frequently asked questions:

  1. What is CBD?  CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of the 100+ Cannabinoid compounds that make up the plant. It accounts for up to 40% of the plants extract making it one of the most recognized and most studied compound.
  2. What are the benefits of these products?  CBD carries high antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties and has shown great promise in its relief in conditions such as anxiety, pain, psoriasis, arthritis, acne, seizures, & even cancer. It also promotes bone health, reduces blood pressure & acts as a sleep aid. 
  3. Does it get you high? Nope! the compound CBD is non-psychoactive so it does not produce a "high" feeling. THC is the cannabinoid that is responsible for that.
  4. How much should I take? is there a limit? Dosage is up to your discretion. For our signature oils we always advise starting with one to two full droppers of oil (as needed) & increase the dosage depending on your desired result. There is no limit to your dosage. Everyones body chemistry is different so we encourage you to find your own unique dose. 
  5. How do I know if this will work for me? Depending on your need, your desired result may take anywhere from a few minutes, to a few hours, to even a week. Don't get discouraged! Your body takes time to heal and change its routines. Also, don't be afraid to up your dosage if you feel like it isn't effective enough. 
  6. Is it best used topically or orally? One of the beauties of our Signature Oils is that they can and should be used both topically and orally. We strongly suggest doing both for thorough healing and wellness! Usage of our other products vary.
  7. Is it safe during pregnancy? Always consult your doctor or physician before using CBD products. It's great topically for aches and pains in your feet and back, & orally for nausea & anxiety. Some studies show CBD is safe for pregnant woman in small doses, but we cannot confirm that.
  8. Is this safe for children? Always consult your doctor or physician before using CBD products. Flower Food is safe for children, however, we do recommend a smaller dose to start with. It can be used for epileptic seizures, sleep aid, growing pains, headaches, sunburns etc. 
  9. Does it show up on a drug test/blood work? We are currently doing our own field testing to be able to clearly and concisely answer this question. Unfortunately right now we cannot confirm.
  10. Is it safe to be used alongside prescription medications? Always consult with your physician when mixing or adding medications into your regimen. CBD is an all natural, plant based alternative to a lot of modern medicine. 
  11. Will this help with depression or anxiety? Yes & Yes! Studies show that CBD causes a reduction in blood flow to specific regions of the brain linked to anxiety, such as the hypothalamus. These regions typically become overactive in anxiety disorders, whereas CBD seems to quiet their activity. Also CBD seems to work to balance dysfunction in the endocannabinoid system (a group of molecules and receptors that occur naturally in the body) of people who are depressed. It has also been found to act on a serotonin receptor that influences symptoms of depression.
  12. Will this help with headaches and migraines? CBD has very strong anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. We encourage you take the oils orally and apply topically for the best results. We also have a CBD infused salve made specifically for migraines and aromatherapy. CBD that is applied topically to a painful area of the body has been shown to absorb into the blood stream quickly because it avoids being metabolized by the body first. By reducing inflammation peripherally, CBD is able to block pain signals from being sent to the brain.
  13. Is this good for my skin? What if I have eczema or psoriasis?  Due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant & immune system boosting properties, CBD is known to sooth & heal skin ailments such as acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and any allergic reactions. Treating troubled skin can feel like a battleground. There are a thousand things one can try, from over the counter creams and face washes, to prescription ointments and even pills. For some, there will be success with these methods – for others, however, the quest for clear and healthy skin can be ongoing and frustrating. Fortunately, for those who have exhausted all conventional methods or for those who desire a plant-based natural solution, our signature CBD oils are your skin care answer.
  14. Why does my Coco Loco look lumpy? Don't fear friends! Coconut oil naturally hardens under 76 degrees. Simply take the top off and microwave your tincture for 15 seconds, or close the lid tight and set your tincture in a cup of hot water for a minute. Your Coco Loco will re-liquify and be ready for you!  
  15. Does it expire? Recommended shelf life for our CBD products is 6 months .
