What benefits does CBD have?

“CBD shows great clinical research potential as an aid for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high dosages.” Sourced from Project CBD.org


Is CBD/Hemp legal?

The Legality of CBD from hemp is based on a 2004 unanimous ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which determined that the DEA “cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana, i.e., non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled..”


Will CBD appear on a drug test?

We cannot make any claims on whether or not any of our products will show up on a drug test. Our Isolate, Terpsolate, Pet tinctures and NON-full spectrum tinctures have no detectable THC. We are not legally able to make any guarantees regarding drug tests on THC free or full spectrum products. For more assistance please do further research at ProjectCBD.org.


How much CBD should I take?

Legally, we are not permitted to make dosage recommendations. We would suggest doing further research at ProjectCBD.org using this direct hyperlink will take you to their Patient Guidance page, which has abundant information for using and dosing with CBD. CBD effects everyone differently so the product and dosage that may work best for one individual may differ for another both immediately and over time.


Will CBD interfere with any medication I am on?

Sourced from ProjectCBD.org “Yes. CBD inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is involved in metabolizing many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group, which is why physicians advice patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication. By inhibiting cytochrome P450, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. In some situations, it may be advisable for a physician to monitor a patient’s blood levels of other medications while taking CBD.“ Please see the hyperlink above to take you directly to their page and read more information.


What is full spectrum and does it differ from isolated CBD compounds?

Our CBD Isolate is Pure isolated CBD crystals. Full spectrum hemp oil products contain additional cannabinoids beside only CBD. There is strong research and debate about which is “better”, however, CBD and its other cannabinoid counterparts affect and work differently for every individual. The product that will work best for you is greatly depending on your individual needs and experience. We offer both options to give you the choice that best suits you.


Are the Hempire State Organix products third party tested?

Yes! all our products are 3rd party tested by Pro Verde Labs. We use only Organic, Non-GMO sourced materials for our products.


How is Hemp different than Marijuana?

Hemp and Marijuana are from the same gene pool of the Cannabis-Sativa plant but hemp unlike marijuana contains extremely low (0.3% of less) levels of THC. THC is the compound in marijuana that is psychoactive (gets one “high”).


Does CBD get you “high”?

No. CBD is not a psychoactive compound and will not get you high. In fact, CBD will counteract the psychoactive high that THC makes you feel.


What are Terpenes? Your nose knows.

Terpenes (and terpenoids) are aromatic organic compounds found in many plants and even some insects. Terpenes are the flavor and aroma. Terpenes are essential oils that live in the same glands as the cannabinoids (THC and CBD) called trichomes. Terpenes are not exclusive to the cannabis plant and in fact, they exist in EVERY plant on earth!

Terpenes do more than just give a delicious flavor and aroma to hemp, they are directly responsible for the unique feelings associated with each strain. Two plants could have similar cannabinoid levels, but completely different terpene profiles. The terpene structures would result in two vastly different experiences based on the terpenes they contain.


Why do we infuse with Cannabis mimicking terpenes?

The cannabis plant terpenes have been studied to increase the effects of the CBD and other cannabinoid compounds in the body when used together. Results have shown that with these terpenes the beneficial properties provided by CBD have increased in strength and duration. Using organic herbs and flowers, we mimic these terpenes of specific cannabis strains and infuse them into our products for your best results.
