Product FAQ

Is CBD safe for children?

Research on the effects on children is still in progress. Therefore, we recommend discussing CBD hemp extract oil with your child’s pediatrician before adding CBD products to your child’s routine.

Can I take CBD when I’m pregnant or nursing?

We recommend consulting your physician before consuming CBD products.

Is there an expiration date on CBD oil?

Like any oil, light and humidity can cause rancidity or spoilage. Gold Leaf Collection CBD hemp oil extract should be stored as recommended and used within its suggested expiration date of 18 months from the manufacture date.

Will Gold Leaf Collection products show up on a drug test?

Gold Leaf Collection zero THC CBD products will not trigger a positive result on a drug test. These products are; Relief Stick, Lotions, Green Apple Gummies, Strawberry Lemonade Gummies, Mint 1000mg Tincture, and Orange Awakening 500mg Tincture.  Our organically grown hemp that has not been processed may contain up to the legal Federal limit of .3% THC. This would be our hemp flower and our pre-rolled hemp flower may appear on a drug test. Regardless, Lake Country Growers suggests consulting with your physician prior to taking any hemp-related products.

Is CBD addictive?

CBD is non-addictive and generally safe for everyday use.

What is hemp oil, and is it different from CBD?

Both are made from the same plant, cannabis, but hemp oil is cold-pressed from hemp seeds. It contains very little CBD, but it’s a great source of antioxidants and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. CBD oil or hemp extract oil is made from the entire hemp plant including the flowers, leaves, and stem and contains rich amounts of CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids.

What are cannabinoids and cannabidiol (CBD), and what do they do?

Hemp is a super plant that produces many different compounds.  These compounds can be found in other plant species, but more than sixty of them are specific to the cannabis plant. Scientists call these special compounds “cannabinoids.” Cannabinoids found in hemp are derived from the aerial parts of the plant. A particular cannabinoid called cannabidiol (CBD) appears to offer many medicinal and therapeutic benefits and is poised to change medicine as we know it today.

How do Gold Leaf Collections broad spectrum products become Zero-THC?

This is a great question and the answer begins in our hemp itself. Our unique plant genetics naturally contain 15-18% CBD and < 0.3% THC. We grow our plants using time honored farming practices which means no chemicals, no pesticides, no fungicides, and no herbicides. We feed our plants with a healthy compost tea. Once our hemp has been harvested, we employ a proprietary extraction and purification process which removes all the unwanted materials that are non-medicinal in nature. This includes waxes, chlorophyll, and pigments. It also allows us to completely and safely remove the < 0.3% THC. Because our process is so selective, the result is a very enriched, CBD that is virtually free of solvents and heavy metals. What’s left is a chemical compound that is ideal for anyone who wants the therapeutic benefits of CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC without the psychoactive effects of THC (for zero THC products).

How much do I take?

For people seeking a more balanced lifestyle and wanting to support their endocannabinoid system. We recommend starting with 10-25mg a day. For those who are suffering from more severe ailments, they may require a higher dosage to get desired results. It is important to stick to “start low and go slow” when you first start taking CBD products. We recommend adjusting your dose after using the products for 3-5 days. Since consistency is key when it comes to harnessing the power of phytocannabinoids, you should take the same amount of CBD daily at the same time each day to achieve your desired results.

How should I store my products?

CBD hemp extract oil products should always be stored properly to help maintain their freshness and improve their shelf life. An opened CBD hemp extract oil product will typically maintain its effectiveness for about 6 months. To store properly, we advise storing them in a dark cool place.

Can you take too much CBD oil? Are there any side effects to taking CBD oil?

Effective serving sizes will vary from person to person. It is important to stick to “start low and go slow” when you first start taking CBD products. We recommend adjusting your dose after using the products for 3-5 days. Take note of how your body feels. CBD has no known severe side effects, but mild side effects could include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dry mouth, and diarrhea. If you experience any side effects, we advise decreasing the amount of CBD you’re taking in a single serving. If you experience ongoing side effects, please discontinue use and consult your physician.
