What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is one of the 85-plus (h) active compounds found in cannabis (marijuana) and industrial hemp. CBD accounts for up to 40% of all the compounds found in the hemp plant, and CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, which means it does not make you high.

CBD is often regarded as the single most crucial cannabinoid ever discovered. Why? Unlike many other drugs, it is 100% organic (no synthetic here). Whether it’s to maintain general wellbeing or becoming more proactive with a daily wellness routine, CBD oil is useful. And with on-going research, the list of CBD’s uses continues to grow exponentially.

  • Pain reliever
  • Decreases epileptic convulsions
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Relaxes Muscles
  • Diminishes psychotic behaviors
  • Protects against nerve damage and impairment
  • Balances and decreases inflammation aka anti-inflammatory
  • Blocks disease causing agents, like COVID-19

Where Does CBD Come From?

CBD comes from the plant species Cannabis sativa, and this natural wonder grows in abundance nearly anywhere with little water or fertilizer. It’s also a natural deterrent to pests (so no pesticides required). It even helps in the Ozone battle by repurposing carbon from the air back into the ground through its root systems. If that’s not enough to win you over, hemp seeds also have a high (nearly complete) source of protein, which basically means it contains all the required amino acids our bodies need. So, if it can grow anywhere, does it matter where we get it? ABSOLUTELY!

Even though CBD doesn’t need pesticides, some farms may still use them. If you truly want organic, safe hemp, stick to domestic sources. To ensure the best and safest product, RVDCBD ONLY farms our cannabis domestically (Homegrown USA).

Is CBD Legal?

American-flag-with-Rushmore-statues-and hemp-leaf

In 2014, Congress passed the Agricultural Act (aka the “Farm Bill”), which opened the door for closely monitored industrial hemp growth on American farms. Then in 2018 the “Revised Farm Bill” removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act.

And now (as of 2021), Hemp-derived CBD oil with 0.3% THC or less is federally legal in all 50 states; however, CBD laws are monitored state-by-state and even though CBD with 0.3% THC is legal, some states restrict certain products. So, the bottom line is, you must check your state’s CBD Laws before purchase.

How is CBD Different From Marijuana?

Both Marijuana and Hemp belong to the same species, Cannabis sativa, and the two plants look somewhat similar, but there are a few key differences. The biggest variance between hemp and marijuana is the amount of another cannabinoid compound known as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) found in each. THC is the psychoactive compound and does make you high.

a-woman-separating-dried-cannabis

The term “hemp” generally refers to cannabis that contains 0.3 percent or less THC content by dry weight. In legal terms, “marijuana” means cannabis that has more than 0.3 percent THC by dry weight. However, THC content varies among cannabis plants. In fact, some strains are bred to be higher in THC than others. BUT, once again, CBD will not make you high, THC will.

How is CBD Harvested?

Extraction methods matter because different methods retain a different assortment of the hemp plant’s compounds. For example, if the goal is to retain valuable terpenes (needed in Broad-spectrum products) a solvent method is the best option because CO2 can lose terpenes and cannabinoids at the beginning of the extraction process.

In the CBD business harvesting is commonly referred to as the extraction process. There are four common extraction methods, which all fall under the high-tech name Chromatography. Chromatography is the separation of compounds in a mixture (in this case the hemp plant with some other compound). Which process you choose depends on how you will repurpose the CBD.

  • Carbon dioxide extraction (which requires expensive equipment) is where CO2 is transformed into a liquid with high pressure. That liquid passes through the plant material and leaves behind high CBD concentrations. 
  • Steam distillation uses steam to separate the oil from the plant material and is not as efficient; however, this method is exceptional for further refinement such as separating specific compounds out of already extracted CBD oils.
  • Solvent extraction is more efficient than solvent and has a few risks, but if done right, it is the most economic and the most popular method by far.
  • Lipid extraction is where oil pressure and heat are applied over time to absorb and encapsulate compounds into a lipid or fat like coconut oil, olive oil. Click here to return to the top.

What’s the Difference Between Broad and Full-spectrum CBD?

Full spectrum CBD has the whole toolbox of naturally occurring compounds including THC. The compounds together produce the “entourage effect.” This simply refers to the many benefits the varying compounds create when present together. For example, brown sugar is a healthy natural unrefined sugar (and the darker the sugar the better). By itself it is healthy and delicious but when combined with cinnamon (an excellent source of antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties) you get the classic “American” spice and everything that is fall.

Slate-background-with-multi-colored-pills
  • Full Spectrum CBD—has no processing (100% Natural) & contains the most THC.
  • Broad Spectrum CBD—is refined to reduce THC levels (RVDCBD has ZERO THC) but still contains all the other compounds.
  • CBD Isolate—is 100% CBD, no THC—literally nothing but CBD.

Broad spectrum CBD also contains several of the CBD Tools in the toolbox and thus the “entourage effect,” but typically THC is reduced or removed. RVDCBD Broad Spectrum contains ZERO THC, 100% guaranteed. So, if you’re looking for the apple pie without the high, reach for Broad Spectrum not Full. Click here to return to the top.

Is CBD Dangerous?

CBD like any substance with medicinal properties has some risks. For this reason, if you plan to use products containing CBD, RVDCBD ALWAYS encourages consulting your doctor first. CBD generally is well-tolerated, but as with any medicinal herb or compound there are possible side effects. Side effects can include dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, irritability, drowsiness and fatigue.

Like grapefruit, CBD can increase the level of blood thinning by competing for the liver enzymes that break down these drugs. People taking high doses of CBD may also show abnormalities in liver related blood tests similar to results found with those taking non-prescription drugs like acetaminophen (Tylenol). 

Currently, the FDA does not regulate the safety and purity of CBD products, and as such, the CBD content listed and in some products is unreliable. A recent study of 84 CBD products bought online showed that more than a quarter of the products contained less CBD than labeled. In addition, THC was found in 18 products. That’s why RVDCBD posts their 3rd party tested COA’s (Certificate of Analysis). Click here to return to the top.

Can I take CBD When I’m Pregnant or Nursing?

Even though CBD does help with nausea, the FDA strongly advises absolutely no use of CBD, THC, and marijuana in any form during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Use during pregnancy may affect fetal brain development, may increase the risk of a newborn with low birth weight, and research suggests increased risks for premature birth and potentially stillbirth as well.

Is CBD Addictive?

Drug addiction is a compulsive need to use a substance with the inability to stop using it despite consequences. Substances that lead to dependence and addiction usually affect the pleasure centers of the brain. Dependence is the need for the substance to avoid symptoms of withdrawal. 

A-brain-with-lights-and-a-hemp-leaf

THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, produces the high we all know marijuana for. While both CBD and THC travel to the brain and attach to the endocannabinoid receptors, THC attaches to the areas of the brain associated with pleasure, memory, and thought.

CBD does not have the same intoxicating effects as THC. Thus, marijuana and THC use can lead to dependence, but for now current research suggests that CBD is not addictive. Click here to return to the top.

What Dosage Should I Take?

RVDCBD recommends first time users take it low and slow. In other words, start at a dose of 10 mg and slowly add 5 mg increments every 2 to 3 days until you reach the desired results. Research published in the National Library of Medicine [link] (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22129319/) tested on humans shows a good range for the average person is between 600 mg to 1,500 mg daily, even for “chronic” usage. HOWEVER, no two bodies are the same, that’s why we at RVDCBD recommend you speak to your doctor first!

How you consume your CBD may affect how much you need.

  • Tincture: requires less if consumed sublingually (under the tongue) as they enter your bloodstream immediately; however, if added to cold foods, some CBD will be lost in metabolization, and thus you might need a little more. 
  • Gummies: require a little more because some CBD is lost in digestion.
  • Smokables: require much less because it goes straight into your body from your lungs with no CBD or THC lost.
  • Topicals: are directly applied to the skin and source of pain.

How long does it take before I feel the benefits?

Will I Fail a Drug Test While Taking RVDCBD Products?

a-drug-test-urine-analysis-cup

Even though trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%)  are legal, THC can build up in the body even over a short time. We at RVDCBD don’t want anyone to fail a drug test, violate probation, or lose their job or military status! That’s why RVDCBD has several products with absolutely Zero THC; and it has just what it says, absolutely no THC.

So, there’s no THC to build up in your body and jeopardize test results. Even better, RVDCBD also understands the whole entourage is better than just CBD, so our Broad Spectrum products are also ZERO THC.

Rob Van Dam’s Role in RVDCBD

RVD’s name and his face are on the product, but that’s not his only involvement. He makes it his mission to bring you the highest quality, and most effective products. As many of you know, Rob never does anything the typical way. During the production of all RVDCBD products, Rob Van Dam personally tests them (and when I say tests, he literally puts the test product on his body, smokes it, or ingests it).

Rob-Van-Dam-sitting-in-front-of-a-tan-stone-fence

Who better to guarantee the quality, strength, and effectiveness than Mr. 420 himself (a 30-year avid, marijuana & hemp advocate). Being a 30-year veteran of CBD, he has basically said, If it doesn’t work for me, or it doesn’t meet my standards, we’re not selling it. His fans had his back for 30 years, and now he has yours. Click here to return to the top.

Can I Fly or Travel with CBD in My Possession?

CBD is legal in the United States as of 2018, so yes; you can fly or travel domestically (within the USA) anywhere with all CBD products containing less than .3 % THC. Keep in mind, however, CBD Flower, though it has less tha .3% THC looks the same as other THC products. Law enforcement officials and TSA personnel may not be able to tell the difference. Also, TSA liquid quantity restrictions still apply when flying. All liquids must be less than 3 ounces to board a plane. 

A-map-camera-pencil-travel-bag-and-RVDCBD-products

While some nations do not harbor CBD restrictions, RVDCBD strongly advises not to travel internationally with CBD products, as every nation differs in cannabis laws, and while traveling, even passing through an airport, in any given country, you are under their jurisdiction, and thus required to abide by their laws.
