Frequently asked questions

What is CBD?

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. Cannabis encompasses both hemp and marijuana, but CBD is typically derived from hemp due to its high CBD and low THC levels. CBD is non-intoxicating, meaning it won’t make the user high.

CBD is used in health supplements due to its wellness properties to help improve and regulate the body’s ECS. There is a wide range of benefits CBD products have to offer, including an improved mental state, a decrease in minor discomfort, a boost in immune system health, and improved overall health. CBD comes in various products, forms and potencies to best accommodate the user’s needs. CBD is often made into CBD oil, CBD edibles, CBD topical products, and CBD vape products.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is the combination of CBD extract with a carrier oil. When CBD is first extracted from hemp, it’s a very thick and sticky substance. To make it easier to take and distribute, the CBD extract is mixed with other ingredients and oils. The most common carrier oils include coconut oil, hemp seed oil, grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, and avocado oil. When you purchase CBD oil it won’t contain exclusively CBD, it will also contain other ingredients for a more pleasant experience. Check the CBD milligram amount on the bottle to determine the potency of the CBD oil.

What is full-spectrum CBD oil?

Full-spectrum CBD oil is the least refined and processed CBD on the market with the most nutrients possible. After the CBD is first extracted from the hemp plant, it isn’t further refined to remove the nutrients from the plant, this includes terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. These other cannabinoids include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid commonly known for its intoxicating effects. Legally all hemp-derived CBD can’t contain any more than 0.3 percent THC. This small amount of THC won’t cause any intoxicating effects. Full-spectrum CBD oil can improve the effectiveness of the CBD since all the nutrients naturally found in the plant are left in the product.

How is CBD oil made?

After the extraction, refining, and testing process, the CBD is a thick substance that is added to carrier oils, flavors, or scents to make it easier to take. CBD is made into many different products, like CBD oils, edibles, beauty products, and more. Since the production of CBD isn’t the same for all manufacturers, make sure you purchase from a reliable source in order to ensure you are purchasing CBD that is produced properly and accurately tested.
