplifting effect on the mood. It's a match made in superfood heaven!*
7. Is CBD Legal?
Yes! Because our pure CBD comes from 100% industrial hemp, not marijuana, it is legal to buy and consume even in states where marijuana has not been legalized. Our CBD comes from hemp that is grown and processed under the strict guidelines of Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill and the Colorado Department of Agricultural Industrial Hemp Pilot Program. Our CBD is classified as hemp oil to be used for nutritional purposes.*
8. Will CBD get me high?
It is virtually impossible to get high from pure hemp CBD extracted from 100% industrial hemp due to the inherent lack of THC - the compound responsible for marijuana's psychoactive effects.*
9. Are there any risks?
CBD has a remarkable safety profile; that being said, we can not rule out any and all risk. We encourage you to consult with your doctor or other qualified healthcare professional before undergoing any new supplement or nutritional regime.*
10. Can I take it if I’m on any medication?
We encourage you to do research and talk to your doctor in regards to consuming CBD while on specific medications.*
11. What is the carrier oil in your Hemp Extracts?
We use an organic coconut MCT oil as the carrier in our nano CBD extracts. MCT oil is a superfood in its own right with a high concentration of nourishing medium-chain triglycerides which benefit the metabolism and the brain.
12. Are there any hidden ingredients?
Nope! We disclose each and every ingredient in our products and don't hide any chemicals under the term "natural flavors". We use botanical terpenes and monk fruit to help flavor balance our CBD extracts.*
13. Can I ingest CBD while pregnant or nursing?
The use of Hemp CBD is not in and of itself contraindicated by pregnancy, however, each situation is different, and you should always consult with your doctor or qualified health care professional before ingesting hemp CBD, or any other nutritional supplement, while pregnant or nursing.*
14. Are there any allergies related to CBD?
Our CBD comes from 100% organically grown hemp and is free from traces of many common allergens like gluten, soy, and dairy. While allergic reactions to hemp and/or CBD are extremely uncommon, an allergy to any substance is always possible. We recommend testing out a small amount first before consuming a full dose. A true allergy would manifest pretty quickly. If you've had an allergic reaction to hemp products in the past, such as hemp seeds, hemp oil, or hemp protein, it would be advisable to avoid hemp CBD as well.*
15. Will CBD show up in a drug test?
The low amounts of THC in industrial hemp make it a more favorable choice for those wanting the medicinal benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effects of medical marijuana. That being said, even CBD derived from agricultural hemp may contain trace amounts of THC (under .3%), as well as other cannabinoids within the hemp plant itself. Therefore, if your livelihood or career is on the line, it may be advisable to avoid substances derived from cannabis altogether. If you have concerns we advise you to speak with your doctor or other qualified healthcare professional.*
16. Can anyone buy CBD?
Our product is made from hemp and does not require a medical license to acquire. We ship to all 50 states.*
