CBD Oil FAQ
What Is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (or CBD) oil is a chemical extract taken from healthy cannabis plants. CBD is just one of 113 major active agents called cannabinoids that are found in all strains of cannabis.
Consumer products made from Florida CBD oil are separated into two distinct groups: Marijuana plant extract and hemp extract. Marijuana plant extracts typically contain a concentration of THC that is greater than 0.3% , making is a Schedule 1 substance.
Marijuana plant CBD extracts are typically available where legal medical and recreational cannabis are sold. Conversely, the hemp derivatives sold by Happy Buddha CBD contain only trace amounts of THC – always far lower than than 0.3%, making our products legal to purchase and possess throughout all 50 states. That includes purchases made directly through our website.
Is There a Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?
Yes, there is a difference – and a major one at that!
Hemp Seed Oil is a hemp-based equivalent to olive, vegetable, grape seed, and coconut oils. All the previous examples are good for recipes and other cooking applications, but they do not contain CBD. In short, it has some nutritional value, but not medicinal.
There are, however, some hemp oils that are infused with CBD. The product labeling should make the difference clear. Unrefined, cold-pressed hemp oil typically will not contain even trace amounts of CBD or THC.
If you have any questions regarding the ingredients in any product sold by Happy Buddha, we will be glad to answer them before you buy so you know precisely what you are getting.
What Kind Of CBD Oil Should I Buy?
You should only purchase CBD products that are legal for sale and possession in your state or locality. The differences between products has been outlined above.
If your medical requirements include higher concentrations of THC, you will want to consult with a licensed marijuana dispensary. Our products are all derived from hemp and contain levels of THC low enough to be distributed legally throughout the United States.

How Should I Dose My CBD Oil?
There is no formula for dosing CBD. It is completely safe and non-toxic so you can feel free to experiment. Your body chemistry, age, weight, and intended application all factor in to how much you will need to take at one time.
Use as much as you feel you need to get the desired results. You can gauge how much medicine you are taking by the amount of CBD in the product you are using. Once you find an appropriate level, you can adjust dosing based on the product you are using at the time.
Will I Fail a Drug Test If I Use CBD?
In most instances, drug tests administered by an employer or law enforcement flag only the presence of THC in blood or urine. In a vast majority of cases, you will not fail a drug screen if you are only using hemp-based CBD.
Are There Any Negative Interactions Between CBD and Other Drugs?
There are no known interactions between CBD and other drugs at this time and definitely none that can cause illness or lead to death. There are no known documented cases of fatal overdoses related to cannabis in any way, shape, or form, including the exclusive use of CBD in any form.
Can I Treat My Pet With CBD?
Cannabis has varying effects on animals. Some veterinarians may recommend a regimen including CBD for some conditions, but we at Happy Buddha CBD strongly urge you to consult with your vet before administering any cannabis-based product to your pet. Our products are designed and intended for human consumption unless otherwise specified on the product label.
