CBD 101

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound known as a cannabinoid naturally occurring in the hemp plant's flowers and leaves. CBD has strong anti-inflammatory and tension-relieving properties that support the body and mind in various ways.

How does CBD work?

CBD produces effects in the body's endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for helping maintain homeostasis and balance. The body naturally produces cannabinoids to help regulate mood, pain, and sleep, but these can become diminished due to internal imbalances or external stressors. Using CBD to help supplement the body's natural cannabinoids may optimize whole-body wellness.

Will CBD make me high?

CBD is non-intoxicating—so it will not get you high. CBD works with your body's endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating many bodily functions but has zero intoxicating effects.

Is CBD safe?
Yes. CBD is a naturally occurring compound that is safe for human and pet consumption. If you are on medication, you should consult your doctor before adding CBD supplements to your wellness routine.
Is CBD legal?

Absolutely. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp and all hemp extracts and cannabinoids (including CBD) from the Federal Controlled Substances Act. As a result, hemp is now regulated like any other agricultural product and is entirely legal under federal law. It's important to note that the legal status of CBD products varies from state to state. Royal Ostrich is only shipping to those states that legally allow the sale of CBD products.

How much CBD is in Royal Ostrich products?

CBD levels vary across products; however, you can view our Certificate of Analysis on each product here.

How much CBD is right for me?
We get it. Starting a CBD regimen can be intimidating. We were there too. Please review our dosing guide to determine what’s a good fit for you. At Royal Ostrich, we recommend that new users start slowly, dosing on the lower end while more experienced users can choose higher options.
Is CBD good for my skin?
Heck yeah. CBD is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which means it can help speed up your skin’s healing process and fight stubborn acne.
Do Royal Ostrich products contain any THC?

No, our products do not contain detectable THC levels, and Royal Ostrich uses third-party labs to test each product so that you can feel good about the choices you are making. See our Certificate of Analysis here.

What makes Royal Ostrich products different from other CBD products?
Glad you asked. While many of the CBD products on the market are derived from industrial hemp, Royal Ostrich products are made from a CBD-rich strain known as PCR hemp. PCR stands for phytocannabinoid rich – it contains as much as ten times the concentration of CBD as generic industrial hemp and non-detectable amounts of THC. It does not cause a high.
Are there different kinds of CBD oil?
Yes, CBD oils (extracts) primarily fall into three categories: CBD isolate, full spectrum oil, and broad spectrum oil. As the name implies, CBD isolate oil is the purest form of CBD. The oil is pulled from the hemp plant and processed to remove all other ingredients leaving only CBD. Full spectrum CBD oil contains all the natural chemicals found in the hemp plant, including various cannabinoids, essential oils, and terpenes. Broad spectrum oil also contains several cannabis plant compounds, but is refined to remove any THC. The additional compounds in full and broad spectrum oil support the entourage effect, which is believed to boost the compound's performance. All of Royal Ostrich products use broad spectrum CBD oil (with the exception of the Gummies and Ravishing Lip Plumper; both these products use isolate CBD oil).
Can you take too much CBD?

You can not overdose on CBD, but if you ingest too much at one time, you could experience some very minor side effects, like dizziness. We recommend going low and slow when starting with CBD tinctures, softgels, and gummies. As time goes on, you'll learn more about how your body responds to certain CBD products; you will be able to find a dosage that's perfect for you.
