What Is CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is the most abundant of the more than 100 known naturally occurring cannabinoids found in hemp plants. CBD has been shown to interact with the human body through the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating an array of physiological functions. CBD is a non-psychoactive, organic compound found in cannabis plants with amazing benefits that can be enjoyed without the side effects and highs that come from the psychoactive substances extracted from cannabis plants such as THC

What are the benefits of using CBD?

Mounting evidence shows CBD oil can promote recovery, and aids in relaxation post exercise. There are currently several ongoing studies looking to scientifically demonstrate anti-inflamation and pain mitigation effects of all cannabidiol compounds.

What is the difference between hemp and cannabis?

The key difference between hemp and marijuana is the amount of THC (Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and whether the cannabinoid will cause a euphoric effect. Cannabis has the well-known chemical compound, THC, that is responsible for producing a high. Hemp, on the other hand, produces no euphoric effects as it has less than 0.03% THC on a dry weight basis to be considered legal.

Does CBD interact with other food supplements or medications?

As always, you should consult with your doctor prior to taking any new supplements or medications to ensure there are no conflicts in their effects on your system.

Are CBD and THC the same thing?

We’d like to clear something up. As the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant, it can be easy to confuse CBD and THC. But other than both being called cannabinoids, they are not the same thing. High levels of THC are commonly found in the popular plant but less so in the case of CBD. It makes sense, then, that THC can send you soaring on a high while CBD is reassuringly non-psychoactive. Disappointing to recreational users, perhaps, but brilliant news for the thousands of people looking to benefit from its proposed curative properties without enduring unwanted side effects.

Will I get ‘high’?

Good question. Unlike THC, the dominant marijuana compound that does cause a high, CBD does not contain the same psychoactive properties. For you, that means the safe and secure use of CBD, able to harness its benefits while being in complete control.
