What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It’s one of more than 113 active cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t make you feel “high” and exhibits no effects of abuse or dependence potential. It has been found to offer a vast range of healing properties, most notably to suppress inflammation throughout the body.

Are you sure I will not get "high"?

You won’t get high from our CBD products. Unlike THC, hemp-derived CBD doesn’t get users high. In fact, CBD is not only non-psychoactive, but it’s also anti-psychoactive – supporting mental clarity and focus.

How much CBD do I need? What's my dosage?

The amount of CBD that you need will depend on your particular ailment or need. Your body’s response to CBD dosage is bell-curved. Too little and you won’t feel anything; too much and it’ll dampen the impact. We recommendthat you start with small amounts and gradually increase until you find your body’s ideal dosage. Once accustomed to CBD, generally suggested guidelines for a healthy adult individual are 10-30 mg CBD daily.

Remember: Always seek the advice of your physician before you start taking CBD, especially if you take other medication.

Why are there varying amounts of CBD in different products?

CBD is varied in different products depending on each product’s purpose and application. CBD is adaptive and will affect each individual differently based on their level of inflammation, their body’s naturally occurring cannabinoid level, and their own personal absorption rate.

How do I know if its working?

There are several factors to consider when judging how long it will take for CBD to take effect on your body. The symptoms you are targeting, the method of consumption, and the dosage all play a role.

From our full lineup of CBD products, CBD vaporizers and tinctures offer the fastest method of application. Our CBD Cool Stick and CBD Healing Stick, on the other hand, have a relatively slow and uniform absorption, ensuring that the skin remains moisturized and receives CBD’s multitude of benefits over a longer period of time. CBD Capsules will take effect within an hour or so, depending on when and how much you ate during your last meal.

For optimal effect, use for 30 to 60 consecutive days to build up CBD within your system.

What is your testing protocol?

We vet everything we sell! Team Poplar uses everything – we don’t recommend anything that isn’t in our medicine cabinet. Additionally, we review testing results and administer our own 3rd party test regularly to ensure safety and potency. No matter what, you’ll know what you’re getting.

Our experts review the results and we submit products ourselves for testing. Please email us at info@shop-poplar.com for any additional questions about testing and test results.

I want to know more about CBD!

CBD was first discovered in the 1940s by Roger Adams, a chemistry professor from Illinois. In his research, Adams isolated CBD from hemp but couldn’t determine what exactly he’d found. In addition to CBD, Adams also synthesized analogs of THC and another cannabinoid, showing their relationship to CBD.

In the 1960s, Israeli chemist Raphael Mechoulam and his team took the research further, eventually synthesizing cannabinoids — including CBD, THC and others — and describing their chemical structures for future research. Mechoulam, a professor at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, still studies cannabis to this day.

Where do you ship?

It depends... Hemp is Federally legal WHEN it contains less than .3% THC content by weight and comes from hemp that is classified as legal for academic and educational purposes in registered States. On a State level, legislatures can create and enforce State-specific laws and regulations. The zip code filter on product description pages, ensures we only ship products that are legal in your State.

If items are not yet legal, you can add them to your Wishlist and we will notify you as soon as there is a change! Laws in this space are changing very quickly. We aim to do the heavy lifting - aka research - for you. Unfortunately we are not currently shipping internationally.
