What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. As we’ve discovered more about the human species as well as the plants that we’ve learned of the immense health value that CBD brings to the table. It has quickly become a staple supplement for millions who seek a natural alternative to dangerous pharmaceuticals, alien to nature’s perfect remedies.
Sublingual CBD Oils – also known as CBD Tinctures or CBD Hemp Oil – are the most popular type of CBD products, because of their high bioavailability and rapid absorption. There are many other kinds of products as well, including CBD edibles, CBD topicals, and even CBD-infused Coffee. CBD products have gained immense popularity in health and wellness circles thanks to their natural support of our endocannabinoid system (ECS).
How CBD Works
CBD contains naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD), which is the main therapeutic cannabinoid found in hemp. CBD, along with other specific cannabinoids binds to the cannabinoid receptor sites found in the human body that make up the endocannabinoid (EC) system.
The EC system is an integral part of natural human physiology and is responsible for multiple physiological and mental processes. Unlike synthetic pharmaceutical drugs, cannabis oil and related cannabinoids have no known toxicity level, and their health benefits come without negative side effects.
The positive effects of CBD continue to be studied by scientists. They have already discovered the connection of CBD boosting the function of the cannabinoid receptors to produce soothing, relaxing effects without producing a "high." In some countries, CBD is already classified as a medication due to its proven effectiveness, but it is still currently available in the United States without a prescription through our website.
Many users choose cannabis to manage their long-term health or pain issues, while others supplement daily with healthy CBD to maintain and promote their general well-being, mood and stress levels.
It is non habit-forming, and can be taken daily. It has no psychoactive properties, and will not impair users in any way.
CBD comes in liquid form, complete with full spectrum hemp oil to work synergistically with the concentrated CBD. We believe that our CBD oil delivers health benefits that no other legal hemp product can.
Are products tested for quality and safety?
Yes. All products we carry are third party tested for: Cannabinoid Profiling, Pesticide Testing, Microbiological Screening, Terpene Analysis and Residual Solvent Testing.
Where is the CBD sourced?
The CBD oil is made with certified Organic-standards industrial hemp grown in Colorado, Oregon, and Kentucky and is 100% free of any synthetic or artificial ingredients. Hemp oil from industrial hemp is legal to ship within the United States.
How Are CBD Products Formulated?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 113 cannabinoids unique to the hemp plant. CBD is produced by the stems, leaves and flowers of female hemp plants. Hemp is defined as all cannabis plants with less than 0.3% THC by weight. Unlike the Marijuana plant, hemp has such low THC levels, and is non-psychoactive by definition.
While CBD can be extracted from non-hemp varieties of the plant, hemp-derived CBD is less restricted by the government because of its inherently low levels of THC. CBD from hemp is legal for sale in most US states, while CBD products derived from non-hemp varieties can contain noticeable amounts of THC and are therefore subject to stricter laws and regulations.
CBD and other cannabinoids are produced by the hemp plant because of their unique aromatic and antioxidant activities, which protect the plant from insects, fungus, bacteria, and changes in the environment.
What is CO2 extraction?
The CBD goes through a chemical-free CO2 extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemicals (such as CBD) from a plant. Our process is free of any harsh chemical solvents often used to extract CBD oil. CO2 extraction is environmentally friendly and non-toxic. It is also considered the most expensive and safest plant extraction method in the world.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Whereas marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug, hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, does not cause a high and is not considered to be a drug. Our products undergo CO2 Extraction or Nanotechnology resulting in either 0 or 0.3% THC. Each of our products is clear if there is any trace of THC.
What is the difference between THC and CBD?
Cannabidiol is one of the most critical cannabinoids contained in the cannabis plant. It exists both in agricultural hemp, as well as medical cannabis. Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Whereas marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug, hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, does not cause a high and is not considered to be a drug.
When you ingest CBD for medical purposes, you will more likely experience a relief of your unwanted discomfort, with little or no noticeable effect on your cognitive abilities.
Will CBD make me feel "high?"
No. You will not experience a "high" feeling from ingesting the CBD. The CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp and is non-psychoactive.
Will CBD make me fail a drug test?
CBD is considered to be undetectable in saliva or urine tests. All our products comply with applicable regulations regarding tetrahydrocannabinol content.
Are there any negative side effects?
CBD is safe, non-psychotropic and has no known adverse side effects.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are essential oils responsible for the distinct aromas, flavors, and colors of plants including hemp! They are what give the fruit flavors like Strawberry, Citrus and Mango, but terpenes do more than just deliver delicious flavor. They also determine how a particular strain will affect your body and mind thus having a direct effect on your whole CBD experience! The best part? When combined with terpenes, CBD oil delivers a richer experience by producing a synergistic phenomenon known as The Entourage Effect. In other words, terpenes and CBD work better together than they do individually to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
What are Tinctures?
A CBD tincture is a dietary supplement that comes in liquid form and has a very potent cannabidiol content. Tinctures are created by steeping CBD-rich hemp flowers in high-proof grain alcohol, then cooking over low heat for multiple hours. Vinegar or glycerin can be used in lieu of alcohol, but alcohol really does produce the best tincture in the end. It’s time-consuming but very simple. New extraction are with Co2.
Once the liquid is ready, it’s commonly mixed with a sweet tasting carrier oil like orange or peppermint. On its own, it can be very bitter. The final product should be potent, with a very high CBD content and no more than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). When shopping, keep in mind that a CBD tincture varies greatly from a cannabis tincture, which has all the cannabinoids including THC. A CBD tincture will not be psychoactive, meaning it won't get you high.
What is Entourage Effect?
The Entourage Effect is defined as multiple cannabinoids working together to create an enhanced effect. Therefore, full-spectrum CBD products that include terpenes and flavonoids are expected to work better from an overall health perspective. Including a full spectrum of cannabinoids ensures that the CBD product is better absorbed and acts on all receptors in the endocannabinoid system. However, isolated CBD products may be better suited to managing specific symptoms.
What Are the Benefits of CBD?
It’s important to note that many of these studies were carried out in vitro (outside the body), or were preclinical in nature, reducing the reliability of the results. However, the chemical antioxidant properties of the CBD molecule, as well as its antiepileptic properties, are well-established in the scientific literature. While research into the effects of CBD on specific conditions is important, a broader perspective on the relationship between CBD and the human body is necessary to understand how this unique compound works. Interestingly, many of the conditions that are supposedly helped by CBD have no well-understood cause, from acne to Alzheimer’s disease. However, one of the few common denominators between these conditions is the involvement of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in their causes. The ECS is responsible for setting the baseline activity levels of our immune system and nervous system, which then work to maintain our health. When the ECS falls out of whack, the systems that are regulated by it can begin to malfunction. CBD promotes the normal health and function of the endocannabinoid system, so it’s possible that CBD can help to alleviate the symptoms of conditions that are caused by dysfunction of the endocannabinoid system.
CBD is the subject of thousands of studies and trials, carried out by various institutions to uncover the facts about this dynamic compound and its effects on our bodies. Some of these studies have looked into the effect of CBD on different conditions, including:
What is the Right Amount of CBD For Me?
While most supplements have a single recommended dose, CBD is different. The amount of CBD you take depends on your doctor’s recommendations and your own research into how CBD will work for your unique needs. In general, it’s smart to start with a medium dose of CBD. This way, you can increase or decrease the dose as needed. In addition, it’s recommended to start with one half ML (half a dropper) of CBD oil, because you can always take more if needed.
