Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol is one of over 80 naturally occuring cannabinoid compounds found in the Cannabis plant. Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound that has been studied at great depth, and has been shown to have numerous therapeutic effects primarily from it’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system of the human body.
While CBD can be found in marijuana, ours comes from the industrial hemp plant, rather than marijuana which contains THC, which is the psychoactive compound associated with the marijuana ‘high’.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD interacts with the human body’s endocannabinoid system, which has receptors throughout the body; from the brain and nervous system to the gut and skin. While CBD is a phytocannabinoid, the body creates cannabinoids as well, called endocannabinoids. It is through this system that these exogenous cannabinoids can interact with the body affecting things like neuroprotection, anxiety, stress, immune system response, pain, and appetite.
What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
In the United States the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is:
“INDUSTRIAL HEMP — The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
Hemp, contains significantly more CBD than Marijuana in most cases
Will I get high?
CBD does not have any psychoactive properties. THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid, is in a concentration of less than 0.3% in industrial hemp. Our CBD isolate is tested, and displays an untraceable amount of THC.
How do I take Glo CBD?
Take one tablet, and chew it. Allowing it to absorb in your mouth via the oromucosal membrane as much as possible increases the bioavailability of the CBD. Because Glo CBD is absorbed primarily through the mouth, more of the Cannabidiol is absorbed into the bloodstream than it would be through a swallowed product.
Can I take GloCBD with medicine?
As with any dietary supplement, we recommend consulting your physician prior to adding Glo CBD to your daily routine.
What is in your 10mg Chewable Tablet?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, (over 100) found in cannabis plants, our CBD is hemp derived isolate. We encourage you to research CBD and its many possible benefits.
Lactose Monohydrate is milk sugar. It is a disaccharide composed of one galactose and one glucose molecule. In the pharmaceutical industry, lactose is used to help form tablets because it has excellent compressibility properties.
Magnesium Stearate (vegetable sourced) is a simple salt made up of two substances, a saturated fat called stearic acid and the mineral magnesium. It’s used in a small amount (1%) as a die release for the tablet press and binding agent for the tablet.
Citric acid is a weak organic acid. It occurs naturally in citrus fruits. It’s used to provide the slight tartness in Glo Tabs.
Our organic elderberry flavoring is a berry extract powder and organic flavor blend powder that we use to provide the unique flavor of Glo Tabs.
MCT oil powder. MCT stands for “medium chain triglycerides” or “medium chain fatty acids.” They’re types of fat most often derived from coconut oil. While MCT on its own is known to help with energy levels, we love the flavor that it provides to our tablets, as well as providing a healthy lipid to aid in absorption of the CBD.
Will I Fail A Drug Test If I Take CBD?
The CBD isolate in our product contains CBD which is a LEGAL cannabinoid from hemp. It contains minuscule amounts (parts per billion) of THC that COULD show up in a drug screen. Glo cannot guarantee that you will or will not pass a drug screen due to the amount of variables. Drug screens vary and some can be more sensitive than others.
