Frequently Asked Questions
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the production and sale of hemp, and it’s extracts. Hemp, by federal law cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. Anything with more is classified as marijuana and, therefore, considered a schedule 1 drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration and is federally illegal. All of our products conform to FDA regulations. None of our products contain more than .3% THC.
Even though it comes from the same plant, CBD is different from marijuana because CBD contains only trace amounts of THC. THC is the compound that creates the marijuana “high” due to its psycho-active nature. The tiny amount of THC in CBD products is not enough to create that “high.”
Here at Hope CBD, all of our CBD products are not just grown, but grown organically. This means our CBD plants are grown without the use of any water-soluble, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Farming organically leads to authentic CBD without any additives non-organic farming practices can leave behind. It also is healthier for the soil we plant in, as organic practices prevent erosion and makes it easier for the soil to retain water.
None of our products contain strange or unrecognizable ingredients. The only product that isn’t organic is the candy because we have to use coloring.
Organic CBD is grown without the use of any pesticides or other chemicals. This means there are no toxins or harmful chemicals in any part of the process of creating CBD products. Additionally, organic CBD like ours is more nutrient-dense and beneficial to your health, as synthetic chemicals can actually sap vitamins and minerals from the soil in which the hemp is grown. This makes organic CBD more effective for your needs.
Everyone is unique. Due to the nature of how naturally-derived cannabinoids work within the human body, CBD is known to possibly have a slightly different effect on each person who takes it. It can be helpful to consult with your doctor about whether you would be a good fit for CBD product use.
There are many different forms of CBD products, but the two largest groups are CBD Topicals and CBD Edibles. Topicals consist of creams, salves, lotions, and oils, and are designed to be applied and absorbed through the skin. Edibles are products designed to be ingested and taken orally. They can be derived in many forms including pastries, candies, capsules, and drinks.
- Tinctures: We recommend placing one full dropper under your tongue and allowing it to absorb for a few seconds then swallowing. This allows the CBD to absorb sublingually and get directly into your system.
- Salves: We recommend using our salves in a couple of ways. They are fantastic for joints and muscles. Salves make a great massage lotion.
- Capsules: Are the perfect solution for folks on the go. All you have to do is swallow one small capsule and be on your way.
- Massage oils: are a great way to relax and forget about all those aches and pains life creates.
- Hard Candy: Is another great option for those on the go. Candy doesn’t leak like a tincture bottle or melt like gummies. You can keep them in your bag or on your desk. Just pop one candy in your mouth and let it dissolve and enjoy the wonderful flavor and the quick absorption into your system.
CBD oil can be administered in a few different ways. Your doctor will help you figure out which is the best method for your needs. You can add CBD oil to your food or drink, or you can place a few drops under your tongue. CBD oil can also be vaped, or it can be added to lotions for you to apply topically to help with a localized area of pain.
With the correct research in advance and a conversation with your doctor, you will have a better idea of which form of CBD you will most benefit from. There are plenty of commercially-available products crafted with high-quality CBD, and each product has its advantages. Using an effective CBD strategy for you is essential to getting the most out of these products, and it may take some trial and error before you find what works best.
Our bodies hold two different cannabinoid receptors, which help your internal system run better. They help our body's appetite, immune system, and emotions among others. CBD works as a catalyst to influence different bodily functions.

The serving size of CBD you should be taking depends on a range of personal factors, including:
- your body weight
- the condition you are treating
- your individual body chemistry
- the concentration of CBD in each pill, capsule, drop, or gummy
In other words, there are many variables that go into deciding your serving size of CBD. Before trying any CBD products, make sure you talk to your doctor about an appropriate dosage and any potential risks. If your doctor tells you how much to use, stick to their recommendation. This is important especially if you are currently taking any medications that could conflict with CBD.
