Frequently Asked Questions


Can I take my cannabis oil products on an empty stomach?

• Yes, you can - your oil does help induce an appetite, so whether you eat before, during or after you’ve had your oil it is perfectly fine.

Are there any side effects?

• Cannabis oil is relatively non-toxic and there are a few side effects.

Can you overdose?

• No.

Is it addictive?

• Addiction is a compulsive physiological and psychological need for a habit-forming substance. 

• It is possible to develop a psychological addiction to most of things that are taken to excess, however, it is not physically addictive.

How long does cannabis stay in your system?

• This depends. No one can say how long you will test positive for marijuana since the rate of THC metabolism varies per individual. 

• It is detectable in your urine for up to 30 to 35 days since last consumption.

Can I use medical cannabis for my pet?

• Yes, you can, but it’s best to do so under veterinary or specialist guidance.

• Your animal will love you for it. Read more about cannabis oil for pets.

Can I get CBD from juicing raw cannabis?

• By juicing or otherwise ingesting raw, unheated cannabis, one consumes THC and the other cannabinoids in their acid form. 

• A CBD-rich strain contains CBD-acid (CBDA), which, when heated, becomes CBD. 

• Unheated CBDA and unheated THCA (THC-acid) both have medicinal attributes, but there has been comparatively little scientific research into cannabinoid acids.

Will I fail a drug test if I medicate with CBD-rich cannabis?

• Yes, you may fail a drug test even if you experience no mood-altering effects from your CBD-rich medicine. 

• Drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoids.

• If one medicates with CBD-rich cannabis that has a small amount of THC, the THC may register on the drug test.

Does CBD interact with other medications?

• Yes, CBD inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is involved in metabolizing many drugs.

• Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group, which is why the physician's advise patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication.

• By inhibiting cytochrome P450, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. In some situations, it may be advisable for a physician to monitor a patient’s blood levels of other medications while taking CBD.

• See CBD-Drug Interactions: The Role of Cytochrome P450 for more information.
