Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) can be thought of as a distant cousin of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. CBD, however, is non-intoxicating. Being a member of the cannabis family, you may want to use CBD for the same purposes that are typically associated with medical marijuana, including relief from both physical and mental pain. CBD is available in a plethora of product formulations ranging from oils to topical lotions.
How Does CBD Work?

The mechanisms of CBD are not completely known to scientists. CBD appears to be active in the endocannabinoid system, which is a vast network of mechanisms throughout the body. The cannabis family as a whole (which includes all plants producing CBD and THC) has been found to interact with this system directly.

Is CBD Legal?
The CBD provided by CBGenius is legal to purchase and ship throughout the United States. Globally, the laws are less uniform, so please contact us if you would like to know whether we can ship our CBD to your country.
Do I Need a Medical Card to Buy CBGenius Products?
No, but is always wise to consult with a doctor before starting a new health regimen.
Will I Get High?
No. Our CBD contains very minuscule amounts of THC and so it is virtually impossible to get high.
What Are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the primary chemical output of the cannabis plant. There are over 85 identified cannabinoids, the most well known being THC, which is known for its recreational effects. CBD is the second most well known, and unlike THC, it is non-intoxicating.
What Are Terpenes?
The cannabis plant doesn’t only produce cannabinoids – it is also known for its terpenes, which are chemicals responsible for the cannabis aroma. Terpenes are universally regarded as safe by authorities such as the FDA. Terpenes are not passive – they act on neurotransmitters and can potentially provide a host of therapeutic value. Some common terpenes found in cannabis are pinene, limonene, and myrcene. There are in total over 140 terpenes that are naturally produced in cannabis.
Will I Pass a Drug Test?
We cannot make direct claims about whether or not our products will show up on a drug test, and cannot legally guarantee it. Our products do, however, contain less than 0.3% THC, while recreational marijuana intended to get you high can have vastly more than that – typically around 15-30%.
Will CBD Treat My Symptoms?
We cannot make any direct claims regarding the benefits of CBD. We do, however, encourage that you look at our blog posts and research – there are thousands of reputable studies relating to the subject of CBD benefits.
Isolate vs. Full Spectrum CBD?
Full-spectrum products contain CBD, terpenes, and other cannabinoids, while CBD isolated products is 99% pure CBD. The right product differs for everyone.
