A: CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis and hemp. In the human body, CBD influences cannabinoid receptor activity and encourages production of the body’s natural endocannabinoids. Interestingly, CBD also affects activity beyond the endocannabinoid system and can also interact with opioid, dopamine, and serotonin receptors. The ability of CBD to interact with so many different systems throughout the body suggests it has the potential to open new frontiers in psychiatry and medicine. Cannabinoids can be categorized into three groups: Phytocannabinoids, which are found in the cannabis plant, Endocannabinoids, found in the bodies of mammals including humans, and synthetic cannabinoids, formulated in laboratories. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, or the ECS. The endocannabinoid system helps to maintain equilibrium in bodily processes such as sleep, memory, mood, appetite, and pain.

A: When taking a drug test, you are not being screened for CBD. However drug tests screen for THC, and many full-spectrum products have trace levels of THC…they can test up to 0.3% THC. It’s not enough to get you high, and you’d likely have to ingest a LOT of CBD oil to fail a drug test for THC. But it’s worth knowing that the risk is technically there.

A: When the varieties of terpenes are combined with the cannabinoids, the combined effect of all the compounds of the whole plant are believed to have a greater therapeutic impact than each specific compound.

A: CBD is short for cannabidiol. It doesn’t act on CB1 or CB2 receptors, so it has much different effects than THC. Most notably, CBD does not cause a “high.” Instead, it’s well known for having a calming effect.
Researchers are still identifying which receptors CBD acts on, but they know a few of them. They know CBD interacts with a serotonin receptor, which could explain its anti-anxiety effects. They also know it interacts with receptors known to influence the body’s perception of pain. Many reviewed clinical studies suggested that cannabinoids could improve sleep quality, decrease sleep disturbances, and decrease sleep onset latency. 

A: No. These are softgels containing Supercritical CO2 Extracted CBD that has a complete extract of over 50% from the entire Cannabis Sativa Hemp plant, not the marijuana variety. Hemp has only extremely small amounts of THC in comparison to the variety grown for marijuana or hashish. Hemp and marijuana are two different varieties of the C.sativa plant, with hemp containing more CBD, and very minimal (almost no) THC. CBD does not cause impairment.

A: CBD is classified as a nutritional supplement, and to date the FDA has not designated dose requirements or provided formal nutritional guidelines for CBD products. There has been no documentation of side effects or overdosing of CBD. High doses of up to 1500 mg/day have been well tolerated for adults, however often much less than that provides relief for a variety of conditions. More importantly, Peacetree Naturals CBD is accurately labeled for concentration and thoroughly tested for impurities and heavy metals that may be harmful to the human body. We suggest 1 to 2 softgels per day to start, and increasing from there as necessary. Most of our customers report taking them about an hour before bedtime, although several take them right before they go to bed. Please note that while most users report noticing a difference with their very first dose, natural products may require up to 2 weeks of daily use to notice the maximum improvement of symptoms.

A: We have not seen that to be the case with our product.  In fact, CBD may build up in the body causing an increase of cannabinoid receptors, making the body’s endocannabinoid system more active and more sensitive to stimulation by cannabinoids.

A: Full-spectrum CBD (cannabidiol) means that it contains all of the beneficial compounds that are naturally found in the plant. This includes more than 100 cannabinoids, including CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as well as terpenes and flavonoids.  All of these have been shown to have therapeutic benefits.  Full-spectrum CBD contains only very tiny amounts of THC.

A: CBD has been found to have therapeutic effects on animals as well as people, however we have no expertise in this area, and we wouldn’t want to guess with your precious pet.  We recommend this site for more information on this:


A: Under the TSA guidelines, on domestic (US) flights, you do not need to declare any CBD products separately that are legal per the US federal government (those with under .3% THC). However, due to potentially harsh laws and regulations in other countries, they do advise to leave any and all CBD products at home.   For cruise travel, please double-check with the cruise lines before traveling with your softgels.

A: Our CBD extract is grown and processed in the United States from the entire Cannabis Sativa Hemp plant.  It is non-GMO and Pesticide Free.

A: Our softgels are pure unadulterated full spectrum CBD with MCT Oil, and nothing else.  We did not include melatonin because there is limited research on the long term effects of using melatonin as a sleep aid.  As melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced in the body that not only signals when it’s time to go to sleep, but also impacts things like blood sugar, body temperature, and blood vessel constriction, there are many people who prefer not to take it.  We prefer to keep the pure benefits of the CBD alone in this product.

A: We recommend storing them in a dark, cool dry place.  If the CDB softgels are not stored properly, or are exposed to sunlight, heat or moisture, they may lose efficacy over time. The CBD oil in your softgels should maintain potency for up to 24 months.  If they do get warm and stick together a bit, just put them in the refrigerator for an hour or so.

A: Yes, Peacetree Naturals CBD softgels contain less than 0.03% THC and are legal in all 50 States on the Federal level. However, individual states may have their own laws and regulations – please check with your own state’s regulations to determine if they differ to some degree from the federal laws.
