CBD 101

What is CBD?+-

CBD, also known as cannabidiol (ca-nuh-bi-DYE-ol), is a naturally occurring cannabinoid from the cannabis sativa plant. There are over one-hundred different cannabinoids found in the plant. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabinol (CBN), and cannabigerol (CBG) are some other well-known and researched cannabinoids.

How does CBD work?+-

When CBD is applied topically, it absorbs through the skin’s pores and reacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The ECS is made up of endocannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes that work together to achieve homeostasis in the body. Homeostasis is when the body reaches an optimal state of health with a balanced internal environment. The ECS regulates internal functions like mood, communication between cells, immune response, and more. When there is an imbalance arising from external factors, the endocannabinoid system uses cannabinoids to restore and remedy the imbalance.

What’s the difference between full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate?+-

Full-spectrum CBD contains all the best parts of the cannabis sativa plant. This includes cannabinoids, terpenes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids. These compounds work together and create a synergistic effect. Broad-spectrum CBD is a processed form of CBD that has had all THC removed. This is done using additional processing and chemicals. CBD Isolate is the most processed form of CBD. All nutrients, terpenes, and other cannabinoids have been stripped away leaving nothing but pure CBD. This is the cheapest and least effective form of CBD.

What’s the difference between cannabis and hemp?+-

Hemp and cannabis are similar because they are from the same plant species, Cannabis Sativa. Hemp is specifically grown to have high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. To be considered hemp, THC levels must not reach above 0.3%. If THC exceeds 0.3%, the plant becomes cannabis.

What’s the difference between CBD and hemp seed oil?+-

Some companies are deceiving consumers by marketing hemp seed oil as CBD oil. They are very different. Hemp seed oil is specifically derived from the seeds of the hemp plant and contains no other cannabinoids. CBD is a cannabinoid derived from the whole plant.

How much CBD should I use and how often?+-

We recommend applying a liberal amount to the targeted area. You should wait at least 30 minutes for the skin to fully absorb the topical. For optimal absorption, apply to clean skin. Re-apply as needed.
