MD Organix Frequently Asked Questions
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol. It is one of many chemical compounds called cannabinoids produced in the hemp plant. It can function in the body as a neurotransmitter, helping to regulate specific physiological functions, and has several therapeutic benefits. Often, you may see CBD contained in supplements containing organic curcumin.
CBD oil, known as cannabidiol, is the all-natural essential phytocannabinoid extract that comes from the flowers, leaves, stems, and stalks of the Hemp plant.
Cannabinoids are a type of active biological compounds produced in plants (phytocannabinoids) or the physical body (endocannabinoids) that interact with receptors in the brain and throughout the body either directly or indirectly to trigger the release of certain neurotransmitters. These, in turn, regulate specific biological processes and functions to help maintain balance in the mammalian body, which is known as homeostasis.
The endocannabinoid (ECD) system is part of the nervous system in humans and certain other mammals. The nervous system produces neurotransmitters like endocannabinoids that act on the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and other cell membranes to regulate various biological functions on a cellular level. The ECD system plays a key role in maintaining balance in the body, which is termed as homeostasis.
When you buy hemp oil online, be sure you know whether you are buying medicinal hemp oil or culinary hemp seed oil. Unlike CBD oil, hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the hemp plant rather than the flowers, leaves, stems, and stalks. As a result, hemp seed oil will Not give you any benefits that you would realize with phytocannabioids and Terpenes, which are located in the flowers, and leaves in the hemp plant.
CBD is a Phytocannabinoid compound found in hemp. Hemp can be used to make commercial products such as rope and insulation, as well as fiber, and phytocannabinoid extracts. Hemp-derived extracts can be used to make full and broad spectrum products to include CBD oils, tinctures, concentrates, isolates, lotions, creams, balms, and other products.
What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp seed oil?
Unlike CBD oil, hemp seed oil contains no CBD or other cannabinoids and no plant terpenes.
All of our CBD products are considered safe by the World Health Organization (WHO) having no abuse potential. MD Organix products contain only pure Phytocannabinoids to include CBD, as well as the full compliment of vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, and terpenes. The psychoactive component of THC has been removed and the certificate of analysis (COA) confirms that THC is Not detectable in any of our products. The COA is available to all customers online through our lab results tab. In addition, all of our products are tested rigorously to be sure they contain no metals, molds/fungi, chlorophyll, solvents or contaminants.
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. While hemp is a specific strain of cannabis high in CBD, marijuana is a common term used to refer, mostly, to other strains of the cannabis plant that are higher in THC, which is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Marijuana may refer to cannabis sativa, indica, ruderalis or a hybrid of these. Hemp is a type of cannabis sativa that contains minimal THC and, therefore, is not commonly used to produce a mind-altered state, or a “high.”
CBD can be used for a variety of therapeutic purposes. The most common purpose is to use phytocannabinoid rich hemp-derived extract for overall health and wellness to maintain balance emotionally and physiologically, which is referred to as homeostasis. Research into the possible uses for CBD and other phytocannibinoid compounds is a growing area of study. Some scientists and researchers believe the list of potential benefits for phytocannabinoids such as CBD and others is likely to grow.
Our products have been laboratory-tested to ensure they contain zero to undetectable quantities of THC.
There can be traces of THC in some CBD oils and CBD oil products, which is why it’s essential you research products and read labels carefully. CBD oil extracted from Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp should have less than 0.3% THC. Unfortunately, due to the lack of current regulation for full spectrum CBD oil, products with higher percentage quantities of THC may be made available to the marketplace. MD Organix products go through a post extraction process using proprietary chromatography technology to take out any, if Not all, residual THC that may remain. To verify the THC content, you should be able to view lab results from a third party laboratory. Md Organix provides this transparency on our lab reports tab.
Lab reports for all our products are posted on our website under the lab results tab. simply find the lot number on your MD Organix product. The lot number can be found at the bottom of your bottle or the side of your “doggie” treats bag. Type the lot number into the window and hit enter. Your lab results will be made available for download, print, or both.
Cannabis generally contains large quantities of THC that produce a high. Depending on your reasons for using cannabis, CBD may offer you a way to get the therapeutic benefits you need without subjecting yourself to the unwanted psychoactive side effect of a high you get from THC. Additionally, cannabis may contain many other compounds besides cannabinoids, including plant fibers, which is another reason to consider choosing CBD over cannabis. Furthermore, CBD oil can be exclusively isolated from the psychoactive THC phytocanabinoid, which enables you to have the ability to drive, work, or operate machinery without added risk.
CBD oil is used throughout the world to treat a range of conditions, but the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved CBD for any medical uses except certain seizure disorders. Therefore, we are unable to claim that it can cure, treat, or mitigate any medical conditions. Although ample studies and anecdotal evidence affirms its potential for particular medical purposes, MD Organix is under the auspice of the FDA, who requires that we Not make specific claims for any medical conditions until a conclusion is reached as to whether or Not the CBD compound is considered a drug, a dietary supplement, or generally recognized as safe and effective. Although there are studies that suggest specific benefits for various diseases and ailments, these particular studies do Not meet the rigorous demands required by the FDA for clinical drug trials. As a result, we request that you discuss any potential medical benefit CBD oil may offer with your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider has access to peer review journals that will enable him/her to make the proper decision as to whether or NOT CBD oil would be beneficial, along with your current drug regimen, to help improve your quality of life.
Broad spectrum CBD oil contains the full compliment of phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp-derived CBD oil minus the psychoactive phytocannabinoid THC. Broad-spectrum PCR hemp-derived CBD oil also contains plant terpenes and other useful compounds like flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals.
MD Organix Broad spectrum CBD oil contains THC levels that are undetectable. Therefore, it would be extremely rare to experience any psychoactive affect from our Broad spectrum phytocannabinoid rich hemp derived CBD oil..
The benefits of taking broad-spectrum CBD products offered from MD Organix are the same as taking full-spectrum CBD oil with the exception that there are undetectable to zero traces of THC in our broad spectrum CBD oil products. Therefore, the psychoactive component is absent in our Broad Spectrum products. Another way of stating this would be to say that our products are THC free full-spectrum CBD. In both full and Broad spectrum products you receive the full compliment of Phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Full spectrum Phytocannabinoid Rich (PCR) Hemp has all 113 Phytocannabinoids to include THC while Broad Spectrum PCR has 112 Phytocannabinoids, which does Not include the psychoactive phytocannabinoid THC. AS a result, getting a positive THC result from a third party laboratory is slim to none with MD Organix broad-spectrum PCR hemp-derived CBD oil. In contrast, full-spectrum PCR hemp is far more likely to show a positive result for the THC phytocannabinoid.
One possible reason people report increased benefit from broad or full spectrum CBD over pure CBD isolate is “the entourage effect.” In this phenomenon, different plant compounds such as terpenes, flavonoids, and the 100 plus phytocannabinoids work together to improve the benefits of CBD. When the many components within the hemp plant interact with the human body to produce a stronger influence than CBD isolate alone, a synergistic effect may be realized.
CBD is non-toxic. There are no known causes of overdose from using CBD. AT the World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD)
Thirty-ninth Meeting in Geneva, 6-10 November 2017, it was concluded as follows:
“It [CBD] is generally well tolerated, with a good safety profile. At present, no public health problems have been associated with the use of pure CBD.”
There are a variety of safe and effective ways to take CBD. Which is best for an individual depends on that individual’s circumstances and needs. Among the most common of these ways are the following:
• Nasal spray.
• Sublingual tincture.
• Mouth spray.
• Topical (cream, balm, lotion, etc.)
• Skin patch.
Methods vary in onset, time, intensity and duration of effects, among other qualities.
Terpenes provide the flavors and aromas associated with the hemp plant. They are a type of volatile hydrocarbon made in the flower clusters of the plant. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration recognizes Terpenes as safe for human consumption recognized by its use in a wide variety of cosmetic and food products domestically.
CBD is administered as pet supplements for general pet health, although you should not give your pets CBD products made for humans as the concentrations and dosages would be vastly different. CBD hemp oil for pets are products made specifically with the physiological needs of pets in mind. Consult with your veterinarian to determine correct dosages for your pet.
