Medical marijuana is being legalized on the state level in many states across the U.S. In Arkansas, although marijuana for medical use is considered legal, the cultivation of medical marijuana is still in process. Good news is that the use of CBD oil from the industrial hemp plant is legal in the state of Arkansas. Despite having a lower THC concentration patients still gain multiple benefits from CBD oil including reduction of pain, treatment of autoimmune disease, decreased seizure activity, decreased inflammation, and reduced anxiety. At Revive, we feel we have made the best choice when it comes to quality of CBD oil preparation. Complete Body Daily is a an Arkansas based company. The hemp grown for Complete Body Daily is organic, and no pesticides or herbicides are used on the plants. The plants are harvested from an area free from many of the toxins where commercial hemp is grown in Europe and other locations in the United States. It is important to note that hemp plants are known for their ability to clean up toxic environments, hence knowing the plant source is very important when selecting your CBD oil. Complete Body Daily's CBD oils and creams are called "full spectrum" because the products do not isolate individual cannabinoids, meaning you will receive the full entourage effect. It has become clear in recent research that using the entire cannabinoid profile in the cannabis plant is VIP in achieving medicinal benefit. This means that the chemicals contained within the cannabis plant are meant for use together, not individually, i.e. CBD needs the other naturally occurring substances in the cannabis plant in order to maximize medicinal value.
Most common questions asked:
Q: Will I get tested positive for Marijuana use at my workplace?
A: No. Complete Body Daily (CBD) products are free from THC. THC is the highly psychoactive component found in marijuana. CBD products are batch and third party tested for quality assurance regarding this matter.
Q: How do I know how much CBD tincture or how many CBD capsules will I need to take?
A: Lindsey Gillum, APRN is a designated member of the American Cannabis Nurses Association, and is able to help answer these questions. CBD oil is available in 750 mg, and 1500 mg tinctures; CBD is also available in 25 mg capsules. It is important that you speak to your healthcare provider regarding your current medications, as CBD products can effect the way your current medications work.
Q: I don't get it, if CBD is so effective, how is it still legal? Why doesn't everyone benefit from CBD products instead of THC containing ones?
A: This goes back to the first question, and more. CBD oil maybe a misnomer. Complete Body Daily's CBD oil is considered "full-spectrum." This means that other active components except THC are included in their CBD oil, including but not limited to CBD, CBN, CBC, and CBG. The efficacy of CBD is not dependent on THC content. Although THC has psychoactive properties, it is not the only active and useful cannabinoid. Hemp is a "cousin" of the higher THC-containing plants, as long as the THC content is under 0.3%, the plant is considered federally legal. Some conditions such as anorexia, nausea, and asthma respond better to THC containing products.
Q: Will I get "high" if I use Complete Body Daily CBD products?
A: No, although several other cannabinoids used in CBD oil are non or mildly psychoactive, they will not give you the "high" commonly associated with marijuana consumption.
Q: What is the difference between "hemp" and "marijuana"?
A: Both are from the same plant family, known as the cannabis plant. You can think of hemp and what we call medical marijuana as cousins.
