Does CBD actually work?
Figure I would start with this question, right? CBD does and can work for MANY people for a wide range of ailments ranging from anxiety all the way to some of our customers using it for cancer treatment (post and pre). Once you do your research you will quickly understand how CBD works with your endocannabinoid system. Full disclosure: just because CBD worked for someone you know with the same ailment does not always mean it will work for you. There are many people that do not get the relief that others do from taking CBD. In our experience, if you dose properly and get the correct product to begin, then you have a significantly higher chance of success.
CBD interacts with a biological system in your body called the (ECS) endocannabinoid system. The ECS was recently discovered back in the early '90s. The system is composed of endocannabinoids which are essentially transmitters that bind to receptors all over your body (CB1 and CB2 receptors). The ECS is in charge of regulating the body's symptoms such as blood sugar levels, temperature, PH, nutrient transport, and other things. Essentially it's in charge of keeping our body in homeostasis.
What is CBD made from?
CBD is a Phytocannabinoid derived from Cannabis. Keep in mind Cannabis can be either marijuana or hemp. At Chilliwack CBD all of our products are derived from hemp. None of our products contain greater than .03% THC, which means there is absolutely no chance of any psychoactive effects.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It's one of over 130 Phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD and THC are two of the most known and researched Phytocannabinoids which is why you hear about them the most. Other important Phytocannabinoids are: CBG, CBN and CBC just to name a few.
Does CBD get you high?
CBD on its own will not give you any psychoactive effects. Many people have an assumption that because CBD comes from the cannabis plant (remember hemp or marijuana) then it must have psychoactive effects like THC. This is not true because CBD does not have the same mind-altering effects like it's cousin, THC. CBD has actually shown to reduce the "high" effects of someone who has THC in their body already.
How much CBD should I take?
It really depends on a few factors such as weight, ailment, your own biological tolerance to CBD, etc. We recommend when first starting to use CBD, use very little to begin with to test sensitivity and to ensure no adverse reactions (very rarely the case). Once you test sensitivity you can move forward increasing your dosage over time (days/weeks). The goal is to find your happy dosage, the dosage that gives you relief without wasting product. More is not better in the case of CBD. This answer deserves a more in-depth answer which you can find on a blog article we wrote.

How to use CBD oil for pain?
If you are experiencing pain and using CBD then use the method I described above. It really depends on a few factors such as weight, ailment, your own biological tolerance to CBD, etc. We recommend when starting to use CBD use very little, to begin with to test sensitivity to ensure no adverse reactions (very rarely the case). Once you test sensitivity you can move forward increasing your dosage over time (days/weeks). The goal is to find your happy dosage, the dosage that gives you relief without wasting product. More is not better in the case of CBD. Pain can be different for many people (systemically or topically etc.) This answer deserves a more in-depth answer which you can find on a blog article we wrote.

What Is CBD Isolate?
While you navigate the website you might see us mention that a product only contains CBD Isolate. This simply means that the product ONLY contains CBD and no other Phytocannabinoids such as (THC, CBC,CBG, CBN) which are also very beneficial when used all together. This is called the entourage effect. So rest assured if you ONLY want CBD in your product and nothing else, then CBD Isolate would be a good product for you. We have a great blog which you can read that goes into detail about the difference and benefits of CBD Isolate and Full-Spectrum CBD here: https://www.chilliwackcbd.ca/blogs/news/cbd-isolate-vs-full-spectrum-cbd
What Is Full-Spectrum CBD?
A full spectrum option is that which contains not only CBD but ALL the other benefits of using full-plant matter. Cannabinoids ( CBD, CBG, CBN, THC) are only just a few of the cannabinoids that we can benefit from. Not only are there many different cannabinoids but plants have something else called Terpenes (it's the scent that all plants have). Terpenes also have benefits (think about lavender, ginger, etc.). When all these cannabinoids and terpenes work together in our body, this is called the "Entourage Effect". It's believed that this is the best option for a CBD product. Because all of our products are derived from hemp, which naturally is very low in THC, this works great because all of our products are non-intoxicating and no products contain more(or even close) to .03% THC.
Does CBD Oil Have Any Side Effects?
Overall from all the customers that have purchased from us, I have very rarely heard of side effects. That being said there are certain people that CBD does give some side effects to. Some side effects that we know of are: dizziness, hallucinations, low blood pressure, nausea, and sleepiness. Although rare, research has shown that some people may experience side effects when using CBD.
Does CBD Work For Everyone?
The answer is no, CBD does not work for everyone. There may be different reasons why CBD did not work for you or someone that you may know. Many different factors can go into finding out why CBD has no effect on some people. Some factors could include: proper dosing, amount of CBD being consumed, Type of CBD purchased, method of dosing CBD etc. Research has shown that CBD interacts differently person to person.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana are considered Cannabis. Marijuana is a cannabis plant which is known for its psychoactive properties. This is because marijuana has high amounts of THC content and low CBD content. Hemp, on the other hand, has high amounts of CBD content and low to trace amounts of THC content.. Hemp is not typically the plant that you associate with getting a high because of its very low THC content. This is the reason all of our products are made from hemp. At Chilliwack CBD we specialize in CBD and not THC. All of our products will contain between 0% and .03% THC. This amount of THC is far below the value you would need to get any pschoactive feeling. The presence of THC and other phytocannabinoids are important though for the "entourage effect".
When you use CBD what does it feel like?
If you think you are going to get a mild "high" feeling or any intoxication feeling, you would be wrong. CBD creates a state of relaxation and calmness without any psychoactive effects.
Which Ailments Can CBD Be Used For?
The section below will eventually be used to directly link to every ailment and talk more in-depth about that particular ailment. We will also link to studies/research on that specific ailment. It is important to note that we do not make any medical claims.
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
High Blood Pressure
General Health (prophylactics
