A: No.

Explanation: Bobby Rapscallion’s CBD products are not derived from marijuana plants.
Read the full explanation here.

A: No.

Explanation: There is a lot of confusion in the CBD landscape today especially when it comes to terminology. Sadly, manufacturers are cashing in on this confusion by selling hemp-based goods that are not true hemp extract products. When you hear the term “hemp oil” it could either denote hemp seed oil or referring to a hemp-based CBD extract.

A: NO. CBD does not show up on a drug test.

Explanation: Be mindful of the difference in FULL-spectrum and BROAD-spectrum.
Read the full explanation here.

A: Differently for some.

Explanation: CBD has such diverse effects because of its interaction with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

ANSWER: CBD is a cannabis-derived compound, studied for its wide range of potential wellness benefits.

EXPLANATION: Even though CBD has become extremely popular in the mainstream media, there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding what the plant-based compound can and can’t do—making it difficult for even the savviest health-conscious consumers to navigate.

Bobby Rapscallion is all about delivering transparency and setting a standard in the CBD industry, providing consumers with the information needed to ensure they’re purchasing the right hemp-based products to support their health goals.

CBD belongs to a class of phytochemicals called cannabinoids which are concentrated in hair-like, resin crystals speckled on the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant.

While CBD is present in both marijuana and hemp strains, it’s most abundant in hemp plants, and it’s harvested for its benefits of relaxation and optimizing one’s overall health.

Unlike CBD’s counterpart, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD on its own does not produce intoxicating effects.

The CBD and THC levels distinguish the type of cannabis Sativa plant. In the United States, any cannabis plant with more than 0.3% THC by dried weight is considered marijuana.

Hemp-derived CBD is federally legal and can be found in products from oils, capsules, gummies, creams, teas, and more, making the benefits of CBD easier to consume and enjoy.

What Are The Benefits of CBD And Other Cannabis-Derived Compounds?

ANSWER: A BUNCH…but it can vary from person to person.

EXPLANATION: CBD has become a go-to for natural health-seekers to support homeostasis (balance) for optimal function — but it’s not the only cannabis-derived compound with health benefits.

Minor cannabinoids including cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabinol (CBN) are gaining more appreciation with new research emerging about their unique effects.

Cannabis experts and many health professionals agree that the best way to consume CBD and other cannabinoids is as full spectrum extracts. When all these cannabinoids work together in a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum hemp supplement, they leverage a phenomenon called the entourage effect that makes the compounds more effective and well-rounded.

You can think of the effects of a single cannabinoid versus the entourage effect like a solo vocalist versus an acapella group.

On its own, one cannabinoid can produce some health benefits, but when they work together, you get a richer and more dynamic harmony. Research promotes the benefits of hemp products — like our pure CBD — and our products reflect hemp’s natural components with near-perfect accuracy.

Among the diverse benefits that CBD has to offer, CBD devotees express enthusiasm over its ability to invoke a sense of calm, aid post-workout recovery, and support a healthy sleep cycle.

Bobby Rapscallion offers THC-free broad-spectrum extracts, rich in CBD content and hemp’s full variety of beneficial plant compounds.

focus

CBD FOR FOCUS & MANAGEMENT OF EVERYDAY STRESSORS

CBD may help to support mental focus and productivity. When our bodies are in a state of high stress, our ability to maintain concentration on given tasks is near impossible.

Whole hemp extracts also contain a range of aromatic botanical compounds (terpenes) that contribute to CBD’s effect profile. Terpenes such as alpha-pinene (also found in pine needles) and limonene (citrus) have been shown to positively affect our overall mood and uplift our mental alertness.

sleeping1

CBD FOR A HEALTHY SLEEP CYCLE

CBD’s calming properties may help to wind you down from your day and prepare your body for rest since the endocannabinoid system plays a key role in regulating our sleep cycle.

Taking CBD oil as part of your bedtime regimen, alongside other healthy sleep habits, can help you create a sustainable sleep routine to achieve their commended eight hours of sleep each night.

CBD is not a sedative, which means you can wake up the next day feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.

CBD FOR NORMAL RECOVERY POST-WORKOUT

CBD has become many people’s gym-bag staple.

You can use it as a muscle rub for targeted benefits and help to support your hard-at-work endocannabinoid system.

Active individuals are prone to soreness and joint and muscle overuse. Cannabidiol is a gentle and natural compound that boosts the body’s self-healing mechanisms by helping to support normal inflammatory function through the ECS, so you can get back to the gym sooner and safely.

Is CBD marijuana?
ANSWER: No.

 

EXPLANATION: Bobby Rapscallion’s CBD products are not derived from marijuana plants.

While hemp and marijuana are technically the same species of plant, Cannabis Sativa, and you can harvest CBD from marijuana, hemp and marijuana have differing phytochemical makeups. What distinguishes the two plants are their CBD and THC content. Hemp has a high CBD content and must have no more than 0.3% THC.

Any plant over 0.3% THC is considered a marijuana plant in the United States.

All Bobby Rapscallion CBD products are hemp-derived, containing high-potency CBD and a diverse cannabinoid. For those looking for a complete THC-free experience, we offer broad-spectrum CBD extracts that undergo further distillation processes to isolate and remove THC from the extracts. That means there is 0% THC in our broad-spectrum CBD products.

Isn’t hemp oil and CBD oil the same thing?

ANSWER: NOEXPLANATION: There is a lot of confusion in the CBD landscape today especially when it comes to terminology. Sadly, manufacturers are cashing in on this confusion by selling hemp-based goods that are not true hemp extract products. When you hear the term “hemp oil” it could either denote hemp seed oil or refer to a hemp-based CBD extract

Hemp seed oil is a dietary oil that’s rich in omega-3. It’s consumed as cooking oil or used as an ingredient in the skin and beauty industry. Hemp seed oil is made by pressing the seeds of the plant to extract the oil. Since cannabis seeds do not contain cannabinoids, there are no traces of CBD or THC.

Hemp extract is harvested from the resin found on the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant and is rich in cannabinoids and terpenes. These raw extracts are bitter and potent, making them extremely difficult to use as a pure extract, which is why it’s often combined with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil, olive oil, or MCT coconut oil to make dosing and palatability more enjoyable.

We create all current Bobby Rapscallion products by extracting cannabinoids from raw hemp for a THC-free broad-spectrum extract. From here, we create signature CBD products that are innovative and effective.

We also encourage you to see the lab reports of our products. While sharing independent lab testing is not yet a requirement in the industry, it’s becoming a standard for products containing cannabis compounds. We include access to these reports for each of our batches that are in circulation because we want to empower each of our customers.

It’s no secret that the cannabis market is full of deception, which is why referring to a product’s certificate of analysis (COA) from a third-party lab is so important. They can tell you exactly what’s in the CBD product you purchased from us. Everything from cannabinoid and terpene profiles, to residual solvents (from extraction), and pesticides or other potential contaminants from farming and processing are listed with percentages and dose amounts.

Does CBD Show Up On A Drug Test?

ANSWER: NO. CBD does not show up on a drug test.

EXPLANATION: Be mindful of the difference between FULL-spectrum and BROAD-spectrum.

Full-spectrum extracts contain trace amounts of THC. It’s not enough to produce any intoxicating effects. However, if taken in large doses over time, THC metabolites can build up in the body. This is one of the reasons why (at this point) Bobby Rapscallion will only offer THC-FREE Broad Spectrum products. We wanted to establish a line that anyone can benefit from CBD without a trace and drug test concerns applied to their lifestyle. This doesn’t mean we won’t eventually have some full-spectrum products, but for now, we’re focused on broad-spectrum.

People may fail drug tests from consuming poppy seeds just as you may receive a false positive when consuming hemp products. The chances are low but it may increase if you consume large portions each day over time.

While drug tests aren’t looking for CBD metabolites, as it’s a legal substance, drug tests may be triggered from the trace amount of THC metabolites in your system. Our THC-free broad-spectrum CBD products are the best option for those that have concerns about this and how it may be counter-productive to their lifestyle.

How Does CBD Oil Work?

ANSWER: Differently for some.

EXPLANATION: CBD has diverse effects because of its interaction with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Every mammal has an ECS made up of a network of neurotransmitters, receptors, and enzymes throughout the body that regulates homeostasis, i.e. internal balance.

If the name of this system sounds familiar, it’s no coincidence. The ECS was discovered thanks to researchers investigating the interaction of cannabis plants within our bodies.

It turns out, that these active cannabis-derived compounds behave similarly to the neurotransmitters in the ECS called endocannabinoids (endo = within).

When we take a CBD supplement, we’re essentially enriching our levels of endocannabinoids that support this complex system’s efforts to keep us in good health by facilitating messaging signals that regulate our vital systems.

What Will It Feel Like When I Take CBD Oil?

ANSWER: Differently for some.

EXPLANATION: The most important thing to understand is that CBD affects everyone differently — just as no two bodies are the same, no two people will react to CBD the same.

CBD works intimately with the body’s ECS and has a balancing effect on your internal chemistry. That effect will look different based on your genetics, age, the current level of your health, and other internal and external factors.

Some individuals report feeling energized or focused after taking CBD, while others report feeling ready for bed. However, one of the most commonly mentioned feelings that people experience once they take CBD is a sense of calmness.

In short, there is no way of predicting how CBD will feel for you.

DOES CBD HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

ANSWER: For some, it may.

EXPLANATION: When you buy CBD from a reputable, trustworthy brand, like Bobby Rapscallion, you can trust that you’re getting a high-quality product.

However, as with any dietary supplement, there is always the risk of an adverse reaction and/or interaction with medication.

Consult with your physician before you begin taking CBD to ensure it’s the right fit for you.

While CBD is considered a safe compound, even at high doses, it may produce some uncomfortable side effects including, nausea, lethargy, stomach aches, and dry mouth. However, these adverse effects are temporary and should subside within 4–6 hours.

DOES CBD MAKE YOU Hungry?

ANSWER: No.

EXPLANATION: CBD doesn’t give you the munchies like THC is known to do.

Because CBD has a more balancing effect on the endocannabinoid system, it tends to support the body’s sensitivity to our hunger and fullness levels. If you’re not on a regular eating schedule, CBD may help to balance your appetite control signals.

HOW LONG DOES CBD STAY IN YOUR SYSTEM?

ANSWER: Up to 6 hours

EXPLANATION: Cannabidiol can remain active in your body for up to 6 hours, and the elimination half-life of edible CBD (how long it takes to break down by half) is roughly 1–2 days.

This means that you can expect to feel the effects of CBD for approximately 6 hours, but CBD and other cannabinoids get stored in fat cells as your body metabolizes them.

It can take up to a week for the compounds to completely leave your system, but this length of time may depend on your doses, frequency of use, and metabolism.

DOES CBD HAVE ANY AGE REQUIREMENT/LIMIT?

ANSWER: 18 and older.

EXPLANATION: CBD’s been shown to be a healthy, all-natural alternative for all ages. 

However, CBD is most commonly used by adults who are 18 and older. If you wish to use CBD for a child under the age of 18, consult a medical professional to ensure it’s a safe compound for your child.

HOW DO I PICK A CBD PRODUCT AND HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

ANSWER: If inexperienced start low.

EXPLANATION: If you’re not experienced with CBD, when it comes to picking your first CBD product with us, we recommend starting low.

Finding the right dose for you will take some time to perfect, however, we always recommend starting low and going slow.

Follow the instructions on the product packaging for dosage during the first 4-6 weeks and determine if either a higher or the current dose product is right for you based on your experience. Try taking CBD daily. Consistent dosage is the best way to experience the beneficial effects of CBD.

IS THE TYPE OF CBD EXTRACTION IMPORTANT?

ANSWER: Absolutely!

EXPLANATION: The extraction process directly affects the quality of your CBD product.

 

The two most popular industrial CBD extraction methods are carbon dioxide (CO2) and ethanol extraction.

CO2 extraction uses CO2, compressed to a supercritical point where it behaves more like a liquid than a gas. If you recognize this chemical abbreviation, it’s because we breathe CO2 out of our very own lungs.

The benefit of using CO2 extraction is that it does not leave any harmful solvent residues like butane hash oil extraction (BHO) methods. CO2 extraction is considered the gold standard for yielding high-quality, clean hemp extract, and it’s much better for the environment and for the people working with it as CO2 is non-toxic.

Ethanol extraction is another popular and generally safe extraction method used in the health and cosmetic industry, but it is a more time-consuming process.

Supercritical CO2 is used for all Bobby Rapscallion products. We have independent labs where we submit our batches to confirm that our extracts are free from solvent contamination, pesticides, and have an extensive cannabinoid and terpene profile.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BROAD-SPECTRUM AND FULL-SPECTRUM CBD?

ANSWER: The biggest distinction between full-spectrum or broad-spectrum cannabis extracts is the THC content.

EXPLANATION: Full-spectrum contains as close to the full range of the original hemp plant’s cannabinoid and terpene profile. Broad-spectrum CBD oils are still rich in terpenes and cannabinoids, but the extract undergoes extra steps in its processing to remove all traces of THC.

As long as you’re looking to shop for hemp-derived CBD products, they can only contain up to 0.3% THC, which isn’t enough to produce any intoxicating effects (even at high doses). However, if you undergo drug testing for work, the trace amounts of THC may result in a build-up of metabolites in your system that may trigger a positive result.

In these instances, we’re created THC-free broad-spectrum CBD oil and other popular CBD products.

Whether you choose a broad-spectrum or a full-spectrum product, you’ve made a great lifestyle choice that works for you.

Both extracts feature a wide variety of cannabinoids in hemp, making them capable of the entourage effect: the synergistic quality of hemp’s cannabinoids working together for a stronger effect.

We offer CBD products that are as close to nature as it gets.

Each step in our unique process from seed to bottling is integral to creating a truly unrivaled hemp experience that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
