FAQ

What is CBD?

CBD is one of the most prominent naturally occurring compounds found in hemp and cannabis plants. When CBD is extracted from hemp, it can be processed in many forms including ingestible oils, topical salves, smokable vapes, and edibles. Otherwise known as a cannabidiol, CBD has been shown to interact with receptors in the body to deliver wellness benefits.

What is CBG?

CBG (Cannabigero) is considered the “mother cannabinoid” of hemp and cannabis plants because it can transform into compounds like CBD and THC under certain conditions. CBG binds directly with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body to deliver its wellness benefits.

Are CBD and CBG legal in the United States?

CBD and CBG are federally legal in all 50 states as long as they’re sourced from hemp plants that contain less than 0.3% THC. Medical Mike’s CBD and CBG oils and salves are all sourced from legal hemp. 

Although research shows CBD is well-tolerated and legal, please consult with your healthcare provider before consuming hemp products–especially if you're subjected to drug tests. 

 

Will I fail a drug test if I take CBD or CBG?

The risk is low. However, all hemp products may contain trace amounts of THC at levels less than 0.3%. If you are subject to drug tests, you may want to consult with your physician first. 

 

Are CBD and CBG legal in New York?

In short–yes. After the federal government passed the 2018 Farm Bill, all hemp extracts including CBD and CBG became legal in every state. Following the bill, New York hemp legislatures have already released rules to legally govern hemp extracts in supplements, including CBD and CBG.

What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Legally speaking, hemp is a cannabis variety that contains less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana is also a cannabis variety. But marijuana strains can contain highly potent levels of THC and are illegal in all 50 states. 

 

Will CBD or CBG get me high?

No. CBD and CBG are non-psychoactive and cannot get you high. 

 

Why do people take CBD, CBG, and other hemp extracts?

People take CBD, CBG and other hemp extracts for a variety of wellness benefits. We hear encouraging stories of people using CBD to aid in sleep, pain and stress. However we need to be clear–CBD is only FDA-approved to relieve certain forms of epilepsy. If you are interested in taking CBD or CBG for any other reason, please consult with a medical professional first. 

 

What dosage should I take?

CBD and CBG are natural compounds that interact in everyone’s body differently based on hormones, age, weight, sex, health status and even mood. That means 5 mgs may be enough for you. Or you may prefer 25 mgs or more. The experts recommend “starting slow and low.”
