CBD FAQ

What is CBD? Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound extract, comes from the cannabis sativa plant. CBD has been making news as a wonderful recovery aid. It's being used to help with aches, pains, inflammations, and muscle spasms.

Why does CBD work? We explain it in detail here, but we will give you a quick summary. We know that CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). Ingestion of CBD results in the stimulation of the ECS, which in result promotes homeostasis, reduces pain sensation and decreases inflammation.

What does CBD make you feel like? This varies with each individual. CBD is not psychoactive like THC, so you won’t get the high feeling that smoking marijuana gives you. If used properly, CBD can make some feel sleepy, relaxed, at ease, happy, or energetic. CBD effects everyone in a different way. 

Will this get me high? No, Kill Cliff CBD is compliant with federal regulations 0% THC, so you will not get any sort of high feeling from our drink. 

Does this drink have THC? Our drink has 0% THC. CBD derived from full spectrum hemp may have trace amounts of THC, since the extract is from the entire plant. We test our CBD through a third party to make sure we are in compliance with federal regulations.

How much CBD is in each can? There is 25mg of CBD from full-spectrum hemp in each can of Kill Cliff CBD.

Will I fail a drug test? Each drug test is different. Some may test for cannabinoids, which includes CBD, while others may just be testing for THC. A THC-focused drug test will be no problem. 

Do I need a prescription? Negative! You will not need a prescription or medical card in order to make a purchase. 

Is CBD addictive? Nope! The dopamine rush associated with addiction is not triggered when you take CBD. Addiction comes from your brain’s neural pathways becoming addicted to the rush of dopamine. CBD does not produce a large amount of dopamine, therefore it is not addictive and you can use it without the worry of becoming addicted. 

Is CBD legal in my state? The answer to this question all boils down to the state you live in. The New York Times reported that the federal 2018 Farm Bill lifted a nationwide ban on producing hemp, from which CBD oil is made, and which formerly was classified as a controlled substance. But the bill left states to follow their own laws, many of which still classifies hemp as illegal. 

Certain states also forbid the usage of CBD oil in food and alcohol while other states allow it. 

Federal law states CBD oils are legal to possess as long as they contain no more than .3 percent of THC, but some states have still arrested those in possession of CBD products regardless of the THC level.

What is the body's Endocannabinoid System? The ECS is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found throughout your body. The receptors that make up the ECS are found in your central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, and immune system. 

Is it safe to take CBD while pregnant? As of now, there is not enough evidence to determine whether CBD usage is safe while pregnant. We are not aware of any serious effects that can be found as a result of taking CBD while pregnant, but we recommend talking to a prenatal care physician before experimenting.
