What is CBD?
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant.
How does CBD work?
CBD, and all other cannabinoids, attach themselves to certain receptors in the body to produce their effects. The body has two cannabinoid receptors called CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors, CBD has its greatest effect on the CB2. The reason that is important is because CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. CB1 receptors are mostly in the brain.
How to recognize "good" CBD products?
Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell the good CBD products from others on the market. Native Remedy CBD products are lab tested for quality and potency, as we prefer to be as transparent as possible with our customers. Always do your research.
Why are lab tests important?
Through lab testing, companies and consumers can find out exactly what's inside the product they are about to consume. Top rated brands provide lab verifications for their products, but a lot of smaller companies do not. Potency lab testing is very costly, but also very necessary. These lab reports, often referred to as certificates of analysis (COA), are the key to knowing what is or is not in your product. CBD is operated in an unregulated space, meaning there is currently no quality or content control on CBD products sold in the general consumer market. Lab reports empower consumers by providing the opportunity to discover exactly what is in each and every product they purchase.
How do I understand the label?
Many consumers don't understand how to read a CBD mg label and therefore are getting less for their money and their pain management. Bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to your CBD products. A 6oz bottle of 250mg lotion is providing you with roughly 42 mg of CBD per ounce, whereas a 4oz bottle of 250mg lotion will provide you with 62mg of CBD per ounce. Remember, you are paying for the CBD, not the base. So expect to pay more for a 3oz 500mg than a 6oz 250mg.
Will Native Remedy CBD products cause me to fail a drug test?
Our CBD distillate products have nearly untraceable amounts of THC, in fact, depending on the lab that is testing the amounts may not even be detected. Our products are tested twice, once as a raw extract and again after being combined with our products. When tested, our products are well below the Level of Quantitation. So simply put, no, Native Remedy CBD products will not cause a failed drug test.
Can I take/use Native Remedy CBD products with prescription medication?
If you are taking prescription medication, always consult your doctor prior to beginning CBD or any other health or dietary supplement.
How much CBD oil should I take in a day?
This is a great question, however, not simply answered. There are a lot of determining factors when finding the perfect dosage including: height, weight, symptoms, sensitivity to supplements/meds. Our droppers are designed to help you find what works best for you. We highly recommend starting with a 1/4ml and waiting for about 30 minutes. If, at that point, you decide you need more relief simply take another 1/4ml and repeat the process until you find what works for you. There may be days you use more or less, which is normal. We don't recommend taking more than 3ml in one day for a prolonged period of time.
Will I get high using Native Remedy CBD products?
No. You cannot get high from CBD oil.
What can CBD be used for?
While we can't make medical claims to what CBD can or cannot treat, it has shown to have a positive impact on people's and pet's lives. CBD has a wide range of uses, and we encourage everyone to research the widely available information online. Research has shown potential of CBD products to help with anxiety, aches, pains, inflammation, acne, menstrual cramping and other everyday ailments.
Are Native Remedy CBD products third-party lab tested for quality?
Yes! Our organically grown, raw CBD is first tested for quality and safety and then our finished products are tested a second time at Desert Valley Testing in Phoenix, Arizona for quality, safety and potency. All of our products will have lab results available online. Look at the label on your bottle and locate the batch code. All of our third party testing results can be found here .
What is the difference between CBD Tinctures and CBD Oil?
CBD oil is the most common form of taking pure CBD for medical purposes. Essentially, CBD oil is pure CBD extracted from the cannabis plants suspended in an oil solution, such as MCT (coconut oil.) CBD tinctures are a bit different than the oil. While it is still a concentrated form of CBD, with tinctures, the CBD is actually suspended in a small amount of distilled alcohol, such as vegetable glycerin. Native Remedy currently only makes CBD Oil because we believe this to be the most beneficial product.
How accurate is the labeling for Native Remedy products?
Our products follow the guidelines of US Pharmacopoeia (USP Standards), which allows a 10 percent margin of error in CBD content labeling. Many studies are showing that about 70% of CBD products are mislabeled and only 30% of the labels contain factual information (that is, the CBD content fell within the 10% margin of error allowed by the US Pharmacopoeia). Fluctuations in the content of CBD, a substance of a very good safety profile, may not be dangerous, however, the lack of factual content information is misleading to consumers. Over labeling (containing much less CBD content than declared on the packaging) prevents the consumer from the benefits intended while also overcharging, and under labeling denies the consumer pertinent information for their pain relief needs and will deny them the information needed for purchasing from a reputable supplier elsewhere.
What is a USP Standard?
The standards set by US Pharmacopoeia are set to asses the quality, strength, identity and purity of chemical medicines, dietary supplements and many other items.
Can CBD Tinctures and Oils be vaped?
Never vape a CBD tincture. As described above, a CBD tincture has an alcohol base, such as vegetable glycerin, and this is dangerous to vape. There are many warnings now about vaping, especially vaping products that are not intended to vape. Native Remedy does not recommend vaping any of our products.
How much does Native Remedy charge for shipping?
Native Remedy charges a flat rate of $10. There is free shipping for purchases over $100.
How long will it take to receive my purchased items?
