Our CBD product Q and A:

What is CBD?

CBD (or cannabidiol) is one of over 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than it is in marijuana.

Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound, Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is a psychoactive compound.

What are the Benefits of CBD?

You’re probably wondering what the benefits of CBD are…

Unfortunately, we are not allowed to tell you! We wish we could because we’re incredibly proud of what we do.

We hear stories from people all over the country who tell us how our products have changed their lives. However, the US Food and Drug Administration currently prohibits all manufacturers of CBD products from making any claims about their ability to treat specific health conditions.

Health claims are only permitted where approved by the FDA and based on accepted clinical trials. Because CBD is relatively new to the market, the lengthy clinical trial period is still in process.

We at Comfort Leaf, make compliance with regulations one of our top priorities.

We’re confident the FDA’s oversight of the CBD market will only help to distinguish our high-quality products from alternatives. Until the FDA approves clinical trials, we encourage our customers to look at the considerable information and many personal testimonials available online.

…or you can just join our thousands of loyal customers Comfort Leaf a try! Either way, we know you’ll be delighted by what you discover.

What should I look for when buying CBD oil?

Consider the following questions when buying:

  1.  Where is the hemp grown or sourced?
  2.  Is the oil full-spectrum or isolate?
  3.  What other ingredients are in the oil?
  4.  Is it third-party tested? *This is important to clarify ingredients and potency. 
Will Comfort Leaf’s products get me high?

NO. They will not get you high. CBD is non-intoxicating and our products contain zero THC, guaranteed.

Can you take too much CBD?

Even though CBD oil that only contains CBD will not get your high, once you reach your therapeutic dose, taking more will likely just make you want to take a nap.

Studies have found that in some people CBD can cause diarrhea, changes in appetite, and fatigue. It is best to follow suggested serving to get the best results.

CBD, even in reasonably high doses is safe. Like anything, if ingested recklessly, it could have negative side effects, however, those side effects pale in comparison to other substances, even other cannabinoids.

Here’s to the – healthy, natural – Comfort you deserve.

How much CBD should you take?

Before trying CBD, you should always talk to your doctor about an appropriate dosage and any potential risks first. The serving size based on factors, including:

  • Your body weight.
  • Your individual body chemistry.
  • The concentration of CBD in each pill, capsule, drop, or gummy.

If your doctor doesn’t provide a recommendation, it’s best to start with a smaller serving. This could mean starting with as little as 10 to 20 mg a day. 

We provide our customers with a CBD dosage card in every order. It would be wise to keep track of how much CBD you’re taking and whether your symptoms are getting better. Write it down on paper or in a notes app on your phone.

Am I in a legal state where I can l buy CBD oil?

We acquire our industrial hemp within the U.S. from our farming partners in the great State of Kentucky, that are operating under a legal hemp program in a state that is fully compliant with Federal Farm Bill section 7415.

Comfort Leaf proudly complies with all existing guidelines, including the The Controlled Substances Act of 1970The Agricultural Act of 2014, Section 763 of The Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2016The Agricultural Act of 2018 and relevant state laws having jurisdiction over both nutritional supplements and hemp-derived products.

What kind of tests do you run on your products?

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are essential oils responsible for the distinct aromas, flavors, and colors of plants including hemp!

They are what give the Pineapple Express strain its citrus and tropical taste and Strawberry Lemonade its sweet and fruity flavor, but terpenes do more than just deliver delicious flavor. They also determine how a particular strain will affect your body and mind thus having a direct effect on your whole CBD experience!

What is MCT Oil?

MCT oil is the combination of the two fatty acids C8 and C10, or pure C8, extracted from coconut and palm oil. MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. You may also see them called MCFAs (medium-chain fatty acids). 

MCTs are known for being quickly absorbed by your body and metabolized into energy in the liver. They’re the most efficient saturated fats in terms of energy production.

They create ketones, an energy molecule. Ketones are an amazing source of energy for your body in comparison to glucose because they produce far less molecules that react with other molecules when they are metabolized.

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.

There are two main types of receptors in the ECS: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2s are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce: 2AG and anandamide. 

Why do you source your hemp from Kentucky instead of Colorado?

Kentucky’s ecology is perfect for growing hemp. The growing season is longer and the soil is richer than Colorado’s for best quality. Growing under the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program is also 100% compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill, which means harvesting and distributing is 100% legal at the federal level.

What's the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil?

The main difference between hemp and CBD oils is that hemp oil contains only minute concentrations of the healthy cannabinoids compared to CBD oil.

CBD and hemp oils are made from different parts of the plant and have different purposes. CBD is a compound found in industrial hemp, and we utilize a whole-plant CO2 extraction process that allows us to draw the CBD from the plant material and filter out unnatural substances, maximizing pure CBD concentration.

While CBD is extracted from the entire plant, minus the seeds, hemp oil is extracted only from the seeds. Hemp oil is made from pressing hemp seeds and is used in a variety of over-the-counter products.

Hemp-seed oil is used as a protein supplement for food, as varnish for wood and, because of its remedial properties for hair and skin, as an ingredient in lotion and soap products.

You can buy hemp-seed oil online or at health food stores, where you can learn about more ways to incorporate it into your diet and hygiene.

CBD oil is generally used for medicinal purposes and has shown great promise in treating inflammation, pain, sleeping disorders and even certain types of seizures.
