What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main cannabinoids naturally occurring in the hemp plant. No prescription is needed to purchase CBD products. U.S. Scientists, health professionals, medical patients have used CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions – chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more.

It’s a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that has the ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

Plant cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, bind with this system which helps regulate certain vital functions of the body, including:

  • Sleep

  • Appetite

  • Immune

  • Pleasure

  • Pain

  • Inflammation

  • And more!

When the ECS is in sync, the human body is able to achieve what is called homeostasis, which means your body is operating at optimal human performance.

How is hemp different from Marijuana? / What is the difference between Cannabis, Hemp, & M?

Cannabis is the plant species which is then legally recognized as two different plants, marijuana and hemp. Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than .3% THC. Marijuana contains much higher levels of THC which is the cannabinoid that causes intoxication.

Will CBD make me feel high?

NO, as CBD does not bind well to CB1 receptors found in our brain and central nervous system receptors the way THC does, it does not induce the release of serotonin and dopamine (feelings of euphoria). Instead, CBD binds more readily to CB2 receptors found in our immune cells, promoting more antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefit to the immune system.

What will I feel when I take CBD?

What we’ve learned from our customers and research is that everyone is different when it comes to CBD. While most people report feeling very calm, relaxed or even tired, others may not be affected in that way.

How do I know which product is right for me?

It depends on what you are looking to address. Certain CBD products take less time or more time to take effect, which can affect your choice in product. Inhalation and under-the-tongue administration take effect faster than gummies, as they bypass your digestive system and liver. You may choose a faster-acting or a slower-acting CBD product depending on what you would like to address.

You may also choose a product depending on the source of your pain. A topical, for example, is good for fast-acting relief of pulled muscles and achy joints, while a sublingual or edible product would be ideal to address internal inflammation.

What is the difference between isolate, broad spectrum, & full spectrum CBD?

  • Full Spectrum

    • Created from hemp through full plant extraction

    • Includes all active hemp-derived cannabinoids, including <0.3% THC

    • Also contains plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, plant proteins all from original hemp source

    • All compounds work together in what is known as the Entourage Effect to multiply the potential health benefits

  • Broad Spectrum

    • Created by taking Full Spectrum extract and further processing it to remove trace amounts of THC

    • Includes most active hemp-derived cannabinoids, except THC

    • Just like Full Spectrum, all compounds work together in what is known as the Entourage Effect to multiply the potential health benefits

  • Isolate

    • Created by removing all other molecules except CBD from the Full Spectrum extract

    • All that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD with 0.0% THC

What are the serving recommendations?

Dosage varies from person to person, depending on weight and the severity of the condition. Some people take CBD throughout the day, at morning and night, or once daily. If you have a sensitive stomach, you may wish to take sublingual or edible CBD with food.

Individual results vary and serving depends on a variety of factors. We recommend starting low with 5-10 mg of CBD, waiting 3-4 hours, and increasing as necessary to achieve desired effects.

According to survey results, 77% of CBD users are on a daily regimen with the majority taking approximately 10-40mg of CBD daily.

Are there any medication interactions with taking CBD?

CBD and other plant cannabinoids can potentially interact with some pharmaceuticals by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450, a family of liver enzymes. This key enzyme group metabolizes many of the drugs we consume.

CBD interacts with other medications in your body the same way as grapefruit. If you’ve been told not to take your medication with grapefruit, this is due to the compound in grapefruit that can interfere with the metabolism of medications. The compounds in CBD can do the same thing, reducing or increasing the effects of certain prescribed medications. By slowing down how the body metabolizes these drugs, CBD preserves the medication’s durability and prolongs its presence in the body.
