How does CBD work / What is it?

What is it?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 120 naturally occurring compounds called “cannabinoids” that are within the hemp plant.

how do I take it?

Oral oils are designed to be taken sublingually by placing the desired amount of oil under the tongue and holding it there for at least one minute. This is the preferred route of absorption as the active ingredient enters the bloodstream the fastest with this method. Other ways to use it include topically in a salve or roll-on, as an edible gummy, or in a relaxing Be at Ease Bath Bomb.

How does it work?

CBD and other cannabinoids together are becoming more recognized as natural options for people who struggle with: pain, aches, and inflammation; stress anxiety and difficulty focusing; and sleep problems.

How much should I take?

This can depend on the ML bottle you are using, as the higher amounts (1000) have more concentration of CBD product than 250/500/750 levels. Many customers start with half a dropper once or twice a day and adjust accordingly from there based on their needs. Follow the instructions on the label.

How CBD aids in pain, stress, and sleep

People commonly ask how to use CBD to relieve pain, sleep better, and feel calmer and focused. Here are common uses.

For pain, aches, and inflammation

  • Pain, aches, and inflammation may subside with a daily CBD oil regimen, as cannabinoids work from the inside out as natural anti-inflammatories. Some people find a twice-a-day routine (morning and bedtime) works best, others just once a day.
  • Many people enjoy applying a highly concentrated salve directly to the skin to provide relief in areas that cause pain. This can be helpful for people recovering from injury and surgeries.
  • CBD Be at Ease bombs also help to soothe sore muscles and promote muscle recovery.

For stress relief and improved focus

  • Many people take oil daily or at the onset of a stressful situation. Some people feel themselves rising in tension throughout the day and find it useful to use the oil mid-day as a way to feel calmer. For those who feel chronic stress or tension, a daily routine of CBD oil in the morning or twice a day can be a helpful preventative measure.

For sleep

  • Studies show that taking CBD oil sublingually (orally) before bedtime can help with sleep. Some people prefer natural hemp-based CBD oil as opposed to over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids that can cause lingering drowsiness the next day and other side effects.
  • A Be at Ease CBD bath bomb in the evening can also soothe the body and the mind before bed.
  • Our CBD roll-ons are also great as a part of a calming bedtime routine for a deeper, more restful sleep. Roll-on oils can be applied to pulse points on the front and back of the neck, wrists, chest and temples.

Will CBD get you high?

The short answer: No. Hemp based CBD products are derived from hemp plants which produce higher amounts of CBD and very low in THC.  While a hemp plant and marijuana plant come from the same family of plants, they are different. Hemp plants producer higher CBD where marijuana plants produce higher THC (what causes the “high” feeling).

Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains 0.3 percent or less THC, while marijuana is a cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC. CBD can be derived from both hemp and marijuana plants.

Consuming or using CBD alone will not cause the “high” associated with THC, because hemp plants have high CBD but low levels of THC. In fact in order for growers (like us) to turn our hemp plants into CBD products, it must pass a test showing that the THC is below .3%.

When people think of “getting high,” they are often thinking of the effects of a marijuana plant which has much higher levels of THC, however, those levels of THC are not present in hemp-based CBD products like what we offer.

While you will likely experience improved relaxation, focused or relief of aches and pains, using a hemp-based CBD product does not produce the same feeling of being “high” that other high-THC products can produce.

Can CBD use cause you to fail a drug test?

The short answer is that using CBD might show up on a drug test.

Hemp-based CBD produces low levels of THC. Plants that are grown for CBD use have to pass state testing and remain at lower levels of THC in order to be approved for harvesting and turning those plants into consumable CBD products.

Hemp plants have naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids and THC present at low levels.

As hemp growers we are licensed, and our hemp is tested prior to harvest as well as our CBD oils are third-party tested prior to offering them for sale. This is to ensure that our oils remain under the federal legal limit of .3% THC. At this low level THC does not produce a psychoactive effect.

Certain forms of CBD such as salves and Be at Ease Bath bombs are considered topical products that provide on site pain relief without entering the bloodstream. The risk of a positive drug test from topical products is much lower however Soul Seed CBD does not guarantee whether or not use of such products could appear on a drug test. It’s recommended to do research and talk with your medical professional.


Is it addictive?

No. According to this 2020 article from Medical News Today, CBD by itself does not appear to be addictive. Research into the long-term effects of its usage is still in the early stages.

Can CBD affect or interact with other medications?

Research shows that some medications should not be used with CBD products. It’s best to check with your healthcare provider.
