WHAT IS CBD?
Hemp produces more than 80 different naturally occurring phytocannabinoids (chemical compounds) with the most prominent being Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system which is the series of receptors that regulate relaxation, pain, sleeping, mood, the immune system, memory, stress response, and other important functions.
WILL CBD GET ME "HIGH"?
Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effect and does not get you “high”. Hemp and marijuana are both cannabis sativa plants, however, marijuana has been bred to contain high levels of THC for its psychoactive effects.
WHY TAKE CBD?
CBD effects everyone differently but we’ve found that our customers most commonly take Pacific Daze CBD to help them reduce their stress and anxiety levels, improve sleep, ease everyday aches and pains, manage chronic pain, reduce inflammation, calm the nervous system and improve digestive issues.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT PACIFIC DAZE CBD?
Our CBD is extracted from industrial hemp and has a full spectrum profile, including CBN, CBG and over 40 naturally occurring terpenes. Why does this matter? It’s called the “Entourage Effect” and it happens when the presence of all other naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes found in the cannabis plant work together to increase CBD’s effectiveness.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS INDUSTRIAL HEMP OR CANNABIS DERIVED?
This is where a lot of confusion lies and we’re happy to clear it up for you. The U.S. Farm Bill Sec. 7606 defines industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC. We use a unique strain of hemp that was specifically bred from an ACDC strain of highly medicinal cannabis. The genetics were then evolved over a 7 year period in which the highest CBD and lowest THC plants were identified and cross bred. Because our plants naturally produce less than 0.3% THC, we are able to register our strain with the Colorado Department of Agriculture as industrial hemp, which allows us to sell all over the U.S.
It is important to remember that not all hemp is created equal and not all CBD is the same. True industrial hemp, characterized by its tall stocks, is grown for its fibers which are the strongest plant fibers in nature. Industrial hemp is also grown for its seed which contain essential amino acids but no phytocannabinoids. This type of industrial hemp contains very few phytocannabinoids and limited amounts of other synergistic compounds. Our hemp, although registered as industrial hemp, is not derived from genetic industrial hemp, but rather from a unique medicinal hemp variety, therefore providing the real health benefits of medical cannabis without the psychoactive effect of THC.
WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR CBD?
We carefully source our hemp from a farm in Colorado. Although we are not yet organically certified, our hemp is grown using only organic practices and is in the process of obtaining certification. All of our products are made from non-GMO, pesticide free, industrial hemp.
WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF YOUR INGREDIENTS?
We use only quality ingredients (no GMOs, no pesticides and organic farming practices), clean and simple. Our tincture is made with just MCT (medium-chain triglycerides from coconuts) oil, hemp oil, and a touch of natural orange for a flavor that’s light and delicious. Our capsules are made with hemp oil in a vegetarian gelatin capsule.
We’re huge fans of MCT oil as a carrier oil for CBD not only because it’s super tasty, but because this healthy fatty acid has numerous health benefits related to heart and brain health. Medium-chain fats are easily digested for quick absorption and therefore accelerate the effects of CBD. Additionally, MCT oil contains antioxidant properties, which further supports CBD’s inflammatory benefits.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE DROPS AND THE CAPSULES? HOW DO I KNOW WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
We suggest our sublingual drops for on demand relief from everyday anxiety or aches and pains. The drops are wonderful for when you want to be able to adjust the dose, depending on your needs. Try holding the drops under your tongue for 10-30 seconds before swallowing for best absorption.
Capsules take longer to be absorbed into the body but can be a more convenient and regimented way to add CBD to your daily routine. For those with chronic pain, inflammation, or digestive issues, we recommend giving our capsules a try.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
We suggest using our products as you would a dietary supplement. Supplement dosing is personal and based on your specific needs. Start at a lower dose and you should find that over time you will find the ideal dose that works best for you.
As always, it is always important to check with your doctor before introducing a new supplement into your diet.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
Nope! In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) recently reported that they have found no adverse health outcomes for CBD and that it is safe and well tolerated for humans (and animals). While there are no known side effects, we recommended that you start with a lower dose and then gradually increase your daily intake to monitor how you feel. It’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor about the optimal serving size that’s best for you.
CAN I TAKE CBD WITH PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS?
As with any dietary supplement, we recommend consulting your doctor prior to adding CBD to your daily routine.
HOW DO YOU TEST YOUR PRODUCTS?
All of our products are third party tested for pesticides, potency and quality by independent labs in Colorado and in Oregon. Testing them twice allows us to guarantee consistent, pure products that you can count on. We are happy to share our testing results with you upon request!
WILL YOUR PRODUCT SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
While there is zero THC in our products, there are different ways that companies test for drugs. Please consult with your doctor and/or employer if this is a concern.
ARE CBD HEMP PRODUCTS LEGAL?
Our CBD is extracted from industrial hemp (not marijuana) and is therefore legal in all 50 states. We encourage you to double check with the local legislation in your area if you have any concerns.
WHY DO YOU ONLY ACCEPT DEBIT CARDS FOR ONLINE PURCHASES?
Due to Federal banking restrictions, we have limited transactions to debit card purchases only and have decided to hold off on accepting credit cards until further notice.
