Our Frequently Asked Questions About CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 113 different cannabinoids that make up the cannabis plant. Cannabis refers to both hemp and marijuana. All CBD products must legally use CBD extracted from hemp, not marijuana. CBD will not produce any sort of psychoactive “high”. Benefits of using CBD can include pain relief, anxiety and stress reduction, sleep aid, digestive health, and more.
CBD is used for the wellness benefits associated with cannabis, but without any of the psychoactive “high”. Some use CBD for pain and inflammation, others use it for anxiety and stress, others for sleep, others for digestion, and some even use it to help with weight loss. Your pets can also use CBD to benefit them in the same way it benefits you.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The EndoCannabinoid System (ECS) is a bodily system responsible for keeping all your physiological functions and responses in a balanced level of operation. This balanced state is known as homeostasis. The ECS plays a role in everything from appetite, to pain management, to level of focus, to mood, and more. It is made up of three parts: cannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and metabolic enzymes. Cannabinoids like CBD and THC are produced outside the body, but there are also cannabinoids produced inside the body (ex. 2-AG and AEA). Cannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors to provide your body with the benefits associated with cannabis use.
Is Thrive Flower CBD Legal to Purchase in All 50 states?
CBD was made federally legal via the Farm Bill (2018). Each state can decide if CBD is legal, but it is in all 50 states as long as the product contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. Some types of products (smokeables or edibles) are illegal in certain states.
Will I Get "High" from CBD?
CBD does not produce the metabolite that marijuana drug tests look for. This is only produced by the cannabinoid THC. There can be trace amounts of THC in a CBD product so check lab-tests to ensure the levels of THC are below the legal limit of 0.3%.
Will I Fail a Drug Test Using CBD?
Thrive Flower CBD is third-party laboratory tested and contains <0.3% THC. So no, you will not fail a drug test.
Will I Get Addicted to CBD?
CBD is completely non-addictive and healthy to use.
Where Do You Source Your CBD Oil From?

CBD products are entirely safe for pets and work with them the same way they do with you. Most common CBD products for pets are treats and oils. CBD can help you pet with anxiety from specific events like separation, car rides, vet visits, thunderstorms, and fireworks. It can also help your pet with overactivity, sleep, pain, and digestion.
How Much CBD Should I Start With?
Dosing with CBD is a bit different for everyone. Factors that affect how a dose of CBD will affect you include your metabolism, weight, consistency of use, and severity of affliction. For example, a heavier individual may require a larger dose to achieve the same benefits as their lighter counterparts. Same goes for those with more severe ailments. To find your perfect dose, we suggest starting with a low dose, about 10-20mg. Take note of how you feel over a 6-8 hour period. After that, if you feel like a higher dose would benefit you more, go for it. There is not such thing as an overdose of CBD, but at some point taking more just becomes redundant.
