Dr. John’s Remedies Frequently Asked Questions
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a constituent derived from commercial hemp or cannabis. CBD oil, also referred to as “hemp oil,” has been widely research for its potentially powerful health benefits.
Dr. John’s CBD oil (hemp oil) contains less than 0.3% THC by weight which means that it is considered industrial hemp under federal law. It is legal to purchase and ship in and to all 50 states.
Dr. John’s products will not get you high. They are made from hemp plants which contain a high level of CBD and a very low level of THC. Dr. John’s products only contain trace amounts of THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, so you should not feel the “high” that is commonly associated with marijuana.
Clinical research has shown CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of medical conditions, including chronic pain, addiction, depression, neurological disorders, inflammation and more. Its anti-cancer properties are also currently being researched in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Studies to date have suggested that CBD is safe even at high doses. It has not been linked to any major side effects or adverse health conditions.
We recommend either the sublingual method (under the tongue) or taken orally in capsule form. When placed under the tongue, the CBD oil quickly travels into the bloodstream through tiny capillaries, and avoids the digestive system. When taken in capsule form, the CBD oil it enters into the digestive system and metabolizes in the liver, where it is then absorbed into the bloodstream.
For the capsules, we recommend taking one capsule twice per day or as needed. For the extract, we recommend taking one full dropper under the tongue twice per day or as needed.
Our CBD oil is sourced from a certified organic hemp farm in Colorado that produces genetically superior strains of hemp that contain high quantities of CBD. No chemicals or pesticides are used in any part of the cultivation process. Once the oil is extracted, every batch and lot is tested both in house and by a third party to ensure quality and purity.
Most workplace drug screens and tests only target delta9-tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) and do not test for the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal, natural hemp-based constituents. However, some studies have shown that eating hemp-based foods, drinks and oils can, in rare cases, cause false-positive screening results when screening urine and blood specimens for THC. These false-positive results for THC are subsequently shown indeed to be incorrect – i.e. falsely positive when actually negative for THC – when specific confirmatory tests are performed. As when taking any new medication or dietary supplement, we recommend you first consult with your healthcare provider.
