__faq What is CBD? CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound naturally found in hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike THC, it is non-intoxicating, and it does not produce a high. Numerous studies indicate that CBD may support homeostasis, or balance in your body’s natural rhythms. What Are The Benefits Of Using CBD? Unfortunately, we are not allowed to tell you! We wish we could, not only because we are incredibly proud of our products, but also because we get emails from people all across the country telling us how Green Roads has made a difference in their lives. However, the US Food and Drug Administration currently prohibits all manufacturers of CBD from making any claims about the ability of their products to treat specific health conditions. Health claims are only permitted where approved by the FDA and based on accepted clinical trials. Because CBD is relatively new to the market, the lengthy clinical trial period is still in process. As a pharmacist-founded company, we know how important it is to comply with FDA rules, and we know that their oversight of the CBD market will only help to distinguish our high-quality products from other brands in the marketplace. Until the FDA approves clinical trials (and lets us shout about our products from the rooftops), we encourage our customers to look at the considerable information and many personal testimonials available online. Or join our thousands of loyal customers and just give Green Roads a try! Either way, we know you’ll be delighted by what you discover. Is CBD legal in my state? All Green Roads’ CBD products are made with CBD extracted from the industrial hemp plant. This type of hemp has less than 0.0mg THC and does not alter the mind like other drugs. Green Roads is proud to offer CBD that complies with The 2014 Farm Bill. Do I need a prescription or medical card to order? No! A medical card or prescription is not needed to place an order. Is there THC in your CBD product? No, Green Roads’ CBD is extracted from industrial hemp plants, which by law can have no more than 0.3% THC. This is already not enough to produce a high. We then reduce the THC content in our products further, all the way down to less than 0.0mg THC levels to reassure our customers that our products are non-intoxicating. What are Terpenes? Terpenes are organic compounds from plants that give fruits and flowers their taste and aroma. We offer CBD terpenes, which are oils with terpenes, for their amazing flavors, and to tap into a phenomenon known as the “entourage effect”. This effect is based on research which suggests that multiple compounds within a hemp plant interact with the body for greater potential impact. Is CBD Psychoactive? No, CBD is non-intoxicating and will not produce the high associated with THC. Will CBD get me high? No, THC is the chemical in marijuana that produces a high. Industrial hemp that contains 0.3% THC is federally legal because this is considered too low to have any effect. Green Roads takes it a step further and reduces THC all the way down to less than 0.0mg levels. Will I fail a drug test after consuming CBD? You will not fail any drug tests since these tests do not detect such low levels of THC. What is the endocannabinoid system? The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors in your brain and nervous system. CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors which keeps your body in balance. Will CBD help me? The best answer is from our customers. Don’t take our word for it, hear what our customers have to say. Are your products Non-GMO? No, Green Roads products are not genetically modified. How does Green Roads modify their hemp? Green Roads chooses healthy plants over less healthy plants in order to keep good genes and remove the bad ones. This process allows Green Roads to produce the highest quality CBD products.
