FAQ

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabis compound found in marijuana and hemp. It’s one of more than 100 cannabinoids (compounds unique to cannabis plants) and the second most abundant cannabinoid after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Studies have shown that CBD holds promising medicinal properties for arthritis, epilepsy, and other ailments.

No. CBD is not the same as THC, and it won’t intoxicate you. Some people say that CBD isn’t psychoactive. That’s not exactly true. CBD has a multifaceted effect on the human nervous system’s balance, but intoxication isn’t part of the body’s response.

Yes, CBD is natural. Cannabinoids are chemically organic and they can be found in our bodies. That’s right; our bodies have their own “endocannabinoids.” The endocannabinoid system plays an important role in our immune systems and stress responses. CBD may also play a role in modulating the intoxicating effects of THC. So yes, CBD is natural.

People consume CBD in many different ways. Inhalation, topical application, and oral consumption are popular. Traditionally, people smoked cannabis. Now, vaporizing the extracted cannabinoid oil is possible too. But the trouble with inhalation is dosing accuracy; it’s difficult to measure how much CBD is consumed – or not consumed.

CBG (Cannabigerol) is a natural compound of hemp and is legal when extracted from Hemp seeds and stems.

Terpenes are the naturally occurring aromatic compounds that give cannabis it’s aroma and taste (cannabinoids have no taste or flavor on their own). Terpenes, or “terps” for short, occur in other fruits and flowers, too, and they’re an important part of what makes cannabis work the way it does on the human body. Aromatherapists use terpenes to create states of calm, energization, or relief for specific ailments. When combined with cannabinoids, terpenes yield benefits that are better than either the cannabinoids or terpenes alone.

You may hear a lot of buzz about CBD oil. It’s the nearly-pure CBD we extract from the plant to make into supplements and nutraceuticals. Some people consume CBD oil directly, but it’s hard to accurately meter the dose. So, we convert CBD oil into an easy, accurate, oral form.

CBD is increasingly legal, and it’s very likely that it’s legal where you live. In 2018, the United States legalized non-THC hemp for a variety of purposes – and effectively legalized CBD (if it’s produced from hemp). For more information on CBD legality, check out this blog post about CBD legality. Always consult with your local statutes before purchasing CBD.

Both marijuana and hemp are in the cannabis genus. They’re closely related cousins, but marijuana contains a lot of THC and hemp contains very little. Hemp, however, is more likely to contain significant amounts of CBD. That’s why most CBD is extracted from hemp.

There’s a wellspring of CBD research that shows the plant’s promising medicinal properties. Project CBD is a great source for learning about CBD and they’ve compiled much of the current research into a single page of easy links.
