Frequently asked questions
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is just one of many different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is a natural oil which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It is used by people all over the world within wellness and beauty applications.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all hemp plants, and they are responsible for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids (plant-based), while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids directly interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes balance, ie. homeostasis.
How Does CBD work?
Is your product safe?
There are no known incidences of illness caused by consumption of CBD oil. Also, all BROWN GIRL Jane products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee they are free of any potential contaminants.
What is CBD used for?
Many people use CBD to support the body’s natural systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some for specific purposes such as supporting a good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints.
Do your products contain THC?
No. All BROWN GIRL jane products show no detectable THC on their lab reports. We use patented technology to remove any residual THC found in our hemp extract.
What does Broad Spectrum mean?
The term broad spectrum refers to CBD oil products that contain a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds found in hemp. While many CBD oil products are made using CBD isolate, BROWN GIRL jane broad spectrum oils maintain concentrations of the beneficial compounds that are found in the original hemp plant. Our broad spectrum CBD oil products contain no detectable THC, as shown on our lab reports.
What are the benefits of taking broad spectrum CBD products?
The benefits of broad spectrum products are usually greater than the benefits provided by others, such as those containing just CBD isolate. This is due to what’s known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect occurs when compounds in the hemp plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, work together to produce even greater effects than just CBD alone. All BROWN GIRL Jane products contain broad spectrum CBD oil. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
What is a CBD tincture?
A CBD tincture is a preparation made from CBD extract. It is used orally (swallowed) and can also be used in cooking or baking. Our tinctures do not contain alcohol, although many traditional tinctures do.
What is the ideal serving size?
The ideal serving size of CBD for each person depends on a wide range of variables. It also depends on the product. Servings of 5 to 50 milligrams per day are commonly reported for health maintenance and minor issues.
How often can I take CBD?
CBD can be taken multiple times each day, or at particular times of day, depending on the reason it is being used.
How should I store my CBD bottles?
We highly recommend either storing them in a cool place. Always keep CBD products in airtight containers and store them away from direct sunlight and heat, which can degrade certain compounds in CBD oil.
Will CBD show up on a drug test?
Under normal circumstances, our products are not expected to produce a positive result for THC consumption through testing conducted using industry-standard sophisticated testing methods. BROWN GIRL jane can not, and does not represent or warrant as to the results that any individual may experience, and advises you to consider the risks of incorrect detection prior to use of this product.
Should I take CBD if I'm healthy?
Absolutely. Because of its ability to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is often used by those who don’t have any specific concerns.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
CBD vs. THC
CBD and your internal receptor system
CBD is one of many cannabinoids in hemp that has an array of effects on our body’s endocannabinoid system. We have receptors and compounds in our bodies that interact with the compounds that naturally occur in hemp. Many leading doctors, scientists and experts in the field believe that combining CBD with the many other naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in phytocannabinoid-rich hemp plants may offer a range of measurable health benefits never before seen in the pharmaceutical, food or dietary supplement industries.
What is the entourage effect?
Broad spectrum CBD oil, such as that used in BROWN GIRL Jane products, contains a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes as well as other beneficial compounds. Each of the compounds has particular effects on the human body. Because terpenes can affect how the body responds to cannabinoids, the combined effect is often greater than the sum of the individual effects. The overall effect produced is known as the entourage effect. Non-broad or full spectrum products do not have the benefit of the entourage effect and are therefore not recommended.
Where is your hemp grown?
The special strain of hemp used to produce BROWN GIRL Jane products is grown in Colorado and Kentucky.
Will CBD cause a high?
No! BROWN GIRL Jane CBD is non-intoxicating and will not cause any high.
