All Of Your CBD Questions Answered:
What is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is one of over 100 currently identified Cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Next to THC, CBD is the second most predominant Cannabinoid in Cannabis plants. The CBD products that you will find at New Age Herbal are derived from industrial hemp and contain absolutely zero THC. All of our CBD suppliers utilize third party lab testing to ensure that every product has the correct amount of CBD, is completely free of any THC, and contains no contaminants such as heavy metals or bacteria.
Will CBD make you high?
CBD does not produce a high effect like THC does. In fact it is entirely non-intoxicating and holds no connection to compulsive use or cravings. Since all the CBD products we sell are third party lab tested, we can assure our customers that there is zero THC present in the CBD they purchase from us.
Is CBD legal?
CBD derived from Hemp has been legal on a federal level since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. Hemp has been removed entirely from the Controlled Substances Act and federally defined as any Cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC. All of the CBD products that we carry at New Age Herbal are hemp derived and 100% THC free. The FDA is now working diligently to define regulations for the CBD industry and we will continue to stay ahead of the curve by taking all necessary actions to ensure that our CBD products are Pure, Safe, and of the Highest Quality.
Is CBD Legal In Idaho?
Idaho takes a zero tolerance stance when it comes to THC. Due to Idaho’s no trace element law, hemp derived products, including CBD, are only considered legal if they contain absolutely no THC whatsoever. So despite the Federal Legal limit being set at 0.3% THC, hemp products that are made available in Idaho are considered illegal if they contain any amount of THC. This is why we are very careful in selecting our CBD suppliers and why we will only carry hemp derived CBD products with third party lab testing to prove that there is no THC present.
Can I take CBD with Prescription Medications?
If you are currently taking any prescription medication, it is a good idea to consult with your healthcare provider before taking any new herb, vitamin, or supplement. What is currently known about CBD is that it can interact with certain medications in a similar fashion to grapefruit. If a medication has a grapefruit warning, be aware that CBD may have an amplified interaction with that medication as well. Both CBD and grapefruit use the cytochrome P450 pathway for metabolization, which is the same pathway that some prescriptions utilize. The metabolization of CBD will take precedence over these medications when taken together. This in turn can slow down and weaken the effects of the medication. CBD has also been known to cause a negative interaction with certain blood thinners like Warfarin or Plavix. We highly encourage you to speak with your prescribing physician if you wish to take CBD but are concerned about drug interactions. Your doctor is the only one who can properly advise you and/or make any necessary adjustments to your medication regimen to ensure that you can safely take CBD.
Will CBD make me fail a drug test?
THC is the compound that is commonly screened for in drug testing. CBD does not react to or show up on Drug Tests. New Age Herbal only sells pure CBD products with Zero THC that will not trigger a positive result for Marijuana on a drug screening.
