What is CBD? What does it stand for?


CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of the hundreds of phytocannabinoids in the cannabis sativa plant. It is derived directly from the hemp plant. Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system that seems to be directly involved in the function of the nervous and immune systems and the metabolism. CBD and Full Spectrum Hemp supplements support the healthy function of this system.




What is THC and how is it different from CBD?


Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant. THC binds with receptors, mostly in the brain, that control pain, mood, and other feelings. That's why THC can make you feel euphoric and give you the "high". CBD doesn't cause that high as it's thought to work with other elements/receptors in the body linked to feelings of well-being. Here's a list of phytocannabinoids found in both Hemp and Marijuana: Cannabinol (CBN) - sedative, antibiotic, anticonvulsant, and anti-inflammatory. Cannabidiol (CBD) - anticonvulsant, antioxidant, reduces anxiety, treats psychotic disorders, relieves pain, reduces inflammation, and relieves spasms Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, induces a euphoric high, relieves pain Cannabigerol (CBG) - antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and relieves pain Cannabichromene (CBC) - antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and relieves pain. Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) - induces a euphoric high and relieves anxiety.




How is Hemp different from Marijuana, and is it legal?


They are cousins, and THC and CBD are found both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana contains much more THC than hemp, while hemp has a lot of CBD. Hemp has all the medical benefits from phytocannabinoids, without the THC and the intoxicating feeling it brings. Hemp products are legal in all 50 U.S. States.




What is Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and how is it different from CBD?


Full spectrum hemp contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber. For hemp oil products, the flowers (or buds) are harvested and the plant’s oil is extracted from them. This oil can then be concentrated into full-spectrum hemp oil, which contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes found naturally in the plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of the cannabinoids found in hemp, along with cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and others. Each cannabinoid has a different effect on the body, and full-spectrum hemp oil contains a natural mixture. Our full-spectrum hemp oil supplements contain naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other healthy compounds extracted from Certified Organic Colorado Hemp. These great-tasting blends help balance and regulate the body’s interconnected physiological systems resulting in a variety of related benefits.




Will I fail a drug test while taking Hemp Oil or CBD products


Short answer - If you're concerned about drug testing, please stick with Day 3 Creation topical products. Long answer - it depends on where you get your products and how your body processes them. The drug tests commonly used don't look for the cannabinoids, they look for a compound created by the body when it metabolizes THC. Many CBD products on the market have been found to contain more THC than the label claims. Remember, CBD and hemp products should not contain more than .3% THC. To be sure your not getting more THC than expected, use a provider like Day 3 Creation that provides Certificates of Analysis (COA) for the product. This shows the results of 3rd party testing for THC, CBD, and any other components in the product.




Are there side effects?


Some reported side effects of cannabidiol include dry mouth, low blood pressure, light headedness, and drowsiness. Before you take any supplement, CBD/Hemp or otherwise, consult your doctor.




Can I cook with Hemp Oil?

Why choose Day 3 Creation?


Day 3 Creation is a Christian family owned business created to provide American-made Hemp based products to those who seek relief but are wary of intoxicants and potentially unsafe sources.

As a Christian, is it ok for me to use CBD or Hemp products?


Please consult with your priest/minister/religious advisor for the most current information, but at the time of this writing none of the major religions oppose the use of these products. As an example, here's this question when it was presented on the 700 Club, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTi08TszFO4. Using CBD and Hemp oil don't have the intoxicating effects of marijuana and by not smoking it you can avoid potential lung damage associated inhaling superheated gases.




What else is in the Day 3 Creation bottle?


Crude hemp oil is extremely dense and needs to be blended with other ingredients to allow for an easier delivery to the body. We use the following carrier oils: Fractionated MCT Coconut Oil, Organic cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cod liver oil, Sunflower seed oil, and Frankincense.




How is Day 3 Creation Hemp extracted?


Our hemp extract is produced using a two-step low temperature super-critical CO2 extraction process (free from harmful solvents), yielding a hemp oil extract that retains its full spectrum of beneficial phytocompounds. We extract the terpenes, then the cannabinoids, and then the other hemp phytocompounds. After decarboxylation, we reintroduce the terpenes at the same rate they were originally extracted from the hemp plant. This clean extraction process fully optimizes the plants naturally occurring Phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and antioxidants.
