Frequently Asked Questions

It's good to ask questions

What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a chemical compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. It is NOT mind altering like cannabis, which means CBD will NOT cause you to get high. Over the past 40 years there have been numerous studies that highlight the potential of CBD. Researchers discovered the human Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is the system that CBD interacts with.

 

ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM: What is it?

Discovered in the 20th Century, the endocannabinoid system is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids that are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the mammalian brain and body. CBD is one of the primary cannabinoids found in hemp.

 

These cannabinoid receptors play a pivotal role in physiological processes such as mood, memory and pain. There are two cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2 that are located on cells throughout the body.

 

What are CB1 and CB2 receptors?

CB1 receptors are primarily located on nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord and central nervous system. They are very abundant in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, and hippocampus. The CB1 receptors have been found to play a role in memory processing, motor regulation, pain sensation, mood, and sleep. CB2 receptors are primarily found on cells in the immune system and its associated structures. When activated, they stimulate a response that fights inflammation, which can reduce pain and minimize damage to tissues.

 

What is hemp oil?

Products containing hemp oil on REALCBDforME use an extract of the hemp plant in its most natural form possible, containing terpenes and phytocannabinoids like CBC, CBG & CBV. The star of the show on this stage however, is cannabidiol (CBD) offered in a variety of strengths. The hemp oil in the products we choose to support is a whole plant extraction that contains all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the source material that work synergistically to enhance CBD’s therapeutic benefits.  This is known as the entourage effect, where CBD and other compounds contained in hemp work together to provide a greater therapeutic response, than individually.

 

What does CBD do?

The FDA has restrictions in place which limit the ability to speak freely on the virtues of dietary supplements like CBD and hemp oil. The rules are meant to protect consumers from companies making unreasonable claims. We encourage you to consult your physician, speak to a healer, and do your own research. The research is out there, take the time to educate yourself on how this wonderful natural compound affects our bodies and minds.

 

Why use CBD products we source?

From field to packaging, each of the products we choose to partner with are crafted with exceedingly high standards for quality.

 

  1. Non-GMO plant genetics: It starts with selecting exceptional non-GMO plant genetics, specifically grown for hemp extract in the USA.

 

  1. Extraction: Many products on the market sold as ‘hemp oil’ are often extracted from just the stalks, or seeds of the hemp plant, these often contain only trace amounts of CBD, limiting the plants overall effectiveness and therapeutic benefits.

 

  1. Potency: The majority of CBD products on the market today use only CBD isolates and synthetic ingredients! An isolate is a lab isolated CBD compound, stripped of all the other phytocannabinoids and terpenes that complement cannabidiol so immensely. Without these other cannabinoids, there is no “entourage effect,”

REALCBDforME only partners with brands who make full-spectrum oil products containing active cannabinoids and terpenes in addition to CBD. The terpene entourage of Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Pinene and Limonene provides an incredible wellness boost.

 

Will I get “HIGH” from any of these products?

NO, the products available on REALCBDforME have less than 0.3% THC, many verified at 0% or undetectable levels of THC.

 

Do I need a prescription to order?

You do not need a medical card or a prescription to order!

 

What concentration is right for me?

REALCBDforME understands that properly supporting our own internal endocannabinoid system has been lost for generations. Over time and evolution, people have developed deficiencies that need to be addressed and maintained, which all of the “entourage enhanced” CBD oils, edibles, and skin care products work to accomplish.

 

REALCBDforME provides flavored edible options in individual 10mg doses and the infused oil category offers a variety of strengths to dose with. The industry standard with any supplement is to start “low and slow,” make a point to understand how your body responds. These products will naturally become part of your wellness routine, there is no need to rush!

 

How many servings should I take?

We don’t provide directions, only recommendations.  Please consult with your physician on amounts that are suitable for you. Why? Each person is different and should listen to their body as they use the products and adjust the dosage accordingly. Of course, dosing, concentration and frequency will alter how long the product lasts.

 

What’s the expiration date?

Full spectrum hemp extract is surprisingly stable, but the general recommendation is to start fresh if you haven’t finished the bottle within one year.

 

What is Hemp-Derived CBD?

REALCBDforME partners exclusively with brands whose products are made from hemp plants grown in the USA. Cannabidiol (CBD), a constituent that naturally occurs in Hemp, is just one of over 85 cannabinoids identified in the cannabis plant. Hemp is cultivated for high levels of CBD, and grown sustainably outdoors at scale.

Why Choose Products on REAL CBD FOR ME?

We make sure the products we offer are produced with the most natural raw materials available.  Additionally, we have partnered with the top domestic and compliant Hemp farms protected under the 2014 Farm Bill and Government Pilot Program for Hemp Research.

Our products work! We independently lab-verify the potency of each item we offer, randomly testing a sample out of each batch. From the time the CBD hemp flower is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, the product is tested multiple times to ensure accuracy in potency information, and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold, as well as cannabinoid content.

REALCBDforME offers a 30 day 100% satisfaction guarantee for our products. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you may return the unused portion for a full refund less any shipping and handling. To request a refund or for more information, please contact our customer care at (833) 761-0007, by email at support@realcbdforme.com

Please see our terms page for more information.

 

What’s the difference between this and the hemp products that I can buy in the grocery store?

Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it infeasible as a CBD supplement. These products often have misleading, unclear packaging.

In contrast, we choose to work with companies we have verified have accurate packaging, honestly representing the product inside.

 

Does cannabidiol (CBD) and other natural hemp based constituents show up on a drug test?

It depends on the testing standards of the lab administering your drug test. Most companies only search for the cannabinoid THC, which is the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. While the products on REALCBDforME are THC free, there are some testing facilities that check for a spectrum of cannabinoids and could trigger a positive drug test. By law, you are allowed to ask the facility which cannabinoids they test for. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can call and ask anonymously. We suggest contacting the testing facility if there is any concern.

CBD is considered to be undetectable in saliva or urine tests, though there remains a rare instance that the small trace amounts of THC may be detected. All of our products comply with all regulations regarding minimal THC content, and our full-spectrum hemp oil contains less than 0.3% THC by volume, as required by law. It is highly unlikely, but we recommend that you consult your physician before being too confident.

 

Is this legal?

In accordance with federal and international laws, products REALCBDforME offers are made with CBD extracted from the industrial hemp plant and are safe and compliant across the board. Under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD derived from Hemp Seed Oil that has less than 0.3% THC by dry weight is federally legal. All products offered contain less than 0.3% THC and are legal in all 50 states. We do not ship to Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska or South Dakota at this time.

 

 Can I order in bulk?

If you have large orders or special needs, please reach out to us by phone and our administration team will coordinate with you to help expedite the process.

 

How long will it take to ship my order?

Standard orders should be delivered within 3 to 5 business days following order confirmation. Please allow up to 2 additional days for rural zip codes. Shipping is available within the U.S. and standard orders can be delivered to P.O. boxes. P.O. box deliveries will be shipped via USPS. We also ship standard orders to US Territories, Alaska, Hawaii and APO/FPO/DPO addresses, which requires additional time for delivery and may be subject to delivery restrictions based on the item type, weight and size. During high season and sale, delivery might take a little longer.
