CBD is the commonly used abbreviation for cannabidiol, a compound found in hemp and marijuana. CBD sold for consumption comes exclusively from hemp, and is required by the FDA to contain less than 0.3% THC.
It is important to ensure that you consume hemp subject to the health and safety laws of its country of origin. At Medterra, the hemp in all of our oils, tinctures and creams is grown and harvested on farms in the state of Kentucky, USA. It is all farmed according to strict guidelines established by the Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program, ensuring quality and consistency for our consumers at all times.
Our customers report that CBD serves as an ally in treating all kinds of common conditions such as anxiety, sleep, pain, inflammation, acne, and other symptoms.
CBD is part of many people's wellness routine and is a personal choice. Some of our customers prefer oils that are consumed orally under the tongue, others prefer capsules that allow for consistent dosing, and others prefer creams that are rubbed topically on specific areas of the skin.
We hope that you will immediately find the right product for your needs, but if not, we invite you to try the three methods of consumption to confirm which one you like best.
The main difference between CBD oil and hemp oil is that hemp oil does not contain CBD. CBD and hemp oils are made from different parts of the same plant and have different purposes. CBD is a compound found in industrial hemp. Here at Medterra we use a whole plant CO2 extraction process whereby we extract the CBD from the plant material and filter out the unnatural substances, while maximising the concentration of pure CBD.
While CBD is extracted from the whole plant minus the seeds, hemp oil is extracted from the seeds. Hemp oil is obtained by pressing hemp seeds. It is used in a variety of products - as a protein supplement for food, as a varnish for wood, and often in hair and skin products.
CBD interacts indirectly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is responsible for maintaining homeostasis (overall balance) in our body. CBD interacts with the ECS to help maintain this balance.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous system, and it consists of neuromodulatory lipids. There are two main types of receptors in the ECS: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are mainly located in the central nervous system and in the mammalian brain, and CB2 receptors are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. Mammals produce two main cannabinoids: 2AG and anandamide.
The time it takes for CBD to take effect varies from person to person and the product you use. Topical creams are more immediate, an oil can take half an hour to activate, and capsules take about 2 hours as they need to be digested first.
We advise you to start with a small amount and slowly increase the dosage over time as needed. If you want to enjoy the long-term benefits of CBD, it is important to be consistent.
Generally speaking, CBD can stay in your system for 2-7 days. How long it takes your body to eliminate it depends on several factors - such as the dosage you take, how you consume CBD, what your metabolism is like, your age and your weight.
Medterra's CBD isolate is made from certified industrial hemp and not the cannabis associated with marijuana. CBD derived from industrial hemp is federally legal in the United States, and our CBD isolate contains no THC. We use an advanced CO2 extraction method that is safe and gentle, creating some of the highest quality CBD in the country. We pay special attention to our customers' safety and the consistency they expect from Medterra.
At Medterra we like to keep things simple. That's why our CBD products are made with natural and organic ingredients. No heavy metals, bacteria, microbes, mycotoxins or pesticides are in our products.
Yes! All of our products are made from certified organic CBD, grown and harvested on farms in the state of Kentucky. They all meet the strict standards of the United States Hemp Authority.
At Medterra we go the extra mile to offer you a product you can trust! Our CBD is grown and extracted in the state of Kentucky (USA) and follows the guidelines of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's Industrial Hemp Pilot Program. We are also certified by the US Hemp Authority.
Third-party laboratories test each batch of products for purity, concentration, identity and composition, and certificates of analysis are available on our website. Testing by an independent laboratory is the only way to guarantee that a product actually contains everything that is stated on the label. These labs check for CBD and THC content, as well as other additives, and ensure that the product is free of contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, microbes, mycotoxins and pesticides.
When you read the labels on our CBD tincture oils, you will see that we offer different concentrations: 500 mg, 1000 mg, 2000 mg and 3000 mg. Each bottle of tincture contains 30 millilitres of high-quality, hemp-derived CBD oil. It is made with CBD isolate and MCT oil.
The milligram amount on the front label is the amount of our CBD isolate in the entire bottle. Each bottle of tincture comes with a dropper to help you choose the serving size. The dropper provides four different CBD concentrations: .25 ml, .50 ml, .75 ml and 1.00 ml.
If a bottle has a total of 30 millilitres and there is 3000 mg of CBD isolate in the bottle, then each dropper full (1 ml) will produce 100 mg of CBD isolate.
European regulations do not allow us to make recommendations regarding health. We suggest you consult your doctor if you can incorporate the use of CBD in your treatment, especially if you are taking other prescription drugs. If together you decide it is right for you, we will be happy to guide you and answer any other questions you may have.
European regulation does not allow us to make recommendations regarding health. While our customers claim that CBD can provide a variety of health benefits and is safe, much more research needs to be done in the case of combining it with other medications. We recommend always consulting with your doctor first, especially if you are currently taking prescription medications. If together you decide it's right for you, we'll be happy to guide you and answer any other questions you may have.
No, they won't get you high. CBD is non-psychoactive, and we guarantee that our products are certified THC-free.
While the THC content of our products is below the legal limit and they are certified THC free (0.1%) and do not produce any psychoactive effects, we cannot guarantee that no traces will show up in a drugs test. If you are concerned, it is best to be cautious.
According to a 2017 World Health Organisation report, "All patients tolerated CBD, with no signs of toxicity or serious side effects." In general, we recommend starting with a small dose of CBD and slowly increasing it over time until you find the amount that works best for you.
