What is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol. CBD is a cannabinoid that works within your body’s Endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids are essentially chemical transmitters that interact with receptors, like a lock interacts with a key!
There are two types of cannabinoids: endocannabinoids, “endo” coming from the Greek root “endon’”, meaning within or inside. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids that are made within your body. Then there are phytocannabinoids. “Phyto”, coming from the Greek root “phyton-“, meaning plant or vegetation, phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that are made within plants. Rooted Lyfe products are all made with phytocannabinoids, cannabinoids that we extract from the hemp plant. These two forms of cannabinoid are essentially the same. Structurally there is no difference between them, no matter where they come from. When someone is deficient in endocannabinoids, they can supplement with phytocannabinoids.
What are the benefits of using CBD?
There is an incredible list of benefits from using CBD. Some of our favorites reported by customers are:
Promote Radiant Skin
Calm Racing Thoughts

Regulate Circadian Rhythm
How much CBD should I take?
This is a tough question. At this time, there is no reliable way to figure out the ideal dose for any one person without some trial and error. Everyone’s Endocannabinoid System and metabolism are different, so what works for your friend may not work for you.
We recommend starting low and slow. More is not always better when it comes to CBD, so starting around 5-10mg a day is the best way to go about finding an appropriate dose for you. Give this a try for about a week and then assess. Do you feel a difference? Are you experience the relief you had hoped for? If not, we’d recommend increasing your dose by 5mg a day and giving it another week. Repeat this process until you feel you’ve reached an ideal dose.
The best way to keep track of your experience is to use our free Progress Tracking Journal. It’s free to print and comes with clear instructions. Using the journal will help you to be aware of what’s important and will provide you with a week’s worth of data to look over. This data is very helpful in deciding whether or not to increase/decrease your dose.
When should I take my CBD?
This answer is different for everyone. The time of day that you take your CBD will not increase or decrease its effectiveness as long as you are taking it daily. So, some people choose to take it before bed to promote a good night’s sleep. For others, CBD can make one feel awake and mentally stimulated, making it hard to sleep. Again, trial and error is key. What we would definitely suggest is taking your first couple of doses at home during a time that you don’t have to leave the house. Sometimes, if the dose is higher than your body needs, you may feel sleepy; so it’s best to not have to drive the first couple of tries.
On the other hand, if you aren’t taking CBD daily, you may find that taking it before an exam or other important event can help to promote mental clarity and increased concentration.
Can I use CBD for ________?
Here’s the thing: CBD is not a cure-all. It has amazing potential to aid with many ailments and illnesses, but it won’t work for absolutely everything. We always recommend giving it a try, as you’ll more than likely notice extra benefits you weren’t expecting, but we can’t guarantee that it will work for your specific ailment/illness.
How do I know how much CBD is in a dropper?
This number is easily found with the following equation:
Total CBD Milligrams / Total Milliliter Amount of Tincture
= Milligrams of CBD per Milliliter of CBD Oil.
For example, we’ve plugged in the necessary information below to figure out how much CBD is in one dropper of our 1,000mg All In One Tincture:
1,000mg CBD / 30 mL Tincture
= 33 mg CBD per 1 mL Tincture
Our droppers are standard 1mL droppers, so this formula gives you the amount per dropper of tincture.
Where do you get your CBD?
Our CBD is derived from hemp grown organically in Colorado, USA – seed to bottle. Every hemp plant is grown free from pesticides, GMO’s, and heavy metals. By using hemp that is grown in a state that has legalized cannabis, both medicinally and recreationally, we choose hemp grown under the highest standards.
Will your products get me high?
Absolutely not. THC is the cannabinoid that creates the “high” feeling. Our products always fall beneath .3% THC by volume, making them federally legal in the United States. Because there is so little THC in our products, they will not cause a “high”.
Are your products safe for pets?
Our All In One Tincture was formulated with pets in mind, as well as people! It is safe to give to dogs, cats, and other pets because it’s ingredients are so minimal. In fact, we even have a Pet Tincture Dosing Guide available in our Resource Center for your reference.
Can I take CBD with my medication?
Unfortunately, we can’t answer this question for you. We are not medical professionals and want to ensure our customers have the best and safest experience possible. To be safe, you should talk to your doctor about adding CBD to your medical regimen.
How long does it take to start working?/ How long until I feel a difference?
Again, the answer to this question is different for everybody. Because the Endocannabinoid System and metabolism differ so wildly from person to person, some may feel a difference right away while others may need up to a month to start to feel the effects.
Is CBD legal?
Ours is, yes. Hemp-derived CBD that tests with less than .3% THC by volume is federally legal in the United States.

If I use your products, will I fail a drug test?
It is highly unlikely that our products will cause a false positive on a drug test because of how low the THC levels are. But, we don’t want to make any promises we can’t absolutely keep. We can’t guarantee you’ll pass every test out there, so CBD products should be used with discretion when it comes to drug tests.
Can I overdose on CBD?
Nope! CBD doesn’t do any harm in high doses. The most common side effect linked to taking a high dose of CBD (100+mg) is sleepiness.
What are the most common side effects?
