FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the most well known of about 100 different phytochemicals found in the cannabis plant, known as phytocannabinoids. It is non-psychoactive, meaning it will not get you high. CBD is similar to a compound that our bodies produce naturally called endocannabinoids. Not only are cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, they’re also naturally occurring in nature in broccoli, kale, etc.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
CBD works because we have an endocannabinoid system in our bodies. This endocannabinoid system is responsible for our homeostasis or the body’s ability to maintain itself and function properly. It is involved in regulating things such as appetite, pain sensation, memory and mood. There are actually receptors all over our body in our brain, stomach, nervous system, and organs that actually have cell receptors for the ‘cannabinoids’. By using CBD infused supplements, we can help jump start this system to help with pain, inflammation, stress and sleep.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING CBD TOPICALLY?
CBD is an anti-inflammatory with anti-oxidant properties, which is great for the skin, joints and muscles. Our full-spectrum CBD oil is also naturally filled with vitamins A, D, and E and contains high levels of essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6), which all work to enhance skin health and overall youthfulness.
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.
