Product Information (Topical Hemp Balm 500mg CBD)
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 120 different molecules called “cannabinoids” found in cannabis. Just like it’s more popular sister, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD offers a large amount of health benefits…but without the “high” that is associated with THC. People are looking to CBD products to help with symptoms from conditions such as pain and inflammation. CBD can also help with mental issues such as anxiety and depression.
Interesting Fact: There is actually a pharmaceutical grade CBD product that exists to help manage seizures associated with epilepsy. The prescription drug is called Epidiolex.
This is a big question. Essentially, our cbd extracts contain all of the beneficial molecules that a cannabis plant would, except for the THC. Our products are THC free, so that means you are reaping all of the health benefits that are associated with cannabis, minus the psychoactive molecule of THC.
Not everyone enjoys the way THC makes you feel.
Interesting Fact: Did you know our bodies have an endocannabinoid system? It is fully functioning, and we actually have CBD receptors in our bodies!
Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states. CBD made from marijuana, with high levels of THC, is only legal in states that have legalized marijuana. All CBD oil sold by New Phase Blends is considered THC Free (meaning less than 0.3% THC content). For more information, please see the FDA’s regulation of cannabis and cannabis-derived products here.
Interesting fact: Originally, marijuana use and sales became illegal under the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, with this illegality continuing under the Controlled Substances Act. Yet, since then, several states have taken the steps to legalize this drug, even if just for use as medical cannabis.
While it is technically possible to show a false positive on a drug test for THC, it is highly unlikely as long as your CBD oil is genuinely THC free. If enough THC is present, it will show up on a drug test. This means that in rare cases, using CBD might lead to a positive drug test. New Phase Blends offers THC free CBD oil verifiable by a certificate of analysis by our laboratory. These can be viewed under the header “certificate of analysis” on the product pages.
If you have a job that has very strict rulings against the use of THC, it is probably more safe to avoid CBD useage, for now. You will most likely not test positive for THC, but on the rare chance that you do…it’s just not worth it.
CBD has different effects on different people and varies from person to person. The cream can last for up to 6 hours on some users. If you are a new user, closely monitor how much CBD cream you used and how long it lasted. You can adjust the amount applied to the skin as needed.
It depends on the situation and the manner in which you are intaking the CBD. If you are using this to smoke or vape, it can work within as little as 5 minutes. Taking it sublingually (drops under the tongue) can take effect in as little as 10-20 minutes. Ingesting it, or eating it through the stomach, can break down a large portion of the ingredients and can take over an hour to work.
You now know that CBD extract comes from the leaves, stalks, and flowers of the Cannabis plant while hemp oil comes from the seeds of the Cannabis plant. CBD is the most active ingredient of CBD oil. While hemp seed oil doesn’t have CBD, it is still enriched with protein, vitamin E, and polyunsaturated acids. Both oils have positive attributes, just in a different manner.
Most people will apply the topical to an area that is affected by pain. The balm will penetrate the skin’s cellular membranes and get into your blood stream accordingly.
