What Is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a prolific, naturally occurring category of molecules called cannabinoids found in the plant genus Cannabis Sativa. CBD is one of over 100 compounds found in cannabis and hemp. CBD and THC are the most common of these cannabinoids and are present in the highest concentrations. For this reason, they are also the most recognized and studied. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause the euphoric high associated with THC. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system and use cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells, among other things. According the peer-reviewed medical journal Pharmacological Reviews, "modulating the activity of the endocannabinoid system turned out to hold therapeutic promise in a wide range of disparate diseases and pathological conditions, ranging from mood and anxiety disorders, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, neuropathic pain, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, to cancer, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, glaucoma, obesity/metabolic syndrome, and osteoporosis, to name just a few."
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is derived from hemp plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). At The Botanical Shoppe, the majority of our CBD oils and other Remedy CBD products have 0.00%, or non-detectable levels of THC. The cannabidiol (CBD) content of CBD oil, and other cannabinoids varies tremendously, as manufacturers use a varying assortment of hemp plants and preparation techniques. All of our Remedy CBD products are produced with a high concentration of greater than 99% CBD and 0.00% THC so as to be as inclusive as possible and provide options for those who may be regularly drug tested.
Why should I buy my CBD products from The Botanical Shoppe?
Our Remedy brand CBD is the premier Cannabidiol option for several reasons including our extensive 11-step extraction process and our 3rd party independent lab testing. Those lab tests screen for other cannabinoids, pesticides, and concentration levels, among other things. In fact, many of our consumers go down in concentration when switching to our product from other CBD products on the market because of our Nano-emulsification process, which allows supplements to be absorbed at greater rates. The Botanical Shoppe also stands behind a THC free guarantee for our THC free products, so you can rest assured that you will not show up for THC on a drug screening.

What’s The Difference Between Hemp & Marijuana?
Industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same genus of plant, potentially even sharing the same species of Cannabis Sativa. However, the two have a drastically different genetic profile. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Typically, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa would be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. However, newer industrial hemp varieties in the USA are being bred to have more flowers and higher yields of terpenes and cannabinoids, such as the all organic, non-GMO, pesticide-free hemp we use!
Most marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a small amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand is the inverse, naturally having a very high amount of CBD, and only a trace amount of THC. Nevertheless, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for analgesic benefits of cannabis without the ‘high.’ Hemp is used for making herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used for recreation. The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil, since marijuana and hemp are two forms of cannabis.
Is CBD Oil Legal?
There is no need for a prescription to purchase or consume hemp-based CBD. It is a natural constituent of the high CBD Hemp strains of the plant containing very low levels of THC. Having only trace amounts, or non-detectable levels of THC, our hemp-based Remedy CBD products are non-psychoactive and legal in all 50 states.
CBD Oil/Hemp Oil and other hemp products are considered to be food-based. As such, there are currently no restrictions on the production, sale and consumption of hemp oil in the United States. CBD products are legal in most countries in the world as long as they contain low, or in some countries undetectable, concentrations of the molecule THC.
How should I store my CBD? What is the shelf life?
For the best shelf life please store in a cool dark area, this will assure there is no loss in potency. Don’t allow to sit in direct sunlight. If properly stored, our CBD products have around an 18 months shelf life.
Will I Fail A Drug Test If I Take CBD Products?
CBD is a legal cannabinoid found in hemp, and drug screenings are looking for THC. Some Remedy CBD products contain tiny amounts of THC that could show up in a drug screen, but the majority of our products would not. The Botanical Shoppe is one of only a few manufacturers that stand behind a THC free guarantee for our THC free products.
What Is The Best Method Of Use?
For our dietary supplements we can only recommend them for internal consumption. For those who don’t like the flavor of CBD in oil form, we offer a number of other options including capsules, vape juice, gummies and even a highly concentrated topical salve. For increased efficacy, oils are to be taken sublingually and held under your tongue for 30-60 seconds before being swallowed.
Will I Get High?
No. Our Hemp Extract products are all made from industrial hemp, and we remove THC to undetectable levels, so there is no psychoactive effect from taking our products.
Where Can I find the 3rd party testing for your oils?
All of our 3rd party lab tests can be found on our website on our product pages.
