Q: What's the difference between Cubbington's Cabinet tinctures and Cubbington's Cabinet Pet Pantry tinctures?
A: We use the same highest-quality CBD and organic MCT oil in both lines. The only difference is that we add some yummy flavors to our Pet Pantry line that we know pets love! Some of the humans around here have an affinity for either the P'Nut Budder or Chik'n-licious flavors, and we don't judge! Likewise, you can also give your Cubbington Cabinet tincture to your pet. (Cubbington and Zada love all tinctures!) We suggest you ask your vet before giving them any Nighttime formula.
Q: What is the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD Isolate?
A: Full spectrum CBD products contain all of the natural phytochemicals found in hemp plants, including terpenes, CBD, other cannabinoids, essential oils, and a miniscule amount of THC – 0.3% or less (this is the legal limit for hemp-derived CBD products). All the natural elements work together to amplify potential health benefits in a process nicknamed the entourage effect.
Broad spectrum CBD products contain all the natural phytochemicals found in hemp plants except for THC. Broad spectrum CBD products can experience the entourage effect without the addition of THC.
CBD Isolate is considered the “purest” form of CBD, as it is extracted from the plant and completely isolated from other ingredients. There is no entourage effect with CBD Isolate.
Q: Are there any known drug interactions?
A: Peer reviewed research involving CBD and cannabinoids is relatively new; however, there is some early research indicating that any drug metabolized by CYP450 enzymes could potentially interact with CBD. According to the Indiana University Department of Medicine, drugs known to use the CYP450 system include:
- HMG CoA reductase inhibitors
- Calcium channel blockers
- HIV antivirals
- Immune modulators
- Beta blockers
- Angiotension II blockers
- Oral hypoglycemic agents
This list does not include all of the potential medications impacted by cannabidiol. Nor will every medication in the categories contained on this list will cause an interaction. For these reasons, you should consult with a medical professional before supplementing with CBD oil.
There are certain medications, known as “prodrugs,” that need to be metabolized to produce the therapeutic compound. In other words, you ingest an inactive compound and once in the body, it is processed into the active drug. If this processing is dependent on CYP3A4 (part of the larger CYP450 system), then inhibitors can result in too little active drug in the body for the desired therapeutic effect.
If you are worried that your CYP450 pathway may not be functioning properly, physicians can test the system to ensure that the medications you take are metabolizing as expected. (source)
Q: Will I get "high" from Cubbington's Cabinet products?
A: No. You will not get "high" from any of Cubbington's Cabinet products.
CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, a type of natural compound found in cannabis and hemp. Another well-known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which produces what many consider to be a "high", or an altered psychoactive state characterized by euphoria, pleasure, or heightened sensory perception. CBD does not cause a high like THC.
Q: Is there any danger of failing a drug test if I take Cubbington's Cabinet products?
A: All Cubbington's Cabinet brand products are currently THC free, meaning the THC count is so microscopic that it's non-detectable by current measurement capabilities. Consuming such products should not impact a drug test. For other brands we sell that contain full spectrum CBD (up to 0.3% THC), there is a risk of testing positive if you consume a large enough amount of product or take the product regularly and have a slow metabolism. Please ask one of our shop associates for more information.
Q: Do you sell . . . . ?
A: If we do not, talk to us! We are always looking for new high-quality CBD products to put on our shelves. Suggestions and feedback are encouraged! Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
