FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is CBD?
CBD (AKA Cannabidiol) is one of over 100 unique chemical compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. New World CBD is vertically integrated and has control of our products from "Seed to Sale”. We do not outsource any of our materials that our customers use. We own the farm and grow our hemp in the USA. We also own the processing facility so when you buy New World CBD you know where it comes from.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the primary compounds produced by the plant genus, Cannabis (Hemp), which is believed to be one of the oldest domesticated agricultural crops and is arguably the most amazingly versatile plant in the world. Through selective breeding, Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years to produce many valuable commodities, including textiles, building materials, fuel, and food.
Scientific studies have identified 108 cannabinoids with different properties and herbal effects. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, renowned for its psychoactive and pain-killing qualities. But unknown to many, there are several other (non-hallucinogenic) cannabinoids which include CBC, CBD, CBG, CBN. Among these, CBD is the most studied and celebrated. THC is the only psychoactive/hallucinogenic cannabinoid; the term "marijuana" refers only to varieties of cannabis that contain substantial amounts of THC, while strains that are high in CBD with only trace amounts (0.3% or below) of THC are called Agricultural/Industrial Hemp. Why? Because while CBD has been shown to possibly have wonderful health benefits, it does not cause a psychotropic "high" or euphoria at all.
Instead, studies appear to indicate that CBD may quell anxiety and boost mood by promoting a sense of calmness and ease without distorting mental cognition or causing you to to feel "stoned" or out of the ordinary.
How Does CBD Work?
In the last twenty years, modern science has discovered a natural "receptor" phenomenon in the human body -- the Endo-Cannabinoid System -- which scientists say may play a crucial role regulating our physiology, mood and everyday experience. The discovery of these receptors in the brain and immune system that respond to stimuli from cannabis, and the subsequent identification of molecules in our own bodies that bind to these receptors (endocannabinoids) -- may have significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health and disease.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain and spinal cord and in certain peripheral tissues, while CB2 receptors are found primarily in the immune system.
Some scientists think CBD may be -- in addition to its binding with the CB1 receptors -- the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid that binds the receptors in your immune system, thus possibly providing a variety of health related benefits.
Will New World CBD oil make me feel "high"?
THC is the main psychoactive component derived from cannabis responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. Thus, it is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD or CBD oil extracted from industrial hemp plants, as they only have minuscule traces of THC.
Is CBD oil legal?
Under the 2014 US Farm Act (The Farm Act) CBD produced from Hemp is legal. Additionally, pursuant to sections 538 and 773 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (the Funding Act), federal funds cannot be used “to prohibit the transportation, processing, sale, or use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated in accordance with section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, within or outside the State in which the industrial hemp is grown or cultivated.” CBD from this “Farm Act” path is thus not only legal in the state in which the hemp is grown, but also at the federal level throughout the US.
Are there any hidden costs?
Absolutely not! You will NEVER be subscribed to any sort of membership or subscription service by putting in your information. We will always be 100% transparent about what you’re going to get when buying our products.
Are CBD products safe?
Clinical data suggests that CBD can be safely administered over a wide range of doses with no known fatal overdose levels. Our CBD is 100% made in America, tracked from seed to sale and our formulation experts utilize a state of the art extraction process to ensure you will always get the highest quality and purity.
Is your CBD oil synthetic or natural?
Synthetic CBD is created in a lab. Our CBD is derived from naturally harvested industrial hemp grown domestically in Oregon.
How much CBD oil should I take?
Cannabinoid dosages and duration of treatment depend largely on the condition. Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids are known to be non-toxic, with no known fatal overdose levels ever reported. However, it is wise to consult with a professional doctor if one is making dietary changes.
