Frequently Asked Questions
WHY PHARM ORGANICS?
Because we pay attention. To the industry, the details and to you. Today’s CBD marketplace is highly unregulated, and there are no set standards when it comes to efficacy. But at Pharm Organics, our transparent, meticulous approach bolsters trust and ensures our customers are receiving safe, high-quality, highly effective products.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It’s one of 113 substance known as “cannabinoids” extracted from the hemp or cannabis plant. It contains inherent anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiolytic properties that naturally relieve pain.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
When CBD enters the body, it interacts with certain receptors throughout your endocannabinoid system (ECS)—a complex biological system that runs throughout your brain and central nervous system. Your ECS is involved in managing various homeostatic processes in your body. More simply, your ECS helps keep your internal body balanced and functioning properly. The cannabinoid receptors in your ECS (called CB1 and CB2 receptors) bind with the cannabinoid receptors in CBD, upholding this balance. This regulation can positively influence memory, high cognition, emotion, motor coordination, anxiety and other responses to external stress.
WHAT ALL DOES CBD TREAT?
Filled with antioxidants and amino acids, CBD helps your body operate at peak performance. CBD can help alleviate a variety of ailments and conditions, including anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD, chronic pain, addiction relief, skin disorders, seizures, epilepsy, insomnia and more.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR CBD TO WORK?
Not all bodies are the same, so there is no hard-and-fast rate for CBD’s effects to set in. Many of our customers experience results nearly instantly when using CBD lotions and salves. CBD oils, softgels and drinks typically take between 15-30 minutes before effects kick in.
To receive maximum effect, our products should be taken on a consistent basis. We recommend taking your CBD dose every day for your first 30 days. If, after 30 days, you are still not experiencing results, you can return your product back to us for a full refund—no questions asked.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM TAKING CBD?
CBD is widely considered to be a safe alternative to prescription pills, and very few people experience side effects. However, some side effects may include fatigue, changes in appetite, and changes in weight. These side effects are more common if CBD is used in unnecessarily excessive doses.
WILL YOU GET HIGH FROM CBD?
No. CBD is different from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive chemical in the cannabis plant. While both CBD and THC have similar chemical makeups, THC introduces a psychoactive effect (or high) alongside its relief effects. Pharm Organics CBD products do not contain any psychoactive properties and are 100% THC-free.
HOW IS CBD DIFFERENT THAN THC?
See previous answer.
IS CBD LEGAL?
Yes. Pharm Organics uses hemp-derived CBD, which is legal in all 50 states. In 2018, the Agricultural Improvement Act, otherwise known as the 2018 Farm Bill, was passed, which removed hemp as a Schedule I substance and reclassified it as an “agricultural commodity.” In addition, this act also removed restrictions on the sale, transportation and possession of hemp-derived CBD products.
Certain restrictions still apply from state to state regarding marijuana-derived CBD.
WILL I FAIL A DRUG TEST BY USING CBD?
All Pharm Organic products are 100% THC-free. If you use our products, and are not using marijuana products, you will not fail a drug test. Drug tests to not test for CBD, so CBD cannot provide a false positive on a test designed to look for THC.
HOW CAN I TRUST THE QUALITY OF MY CBD?
Pharm Organics tests every production run for quality and potency. This ensures all cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients are consistent and pure. Every batch is extracted in our FDA-certified GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility and goes through a rigorous inspection process. When the batch passes, it receives a Certificate of Analysis and Quality Assurance, which we make available to you. We also verify our CBD through third-party lab testing to ensure you receive safe, high-quality and highly effective products. Those lab reports are available to you as well.
To date, not a single batch has failed to meet our stringent and unprecedented testing standards.
HOW IS PHARM ORGANICS CBD MANUFACTURED?
Pharm Organics produces phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil through two separate processes. The first utilizes supercritical CO2 to produce an extract rich in terpenes, CBD and other cannabinoids. This extract is further subjected to winterization in ethanol and solvent removal through vacuum distillation. After the chlorophyll, waxes and THC are removed, the resulting product is called PCR hemp oil, and contains 60-80% CBD, minor cannabinoids and terpenes.
The second solvent-extraction process utilizes ethanol for extraction, followed by the same purification processes as the first to remove chlorophyll, waxes and THC. The only difference between the two processes is in extraction technique. The first utilizes a CO2 solvent, while the second uses an ethanol one, respectively.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED DOSE FOR CBD?
Dosage varies from person to person. For your first few uses, we suggest starting small. If you feel the effects, great. If not, slowly work your way up. It will take a few trials to find your optimal dose. If you’d like to talk further, just Contact Us and we’ll give you some advice!
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY CBD?
For the best shelf life, store your CBD in a cool, dark area—like a medicine cabinet or bedside table. And do not let your CBD sit in direct sunlight. This will assure there is no loss in potency.
WHAT IS CBD’S SHELF LIFE?
If properly stored, Pharm Organics CBD should last about 18 months.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?
Once your order is placed, you can expect your product to arrive within 5-7 business days. We strive to process every order as quickly as possible with no delays. However, in rare circumstances interruptions can occur that are beyond our control. But we’ll always keep you in the loop.
WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?
We are 100% confident that our CBD products will exceed your expectations. But if for some reason they do not, you may return your product within 30 days of purchase and get a full refund. (Customer is responsible for return shipping, though.)
