Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions? We have answers!

We have heard a lot of questions about CBD over the years. The questions listed below seem to be the most common. If you still can't find your answer feel free to contact us!

1. What is CBD, and how does it work?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is the primary cannabinoid found in ULIXY products. It is one of over 100 naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and is among the most thoroughly researched alongside THC. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that occur naturally in the human body and actively interact with cannabinoid receptors located throughout the human body.

2. How is CBD different from marijuana?

While CBD is a naturally-occurring component of marijuana, it does not cause a "high" like some may think. The CBD we offer is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of the marijuana plant. Industrial hemp is defined by US law as cannabis having 0.3% or less delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content by dry weight.

3. What makes Green Otter different?

Green Otter is a culmination of the entire word's knowledge of CBD all packed into a friendly and convenient environment. Because the FDA does not regulate CBD, our products are held to an even higher standard, and undergo more rigorous testing than the FDA would ever require. With such impressive quality and standards, we have streamlined our production to skip the large “hedge shops'' and ship directly to our customers for a more efficient and personal experience.

4. How are Green Otter products manufactured?

Every Green Otter product starts with organic ingredients harvested in the United States. These elements move to an FDA-certified facility, where CBD is extracted and used as the base of each formula. Once we have a final product, a sample of each batch is sent to an unaffiliated lab to be tested for accuracy. Our products always start and stop on U.S. soil.

5. What is the difference between broad- and full-spectrum CBD

If an extract is full-spectrum, this means it contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the plant, including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. Full-spectrum extracts from hemp also come with a negligible THC content —below 0.3%. Every Green Otter product utilizes a full-spectrum blend.

6. What dosage should I take?

Everyone is unique and in a different place in life which means everyone can react differently to each Green Otter product. As the dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best to start small and gradually increase at a comfortable level until you experience the desired result. 

7. Who shouldn't take CBD products?

Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should avoid taking CBD products. Although we are an industry leader in safety, there is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking products containing cannabidiol if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. No CBD product is safer than Green Otter CBD!
