House of Wise FAQs

The Basics

 

What is CBD? 

CBD (aka cannabidiol) is a chemical compound extracted from the cannabis plant. CBD is just one of cannabis’s 100+ naturally occurring cannabinoids. HOW uses full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD.

Learn more about CBD properties in our post What Is CBD?


How does CBD Work?

It’s not magic; it’s biology. Your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is made up of cell receptors and neurotransmitters concentrated in your brain and nervous system. As you can imagine, these areas have a big impact on your biological response to pain, stress, sleep, fertility, and more. CBD interacts naturally with these receptors, helping our ECS achieve balance.

Is CBD proven to be effective?

CBD is growing in popularity as many users claim CBD promotes feelings of calm, relief, and more. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is starting to spend more time proving its efficacy, most recently with the approval of Epidiolex, a CBD oral solution for the treatment of seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, in patients 2 years of age and older. 

Read what Wise Women have said about how they feel after taking CBD.


Are CBD and THC the same thing?

No, CBD and THC are different. THC creates brain-altering effects that CBD doesn’t (aka the high). Marijuana has high amounts of THC (5%-35%), making it a psychoactive drug. Hemp has very little THC (<0.3%), which means it is nonpsychoactive. HOW uses full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD. 

Learn more about CBD vs. THC in our post What Is CBD?


How much THC is in HOW CBD oils?

HOW CBD products (drops and gummies) contain THC levels of 0.3% or less. This is not enough to get you high. 

Meet the HOW products and the ingredients we use.


Can you get high from CBD?

Hemp-derived CBD does not produce a high. House of Wise uses only hemp-derived CBD extract that contains <0.3% THC. CBD is not marijuana.

Are there any side effects to CBD?

As with any supplement, vitamin, or substance, some people may have a different experience than their friends. CBD is generally safe when used in the appropriate dosage. Possible minor side effects that some people have experienced include fatigue, diarrhea, and appetite or weight change. 

If you’re taking medications, discuss with your doctor before using CBD, as interactions may occur.

Usage & Dosage

What’s the best way to take CBD?

HOW drops and gummies are taken orally (aka by mouth.

Check the recommended dosage on your product label (HOW dosage is 1 gummy or 1 ml), then take half if it’s your first time. See how you feel, waiting about an hour. Work your way up to a stronger dose as needed.


Read more about common ways to take CBD oil or about dosing in our dosage guide.


When do you use gummies vs. drops?

It all comes down to preference. There are many forms of CBD on the market, including drops and edibles like gummies. CBD gummies can be an easy way to ingest CBD discreetly. Whichever method or product you choose, read dosage instructions to ensure efficacy and safety.

 

Are gummies and drops the same dosing?

Dosing is a very important part of using anything in the cannabis space. Just like alcohol tolerance levels (you know your one-drink wonder friends), finding your correct dosage takes trial and error. Start with half the recommended dosing on the packaging and see how you feel.

What HOW CBD product should I choose?

Great question! There are so many exciting ways to decide. First, ask yourself which area you’d love a little help conquering — bedtime, getting through the day, working out, or feeling in the mood for sex. If you’re like most women, one of these areas impacts the other two. We’re not saying it’ll be the best decision of your life, but we’re not saying it won’t.
