If you’re not following our Facebook group “South Bend Industrial Hemp” I highly encourage it. I love engaging with my hemp friends and facilitate an open dialogue. Facebook is where I’m first to update and post pictures about our grow and day to day activities. On Monday I posted the following set of questions:
Thanks to everyone that participated. If you have a question and it wasn’t addressed here send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on Facebook. We’d be happy to answer any and all questions you have!
Question 1: Will CBD cause me to fail a drug test?
Answer 1: This is a pretty common question we get, and I’m going to share with you our lab reports of our products as well as well a drug test I took. I use 500 mg of CBD everyday and have been doing this for several months with taking ONLY our products. In saying that, when you read this please be aware NOT EVERY COMPANY is like ours. Do your homework and make an informed decision. I CANNOT give you a straight “yes” or “no” answer. I can present you with our data and let you make your own conclusion.
Below this paragraph is a lab report of our 500 mg CBD isolate oil we made. Under the “ID” is all the cannabinoids they tested for. D9-THC is the THC that gives you the “high” feeling. As you can see, we have non-detectable levels. You can see for this product there is only CBD detected. It’s important when looking at COA’s (certificate of analysis) for products on any brand, make sure they are from a certified testing facility. If you would like to see more testing please email email@example.com . (I plan on having a blog just about our lab tests and how we do those, so just be patient)
Next, I will present a voluntary drug test I took. I use only our products daily. It came back “Negative”, which means none of these drugs were detected in my system. If you’re wondering why there is a few more drugs than just THC, this company offers a 5-panel test as its smallest test. The thing I want you to notice is if you look at the level, the lab is testing to 0.15 ng/ml. That means it is testing to the nanogram, which is one-billionth of a gram. Not sure what a nanogram looks like? Here let me show you. The number above 0.15 ng/ml = 0.0000000000015 grams per 1 milliliter. This is consistent with all CDL tests.
Lastly - please take a look at this study by the Pennsylvania Medicine. If your not in the mood to read it, let me summarize it for you if you don't want to read it. Penn Study Shows Nearly 70 Percent of Cannabidiol Extracts Sold Online Are Mislabeled.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND ASK TO SEE LAB RESULTS OF OUR PRODUCTS. THIS IS CRITICAL.
Question 2: I tried some awhile back and I felt like it quit working for me. I’m afraid to spend more money to only have it not work. How much CBD should I take?
Answer 2: There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to how much CBD you should take. Some users are very sensitive to CBD and can feel the effects with as little as 5 mg daily. Some people naturally need more. Your “sweet spot” dosage will involve some experimentation and adjustments. Getting the dosage is critical to seeing success. The biggest frustration some customers is saying CBD doesn’t work for them but have not been willing to experiment to find their personal optimal dosage (the sweet spot). Another factor people don’t consider is the time of day they are using CBD. Some customers find more success taking it at night. Others will split the dosage between morning and night.
SBIH encourages a “low and slow” method. You can gradually increase the dosage if you feel like you are seeing less than desired results. Be patient and see what works for you! This is just a suggestion and not be construed as medical advice.
I like to keep these posts short and sweet. There will be several more posts coming out if you didn’t see your question answered. Thanks for reading. I appreciate every single person who visits our website or tries our products. So much heart as went into this process. It's more than just a product for us.
