Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. There is a major difference between CBD isolate and Full Spectrum hemp extract. Most brands only sell isolate CBD, which is only one of 100+ cannabinoids found in hemp.
How does CBD work?
CBD, and all other cannabinoids, attach themselves to certain receptors in the body to produce their effects. The body has two cannabinoid receptors called CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors, CBD has its greatest effect on the CB2. The reason that is important is because CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. CB1 receptors are mostly in the brain.
How to recognize "good" CBD products?
Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell the good CBD products from others on the market. One sign is when a company is utilizing CBD isolates in its purest form. When you hear this, you should be wary because all of the other parts of the plant have been removed and all that is left is basically synthesized CBD. This is done by using harsh chemical solvents like hexane and heptane. Most of the time the trace amounts of these harsh chemical solvents are below federal mandated reporting criteria and therefore you might be ingesting these harsh chemicals without even knowing it. Always do your research.
Why are lab tests important?
Through lab testing, companies and consumers can find out exactly what's inside the product they are about to consume. Top rated brands provide lab verifications for their products, but a lot of smaller companies do not. Potency lab testing is very costly, but also very necessary. These lab reports, often referred to as certificates of analysis (COA), are the key to knowing what is or is not in the important hemp extract in your product. CBD is operated in an unregulated space, meaning there is currently no quality or content control on CBD products sold in the general consumer market. Lab reports empower consumers by providing the opportunity to discover exactly what is in each and every product they purchase. This is obviously essential in today's unregulated marketplace.
Why choose our Full-Spectrum CBD products?
We have the best full-spectrum CBD-rich whole plant cannabinoid products. By using European grown industrial hemp plants, our products retain necessary terpenes, cannabinoids, vitamins, lipids, nutrients, and compounds. The CBD in our products is extracted using a responsible C02 supercritical extraction method to make it the most effective by keeping important cannabinoids, nutrients, and other compounds. This way you are getting the benefits of the whole plant and not just a single part. All of our products meet the legal requirements and each products can be traced with a batch number to the lab results to ensure you are buying the best organically grown hemp-based CBD product on the market.
How do I understand the label?
Many consumers don't understand how to read a CBD mg label and therefore are getting less for their money and their pain management. Bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to your CBD products. A 6oz bottle of 250mg lotion is providing you with roughly 42 mg of CBD per ounce, whereas a 4oz bottle of 250mg lotion will provide you with 62mg of CBD per ounce. Remember, you are paying for the CBD, not the base. So expect to pay more for a 3oz 500mg than a 6oz 250mg.
Will Native Remedy CBD products cause me to fail a drug test?
Native Remedy carries full spectrum CBD products, which contain less than 0.3% THC as mandated by U.S. law. This does mean that it is possible to fail a drug test using our CBD products, however, drug tests vary and are not uniform. Some are more sensitive than others, such as a hair follicle test, and could test inconclusive. Scientists aren't ready to give consumers a definitive "yes" or "no" about whether any form of CBD can show up on a drug test. Currently, the best research points to "probably not" or "maybe."
Different testing methods have different cut off values and detection windows:
URINE: In urine test, THC-COOH must be present at a concentration of 50 nanograms per milliliter to trigger a positive test. Native Remedy products are much lower than that, and a person would need to consume multiple full bottles of our oil at one time to even come close.
BLOOD: Blood tests are far less common than urine tests for drug screening, so they are unlikely to be used for workplace testing. This is because THC is quickly eliminated from the bloodstream.
SALIVA: Currently, saliva testing isn't common, and there are no established cut-off limits for detecting THC in saliva. A set of 2017 recommendations published in the Journal of Medical Toxicology suggest a cut-off value of 4 ng/ml.
HAIR: Hair testing isn't common, except in specific fields, and there are currently no established cut-off limits for THC metabolites in hair. Private industry cut-offs include 1 picogram per milligram of THC-COOH.
Can I take/use Native Remedy CBD products with prescription medication?
If you are taking prescription medication, always consult your doctor prior to beginning CBD or any other health or dietary supplement.
How much CBD oil should I take in a day?
Native Remedy only sells 1000mg and 500mg CBD oil. This is done to provide you with the opportunity to adjust the dosage to your unique need. There are approximately 20 drops in 1 mL. We recommend starting off with 5-6 drops every six hours as needed. From there, you can adjust the number of drops up or down as you notice the impact on your body. This is a similar dosing practice to over the counter medicines which suggest dosages at typically 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours. Some days you may need a higher dose, such as to control menstrual cramps or a bad headache. Studies suggest that full spectrum CBD products have a much larger margin of benefit verses CBD isolate. CBD isolate is showing to have little to no effect if you are not able to find your unique dosage needs. If taken daily at the rate suggested, up to 1ml per day, one bottle would last you 1-2 months. However, many people may only use it when needed for headaches or cramps etc, in that case a bottle could last you 6 months or even longer.
Will I get high using Native Remedy CBD products?
No. You cannot get high from CBD oil, even full spectrum products. Our products contain less than 0.3% THC, this is not enough THC to get you "high." For comparison, the average marijuana joint has anywhere from 8% to 30+% of THC in it. You will not experience any psychoactive effects by taking Native Remedy CBD oil.
What can CBD be used for?
While we can't make medical claims to what CBD can or cannot treat, it has shown to have a positive impact on people's and pet's lives. CBD has a wide range of uses, and we encourage everyone to research the widely available information online. Research has shown potential of CBD products to help with anxiety, aches, pains, inflammation, acne, menstrual cramping, aging and other everyday ailments.
Are Native Remedy CBD products third-party lab tested for quality?
Yes! Our raw CBD is first tested for quality at SC Labs in California for safety and quality and then our finished products are tested a second time at Desert Valley Testing in Phoenix, Arizona for quality and potency. All of our products will have lab results available online. Look at the label on your bottle and locate the batch code. All of our third party testing results can be found here.
What is the difference between CBD Tinctures and CBD Oil?
CBD oil is the most common form of taking pure CBD for medical purposes. Essentially, CBD oil is pure CBD extracted from the cannabis plants suspended in an oil solution, such as MCT (coconut oil.) CBD tinctures are a bit different than the oil. While it is still a concentrated form of CBD, with tinctures, the CBD is actually suspended in a small amount of distilled alcohol, such as vegetable glycerin. Native Remedy currently only makes CBD Oil because we believe this to be the most beneficial product.
How accurate is the labeling for Native Remedy products?
Our products follow the guidelines of US Pharmacopoeia (USP Standards), which allows a 10 percent margin of error in CBD content labeling. Many studies are showing that about 70% of CBD products are mislabeled and only 30% of the labels contain factual information (that is, the CBD content fell within the 10% margin of error allowed by the US Pharmacopoeia). Fluctuations in the content of CBD, a substance of a very good safety profile, may not be dangerous, however, the lack of factual content information is misleading to consumers. Over labeling (containing much less CBD content than declared on the packaging) prevents the consumer from the benefits intended, and under labeling denies the consumer pertinent information for their pain relief needs and will deny them the information needed for purchasing from a reputable supplier elsewhere.
What is a USP Standard?
The standards set by US Pharmacopoeia are set to asses the quality, strength, identity and purity of chemical medicines, dietary supplements and many other items.
Can CBD Tinctures and Oils be vaped?
Never vape a CBD tincture. As described above, a CBD tincture has an alcohol base, such as vegetable glycerin, and this is dangerous to vape. There are many warnings now about vaping, especially vaping products that are not intended to vape. Native Remedy does not recommend vaping any of our products.
How much does Native Remedy charge for shipping?
Native Remedy charges a flat rate of $10. There is free shipping for purchases over $100.
How long will it take to receive my purchased items?

You may return new, unused, and unopened products within 30 days of delivery for a full refund, however, we do ask that you pay shipping for these returns. If the return is a result of our error, you will receive a full refund or exchange for the item as well and Native Remedy will pay for shipping.
