FAQ

What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis sativa hemp plant. It is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. CBD products are used by physician's to treat a wide range of conditions—chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more. CBD is known to have strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuro-protective qualities.

What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic molecules that are present in cannabis. Aromas and flavors produced by the essential oils of many types of plants are the result of terpenes. These compounds can induce distinct effects on the human body. Along with providing their own independent benefits, terpenes work together with cannabinoids to produce a multitude of effects and therapeutic benefits known as the entourage effect.

What Is The Entourage Effect?

The Entourage Effect is the synergistic effect resulting from various natural components within a plant interacting within the human body to produce different, often stronger, effects than caused by any one of those components used independently. These various components include terpenes and cannabinoids in the case of cannabis.

Will CBD Make Me Feel High?

No. You will not experience a "high" feeling. CBD is non-psychoactive.

Is It Safe To Take CBD With Medication Or Supplements?

Consult your doctor if you have questions about the safety of CBD products when combined with any prescription, medication, or supplements.

Do I Need A Medical Marijuana Card?

No. You do not need a medical marijuana card or a doctor's recommendation to purchase and consume hemp. We advise you to consult your physician before consuming CBD.

Will CBD Make Me Fail A Drug Test?

Typically drug tests look for THC, and are not known to test positive for other non-intoxicating cannabinoids such as CBD. Hemp flowers contain trace amounts of THC. If consumed excessively this could lead to drug test failures. Vermont Select is not responsible for any drug test failures relating to the consumption of our products. Use at your own discretion. Lab results showing cannabinoid levels are provided on this site for your reference.

Is CBD Hemp Legal?

Our product is legal in all 50 states.

The 2018 US Farm Bill amended Sec. 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 which re-defined hemp and its legal status. This bill also amended sections 102(16) and 202( c) of the Controlled Substances Act to establish hemp as separate from marijuana and to establish that THC found in hemp is exempt from the Controlled Substances Act. Below are the amended Acts that make the sale of this hemp product legal:

Section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 – “The term “hemp” means the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of the plant, including the seed thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis..”

Section 102(16) OF THE Controlled Substances Act – “The term ‘marijuana’ does not include hemp, as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Act of 1946..”

Section 202( c) of the Controlled Substances Act is a table that previously had tetrahydrocannabinol listed as number 17 on the list of Schedule I substances. This entry has been amended and now reads: “(17) Tetrahydrocannabinol, except for tetrahydrocannabinol in hemp (as defined under section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946).

The concentrations of Delta-9 in our hemp is well below the 0.3% maximum level. The Vermont Department of Agriculture has permitted this product as “Industrial Hemp” under the allowable provisions set forth by the 2014 US Farm Bill which included the pilot program for industrial hemp that lead to the 2018 US Farm Bill with the same standards. Therefore, this hemp flower is legal to possess by anyone in the United States and to sell when done so by a registered processor. All hemp processed by us now, and in the future, will comply with all Federal and State laws.

Vermont Select LLC. is a registered processor with the Vermont Department of Agriculture selling legal industrial hemp.
