FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are there benefits to CBD?
Your body has a natural system of cannabinoid receptors (endocannabinoid system) that exist in your immune system, central nervous system, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other key areas. These receptors help you regulate pain sensations, sleep, mood, appetite, and memory. For many people, these receptors can become "out of balance", resulting in pain and mood disorders, among other things. It is believed that CBD positively interacts with cannabinoid receptors. With over 15,000 medical studies and publications to date, interest in the relationship between cannabinoids and the human body is nothing new, but over the past decade, an increase in public demand has subsequently triggered a surge in Cannabidiol (CBD) research. With such promising results, it's obvious why CBD research has continued its steady increase over recent years. With both time and continued research, we believe CBD will soon become a staple across many different medical arenas.
What are CBD oil side effects?
CBD is generally well-tolerated and safe for human consumption. According to WebMD, “CBD doses of up to 300 mg daily have been used safely for up to 6 months. Higher doses of 1200-1500 mg daily have been used safely for up to 4 weeks.” There have been some reports of dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, and drowsiness, according to WebMD.
Will I get addicted to CBD?
No, you will not get addicted to CBD. CBD is non-psychoactive, and won’t change your state of mind or make you feel “high.” In fact, CBD has actually been found to block opioid reward centers in the brain, providing promise in the treatment of individuals suffering from substance addiction.
What is the difference between CBD and THC?
Both CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are derived from plants in the cannabis family, however their genetic makeup, as well as their functions, are quite different. CBD comes from the industrial hemp plant, while THC comes from the marijuana plant. THC contains psychoactive compounds that result in a feeling of being “high,” whereas CBD does not alter an individual’s state of mind. Both substances interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, however they react with different cannabinoid receptors and in very different ways.
Will CBD make me fail a drug test?
It is very unlikely. CBD normally contains extremely trace amounts of THC, well below an amount that would be tested for on a typical drug test. Most CBD active ingredients sold today have the THC scientifically removed during the extraction process. Wicked Relief Gum with CBD contains CBD Isolate that is 99.7% pure CBD.
Why should I use CBD gum?
Most of the oral dosage CBD products that you’ll find on the market come in the form of pills, capsules, beverages, and "gummies". These products are ingested and pass through the digestive tract where your metabolism breaks down the active ingredients, resulting in the CBD losing up to 90% of its bioavailability. Wicked Relief Gum with CBD doesn’t pass through your digestive system. Instead, it is absorbed directly by your oral mucosa (inside of the mouth), where it is dispersed throughout your body while maintaining a high degree of bioavailability.
Is CBD Gum Safe?
CBD provides no psychoactive effects and CBD naturally interacts with certain receptors throughout the body. Chewing Wicked Relief Gum with CBD delivers CBD safely and effectively as the body absorbs it more efficiently through the oral mucosa of the mouth as opposed to the digestive tract (We do not recommend our CBD products for anyone under 18 years of age.
