Rise & Shine FAQ

What is Hemp?

Hemp is the common name of the plant Cannabis sativa. Hemp has been used for thousands of years as food and traditional medicine; fuel; and fiber for bricks, rope, and paper, making it one of our most valuable human allies in from the plant kingdom. People were even made to grow it in the American colonies! The most important difference between hemp and its close relative, marijuana, is that hemp contains almost none (less than 0.3% by law) of the chemical that gets you high: tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one at least 85 naturally-occurring chemicals in cannabis called “cannabinoids.” Unlike THC, it is non- psychoactive and legal nationwide. Research on its potential to support general wellness is ongoing. Science, traditional use, and anecdotal evidence show it could help with sleep, anxiety, stress, pain, inflammation, as well as other issues, though these uses have not been approved by the FDA.

Is CBD the only thing in hemp I should know about?

There are other interesting and useful things in hemp, including other cannabinoids and terpenes.

Hemp isn’t the only thing that makes cannabinoids; the human body produces some cannabinoids on its own. Our bodies have a system called the endocannabinoid system, which responds to cannabinoids in the body. Research is revealing this system, discovered in 1992, affects a wide range of functions in the body through the in uence of cannabinoids. These include CBD, THC, cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), and many, many others.

Terpenes are the largest group of chemicals produced by plants. Terpenes allow plants to prosper in certain environments. Some create flavors or fragrance that attract or repel insects or animals; some regulate plant growth; and many terpenes have been researched and used in pharmaceutical, agricultural, and other commercial applications.

Because of the additional cannabinoids and terpenes, full-spectrum products can work differently than pure CBD.

What is in Rise & Shine Hemp Oil?

Rise & Shine Hemp Oil is an extract of the hemp plant and a carrier oil. It is a “full-spectrum” product, meaning it contains CBD, trace amounts of THC, and other cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. 

How do I use it?

You can use hemp oil internally or externally. Internally, there is no established universal recommendation for use. So we recommend that the first time you start with small amounts (3 drops) and work your way up.

I am or will be drug tested. What do I need to know?

If you’re taking a full-spectrum hemp product like Rise & Shine hemp oil, a drug test for marijuana could result in a false- positive. If you are concerned about a false-positive test result, you might consider sharing with your administrator that you’re using a legal, full-spectrum hemp product that contains trace amounts of THC, below the legal limit.

I’m taking other medication. Should I be concerned about drug interactions with CBD?

Consult your doctor before using any herbal supplement -- especially before taking a product with CBD if you are taking drugs that react with grapefruit. Research on the interactions of cannabis generally and CBD specifically are ongoing. CBD, and many other chemicals, are metabolized in the liver by a number of cytochrome P450 isoenzymes, including CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6 and CYP3A4. These enzymes also are affected by a compound in grapefruit. CBD (and grapefruit) can inhibit the metabolism of certain chemicals, including the active ingredient in drugs like wayfarin, which could cause a build-up of the drug in the body.
