CBD Comparison Chart by CO Hemp Extracts Finding The Right CBD For Your Needs
01. What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in cannabis. CBD is not impairing, meaning it does not cause a “high.” CBD is derived from hemp plants. Hemp is defined as any part of the cannabis sativa plant with no more than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the mind-altering substance in marijuana.

02. Is CBD legal in the USA?
In 2018, the U.S. Congress passed and signed into law the Agriculture Improvement Act. This law removed hemp from the list of illegal substances in the Controlled Substances Act, effectively legalizing CBD if it is derived from hemp.
03. How do I take/dose CBD Tincture?
CBD is marketed in many consumer products including foods, oils, lotions, capsules and topicals. Every CBD product sold by CO Hemp Extracts is labeled with clear instructions on how to take it and the appropriate dosage. You may also view these labels online in the photo gallery for each product.
04. Do I need a prescription?

No, you do not need a prescription for CBD products from CO Hemp Extracts.

05. Is there CBD for pets, like dogs and cats?

Yes, you can find our Pet CBD Tincture on our products page. Make sure to stay consistent with the daily dosing to see best results.

06. I'm pregnant, can I take CBD?

CBD use during pregnancy is not recommended. The potential health effects of using CBD products during pregnancy are currently unknown. In animals, high doses of CBD have caused negative effects on developing fetuses. It’s still unknown if CBD is passed to a baby through breast milk. For this reason people who are pregnant or breastfeeding are encouraged to avoid CBD. Keep CBD products away from children. The effects of CBD on children’s developing brains are also still unknown. If you use products that contain CBD or THC, keep them in childproof containers and out of the reach of children. For additional questions, contact your healthcare provider, your health department, or your local or regional poison control center at 1-800-222-1222, or 911 if it’s an emergency.
