Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a single cannabinoid found to reside in the Cannabis plant; there are over a hundred more cannabinoids with similar names like tetrahydrocannabinol-THC or Cannabichromene-CBC. A cannabinoid is a type of chemical that reacts with an assigned receptor in the brain called, cleverly enough, a cannabinoid receptor. Cannabinoid receptors were discovered in 1988, and so the science behind them is still just beginning to be understood. What we do know is that each and every cannabinoid has some sort of an effect on the body, the science behind what precisely those effects are is developing all the time, so the Upstate Elevator Supply Co. heartily recommends that you do a bit of independent research into the subject.

Do your products contain THC?

All of Upstate’s products are third party tested for purity and potency, and none of our products contain more than the federal legal limit of .3% THC. Some of our products are made with CBD Isolate and contain no THC whatsoever such as the 1000mg THC Free Tincture and the 500mg Organic CBD Gummy.

How do I best use CBD?

CBD can be applied topically, sublingually, inhaled, swallowed, or sipped; we are constantly discovering new methods of production and consumption. Take a capsule with breakfast, put a few drops of our tincture in your morning tea, or munch on a delicious gummy or chocolate at lunch.

Will CBD help me if I’m already healthy?

We can’t make any health claims as we aren’t doctors. But if you do your own research, you will see that in addition to CBD, hemp extracts contains a range of beneficial nutrients and plant constituents like terpenes, phytocannabinoids and other phytonutrients that can play a role in helping the body to maintain homeostasis. Many of our customers use CBD as a daily dietary supplement.

What can CBD be used for?

While the benefits of CBD and cannabinoids in general are well documented and undeniable, the scientific understanding of precisely how they function in the body is growing every day. Much of the existing body of research is sponsored by the US government and underscores the potential of CBD as a treatment for a range of conditions, including but not limited to chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, migraines, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, ADHD, and epilepsy. Here at Upstate Elevator Supply Co, we strongly feel that CBD Cannabis should be considered a dietary essential.

Is CBD psychoactive and will it make you high?

CBD does not make people feel “high” and can even counteract the psychoactivity of THC. Nothing we sell contains enough of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC to have an intoxicating effect, so long as you follow the recommended dosage.

Is it safe to take CBD with my other medications?

The science of Cannabis is a new frontier still being discovered and mapped. Upstate Elevator Supply Co. recommends you consult a doctor with medically relevant questions concerning our product.

How is CBD concentrate made?

There are dozens of methods for processing the hemp plant into hundreds of different products each with many methods of enjoyment. As just two examples; our Full Spectrum Capsules are made from the whole plant using only water and pressure, while our Lemon Tincture is made from an oil derived by supercritical co2 extraction.

Is CBD Safe for my pet?

Countless people across the United States and the world use CBD to help their pets with everything from separation anxiety to environmental allergies. We recommend you consult with your veterinarian to confirm that it will not interfere with any medications your pet is currently taking.
