Frequently Asked Questions About CBD
(…and about ZOHKO, too!)
Are cannabinoids naturally occurring in our bodies?
Yes cannabinoid receptors already exist in our central nervous system and immune cells. Mammals have naturally occurring cannabinoids in breast milk and during pregnancy so our bodies have these specific cannabinoid receptors which allow us to beneficially interact with the CBD in our products. The interaction between cannabinoids and the cannabinoid receptors in our bodies is called the endocannabinoid system.
Are your ingredients organic?
Most are, but some aren’t. We try our best to respect mother earth, after all, we wouldn’t have a playground without her!
Can CBD make you high?
No, CBD will not make you high as commonly associated with cannabis. CBD comes from the same plant, but is in a very different category than THC which is what actually produces the commonly known psychoactive effects of cannabis. ZOHKO CBD contains 0.3% THC or less, so it is not nearly a sufficient amount to produce any psychoactive effects.
Can CBD react to any of my other medications?
The majority of the studies and emerging science indicate CBD oil is safe for use and consumption. However there is evidence that suggests it can change the speed and process by which you metabolize other medications, thus it is always advised to ask your doctor if you are taking any current medication. Since grapefruits can have a similar effect, If your doctor has warned you about consuming grapefruit with any of your medications, it is a strong sign that you need to talk with your doctor about taking that medication in tandem with CBD oil.

Can you fail a drug test due to CBD?
Most work place drug screens are testing for THC specifically, so hemp products which have small traces of THC are not detected. ZOHKO CBD products contain 0.3% THC or less, so in most cases it will not show up at all. However, similar to the rare cases of testing positive for opioids because you had a poppyseed bagel that morning, you cannot completely guarantee THC will be completely absent in a drug test. The amount of THC stored in fat cells depends on each individual’s persons metabolism so a timeline or definitive answer is not possible. Contact your health care provider before consuming CBD if you are subject to drug testing.

How do you extract CBD?
ZOHKO CBD uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction to pull CBD (and other phytochemicals) from the plant. CO2 acts like a solvent at certain temperatures and pressures but possesses none of the dangers. The cannabinoids produced are potent and free of chlorophyll with minimal risk of contaminants, including residues of solvents like alcohol and butane used in less sophisticated extraction processes.
How long does 1 bottle of ZOHKO energy go for?
Approximately 30 days if you average 1 pill per day.
How long does it take to see improvements?
In some cases, the beneficial effects of CBD can be felt in less than an hour, while others will take several days or weeks to notice. Overall it is commonly noted that the most immediate effect is feeling relaxed and calm, and some recommend taking CBD in the evening for their first dose to see how your body reacts. Each individual reacts differently and may notice certain benefits different than others. Unlike ingredients that build tolerance, CBD works differently by accumulating over time in the endocannabinoid system receptors. This explains why people feel stronger effects over time with regular use.
How much caffeine is in a ZOHKO CBD Energy capsule?
Each ZOHKO CBD Energy capsule contains 100mg of caffeine – about the same caffeine as a cup of coffee. The addition of CBD, Dynamine™, B12, rhodiola, spirulina and ginseng combine to form a potent energy formula without jitters or a crash. Due to the caffeine content, we recommend that healthy adults do not exceed 3 capsules in a 24 hour period.
How much CBD should I take?
There is no exact formula for the dosage of CBD as the dosage will vary on the individuals body weight, chemistry, and also the potency of the CBD itself. Individuals usually notice results after becoming familiar with the product and finding their “sweet spot” which reaps the most benefits for them. When beginning to take CBD, start with a low dosage and adjust as needed. It is not uncommon that it could take a couple weeks to feel effects. Don’t get discouraged; we suggest taking ZOHKO daily for 4-6 weeks to get the most from the product.
How much is too much?
Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids are known to be non-toxic, with no known fatal overdose levels ever reported. However, CBD oil isn’t the only active ingredient in ZOHKO Energy. Long-term use or high doses of ginseng may cause headaches, dizziness, stomach upset, and other symptoms. Up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That’s roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee. We suggest you approach all ZOHKO Energy use with moderation and under the supervision of a qualified health professional.
How should I store my CBD products?
We recommend you store you ZOHKO in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight such as a cabinet or pantry. The refrigerator is another great location to keep your CBD since it’s even cooler.
How should I take CBD oil?
Most commonly it is ingested orally through an oil tincture, capsule or edible. Balms/salves are also available which you rub on your affected external area. Balms are another great way to reap the benefits of CBD, although more often associated with pain or inflammation. Each ZOHKO product has its own specific method of application and frequency and comes with detailed instructions which you will need to read to understand fully.
Is CBD addictive?
CBD is not addictive. In November 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a 27-page report on CBD. They concluded that not only is CBD not dangerous, it is also not addictive. You can read the WHO full report here. https://www.who.int/medicines/access/controlled-substances/5.2_CBD.pdf
Is CBD legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law in December 2018, effectively legalizing hemp at the federal level by removing it from the federal list of controlled substances and classifying it as an agricultural commodity. As a result, CBD from hemp is legal nationwide.
Is CBD safe for other animals such as pets?
Yes! CBD will benefit your pets in very similar ways. It is suggested to make sure that the CBD is not mixed with anything else you are not sure is safe to give to your pet and that you give a smaller dosage relative to their size. No overdose effects have been noted, but in order to best utilize and find a proper dosage, it is best to start low.
Is there an expiration date for your products?
Some ZOHKO products have expiration dates while others have manufacturing dates. In the abscense of an expiration date, if a product is stored properly in a cool, dry place out of sunlinght, it should last up to 1 year without any degradation.
Is ZOHKO CBD Energy entirely vegan?
Yes, our products specifically are completely vegan. This includes our capsules which do not include gelatin of any sort.
What are the potential benefits of CBD?
CBD has not been specifically approved for any condition by the FDA. However, among the many benefits that our users experience, some of the main ones are: a sense of calm and focus; help in recovery from exercise-induced inflammation; relief from everyday stresses; and support for healthy sleep cycles. ZOHKO is a broad-spectrum cannabinoid extract with CBD and other cannabinoids and beneficial plant compounds like flavonoids and terpenes. Since research shows that using the whole plant maximizes benefits delivered throughout the body and supplies additional wellness components, we ensure you receive as much whole-plant goodness as possible.
What are the quality tests in which your products go through?
We test ZOHKO products for phytochemical content, pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and microbial contamination.
What does CBD stand for?
CBD stands for cannabidiol which is one of the natural cannabinoids found in the cannabis sativa plant. Cannabis sativa is a specific strain of cannabis which is the basis of the hemp industry.
What does the endocannabinoid system do?
The endocannabinoid system is like a lock-and-key system. This is because there are two groups of receptors CB1/CB2, which can only take in or “lock” with certain cannabinoids each producing unique biological functions and effects. CB1 receptors are found mostly in the brain creating the psychoactive effects of cannabis. CB2 receptors, which are targeted by CBD, are found throughout the body and carry out most of the other biological functions which cannabinoids serve such as regulating appetite, sleep, pain etc. CBD cannot bind to the CB1 receptors in our brains which is why it does not produce any psychoactive effects.
What exactly is CBD?
It is one of the two most abundant naturally occurring cannabinoids in cannabis stativa. Contrary to the other most abundant cannabinoid – THC – it is non-intoxicating and non psychoactive. Although both are extracted from the same plant, the THC traces in ZOHKO CBD products measure at 0.3% or less – thus producing no psychoactive effects.
What shipping options do you offer?
Our standard shipping to the 48 contiguous States takes 3 – 5 business days. Expedited 2 or 3-day delivery options are also available. Orders placed by 1pm Eastern US time will ship the same day.
When should I take ZOHKO Energy?
In the morning, after lunch for a mid-day boost, or before your next workout or adventure. Be careful, though. Consult a physician first! .
Where can I see your “Full Spectrum CBD” test results?
On our website, visit ZOHKO.Com for all the info you need. Tests are linked to at the bottom of the product pages.
Why does Zohko CBD Energy look so gnarly?
Green is great, it’s the color of life! Our special blend is chock full of chlorophyll, more than any other CBD oil you can find!
Will ZOHKO CBD Energy give me the jitters?
Everybody has a different body, so we aren’t sure. Most people tell us that because ZOHKO Energy has CBD and Dynamine™ in it, it has less “jitter” inducing effects than other energy supplements on the market. We aren’t sure why.
