Q: What is cbd?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of over 85 compounds found in Hemp, known as cannabinoids. CBD is extracted from specific varieties of cannabis. It is the second most abundant compound in cannabis, typically representing up to 40% of the total extracts. CBD is a compound that can be found in psychoactive cannabis (marijuana) and non-psychoactive cannabis (hemp). However, most leagal CBD extracts you will find on the market will be extracts of Hemp.

Q: Will I fail a drug test if I medicate with CBD-rich cannabis?
Yes, you may fail a drug test even if you experience no mood-altering affects from your CBD-rich medicine. Drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoid. If one medicates with CBD-rich cannabis or hemp that has a small amount of THC, the THC may register on the drug test. Best would be to use CBD Isolate with containing 0%THC. All of our products are made from Hemp containing only trace amounts of THC. The CBD Isolate contains no THC.
Q: What is the proper dosage of cbd?
-Begin with a low dose especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis.
-We recommend starting with a small milligram and use one drop three times per day for one to two weeks.
-Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose.
-Use the same dose and ratio for several days.
-Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount.Don’t overdo it. “Less is more” is often the case with cannabis therapeutics.
Q:CBD Isolate vs. CBD Full spectrum
What is the difference between CBD Isolate and CBD Full Spectrum? This is an excellent question.
-CBD Isolate is just that, isolated. It has only one molecular compound called Cannabidiol and the bottle contains the full milligram amount in pure CBD only. GLO CBD Isolate product has no odor and only a slight taste of coconut (very faint). The CBD Isolate is an alternative for people who may have jobs requiring a drug test, for people who do not want to taste the full plant profile, for pets, or for children.
-CBD Full Spectrum is a full plant profile oil. CBD Full Spectrum contains all Cannabiniods (CBD,CBG,CBN,CBA,THC), Terpenes (natural plant oils), flavors and scents. The synergistic effects of cannabinoids and terpenes provides the entourage effect, an enhance level of effects of the medicinal effects of the plant. GLO CBD Full Spectrum contains 80% CBD and 20% Cannabiniods, and Terpenes. This products is safe for pets and children as well, however it has has a very herbal flavor.

Q:How is your cbd processed without the use of harmful solvents?
GLO CBD or Cannabidiol comes from USDA organic hemp plants grown here in the USA. After the hemp has grown to maturity it is harvested and is ready for processing. The raw plant material is processed using CO2.
Carbon Dioxide (C02) is a unique molecule that can function as any state of matter— solid, liquid, or gas— depending on the pressure and temperature it is kept under. Because variables like pressure and temperature have to be kept very specific in a C02 extraction, this extraction method is usually done with a piece of equipment called a ‘closed-loop extractor’.
This machine has three chambers: the first chamber holds solid, pressurised C02 (commonly known as ‘dry ice’), the second chamber contains dry plant material and the third chamber separates the finished product.
When performing the extraction, the solid C02 from the first chamber is pumped into the second with the plant material. This second chamber is kept at a specific pressure and temperature which causes the C02 to behave more like a liquid (although it’s actually somewhere between a liquid and gas in this state, referred to as supercritical C02) so that it runs through the plant material and extracts chemicals and flavours, much like in the liquid solvent process. Then, the C02-cannabinoid mixture is pumped into a third chamber where it is kept at an even lower pressure and higher temperature so that the C02 gas rises to the top of the chamber while the oils containing chemicals and flavours from the plant material fall to the bottom to be collected for consumption.
There are many benefits of this method. It doesn’t require a long evaporation process like a liquid solvent extraction and there is minimal risk of contaminants in the finished product.
