Frequently Asked Questions

crayoHemp CBD Oil

IS CRAYOHEMP HUMAN GRADE?

Absolutely! Crayolex works with the best hemp farms in the Country and uses the most reliable suppliers for CBD oil for humans. Everything from the ingredients to the bottle and dropper is human grade.


We use crayoHemp on ourselves and our pets. Our goal has always been to make the products equal or better in every way to its human-use counterparts. However, due to the extra liability involved in marketing the product for human use, officially, we are required to say that it's only for pets.  

DOES CRAYOHEMP HAVE ANY INACTIVE INGREDIENTS?

All of the crayoHemp products are Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil-based. For the carrier oils, we use a proprietary mix of one or both of only two natural ingredients: Coconut based MCT Oil and Hemp seed oil. It does not contain any inactive ingredients such as thickeners, preservatives, flavoring, binders, or any other compounds.

WHY IS CARRIER HEMP OIL ADDED? WHY ISN'T IT 100% CONCENTRATED?

The body can't use pure CBD (isolate), as it is bioavailable. It must be in the presence of fat for the body to utilize. When ingested, the carrier oil binds with the fat molecules in your system. Also, CBD is far more natural to measure out when mixed with oil.

The best form of carrier oil for CBD is hemp-seed and MCT coconut oils. (crayoHemp uses both)

WHY IS CRAYOHEMP CHEAPER THAN SOME OTHER BRANDS?

We source directly from farmers, purchase in large volumes, and formulate our unique formula, and design all of our labels, boxes, and insert cards. We deliver it straight to you and cut out all the middlemen.

HOW MUCH CBD OIL SHOULD I TAKE?

Please refer to the DOSAGE page or the DOSAGE tab under each product.

DOES CRAYOHEMP CONTAIN PESTICIDES?

Absolutely not. We source exclusively from 100% organic farms in Oregon, so this is never an issue. Our ingredients never become exposed to pesticides. Even so, we still routinely have our oils tested by a 3rd party lab for potency and the presence of any toxins, pesticides, heavy metals, and much more. All test results and certificates of analysis are made public on each product page.

CAN I GIVE MY PET CRAYOHEMP IF THEY ARE TAKING OTHER MEDICATION?

crayoHemp is excellent for helping to relieve pain in many conditions. If your pet is taking medications, please consult with your pet's primary doctor before initiating pain treatment with crayoHemp (or any hemp oil for that matter). Your vet will incorporate crayoHemp into the pet's treatment plan correctly.


The science behind this that your vet will take into consideration: Hemp oil inhibits the p450 enzyme (as it was called many years ago but today is recognized as a group of more than 20 enzymes.) The p450 enzyme can slow down the metabolism/degradation of some medications, causing their effective dose to be higher (i.e., a specific dose was given, but it acted on the patient like a higher dose).


Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group, which is why physicians advise patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication.


When an animal is taking multiple drugs, and some either inhibit or induce the enzymes that degrade them, it is essential to be aware of these interactions.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW IF I WAS PREVIOUSLY USING A DIFFERENT BRAND?

We want to explain the most common reason for not seeing results when moving from one CBD brand to another. The CBD potency and ACTIVE ingredients of CBD products from other brands will be different from product to product and from brand to brand. Thus, the suggested dosage will vary for each brand. The correct dosage per brand is crucial for achieving the best results. We designed our dosage calculator to match our potency and active ingredient. 


An incorrect dosage will mar the experience. If you’ve tried CBD but saw no effect, this is likely the primary reason why it is not working for you. For example, if you start with too heavy of a CBD dosage, the effect may be too strong, and in that case, your tolerance may also increase to match it. Then, when you take a lower hemp dosage from a different brand, it isn’t going to cut it for you. 


On the other hand, if your CBD dosage is too low, the problem is apparent. You won’t feel much of an effect. One might then go on to claim that the CBD brand doesn’t work. However, the truth is that you didn’t take a strong enough dose or a high enough amount to make a difference. It’s not that the brand doesn’t work — it’s just that you didn’t take enough to matter. 


Fortunately, there are ways to address the situation. One of the best methods of decreasing tolerance is to take a hemp break. Even a couple of weeks should be enough to restore disorder and ensure your pet's body reacts positively to the new brand stimuli. 


Please refer to the DOSAGE page for more information.

DOES CRAYOHEMP WORK FOR CATS TOO?

Absolutely! All mammals have an endocannabinoid (ECS) system that regulates how our bodies function. CBD binds to the receptors in our bodies and supplements the ECS system, helping to ease pain, anxiety, and allergies - it can also help improve the mood of your pet as well. 


One note of caution with cats - THC impacts cats differently than humans as they have more CB-1 receptors in their brains. When using any CBD Oil, make sure the THC content is 0.3% or lower (which crayoHemp is and safe to use on cats).

IS CBD OIL LEGAL?

CBD oil is perfectly legal to be used and sold within the United States. The growing, processing and selling of hemp extracts are possible through federal regulation within Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, which the U.S. Congress passed and signed into law.

WILL YOU GET HIGH FROM USING HEMP OIL?

Because CBD is a non-psychoactive component from industrial hemp, it does not contain any elements of THC that is familiar with cannabis. Therefore, there is no high effect as a result of using CBD Oil. Our CBD oils are below the required levels (<0.3%.)


So, I won’t get high from crayoHemp? No, and that’s a good thing!

HOW WILL HEMP OIL AFFECT MY PET?

CBD affects the body by triggering the receptors of the endocannabinoid system within your brain and nervous system. These receptors regulate various body parts and systems – results may vary based on your purpose for using CBD.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FEEL THE EFFECTS OF CBD OIL?

This question is a good one, but also tricky. The right dose of CBD varies from pet to pet (or person to person). There is no one-answer-fits-all. The response to how much CBD should one take is subjective. The answer would depend on the outcome you are expecting. If it is for general health, the amount of mg will be less than if you are trying to deal with an issue.


Some have reported immediate results when applied during seizures. 


Generally speaking, larger individual pets may prefer a higher dose of CBD than smaller ones. With CBD Oil, you can quickly scale up just a few milligrams at a time to meet your personal needs. 


Due to this, usage should start with a low dosage. It should be gradually increased or decreased depending on the perceived effects on the user. 


Many CBD users notice a dramatic effect the longer they use CBD Oil. There is currently no report of harm or hazard from an overdose in regards to how much CBD Oil you should take.


Please refer to the DOSAGE page for more information.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM CBD OIL?

Any side effects of CBD oil are insignificant at best – nowhere near as relevant as those side effects from pharmaceutical medicines that are approved by the FDA. The most that CBD users have reported is minor abdominal discomfort or mild sedation. Side effects would be rare when using high-quality oil as crayoHemp does. Again, there is no high effect or psychoactive properties with CBD Oil, so no worries about the ability of your pet to perform day-to-day duties.

From the FDA website: While the agency is aware of reports of pets consuming various forms of cannabis, to date, FDA has not directly received any reports of adverse events associated with animals given cannabis products.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE TOO MUCH CBD OIL AT ONCE?

CBD Oil dosages will vary from person to person or pet to pet. Some cases may only need a little dosage while others may require higher intakes – it depends on which symptoms you’re trying to relieve. There are no reports of any lethal or deadly doses of CBD Oil. For more information about dosage and to use the online, interactive dosage calculator, please visit the dosage-calculator page.

WHAT MAKES HEMP PLANTS DIFFERENT FROM MARIJUANA PLANTS?

Hemp and marijuana primarily come from the same plant family, cannabis Sativa. The main difference between the two is their level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) - the illegal, psychotropic cannabinoid. According to the Agricultural Act of 2014, the Obama Administration describes legal hemp plants as containing less than 0.3% THC.

WILL I NEED A MARIJUANA CARD OR DOCTOR’S/VET'S PRESCRIPTION TO USE CRAYOHEMP PRODUCTS?

Not at all - crayolex legally operates in full accordance with the Federal Hemp Law. Our products categorize as hemp dietary supplements that are legal to be purchased anywhere in the U.S.

WILL USING CBD OIL SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?

Since crayoHemp is human-grade, we are assuming you are asking about a human. Because there are only trace amounts of THC found in CBD Oil, in most cases, it will not cause a positive drug test when consumed at suggested servings. If this is a significant concern, we advise speaking with your employer or doctor before use.

WHAT’S THE PROPER WAY TO STORE CBD PRODUCTS FROM CRAYOHEMP?

Store crayoHemp products in a dry, cool area with no direct exposure to constant light or excessive heat. Prolong exposure to sunlight or heat can cause the oil to lose its potency. Temperatures above 160 degrees Fahrenheit will cause crayoHemp to breakdown and become ineffective. For some people, refrigeration is the simplest way to ensure the most extended possible shelf life. For most people, however, refrigeration isn't needed - it's just ideal. We don't recommend cooling as the cold oil might be harder to administer through the dropper.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE USED IN CRAYOHEMP CBD OILS?

crayoHemp CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Extract uses 100% organic, all-natural, USA-grown industrial hemp that is non-GMO and vegan certified. Our products are unscented. If products don't specify a flavor profile, then the product is unflavored. For the carrier oil, we might use Highly Beneficial MCT oil, hemp seed oil, or other essential oils - see product page for ingredients.

IS THERE AN EXPIRATION DATE FOR CBD PRODUCTS?

There is a shelf life for crayoHemp oils. You will find the expiration dates listed on each product. The shelf life applies even after opening the bottle. High-quality CBD oil as crayoHemp should last for at least 24 months or more.
