Hemp Day Video: What is CBD/Hemp Oil Extract?

Hemp is helping People across the country

"I see you have CBD, what is that?"

At our Main retail store for Carolina Hemp Hut (Located in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC), I get a lot of customer queries. One of the most popular questions I get asked is "What is CBD Oil or Hemp Oil?"

I'm happy to answer this question and I hope to dispel some myths about CBD and Hemp Oil.

Note: The new store's Grand Opening (Oct 27) Celebration is open to all as it is designed to let people know about not only the store, but about what Hemp Oil MAY offer to people. We still operate the website for the store (https://CarolinaHempHut.com) and the main store site at https://hempoilrockstar.com If you're curious about CBD Oil and #HempOil extracts, then I'm hoping this video will present a primer for you and your friends.

Please, consider sharing this information with family and friends. We have all too many people thinking that CBD or Hemp products are absolutely illegal and this is UNTRUE! Further, with the likely form of the new farm bill (McConnell amendment) and the lean from President Trump, we're more likely to see a wave of CBD usage across the country.

Choosing The Best Hemp Oil

I've often told the story about how I selected the best hemp oil extract for my retail stores. There truly are a lot of hemp oils available on the market. Some are horrible and really a waste of money and others are super-premium all around.

The three questions I used within the Hemp Day video are just three of the many questions and qualifiers that I followed when it came to deciding on the best product mix. I'll likely make a full video of the process I followed. In the interim, be sure to check out all of my Hemp Day Videos and come in to the Streets at Southpoint Mall and visit with us at our Store Kiosk, "The Carolina Hemp Hut".

US Farm Bill allows for Broader legalization of Hemp and products

US Farm Bill FDA Trump CBD

What the Bill Reveals

In the Agricultural Act of 2014 (“Farm Bill”) regarding industrial hemp, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other organizations were given the "green light" to go ahead with pilot programs to allow for hemp to be sold. This led to the adoption by many States of pilot programs to permit growing of the hemp plants in their jurisdictions. This is what provides the lion's share of legal status for hemp and hemp products (such as CBD).

The term “industrial hemp” includes the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part or derivative of such plant, including seeds of such plant, whether growing or not, that is used exclusively for industrial purposes (fiber and seed) with a tetrahydrocannabinols concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. The term “tetrahydrocannabinols” includes all isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers of tetrahydrocannabinols.

Every five years, Congress passes legislation that sets national agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and forestry policy, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill”. In this year's version, many amendments (as will happen with our Congress) were added. The one with the real teeth was Mitch McConnell's amendment. This one more openly allows for Hemp legalization (far more than allowed under the 2014 Farm Bill). Although the final passage of this bill has not hit the goal line with the House's version, many are hopeful that it will so it can be signed quickly into law by President Donald Trump.

Are you worried about whether you will pass a Drug Test after taking Hemp Oil with CBD? Have you heard about the horror stories of people getting penalized because they're not smoking pot but taking Hemp Oil for aches, pains or some other condition of discomfort - and they're worried about the drug test at work? There are a 6 points you need to know about this worry.

I'll help you understand where the pitfalls are and what you can do to avoid trouble from this "simple misunderstanding" - Don't be penalized for doing something that is NOT ILLEGAL.

Don’t let Your CBD healthy and Legal Habit get you into Legal Trouble

A urinary test procedure for identification of cannabidiol in patients undergoing medical therapy with marijuana

Marijuana is classified by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as Schedule I, drugs having no accepted medical value. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. This conflict inhibits physicians from prescribing marijuana and the systematic study of marijuana in medical care. This study concerns the use of the clinical laboratory as a resource for physicians recommending cannabidiol (CBD) to patients, or for patients using medical marijuana. Marijuana containing delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive.

However, CBD is not psychoactive. CBD is reported to have medical benefit for seizure control, neurologic disorders including multiple sclerosis, neuropathic pain and pain associated with cancer.

It was revealed that the studies DID SHOW that CBD with trace THC can caused positives even though the user is taking CBD legally and the THC within that Hemp Oil is well within the legal limits of .3%. This information may be rendered moot should President Donald Trump sign into law a passed Farm Bill (2018) which includes the intact amendment from Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). More on this topic will be reported by the team at Hemp Oil Rockstar.

Dosing a Pet with Hemp Oil

Dosing a Pet: CBD is useful to help pets age comfortably

Your Pets can take CBD

One of my good friends called me late last year. She was panicked because her pet cat, which certainly was a family member, was diagnosed with seizures. The vet was unsure of the best treatment for the feline companion. My pal found out I was offering Hemp Oil Extract rich in CBD for friends and family and she gave me a call.

The rest of the story is wonderful. Her cat has been seizure free since I provided her with some Hemp Oil Extract. There are many Hemp Oil Extracts which are rich in CBD which you can use for pets - some are better than others. We are affiliated with a number of reputable manufacturers of quality Hemp with CBD for animals and we'd gladly recommend them.

One of the biggest worries we had initially was "HOW MUCH TO DOSE?" when it came to the various pets. We did some research and found some great articles that contributed more information to our customers. We passed this information along - making many people much happier.

Future research and experience will give us more information on dosing levels and intervals. Current recommendations for oral dosing of CBD in dogs and cats are 0.02 mg/kg to 0.1 mg/kg given twice daily. According to James Gaynor, DVM, DACVA, DACVPM, of Peak Performance Veterinary Group, for pain management most dogs do well at 0.05 mg/kg twice daily, while cats do well at 0.025 mg/kg twice daily.

 

Your Pets and CBD Oil

Getting your pet to take CBD Oil

Most pets, especially dogs, are eager to take the flavored (for pets) hemp oil extracts. This means you're pretty much guaranteed your pet will be eager to take their dose. This is because most pet-only CBD  providers have been using flavorings (like salmon or beef) to make their oils more enticing for cats and dogs. However, you can use regular CBD oil (peppermint or fancy flavors for humans may not be the best choices for pets) when it's time to dose your pets.

After you've performed the basic calculation based upon your pet's size, consider how you will provide that to the pet for them to consume. We've discovered some of the following very useful techniques.

Dosing a Pet

With the following, mix in the hemp oil extract before giving to the pet:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Bacon fat
  • Butter
  • Other favorite food of pet that's easy to mix

The amount of the mixing element above really doesn't have to be large. A small amount of peanut butter does wonders for the oil we offer our dogs. Same goes for the rest of the mix-ins. The flavor is more important than the quantity of mix-in.

When I have the oil mixed with one of the above, I simply offer the spoon to the pet and it disappears quickly. Perfect dosing.

We also have more information on dosing a pet which may help you achieve a great balance for your pet's health.
