Frequently asked questions

Is hemp legal?

The answer is YES. The 2018 Farm Bill created further clarification regarding hemp and hemp products. In addition to the 2018 bill, the legality of Cannabidiol from hemp is also supported by a 2004 unanimous ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which determined that the DEA “cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana, i.e., non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled.

What is the difference between CBD derived from hemp versus marijuana?

Our CBD products are all derived from hemp. They are either at low THC level (<0.03%). This allows for a higher CBD intake with none of the psychoactive effects of THC. Marijuana has way more THC (>5%) than hemp.

How do I choose a product that is right for me?

The ideal method for taking CBD depends on the reason for which it’s being taken as well as other factors such as age and weight. If using CBD oil as a supplement for health maintenance, tinctures or capsules are recommended. If treating a particular medical condition, please consult with a qualified medical professional for advice on the ideal method of administration for your condition.

What is the ideal dosing size?

In general, the ideal dose varies for each person depending on a wide range of variables including age, sex, weight, activity level, diet, desired outcome and the reason it’s being used. We commonly hear of people using a wide range of dosages with great effect ranging from as low as 5-10mg up to 50-100mg/day. As with any supplement, do your research, start slow, and consult your medical professional for more advice.

What are the dosage recommendations for CBD products?

We can’t make any dosing recommendations and recommend you do further research. CBD and hemp oil affect everyone differently, so do your research to see what you think would work best for you. A couple of good links for research are: https://www.projectcbd.org

Are your products all lab tested?

Yes, all of our products are all tested by third party labs. You can scan the QR code on the packaging to access the Certificate of Analysis (COA). Or you can access our lab test results (CoAs) here.

Will I fail a drug test?

Depends on the standards of the lab administering your drug test. Most companies only search for the THC cannabinoid. While our full spectrum CBD products contains less than 0.3% THC, there are some testing facilities that check for a spectrum of cannabinoids and could trigger a positive drug test. By law, you are allowed to ask the facility what cannabinoids they test for. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can call and ask anonymously. We suggest contacting the testing facility if there is any concern.

What should I look for in terms of CBD quality?

You should always look for high-quality CBD. When possible it should be organic, and made in the USA. It should be pesticide free and come from a source that uses good manufacturing practices. Anise CBD CBD oil is made with organically sun-grown USA hemp. We partner with a small artisanal family farm in Colorado who practices organic growing method on their hemp cultivation. Our products are free of pesticide, herbicide, heavy metals and solvents.

How long does CBD oil take to take effect?

There are several important factors that come into play when determining the time to take effect when it comes to various methods of using CBD oil. Some of these variables are related to CBD itself, and others are related to how the human body reacts to CBD.

Because of unique genetics, no two people react to CBD oil in the same way. Furthermore, factors such as age, health, weight, circulation and metabolism can all affect the timing of the effects of CBD oil.

A factor that can be influenced by all of the above is the number of cannabinoid receptors in the body, how they are expressed and the ability of the body to produce endocannabinoids. An individual who expresses more receptors or produces fewer endocannabinoids may be more sensitive to CBD than someone with an abundance of endocannabinoids or a lack of receptors.

There are also numerous other factors involved such as the type of product being used, how it’s being used and how much is being used. The onset of edibles will typically take longer than that of tinctures, for example.

As we mentioned, the effects of inhaled CBD are virtually instantaneous.  Edibles and capsules can range anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour while tinctures can take up to 20 minutes.

These figures are to be considered general guidelines and will vary from person to person, as we mentioned above.
