CBD Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoids, which are naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis family of plants. CBD has become popular among people who include it in their daily routine and who often say they feel calmer, less stressed, and more energized than they used to. Unlike another well known cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD has no reported intoxicating effects, so it doesn’t “get you high”.
Although knowledge of CBD is relatively new, current research suggests that it may work by aiding your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which produces its own natural compounds. Researchers believe that these compounds are responsible for regulating your body’s homeostasis, which means they may help your system return from “irregular” states such as stress, insomnia, or irritation — and promote inner balance.
Products including CBD have become popular since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized the cultivation and use of hemp plants containing less than 0.3% THC. Today, it is enjoyed by many in the form of oils, lotions, edibles, and more.
CBD from CBD Lifestyle Labs is produced from 100% legal, organic hemp grown in the United States.
Hemp is a member of the cannabis family of plants, characterized by high cannabidiol (CBD) and ultra-low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content.
In addition to it being a rich source of CBD, hemp is celebrated by many as a sustainable crop, whose fibers have been used for hundreds of years to make paper, clothing, and more. Hemp seeds are also consumed as a nutritional source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, as well as plant-based protein.
At CBD Lifestyle Labs, we are proud to make products derived from 100% organic hemp grown in Kentucky and Colorado. By sourcing our products from these farms, we further our commitment to the environment by supporting sustainable agriculture and hemp cultivation.
Hemp is also a source of other cannabinoids like cannabigerol (CBG) and aromatic terpenes, which help make up full spectrum CBD products.
Yes—as long as it meets all legal specifications. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp must contain under 0.3% THC by dry weight to be federally legal. (This legislation has spurred the recent rise in awareness and popularity around CBD.)
CBD products produced from ultra-low THC hemp are fully legal nationwide and can be legally taken by anyone of any age. These laws apply equally in all states, regardless of marijuana legalization.
CBD oil that’s been produced from high-THC cannabis, however, remains a controlled substance at the federal level. CBD-infused foods may also be subject to additional rules and regulations.
All CBD Lifestyle Labs products are derived from hemp with ultra-low levels of THC and are fully legal in all 50 states.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is another cannabinoid, like CBD, derived from cannabis plants including fully legal hemp plants. CBG is called the “mother cannabinoid,” because it is the building block from which all other cannabinoids (including THC, CBD, CBC, etc.) are produced.
At CBD Lifestyle Labs we offer our customers CBG in our Blueberry CBG Oil.
CBD is a versatile substance that can be integrated into a variety of products. Our products accommodate a full range of ways to enjoy your CBD lifestyle, from the luxurious feelings of CBD bath bombs, to ultra-efficient CBD pills (softgels) and CBD suppositories. Many people discover their favorite method (or a new alternative way) to enjoy CBD in our specialty products.
The fastest and most effective way to take CBD oil is as a sublingual. Hold the oil under your tongue for 60 seconds before swallowing, to directly absorb the oil into your bloodstream. One of the main benefits of CBD oil drops is the ability to be taken this way.
You may also swallow CBD Oil drops, capsules, or gummies. Many people put CBD oil in smoothies, coffee, or even into foods or salad dressing. While it will take closer to 30 minutes to circulate through your body, if you don’t mind the wait, these methods provide more ways to enjoy your CBD lifestyle.

Variety is the spice of life, and we’re happy when our customers are happy. That’s why we offer many ways to enjoy your CBD lifestyle.
Consumers of CBD edibles report the same positive effects as they do with other CBD products. The only difference? Because edibles are processed by the digestive system, they may take a little longer to be absorbed into your body than CBD oil taken under the tongue. If you don’t mind the extra time, these are great options for customers who prefer a product they can swallow or chew.
CBD topicals are one of our favorite types of CBD products for many reasons. For one, you can apply them by feel. Simply spread a small amount of your CBD topical to any sore or irritated area. Wait a few minutes to see how you feel, then apply more if desired. Simple as that!
CBD topical products are not absorbed into your body’s circulatory system as quickly and directly as CBD oils are, yet many consumers enjoy using CBD massage oils, lotions, or sprays to target specific joints or areas of the skin.
The word “tincture” is often used to mean any product provided in a dropper bottle. However, in a more technical sense, the word refers to substances derived from an alcohol-based extraction. This is a common method of producing CBD products.
At CBD Lifestyle Labs, our products are alcohol-free. We produce our CBD using a safe CO2 extraction method, and then add it to an all-natural carrier oil, for your easy, safe consumption.
