FAQ

Does The US Government Have A Patent On Cannabinoids?

YES it is true! The patent makes certain detailed claims that we are not permitted to reprint here. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services Patent number 6,630,507, “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism.….. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.”

In fact the US government has filed a series of patents on CBD going all the way back to the 1940’s, and has sparked interest among independent researchers. Hundreds of research papers published since then have been linked back to this US government patent.

How Do I Judge How Much TurboCBD™ To Consume Compared To Competitor Products?

Many factors control individual responses to the ingredients we employ. However, our TurboCBD™ capsules are differentiated relative to many competitor products because of the benefits of our patented process described above.

We have provided suggested usage information on each bottle of our TurboCBD™ capsules to aid in beginning and adjusting usage daily as needed, but recommend that you consult your doctor or health practitioner should you desire additional guidance.

How Do The Effects of Turbocbd™ Compare To Pulmonary Cannabinoid Administration?

Many people seek the effects and benefits of cannabinoids through smoking or vaping because, generally speaking, this is regarded as a fast acting and high bioabsorption route of administration. Our technology was specifically designed to offer consumers a viable and healthy alternative to smoking/vaping that has been scientifically tested to amplify the rapidity and extent of intestinal cannabinoid bioabsorption in order to compete with that of pulmonary administration.

It is important to note, however, that our TurboCBD™ capsules offer the benefits of full spectrum hemp oil but DO NOT contain marijuana or its derivatives, nor THC other than in tiny trace amounts that have no measurable effects as described above. Therefore, our TurboCBD™ capsules are for those seeking the benefits of hemp oil specifically.

How Long Do The Effects Of TurboCBD™ Last?

Many factors control individual responses to the ingredients we employ. However, in accordance with regulations we cannot make health claims regarding cannabinoids.

We have provided suggested usage information on each bottle of our TurboCBD™ capsules to aid in beginning and adjusting usage daily as needed, but recommend that you consult your doctor or health practitioner should you desire additional guidance.

Is Hemp Oil Legal?

Agricultural hemp is legal in more than 30 countries around the world, and cannabidiol is legal in many countries as well. Imported hemp oil extracted from agricultural or industrial hemp, containing high concentrations of cannabidiol, is federally legal in the United States provided the THC level is below regulatory limits. Imported hemp oil is the source Lexaria Energy uses for its products. Customers have the responsibility of remaining in compliance with all local, regional and federal regulations wherever you are located.

Is it Safe?

We use only the finest quality, organic full spectrum hemp oil to produce our products, processed without the use of any harmful solvents or chemicals. We subject our products to strict quality control testing to ensure batch to batch consistency and adherence to strict quality testing guidelines for heavy metals or pathogens to rule out contamination. Hemp oil is a very well tolerated substance in humans, with no known direct toxicities.

What About Interactions Between Hemp Oil And My Medications?

We are not aware of any complications, however, you should consult your doctor or health care practitioner about all possible drug, vitamin or substance interactions, or any other medical questions you may have.

What About Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)?

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the principle psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that produces a psychoactive reaction. TurboCBD™ DOES NOT contain THC other than tiny trace amounts that have no measurable effects.

We pride ourselves on our testing process to ensure that our products are always within regulatory limits when it comes to THC content. Many countries around the world – and states within America – are using a range between 0.1% and 0.3% THC as the upper limit for compliance with regulations, and our products fall well below these limits with respect to any measurable THC content.

What Are The Medical Effects Of Cannabinoids?

There are thousands of research papers that have been published by medical experts and others, detailing their findings when investigating cannabinoids and their possible medical effects. In accordance with regulations we cannot make health claims regarding cannabinoids. Please refer to trusted educational sources available in the general published scientific literature about cannabinoids and their benefits. Regulations only permit us to send links to research and our testimonial list by private email request.

What is Cannabidol (CBD)?

Cannabinoids are a class of compounds found in several species of plants, like some echinacea species, and more abundantly, in agricultural (or industrial) hemp. Cannabidiol (CBD) can comprise 35% or more of the plant’s extracts as one of the principal cannabinoid compounds therein responsible for the benefits of hemp oil and its actions on the human endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids can even be found in tiny quantities in Broccoli, Kale and other common foods!

What Kind Of Testing/Analysis Is Performed On Your Products?

We have a very strict, internal quality assurance system, and we have third party laboratories analyze all our raw material, intermediate and final products for cannabinoid potency, bacterial, mycotoxin (fungal) and microbial content.

What Makes TurboCBD™ Different From Competitors?

First off, TurboCBD™ utilizes our patented process to infuse the active ingredients from the finest, full spectrum hemp oil together with certain fatty acids or lipids. In doing so, a couple of important benefits are realized. One is that the strong taste of raw hemp oil is masked because it is bound with another substance. Secondly, bioavailability of lipids processed by the human body is high, which is believed to lead to a more rapid and effective absorption of the active ingredients into the body. To date, we have performed a series of laboratory and human studies to assess this. Third-party (in vitro) laboratory testing has showed that our technology enabled a 499% increase in cannabinoid permeability in human intestinal tissues when compared to controls that lacked our technology improvements. Furthermore, a human biomarker study demonstrated that our technology caused as much as a 5-10 fold increase in levels of a CBD surrogate in the body, with onset of this action in as little as 15 minutes.

In addition, our TurboCBD™ formulation includes other powerful ingredients. Namely, American Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba. We included these additional agents because of their highly complementary actions together with the benefits of full spectrum hemp oil, whereby these compounds are known to support stress and fatigue reduction while also aiding in supporting focus and memory.
