What is CBD?

1What is CBD?

CBD is an abbreviation for “cannabidiol” – a component found in cannabis, that has no psychoactive effects (no marijuana ‘high’ because it is NOT marijuana). CBD has been shown to have properties, when ingested or applied topically, that may benefit your health. CBD is found in greater amounts in “hemp”, which is a type of cannabis, but not the psychoactive strain of plant often referred to as “marijuana”. Hemp is a strain of plant that grows much taller, and can be used for its fiber, oil, and its seeds. Because CBD can be found in greater amounts in hemp (versus other strains of cannabis), that is what is used for the CBD hemp oil.

2Where does CBD come from?

CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 80+ chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. We recommend storing our products in a cool, dry location, out of open sunlight. The typical medicine cabinet or pantry should be fine.

Because our oils are extracted from hemp, you might hear this type of product referred to in a few ways: CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or hemps extracts. CBD oil is unique from typical hempseed oil sold cheaply in the grocery store because it utilizes all parts of the hemp plant, instead of only the seeds. This method of extraction produces a more nutritionally robust oil.

3Is CBD legal?

The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and it’s derivative CBD) to be a nutritional product, since they are derived from industrial hemp plants. If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state.

4Full spectrum CBD vs pure CBD (0% THC formula)

FULL SPECTRUM CBD:

Our original full-spectrum formula contains a potent combination of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, thus providing the “entourage effect” often referred to in medical studies. It’s like a beautiful and harmonious symphony of players. It’s the exact opposite of how you might usually think of “drug interactions.” Non-toxic, safe, and field tested.
 
PURE CBD (THC FREE FORMULA)
 
We offer this isolate 0% THC formula for those who want only the compound Pure Hemp. It’s suitable for those who may be tested or those who have an intolerance for other plant proprieties.
5What is broad spectrum CBD?

Broad Spectrum CBD is CBD that has been extracted from the cannabis plant with all of the other compounds from the plant except for THC. That means it contains terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids from the plant.

7What is endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.

There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “ananda” which translates to “bliss”).

For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.

CBD Usage

1What is CBD used for?

Because of FDA regulations, we are unable to specifically address these questions. Most of our customers do, or have done, considerable research on their own, which is why we say “for those who know…” there is a plethora of information available. Simply search “CBD and__” and you’ll find a wide range of useful data.

2Is CBD safe?

CBD has been studied and tested for its safety and current research shows CBD is safe and well tolerated in healthy individuals.

3How much should I take?

An effective dosage can range from as little as a few milligrams of CBD-enriched cannabis oil to a gram or more. Begin with a small dose of CBD oil, especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis. Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount.

4How do I use hemp tinctures?

Personal use:

  • Add drops under your tongue
  • Apply to skin

5Will hemp get me high?

6Does CBD react negatively with certain medications?

At this time, there are no known adverse interactions with medication but talk to your advising physician if you have questions about using CBD while on medication.

7What are the side effects?

Many small-scale studies have looked into the safety of CBD in adults and found that it is well tolerated across a wide range of doses.

There have been no significant side effects in the central nervous system or effects on vital signs and mood among people who use it either slightly or heavily.
