FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over 100 naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant and is the dominant cannabinoid in hemp. Though marijuana comes from the same species, hemp is a different variety because it contains less than 0.3% THC.
Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our bodies. Popular cannabinoids include CBD, THC, CBG, CBC, CBT, and CBN. Still, hundreds or even thousands of other known and unknown phytocannabinoids are believed to take part in the "entourage effect" of CBD.
The human endocannabinoid system consists of tiny receptors that play a key role in regulating mood, pain, and body homeostasis. CBD, whether ingested or applied topically, bonds with these receptors to effect positive changes in the body, reducing pain, inflammation, and anxiety, among other positive benefits.
Yes! The United States Congress in its 2018 Farm Bill, made hemp and hemp-derived products legal to produce, sell, and consume throughout all 50 states. Products must be derived from industrial hemp containing less than 0.3 percent THC. That being said, states can still decide if they want to allow the sale and production of hemp-based products.
Yes they are different. Hemp and Cannabis are both in the Cannabis Sativa family. Hemp plants contain more CBD (cannabidiol), and cannabis plants contain more THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which causes a psychoactive effect. Hemp plants and the CBD derived from them were made federally legal by the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill as they contain .3% or less THC.

The most common starting point is 20-40mg of CBD per dose, but for athletic recovery, consider a higher amount, such as 50-100mg per serving.
A general guideline (start slow and work up to the dosage that feels right for you):
Try a daily dosage of 1mg of CBD for each pound of body weight. Some people take their entire daily dose in one application; others prefer multiple doses throughout the day.
For example: If you weigh 100lbs, aim for 100mg of CBD per day.
Our CBD oil bottles have 3,000mg of CBD, so 30 x 100mg servings per bottle (a full dropper = 1ml = 100mg of CBD , 3,000mg / 30 = 100mg per serving)
Use: Yellow Athletic offers three popular formats: tinctures, gummies, and topicals. Tinctures and gummies are great for overall maintenance, and our cooling and warming topicals are perfect for targeting problem areas.
Important Note: If your doctor hasn't provided a recommended dose and you haven't used CBD before, it's best to start with a reasonable amount and adjust from there. Everyone reacts differently to CBD based on factors such as weight, tolerance, and genetic profile.
Store products in a dry, cool area. Avoid exposure to constant light or excessive heat.
With proper storage, CBD products will maintain their quality for up to two years.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant, which means you will not feel high after use.
Hemp-derived CBD products can contain trace amounts of THC, which may appear on a screening, depending on the lab and testing threshold. Yellow Athletic products comply with the federally mandated THC limit of less than 0.3% by dry weight; however, a positive test, while unlikely, is possible with highly sensitive tests. If you are concerned about drug testing, use our Anytime CBD Oil which is Broad Spectrum and 0% THC.Question
No. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants. It does not produce the "high" commonly associated with THC, the primary psychoactive compound found in marijuana. CBD has not been found to be addictive and is considered to be safe by the World Health Organization (WHO).
For CBD to be effective, it needs to reach your Endocannabinoid system through your bloodstream, a concept known as bioavailability. We recommend using a combination of oral and topical products to attain results. It helps to hold tincture oils under your tongue for one minute before swallowing to optimize absorption.
Full-spectrum hemp provides the entourage effect that includes over 400 compounds such as CBD, CBD minors (such as CBG, CBC, CBN, etc.), terpenes, flavonoids and up to .3% THC.
Broad-spectrum uses various processes to remove THC from the product; many believe this reduces the entourage effect.
CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD and contains no other cannabis plant compounds such as THC, terpenes, or flavonoids and will not provide the entourage effect.
Consistent CBD usage is essential when you're looking for long-term benefits. You will significantly benefit from a marathon rather than a sprint approach, slow and steady. Although, many people notice an immediate benefit! We suggest using our CBD products twice per day for at least one month to see if CBD works for you.
Additionally, CBD strength varies widely from company to company. If you’re not seeing the results you hope for from the products you’re using, we suggest trying our ultra-high potency CBD products. Learn more about how to chose a safe and effective CBD producthere
