The following page breaks down the prominent CBD FAQs, and separates the myth from the science.
So, does CBD get me high?
No. CBD doesn’t contain the THC compound, which latches onto user’s CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain after consumption and produces the stoned feeling.
CBD can produce a very mild, near-imperceptible feeling of relaxation and can help users fall asleep, but aside from that, it isn’t psychoactive and therefore doesn’t deliver an “effect”.
At a low dose, CBD has been shown to make users more alert, whereas at high doses it can slow users down and send them into a languid slumber.
My state doesn’t have legal cannabis. Can you ship here?
Yes. KushyCBD ships to all 50 states. For deeper clarification and a history of CBD and cannabis laws nationwide, visit our CBD laws blog post.
Does CBD show up in a drug test?
Drug tests are designed to look for presence of THC in urine. CBD contains a maximum of 0.3% THC, meaning that you would need to consume an abnormal amount to test positive on a drug test.
What is the recommended dose?
There isn’t a clear answer to this question. Given that CBD isn’t psychoactive and there aren’t any adverse effects from overconsumption, we encourage patients to start at a low dose and then consume more if required.
KushyCBD gummies are divided into 1/8ths, and we typically recommend consuming between 12.5 to 25 mg per serving.
This article from our friends at CBD Origin gives a full breakdown of CBD dosing.
How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
Much like THC edibles, it takes approximately one hour for the CBD to take effect. Some patients report feeling the effects after 20 minutes, others around the 90 minute mark.
There are a number of variables (body mass, metabolism, empty vs full stomach etc.), and it depends on the ailment that you are trying to treat.
It’s important to remember that there isn’t really an “effect” as such. You may feel a little more lethargic, or feel relatively more calm, but you shouldn’t anticipate a “high” of any kind.
Is your packaging child-proof?
Cannabis is a space with notoriously stringent regulations for manufacturers, particularly as it relates to packaging.
KushyCBD has gone to great lengths to comply with all existing packaging laws to ensure that our products are 100% child-proof.
Is your packaging discreet?
Yes. Don’t worry. While our brand is big, brash and bold, our parcels are discreet.
What are the health benefits of CBD?
The list of reported health benefits from consuming CBD is long, and includes relief from anxiety, insomnia, inflammation and scores more.

Are there any side effects?
According to WebMD, the only reported side effects from CBD are dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness and feeling drowsy.
Does CBD make me drowsy?
Some CBD users have reported feeling drowsy at higher doses.
What’s the difference between the capsules and the gummies?
The difference between the gummies and the capsules comes down to personal preference in delivery method.
While our gummies are made with natural, organic ingredients, they do contain a small amount of sugar (derived from tapioca syrup) and therefore may not be suitable for your needs. Yes, the gummies are considerably more delicious and fun than the capsules, but if you are looking for something with zero sugar and zero calories, the capsules may be the best option for you.
What extraction process do you use?
From our suppliers: “Nutra99™ is extracted from top quality hemp strains utilizing proprietary hydrocarbon extraction methods and is known to be one of the purest hemp derived isolates on the market.”
Is KushyCBD full spectrum?
Our CBD is an isolate, so it is not full spectrum.

How much can I consume in a single day?
Much like the dosing question, there isn’t really a straightforward answer to this.
While the majority of patients consume less than 100 mg of CBD per day, WebMD reports safe usage of 1200-1500 mg per day…
Can I overdose on CBD?
There is no evidence to suggest that you can “overdose” on CBD.
How should I store my KushyCBD?
KushyCBD should be stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Once opened, you should store it in the refrigerator.
Is there an expiration date?
Unopened and stored in a cool, dark, dry place, the gummies will last for approximately one year from the manufacturing date. If opened, we ensure the same shelf life if they are kept cool, dry, and away from light.

Can I take KushyCBD with my current prescriptions?
While largely benign, CBD has been shown to have an adverse effect on the cytochrome P450 enzyme system, which is found in the liver and plays an important role in metabolizing drugs and prescriptions. Some studies have shown that CBD can slow the cytochrome P450 enzyme system’s processing time, however so have grapefruit and watercress.
If you are taking prescription medication, we strongly recommend consulting with your doctor prior to taking CBD.
