Well, the simple answer to this is; THC will get you high. Dark Sky CBD will not.
To explain this further, we have to get a little bit technical. THC affects the brain by binding to things called CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a completely differently shaped molecule that binds to the CB-2 receptors found in cell and body tissues outside of the central nervous system.
The short answer? No. Dark Sky CBD is non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive. THC is the molecule that attaches itself in the brain and causes the psychoactive effects that marijuana is best known for. Some research has shown that CBD actually has the potential to prevent THC from binding to receptors in the brain.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the many active cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant. It is the second most abundant cannabinoid behind THC. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is non-pcychoactive. This means it cannot get you high.
Our bodies have a system throughout them called the endocannabinoid system. Dark Sky CBD works by binding to the cannabinoid receptors found in this system. These receptors have been found in almost every cell and tissue type throughout the human body. Our research shows that the human body may have evolved with CBD or hemp being a staple part of our diets throughout the course of history. Hence the seemingly endless possible positive benefits of taking Dark Sky CBD on a regular basis.
There are a few different ways to isolate and extract CBD from the cannabis plant, but there is a clear winner when it comes to the safest, purest form of extraction. That winner is the CO2 extractions method. This is the method you should look out for when purchasing CBD isolate products. This method leave virtually zero traces of chemical contaminants in the end product. Alcohol extraction is another method. With this method a liquid such as butane or ethanol is run through raw plant materials to extract the CBD and then evaporated to leave only the CBD. This method isn’t as “clean” as CO2 extraction as it can leave trace amounts of the liquid (Butane/ethanol) in the final product.
Although incredibly unlikely, it could happen. It really depends on the amount you are consuming, the quality of the product and the THC content. To be classed as a CBD product, a product must contain less than 0.3% THC. CBD isolate products should contain 0% THC, but once again we come back to purchasing quality products from trusted manufacturers that do in fact test their products correctly. A recent study has shown that people who consume 6mg of THC per day have a 25% chance of failing a drug test. This equates to about 2000mg of CBD per day with a THC content of 0.3% CBD. To put that into perspective, the recommended daily intake of Dark Sky CBD is between 25mg-50mg, so you would really have to be using a huge amount of Dark Sky CBD to fail a drug test.
In saying all of this, we still believe that the “better safe than sorry” mentality should be applied when purchasing Dark Sky CBD products. If you are unsure, it may be worth speaking to your HR or someone in your job that could better answer this question.
One of the best things that Dark Sky CBD has going for it is the constant innovation. There are so many different ways to consume Dark Sky CBD, it’s really more of a question of “Which way do you feel most comfortable getting your daily dosage?”.
Obviously, for specific reasons, different ways can be better than others. For example, if you’re interested in Dark Sky CBD for something like anxiety, then rubbing a CBD topical into your skin probably isn’t going to be the most effective way to go.
Here’s a small breakdown of the different ways of taking CBD;
- Vaping/smoking – Fast acting, short lasting
- Topicals/creams- Fast acting, short lasting
- Edibles – Takes about 40 minutes to an hour to act, longer lasting
Yes. Dark Sky CBD is as natural as it comes. It comes directly from our grow room. If you want a truly natural experience, try some Dark Sky CBD hemp flower or order a few pre-rolls if you don’t want to roll your own.
Dark Sky CBD is legal at the federal level. Industrial hemp is described by the 2018 Farm Bill as having less than 0.3% THC. Dark Sky CBD is not intoxicating, and will not generate a high.
Always check your State laws: State laws differ on the legality of Dark Sky CBD. So be sure to check your State laws before using or purchasing Dark Sky CBD product.
The answer to this question is tricky. On one hand, according to the FDA no health claims are allowed for CBD products. On the other hand, there is in fact one FDA approved CBD product on the market called Epidiolex; which is used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome in patients 2 years of age and older.
We can only tell you that Dark Sky CBD works differently for everyone. The only real way to find out of Dark Sky CBD could benefit you is to give it a try yourself.
The amount of Dark Sky CBD you should take a day really depends on what you are trying to achieve. The recommended daily dosage for someone starting a CBD regiment is between 25mg-50mg a day. There are lot’s of varying factors to take into consideration; Weight, Sex, tolerance etc.
