FAQ

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant. It is one of over 100 compounds known as cannabinoids, which are unique to the hemp plant. Unlike THC, which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects. CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant and can be used in various forms such as oil, capsules, edibles, and more. Some people use CBD as a nutritional supplement or as a potential wellness product. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the FDA does not approve CBD products for medical use and more research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBD. Additionally, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before using any CBD products.

What does the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) do?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system found in the body that plays a role in regulating various physiological processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood, and sleep. It’s composed of three main components: endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes.

Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that are similar in structure to the cannabinoids found in hemp. They are produced by the body and interact with receptors throughout the body to regulate physiological processes.

Receptors are protein molecules found on the surface of cells that receive signals from endocannabinoids and other signaling molecules. There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, called CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system and peripheral tissues.

Enzymes are responsible for breaking down endocannabinoids once they have done their job.

The ECS is believed to play a role in maintaining homeostasis, or balance, in the body. It’s thought that when the ECS is not functioning properly, it may contribute to a range of health conditions. Some researchers believe that CBD may interact with the ECS to help promote balance and support overall health, but more research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBD on the ECS

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is a liquid extract or infusion of the hemp plant that contains high concentrations of CBD, or cannabidiol. The oil is typically extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of the hemp plant using a process called CO2 extraction. CBD oil can be consumed by placing a few drops under the tongue, or it can be added to food or drinks. It can also be used topically. CBD oil is not approved by the FDA for medical use and is considered a food supplement. It is commonly used as a wellness product and some people use it as a nutritional supplement. It’s important to keep in mind that more research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBD oil, and it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before using any CBD products.

What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are both members of the cannabis family, but they are different varieties of the plant. The main difference between hemp and marijuana is the amount of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, they contain. THC is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana that is responsible for the “high” associated with its use.

Hemp plants contain less than 0.3% THC, while marijuana plants typically contain between 5-35% THC. This means that hemp does not have the psychoactive properties of marijuana and will not produce a “high.” Instead, hemp is grown for its fibers, seeds, and CBD oil. It’s used for a wide range of industrial and commercial products such as clothing, paper, biofuel, building materials, and even food.

Marijuana, on the other hand, is grown for its buds, which are used for medical or recreational purposes. It’s typically grown indoors, with the plants often kept under intense lighting, the plants are kept short and bushy to maximize the amount of buds produced.

Additionally, hemp is legal to grow and sell in the United States, while marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, although some states have legalized it for medical and/or recreational use.

What percentage of cannibinoids are in your products?

Our raw extracts have varying percentages of cannabinoid content. They normally range between  80-99%.This however has no effect on how much pure cannabinoids go into each bottle of oil. If we have a 50% extract, we’ll put twice as much of that extract in the formulation compared to if we used a 100% extract. The final amount of actual cannabinoids in a bottle will always be the same despite the variation in percentage of the raw extract.

How safe are your producs?

Hemp is considered by many to be generally safe. There are some studies that suggest CBD can impact certain prescription medications and at high doses can cause minor side effect like anxiety, fatigue, diarrhea, and appetite changes. That said, please consult with your physician before using any CBD product.

Which of your CBD products should I get?

Our CBD Capsules, CBD Oils, and CBD Gummies are made for oral consumption. If you don’t like our flavors of the oil options, capsules or gummies are a great alternative. CBD oils are to be applied under the tongue, and held for 60-90 seconds before being swallowed. CBD Capsules can be swallowed whole with a drink of water. Please see our product pages for specific information on how to use our CBD oils and other CBD products.
