Frequently Asked Questions
Will CBD work for me?
Unfortunately, CBD does not work for everyone or every condition. There are studies showing that about 80% of people who try CBD have seen relief from their ailments, while 20% reported no change. It is important that you find the right CBD product. We have created the [LUX Potency Scale] to help you determine which of our products may provide you with a physical response to CBD. The proper dosing has been noted by users to improve their results. To maximize your results with using CBD, we recommend that you speak to a wellness or health care professional to determine how using CBD can be beneficial to you.
Will CBD get me high, and will it show up on a drug screen?
CBD is the non-psychotropic component of the hemp plant. It will not give you that stereotypical "high" feeling. Additionally, it is not tested for on drug screens. THC is the psychotropic component of the plant and can be detected on a drug screen. Our range of LUX MEDI RX products contains .3% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or less. THC-FREE other types of CBD products have a label notation. Be advised that "Full spectrum" and “Broad Spectrum” products contain small amounts of THC that could potentially show up on a drug screen. You should read all product descriptions thoroughly before purchasing a product.
Does CBD interact with other medications?
Research shows that CBD can interact with other medications. Always consult your doctor before using CBD. The main interactions occur with blood thinners, high blood pressure medication, steroids, and small class of antipsychotic drugs. If your medicine requires that you stay away from grapefruit, it is recommended you not use CBD. For more information on drug interactions, please consult your physician.
Are there negative side effects of CBD?
On its own, CBD is a safe substance – but it can interact with other pharmaceuticals for unintended effects. Taken in higher dosages, CBD can deactivate cytochrome P450 enzymes. This means that CBD can affect how your body processes and metabolizes pain killers, blood thinners, insulin injections, and more. If you are taking anything of the sort for an existing health condition, consult your physician before including CBD in your daily routine. CBD-drug interactions are not fully understood, which can make them dangerous. If you are taking pharmaceuticals, be sure to monitor changes in your blood levels and adjust dosages accordingly. Problematic interactions more often occur when a person is consuming extremely high doses of CBD isolate products, which are usually near- or 100%-pure CBD.
Is CBD legal?
The Federal Farm Bill (the Agricultural Act of 2018) legalized the production and sale of hemp bred with 0.3% percent or less THC. The industrial hemp plants we use in our products meet this requirement; full-spectrum, whole-flower hemp CBD products are completely federally legal. NOTE: Marijuana-derived CBD products (those with over 0.3% THC) are illegal under federal law and under state law except in states where medical and/or recreational cannabis is legal.
