What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 113+ compounds found in hemp plants. It’s a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that has the ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).  Plant cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, they bind with the system which helps regulate certain vital functions of the body, including:
• Sleep
• Appetite
• Immune
• Pleasure
• Pain
• Inflammation
• And more!

What is Full spectrum CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD products contain CBD, THC, minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other natural hemp plant compounds. Full spectrum CBD products must remain below 0.3% THC to be legal.

What is THC Free or Broad spectrum CBD?
THC Free or Broad Spectrum CBD products contain CBD, minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other natural hemp plant compounds.  THC Free or Broad spectrum CBD products contain 0% THC.

Are Papa G’s products actually USDA organic?
Yes, they actually are! View our certificate here. Our USDA organic CBD flower and oils have been certified organic by Eco Certs. Our products meet a rigorous set of standards set by the USDA for pesticides, fertilizers, and much more. 

Why does Papa G’s only use the hemp flowers in its products?                                                                                                                                                                            CBD and the other Full Spectrum cannabinoids are produced in the flower of the hemp plant, not the stems, stalk, leaves, or other plant parts. That means the flowers of the hemp plant have been separated from the rest of the plant parts, instead of using the whole plant. The result is a higher quality Full Spectrum CBD extract that is free of unnecessary plant matter.

How do I know where Papa G’s Organic products come from?
Before purchasing CBD products from a company, look for their hemp farm on the company website, or ask for their hemp growing license. If they have photos and video of the farm on the website, or a hemp license from their state then they are probably a good resource if you are in search of a local hemp farmer. If you don’t find pictures of the hemp farm or a license, odds are that they don’t have one! Here at Papa G’s, we grow organic hemp plants for its flower. We then use the organic flowers to make our own organic extracts that get added into products.

Are Papa G’s Organic CBD products third party lab tested?
Absolutely! Papa G’s sends every single batch to be tested by a third party lab testing partner, Canna Labs. We never release a batch of CBD oil for sale online, or with our retail partners, until we know for sure that it is 100% free of pesticides, heavy metals, mycotoxins, and microbials, and that the product label is accurate as it relates to CBD content. View our certificate of analysis for each batch along side each product photo and description. This also includes our selection of CBD topicals and CBD oil for pets.

How Long Does It Take for CBD Oil to Work?
It takes a few days for CBD to work, and it’s not something that you’ll notice right away. Be mindful of any pain, anxiety, and changes in sleep patterns as you work through your first week. Keep journal entries to track sleep and progress, and the amount of CBD you’re taking. This will help you be aware of the effects of CBD on your body. Understand that health benefits from natural supplements like CBD edibles, CBD tincture and oils don’t happen overnight. It takes time for the human body to adjust after implementing several different changes into our lifestyle. It also depends on the amount of CBD you’re taking to really experience the true effects of hemp derived CBD products.

After One Month of CBD: How Will I Feel?
After a month of CBD usage, you’ll likely feel different. 18 But if you don’t believe us, try taking it for one month consistently, and then don’t take it for a week. Those bad feelings may return. That’s when you’ll know how CBD makes you feel, and you’ll be ready to order your CBD oil here. At Papa G’s Organic, we are passionate about producing our full spectrum products with only flower, USDA organic hemp extract for consuming CBD in several different effective methods. And because our third-party lab partner tests every batch, you’ll never need to worry about potentially negative side effects from any harmful contaminants.

What are the benefits of CBD oil?
CBD can have an immediate, noticeable effect but often the effects of CBD are not seen until a few weeks of consistent use. A person’s age, weight, metabolism, and genetics can affect how long it takes to feel the effects of CBD.

The worst a person might experience from too much CBD is feeling drowsy, having a stomach ache, or mild diarrhea symptoms.

Will CBD make me fail a drug test?
Yes, full spectrum CBD oil can cause you to test positive for THC. We believe that because hemp-derived cannabinoids are legal, including THC as long as it remains under 0.3 percent, that employees should no longer face discrimination from employers for testing positive for hemp-derived cannabinoids. However, in 2021, outdated beliefs about THC continue to influence workplace drug test policies. If you’re concerned about a drug test, get a doctor’s recommendation in writing, and get permission from your human resources department, also in writing.

Is CBD legal in the United States?
Yes. CBD was legalized as part of the 2018 Farm Bill passed by Congress and signed by the president. The Farm Bill removed hemp from the list of illegal drugs, so long as the THC level does not exceed 0.3%. All products sold by Papa G’s Organic have been third-party lab tested to ensure compliance with this law.
