CBD 101

 

CBD 

(Cannabidiol) is a naturally-occurring molecule

found in the hemp plant.

WHY CBD?

The most common reasons Americans report using natural alternatives like CBD are, to help manage;

Pain – Anxiety – Sleep

CBD for Pain

64% of current CBD users report using CBD to help support pain relief and inflammation. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 1 in 5 Americans or about 50 million people suffer from chronic pain. So, it’s no surprise that pain management is very high on the list for people seeking natural relief. Whether it’s sports related injuries, car accidents, or just the aches and pains from getting older, Americans report turning to natural alternatives like CBD more and more.

CBD for Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental illness in America. While statistics show that anxiety is estimated to affect 40 million Americans over the age of 18, many of these same people are turning to natural alternatives like CBD to help support their mood. You’re not alone, the most common types of anxiety include Panic Disorder, PTSD-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and others. CBD promotes a calming effect without the “high” of THC.

CBD for Sleep

Supporting healthy sleep habits is one of the top 3 reasons people reach for CBD. This comes with good reason since Consumer Reports found 70%, or an estimated 164 million Americans have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep most nights. Difficulty sleeping has a direct ripple effect on all aspects of our lives and health including one’s immunity.

HOW CBD WORKS

We looked for the answers using basic anatomy, and found out everyone has an

Endocannabinoid System

 How Does CBD Work?

It all starts by understanding that every function in our body requires balance, or homeostasis, to perform at maximum capacity.

Have you ever heard of an Endocannabinoid System (ECS)? Well, everyone has one, and pain, stress, appetite, energy, metabolism, cardiovascular function, reward, motivation, reproduction and sleep are all functions of the ECS. The ECS helps the body maintain homeostasis with the help of “messenger” molecules called cannabinoids.

Your ECS has an abundance of receptors throughout your central nervous system (CNS). Two most recognized receptors are Cannabinoid-1 (CB-1), and Cannabinoid-2 (CB2) which are responsible for a variety of brain functions. In fact cannabinoid receptors are an essential component of the body’s endocannabinoid system. The most abundant cannabinoids include Cannabidiol (CBD).

 

CBD + ADDICTION

Not everyone wants to get high, some people just want to get better.

You Hold the Power

CBD Addiction

There is no evidence that CBD is habit forming, therefore no reason for concern with addiction. In fact a recent study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, led by Yasmin Hurd, further demonstrates the ability of CBD to reduce cravings in people with heroin drug addiction. Results demonstrate reduction in anxiety as well as reduction in heart rate and cortisol which is the “stress hormone”. The effects on the intervention were visible as soon as one hour after administration of CBD and were still visible up to one week after the intervention. 

DRUG TESTING CBD

Avoid products containing THC

Accurate Labels

Will CBD Cause me to Fail a Drug Test?

The CBD will not show up in a drug test because drug tests do not screen for CBD. In fact, an article published in 2020 shows drug tests typically focus on the following substances: 

– Amphetamines

– Alcohol

– Cocaine

– Benzodiazepines

– Cannabis (THC)

– Opiates

How to Avoid a Positive Drug Test.

1.) Avoid product containing any THC.

2.) Avoid mislabeled products.

The best way to solve these problems is by asking the manufacturer for a 3rd party certificate of analysis (COA), or lab results confirming the THC is showing a non detectable level.

 

 

HEMP vs MARIJUANA

The main difference between hemp and marijuana is the percentage of CBD vs. THC content.

HEMP

Characteristic

  • 0.3% or less of THC
  • Non-psychotropic plant known as the Cannabis sativa L. which contains high levels of CBD and very low levels of THC.

MARIJUANA

Characteristic

  • 15-20% of THC
  • Psychoactive “high” due to the extremely high levels of THC and low traces of CBD.

CBD has zero psychotropic effect, so you can safely consume CBD without the worry of an unwanted high.

IS CBD BENEFICIAL? While it may be widely accepted in todays society that consuming CBD offers a variety of benefits, RIP N S!P does not make any health or benefit claims.

Common Questions

How much CBD should I take?

This is the number one question when it comes to CBD, and it’s the reason we created Rip N Sip CBD. We eliminated the confusion and hesitation that makes CBD so mystifying to the average person. No measuring. No guessing. No worries, just rip, mix, n’ enjoy. We recommend starting with one pre-measured 20mg packet per day. Note: CBD will not make you intoxicated so you can take 2 or 3 if you want.

What does CBD taste like?

Raw CBD is very bitter. Luckily we found a way to eliminate that bitterness. In fact, Rip N Sip CBD is neutral-flavored. This allows you to mix CBD into any drink without impacting the taste.

What makes rip n sip different?

In two words – emulsion technology. It might sound intimidating, or scientific but it’s just a fancy way of saying that we use science and technology to convert our CBD from a hydrophobic oil, to a water soluble liquid with a particular attraction to H20. 

Why would we want to do that?

Your mouth and digestive tract are watery places, and oil and water don’t mix. When you swallow a “standard” CBD oil, it forms clusters of oil with CBD hidden inside leaving it virtually inaccessible and difficult for your body to efficiently digest.

How does emulsion technology work? 

In short, emulsion technology encapsulates oil and offers the desired balance of solubility. This method of preventing oil from clustering together allows Rip N Sip to become a water soluble liquid that seamlessly blends with water.

What are the benefits of doing this?

The reason this is beneficial to you, is because your body has a much easier time absorbing CBD oil when it’s paired with emulsion technology, and because water soluble liquids help your body alleviate the filtration process. This means:

    • A substantially quicker onset time. Typically ±15 minutes
    • Enhanced absorption 
    • You get more bang for your buck
    • RIP N SIP allows you to enjoy CBD with any drink, anywhere, any time
