CBD FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions About Cannabidiol


Crescent Canna is committed to providing our customers with the most fulfilling CBD experience possible by offering high-quality products and helpful guidance. What is CBD and how can it benefit you and your loved ones? Here are answers to the most common questions we get about CBD.

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound that comes from the marijuana plant or its close relative, hemp. A growing body of research suggests that CBD provides an array of health benefits. It is safe, nonaddictive, and nonpsychoactive.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana both belong to the genus Cannabis. The main difference is that marijuana is high in THC content and is federally illegal, whereas hemp is low in THC content (it must contain less than 0.3% THC) and is therefore federally legal. Unlike marijuana, which can cause a high, the very low THC content of hemp means that it is nonpsychoactive.

Are CBD oil and hempseed oil the same thing?

No. Hempseed oil and CBD oil derived from hemp are not the same thing. Hempseed oil contains little or no CBD: trace amounts of less than 25 parts per million. Be careful about purchasing “hemp oil” products from online sources like Amazon. Many have product descriptions that mislead you into thinking you are buying legitimate CBD products.

What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is a pure, crystalline powder that should contain a concentration of more than 99% CBD. All plant matter — oils, waxes, terpenes, and other compounds — is removed during the purification process.

The purity of Crescent Canna’s CBD Isolate Powder gives our products the highest possible concentration of CBD. It has zero THC, and it is also free of pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and other toxins. You can see our full-panel certificates of analysis (COAs) here.

What is CBD used for?

CBD users report benefits that range from better mental wellness and healthier sleep cycles to reduced pain and inflammation. As more research is done on CBD, more of its benefits have been confirmed. In fact, in 2018 the Food and Drug Administration issued its first approval of a CBD drug in the United States, as a treatment for two seizure disorders.

Is CBD legal?
Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD is federally legal in the United States as long as it is derived from hemp rather than marijuana and contains no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. All Crescent Canna products contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC and are fully legal and compliant.
Is CBD safe?

CBD is generally considered safe to use. It is nonaddictive, nontoxic, and nonintoxicating. But if you have a medical condition or are taking medication, you should consult with your doctor before taking it. Also, make sure that the CBD you take is pure. All Crescent Canna products are lab-tested to ensure that they are free of heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides, residual solvents, and other toxins. So our customers always get a high-quality, safe, and pure product.

Does CBD have any side effects?

CBD is generally considered safe, nonaddictive, and nontoxic. It has no proven adverse side effects. If you have a medical condition or are taking medication, please consult with your doctor before taking it.

Will I fail a drug test after taking CBD?

No. You will not fail a standard drug test after taking a CBD product that is pure and THC-free. As long as the CBD product that you are using is hemp-derived and is verifiably free of THC, it is legal and won’t be detected in a standard drug test. Make sure to avoid full-spectrum CBD products if you expect to take a drug test, since those products may contain detectable levels of THC.

How should I take CBD?
Crescent Canna products include CBD tinctures, topicals, isolate, and hemp flower. Which form is best for you depends in part on why you’re taking CBD. See this blog post on the right method of taking CBD for you, or contact our support team to ask which method you should try.
How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?
It depends on how much CBD you use and whether you take it topically, orally, sublingually, or by inhaling. Each method affects how quickly CBD enters the bloodstream to be distributed throughout the endocannabinoid system.

The type and quality of CBD also matter, as does your weight, body composition, and metabolism. Below are estimates of how long it should take to feel the effects of CBD given your method of consumption.

METHOD OF CONSUMPTION TIME IT TAKES TO FEEL
Topically Within 5 minutes
Orally 30 minutes to 2 hours
Sublingually Within 15 minutes
Inhalation 5 minutes to 15 minutes
Will CBD interact with my other medications?

Virtually every substance, including CBD, will interact with other substances. Although a growing body of research indicates that it’s safe to use, some evidence suggests that CBD may affect how other substances are broken down by your body. Please consult with your doctor if you have a medical condition or are taking any medications before taking CBD.

How does Crescent Canna test its products?
We are committed to sharing what many other brands keep under wraps. Information about all our ingredients, as well as third-party test results for all our products, is freely available. We test our products at independent ISO 17025-accredited laboratories, which complete a full panel of testing that includes our cannabinoid profile and microbial tests for heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides, residual solvents, and other possible contaminants.

Why is CBD so popular?

CBD has become enormously popular because of its potential to help improve a variety of medical conditions and promote wellness. It also has an exceptional safety profile and no known adverse side effects.

Will I get high from using CBD?

No. CBD does not have psychoactive properties and will not cause a high. The high associated with cannabis is induced by THC, not CBD. As long as the CBD product you are using is THC-free, it will not cause a high.

How should I store CBD products?

Store your CBD products at room temperature and away from direct light. Spaces like pantries and medicine cabinets are great for storing CBD. Do not refrigerate or freeze CBD products or expose them to direct heat or light.

How much CBD should I take?

How much CBD you should take depends on your weight, body composition, and metabolism, and your reason for taking it. For guidance, see this article on choosing the right CBD oil strength for you. Our products also come with easy-to-understand dosing information and, for our CBD Drops, droppers with clear markings starting at .25-1 mL.

What are the benefits of CBD?

There is a growing body of research being conducted on the medicinal benefits of CBD. Existing studies and countless testimonials suggest that CBD can help reduce stress, relieve aches and pains, promote healthy sleep cycles, and more.

Is CBD safe for animals?
Yes. CBD is safe for animals. Research indicates that it helps soothe their aches, pains, and anxiety. We even offer specially crafted CBD Pet Products at Crescent Canna. For smaller pets, we have 400 mg CBD Pet Drops. For larger pets, we have 800 mg CBD Pet Drops in peanut butter or bacon flavors. You can also try our almond-butter CBD Pet Treats for pets of all sizes.
Can I give my pet the same CBD oil that I use?
It’s totally fine to give your pet the same CBD oil that you use yourself, as long as that CBD oil is THC-free. The benefit of using our Pet CBD Oil is that it’s made from the same high-quality ingredients, but with all-natural flavors your pet will love, like peanut butter and bacon.
Are Crescent Canna products available wholesale?
Yes. We offer high-quality CBD products at industry-leading margins to our retail and distribution partners. Purchase our CBD Isolate wholesale to obtain a high-quality, cost-efficient, and versatile product that can be used in tinctures, creams, and many other products.

What potencies of CBD oil are available?

Crescent Canna offers a wide range of CBD oil potencies, starting at 500 milligrams of CBD oil per 30-milliliter bottle up to 9,000 milligrams per 30-milliliter bottle, the strongest CBD oil on the market. We offer:

What is the strongest CBD product you offer?

Our strongest CBD product is not only the most potent CBD oil that we carry ourselves; it is the most potent CBD oil in the world. Our 9,000 mg Max Strength CBD Drops packs 300 milligrams of CBD into our one-milliliter dropper.

Do CBD products contain THC?
Some full-spectrum CBD products do contain THC. Crescent Canna mostly carries CBD isolate-based products that contain zero THC. Our CBD Drops and topicals are made from pure CBD isolate, which means that they have no THC and no psychoactive effects and that they will not show up on a drug test. However, our full-spectrum products, like our Hemp Flower and Delta-8 THC products do contain THC. We specify in each product description whether the product contains THC or is THC-free.
Can I use more than one CBD product at a time?
Yes. Many of our customers report that our products complement each other well when addressing specific problems. They find it helpful to use CBD Drops or CBD Gummies as part of their daily routine while using a topical product like our CBD Freeze Roller or CBD Recovery Cream throughout the day for targeted relief. We make this one-two punch even more convenient by providing free CBD Gummies with our high-potency topicals.
