What is CBD?


CBD is a common non-intoxicating compound produced by cannabis, with a wide range of medical applications. CBD is the second most commonly produced compound in cannabis varieties bred for their medicinal use, and the most common in varieties bred for agriculture (commonly known as hemp). It is of interest to many people for its medicinal value, especially its anti-epileptic, anti-anxiety, and anti-inflammatory effects. It's one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp, and is known for supporting body and mind in various ways.




Can CBD get me high?


No, CBD will not get you high. CBD is naturally non-intoxicating. The feeling that you do get from CBD is relaxation, calm, balance and peace. It's also a great mood lifter, giving you those good vibes.




What's the difference between hemp and marijuna?


Hemp and marijuana look and smell the same. The difference is the chemical compound of THC. Hemp plants contain no more than 0.3 percent (by dry weight) of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). the psychoative substancefound in marijuana. By comparison, marijuana typically contains 5 to 20 percent THC. In other words, Cannabis plants with more than 0.3 percent THC are marijuana. Trace amounts of THC are not enough to cause any intoxication. CBD from hemp provides the same level of endocannbinoid system support without the high, or the risk of marijuna's potential side effects. Hemp is Cannabis. Marijuana is Cannabis. Hemp is NOT Marijuana.




What is the difference between CBD & THC?


CBD is primarily derived from the hemp plant, is non-intoxicating (produces no "high" effects) and is used in a variety of health and wellness products. THC is primary derived from the marijuana plant, can be intoxicating (produces "high" effects and side effects) and is commonly found in recreational or medical marijuana products.




What are the different types of CBD oil?


FULL SPECTRUM CBD: contains all the cannabinoids, plant terpenes (terpenes are the essential oils of the hemp plant. They're the aromatic oils responsible for the different flavors and effects of cannabis), flavonoids (flavonoids are compounds in the hemp plant they're powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits), vitamins and minerals of the original hemp plant. These compounds work together to multiply the potential health benefits of each of the prodcut components. This is known as the entourage effect. Full spectrum CBD also provides omega-3 fatty acids and all 20 essential amino acids. Full spectrum CBD contains trace amounts less than 0.3% THC, this amount is not enough to cause intoxication. BROAD-SPECTRUM CBD Broad-spectrum CBD products take the Full Spectrum hemp extract and further process it to remove all traces of THC. The resulting CBD is 100% THC-free but retains the other naturally occurring beneficial compounds of the original hemp source. Similar to Full Spectrum, these compounds work together to strengthen the potential effects. CBD ISOLATE CBD isolate is cannabidiol in its purest form, a full-spectrum product that has been further processed to remove the plant compounds. All that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD. When choosing CBD products, many people prefer Full-Spectrum or-Broad Spectrum CBD over CBD Isolate because of the potential to benefit from the Entourage Effect. There are more than 400 trace components found in hemp plants, including plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins and minerals. When cannabinoids, plant terpenes, flavonoids and vitamins have the ability to work together, they have the potential to magnify the benefits of the others—strengthening the potential effects. This is called The Entourage Effect: the whole has a greater impact than its individual parts.
