Cruz Hemp CBD
What is a Cannabinoid?
Cannabinoids are molecular compounds naturally produced by the hemp plant, also found in other plants and inside our bodies. Cannabinoids are classified as fatty compounds that play vital biological roles.
What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating, non-psychoactive cannabinoid component of the hemp plant extracted from the leaves, stalks, and flowers. Cruz Hemp CBD is extracted from the hemp plant into a purified CBD “Isolate”. We need more research but CBD may be prove to have far reaching benefits in healthcare. journalofcannabinoidmedicine.com/this-is-how-cbd-works-to-heal-your-body/
What is the difference between CBD oil and isolate?
CBD Oil, or “Distillate”, is a more crude form of hemp extract that generally contains both THC and CBD.
CBD Isolate is a non-intoxicating component from industrial hemp with non-detectable levels of THC. It is a result of highly purified CBD. Isolate is typically white in a crystal form. CBD Isolate contains no THC.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Discovered in the 1990s, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system within our bodies composed of neurotransmitters to which endocannabinoids bind. Endo literally means internal or within. Hence, your body naturally creates and utilizes cannabinoids, your endocannabinoids. These molecules bind with receptor proteins which are present throughout the central nervous system including the brain. Our bodies make endogenous cannabinoids that interact with these receptors. Phytocannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp are very similar and act in complementary ways. Many people don’t get all the cannabinoids they need, so we’re trying to fill the demand.

Can Cruz Hemp CBD products be used with my prescription medications?
You are advised to consult with your health care practitioner prior to use. Cruz Hemp’s CBD Isolate is a natural purified hemp extract with no THC.
How much CBD should I use?
Because each person is unique, there is no way to set a predetermined amount. We recommend starting by applying our products in a single application per day. If desired, gradually increase your usage until you find the rate that is right for you. As always, it is a good idea to consult your healthcare practitioner before using a new skin care product.
Does a Cruz Hemp Roll-On contain THC?
No. It contains pure cannabidiol (CBD) extracted from Hemp with no THC and a blend of other high quality natural ingredients.
Can I fail a drug test with the use of Cruz Hemp Products?
Generally No. Cruz hemp CBD Isolate does not contain detectable amounts of THC. Our products are manufactured using purified CBD Isolate extracted from natural hemp. If you have any concerns, please consult with a medical professional prior to purchasing our products.
Will I Get "High" from Using Cruz Hemp CBD Products?
Cruz Hemp CBD Isolate is a non-intoxicating, non-psychoactive component from industrial hemp and does not contain any THC. There’s no “high” or euphoric effect as a result of using hemp-derived CBD.
Hemp farming and Production are great for the environment
There are few crops that are as environmentally friendly as hemp. According to Canada’s Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food, hemp matures in just 3 to 4 months and absorbs carbon dioxide 5 times more efficiently than trees. Unlike cotton, which requires lots of water and heavy use of chemical fertilizers and toxic pesticides, hemp can be grown organically without the use of chemicals or toxins and without the need for excessive water. It is also great for the environment because it returns nitrogen and nutrients to soil “Nitrogen Fixing”. Hemp’s long roots actually aerate soil and can help to prevent both soil erosion and mudslides. Another benefit for farmers is that it can thrive in almost any climate and any type of soil. It is no wonder that the L.A. Times’ tip to American farmers is to grow hemp.
Buying Hemp products is legal in all 50 states under United States Federal Law.
Hemp and hemp derived products are legal in all 50 states under federal law pursuant to the 2018 Farm Bill. State regulations of hemp are in their infancy, but many states already have thriving hemp farming communities. Consequently, it is important for you to understand the laws in your state. Unlike Cannabis, which is still a Schedule 1 Substance, Hemp does not produce any meaningful amount of the psychoactive substance THC. In fact, the USDA has stated that hemp products must contain less than 0.3%THC. The FDA’s recent approval of a product containing CBD shows strong support for the future of hemp products in the United States.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is found in hemp
Clinical and scientific researchers have discovered that the herbal extract CBD is useful for a healthful body and sense of well-being
Hemp has been used therapeutically for thousands of years, but the scientific community has only begun to extensively research it over the last few decades. Through this research, we have learned that CBD is one of the compounds in hemp that may have an important role to play in healthcare. CBD is noted as a cannabinoid with great potential healthcare uses without the psychoactive effect (the “high”) of THC.

Cruz Hemp CBD Roll-Ons contain 500mg of CBD per 10ml bottle.
Where do people most commonly apply Cruz Hemp Roll-Ons?

What does “third party tested” really mean?
Third party testing is a common term used to communicate that external laboratories are utilized to provide independent test results. This offers a level of assurance that testing results are not biased. Additionally, when third party laboratories are used, many companies can compare testing results to further develop testing methods for their products. For industries which are in their infancy, like the CBD industry, this is important to establish reliable testing methods, and also to verify product quality.
