FAQs

CBD “ON-THE-GO” PACK (15% OFF)

With any ingestible full spectrum CBD product which contains THC, there is a risk of being flagged on a drug screening. Though the likelihood of failing a drug test with CBD depends on a few factors, including metabolism, frequency of dose, dosage, and method of testing.

If it is what’s called a dip stick test, you will usually fail, especially if you’ve consumed CBD in the last 24 hours. The reason is because that is a weight based test and CBD and THC weigh virtually the same, so the test could be picking up the CBD more than the THC. The only way to delineate the two would be a true toxicological urine test where they can separate out the masses of THC vs CBD.

Unfortunately, to prevent a failed drug screening, abstaining from ingesting any product that contains THC is the only guarantee.

The only caveat to this is our CBD topicals. Because they only interact with receptors in the application area, they don’t reach the bloodstream and won’t flag a drug screening.

No. Generally, lowing your use of painkillers will protect your kidneys. Because CBD can serve as a non-toxic anti-inflammatory and pain reliever for some, you may be able to both find relief and reduce damage to your kidneys. Additionally, CBD may help lower blood pressure, which may reduce the chances of arterial damage associated with high blood pressure.

A recent toxicology study conducted with CBD in mice concluded CBD can be detrimental to the liver at high doses. However, the study was conducted to find the upper limit of CBD’s toxicity, meaning the mice were essentially force-fed extremely high doses of an alcohol-based CBD product specifically to determine at what point CBD negatively impacted the mice.

It would be very difficult for a human to consume the same level of CBD to cause liver damage, and most CBD products on the market are not alcohol-based, which further minimizes risk of liver damage.

The caveat is CBD oil does interact with the liver in a such a way that it can reduce the effectiveness of other medications. A family of enzymes in the liver called cytochrome P450 break down drugs into smaller bits, allowing our cells to absorb and eliminate them. Although the impact has been shown to be minimal, CBD can reduce these enzymes’ abilities to metabolize some medications.

While there’s no guarantee, generally CBD will not show up on routine blood work. Routine blood tests typically aren’t used to detect CBD. Someone who wants to detect CBD in your system would need to order a specific test for that purpose.

Usually, blood tests are commissioned for detecting a disease or as a part of medical tests commissioned by an employer. In these scenarios, CBD is not a concern, hence the test will not be focused on its detection.

Studies show CBD does interact with dopamine receptors, which can affect behavior and cognition, such as motivation and reward-seeking behavior. This has researchers curious about CBD’s potential therapeutic benefits for addiction, specifically with regards to dampen opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

The first studies on the impact of CBD in human anxiety utilized the Simulated Public Speaking Test.

Researchers found that CBD could improve social anxiety brought on by this test. Interestingly, though CBD is often ingested alongside THC, CBD appears to mitigate anxiety that accompanies THC consumption.

While there is much research to be completed on the effects of CBD, early research indicates CBD may be helpful for relieving symptoms of the following:

Unlike marijuana, full spectrum CBD from hemp has a very low percentage of THC, the compound that creates the euphoric “high” associated with marijuana. CBD does not make you feel “high” and it is generally accepted that you’ll experience no impairment in decision making, driving, and so on while taking CBD. CBD is often reported to make you feel relaxed or realize benefits of pain relief. 

The time CBD remains in your body depends on several factors, including metabolism, frequency of CBD use, CBD dosage, and method of administration (sublingual vs. topical vs. edible). While research is lacking on the toxicology of CBD and how long it remains detectable in blood or urine, existing conclusions indicate CBD will likely leave the system within 1-2 weeks.

There are different strengths of CBD oil. Generally, CBD oil is sold in bottles containing a certain number of milligrams of CBD, so you may see 750mg, 1500mg, 3000mg bottles and so on. This number references the total milligrams of CBD in the bottle, not per dose.

Measuring strength is dependent upon the size of the bottle. For example, a 2oz. bottle that contains 1500mg of CBD is half as concentrated as a 2oz. bottle that contains 3000mg of CBD. This means a 1mL dose of the 1500mg bottle is half as “strong” as 1mL from the 3000mg bottle.

Full spectrum CBD is derived from hemp and contains many cannabinoids beyond only CBD, including THC, along with other elements of the hemp plant, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more.

The alternative to full spectrum CBD is CBD isolate, which contains only CBD – the CBD molecule is chemically isolated from everything else in the plant. CBD isolates have no identifiable amount of THC, the well-known chemical found in cannabis that creates that euphoric high, and they’re stripped of the other beneficial and nutritional compounds, like terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, and protein mentioned above.

Every cannabinoid and terpene found in a hemp plant has a specific biochemical effect, and studies have indicated there is a greater benefit when the full spectrum of compounds work together in what is known as the “Entourage Effect.”

In particular, researchers in a 2015 study conducted at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School concluded full spectrum CBD was more effective at treating inflammation than CBD isolate, on the basis that other components in the full spectrum extract synergized with CBD.

Full spectrum CBD oil is most often reported to reduce inflammation, which can lessen joint pain, nerve pain, and muscle soreness. There is also some research indicating CBD can aid with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injuries, though conclusive studies are to be longed for. Finally, CBD’s anti-inflammatory qualities, as referenced in the National Institute of Health’s patent, are being researched for their impact on overall brain and cardiovascular health.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil Questions

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive compound found in hemp. CBD is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids found in hemp, which endow the plant with its therapeutic profile.

Unlike THC, another well-known phytocannabinoid in cannabis, CBD does not make a person feel “high” or intoxicated. The therapeutic benefits of CBD are being tested and confirmed by researchers today. As detailed on our Hemp Science resource, the research to date indicates CBD can help with pain, inflammation, sleep, and neurological conditions.

There is not a significant amount of research in humans to identify the effects of consuming alcohol alongside CBD. 

The research that has been done (mostly in animals, such as mice) has identified that CBD may protect against alcohol induced cell damage while reducing blood alcohol concentrations (“What Happens If You Mix CBD and Alcohol”). This is not to say that taking CBD makes consuming a higher amount of alcohol safe, both of these substances should be consumed in moderation. Both CBD and alcohol have a sedation effect on the body and when taken together, these substances may amplify each other (“What Happens If You Mix CBD and Alcohol”). This amplification could make the consumer significantly impaired.

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in plants, creating the fragrance found in plants like Lavender, pine, and hemp. These are the same compounds found in essential oils. Terpenes are beneficial for the plants as they either attract or repel insects. Attracting pollinators is crucial to the reproduction of many plant species and the same goes for keeping predators away. 

Studies have shown that terpenes may have many different beneficial properties (depending on the type of terpene). Ingesting or smelling these terpenes may have some of the following benefits in humans:

 

Anti-inflammatory

Antioxidant

Antiviral

Antidiabetic

Anticancer

Antimicrobial

Antidepressant

Neuroprotective

Antianxiety

(“What to know about terpenes,” 2020)

There are many different types of Terpenes and each varies in its terpene concentration and potential benefits. Research is continuing to be done to discover the wide variety of health benefits related to terpenes.

The color of CBD oil is dependent on a couple of factors and generally is a good way to tell what quality of product you are buying / looking at. CBD oil can range from a light gold color to an almost black or dark brown color. Generally speaking the darker the color, the more concentrated the product is. CBD Isolate or CBD by itself is an almost clear color. Full-spectrum CBD oil is a darker color as it is a more concentrated hemp extract. 

Factors affecting the color include the carrier oil, additional ingredients, and the methods of extraction. Additional ingredients tend to include added flavors which vary from brand to brand as well as different products within one brand. Some methods of extraction include, CO2 extraction, Steam distillation, hydrocarbon solvent extraction, and natural solvent extraction. 

Laura’s Mercantile CBD oil is golden in color and our product is as close to the natural plant as possible, meaning that they are full spectrum and contain the maximum amount of benefits. 

There are several factors that play into how long CBD will remain in your system including metabolism, BMI, frequency of CBD use, CBD dosage, and method of administration (sublingual vs. topical vs. edible). A slower metabolism will mean that it will take longer for the CBD to leave the system. The food in your digestive system at the time of ingestion can also affect the bioavailability in your body, meaning that certain foods can increase the absorption of CBD.

 Sublingual ingestion (placing a dose under the tongue) is considered to be more effective than ingestion. “Effective” in this scenario means a higher amount of absorption in a shorter period of time. 

There is still not enough research regarding the toxicology of CBD and how long it is detectable in blood or urine. Existing research indicates that CBD will most likely leave the system within 1-2 weeks. 

The FDA has not approved CBD oils at this time. But, the leadership at Laura’s Mercantile is currently working with the staff of Kentucky’s congressional delegation. Specifically, we are working with U.S. Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s staff to work with the FDA in order to follow policies and procedures for Laura’s Homestead Alternatives to be FDA compliant. 

We know now that SARS-CoV2 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person sneezes, coughs, shouts, talks expressively or sings. Since the early days of the pandemic, the air-borne nature of the virus has become clearer, and we’ve been instructed to wear masks when in public.

One idea floating around the hemp CBD community comes from a paper titled “In Search of Preventative Strategies: Novel Anti-inflammatory High CBD Cannabis Sativa Extracts Modulate ACE2 Expression in COVID-19 Gateway Tissues.” The basic idea is that COVID enters the body through the mouth or nose by binding with ACE2 receptors there. Since cannabinoids also bind with ACE2, theoretically they should block entry of the COVID virus. 

The paper and comments can be reviewed here.

There is one pre-publication review, written by Jordan Curl, who is a former Marine turned cannabis consultant, which I expect aims in the right direction. Here it is in its entirety:

“It is very interesting that this organization points out this was a high CBD extract from a chemovar of cannabis SATIVA. They say they screened 1000s of plants of which only a few had that characteristic. My guess is that they found some phenotype higher in “minor” cannabinoids and don’t want to say. Look at the analytics and they show THC/CBD only. Aside from being a blatant advertising plug, it also doesn’t factor in terpene content or other cannabinoids which are known to have synergistic effects together with THC and CBD.”

Curl is referring to the entourage effect, which we at Laura’s Homestead Alternatives think likely is a powerful one. Read more about the science here.

Because of this, we at Laura’s Homestead Alternatives only produce full-spectrum CBD, extracted from USDA-Certified, Mt. Folly grown organic hemp. Hemp plants contain more than 100 cannabinoids and terpenes. We trust the plant, trust nature, and are not trying to patent nature either!

However, the study was conducted to find the upper limit of CBD’s toxicity, meaning the mice were essentially force-fed extremely high doses of an alcohol-based CBD product specifically to determine at what point CBD negatively impacted the mice.

It would be very difficult for a human to consume the same level of CBD to cause liver damage, and most CBD products on the market are not alcohol-based, which further minimizes risk of liver damage.

The caveat is CBD oil does interact with the liver in a such a way that it can reduce the effectiveness of other medications. A family of enzymes in the liver called cytochrome P450 break down drugs into smaller bits, allowing our cells to absorb and eliminate them. Although the impact has been shown to be minimal, CBD can reduce these enzymes’ abilities to metabolize some medications.

While there’s no guarantee, generally CBD will not show up on routine blood work. Routine blood tests typically aren’t used to detect CBD. Someone who wants to detect CBD in your system would need to order a specific test for that purpose.

Usually, blood tests are commissioned for detecting a disease or as a part of medical tests commissioned by an employer. In these scenarios, CBD is not a concern, hence the test will not be focused on its detection.

Studies show CBD does interact with dopamine receptors, which can affect behavior and cognition, such as motivation and reward-seeking behavior. This has researchers curious about CBD’s potential therapeutic benefits for addiction, specifically with regards to dampen opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

The first studies on the impact of CBD in human anxiety utilized the Simulated Public Speaking Test.

Researchers found that CBD could improve social anxiety brought on by this test. Interestingly, though CBD is often ingested alongside THC, CBD appears to mitigate anxiety that accompanies THC consumption.

While there is much research to be completed on the effects of CBD, early research indicates CBD may be helpful for relieving symptoms of the following:

Unlike marijuana, full spectrum CBD from hemp has a very low percentage of THC, the compound that creates the euphoric “high” associated with marijuana. CBD does not make you feel “high” and it is generally accepted that you’ll experience no impairment in decision making, driving, and so on while taking CBD. CBD is often reported to make you feel relaxed or realize benefits of pain relief. 

The time CBD remains in your body depends on several factors, including metabolism, frequency of CBD use, CBD dosage, and method of administration (sublingual vs. topical vs. edible). While research is lacking on the toxicology of CBD and how long it remains detectable in blood or urine, existing conclusions indicate CBD will likely leave the system within 1-2 weeks.

There are different strengths of CBD oil. Generally, CBD oil is sold in bottles containing a certain number of milligrams of CBD, so you may see 750mg, 1500mg, 3000mg bottles and so on. This number references the total milligrams of CBD in the bottle, not per dose.

Measuring strength is dependent upon the size of the bottle. For example, a 2oz. bottle that contains 1500mg of CBD is half as concentrated as a 2oz. bottle that contains 3000mg of CBD. This means a 1mL dose of the 1500mg bottle is half as “strong” as 1mL from the 3000mg bottle.

Full spectrum CBD is derived from hemp and contains many cannabinoids beyond only CBD, including THC, along with other elements of the hemp plant, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more.

The alternative to full spectrum CBD is CBD isolate, which contains only CBD – the CBD molecule is chemically isolated from everything else in the plant. CBD isolates have no identifiable amount of THC, the well-known chemical found in cannabis that creates that euphoric high, and they’re stripped of the other beneficial and nutritional compounds, like terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, and protein mentioned above.

Every cannabinoid and terpene found in a hemp plant has a specific biochemical effect, and studies have indicated there is a greater benefit when the full spectrum of compounds work together in what is known as the “Entourage Effect.”

In particular, researchers in a 2015 study conducted at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School concluded full spectrum CBD was more effective at treating inflammation than CBD isolate, on the basis that other components in the full spectrum extract synergized with CBD.

Full spectrum CBD oil is most often reported to reduce inflammation, which can lessen joint pain, nerve pain, and muscle soreness. There is also some research indicating CBD can aid with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injuries, though conclusive studies are to be longed for. Finally, CBD’s anti-inflammatory qualities, as referenced in the National Institute of Health’s patent, are being researched for their impact on overall brain and cardiovascular health.

HOMESTEAD ALTERNATIVES EXTRA STRENGTH CBD LOTION – TRAVEL SIZE (MENTHOL)

With any ingestible full spectrum CBD product which contains THC, there is a risk of being flagged on a drug screening. Though the likelihood of failing a drug test with CBD depends on a few factors, including metabolism, frequency of dose, dosage, and method of testing.

If it is what’s called a dip stick test, you will usually fail, especially if you’ve consumed CBD in the last 24 hours. The reason is because that is a weight based test and CBD and THC weigh virtually the same, so the test could be picking up the CBD more than the THC. The only way to delineate the two would be a true toxicological urine test where they can separate out the masses of THC vs CBD.

Unfortunately, to prevent a failed drug screening, abstaining from ingesting any product that contains THC is the only guarantee.

The only caveat to this is our CBD topicals. Because they only interact with receptors in the application area, they don’t reach the bloodstream and won’t flag a drug screening.

No. Generally, lowing your use of painkillers will protect your kidneys. Because CBD can serve as a non-toxic anti-inflammatory and pain reliever for some, you may be able to both find relief and reduce damage to your kidneys. Additionally, CBD may help lower blood pressure, which may reduce the chances of arterial damage associated with high blood pressure.

There is also some research indicating CBD can aid with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injuries, though conclusive studies are to be longed for. Finally, CBD’s anti-inflammatory qualities, as referenced in the National Institute of Health’s patent, are being researched for their impact on overall brain and cardiovascular health.

With any ingestible full spectrum CBD product which contains THC, there is a risk of being flagged on a drug screening. Though the likelihood of failing a drug test with CBD depends on a few factors, including metabolism, frequency of dose, dosage, and method of testing.

If it is what’s called a dip stick test, you will usually fail, especially if you’ve consumed CBD in the last 24 hours. The reason is because that is a weight based test and CBD and THC weigh virtually the same, so the test could be picking up the CBD more than the THC. The only way to delineate the two would be a true toxicological urine test where they can separate out the masses of THC vs CBD.

Unfortunately, to prevent a failed drug screening, abstaining from ingesting any product that contains THC is the only guarantee.

The only caveat to this is our CBD topicals. Because they only interact with receptors in the application area, they don’t reach the bloodstream and won’t flag a drug screening.

No. Generally, lowing your use of painkillers will protect your kidneys. Because CBD can serve as a non-toxic anti-inflammatory and pain reliever for some, you may be able to both find relief and reduce damage to your kidneys. Additionally, CBD may help lower blood pressure, which may reduce the chances of arterial damage associated with high blood pressure.

A recent toxicology study conducted with CBD in mice concluded CBD can be detrimental to the liver at high doses. However, the study was conducted to find the upper limit of CBD’s toxicity, meaning the mice were essentially force-fed extremely high doses of an alcohol-based CBD product specifically to determine at what point CBD negatively impacted the mice.

It would be very difficult for a human to consume the same level of CBD to cause liver damage, and most CBD products on the market are not alcohol-based, which further minimizes risk of liver damage.

The caveat is CBD oil does interact with the liver in a such a way that it can reduce the effectiveness of other medications. A family of enzymes in the liver called cytochrome P450 break down drugs into smaller bits, allowing our cells to absorb and eliminate them. Although the impact has been shown to be minimal, CBD can reduce these enzymes’ abilities to metabolize some medications.

While there’s no guarantee, generally CBD will not show up on routine blood work. Routine blood tests typically aren’t used to detect CBD. Someone who wants to detect CBD in your system would need to order a specific test for that purpose.

Usually, blood tests are commissioned for detecting a disease or as a part of medical tests commissioned by an employer. In these scenarios, CBD is not a concern, hence the test will not be focused on its detection.

Studies show CBD does interact with dopamine receptors, which can affect behavior and cognition, such as motivation and reward-seeking behavior. This has researchers curious about CBD’s potential therapeutic benefits for addiction, specifically with regards to dampen opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

The first studies on the impact of CBD in human anxiety utilized the Simulated Public Speaking Test.

Researchers found that CBD could improve social anxiety brought on by this test. Interestingly, though CBD is often ingested alongside THC, CBD appears to mitigate anxiety that accompanies THC consumption.

While there is much research to be completed on the effects of CBD, early research indicates CBD may be helpful for relieving symptoms of the following:

Unlike marijuana, full spectrum CBD from hemp has a very low percentage of THC, the compound that creates the euphoric “high” associated with marijuana. CBD does not make you feel “high” and it is generally accepted that you’ll experience no impairment in decision making, driving, and so on while taking CBD. CBD is often reported to make you feel relaxed or realize benefits of pain relief. 

The time CBD remains in your body depends on several factors, including metabolism, frequency of CBD use, CBD dosage, and method of administration (sublingual vs. topical vs. edible). While research is lacking on the toxicology of CBD and how long it remains detectable in blood or urine, existing conclusions indicate CBD will likely leave the system within 1-2 weeks.

There are different strengths of CBD oil. Generally, CBD oil is sold in bottles containing a certain number of milligrams of CBD, so you may see 750mg, 1500mg, 3000mg bottles and so on. This number references the total milligrams of CBD in the bottle, not per dose.

Measuring strength is dependent upon the size of the bottle. For example, a 2oz. bottle that contains 1500mg of CBD is half as concentrated as a 2oz. bottle that contains 3000mg of CBD. This means a 1mL dose of the 1500mg bottle is half as “strong” as 1mL from the 3000mg bottle.

CBD itself is non-intoxicating. Full spectrum CBD products taken at commonly recommended dosages have no practical chance of making you “high,” as you might experience with marijuana. Since full spectrum CBD oil contains such a low concentration of THC, the risk of intoxication isn’t present.
