Where does CBD Come from?
CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 80+ chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. We recommend storing our products in a cool, dry location, out of open sunlight. The typical medicine cabinet or pantry should be fine.

Because our oils are extracted from hemp, you might hear this type of product referred to in a few ways: CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or hemp extracts. CBD oil is unique from typical hempseed oil sold cheaply in the grocery store because it utilizes all parts of the hemp plant, instead of only the seeds. This method of extraction produces a more nutritionally robust oil.

CBD FAQ

How Does CBD Work?
More research is needed to figure out the total effects this compound has on our bodies. Studies have shown the existence of a system of cell receptors in your body, called the endocannabinoid system (ECs), which spreads throughout the connective tissues and even into your organs. The cannabis family of plants contains compounds which interact specifically with this system and provide nutritional and therapeutic value that is unavailable to most other plants.

What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and there are more than 85 identified cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant and is the ONLY psychoactive cannabinoid. Of the 85+ non-psychoactive cannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known.

CBD FAQ

What is the difference between CBD and THC?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main ingredients in the marijuana plant. Both CBD and THC belong to a unique class of compounds known as cannabinoids.

1) The High

THC is probably best known for being the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. CBD, however, is non-psychoactive. In other words, CBD can’t get you high.

2) Anxiolytic

THC is known to cause some people to feel anxious or paranoid. CBD is believed to have the opposite effect.

3) Antipsychotic

In addition to being non-psychoactive, CBD seems to have antipsychotic properties.

4) Legal Status

While most countries have strict laws surrounding marijuana and THC, the legal status of CBD is less clear. The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and it’s derivative CBD) to be a nutritional item (not a medication), since they are derived from industrial hemp plants. If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state.

CBD FAQ

What are terpenes?
The cannabis plant consists of a wide variety of chemicals and compounds. About 140 of these belong to a large class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons known as terpenes (pronounced tur-peens).

Terpenes, unlike cannabinoids, are responsible for the aroma of cannabis. The FDA and other agencies have generally recognized terpenes as “safe.” Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters; they are prone to combine with or dissolve in lipids or fats; they act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”). However, more specific research is needed for improved accuracy in describing and predicting how terpenes in cannabis can be used medicinally to help treat specific ailments/health conditions.

What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.

There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1, and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “Ananda” which translates to “bliss”).

For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.
