Is CBD oil legal?
Yes, the hemp-derived CBD that we use in our products is federally legal. However, it must contain less than 0.3% THC. Additionally, states are allowed to regulate however they see fit. At STB, we respect everyone’s belief in cannabis and do not ship to South Dakota, Idaho, or Iowa because of their ban on CBD. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Will I get high from CBD?
Absolutely not! CBD is a therapeutic and medicinal property in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and has a variety of benefits. THC (Delta 9) is the molecule that gets you high, not CBD.
What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Appearance-wise, there is no difference between hemp and cannabis, also known as marijuana. They are both part of the Cannabis Sativa family. What differentiates them is their percentage of THC. Compliant hemp must fall under 0.3% THC to be classified as legal hemp.
Will using CBD products show up on a drug test?
CBD does not show up on drug tests. However, all drug testing agencies differ significantly for professional athletes. Please consult with your employer, athletic organization, or testing agency for regulations surrounding CBD.
What are the most important factors to consider when buying CBD products?
The quality of CBD extract is determined by the source of hemp and where it is grown. Additionally, the testing protocol of a company is crucial to ensure products are free of microbes, pesticides, and metals.
Beyond the safety of your CBD and other cannabinoids, you want to ensure all ingredients used in the products are NOT artificial or pharmaceutical grade.
What is CBN?
CBN (cannabinol) is a minor cannabinoid. This non-intoxicating compound has shown numerous benefits as a sleep-aid and anti-inflammatory, especially in conjunction with terpenes. It may support sleep and better rest.
What is CBG?
CBG (cannabigerol) is a less abundant minor cannabinoid thought to relieve inflammation and combat pain. It interacts with CB1 & CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain to cause therapeutic benefits.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in plants. They are responsible for giving lavender its distinctly relaxing fragrance, and cannabis its earthy, skunky aroma. There are over 100 different terpenes in the cannabis plant. At different plant growth stages, certain terpenes interact with the various cannabinoids to produce or enhance certain beneficial properties. This is known as the ”entourage effect”. Terpenes are typically filtered out during the CBD distillation process, so we reintroduce our own proprietary terpene blends when formulating our products. This allows us to isolate and amplify the desired effects, whether intended for focus and clarity or more restful, restorative sleep.
What is the "Entourage Effect"?
The entourage effect refers to the interaction between the hemp or cannabis plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes. This interaction serves to heighten the therapeutic impact on the body.
Do you test on animals?
We never test our products on animals. However, animals can benefit from CBD in the same way as humans. Stay tuned.
How much STB product should I take, and how often?
Yes, you can use all of our products together in conjunction. For example, you can utilize our Balance in the morning, Relief throughout the day, and end your evening with REM.

How long does it take to feel the benefits of STB products?
Topicals have shown effectiveness in as little as 10-15 minutes. Tinctures typically reveal their benefits in 30-60 minutes.
Will I need a medical marijuana card to purchase STB?
No. We can deliver directly to your doorstep.
Are STB products organic?
Unfortunately, our products are not classified as organic because hemp extract is still not recognized as an organic product even though the hemp crops are grown organically. However, all of our non-hemp ingredients are USDA organic.
Do STB products have an expiration date?
They do not, but it is encouraged to utilize STB products within a year. After time, the potency of cannabinoids can degrade. What that means is if the product is too old, it may not pack the punch it originally had.
