FAQsFrequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, is one of the most exciting and promising non-psychoactive compounds with enormous therapeutic potential and is currently undergoing rigorous medical and scientific research in the United States and Internationally.
CBD is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body. When it binds to the endocannabinoid system’s receptors, CBD stimulates all kinds of changes in the body.

Deep South Organics offer the highest Pharmaceutical Grade Broad Spectrum CBD on the market offered in the United States. And we use only Natural Ingredients and are GMO Free.
Is CBD legal?
Since the passing of the EPA Farm Bill Act of 2016, the substance itself, CBD is legal in all 50 states. It does not require a medical card, prescription, license, etc. Currently, Senator Mitch McConnell, submitted the Farm Bill in 2018 and asked for CBD to be removed from the DEA’s list as a Schedule One Drug. It has since passed.
Will I test positive for anything?

What is the "Entourage Effect?"
When the Greek philosopher Aristotle said, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”, he could have been talking about the whole CBD plant and CBD.
CBD contains over 113 cannabinoids, but the main ones you’re probably familiar with are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Some of the other interesting cannabinoids are cannabidiol acid (CBDA), cannabidivarin (CBDV), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).
Each cannabinoid has a different effect on the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. And so, each one can have different beneficial aspects. For example, CBD is widely considered to have pain relieving, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure and anti-nausea effects. Some research into epileptic seizure management is focusing heavily on CBDV. And CBC may have anti-fungal and anticonvulsant properties.
How much should I take?
The correct dosage differs per person with everyone having their own unique physical being. A mistake most people make is that they use CBD for only a short period of time or try to take too much in a short period of time. A natural build-up is needed for optimal health issues to be relieved.
