What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive , which means it does not cause one to “get high” and there’s a growing body of evidence that it has a number of health benefits.
What is Hemp?
Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and can be refined into numerous commercial applications. Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa, the hempplant is grown specifically for its higher CBD concentration. Hemp has muchlower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates the psychoactive effects.
What is THC?
Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is the most prominent psychoactive component found in cannabis. Usually associated with marijuana, it is responsible for the "high" that users feel when consuming cannabis. Because of its molecular structure, THC binds directly with CB1 receptors. When this bond is formed, the reaction creates signals that are sent to the brain, which results in the psychoactive effects of “getting high.”
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is the biological system which maintains homeostasis and balance in the human body. Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body on the surface of cells in the brain, organs, tissues, and glands. Cannabinoids come from two distinct places: the body, which produces naturally occurring endocannabinoids, and the cannabis plant.
Two cannabinoid receptors have been discovered by researchers: CB1 and CB2. CB1 is found in the central and peripheral nervous system, and the brain. CB2 receptors are predominantly found in the immune system and the gastrointestinal system where they regulate inflammatory responses in the bowels. CB2 receptors are also found in the brain, although not as densely as CB1 receptors. These receptors, a large part of the endocannabinoid system, play roles in regulating cardiovascular activity, appetite, mood, memory, and pain in the body.
How do I use CBD?
There are four primary ways to use CBD:
- Sublingual(hold under the tongue for 60 seconds)
We carry products to meet all four of these delivery mechanisms!
What is the difference between the various types of CBD oil?
Cannabidiol oil comes in several types: Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil, and Isolate. The contents of the refined extract are what determines if the CBD extract is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.
CBD Isolate refers to an oil where only 1 compound is extracted, and it is isolated from other components. In the case of CBD isolate that means only cannabidiol is extracted and all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and oils are separated out. Isolate was the most often used form of CBD until a few years ago when scientists discovered that other cannabinoids and compounds may add additional benefits to CBD oil.
Full Spectrum is currently the most common type of CBD oil. Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found in the hemp plant, including multiple cannabinoids,terpenes, and natural oils. Full Spectrum is used commonly in CBD products because it contains various cannabinoids and compounds which work together to provide an enhanced effect, often referred to as the “entourage effect.” While Full Spectrum does contain other cannabinoids, the THC level must be below 0.3%.
Broad Spectrum is like full spectrum because it contains multiple cannabinoids in addition to CBD, but it does NOT contain any THC. Because Broad spectrum has a full cannabinoid profile like full spectrum, it can also provide the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect.”
What is MCT oil?
MCT or medium-chain triglyceride oil is usually made from coconut or palm kernel oil. MCT contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Medium-chain triglycerides are easier for the body to digest due to the shorter length of the chain (the chain refers to the number of carbon atoms in the chemical structure). The way the body breaks-down and absorbs these fats may provide health benefits related to metabolic rate, fat oxidation, insulin sensitivity, and others.
Will CBD get me high?
No, CBD oil contains little to no THC, the active compound in Cannabis plant that has psychoactive propertieswhich is what gives the “high” feeling. By law, CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC and some products have no THC at all. Furthermore, CBD is specifically sourced from hemp plants that have high concentrations of active cannabinoids, but low amounts of THC. Quality hemp extracts provide all the benefits of CBD, but without the “high” attributed to THC.
Is CBD natural?
Yes, cannabidiol is naturally produced by the cannabis / hemp plant. Also, cannabinoids are naturally produced within the human body in order to work with the endocannabinoid system. The best process used to naturally extract the cannabidiol oil is call “super-critical CO2 extraction”. The Co2 extraction process ensures extraction of a pure, highly concentrated cannabidiol oil from the plant without using chemicals or solvents. Another benefit of CO2 extraction is that it kills any microbial bacteria, insect mites, mold, or mildew on the cannabis plant providing a cleaner, healthier CBD oil.
Therefore, CO2 extraction guarantees that your concentrates will not only be cleaner, but significantly healthier for your consumption. CO2 extracted CBD oil is also much better tasting and contains more robust cannabinoid and terpene profiles.
Can I use CBD in food preparation?
Yes, CBD oils are easy and effective when added to food. Many people use CBD oil in their salad dressings, smoothies, sauces, and garnishes. Many types of CBD often benefit from being warmed as it increases the effectiveness of cannabinoids. However, using CBD oilwhen cooking over high heat may affect potency and the amount of cannabinoids and terpenes in the oil. We recommend adding CBD as a garnish after you have finished the cooking process.
Will your products show up on a drug test?
Most drug tests are screening for the psychoactive component, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) not the presence of the cannabis plant derivatives. By federal law all hemp derived products must contain less than .3% THC. Our CBD products contain little or no THC and are not likely to show up on a drug test.
