CBD FAQ

Try our CBD shots at Mother's 3 locations (Westside, Downtown and Eastside).

Mother’s is proud to offer a variety of CBD shots at Mother’s 3 locations (Westside, Downtown and Eastside) . Over the last few weeks, we’ve received several questions about what CBD is, where it’s from, and how safe it is to take CBD.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the name of a compound found in the cannabis plant. Researchers have been studying the potential therapeutic uses of CBD extensively over the last few years. Here’s a brief rundown on some of the most frequently asked questions about CBD and their answers.
 


 

WILL CBD SHOTS GET ME HIGH?

No, CBD shots won’t get you high.

THC and CBD both come from hemp, but the compounds have very different effects. THC is known for the psychoactive “high” it produces when broken down and introduced to the body when smoking or cooking it into foods. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind to the CB1 or CB2 receptors in your brain meaning that it doesn’t have the psychoactive effects of THC.
 


 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBD?

While CBD is not psychoactive, it does appear to produce significant changes and the body and may offer medical benefits to those who consume it. CBD has been proven to help reduce nausea, improve appetite, relieve pain, and reduce stress and anxiety in many users.

One study from the Journal of Experimental Medicine discovered that CBD reduced chronic pain and inflammation in mice. Likewise, a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found CBD to be an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, antiemetic, and antipsychotic agent, stating that CBD is a safe and effective treatment for neurodegenerative disorders. According to this study on cannabidiol and its clinical applications, CBD is a potential medicine for treating neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting, nausea, anxiety, and schizophrenia.

Another study published in Nature journal compared the effects of a public speaking test on healthy control patients and social anxiety disorder patients. 24 never before treated patients with social anxiety disorder were given either CBD or placebo an hour and a half before the test. The study explains that pretreatment with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort in their speech performance compared to the placebo group.
 


 

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

Dosage varies from person to person and depending on the issue you are using CBD to treat. This article intends to serve as a starting point of reference. It is always safest to small and to gradually increase from there.

Herb recommends taking 2.5-15 mg daily for general health, 2.5-20 mg daily for chronic pain, and 40-160 mg daily for sleep disorders. The CBD Oil Review serving standard is 25 mg of CBD taken twice a day. They recommend that you increase dosage every 3-4 weeks by 25 mg until you achieve relief from your symptoms.

Mother’s CBD shots contain 25 mg of CBD each. With the dosage we provide, the CBD will take effect anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour after consuming. For the fastest results, take your CBD shot on an empty stomach.

WHAT IS CBD?

Cannabidiol —CBD— is a compound in Cannabis that has medical effects but does not make people feel “stoned” and actually counters some of the effects of THC. After decades in which only high-THC Cannabis was available, CBD-rich strains are now being grown by and for medical users.

CBD is a compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This series of receptors regulates pain sensation, mood, the immune system, memory, appetite, stress response and countless other important physical functions.
 


 

WHAT IS THE ENCANNABINOIDAL SYSTEM?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within our bodies. Scientists discovered this system in the 1990s.

The ECS is designed to repair damaged cells and provide a state of internal stability necessary for survival, despite fluctuations in our external environment.

A human’s endocannabinoid system affects many regions of the body, including functions of the immune system, the central nervous system (including the brain), organs, connective tissue, and glands.

The ECS assists in various biological tasks, including appetite, analgesia, energy & balance, immune function, memory, metabolism, sleep, stress response, thermoregulation, and the function of the autonomic nervous system.
 


 

WHAT IS A CANNABINOID?

A cannabinoid is a compound that fits into a cannabinoid receptor. Hemp produces over 80 different cannabinoids that work synergistically with a mammal’s endocannabinoid system.

Cannabinoids work with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast and vital receptor system essential for maintaining homeostasis, or good health. This receptor system exists in the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs. The ECS accepts our bodies’ own endocannabinoids as well as the cannabinoids found in hemp.
 


 

DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION OR MEDICAL CARD?

No. Mother’s CBD products are classified as hemp and are thus legally available to anyone who wishes to purchase them.

In contrast to marijuana, federal law does allow for the cultivation, processing and marketing of hemp and hemp products, which would include cannabinoids derived from industrial hemp, under the conditions set forth in Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (aka the “Farm Bill”). Passed by Congress and signed into law by the President in 2014, the Farm Bill permits the growth and cultivation of industrial hemp in states where hemp is legal to grow. This legislation, coupled with our status as a commercial industrial hemp registrant with the Oregon Department of Agriculture, allows for Mother’s to operate in accordance with Federal hemp law.
 


 

WHERE DOES MOTHER’S CBD COME FROM?

Mother’s is always working with local farmers to provide you with local products. Currently, the CBD in our Juice Shots is cultivated and processed in Central Oregon. Our first batch of Gummy Bears comes to us from the UK and a highly reputable source. We are working to make this product local in 2018.
 


 

WHEN DO THE SHOTS ARRIVE?

Our CBD shots are made fresh 3 times per week. Drop off times are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday around 2 pm.
 


 

CAN I PRE-ORDER?

YES… Please ask any of our counter people about placing an order.
 


 

WILL IT MAKE ME SLEEPY?

We have found that some people do get sleepy taking CBD. It depends on the individual but given that one of the properties of CBD is to help with relaxation, we do hear that CBD makes some people sleepy and can be used as a sleepaide.
 


 

IS IT OKAY FOR KIDS?

Of course this is your call. We encourage you to ask your Doctor prior to giving CBD to anyone under the age of 18.
 


 

IS IT OKAY IF I’M PREGNANT?

Cannabinoids have been consumed by many pregnant women over the years to relieve uncomfortable symptoms such as nausea. However, you should always consult your Doctor prior to consuming CBD if you are pregnant.
 


 

WILL CBD MAKE ME FAIL A DRUG TEST?

As with all hemp products, there is a chance that consumption could trigger a positive drug test. Please consult with your doctor and/or employer if this is a concern.
