What is CBD?

CBD is a shortened way of saying the word ‘cannabidiol’.

Cannabidiol” is a cannabinoid, which is one of the many active ingredients naturally found in the industrial hemp plant.

Cannabinoids are any one of the active ingredients found in any of the plants within the cannabis family of plants.

Our bodies like all mammals produce some cannabinoids of their own called endocannabinoids.

Whilst endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced by the body, phytocannabinoids is the term we use to speak about the cannabinoids derived from plants.

An endocannabinoid system is a series of receptors located in the brain, central nervous system, and other areas around the body that use the body’s own natural cannabinoids to promote a healthy state of ‘well being’ in us.

Phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids derived from plants) are very similar to endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by the body) and it has been discovered that some phytocannabinoids like CBD also interacts with our body’s receptors to promote health in our bodies. With this discovery, it has been said that phytocannabinoids are an all-natural way to support the human body's own endocannabinoid system.

Why would I want CBD Oil?

Cannabinoids (the chemical compound found in hemp) interacts with our body in a very natural way because our bodies produces its own version of cannabinoids called endocannabinoids.

CBD has been the subject of extensive scientific research and has a potential benefit for a wide range of health conditions. Amongst the list, it has the potential to promote anti-anxiety and the ability to promote sleep.

CBD oil is a natural anxiolytic, meaning it may be able to reduce anxiety.  There is evidence that CBD oil may be able to reduce anxiety by directly affecting certain areas in the brain. Scientists have found that CBD oil could potentially lower the activity in the two parts of the brain involved in anxiety (the amygdala and prefrontal cortex). The same research has also shown that CBD oil may have a positive impact on reducing stress.

In the same way, CBD oil could potentially promote sleep. While there are many causes for insomnia, some of the biggest are stress and anxiety, as a calming agent, CBD oil has the potential to calm the tension that keeps us from sleeping.

Scientists have suggested that CBD Oil may have many other health benefits on fibromyalgia, chronic pain, arthritis, migraines and much more.

Common Misconceptions & Other Facts about Hemp

What is the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana?

The significant difference between marijuana and hemp are the levels of THC found in each.

Does Hemp Extract or CBD get you high? Absolutely not!

There are different types of cannabis plants and hybrids.

Hemp is the plant used for several industrial purposes from food products, body care products to fabrics and insulation.

Marijuana is the plant used for recreational smoking that gives the mind-altering high feeling that people get after smoking.

Both hemp and marijuana plants are from a plant family called Cannabaceae.

There are over 100 different known cannabinoids in cannabis plants. Sadly the most famous cannabinoid is THC which is the cannabinoid compound behind the high mind-altering feeling that people get after ingesting marijuana.

Marijuana has high very levels of THC and Hemp has very low levels of THC.

In order to be legally considered hemp, the hemp plant must contain less than 0.3% THC.

The levels of CBD and THC in hemp oil can vary, depending on the design of the product and the type of plant from which the oil is extracted.

CBD oil is a concentration of the cannabidiol compound typically derived from hemp.

Hemp extract is an oil derived from the industrial hemp plant. This oil can be used for a variety of purposes, the most popular being consumed as a wellness supplement because of its cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids and cannabidiol (CBD).

Genesis Pure Botanicals have sourced CBD oils that have little to no THC in them. So you won't get you high or experience any side effects like those associated with using marijuana. Instead, CBD oils have been described as calming resulting in anti-anxiety.

Does CBD Have Negative Side Effects?

Although larger clinical research is needed, if you take a large amount of CBD you may feel fatigue.

If you’re sensitive to oils, taking a large amount of any hemp oil product could upset your stomach.

Can I take CBD if I am pregnant?

We advise that you do not to take CBD if you are pregnant. 

All your medical decisions should always be made with the advice of a qualified medical practitioner.

Will I fail a drug test?

Most drug tests in the workplace search for the psychoactive compound THC, not Cannabidiol (CBD) or other compounds found naturally in hemp. However, lab results show that hemp oil can contain trace amounts of THC. Although only a very small amount is present, it could cause a positive result when screening urine and blood specimens. If you are subject to any form of drug testing or screening, we recommend that you do not ingest our products. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner and drug screening/testing company or employer before consuming these products.

Which Product is Right for Me?

CBD Concentrated Hemp Oil products are as their name suggests concentrated by volume. If you’re looking for the best value, highest potency product, this is where you’ll find it. Typically, the only reason people would choose another CBD product over this one is either because they do not need such a high strength product, or because they find them bad tasting. But for those with serious wellness goals, this is definitely the first choice.

How to Use

Pure CBD Concentrate is a paste-like oil that’s extracted right from the hemp plant; no other ingredients are added.

When you order a pure hemp oil concentrate, it will be packaged in an oral syringe. That may come as a surprise. Don’t worry, it is not for injection! 

The way to use this oral syringe of pure concentrated oil is to simply dispense the desired amount on the back of a spoon, or on your finger, or directly under your tongue, before ingesting it. A typical serving size is about the size of a grain of rice.

Now, place the oil under your tongue. Wait 60-90 seconds (the longer, the better) and then swallow.

Tips
– It is not water-soluble, so don't try to mix it in water or juice. If you’re trying to cover the taste, keep in mind you only really taste it when you swallow the oil, so you can take a drink at that moment. 
– Be careful when placing the oil under your tongue. It’s easy to miss and get oil on your teeth or lips, which can be a little frustrating to remove. The easiest way we’ve found to dispense this oil is to place the serving onto your finger or the back of a spoon, then wipe it under your tongue.

Hemp Oil Liquid Drops are made with the pure hemp extract plus other ingredients that make it a liquid and taste better.

How to Use
Take a 1/2 dropper full once or twice daily. Place the oil under your tongue, wait 60-90 seconds and then swallow.

Liquid Drops are very common and loved because they’re easy to use, taste good, and don’t leave any mess. They’re great for everyone, from small to big wellness goals.

How To Take CBD Hemp Oil?

There is no “one way” to take hemp CBD oil, but there are some mainstream methods that we recommend. 

How to Use Pure Hemp Oil Concentrates:

Pure CBD Concentrate is a paste-like oil that’s extracted right from the hemp plant; no other ingredients are added.

When you order a pure hemp oil concentrate, it will be packaged in an oral syringe. That may come as a surprise. Don’t worry, it is not for injection! 

The way to use this oral syringe of pure concentrated oil is to simply dispense the desired amount on the back of a spoon, or on your finger, or directly under your tongue, before ingesting it. A typical serving size is about the size of a grain of rice.

Now, place the oil under your tongue. Wait 60-90 seconds (the longer, the better) and then swallow.

FYI: Hemp oil concentrates are natural oils, so each harvest will vary in flavour and consistency. Some batches will be a little thicker or runnier.

How to Use Hemp Oil Liquid Drops:

Hemp oil tinctures (or “drops”) are liquid supplements. They are packaged either with a dropper or as a spray for easy dispensing.

Tinctures are very popular and for a good reason. They offer a unique opportunity for manufacturers to add other ingredients, such as flavours, other natural herbs and essential oils. These additions help mask the pungent taste of natural hemp.

To take a hemp oil tincture, fill the pipette by using the dropper top. Then, simply dispense the desired amount under your tongue. This is called “sublingual” use. Now, wait 60-90 seconds and then swallow the oil. If you find the flavour is too potent, try drinking juice along with it.

Hemp oil tinctures come in a wide array of sizes, flavours, and strengths.

What does hemp taste like?

We’ve heard hemp described as good and bad tasting. It depends on your personal preferences, just like any other food. If you don’t like earthy flavours, we suggest using a flavoured product.

What is the difference between CBD and CBDa

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is a chemical compound found in the resin of the raw cannabis plant. CBDa is the acid precursor of CBD, meaning once the cannabis plant is heated, CBDa breaks down from its acid form into CBD.

Research suggests that when combined CBD + CBDa are highly effective on epilepsy and anxiety treatments. It also has an affect in controlling feelings of nausea and vomiting.

Serving Sizes

How Do I Find the Right CBD Serving Size?

Generally, we suggest following the recommended CBD serving size on the product that you have purchased for a full week. Make sure you’re taking it every day. After that first week you could adjust your serving size to your satisfaction. If you want greater effect increase your dosage or if you want less effect then decrease your dosage.

If it’s your very first time using CBD, it may take your body a week to respond to it. Or maybe you just need to take more. Try doubling your CBD serving size for the next week. You can continue this pattern until satisfied.

The best time of day to take CBD is based on your personal preferences (in the morning, before bed, or half-and-half) or when you feel CBD is needed. 

Always consult your medical doctor before taking any new products. We are not doctors, we can’t diagnose, treat or prescribe for any condition.

Servings Per Product

If you are using the pure hemp extract like any of our Proprietary Hemp Extract tubes. You can get 30-39 servings per gram. So in the 3g (3 gram) size tube there are about 90 servings.

For the Hemp Oil Liquid Drops take a 1/2 dropper full once or twice daily. Place the oil under your tongue, wait 60-90 seconds and then swallow.
