CBD is non-psychoactive and does not get you high. The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) have being extracted and reduced to <0.3% to zero remaining THC in the CBD products.

What is the proper dosage of CBD?

There are different factors that play into the dosage rate such as concentration, weight, condition and body chemistry. A good rule of thumb is 1-6MG for every 10 lb. of body weight. For example, if you weigh 200 lb. then 20MG (10MG twice daily) a day would be adequate. Results may differ from person to person because it all depends on what they are using the CBD for and body make composition. You want to start off with small doses then increase until you get your desired results.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

There are different factors that come into play with drug test and CBD. How stringent is your company’s drug screening, amounts of CBD being consumed and its concentration? Most company drug screen programs test for THC threshold greater than 0.7% while others like the military and police force may have stringent screening in place up to even hair follicle testing. Your full spectrum products contain <0.3% THC. Refer to lab results to see how much THC is in your full spectrum products. There should not be and overly concern about a positive drug test results unless your taking large quantities of CBD. If you have any doubts, then I would recommend going with a CBD isolate product which has zero THC.

Full spectrum CBD contains more cannabinoids, terpenes along with minerals and essential vitamins. CBD isolates is pure CBD and contains only CBD. In other words, full spectrum CBD will contain levels of THC that are <0.3% while CBD isolates contain 0% THC.

Why should we purchase Cruzan Farms products?

At Cruzan Farms we believe in quality over profit. When customers buy a product, they want to be confident they are getting the quality they are paying for especially with CBD products since most consumers are using these to help them get through their day to day lives. This is the main reason why our CBD products come from organically grown hemp here in the USA with no pesticides, no GMO and no synthetics.

Why is this important?

Hemp has been scientifically proven to be a phyto-remediative plant. This means that whatever environment the hemp plants are grown in, it will leach and absorb the contaminants from the soil therefore if it is grown in soil that is full of pesticides those chemicals will be absorbed into the hemp plant. Once the CDB is extracted from those contaminated plants so does the pesticides. You could end up getting a contaminated product that will make you sick due to the environment it was grown in. Therefore, it is so important that you choose a trusted company that grow there hemp organically. Always request lab results when you purchase a product. If a company cannot provide a third-party lab results, stay away. At Cruzan Farms all our product is third party tested. With Cruzan Farms, you can rest assured you are getting quality CBD products.
