FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A CANNABINOID OR PHYTOCANNABINOID?
Phytocannabinoids refer to any cannabinoid that is naturally occurring within the cannabis family of plants. Hemp contains over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids—which when ingested, inhaled or applied topically—can interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This central regulatory system is known to affect bodily processes such as appetite, mood and sleep. On it’s own, the body naturally produces its own cannabinoids that bind to cannabinoid receptors in both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. This existing internal infrastructure is what enables cannabinoids to provide such powerful benefits, allowing them to “jump start” this central regulatory system. One of the more researched cannabinoids is Cannabidiol (CBD).
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PYHTOCANANBINOIDS ?
Cannabinoids like CBD work by stimulating the body’s own endocannabinoid system, creating physical changes within that studies indicate can be beneficial to: helping our immune system, protecting our brains, managing our homeostasis, and helping with pain relief, headaches, PMS, stress, anxiety, etc.
WHY IS “FULL SPECTRUM” OR “WHOLE PLANT” HEMP EXTRACT IMPORTANT?
The health benefits of full-spectrum hemp go beyond it being a source of CBD. The array of cannabinoids and other natural constituents found in full-spectrum hemp oil work have been shown in studies to work together in what’s referred to as the “entourage effect.” Together, these compounds work harmoniously to magnify their therapeutic properties. The complex mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work synergistically to encourage homeostasis and balance in our health.
Our hemp extract is naturally rich in Cannabidiol (CBD), and also contains Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabichromene (CBC), as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and essential amino acids.
WHAT ARE TERPENES?
Terpenes are organic compounds found in all of earth’s flora, better known as aroma and taste molecules (for example, they make a lemon smell like a lemon). They’ve already been used medicinally for centuries, and in recent years, researchers believe that terpenes are equally as therapeutic as CBD. Using “full spectrum” extract provides the entourage effect, and research shows combining the two can have very therapeutic results.
CAN YOU GET HIGH FROM CBD?
No. Our products contain 0% THC ( the mind-altering component of cannabis) We source our CBD from industrial hemp, where advanced technology allows for the removal of any trace amounts of THC without disturbing the other naturally synergistic compounds.
IS IT LEGAL TO USE CBD?
The 2014 United States Farm Bill classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC. Our CBD is grown under US State Department of Agriculture oversight in accordance with the US Farm Bill Section 7606 and contains 0.0% THC (THC-FREE) . Since it’s derived from industrial hemp and doesn’t contain any THC, it is not included in the Controlled Substance’s Act definition of marijuana.
