It can safely be combined, but the results vary greatly from heightened productivity to feeling sleepier than normal. This depends entirely on the individual’s reaction and the ratio of caffeine to CBD. If interested, start with a low dose on a day you aren’t going to work to see if it feels right for you.
Cannabidiols were first discovered by University of Illinois professor Roger Adams in 1940. Six years later, Dr. Walter S. Loewe carried out an experiment on lab animals and concluded CBD does not cause any mental psychoactive state. In 1963, Israeli chemist Dr. Raphael Mechoulam synthesized CBD, and a few years later the first CBD oil was produced by British Pharmacopoeia.
CBD oil and tinctures typically have a lifespan of two years once opened if stored properly. This is highly variable, and it is suggested to check the smell, texture, and color before use if stored for an extensive period of time. CBD products can still be good, but may lose potency if opened and unused.
The World Health Organization states in their Critical Review Report that, “while the number of studies is limited, the evidence from well-controlled human experimental research indicates that CBD is not associated with abuse potential.”
Many studies are currently being conducted to gain more insight of all its potential benefits with focus on treating dementia and Alzheimer’s. Dr. Danial Schecter, Director of Global Medical Services at Canopy Growth Corporate, discussed during a Forbes interview how he treats his elder patients interested in CBD: “It (CBD) is what we call non-euphoric-inducing, in that it doesn’t cause you to feel high, but it is still what we call psychoactive, meaning that it has an effect on the neurotransmitters and the chemistry of your brain, just like an antidepressant or a sleep aid would have.” “Usually, the psychological symptoms will take longer to actually improve or respond to CBD than the physical symptoms. So we would often recommend a slower titration for anxiety or depression, and for the physical symptoms that have a quicker response, we could recommend a quicker titration.”
Third-party research and testimonials suggest CBD can improve sex by “increasing pleasure, easing stress and anxiety, including performance anxiety, and setting the right mood. There are so many cannabinoid receptors in reproductive organs and sexual tissue. CBD increases blood flow to tissues.” Only one sure way to see if it works for you.
Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
CBD works on the endocannabinoid system. This system exists in all humans and most mammals. The endocannabinoid system is a network of neurons and synapses throughout your body and brain. These emit and respond well to cannabinoids — a chemical that the hemp plant produces and, a chemical our own bodies produce!
CBD works because the cannabinoids it contains bind with the endocannabinoid system (CB1 and CB2 receptors) to create a fully functioning network of neurons in your body. That’s why our bodies respond so well to CBD when we provide it with extra cannabinoids, our bodies love them.
Hemp and CBD are both considered safe and should not produce any adverse side effects in most people. However, everyone processes CBD and other dietary supplements differently, and it is always recommended to consult with a physician before adding any supplement to your diet.
Yes. CBD inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is involved in metabolizing many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group, which is why physicians advise patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication. By inhibiting cytochrome P450, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. We always suggest checking with your physician.
- Begin with a low dose especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis.
- Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose.
- Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount.
- Don’t overdo it. “Less is more” is often the case with cannabis therapeutics
If the product contains only CBD and has had the THC removed, then an individual being tested would not be expected to test positive for marijuana or marijuana metabolite. While a considerable amount of full spectrum CBD companies contain THC, we do not.
Terpenes are essential oils found in plants. There are around 200 terpenes in cannabis. They are what give cannabis its distinct aroma and flavor. Terpenes have beneficial effects and work synergistically with cannabinoids like CBD – this relationship is called the entourage effect.
THC is a binding molecule which is why people often think it is needed for CBD to be effective, however, there are several cannabinoids, Terpenes and essential oils that we use that will create all of the binding needed for the CBD to be effective at its highest potential.
No. CBD oil is a medicinal product. CBD oil is a liquid concentrate of CBD. Another term for CBD oil is CBD. Hemp oil is a food product made from pressed hemp seeds. Hemp oil is a highly nutritious food product which contains no CBD.
CBD oil is best stored in a dark, cool place. CBD oil is sensitive to light and air, so the bottle of CBD oil should be closed well after use. The oil is suitable for daily use, so it is easiest to reach if placed in an easily accessible place. Most people simply place the oil in their fridge.
Both our Hempzilla and Connoisseur Select brands are backed by Hempzilla’s gold standard of quality. Where they differ is that Connoisseur Select features strain-specific flower, pre-rolls, and tinctures that offer a more custom experience, where Hempzilla products feature out proprietary CBD and terpene blends amongst a wide range of ingestible and topical products.
Indica is known for its calming effects, being perfect to take when you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or ready to relax before bed. In contrast, Sativa is known for it’s energizing effects, being great for social situations or for use in the middle or beginning of your day.
All Hempzilla brand products are Hybrid, but the Connoisseur Select line features Indica and Sativa specific products, such as our best-selling Lifter (sativa-dominant) and Suver Haze (indica-dominant).
CBD is extremely easy to incorporate into your daily routine because of how many ways you can use it. Whether it be through discreet methods such as ingesting topicals and gummies, adding a tincture or CBD honey to your morning smoothie or tea, using lotions or salves, or vaping and smoking, the possibilities are endless with Hempzilla CBD.
As long as the product you are using is exceptionally high quality, there is no wrong way to use CBD – it relies on what pain points you have, and what you’re looking to get out of the product. For sore or inflamed muscles and joints, we recommend our topicals, while for calming benefits of CBD we recommend ingesting or vaping.
Everyone has a different genetic makeup, so everyone will have a different tolerance to CBD just as any other product. We recommend starting with a lower milligram strength such as 150mg or 300mg, and then moving up from there if needed.
Just CBD-rich Hemp! Nothing else is included in our cigarettes, and they never have any traces of Nicotine in them, making them a great or more healthful alternative to cigarette smoking.
Our CBD is organically grown and ethically harvested right here in the USA, specifically in Colorado and Oregon. We take the farm-to-table approach with our CBD to ensure purity, potency, and freshness.

To date, no fatal reports of overdosing have been attributed to CBD. That does not mean you will not feel possible adverse side effects, such as dryness of mouth, in extremely high doses when taken daily for an extended period of time.
Oh no, Mittens broke into your snack drawer again and swiped the gummies! Luckily, the World Health Organization discovered in their Critical Review Report that, “it (CBD) has no effect on a wide range of physiological and biochemical parameters or significant effects on animal behavior unless extremely high doses are administered (e.g., in excess of 150 mg/kg iv as an acute dose or in excess of 30 mg/kg orally daily for 90 days in monkeys).” In fact, the research goes on to suggest that it may prove to be beneficial for canines and felines in reducing epilepsy and anxiety symptoms.
Most users vaping or smoking will feel the effects within 15 minutes and last between 2-3 hours, while applying the topicals or eating edibles will likely take effect in 1-2 hours and last 4-6 hours.
The Food and Drug Administration strongly advises against it, for there is no comprehensive study at this time.
Full-spectrum CBD contains a trace amount of THC, terpenes, and hundreds of other phytochemicals found in the cannabis plant, leaving it in its most natural form. Isolate is when the CBD alone is extracted without terpenes. Broad-spectrum is somewhere in between, removing THC as much as possible, while also preserving the rest of the plant. Our products are extensively lab-tested to ensure no THC is detectable.
What causes the smell in both CBD and marijuana is the amount of terpenes present. Although similar, CBD pre-rolls have a milder smell than marijuana when burning.
