Q: What is CBD?
A: CBD ( Cannbidiol) is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel "high" and can actually counteract the pshycoactivity of THC.
CBD is non-psychoactive which makes it appealing for patients looking for relief from inflammation, anxiety, arthritis pain, and fibromyalgia.
All cannabinoids act as ligands, meaning they dock onto the binding site of a protein and have the ability to modulate a receptor’s behavior. CB1 receptors are widely distributed, but are particularly abundant in areas of the brain, including those concerned with movement, coordination, pain and sensory perception, emotion, memory, cognition, autonomic and endocrine functions
CB2 receptors are found mostly in the immune system, and they seem to reduce inflammation and certain kinds of pain. Although cannabinoids all have similar structures, they display a wide array of actions at each of the different receptors.
Q: Are your products legal?
A: Yes. All of The Bitch Bombs products are legal, pursuant to the 2014 Hemp Farm Bill and 2015 Industrial Hemp Farming Act. As all of our products contain less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis, and are derived from industrial hemp, they are considered hemp products and are therefore not subject to the same prohibitory federal and state laws concerning marijuana (cannabis with a THC concentration of 0.3% or higher)
Q: Will your products cause me to fail a drug test?
A: While the maximum concentration of 0.3% THC will not typically cause one to fail a drug test, there have been anecdotal reports of full spectrum hemp extracts causing one to fail a urinalysis for marijuana. While we do advise customers to consume our products at their own risk, there is a significantly smaller possibility of failing a drug test if using products that contain a hemp extract isolate, for example Heka – Energos. Hemp extract isolate contains 0% THC, and since drug tests either test for THC or a metabolite of THC, phytocannabinoid isolates alone will not cause somebody to fail a drug test.
Q: How CBD is Absorbed Through the Skin
A: While you relax in a CBD bath soak, the CBD and other skin-promoting nutrients infused into your favorite CBD bathing product pass through the epidermis, glands, and hair follicles on the skin’s surface.Because the nutrients of CBD bath products are absorbed through the skin, the hemp oil’s cannabinoids, vitamins and minerals never reach the bloodstream. Instead, the CBD interacts is able to work directly with cannabinoid receptors located throughout the skin to provide botanical benefits where they’re needed most.
Because the cannabinoids never reach the bloodstream, even cannabis bath products containing the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will never cause a high. Still, cannabinoid-infused bath products derived from marijuana are only available in states that have legalized recreational or medical marijuana. Hemp CBD bath products, on the other hand, are available in most major markets.
Q: Are your products made with sugar?
A: No, we do not use sugar in our products! Here is why : In warm, moist environments, sugar encourages growth of yeast and bacteria. Boosting your risk for yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.
