CBD Questions?

Rye Beach Pharmacy can give you honest answers.


Does CBD cure all?

No, but there are a lot of people reporting positive results especially those who suffer from anxiety, inflammation, pain and sleep issues.

What is Plant-Based CBD Hemp Oil?

Cannabidiol also known as CBD is a non-psychoactive (meaning it doesn't get you high) chemical compound produced by the hemp plant.

Is It Safe for Humans and Pets?

Yes. According to the World Health Organization, naturally occurring CBD is safe and well tolerated in humans & animals, plus not associated with any negative health effects. We stock a CBD product that is labeled for veterinary use and safe for Pet Care.

How Is Hemp Different From Marijuana?

Many people use the terms "industrial hemp" or "commercial hemp" so it is clear that they are not referring to the marijuana variety of cannabis. In very basic terms, marijuana is cultivated explicitly for drug production, whereas hemp is grown for fiber, seed, and oil. Marijuana is grown to have elevated levels of THC, the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, and the CBD levels are usually low. Hemp, on the other hand, is just the opposite. It has an abundance of CBD and is not psychoactive.

How Does Plant-based CBD Hemp Oil Work?

Studies show that receptors in our bodies play a major role in motor control, anxiety response, inflammation and even addiction. CBD interacts with these receptors by doing a lot of things like delaying, inhibiting and enhancing receptors.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

It is unlikely that CBD will show up on a drug test, but THC can. Some of our products have no THC, while others have the trace amount allowed by law (0.03%). If you have a drug test requirement, we would recommend the CBD products with no THC.

Will CBD get me high?

No. CBD does not contain the psychoactive properties that are found in THC.

What serving size should I take?

Each body is different so serving sizes will vary from person to person. We recommend starting with the serving size on the bottle for the first week. CBD builds up in your system so after the first week you should start to see the results you're looking for. If not, increase the dosage for the next week. Continue this until the desired effects are reached. Call our or visit our Wellness team of pharmacists Danielle, Ronald, Rosella or their assistant Jacques to discuss more.

Does CBD interact with medication?

We always recommend consulting your physician or pharmacist before starting a new food supplement.

Is CBD legal?

Yes, hemp-derived CBD oil is legal in the U.S. under the 2018 Farm Bill. Under this bill, hemp is defined as containing 0.3% or less THC.

What are the side effects of CBD?

For some, CBD can be relaxing. As with any oil, if you take too much it may cause an upset stomach.

What dosage forms do we stock?

Rye Beach Pharmacy carries CBD oils, capsules, lotions, balms and creams. Based on your needs and preferences we can help you select the product that is best for you.
