With the growing popularity of hemp derived products like CBD and Delta 8; we get several questions about our products and CBD in general. However, we decided to come up with the top 5 CBD questions that we get asked often.
Commonly Asked Questions About CBD
Can CBD Get You High?
The most common question that we get in regards to CBD is does it get you high? In short, no. CBD doesn’t get you regardless of how much you take or what type of product you take. However, this doesn’t mean that all products are created equal. You want to make sure you purchase your CBD from a brand you recognize like Savage CBD.
This is to ensure you’re receiving quality with low amounts of CBD. A company that produces CBD should be able to offer their lab test results. Also, the lab tests are performed by a 3rd party that test for THC, heavy metals, and other chemicals.
CBD Is Not Marijuana
One thing to keep in mind is that CBD comes from hemp, not the Marijuana plant. The difference is that Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug and hemp is not. Therefore, your CBD comes from the hemp plant which has less than 0.03% THC; this is not enough THC to get you high.
What Does CBD Stand For?
The letters “CBD” are an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC, this cannabinoid is non psychoactive; in other words, it doesn’t get you high as stated before. You can find CBD in most stores, but CBD should not be mistaken for Hemp Seed Oil, which is a completely different product offering different benefits.

What's the difference between CBD and Full Spectrum CBD?
This is just CBD which is the purest form of cannabidiol. No additives, just pure CBD. Which is good for people who want to stay away from trace amounts of THC.
Full Spectrum CBD
This is all of the hemp plant's cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and rich nutrients. People who want the entire plant may choose the Full Spectrum option since it uses the entire plant.
How Do I Take CBD?
You have several options on how to take your CBD. However, there is no one way better than the other. It all comes down to your personal preferences. Here are the most popular ways to take CBD along with a brief explanation on how to take it:
By far these are one of our most popular products. This is because they are so versatile to use and user friendly. The 2 most popular ways to take our CBD Tinctures include sublingual, or by ingesting it.
The sublingual approach includes adding some of the CBD Oil under your tongue and letting it sit there for about 20 - 30 seconds. Once it’s been absorbed into your body you can spit it out or swallow it. Also, ingesting the CBD oil means you add the CBD into a drink or food recipe.
A CBD Topical is any form of CBD that goes on your skin. This can be in the form of a CBD Lotion, balms, or other types of creams. The best thing about taking your CBD topically is that you can target specific parts of your body with CBD.
This means if you want to add CBD to your hands or a specific part of your body only, a CBD Topical is the way to go. Usually you apply small amounts of CBD to the part of your body you want to target with CBD. The CBD will then be absorbed through your skin and make its way into your system.
Another very popular way of taking your CBD is by vaping it. There are several products available if you prefer this method which include: CBD Vape Juice, CBD Cartridges, and CBD Disposable Pens.
What is great about this method is the absorption rate is a lot quicker than ingesting or applying CBD topically. This is because the CBD enters your system a lot quicker through your lungs. You will need either a device to enjoy our CBD Vape products or you use a Disposable CBD Vape Pen.
How much CBD should I take?
You need some patience when starting out with CBD for the first time. Finding the right amount to take can take some time, but we recommend starting low and working up from there. Try to stick around 25mg your first time and wait 30 minutes to see how you enjoy it and work up as needed. We made a cheat sheet for 30mL bottles
CBD Vape Juice Cheat Sheet:
- 250 mg bottle = 16.6 mg per ml = 0.8 mg per drop
- 500 mg bottle = 33.3 mg per ml = 1.5 mg per drop
- 1000 mg bottle = 66.6 mg per ml = 3.0 mg per drop
- 2500 mg bottle = 83.3 mg per ml = 3.8 mg per drop
