Frequently Asked Questions
CBD (or Cannabidiol) is one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in Cannabis plants. It interacts with your body's natural endocannabinoid system by helping it to achieve the desirable physical, mental, and spiritual levels in humans and animals.
All products offered by The Ghetto Apothecary are derived from Industrial Hemp. By law, our products have .3% or less THC- trace amounts that do not produce the “high” feeling often associated with Cannabis. Our CBD is isolated from Hemp and is non-psychoactive. Your new favorite feel- good green!
Your body naturally produces CBD. When you take CBD, you are supplementing the deficiency of naturally occurring Cannabinoids in your endocannabinoid system (ECS), therefore bringing the body back to homeostasis or stable equilibrium. Many have reported feeling relief when taking CBD to support:
Anxiety and Depression
Supports Withdrawal Symptoms
Our products are made with CBD isolate, the purest form of CBD, and containing no other Cannabinoids. Our CBD and our finished products are tested at a third party laboratory for potency, as well as purity. Our Hemp is grown responsibly in North Carolina.
The Ghetto Apothecary is Black-owned & Women Led. We champion for the destigmatization of Hemp use and its value as an effective approach to Self- Care and Mental Wealth. Our CBD products was cultivated and packaged with your Wellness in mind.
We have both Full Spectrum CBD products and CBD isolate products. Full Spectrum products are packaged with black labels and Isolate products are with white labels.
Our CBD products, in fact, are fully legal to purchase in most states. The rules differ from state to state, as each one writes its own legislation regarding the substance. For example, while CBD is legal in North Carolina, CBD products are unavailable in Alabama unless the person suffers from debilitating seizures. In reality, very few states disallow CBD altogether.
This patchwork of regulations occurred because the federal government contradicts itself in its laws. The federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) classifies all “marijuana extract” as a Schedule I, highly-addictive substance with no known medical value. However, the Farm Bill greenlights extracts that come from what’s called “industrial hemp,” which is cannabis sativa bred to have .3% or less THC (what gets you high). The Ghetto Apothecary CBD is derived from industrial hemp.
If you are unsure if CBD is legal in your state, you can find a great law tracker here courtesy of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
Most drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not CBD. Our CBD is isolated which contains zero THC, and therefore will not result in a failed drug test that tests for THC.
