FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?
The primary difference between hemp oil & CBD oil is that the oil itself is derived from the hemp plant. Hemp Oil is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant only. CBD Oil is derived from the stalk, stems, leaves, or flowers of industrial hemp plants. Hemp Oil does not contain CBD. If you see hemp oil or hemp seed oil on amazon, it does not have any CBD. Amazon does not sell CBD products.
What is the difference between Cannabis, Hemp, and Marijuana?
One of the questions that often comes up is, what is the difference between cannabis, industrial hemp, and marijuana? Cannabis is the Family of plants that Hemp and Marijuana both belong to. Marijuana can be either Cannabis Indica, Cannabis Ruderalis, or Cannabis Sativa L. Industrial Hemp can only be Cannabis Sativa L. Additionally, the hemp must be produced within the parameters of the USDA’s rules and State Agriculture Department rules, and contain no more than .3% delta9 THC. The only true difference between hemp and marijuana is the levels of cannabinoids.
What part of the Hemp plant does CBD Oil come from?
CBD Oil is typically derived from the flowers of the hemp plant as they contain the highest levels of cannabinoids. CBD oil can also be made from the stalks, stems, and leaves of hemp plants.
Does CBD Oil cause failure of a drug test?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, should not test positive for marijuana. That’s because most drug tests are currently only looking for one specific psychoactive cannabinoid, Delta 9 THC. Full spectrum CBD oil will contain trace amounts of Delta 9 THC. There are several other variables to consider. For this reason, we cannot guarantee you will pass a drug test after taking CBD Oil.
Can you take CBD oil on an airplane?
If you travel with CBD Oil derived from hemp with a THC content below 0.3%, you can take CBD Oil on an airplane.
The TSA has issued guidelines on what they will and will not allow. TSA can stop you from attempting to travel with edibles, dried flower, or other forms of cannabis that contain THC. However, CBD Oil and Hemp Oil are somewhat different. The DEA and FDA don’t consider CBD Oil that is made from hemp the same as psychoactive cannabis as long as the total THC content is below 0.3%.
Can you get high on CBD oil?
No, CBD Oil will not get you high. It is derived from industrial hemp, not marijuana. CBD Oils sourced from industrial hemp plants are non-psychoactive. CBD and other cannabinoids that are considered non-psychoactive do still have physiological effects on people. CBD itself is relaxing and can make some people tired.
How long does it take for CBD oil to take effect?
We are very careful not to make any claims until clinical trials prove it. But from anecdotal evidence, the answer really depends on you as an individual. The length of time for CBD Oil to take effect depends on the individual’s body weight, how well their metabolism works with the CBD Oil, and the reason that they are taking CBD Oil. You may notice a difference anywhere from your first day to up to 30 days. With this in mind, most of our oils are intended for 30 days of use and may last longer depending on your dosing needs.
Is CBD legal to ship?
Nurse CBD/Nurse Wellness products are 100% legal to ship to any state allowing CBD products. We work very strictly under the Farm Bill of 2014, section 7606, the 2018 Farm Bill, and with the Department of Agriculture to ensure our farm & production operations are 100% compliant and legal.
How do I know what dose of CBD oil I should take?
How much CBD Oil you should take is an important question, but one that is difficult to answer. CBD Oil’s recommended dosage differs for every person depending on your unique situation. Body weight, metabolism, and the reason for taking CBD oil, for example, can affect the dosage required to achieve effectiveness. We recommend starting your dosage low and titrating up until you achieve the desired results and then maintaining that level of cannabinoids in the body.
Does it matter what plant the CBD oil is extracted from?
There is no difference between CBD Oil extracted from marijuana vs industrial hemp. CBD Oil is just that, CBD Oil. However, CBD oil is only federally legal when derived from industrial hemp and contains .3% or less delta 9 THC.
How long will CBD oil stay in your system?

Yes, you should be able to drive after taking CBD Oil or Hemp Oil. Our CBD Oils contain less than 0.3% of THC and will have no psychoactive effects on your body. However, depending on how much CBD Oil you take, it may make you tired; therefore, we recommend learning how your body reacts to CBD Oil before driving or operating heavy machinery.
Scientists have learned that the only major cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that will get you “high” is delta9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil & CBD Oil products contain less than 0.3% of Delta9-THC and will not get you “high.” CBD Oil itself has many beneficial effects on the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) as well as other bodily systems. You may want to learn how your body reacts to the effects of CBD Oil before hitting the road or operating heavy machinery.
Balance is key. Finding the CBD Oil dose that works best for you will help create balance and harmony within the body. While it’s clear much study and research still needs to be done, studies have shown that a properly functioning ECS may help your body fight the effects of stress, and disease and improve your mood, overall health, and wellbeing.
