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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
