Our CBD product Q and A:

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most prevalent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Its medical use dates back to prehistoric societies, but has long been suppressed and controlled while scientists and users focused on the mind-altering component, THC.

CBD has been known to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, inflammation and pain as well as other chronic conditions like psoriasis, acne and eczema.

CBD oil is non-intoxicating, has almost no side effects, and is impossible to lethally overdose.

What is Comfort Leaf CBD oil used for?

Comfort Leaf CBD is mostly used for anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, and anti-anxiety. This oil can also positively affect your appetite, sleep, stress response, immune system, and so much more. Parents, patients and pets are benefiting from Comfort Leaf CBD oil.

What should I look for when buying CBD oil?

Consider the following questions when buying:

  1.  Where is the hemp grown or sourced?
  2.  Is the oil full-spectrum or isolate?
  3.  What other ingredients are in the oil?
  4.  Is it third-party tested? *This is important to clarify ingredients and potency. 
Will Comfort Leaf’s products get me high?

NO. They will not get you high. CBD is non-intoxicating and our products contain zero THC, guaranteed.

Can you take too much CBD?

Even though CBD oil that only contains CBD will not get your high, once you reach your therapeutic dose, taking more will likely just make you want to take a nap.

Studies have found that in some people CBD can cause diarrhea, changes in appetite, and fatigue. Follow the dosage directions to get the best results. (Visit the CBD dosage information page by clicking here.)

CBD, even in reasonably high doses is safe. Like anything, if ingested recklessly, it could have negative side effects, however, those side effects pale in comparison to other substances, even other cannabinoids.

Here’s to the – healthy, natural – Comfort you deserve.

How much CBD should you take?

The amount of CBD you should take depends on a range of factors, including:

  • your body weight
  • the condition you’re treating
  • your individual body chemistry
  • the concentration of CBD in each pill, capsule, drop, or gummy

In other words, there are a lot of variables that go into deciding how much CBD to take. Before trying CBD, be sure to talk to your doctor about an appropriate dosage and any potential risks. If your doctor tells you how much to use, stick to their recommendation. 

If your doctor doesn’t provide a recommendation, it’s best to start with a smaller dosage and gradually increase it. This could mean starting with 20 to 40 mg a day. After a week, increase this amount by 5 mg. Continue this until you feel that it’s effectively treating your symptoms.

You can take CBD roughly every 4-6 hours or as needed as you find your sweet spot. Also if you take a “dose” and do not “feel” any relief within 30 minutes to an hour you may want to try taking a bit more on your next dose until you find your “sweet spot”. 

We provide our customers with a CBD dosage card in every order. It might be wise to keep track of how much CBD you’re taking and whether your symptoms are getting better. Write it down on paper or in a notes app on your phone.

Am I in a legal state where I can l buy CBD oil?

What kind of tests do you run on your products?

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are essential oils responsible for the distinct aromas, flavors, and colors of plants including hemp!

They are what give the Pineapple Express strain its citrus and tropical taste and Strawberry Lemonade its sweet and fruity flavor, but terpenes do more than just deliver delicious flavor. They also determine how a particular strain will affect your body and mind thus having a direct effect on your whole CBD experience!

What is MCT Oil?

MCT oil is the combination of the two fatty acids C8 and C10, or pure C8, extracted from coconut and palm oil. MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. You may also see them called MCFAs (medium-chain fatty acids). 

MCTs are known for being quickly absorbed by your body and metabolized into energy in the liver. They’re the most efficient saturated fats in terms of energy production.

They create ketones, an energy molecule. Ketones are an amazing source of energy for your body in comparison to glucose because they produce far less molecules that react with other molecules when they are metabolized.

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.

There are two main types of receptors in the ECS: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2s are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce: 2AG and anandamide. 

Why do you source your hemp from Kentucky instead of Colorado?

Kentucky’s ecology is perfect for growing hemp. The growing season is longer and the soil is richer than Colorado’s for best quality. Growing under the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program is also 100% compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill, which means harvesting and distributing is 100% legal at the federal level.

What's the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil?

The main difference between hemp and CBD oils is that hemp oil contains only minute concentrations of the healthy cannabinoids compared to CBD oil.

CBD and hemp oils are made from different parts of the plant and have different purposes. CBD is a compound found in industrial hemp, and we utilize a whole-plant CO2 extraction process that allows us to draw the CBD from the plant material and filter out unnatural substances, maximizing pure CBD concentration.

While CBD is extracted from the entire plant, minus the seeds, hemp oil is extracted only from the seeds. Hemp oil is made from pressing hemp seeds and is used in a variety of over-the-counter products.

Hemp-seed oil is used as a protein supplement for food, as varnish for wood and, because of its remedial properties for hair and skin, as an ingredient in lotion and soap products.

You can buy hemp-seed oil online or at health food stores, where you can learn about more ways to incorporate it into your diet and hygiene.

CBD oil is generally used for medicinal purposes and has shown great promise in treating inflammation, pain, sleeping disorders and even certain types of seizures.
