CBD 101

Will CBD make me high?


No! All of our products are derived from hemp, and contain <0.3% THC per legal requirements. THC levels in our products are not nearly large enough to make the user feel “high”.




How does it work?


CBD is a Cannabinoid, which interacts with our Endo-Cannabinoid system. The Endo-Cannabinoid system is the largest receptor system in the body governing many of our bodies processes such as mood, energy, pain and sleep. The better the Endo-Cannabinoid functions the better we feel, and the best way to enhance it's functioning is though consuming cannabinoids such as CBD!




Where is your CBD produced?


Our CBD oil is from American non-GMO Hemp grown in Colorado. They are free of any pesticides, herbicides, solvents, or chemical fertilizers.




How do I take the CBD drops?


We recommended taking CBD by simply placing a few drops under your tongue
and holding it there for around a minute. THIS METHOD ALLOWS FOR MAXIMUM ABSORPTION AND HELPS CBD ENTER YOUR BLOODSTREAM MORE INSTANTANEOUSLY. However, it can also be used as a topical spot moisturiser. If you are sensitive to tastes, our tincture can be added to a cup of coffee or incorporated into your daily foods.




What is CBD?


CBD is the acronym for “Cannabidiol” – it’s one of the most beneficial active ingredients found in the hemp plant (also known as Cannabis sativa). In recent years, there has been a resurgence in the use of hemp due to its natural therapeutic properties. It is thought by scientists that the compound cannabidiol has the potential to help maintain balance in the body, by interacting with your internal endocannabinoid system.

Broad Spectrum VS Full Spectrum?


Full spectrum extracts contain all the phytochemicals naturally found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp derived full-spectrum extracts have a THC content below 0.3%. The full spectrum of the active compounds work together synergistically to amplify the effects and increase the efficacy of the individual components. This phenomenon is referred to as the entourage effect. The amount of THC in each bottle is very minimal and won't give the user a 'high' feeling or cause any physcoactive effects. Broad spectrum extracts contain CBD and all the other compounds within the plant, including terpenes and other cannabinoids, with the exception of THC. Just like full spectrum extracts, broad spectrum can also produce the entourage effect.




Will CBD help me?


Due to TGA regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not our CBD oil can help with specific ailments. We do however urge everyone to research the widely available information online. You can easily find many resources about CBD Oil and its benefits.




Why should you care where your hemp is sourced from?


The demand for hemp extracts is rapidly increasing in the U.S. However, there is still limited supply of U.S.-grown hemp, resulting in high prices that cannot compete against imported hemp extract from places like China or Eastern Europe. Consumers seeking quality products may find a lack of transparency when it comes to the origin of the hemp extract in their products. And unfortunately, there is limited data behind the volume and quality control behind these imported hemp extracts. At Oz Xtract, we take great care to source high-quality CBD Oil from hemp that is grown in the USA using sustainable practices.




How is it made?


Our CBD Oil is made from C02 Extracted hemp. C02 extraction is the best method
as it leaves absolutely no solvent residues, so the final oil is impeccably pure. Producing a yielder, more natural and high quality CBD. This is a very environmentally friendly process. The extraction agent in the supercritical CO2 extraction process is carbon dioxide – an example of green chemistry. This process is clean, safe and leaves no negative impact on the environment.




Where is it shipped from and how long will it take to arrive?


We are located in Queensland. We ship to all throughout Australia via express shipping and it usually takes 1-3 days (covid depending). We dispatch all orders at 2pm AEST Monday - Friday. Any orders placed after 2pm will be sent out the following business day.




Will CBD show up on a standard drug test?


Due to the vast differences in both personal body chemistry and each screening or test, we cannot make any guarantees that using our products will not lead to a positive test result. While we have not heard reports of users testing positive for THC with our broad spectrum, we do advise using caution if you are tested regularly! Oz Xtract hold no liability for positive drug test results.




How much should I take?


As everybody is different there is no one size fits all. It is best to go by the up titration method. Meaning to start low and slow. Start on 1-2 droplets in the morning and 1-2 droplets in the evening, gradually increasing until optimum results are found. Using this method also saves CBD, instead of jumping into a high dose when a lower dose would have been just as effective.
