Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic compound derived from the leaves, stalks, as well as flowers of the industrial hemp and/or cannabis plant. It’s the most widely accepted “non-psychoactive” cannabinoid that can be found in cannabis. CBD oil should not be misconstrued with marijuana even though they both can come from the cannabis plant; the extraction process of the CBD oil contained in our products is from industrial hemp.
CBD oil and other hemp-extracted products are absolutely 100% legal, and can be used and sold throughout the United States. The process of growing, processing, and selling hemp extracts – including, but not limited to cannabinoids from industrial hemp is possible through federal regulation within Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, which the U.S. Congress has passed and signed into law.
Since CBD is non-psychoactive, and it is a component from industrial hemp, it doesn’t contain any elements of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the familiar active ingredient in cannabis; therefore, there is no “high” effect as a result of taking CBD.
CBD affects your body by triggering receptors of the endocannabinoid system in your brain and central nervous system. These specific receptors regulate various parts and systems of the body. The effects can vary based on your purpose for using CBD and method of ingestion etc.
CBD effects usually take about 30 minutes to take effect depending on the dosage and method of ingestion. However, since there are no psychoactive ingredients with CBD oil, there is no “high” effect, but a significant decrease in symptoms – reduced pain, calming sense, etc. These effects should be noticeable. Furthermore, results vary on your dosage and purpose for using CBD.
The endocannabinoid system (also known as ECS) is a very complex arrangement of cannabinoid receptors in the human brain and central nervous system. These receptors regulate different functions of the human body and are responsive to cannabinoids derived from hemp plants. The endocannabinoid system can affect many different body systems including: sleep, appetite, mood, pain, and memory.
Any side effects that you may experience of CBD are quite insignificant at best. These side effect are nowhere near as relevant as the side effects from many pharmaceutical medicines that are approved by the FDA. The most common side effect that CBD users have reported is minor abdominal discomfort or a mild feeling of sedation. Again, there’s no “high” effect or psychoactive compounds in CBD, so don’t worry about inhibiting your ability to perform day-to-day tasks.
CBD dosages can vary from person to person, or the purpose of their use of CBD. Some cases may only need a small amount of CBD while others may require more. It depends on your purpose for using CBD oil. There have been no reports of any lethal or deadly doses of CBD.
The “entourage effect” describes using all of the beneficial compounds that can be found in hemp rather than just a single-compound extracts; two Israeli scientists first used the term back in the late 1990s.
Cannabinoids are what we refer to as molecular compounds naturally made or derived from hemp plants; however, they are also found in other plants and can be produced naturally by our bodies. Scientists classify cannabinoids as fatty compounds that play vital roles within our immune and central nervous system.
Cannabis Sativa is essentially the plant family where both the Hemp and marijuana plant come from. However, the main difference between the two plants is their levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the illegal, psychotropic cannabinoid. In The Agricultural Act of 2014, the Obama Administration describes legal hemp plants as containing less than 0.3% THC which also makes cannabinoids extracted from hemp, such as Cannabidiol (CBD), legal as well, provided that they are <.03% THC.
Broad Spectrum extraction is a term that describes the process that allows preservation of valuable terpenoids, essential oils, amino acids, and other beneficial cannabinoids through the process.
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract comes from 100% hemp-cultivated and processed within the USA. The full spectrum of medicinal cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant originally are kept intact in the final blend. The individual cannabinoids are not isolated in the tinctures we carry. The hemp plant’s various cannabinoids and terpenes work synergistically with one another.
There is a small percentage and chance that consuming CBD could lead to a positive drug test, as it possibly could with any product made from hemp. If this is a significant concern of yours, we recommend speaking with your employer or physician before using CBD.
Yes, there is a “shelf life” mainly for our CBD vape oil products which means there’s a timeline it should be consumed. With proper storage, we can guarantee 3 to 4 months for most vape oils and up to 2 years for other CBD products.
Since everyone’s body and health condition is different, it’s difficult to create a predetermined dosage that’s right for everyone. For severe symptoms, a higher dose of CBD may be required and mild symptoms won’t need as much. We recommend having a consultation with your physician or health professional to determine the amount of CBD right for you.
