FAQ's Frequently Asked Questions
Do you use Vitamin E Acetate?
We do not use Vitamin E Acetate and never have.
What is Full Spectrum CBD?
When shopping for CBD products you will notice there are different cannabinoid spectrum options to choose from.
While there are generally three types, they are actually worlds apart from each other.
When CBD is referred to as "Full Spectrum", it means that the CBD contains all cannabinoids including CBN (Cannabidiol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), Cannabinoids, Terpenes, Flavonoids and more. These are the required compounds needed for actual results.
And yes, along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (TetrahydroCannabidiol). In accordance with the Agricultural Farm Bill, DNA CBD products are within the legal 0.3% limit of THC.
CBD Isolate, on the other hand, is simply purified CBD that has been extracted and isolated away from the other cannabinoids. Correct, it has been isolated away from the compounds needed for actual results.
Whats the point of just CBD Isolate then? Well, it's doesn't cost as much as full spectrum products I guess?
Did you find a product or a store that says CBD Isolate is just as effective? That's OK, they are simply referring to old data.
If they are legitimately standing firm, its more than likely based on a previous belief that was proven to be invalid in 2015.
During the infancy stages of this industry, there was "theory" that CBD in its isolated form was more potent and concentrated than full spectrum CBD; however, in 2015, that theory was debunked.
What is the best way to produce CBD-rich cannabis oil?
The cannabis oil that is typically available at medical marijuana dispensaries often has high levels of THC (the stuff that gets you "high") with little Cannabidiol.
Ours is the opposite of this. Meaning, we have higher levels of Cannabidiol (CBD) and lower amounts of THC.
Will I potentially fail a drug test if I take DNA CBD-rich cannabidiol CBD.
Yes it is possible, even though our THC levels are far below the legal limit (0.03%) you may fail a drug test.
Drug tests have come a long way and are geared heavily toward identifying THC at any level. At the time of writing, drug test facilities have not figured out how separate CBD results from THC results.
Since our CBD-rich CBD's have a small amount (below the legal limit) of THC, this small amount of THC may register on sensitive drug tests.
How is CBD metabolized when consumed orally?
CBD is metabolized into an analogous compound, 7-hydroxy-CBD, by the liver. Some 6-OH-CBD may also be formed. There is currently very little known about the activity of these compounds. There is strong evidence that CBD does not convert to significant amounts THC in the stomach.
As a grower, can you increase the amount of CBD content by manipulating environmental factors?
Negative. The purity of a plant is determined by its genetic makeup (its "DNA"). Therefore, contrary to false information, an inferior plant cannot be made a quality plant just by changing the temperature, lighting, and other environmental simulation processes.
We can, however, influence the overall well being of a healthy plant by manipulating its environmental factors (temperature, lighting, water, nutrients, etc).
Does CBD interact with other medications?
Yes, it is possible. CBD inhibits the same enzyme that is involved in metabolizing many drugs. By inhibiting the same enzyme (cytochrome P450), Our products can either increase or decrease the effects of other drugs.
As always check with your physician prior to starting the use of any of our products. Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
If DNA CBD's are non-psychoactive (does NOT get you high), does that mean it is legal?
Our products THC levels are below the legal limit set forth by the Agricultural Farm Bill of 2018. It basically states that a product should be derived from hemp, not marijuana, and contains less than 0.3% THC.
No medical marijuana card is required to buy or use DNA hemp-derived CBD products.
Will DNA CBD's affect my appetite?
Unlike THC ("pot", "weed", etc) our CBD's have negligible effects on appetite and full stomach feelings, etc.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are simply essential oils found in plants. They are responsible for smell and taste.
Our products taste of the natural flavor of the plant. However, being twice distilled, there is very little taste left remaining.
Can I give my pet CBD (my dog, cat, etc.)?
Yes. Pets benefit from CBD for the same reasons as humans.
However, a dosage for dogs or cats will more than likely be much smaller than yours.
However, We recommend you speak with your Veterinarian before you start giving your pet CBD.
Your instructions say to put the proper amount under my tongue (sublingual use only), but how long do I keep it under my tongue?
30 to 60 seconds is a fair amount, followed by simply swallowing.
Please note, it is important to speak with your doctor regarding CBD use, especially if you are taking other medications, supplements, and/or other medicines.
What Is CBD?
It’s short for cannabidiol, and it’s a natural compound found in both marijuana and hemp plants.
