CBD: Everything You Need to Know (& Other FAQs)

What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids in cannabis, and it’s been well-documented to possess anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and anti-anxiety effects. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, it won’t make you high.

What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the main chemical compounds made by the cannabis plant, and there are at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. Out of all the known cannabinoids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the ONLY one that’s psychoactive.

Do I need a medical marijuana card or doctor’s prescription?
No. Our CBD is ethically sourced from industrial hemp (not marijuana) and is legally available to anyone in the United States.

Since Not Pot™ chocolate contains CBD, will it make me high?
No. This is probably the biggest misconception. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) is completely non-psychoactive.

I ate a chocolate heart yesterday but don’t feel anything yet. What’s going on?
If you’ve ever started a new supplement or vitamin regimen, you probably know the short answer to “How long does it take to notice a difference?” Well, it depends. For instance, if you’ve only recently started suffering from mild symptoms, you'll probably feel better faster than someone who’s been dealing with severe symptoms for years. Results are cumulative and oftentimes subtle at first, so be consistent and understand that taking vitamins of any kind is simply a form of investing in your future self.

Where do you source your CBD?
We're proud to support sustainable (& organic!) Colorado hemp farmers. 

Can I return the jar for something else?
Because we make our products in small batches to preserve potency and flavor, all sales are final. However, we love hearing from customers and are always looking to improve future formulations and products, so if you have any suggestions, please email us at hello@notpot.com

Help! My credit card got declined!
Ugh. This sucks. Since our credit card processor runs through a bank in the U.S. and overseas, your credit card company might flag this transaction as suspicious. If your card is declined, we suggest you call your credit card company to clear the transaction, and then place a new order.

Finally, what’s with the name? Do you have a vendetta against pot?
Lol, no. We think Not Pot™ has a nice ring to it. Life’s too short to be serious 😉.
