THM CBD FAQ

CBD oil has incredible health benefits for many! From ADHD, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, depression, epilepsy, hypertension, inflammation, pain, sleep… just to name a few! There is so much research out there supporting all the ways CBD oil can help support your health.

However, we are not doctors and we cannot tell you that CBD oil will help or cure anything for sure. We are all so different and will respond differently. We recommend you do personal research, consider speaking to an integrative medical professional, and make the best educated decision for yourself and that of your family.

A great place to start your research would be CBD Oil 101: What You Should Know.  This article is great because it contains lots of links to research articles and studies!

Question 1. What are the benefits of CBD?

Answer:  Current studies have shown that CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-depressant qualities. It is also used successfully as a seizure treatment, cancer fighter and tumor preventative, sleep aid, neuroprotectant, and cognitive enhancer. CBD also supports healthy heart function, vascular health and gastrointestinal health to name just a few. There is an extraordinarily vast body of scientific research on the broad therapeutic uses of cannabis and particularly of CBD and THC. More evidence exists than can be found on some of the most widely used therapies of conventional medicine.

Question 2. Why would Serene and Pearl attach themselves to CBD? Isn’t that like aligning with drugs?

Answer:  Not at all. Both CBD isolate and full spectrum hemp oils are derived from the industrial hemp plant. This is different from the marijuana plant although they are related cannabis plants. The marijuana plant makes people high from the super high concentrations of a compound called THC. You CANNOT get high from industrial hemp as it does not contain enough THC. I do hope you will listen to episodes 9697, and 119 of the THM Poddy, if you haven’t already, to understand this more fully. Pearl & Serene knew little about CBD a year or so ago and also wondered if it would make people high or stoned and we wanted no part of it if that was the case. Once we learned about the largest extra-cellular system in our body called the endocannabinoid system, we realized if it is not addressed, it will go into decline and then many things in the body become imbalanced including the immune system, sleep, inflammation, mood etc. Full spectrum hemp addresses this system and works on restoring it. So to be very clear… our Trim Healthy Hemp product cannot get you high but it can make you vastly healthier.

Question 3. Do you have a completely THC-free formula? Or does THC add some additional benefit? What is the difference between full-spectrum CBD and CBD-isolate?

Answer:  Let’s review what THC is again… it is the part of the cannabis plant that has the psychotropic element to it… it is what people think of when they think of a drug. When it comes to industrial hemp oils, there is a straight CBD isolate oil and a Full Spectrum CBD oil. Full Spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoids found in the plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. Each cannabinoid offers different benefits for a wide variety of ailments. Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), but in very low concentrations (up to 0.3%), resulting in no psychoactive stimulation. This part of the plant offers incredible immune healing and disease preventing benefits so we want it in there to heal and restore.

However, if you are looking for a THC-free hemp product, we now offer the Pure & Classic tincture as well our Heavy Hitter THC-free formula.

Question 4. Will CBD show up in drug tests?

Answer:  Only a metabolite produced from THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is tested for in a drug test. Whole-plant, or full-spectrum CBD oils do contain trace amounts of THC, but in very small amounts!  Much larger quantities would usually have to be consumed in order to register on drug tests. It is possible that taking CBD oil in a large dose may show up on a trace urinalysis, but is a 100% legal product and shouldn’t interfere with your job if you disclose it. It also should not be enough to trigger a positive in a blood test, depending on how frequently and how much you are taking.  

However, if you are looking for a THC-free hemp product, we now offer the Pure & Classic tincture as well our Heavy Hitter THC-free formula.

Question 5. What is the difference between CBD and Copaiba oil? And which is more effective?

Answer:  Boy, this is a doozy. While there are some great copaiba oils out there it is not the same thing as CBD or full spectrum hemp. At this stage, it appears that cannabidiol oil (from hemp) has much broader applications across a wide range of health issues. Plus, it’s almost always safe to use, even in high doses. Nobody denies that the beta-caryophyllene found in copaiba is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, but its overall capabilities right now pale in comparison to those of CBD oil. Some essential oil websites mistakenly refer to beta-caryophyllene as a cannabinoid, but it is actually a terpene. Terpenes are similar to cannabinoids in some regards, and they are now thought to have many medicinal properties in their own right. Some terpenes interact with our cannabinoid receptors. Beta-caryophyllene is one of the terpenes that stimulates the endocannabinoid system, and it’s also the reason many have drawn comparisons between copaiba and CBD oil. Both oils contain high levels of this same terpene, which research has demonstrated has potent anti-inflammatory action. Yet regarding CBD, copaiba is not really a competitor. It has its place in nature’s abundant pharmacy, but it’s definitely not “the new CBD oil,” and it shouldn’t be confused as such.

Question 6. Will it be legal for THM to sell it to all of the United States? Or are there legal (state) limitations?

Answer:  The 2018 Farm Bill, passed by Congress, removes all industrial hemp and CBD products from the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA). While states still have the right to restrict production and sales, it is now fully legal to purchase, possess, and consume in all 50 states.

Question 7. What makes the Trim Healthy Hemp Oil unique?

Answer: Our own extremely pure whole hemp tincture is being manufactured/ distilled/ extracted in our very own facility here in Tennessee. It is designed to support your sleep, hormones and emotions while reducing your pain and inflammation levels. In a small study it greatly helped a group of women with sleep, pain, mood, weight stalls, inflammation and a number of other issues.

Question 8. Are the Trim Healthy Hemp products safe for women who are trying to conceive, are currently pregnant, or breastfeeding?

Answer: Of course, we must advise that you do your own personal research and check with your healthcare provider or midwife if you have any concerns.

 

Using our hemp products while actively trying to get pregnant is up to individual discretion. We have had several mamas use Feminine Balance in particular right up until the time they get a positive pregnancy test then stop right afterward. Feminine Balance may help balance hormones to the point where pregnancy is more likely, but once you have the positive, we recommend stopping as some of the herbs used in our infusion are not recommended for pregnancy.

 

If you are currently expecting, and decide using CBD is a good fit for you during pregnancy,  you might consider using the Pure & Classic instead of any of the herbal-infused hemp products.

 

If you are a nursing mama, we recommend avoiding the Feminine Balance, but the Chillax, Pure & Classic, as well as the Heavy Hitter oils may be a better fit for the breastfeeding season.

Question 9. Will THM’s Feminine Balance CBD oil blend interfere with hormone replacement therapies or birth control pills?

Answer:  Our Feminine Balance Blend contains herbs which are very gentle and work to balance hormones for many women.  We do suggest speaking to your healthcare provider if you have any health concerns that are estrogen related just to be sure.  However, we have been encouraged to read studies that show CBD and whole hemp are very effective at fighting female cancers of all types. We recommend this article to get you started on your personal research.

Question 10. I am fighting an estrogen positive cancer; can I still take CBD oil?

Answer:  Full-spectrum CBD oil may be very helpful for women who are fighting an estrogen positive cancer as it is shown to reduce estrogen levels and block estrogen effects.  You may prefer and benefit most from one of our heavy hitter CBD oils instead of one of the herbal-infused hemp products. Here is a study that might be of interest to you – GreenBridge Medical Study.

Question 11. Will THM be supplying third party lab testing showing the purity of the Trim Healthy Hemp products?

Answer:  In our effort to provide the purest, most effective products on the market, we provide 3rd party testing results from industry leading experts.  You can find the most current COA (Certificate of Analysis) on all of our individual product pages.

Question 12: Can men use Feminine Balance CBD oil; or can women use the Masculine Prime?

Answer:  While it is unlikely to cause any harm, these formulas were specifically  formulated for the unique needs of women and men. We do not recommend men take the Feminine Balance or that women take the Masculine Prime.

Question 13: Which blends are recommended for children?

Answer:  While CBD oil is very safe for children, some of our blends are infused with hormone-balancing herbs, which we do not recommend for children.  The Chillax and Pure & Classic may be best suited for your children.

Question 14. Are any of the Trim Healthy Hemp products suitable for pets?

Answer:  Many dog owners use CBD oil to help treat and prevent disease.  We recommend checking with your pet’s Veterinarian before giving any of our hemp products to your animals.

Question 15. How much CBD oil should I take each day and how do I use it?

Answer:  Each of us responds uniquely to CBD oil. You will need to find your sweet spot. The bottles suggests using 1/2 – 1 dropper full once to twice a day by dropping the oil under your tongue and holding it there for 30 seconds. (You can start with less if you prefer.) Some people respond magnificently to taking the oil shortly before bed and have much deeper and longer sleep cycles. A few people find it stimulates them at night. If that occurs, you may want to try dosing during daylight or morning hours to make use of the wonderful energy surge.

Question 16: Will CBD oil interact with my medications or other supplements?

Answer:  CBD oil has incredible health benefits for many! There is so much research out there supporting all the ways CBD oil can help support your health.

However, we are not doctors and we cannot tell you that CBD oil will help or cure anything for sure and likewise we cannot tell you for sure if CBD will interact with your medication or other supplements.

We do recommend that you speak to a trusted healthcare professional if you have any concerns. One thing to note is that CBD and grapefruit share a similar enzyme which can affect how your body processes certain medications. If you have received specific instructions from a medical professional regarding grapefruit, you may want to treat any CBD products with the same caution. On the flip side, CBD can often make other drugs more effective or lessen the need for them. Anecdotally, many people have used CBD oil along with common medications such as those used to treat blood pressure with great results.
