Which “carrier” oils do Core Roots products use?
Sublingual products (tinctures administered under the tongue) mix CBD in with a carrier oil

Is CBD legal in New Jersey?
CBD products are fully legal to purchase in New Jersey!
CBD products, in fact, are fully legal to purchase in most states. The rules differ from state to state, as each one writes its own legislation regarding the substance. For example, while CBD is legal in New Jersey, CBD products are unavailable in Alabama unless the person suffers from debilitating seizures. In reality, very few states disallow CBD altogether.
This patchwork of regulations occurred because the federal government contradicts itself in its laws. The federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) classifies all “marijuana extract” as a Schedule I, highly-addictive substance with no known medical value. However, the Farm Bill greenlights extracts that come from what’s called “industrial hemp,” which is cannabis sativa bred to have .3% or less THC (what gets you high). Core Roots CBD is derived from industrial hemp.
“But wait,” you might think, “I’ve seen CBD for sale. Are these businesses breaking the law?”
Well, no, probably not. In many cases, CBD is still legal to sell under state laws, including in New Jersey.

FAQs about CBD
What does CBD stand for?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa.
Where does CBD come from?
Core Roots products are derived from organic industrial hemp, which is the cannabis sativa plant bred to have no intoxicating cannabinoids (THC). By law, our products have .3% or less THC, trace amounts that do not produce the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis.
Can CBD get me high?
No. Cannabidiol is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid. Core Roots CBD products contain less than .3% of THC, the cannabinoid that delivers the “high” effect. Such trace amounts do not produce the “high” feeling.
Why is CBD so important for the body?
Every person has endocannabinoid receptors, and every mammal produces cannabinoids. Only discovered in 1992, researchers are still discovering more about this system and its incredible effect within our bodies every day.
Cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system are important for maintaining homeostasis in the body. The endocannabinoid system has receptors from head to toe, which explains why CBD has been researched for its potential to address such a wide array of ailments, from arthritis to autism.
What are the main health benefits of CBD?
CBD is celebrated for its many healing properties, including:
- Anti-inflammatory properties: CBD can help reduce inflammation in the body. Some people find relief from arthritis, IBS/IBD, and other pain and discomfort caused by inflammation, as well as inflammatory conditions such as eczema or rosacea.
- Anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties: Researchers believe that CBD binds to the same receptors that activate serotonin in the brain, making it a possible remedy for those with anxiety or who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- Sleep-encouraging properties: CBD may play a role in regulating non-REM sleep duration, which leads some Core Roots CBD customers to use our products to help combat insomnia.
- Antioxidant and neuroprotective properties: Studies have suggested that CBD could reduce damage to the body and brain. Some Core Roots customers use CBD as part of their regular health and wellness routine.
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Consult a qualified medical professional before taking CBD.
How do Core Roots customers use CBD?
Our customers report back to us that they use CBD to address several conditions, including:
- Sore joints
- Sore muscles
Consult a qualified medical professional before taking CBD.
How do I know which CBD product is right for me?
It depends on what you are looking to address.
Certain CBD products take less time or more time to take effect, which can affect your choice in product. Inhalation and under-the-tongue administration take effect faster than gummies, as they bypass your digestive system and liver. You may choose a faster-acting or a slower-acting CBD product depending on what you would like to address.
You may also choose a product depending on the source of your pain. A topical, for example, is good for fast-acting relief of pulled muscles and achy joints, while a sublingual or edible product would be ideal to address internal inflammation.

Consult a qualified medical professional before taking CBD.
How do I take sublingual products?
Use the included dropper to place a dose underneath your tongue. Hold the sublingual there for at least 30 seconds before swallowing.
How do I know how much CBD to take?
The dose varies from person to person, depending on weight and the severity of the condition. Some people take CBD throughout the day, at morning and at night, or once per day. Most people start with a low dose and gradually increase week by week. If you have a sensitive stomach, you may wish to take sublingual or edible CBD with food. This dosage calculator may help you define how much CBD to take, but it is not a replacement for advice from a medical professional.
