Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the approximately 115 phytocannabinoids that naturally occur in hemp or cannabis plants. Research suggests that CBD is anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsive, sedative, and anti-nausea. It’s also a powerful antioxidant with neuroprotective properties.
Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds naturally found in the human body and cannabis plants. They interact with receptors of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the body to restore a normal, healthy balance.
CBD is not a psychoactive compound, so it will not get you high unless it contains THC. It is very unlikely that you will fail a drug test if you take a high-quality, THC-free or Non-Detect THC product.
Terpenes are the organic compounds responsible for providing the scent and flavor of the plant. They also provide therapeutic benefits and may promote relaxation, stress-relief, or focus.
The entourage effect refers to the unique interaction between compounds within the hemp plant that form a synergistic relationship. That means each compound modulates and/or benefits the other. It is a prime example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
At Foy, we believe this entourage effect is crucial for optimal benefit. That’s why our CBD products are crafted with broad spectrum hemp, utilizing every part of the plant, including phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and more without a detectable trace of THC.
Isolated CBD is pure CBD in its most basic form that does not contain any cannabinoids or terpenes.
Full spectrum CBD features the entire plant and all 480 phytocompounds including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids.
Broad spectrum CBD offers all of the benefits of full spectrum CBD without any detectable THC.
While CBD oil is a liquid concentrate of CBD, hemp oil is a food product that comes from pressed hemp seeds and contains no CBD. While hemp seed oil contains many benefits of its own, it does not contain the same level of compounds from the hemp plant like CBD oil does.
A tincture is a specific liquid solution CBD product that can be taken orally. They are formulated to host the benefits of CBD oil combined with other elements like carrier oils. To take a CBD tincture, you’ll need to place the dose under your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds so that it can be absorbed. The longer you hold the CBD tincture under your tongue, the better it will absorb.
Your endocannabinoid system helps regulate a number of bodily functions including your appetite, digestion, immune function, stress and mood, and sleep. It’s made of endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes. When CBD bonds with cannabinoid receptors, it improves their function and can help you improve your health and wellness.
We encourage everyone to do proper research when choosing CBD products. Look for a verified product that has been third-party lab tested for potency, purity, and pesticides. You should be able to find third-party lab testing information on the product’s website.
Foy uses a CO2 extraction process in which pressurized carbon dioxide pulls the desired phytochemicals from a plant. Our process is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and free of the harsh chemical solvents that are usually used to extract CBD oil from the plant. While it’s the most expensive plant extraction method in the world, it’s also the safest.
Yes, pure CBD without fillers can be beneficial for pets. Research is still underway to determine the potential benefits of CBD for animals, ranging from anxiety to arthritis relief. To ensure the best for your pets, we suggest consulting with your veterinarian.
CBD helps promote a state of balance known as homeostasis throughout the body. Optimal wellness is achieved when every bodily system operates as it should, which CBD can help accomplish. Everyone can benefit from a healthy balance, regardless of pre-existing conditions or lack thereof.
Federal regulations prevent us from making claims about whether or how CBD oil can help specific conditions. However, we encourage you to perform your own online research to learn more about CBD oil and its potential benefits.
If CBD products are derived from hemp and contain less than 0.3 THC (the chemical responsible for most of hemp’s psychological effects) they are completely legal as of December 20, 2018.
However, each state has varying laws on the restrictions placed on CBD. CBD is commercially available for purchase online without a medical license. Although, it should be noted that only CBD from authorized sources should be consumed.
While hemp and marijuana are variants of the cannabis plant, there are major differences between them. Hemp has a THC value of less than 0.3% while marijuana has a high concentration of THC and can be used recreationally for the purpose of getting “high.”
Research has shown that CBD offers a number of health benefits without making you feel “high.” It does not produce the psychological effects that you may notice with marijuana because of its low THC make-up (less than 0.3%).
Low doses of CBD are unlikely to interact with your other medications. However, since drug-herb interactions are always a possibility, it’s a good idea to consult your doctor or pharmacist before trying CBD.
Your body and mind are unique. So is your lifestyle. While a capsule may be a good option for your friend, an oil or cream may make more sense for you. We encourage you to conduct research and test different products to find which products are right for you.
If enough THC is present in the CBD oil that you consume, there is a chance that it will show up on a drug test. Although not often the case, there are some cases where consuming CBD can cause you to fail a drug test. This depends heavily on the product’s composition and quality and how much a person consumes. Our broad spectrum CBD products contain Non-Detectable traces of THC.
There is no ideal frequency or time of day to take CBD. Since body chemistry is unique from person to person, the best time to take CBD comes down to convenience. If CBD gives you energy, you may want to take it first thing in the morning. If it makes you feel relaxed, taking CBD at bedtime might be best.
It would be hard to overdose on CBD because you’d have to take far more than the average person needs. In fact, there has never been a known case of CBD overdose. Side effects of taking too much CBD are typically mild and include fatigue or drowsiness.
To consume our CBD tinctures, fill up the dropper and place the liquid under your tongue. Hold the liquid under your tongue for about 30 seconds and then swallow. Apply a CBD lotion on an area of discomfort or a common sore spot.
Your satisfaction is our priority. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your CBD products, simply return them within 30 days for a full refund of the purchase price.
There are a number of reasons Foy wellness products are unique. First and foremost, we source our raw hemp from our Pilot Research Farms in upstate New York whose sole purposes are to cultivate high quality hemp via true and tested cropping techniques.
Our farms are tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life, skyscrapers and rush hour. Situated amid soil-rich valleys, sheltering hills and clear rivers, these carefully managed facilities are uniquely suited for clean, natural growth.
Also, we only use the highest grade CO2 equipment available to extract the active CBD and test a sample from every batch at top laboratories to bring you the purest, highest quality products possible. Lastly, we are 100% organic and free of GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and chemicals. Our natural flavor CBD oil is even Kosher-certified.
Each and every product we sell has been third-party tested for optimal safety. You cannot overdose on our products. In the worst case scenario, you’ll experience feelings of exhaustion and over-relaxation. A review of 25 studies on the safety and efficacy of CBD did not identify any significant side effects across a variety of doses.
