What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the most prominent cannabinoids in hemp and marijuana cannabis species. It is a potentially therapeutic cannabinoid that does not have any psychoactive effects, meaning it will not get you high. CBD is used by many to potentially support anxiety, nervousness, inflammation, and more. Many users will mix CBD with their other cannabinoids to alter the effects of those products (e.g. taking 100mg CBD with 10mg of HHC).

Is CBD Legal?

Hemp-derived CBD is legal at the federal level and in many U.S. states. This is because of the 2018 Farm Bill, which made many hemp products and cannabinoids (like CBD) legal at the federal level.

Laws regarding CBD and other hemp cannabinoids vary from state to state, so be sure to check your local laws before purchasing any hemp products.

Is CBD the same as THC?

It’s a widespread misperception that CBD and THC are the same compounds, especially among beginners. They are very different cannabinoids. While they share some striking similarities, such as their common source and strikingly similar chemical structures, they may have very different effects on the body.

The key distinction between CBD and THC is that CBD lacks the well-known psychoactive properties of THC. Instead, CBD can encourage balance across a number of your body’s functions so that you consistently feel and perform at your best.

When made from hemp, CBD is accepted in the majority of states and is legal on the federal level. As long as your CBD products comply with all applicable federal and local legal standards, you should be able to purchase CBD in your state. Remember to check your local laws before purchase!

Types of CBD

Full Spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum is the form of CBD extract that is commonly regarded as the most beneficial type of CBD. This is due to the fact that it contains the terpenes, vitamins, flavonoids, and other naturally occurring cannabinoids as well as CBD found in hemp plants. In full-spectrum CBD, there is some THC present. These THC concentrations are within the legally permitted range of 0.3%. It is believed that even this small quantity can boost the advantages of other cannabinoids, such as CBD.

Broad Spectrum CBD

With the exception of THC, Broad Spectrum CBD extract is comparable to Full Spectrum CBD. Broad Spectrum CBD goes through additional processing to remove traces of THC but retains the remaining components found in the hemp plant, such as other cannabinoids, oils, flavonoids, and terpenes.

Broad spectrum CBD may provide the advantages of multiple cannabinoids without the presence of THC.

CBD Isolate

Isolate is CBD in its purest form. It has no discernible THC or other naturally occurring substances. Pure CBD only; nothing else.

Due to the removal of all other chemicals, CBD isolate is unable to produce the potential “entourage effect,” unlike full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD extracts. It can be, however, effective in supplying your body’s systems with a high concentration of CBD to experience its potential benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the potential benefits of CBD?

CBD may have the potential to aid with inflammation, as well as act as an adaptogen. There are cannabinoid receptors all over your body that bind to CBD and other cannabinoids. When CBD binds to these receptors, it may have a balancing effect on your body that may promote your overall well-being.

Are there negative side effects of CBD?

CBD is often well-tolerated as it has no psychoactive properties. Some potential side effects can include dry mouth, reduced appetite, drowsiness, and fatigue.

Does CBD get you high?

CBD isolate is non-psychoactive and cannot get you high. Some broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD products do contain other cannabinoids, which can have some psychoactive effects.

Do you third-party test your products?

All of our products undergo 3rd-party testing from DEA-registered labs. This ensures you get the highest quality products free from any unwanted ingredients.

Will this show up on a drug test?

CBD isolate and broad-spectrum products will not show up on a drug test. Full-spectrum CBD products contain up to .3% THC and may appear on a drug test.
