Frequently Asked Questions

About CBD & CBG

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid, naturally occurring compound found in hemp plants. CBD is associated with numerous health and wellness benefits. Many people that are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects and medicine more in synch with natural processes are turning to CBD. CBD is non psychoactive, meaning it will not produce any mind-altering effects and is not addictive.

Will CBD Get Me High?

No! Our CBD is extracted from 100 percent locally grown CBD rich hemp and has no psychoactive effects.

What is CBG?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a lesser known but incredibly effective cannabinoid. It is not present in large quantities in most hemp strains. CBG has been found to act on very specific physiological systems and problems, and results for medicinal use are extremely promising. This powerful cannabinoid has no intoxicating or psychoactive affects and offers a whole host of therapeutic benefits.

Will CBG Get Me High?

No, Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and will not get you high

What Is The Endocannabinoid System?

The body’s endocannabinoid system is comprised of different receptors acting as signaling cells that help keeping your body in balance. It plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes in the body that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more. CBD interacts with this system to restore balance where needed.

Is There THC In Your CBD Product?

Double Down CBD is extracted from industrial, organic hemp flower, which legally can only have up to 0.3% THC. All our products contain less than 0.3% THC.

Why do people take CBD?

CBD is naturally absorbed and accepted by the body’s receptors to provide enhanced wellness. The positive effects provided by CBD are a safe and natural way to improve one’s overall feelings of wellness, target specific areas of release all in a natural non-pharmaceutical manner free from side effects, causes no damage to internal organs over prolonged use and is non-addictive.

What's the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

The cannabis plant has two species: Hemp and Marijuana. Hemp has naturally a higher amount of CBD, which is the non-psychoactive compound of the plant and has vast medical and wellness benefits.  Hemp CBD has less than 0.3% THC and is legal in the U.S.. Marijuana has naturally higher amounts of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid and contains much lesser amounts of CBD.

What should I look out for when selecting a CBD extract?

You should know precisely the content of the container and first of all make sure no harmful ingredients like solvents are used. For maximum health benefits we recommend looking out for a “full spectrum” product instead of a product made with CBD isolates. Look out for information about the ingredients as well as the manufacturing of the product. Access to independent lab reports speak volumes to the product’s purity, quality, consistency and safe use.  At Double Down we pride ourselves to have full transparency and traceability of our ingredients, from the seed of the plant at the farm to the bottled tincture. Our independent lab reports can be accessed directly using the QR code on the package or on our website.

What does "full spectrum" CBD mean?

As the name suggests, full spectrum or whole plant extract is extracted from the hemp plant which contains all the cannabinoids found in the plant, including less than 0.3% THC. In addition, to these compounds, full spectrum hemp extract also contains essential vitamins, minerals, Omega fatty acids, flavonoids, chlorophyll and terpenes.

Is CBD legal?

Double Down products are made from USA-grown hemp a legal regulated crop under the federal U.S. Farm Bill.  As our hemp extracts are full spectrum, they contain many different phytocannabinoids and other plant-based compounds, including less than 0.3% THC. The detailed amounts can be accessed on our lab reports.  Please consult to your State’s regulations and guidelines for the legal status of these ingredients.

Will CBD show up in a drug test?

Our full-spectrum products contain a complete range of cannabinoids, including a very limited amount of THC (below 0.3%). Most drug tests and drug screenings scan for the presence of THC but vary as to what compounds and what cutoff levels are being analyzed. Therefore, Double Down makes no guarantee that users will or will not fail a drug test or drug screening.

Amount & Usage

CBD extracts are well tolerated by most people and are considered safe as they are not toxic and have almost no side effects. Please consult your physician before use if you are pregnant, nursing, have or suspect a medical condition or are taking any medications.

How much of the tincture should I take?

Generally, suggested use is for adults to take 1ml (one full dropper) 2-3 times per day or as needed. As everybody’s systems work differently, we advise to assess your own tolerance level and find your therapeutic dose. Start with lower amounts, and gradually increase the amount if you feel you need more.

Are your CBD/CBG extracts suitable for diabetics?

We use glycerin instead of artificial or natural sweeteners for our products. Glycerin is naturally mild and sweet in taste, but it is not metabolized as sugar in the body and doesn’t cause a rise in blood sugar, making it a perfect choice for diabetics and low-carb dieters.

Can I overdose on this product?

CBD is not toxic, and it appears nearly impossible to overdose on CBD. As far as how much is too much CBD— everyone reacts differently to different amounts. As with any dietary supplement, people will react differently. It is best to follow the recommended serving size indicated on the Double Down CBD packaging.

This provides us with information about the potency and quality of the flower itself and ensures it is pesticide free.  Secondly, we test every small batch of our tinctures.  Every product is tested for the “good”: Potency of CBD, presence and amount of other cannabinoids, THC levels as well as the “bad”: Solvents, other harmful substances, bacteria and fungi, as well as any other harmful materials like heavy metal.

We use an accredited, independent lab for all of our testing to ensure unbiased results.
