Frequently asked questions

What is CBD?


CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol which is one of over 50 active chemical compounds (or ‘cannabinoids’) in the hemp/cannabis plant. It’s usually the second-most abundant cannabinoid, behind THC. CBD is not intoxicating. CBD can be produced from a hemp plant or a marijunana plant. Both hemp and marijuana are two different variations of cannabis species Cannabis sativa L. CBD is typically found in the seeds and stem of cannabis, not in the flowering buds. CBD is abundant and natrually occuring in both hemp and marijuana; however, the hemp plant typically is more highly concentrated with CBD. We will not sell CBD in the following states in which laws are not favoralble: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island, Utah, & Washington. All Texas Bud-eez products are made from a hemp plant.




Is there any organization dedicated to CBD or Delta-8 THC Research?


Yes, Project CBD is a California-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical uses of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Project CBD has the most comprehensive resources for CBD and THC to include: CBD & THC Basics, conditions in which CBD or THC has been an effective medical treatment, the science behind medical-cannabis, the safety of this an other cannibinoids and a host of other articles.




What is Delta-8 THC and how does it differ from Delta-9 THC?


The difference between Delta-8-THC and Delta-9-THC is small. There's a double carbon bond on the eighth carbon in the chain that makes up the compound, as opposed to the ninth. According to The National Cancer Institute, Delta-8 is defined as an isomer of hemp "of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) with antiemetic, anxiolytic, appetite-stimulating, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties." They also stated that "this agent exhibits a lower psychotropic potency than Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), the primary form of THC found in cannabis." The structure of Delta-9-THC and Delta-8-THC - Life Sciences High Times calls the Delta-8-THC “the hemp industry’s latest hype.” Discover Magazine reports that “many cannabis users are turning to an obscure analog of Delta-9-THC.” In April 2020, Delta-8-THC became the subject of its own subreddit, r/Delta8, which now has more than 11,000 members. The hype seems to hinge on the idea that Delta-8-THC delivers, per the cannabis platform Weedmaps, a “smooth high with no anxiety or paranoia.” (Anxiety, paranoia, and psychosis are all symptoms tied to high dosages of THC). Peter Grinspoon is a primary care physician at Harvard Medical School. He’s also on the board of the advocacy group, Doctors for Cannabis Regulation. Dr. Ginspooon believes Delta-8-THC does have “vast” potential. The Difference The molecular difference between Delta-8-THC and its famous sister is small, but it’s enough to change how it binds to the brain. Grinspoon estimates it is about “two-thirds” as potent as Delta-9-THC. THC binds tightly to CB1 receptors, which are found primarily in the brain, but present throughout the body. Those receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system – a network of receptors and chemicals that influence a variety of experiences including, mood, pain sensation, or stress. THC’s chemical structure is similar to that of anandamide, a chemical that allows the brain to send messages as part of the endocannabinoid system. That similarity allows it to bond tightly. The structure of Delta-8-THC is slightly altered, so it doesn’t bind as well, explains Gabriella Gobbi, a professor at McGill University’s Department of Psychology. “It’s for this reason that people think it’s less psychotropic – it has less of the effect of a high,” she says.




Will CBD, Delta-8 or Delta-10 THC cause me to fail a drug test?


Texas Bud-eez products contain a value of 0.3% or less Delta-9 THC, there is a small amount of Delta-9 THC that may cause you to fail a drug test. Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC is chemically different from Delta-9 THC by only a few atomic bonds. Please consult the administer of your drug test in order to receive further clarification. Texas Bud-eez stance is you should assume you will fail a drug test for THC.




Do all Products come with a Certificate of Analysis?


Yes all products come with a Certificate of Analysis. The certificate of analyisis is a lab report, provided by an independent 3rd-party lag, listing all the chemical compounds traceable to each distillate batch of product. Texas Bud-eez prides it business on providing products that are safe and independently lab tested. All of our products are Non GMO, pesticide, solvent and heavy metal free. Most competitors do not provide a complete Certificate of Analysis. To make sure product is safe, they must list the testing results for chemicals required by the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.....not just the cannabinoid profile. The cannabinoid profile does not prove the safety of the product. Below is an example from the lab Texas Bud-eez uses. You will see we go to great lengths to provide product that goes through extensive testing. Just click on the image below and it will take you to the 4 pages of detail that will be shown for a single product. Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 THC and CBD Certificate of Analysis




What are Terpenes and how are they used in your product?


According to Leafly, terpenes are defined as, "aromatic oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine" and they are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like CBD and THC. There are over 100 terpenes found in the medical-cannabis plant and every strain of the medical-cannabis plant contains a unique terpene type and composition. Texas Bud-eez terpenes are used to create scents, flavors and may play a role in differentiating the effects of various medical-cannabis strains.




Will Delta-8 or Delta-10 THC get me high?


Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC only differ from Delta-9 THC by one chemical bond and can get you high. The majority of consumers report the effects of Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC to be mild in comparrison to Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC is typically derived from Marijuana, which is illegal in the state of Texas. Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC are derived from Hemp and are thus legal in the state of Texas




Are Vape-Cartridges Safe for Consumption?


Anytime you injest any product into your lungs there is a health risk. According to an article published by the CDC, "8 deaths were reported in 29 states as of December 2020". Report Summary: Vitamin E acetate was found to be common amoung the individuals that suffered. The CDC reports in this article, "Vitamin E acetate usually does not cause harm when ingested as a vitamin supplement or applied to the skin. However, previous research suggests that when vitamin E acetate is inhaled, it may interfere with normal lung functioning." The contamination is out of the supply chain for illicit market THC vape-carts, the CDC said Oct. 30. “The latest national and state findings suggest products containing THC, particularly those obtained off the street or from other informal sources (e.g. friends, family members, illicit dealers), are linked to most of the cases and play a major role in the outbreak.” Some of these illicit cartridges were found to contain pesticides, opioids, poisons, and toxins Texas Bud-eez can confirm that Vitamin E acetate, pesticides, opioids, poisons and toxins is not used in our cartridges and for each product we provide an independent 3rd-party lab to test for these constituents. Below is a video provide by Chris Notap. The focus of the video is nicotine-carts; however, it does an excellent job demonstrating the effect on the lungs compared to smoking.
