What is CBD?
CBD is short of Cannabidiol. It is just one of the many compounds known as Cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant. CBD has many beneficial properties.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all Cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of Cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannbinoids interact with the body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which promotes Homeostasis.

What does CBD do, what is CBD good for?
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system and promotes overall health and wellness. The endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors. Unlike the other cannabinoids, it doesn’t directly bind with CB1 and CB2 receptors.
What is the difference between Hemp Oil & CBD Oil?
Hemp oil can be a confusing term because it sometimes refers to hemp seed oil, and other times it refers to activated hemp extract. Hemp seeds do not contain cannabinoids such as CBD, whereas hemp extract does.
Will CBD get me high?
NO. The intoxicating compound in Cannabis is THC. While Medical Cannabis does contain concentrations of THC, our products are made using either Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract or CBD Isolate. This means that all of CBD Surprises Me products are THC Free and will not cause you to feel high in any way.

How long does it take for CBD to work?
It is unique to every individual. Some people may begin to notice effects right away, but for more, it takes a couple of weeks and even sometimes up to a month. The important thing to ensure efficiency is consistency – make sure you’re taking the same amount at roughly the same time(s) of day.
Do you test for potency, pesticides, heavy metals, etc.?
YES. CBD Surprises Me uses independent third-party testing to ensure purity and accurate concentrations of cannabinoids. This includes testing to be sure that our products are free of THC and any potential contaminants.
Does CBD interact with my medication?
Much more research needs to be done in this area. If you are taking prescription medications, we recommend that you consult your primary care physician before adding CBD to your routine.
