IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED THAT YOU CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR OR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL WHEN CONSIDERING ANY MEDICATION OR TREATMENT.

What is CBD?

CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol.  CBD works where the body and brain meet. The body has an endocannabinoid system producing a very small amount of CBD naturally. Increasing the amount of CBD in the body provides benefits addressing many ailments. Research shows that CBD has been one of the most, if not the most, helpful cannabinoid for reducing and treating a multitude of symptoms in humans and animals. According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD (39th ECDD 2017 Agenda item 5.2) 


Can CBD interact with other medications?

** IMPORTANT: CBD AND DRUG INTERACTIONS ARE NOT A JOKE. IF YOU WANT TO START TAKING CBD AND ARE ALREADY TAKING OTHER MEDICATIONS, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST! **

Yes. The way that CBD is metabolized by your body can interfere with how your body normally metabolizes other drugs you take. If those other drugs aren’t metabolized properly, they can hang around and stay in your system longer than you want. This can cause negative side effects and complications.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are both Cannabis. Hemp is simply the common and legal term for cannabis that contains less than .3% THC, and marijuana is the common and legal term for cannabis that contains .3% and more THC and usually ranges from 14% to upwards of 40% THC.

ALL CBD products sold at Two Moons contains less than .3% THC and will NOT get you "high".


Do your products contain THC/will I test positive on a drug screening?

Products that are full spectrum may contain trace amounts of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (<.3%).  Therefore, it is possible that you may test positive, however due to each person's body structure, chemistry and CBD usage, it is non-conclusive.  If you are concerned about drug testing you may want to consider taking an isolate product instead of a full spectrum product. Please ask our knowledgeable staff for products that contain 0% THC.


Is CBD legal?

YES!

On July 3, 2014, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed HB 1220 into law. The bill allowed universities to conduct clinical trials using CBD oil that was less than 0.3% THC and at least 10% CBD only for the treatment of intractable epilepsy.

On July 16, 2015, Gov. McCrory signed HB 766, which amended the CBD law.

According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), "hemp extract must be composed of less than nine-tenths of one percent (0.9%) tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by weight, at least five percent (5%) cannabidiol (CBD) by weight and may contain no other psychoactive substances." By law, patients are allowed to use and possess CBD but it remains illegal to cultivate or produce hemp extract in the state.

Be a responsible advocate for hemp CBD.  ALWAYS practice conscientious consumption as many people simply do not fully understand the nature of hemp derived CBD.   A couple good tips to remember are:

  • When transporting CBD flower from our stores to your home, always keep packages sealed with the proof of purchase affixed to the container until you arrive home.
  • Always vape/smoke CBD products in the privacy of your home or when not in public places or your vehicle
