Frequently Asked Questions
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring component of the cannabis plant. Rich in natural cannabinoids, CBD is legal, non-psychoactive and can be safely consumed as part of a daily diet.
According to the World Health Organization, preliminary evidence suggests that CBD may become a scientifically proven treatment with several medical applications. However, Present is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. We encourage you to speak with your physician before using this or any other supplemental dietary product.
There are two species of cannabis plant, hemp and marijuana. We source our CBD from organically grown industrial hemp, which is categorized as having less than 0.3% THC.
CBD is but one of more than 100 known phytocannabinoids within the hemp plant. Research suggests that it is the “entourage effect” of a variety of cannabinoids that can have the most potential health benefits. Full spectrum distillate CBD contains the highest number of these cannabidoids. They work synergistically and ensure that you are getting the most from your CBD. Broad spectrum CBD removes some of these cannabinoids, reducing the “entourage effect.” Isolate CBD removes all of these cannabinoids through a chemical process that prohibits it from ever being classified as organic.
Our hemp is grown in Colorado on our USDA Certified Organic family farm. Our farm is free of pesticides and the soil is free of any toxins. We encourage you to always know where your hemp is grown. Many companies source hemp from farms that are poisoned with heavy metals. The hemp absorbs those toxins and can then be found in your CBD products. We will always use Colorado grown hemp free of any toxins.
WAAYB Organics does all of the extraction for Present CBD using supercritical CO2 extraction machines. We will never purchase oil from another producer because we cannot then guarantee quality. We keep everything in-house.
Supercritical CO2 is a form of extraction that is used for many extracts. USP Grade Liquid CO2 is heated with increased pressure, which gives it the properties of a liquid and a gas. These properties help the CO2 filter through the hemp while extracting CBD oil. We use supercritical CO2 extraction because it is the only solvent-free method for collecting CBD.
There are many factors that could cause a positive drug test while taking any CBD product. Some tests do not differentiate between THC or CBD, so even if you take a 0% THC product you could still test positive. Also, individuals metabolize cannabinoids differently and that can cause a positive test result. Thirdly, all tests have a large variety of standards for what would cause a positive result. For these reasons we suggest that you do not take any CBD products if you may be drug tested.
