Frequently Asked Questions

Is CBD legal? Do I need a medical card? Due to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD from Hemp is legal in all 50 U.S. states and no medical card is necessary.

Is there an age restriction on purchasing CBD? No. Hemp is classified as having less than 0.3% THC and there are no laws on how old you have to be to purchase a hemp product.

How do I know CBD will work? CBD is a natural remedy that goes hand in hand with your body's VERY OWN Endocannabinoid System (ECS). However, rarely one’s ECS needs a few days to “start up” as it may not be use to be used.

So what is a Endocannabinoid System (ECS)? The ECS is a receptor system that everyone is born with. Your ECS is designed to repair damaged cells and provide a state of internal stability. That system exists in the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs that allow the body to be highly receptive of a cannabinoids like CBD or THC.

When will I feel the effects? Some customers have immediate results - which is wonderful! But like most dietary supplements, it can take a bit of time.

Will CBD make me feel "high"? No, CBD is the non-psychoactive compound found in the industrial hemp plant. However with sublingual oils, you may feel clear minded and relaxed which could lead to feeling a different type of way that usual - which is what you may be looking for!

Will CBD make me tired? It depends on the product. Sublinguals are more likely to than salves, bath bombs, or cleansers.

What dosage strength should I buy? The stronger the symptom, the stronger dosage. If you’re unsure, 1000 mg salve or sublingual is best as you can dose less or more as needed.

How do dosages work? So in example of a 1000 mg 1 oz sublingual oil: There are 591 drops in a 1 oz bottle. So 1000 mg of CBD / 591 drops = 1.69 mg of CBD per drop. Therefore, if taking 4 drops at a time, you will be consuming 6.76 mg of CBD.

Will using CBD pop on a drug test? It's extremely rare that CBD, especially from Hemp, will make you pop on a drug test, in order to do so you would have to consume 1000 - 2000 mg a day. Also, the drug tests can specifically determine CBD vs THC. Yerba Buena frequently sells to First Responders, Military, and others that are often drug tested. USE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.

What product is right for me? Products have different uses. Easiest rule of thumb is:

Topicals/Bars: Direct, instant relief to problem area

Sublingual Oils: Anxiety, stress relief / prolonged pain relief as it works from within

Bath Bomb: Quick relief for tension, soreness

Will my dog have any side effects from CBD? Just be sure to follow suggested serving allotments . If too much hemp extract oil is given to a dog, then temporary drowsiness could occur. Additionally, too much oil, not CBD, could cause an upset stomach and diarrhea - same for you. As you would with yourself, start your pup off slow.
