Frequently Asked Questions
Blue Key CBD has put together some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for CBD Oil and Hemp Oil.
Is CBD Legal?

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD, is the second most abundant and promising phytocannabinoid found naturally in the hemp plant. Phytocannabinoids are derived from plants such as hemp or echinacea that can interact and affect CB1 and CB2 receptors, in turn, the Endocannabinoid system.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) supports the body’s natural responses to pain, stress, anxiety and many other issues. It is comprised of receptors that lie within the body; the brain, organs, connective tissues, and glands.
These receptors are CB1 (found mostly in the brain and the central nervous system) and CB2 (found primarily in the immune system and even found on white blood cells).
It’s primary function is creating homeostasis (balance) that works with all the other systems within the body. The ECS is a bridge that connects all our body’s organs and systems that helps balance the mind and body.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids refer to the group of chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors in cells in the Endocannabinoid system. Endo stands for endogenous, which means produced within the body. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters synthesized on demand and produced when the body signals they are needed. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the hemp plant.
How Does CBD Work?
Research has shown that CBD can trigger the body to build more endocannabinoid receptors throughout the nervous system and immune system to create homeostasis. CBD acts like the key that unlocks the receptors in the body.
Will CBD get me high?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most abundant phytocannabinoid rich compounds found naturally in hemp. THC is responsible for the “high” feeling. CBD will not get you high but does have incredible health benefits.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are the oils that give cannabis and flowers their unique tastes and smells. Terpenes have been shown to work with the Endocannabinoid System in the same way as cannabinoids. They assist cannabinoids to penetrate the blood-brain barrier for faster absorption.
What is Full Spectrum?
Full spectrum oil uses the full range of naturally occurring compounds of the hemp plant. It is rich not only in CBD but other cannabinoids such as CBDA, CBG, CBN, CBC, THC, THCA, and terpenes. Blue Key CBD has zero THC.
How should I store my CBD?
It is best to store your CBD in an upright position in a room or spot with normal room temperature. It is best to keep away from extreme heat, light or moisture. A medicine cabinet or dry pantry would be a good place for storing CBD oil. Blue Key CBD will last 18 month stored properly. Do not leave in a hot car. The refrigerator can be a good option but not required.
How is CBD made?
Blue Key CBD is made from a proprietary medicinal cannabis strain. Our proprietary strain is a hybrid AC/DC x Cannatonic x (another naturally high CBD strain), all of which are known for their medicinal value. The cross-breeding of this naturally high CBD/low THC strain took place over a seven year period. We have a zero THC full-spectrum oil. We achieve this through our proprietary extraction process that incorporates a gas chromatography method, allowing us to identify the naturally occurring THC and separate it out completely, instantly, while leaving intact the other synergistic components of the oil.
Will it result in a positive drug test?
Blue Key CBD contains no detectable traces of THC in current state of the art lab monitoring equipment.
