What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years.
What is CBD Used for?
Many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects— medicine more in sync with natural processes. By tapping into how we function biologically on a deep level, CBD is said to provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression, and many other conditions.
Will CBD make me feel “high”?
CBD is considered to be a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, so it will not get you high how marijuana does. THC, the compound that’s responsible for causing the marijuana “high,” is not present in CBD. Both CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are part of the cannabis plant, but when the product is made, THC is separated, and the CBD has a very small percentage (0.3%) or even none at all.
Is CBD Legal?
CBD, when hemp-derived, is legal in the United States, given the derived products are low in THC (below 0.3%). CBD oil is classified as a harmless supplement that can be bought over-the-counter, versus a plant with high THC which can only be bought with a license in most states.
How does CBD work?
Humans have a built-in cannabinoid receptor system called the endocannabinoid system. The system works to create homeostasis—in other words, establishing a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment. It operates throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. This system is a highly attuned physiological system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.
How do I use CBD?
Depending on your requirement, you can use our tinctures (which go under the tongue), soft gels or gummies if you cannot tolerate the taste. For skin issues we have salves, which can be applied directly. We all have different bodies and what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another. We therefore recommend everyone start slow and pay attention to their body to see what dosage works best with their body.
How is CBD different from Medical Marijuana?
Marijuana and hemp CBD both come from the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant has more than 65 chemicals called cannabinoids, but the two main ones are CBD and THC. The THC content is what differentiates CBD from marijuana. Hemp has 0.3% or less and marijuana is between 10%-15%.
