CBD Info & FAQ's
What is CBD?
Why the Hemp Plant vs the Cannabis Plant
The hemp plant is richer in CBD percentages and can test upwards of 15% CBD, while maintaining a THC level of less than .3%. The hemp plant is considered hemp when it tests and contains less than .3% THC. The hemp plant is legal on the federal level. Hemp is also rich in amino acids and omega fatty acids. The fibers of hemp can also be used in many commercial and industrial products like paper, building materials, compost and clothes. The whole hemp plant is used throughout the process. The cannabis plant is rich in THC, and can test in upwards of 30% THC, while containing much less CBD than its hemp counterpart, usually in the 1-5% range and is federally illegal to grow and possess.
What is CBD Isolate?
Isolate CBD is the purest form of CBD available, testing around 99.99% CBD and can be found in both crystalline and powdered crystal form. Isolate contains only one cannabinoid, CBD. Isolate is made through a 3-step extraction process in order to get the CBD isolated to its purest form.
What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD is an oil rich in CBD but also contains low levels of other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC and THC. It contains all the beneficial compounds from the hemp plant, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids and proteins. Full Spectrum CBD may have a more synergistic effect than pure CBD isolate, which is often referred to as the ‘entourage effect’. Full Spectrum Oil usually tests at around 75%-90% CBD and must test at less than .3% THC. Full Spectrum Oil is extracted by a 2-step process.
Wait, what the heck is a Cannabinoid?
A Cannabinoid is a diverse classification of the many active chemical compounds found in the Hemp and Cannabis Plants. These compounds can be nonphysocactive (CBD) and Psychoactive (THC). The Hemp and Cannabis Plants can contain over 100 different cannabinoid compounds. These “cannabinoids” are more popularly known as CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and THC, just to name a few.

What does CBD do to you?
CBD can support both the body and mind in a variety of ways. Most common benefits include relieving exercise-induced body aches, pains, muscle soreness and inflammation, supporting a calming sense of relaxation, focus and balance, promoting healthy sleep cycles, and helping to manage work and life-induce stress.
Does CBD get you high?
The short answer is no; CBD won’t get you high. THC is the psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant that creates the feeling of being “high.” As discussed above, all of our full spectrum products contain less than .3% THC and our isolate products are 99.99% pure CBD. While both CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system, they are completely different chemical compounds. THC acts on CB1 receptors in the brain to produce an intoxicating effect, while CBD doesn’t directly interact with any receptors that cause that sensation.
Are there any good CBD podcasts?
What is the entourage effect?
Some research has found that when CBD and THC are used together, they produce what's known as the entourage effect. This means that when used together, they may be more effective than either cannabinoid used alone.
