Learn About CBD
What is the best CBD oil?
Whether CBD oil comes from hemp or marijuana, the best CBD oil is a full plant extract which contains terpenes and flavonoids naturally occurring in cannabis. The best CBD oil is one which has been lab tested to ensure its potency and safety as a clean oil that is fit for consumption. Here at United Extract, we have all of our products 3rd-party tested so we know its quality.
What is the Entourage Effect?
The entourage effect is a synergistic relationship with the naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis plants. The cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in cannabis have shown to work considerably better when they are taken together, as opposed to being taken in isolation from each other.
Do drug tests look for CBD?
No. Drug tests look for THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. Drug tests do not specifically test for CBD, but some CBD cannabis oils and CBD hemp oils will contain either a small amount (CBD hemp oil) or a significant amount of THC (CBD cannabis oil). These amounts of THC can cause a drug test failure when the person is using CBD cannabis oil. In the case of CBD hemp oil, which does not allow for a presence of THC higher than 0.3%, a drug test failure can occur if the person is using CBD hemp oil in large quantities.
United Extract uses only THC-FREE CBD, but caution must still be used when a drug test is possible. Check out our 3rd-party testing so you know how much THC there is.
Traveling with CBD?
Your best bet is to do some pre-travel research. For those who need to use CBD routinely to feel their best, search for the current rules, laws and regulations concerning traveling with CBD in-route and at destinations.
Flying with CBD - currently, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) includes medical marijuana on their list of banned substances. Also, TSA currently has no clear way of testing for the difference between CBD and THC, so we recommend not to fly with CBD.

What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is the term used to describe a sublingual tincture of CBD. CBD oil (or tincture) is made by mixing CBD extract from a cannabis plant into a base, like MCT oil. The CBD oil is meant to be held under the tongue to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. A sublingual absorption provides a faster effect than absorbing the product via the stomach (i.e. taking a CBD capsule or edible product).
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are oils found in all types of plants. There are around 200 terpenes in cannabis. These oils are what give cannabis its distinct aroma and flavor. Terpenes have beneficial effects and they work synergistically with cannabinoids like CBD and THC – this relationship is called the entourage effect.
How long should you keep CBD oil under your tongue?
Try to keep the CBD oil under your tongue for 30 – 60 seconds. The longer the oil is held there, the better, so it can be absorbed quickly into the bloodstream.
Does CBD get you HIGH like THC?
CBD is considered to be a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, so it will not get you high in the way that marijuana (THC) can. However, CBD can affect your mental state, and many users of CBD report a very subtle feeling of relaxation, alertness, or mental clarity from taking CBD.
Is it possible to overdose on CBD?
CBD has been shown to be safe to use in very high doses. However, it is possible to take too much CBD. A possible result of taking too much CBD is the increased chance of negative side effects like lethargy or drowsiness. In today's world where there are so many "possible side effects" with most medications, the side effects of CBD seem reasonable.
Are there negative drug interactions with CBD?
Yes. CBD is metabolized by a group of enzymes called the CYP450. These enzymes are responsible for metabolizing many commonly used drugs. CBD can inhibit the activity of the CYP450 enzymes. While CBD-drug interactions are more likely with very high doses of CBD, and CBD isolates, precaution must be taken when using CBD alongside other medications for serious conditions (i.e. epilepsy medications).
IMPORTANT: CBD AND DRUG INTERACTIONS CAN BE SERIOUS. ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST BEFORE TAKING CBD ALONG WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS.
What is CBD used for?
People are finding that CBD is useful for many conditions that have not responded well to conventional treatments. New benefits for using CBD with certain ailments are being discovered every day. Do your research and you will find so many posablities of CBD.
What is CBD isolate or CBD powder?
CBD isolate, otherwise called “pure CBD," is the CBD molecule separated from the rest of the compounds it normally occurs with. CBD isolate usually appears as a crystalline white powder. CBD isolate can be synthesized in a lab (synthetic CBD), so make sure you get Broad Spectrum, Wide Spectrum or Full Spectrum.
Products made with CBD isolate are clear, like water, and these products are NOT nearly as beneficial as the Broad Spectrum products produced at United Extract.
How long does it take for CBD to work?
The length of time it takes for CBD to take effect will depend on the route of administration -
The fastest effect is from smoking or vaporization (onset of effects in minutes).
Topical administration of CBD will be felt quickly as well.
The next fastest effect will be felt from a sublingual dosage (onset of effects in 15 – 60 minutes).
The slowest, and the longest lasting, will be from oral ingestion where the onset can be felt in about 90 minutes and typically lasts about 6 hours.
Is CBD addictive?
While nearly anything poses a possibility for addiction of some kind, CBD is not known to be addictive. In fact, CBD has shown strong potential to be helpful in reducing dependency for harmful substances like opioids.
Is there CBD in hemp?
Yes. Hemp plants contain CBD in varying concentrations, depending on the variety of hemp. The highest concentration of CBD in hemp plants will be found in the resinous flower of a flowering hemp plant.
