What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is a natural oil extracted from the flowers and leaves of the Cannabis plant. It is used for a variety of purposes, most commonly to assist those suffering from chronic pain, insomnia and mood disorders.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes! Due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, Hemp is now viewed federally as an agricultural product and no longer as a controlled substance like marijuana, which continues to be categorized as a schedule 1 drug. Under federal law, it’s now legal to manufacture, sell, possess, use and transport CBD products across all 50 states. States are responsible for developing their own regulatory frameworks, overseen by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
To be legally considered CBD it must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active chemical compounds present in the Cannabis plant that produce the health benefits associated with CBD. There are two types of cannabinoids; those found in plants (Phyto-cannabinoids) and those naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the human body (Endocannabinoids). Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to promote balance or homeostasis.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD works via interaction with receptors (CB1 & CB2) found in the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). These receptors regulate neuro-hormones in the body that play an active role in physiological processes including mood, memory, pain sensations and appetite.
What is the Difference Between CBD and Hemp?
Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant, but completely absent of intoxicating compounds. CBD is a molecular compound extracted from hemp. Golden Legacy’s CBD is extracted from a proprietary strain of hemp known as PCR Hemp, or Phyto-cannabinoid-rich hemp. This proprietary strain is far richer in CBD, other cannabinoids (not THC), and terpenes than the basic hemp extract used by most CBD producers.
Is CBD Safe?

Golden Legacy products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee they’re free of any harmful contaminants and THC free.

CBD is also used for combating inflammation and maintaining well-functioning joints.
Why Choose CBD Over Medical Marijuana?
Marijuana contains THC, which is the cannabinoid that causes the high feeling.

It can be used while working, driving or undertaking any other activity.

Can CBD be Taken With Other Medications?
Yes, but we always recommend consulting with your doctor prior to taking CBD to be aware of any potential issues.
How Long Does It Take to Feel the Benefits of CBD?
It depends. (I hate that answer too!). Each person’s biochemistry, body mass, etc. is different, so personal results will vary. In general, tinctures and topical creams will be felt sooner because they don’t need to pass through the body’s digestive tract. Edibles and soft gels will generally take longer as they must be digested first. Most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take some time to be detectable — usually half an hour or more.
Are Your Products Organic?
All our hemp is grown organically in the USA and our products contain other organic ingredients.
Should I Take CBD With Food?
While there is no harm in taking CBD on an empty stomach, we do recommend taking our edibles (gummies and soft gels) with food if you are new to CBD until you have an idea of how your body responds to CBD.
How Do I Find the Right Product for Me?
Finding what works for you will take some trial and error because each persons’ response to CBD will be different. In general, people report finding the most benefit from our tinctures and soft gels. For specific problem areas related to joint pain or inflammation, we recommend our topical salve.
