Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?

CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a type of cannabinoid that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant. CBD is extracted from hemp plants, since hemp only contains trace amounts of THC, the molecule responsible for the psychoactive effects associated with the use of cannabis.

Is CBD legal?

Yes. All of our products contain less than 0.3% THC. CBD oil, capsules, edibles, vapor products and more are legal in all 50 states.

Can I get high from CBD?

No. CBD oil only contains trace amounts of THC, the molecule responsible for the psychoactive effects of the cannabis plant. All of our CBD products are derived from industrial hemp products that produce very low levels of THC and contain other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBDa.

Is CBD the same as medical marijuana?

No. While both CBD oil and medical marijuana are derived from the Cannabis Sativa L. plant, the effects of each product are quite different. Medical marijuana plants are bred to produce flowers and buds, which result in much higher concentrations of THC, the psychoactive compound that produces a high. CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp which is bred not to produce buds or flowers, and therefore produces very little THC.

What are the benefits of CBD?

While we are not allowed to make any claims about the medicinal properties of CBD products, some studies suggest that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, is anti-epileptic and can also be used as an aid to reduce anxiety. CBD oil is also rich in vitamins and other healthy phytocannabinoids that provide natural therapeutic benefits.

How does CBD work?

Scientific experiments have lead some scientists to believe that the cannabinoids in CBD may work in similar ways to the endocannabinoids produced in the human body of healthy people. While there is still much study to be done, the indications are positive at this point.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating homeostasis or “balance” of neuronal activity and other physiological processes in the human body. Naturally occurring endocannabinoids, transmitted across a vast network of receptors in the brain, central and peripheral nervous system, are believed to play a regulatory role in the management of pain, inflammation, memory, emotion, sleep cycles and metabolic functions. The process of releasing endocannabinoids throughout the systems of the body is believed to act as a dimmer switch which constantly works to bring balance in the body.

Plant-based cannabinoids, such as those found in CBD and THC, can work with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system, which researchers believe may explain many of the physiological effects reported from the use of the cannabis plant.

When the endocannabinoid system isn’t functioning properly, balance is lost, causing disease. Scientists believe that enodcannabinoid deficiency may be the root cause of many debilitating conditions including migraines, fibromyalgia, IBS and multiple sclerosis.

Recent studies have shown that active compounds from other plant species such as Carrot (Daucus carota), kava (Piper methyscum), New Zealand liverwort (Radula marginata), Ginger (Zingiber officinale) and Black pepper (Piper nigrum) also contain compounds that can interact with the endocannibinoid system.

How do I take CBD?

CBD products are most often taken orally, either directly or mixed with food. We also offer a CBD vapor product that can be consumed by vaping the CBD oil from a cartridge. CBD capsules are available for those who want the benefits of CBD oil without the earthy flavors associated with drops or other oral products.

How much CBD should I take?

Just like many vitamins that are designed to provide benefits when taken regularly, CBD works best when it is taken on a regular basis. The amount you take will depend on many factors including your overall health, weight and goals. We suggest starting with a low dosage of CBD and evaluating how well it works for you. Gradually increase your dose over time to maximize your benefits. Remember to seek the advice of your physician or health care professional before adding CBD or any supplement to your diet.
