REDEEM CBD OIL
How do I know that Redeem CBD is safe?
The World Health Organization released a report in 2018 stating that CBD is generally well tolerated, has a good safety profile, and has had no recorded public health-related problems to date.
Which spray tincture strength is right for me?
At this time, Redeem offers three different concentrations of CBD oil: 250 mg, 750 mg, and 1500 mg of CBD per 1 ounce bottle. To make a choice between these options, it is best to know how much CBD you plan on consuming each day. Our customers tend to take vastly different amounts depending on what they are using their CBD oil for. For those who don't know where to start, our team has created a Dosage Tracker with tools and information to help you figure out your custom dose. Within the Dosage Tracker there is a tool we coined the "Milligram Grid." This chart clearly lays out how long each bottle will last based on your dose and how much oil you consume. Using these tools, we think you will be better able to choose which spray tincture strength would work best for you.
Would your CBD oil give me a "high?"
Answer Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive constituent found in the hemp plant, meaning that it doesn't have an intoxicating effect. THC is the compound that does elicit a high. Our oils do contain trace amounts of THC that are below the legal limit; this is intentional, as THC adds to the synergy of the "Entourage Effect". But, simply put, our oils don't contain levels of THC that would allow you to get high.
Is there THC in your products?
Our CBD oils are "hemp-derived", which means the cannabis plants that we use contain less than 0.3% THC (the federal limit). Even still, trace amounts of THC do end up in our CBD oil. And that's a good thing! THC is an additional cannabinoid that lends itself to the "Entourage Effect", a scientific phenomenon where cannabinoids and terpenes work in synergy to achieve a therapeutic advantage. So while you won't be getting high from our CBD, you will be getting the most robust and potent CBD available.
What does "Optimal Spectrum™" mean?
When it comes to getting a robust hemp extract (rich in cannabinoids and terpenes), "Full Spectrum" products are widely considered the premier option. This is because "Full Spectrum" solutions contain all of the natural components of the cannabis plant. While this sounds nice, cannabinoid and terpene levels vary from plant to plant. This means that the concentrations in your CBD oil will vary, too. Optimal Spectrum™ solutions solve this problem. Each batch of Redeem CBD oil goes through a systematic balancing process. First, our whole-plant extract gets analyzed for concentration levels. Then, if the results find any component to be lacking, we'll add it to the solution in order to achieve our set thresholds. The big takeaway is this: Optimal Spectrum™ products build upon the benefits of a Full Spectrum solution by guaranteeing that the oil will not only be robust, but will also have an unparalleled consistency.

Will CBD interact with other drugs?
Potentially. CBD interacts with enzymes in your body, which are the bodies mechanism for metabolizing drugs. Depending on the drug, CBD can inhibit or enhance the metabolic breakdown of the medication, which has a direct impact on the effectiveness of the drug. This has been most often observed in cases where the CBD doses are far beyond what you'd receive from our product (i.e. high doses of CBD isolate), but we recommend consulting your physician if you are on other medications prior to taking any amount of CBD oil.
Will CBD oil cause a failed drug test?
While failing a drug test because of CBD is quite unlikely, it is possible. Standard drug tests are usually checking for THC and its metabolites. As our hemp contains <0.3% THC, there is very little THC in our oils (your Certificate of Analysis will tell you exactly how much). However, if you need to be certain that you will not fail a drug test, refrain from consuming any cannabis products. Should you fail a test from taking CBD, a blood analysis can isolate cannabinoid levels, proving that THC was not the cause of the failed test. To learn more, we recommend reading this article from the official US Drug Test Centers website.
Is CBD legal?
Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD has been made legal on a federal level. This bill removed industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances on the basis that the plant contains <0.3% THC. Marijuna-derived CBD remains illegal on the federal level. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) released a directive in 2018 stating: "Products and materials that are made from the cannabis plant and which fall outside the [Controlled Substance Act] definition of marijuana are not controlled under the CSA. Such products may accordingly be sold and otherwise distributed throughout the United States without restriction under the CSA or its implementing regulations.”
How much CBD should I take?
There are many factors at play with this FAQ to include body type, metabolism, condition and symptoms, etc. Thus, there is no textbook answer for how much CBD someone should take. For this reason, we have created a tool to help you figure out your custom dose— the Dosage Tracker. It provides a recommended starting dose, some tips related to dosing, and materials for tracking your intake. And, as always, consult your physician for a professional opinion. An important fact to remember: More CBD is not always better. CBD is a biphasic substance, meaning that different concentrations will result in different effects. For example, lower levels tend to stimulate while higher doses tend to sedate. For this reason, increasing a dose doesn't necessarily translate to improved results.
What are the health benefits of taking CBD?
Federal regulations do not currently allow us to make claims regarding the symptoms or conditions that our product may treat. Thus, we can only recommend our products for general health and wellness. However, an incredible amount of research is currently being conducted on the potential health benefits of CBD. The National Institute of Health is currently tracking over 600 clinical studies investigating the potential health benefits of CBD.
What is CBD?
We like to think of CBD as a viable alternative to harmful and addictive pharmaceuticals. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring organic compound that can be extracted from the cannabis plant. When introduced to the bloodstream, it serves as a catalyst for major biological functions as it interacts with receptors located throughout your body responsible for regulation. For a more comprehensive look into the potential benefits of CBD, check out our article entitled “Is CBD Right for Me?”
How does CBD work?
A discovery in 1992 found that your body contains an expansive network of receptors called the "Endocannabinoid System". These receptors are located on the surface of virtually every type of cell system in your body. CBD interacts with these receptors, both directly and indirectly, to improve their ability to regulate some of the most vital functions of the human body and maintain your body in a state of homeostasis.
What's the difference between cannabis, marijuana, and hemp?
Many people are unfamiliar with the distinctions between these three related terms. So let's break them down. Taking you all the way back to middle-school biology class, the term "cannabis" is the "genus" of a group of related plants— including both hemp and marijuana. Using the word cannabis is like calling your pet a "dog" instead of a "golden retriever". That makes "hemp" and "marijuana" the "species" of the cannabis genus. The distinction between these two is largely based on the cannabinoid distribution: hemp has a high CBD, low THC ratio while marijuana is high THC, low CBD. Hemp containing such low THC levels (<0.3%) is what allows it to be legally sold in the U.S.
What is the "Entourage Effect"?
The "Entourage Effect" is a term used to describe the improved synergy that occurs when a broad range of cannabinoids and terpenes are introduced to the body as opposed to just a single compound (i.e. CBD isolate). This effect is what drives the science behind our "Optimal Spectrum" solutions. Rather than simply accepting the variance that occurs from plant to plant, Redeem CBD oils undergo a meticulous balancing process to ensure sufficient levels of cannabinoids and terpenes are present in each batch. This balancing act ensures that your oil has the robust variety of compounds needed to achieve the Entourage Effect. For a highly technical review of the Entourage Effect, we recommend reading Dr. Ethan Russo's journal article on the Entourage Effect entitled "Taming THC."
What are cannabinoids and terpenes?
Cannabinoids are naturally-occurring chemical compounds and include the likes of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC. Some are created by your body ("endo"-cannabinoids) while others are created by plants like cannabis ("phyto"-canabinoids). Both interact with receptors found on cells throughout your body in locations ranging from the brain down to your gut. These interactions can help with the regulation of other organic chemicals (i.e. seratonin, dopamine) and generally help to promote balance throughout the major systems in your body. Terpenes are essential oils contained within the same glands as the cannabinoids. While known for their fragrance, terpenes also have a tremendous therapeutic effect. For example, Pinene is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which lends to pain relief. Limonene tends to incite an uplifted feeling, while also stimulating the immune system and protecting the G.I. tract. For a closer look at terpene profiles and their therapeutic benefits, check out this article.
