What are Cannabinoids?
There is close to 1250 unique chemical compounds identified in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavors and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids.
There are over 144 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis.
What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the primary cannabinoid in industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) In recent years there is increasing interest in the therapeutic potential of CBD, which causes no psychotropic effects, is not psychoactive (cannot get you “high”) and even in high doses does not cause relevant side-effects. Its chemical formula is C21H30O2.
What is CBD oil?
CBD hemp oil is extracted from the stalks and seeds of industrial hemp plants.
CBD oil is a cannabis oil that contains significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD). The supercritical CO2 extraction process also preserves all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients, and contains only trace amounts of THC (below 0.3%).
Are the CBD oil drops legal in Texas?
CBD oil drops are legal and you do not require a permit or recommendation from your doctor to buy CBD products. It can be purchased online and shipped to your home, anywhere in the USA.
Will I test positive if I use CBD oil drops?

I take 5 drops of PharmaHemp 1000mg CBD oil every day it has less than 0.2% THC and try my other products when I need a little extra relaxation. I have never failed a drug test in my 15 years in Oil and Gas industry.
The THC concentrations in hemp oil are nowhere near enough to have any effect on you: industrial hemp plants (Cannabis sativa L.) generally contain only a trace amounts of the THC that marijuana plants contain. THC is the cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests. These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complicated name of ‘11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH)’. If initial tests find that you have more than 50 Nanograms (ng) of these substances in your urine, a Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test is carried out to confirm the result. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and is not sensitive to other cannabinoids including CBD.
What is Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery, is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems and organs. Consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.In other words, it is a »command and control« set of biochemical communication regulatory mechanisms dealing with cannabinoid-like substances (endocannabinoids) produced naturally by the human body in general and the brain in particular, where receptors are concentrated in areas associated with thinking, memory, coordination, pleasure and time perception. The ECS is one of the more important biological control systems, which help regulate major bodily functions
Do I get high from CBD oil drops?
CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that you cannot get “high” or intoxicated by consuming CBD oil drops, as well as any other raw natural product from industrial hemp plants for that matter.
Our CBD products are all made from industrial hemp, which only contains trace amounts of THC (less than 0,3%), so there is no psychoactive effect from taking our products. The following products do not contain even trace amounts of THC in them, and are completely THC-free: CBD Aqua Drops, pure CBD, CBG crystals, CBD E-Liquids and Terpenes.
What is CO2 extraction?
CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) to extract phytochemicals (such as CBD, CBG, or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most expensive extraction method and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method
How do I know what dose of CBD I should take?
CBD is measured in milligrams for science purposes. A normal dosage of CBD intake is anywhere from 5MG all the up to 40MG. Research is showing about 5-10MG is a good intake of CBD to activate your CBD receptors each dosage. Understand that all of our products vary in the potency of CBD Milligrams (MG), but does not mean the highest strengths are the only one that will work for you. Everybody is different but we have heard the most positive feedback on our higher concentrations
