Frequently Asked Questions

CBD (AKA Cannabidiol) is one of over 100 unique chemical compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. New World CBD is vertically integrated and has control of our products from "Seed to Sale”. We do not outsource any of our materials that our customers use. We own the farm and grow our hemp in the USA. We also own the processing facility so when you buy New World CBD you know where it comes from.

Cannabidiol or CBD, is a promising phytocannabiniod found in agricultural hemp. It has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process in the body.  CBD is non-psychotoxic (it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile. Phytocannabiniods like CBD, are plant derivatives that “talk” to just about every major organ system in the body via the endocannabinoid system (ECS), helping restore normal balance and physiologic homeostasis. 

Cannabinoids are the primary compounds produced by the plant genus, Cannabis (Hemp), which is believed to be one of the oldest domesticated agricultural crops and is arguably the most amazingly versatile plant in the world. Through selective breeding, Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years to produce many valuable commodities, including textiles, building materials, fuel, and food.

Scientific studies have identified over 100 cannabinoids with different properties and herbal effects. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, renowned for its psychoactive and pain-killing qualities. But unknown to many, there are several other (non-hallucinogenic) cannabinoids which include CBC, CBD, CBG, CBN. Among these, CBD is the most studied and celebrated. THC is the only psychoactive/hallucinogenic cannabinoid; the term "marijuana" refers only to varieties of cannabis that contain substantial amounts of THC, while strains that are high in CBD with only trace amounts (0.3% or below) of THC are called Agricultural/Industrial Hemp. Why? Because while CBD has been shown to possibly have wonderful health benefits, it does not cause a psychotropic "high" or euphoria at all.

Instead, studies appear to indicate that CBD may quell anxiety and boost mood by promoting a sense of calmness and ease WITHOUT distorting mental cognition or causing you to to feel "stoned" or out of the ordinary.

 Most all  cannabinoids, particularly CBD, are believed to have therapeutic  effects.

Among other effects, cannabinoids have been reported to  suppress pain and nausea while stimulating appetite, euphoria or  calmness. While none of our products contain THC, some of the most  prevalent cannabinoids present in Curaleaf Hemp products include: CBD,  CBN and CBC among others.

Not all hemp CBD products are the same.   Their are lots of CBD products  on the market that don't use the correct part of the plant to give you  the  correct benefits you are seeking help with. Be CAUTIOUS and know  what to look for.

Do NOT buy Hempseed Oil CBD.  READ your Labels.   Hempseed oil is manufactured from hemp seeds and contains LOW concentrations of cannabinoids to none. It is used for a variety of  things such as: beauty products, lubricants, anti-inflammatory, paints and as a food. If you are not getting results, this is why. 

Also be aware of the carrier oil it is in.  Organic MCT oil is one of the best.  Olive oil is not the greatest from research. Hard for your body to absorb.  It is best to use a Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil to get all the benefits of the plant.

Also, best to purchase products made in the USA to help with better efficacy and product control. 

Yes it does. Cannabidiol is one the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, and a lot of the research has found it to be a promising potential therapy for many illnesses that the medical community has previously thought to be untreatable, including: pain, epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s, inflammation, acne, dyskinesia, psoriasis,broken bones, Mad Cow disease, depression, bacterial infections, diabetes, arthritis, nausea, anxiety, ADHD, schizophrenia, substance abuse/withdrawal, heart diseased and irritable bowel syndrome. In our opinion, if you are alive, you need CBD oil to keep you as healthy as possible. 

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain and spinal cord and in certain peripheral tissues, while CB2 receptors are found primarily in the immune system. These
receptors are present in most, if not all, of our cells and are so basic to our fundamental biochemistry that they are also found in all mammalian species as well. They exist for a reason and are tightly linked to our immune system, which is so critical to our ability to fight and resist disease. Some scientists think CBD oil may be, in addition to it’s binding with the CB1 receptors, the main nonpsychoactive cannabinoid that binds the receptors in your immune system, thus possibly providing a variety of medicinal benefits. 

In the last twenty years, modern science has discovered a natural "receptor" phenomenon in the human body the Endo-Cannabinoid System which scientists say may play a crucial role regulating our physiology, mood and everyday experience. The discovery of these receptors in the brain and immune system that respond to stimuli from cannabis, and the subsequent identification of molecules in our own bodies that bind to these receptors (endocannabinoids) may have significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health and disease.

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain and spinal cord and in certain peripheral tissues, while CB2 receptors are found primarily in the immune system.

Some scientists think CBD may be in addition to its binding with the CB1 receptors the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid that binds the receptors in your immune system, thus possibly providing a variety of health-related benefits.

Since it’s discovery in 1992, researchers have been investigating the existence of a central regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

            The ECS is made of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous (self-made) cannabis=like compounds and enzymes that create and inactivate them. The ECS is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health.

            Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always same: homeostasis, maintain a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

            So, why is CBD important to the ECS? CBD is important to the ECS because CBD modulates endocannabinoid tone and may help keep healthy people healthy.

No,  CBD is a Phyto cannabinoid that is non-psychotic (it does not result in  feelings of euphoria). It is completely safe and has remarkable safety  profile. THC is the main psychoactive component derived from cannabis responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. Thus, it is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD or CBD oil extracted from industrial hemp plants, as they only have minuscule traces of THC.

 FYI: The high is caused by THC. Because of this, it is the perfect option for parents, workers, and anyone else who does not want to compromise their mental clarity. CBD offers non-toxic, virtually side-effect free, natural benefits for individuals who want to avoid or reduce the number of pharmaceuticals they are taking.

Hempseed oil is manufactured from hemp seeds and contains LOW to NO  concentrations of cannabinoids(CBD). It is used for a variety of things such as: beauty products, anti-inflammatory,  lubricants, paints and as a food. It is not the best type of CBD Hemp oil to help with your health concerns.   If you are not having results, this is probably why. 

Hemp oil is an extraction process from the agricultural hemp aerial plant parts. This oil may contain higher concentrations of Phyto cannabinoids such as CBD.

Not all hemp CBD products are the same.   Their are lots of CBD products on the market that don't use the correct part of the plant to give you the  correct benefits you are seeking help with. Be CAUTIOUS and know what to look for.

A full spectrum oil is when you have CBD but do not take out other cannabinoids as well. Their are over 100 other cannabinoids.  Full spectrum means it’s not just pure CBD on its own. Full spectrum means there are other cannabinoids left in it as well along with many essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, flavonioids and terpenes. So therefore has more health benefits.

Yes in all 50 states. Under the 2014 US Farm Act (The Farm Act) CBD produced from Hemp is legal. Additionally, pursuant to sections 538 and 773 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (the Funding Act), federal funds cannot be used “to prohibit the transportation, processing, sale, or use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated in accordance with section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, within or outside the State in which the industrial hemp is grown or cultivated.” CBD from this “Farm Act” path is thus not only legal in the state in which the hemp is grown, but also at the federal level throughout the US.

In addition, The 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law by President Trump on December 20, 2018. This bill legalizes industrial hemp that has a THC concentration of no more than 0.3% and removes CBD from schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act.

Yes, CBD oil does help with CECD is a condition where an individual has a lower amount of endogenous cannabinoids than is considered necessary to promote health and well-being. Scientists now believe CECD may play a role in the following conditions: Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, migraines, Multiple Sclerosis, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, neuropathy, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, motion sickness and autism. Many of these
conditions are treated with a variety of medications that have serious side effects. As research develops and CECD is found to be the culprit for these conditions, CBD would help increase endocannabinoids in the body without many of the risks associated with pharmaceuticals side effects. 

Clinical data suggests that CBD oil can be safely administered over a wide range of doses with no known fatal overdose levels.

The most common negative side effects of CBD are drowsiness and dry mouth, but these often go away after a couple of weeks.

Agricultural hemp has tall, bamboo like, thick stocks, very thin leaves, and little to no flowers. Defined as a cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC, hemp is grown mainly to make textiles, food & oils, and does not get you “high”. Growing agricultural hemp has less restrictions than marijuana, which allows to be grown in larger scales and outdoors.

Marijuana plants tend to be shorter plants and are grown for their flowers. The THC content is higher in these plants and is mainly used recreationally, however, some states have legislation in place to allow marijuana for medical use with a recommendation from a doctor. Because of the restrictions regarding marijuana, growing these plants can be extremely difficult and leave an enormous carbon footprint, depending on the growing practices. 

There are a variety of methods and forms available to administer CBD.


Inhalation–through vaporization–is the fastest-acting method of administration. Pharmacological effects occur within 5-20 minutes of inhalation.

Peak effect: 15-30 minutes
Duration: 2-3 hours


Oral administration is one of the strongest delivery methods out there because CBD is metabolized by the liver, making it more bioaccessible.

Peak effect: 2-6 hours
Duration: 4-12 hours


Topical forms are typically used as creams or lotions to treat localized pain and discomfort, delivering active ingredients to the bloodstream through the skin.

Peak effect: 1 hour
Duration: 3-4 hours


Sublingual forms are administered under the tongue and may be faster acting as the CBD is absorbed into the blood through the mucosal membrane in the mouth.

Peak effect: 15 minutes
Duration: 6-8 hours

No, your products do not require refrigeration and should be kept in a dark, cool place.  

Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from plants. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced naturally in the human body. One example of an endocannabinoid is anandamide, or “the bliss molecule”. This
molecule activates the CB1 receptor. Benefits to activating this receptor include: relieving depression,
increasing myelin formation, lowering intestinal inflammation, decreasing intestinal permeability, lowering blood pressure, lowering anxiety. Anandamide has been shown to stop the proliferation of breast cancer cells, promote anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects, and increases neurogenesis. It also plays a role in memory and forgetting, sometimes due to post traumatic stress disorder are a few examples.
