Questions About Hemp & CBD

What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?
CBD is one of 80+ compounds able to be extracted from the hemp plant. Cannabidiol affects the body by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System, which is a network of receptors present within each of us. CBD targets these receptors and promotes homeostasis within our internal processes, such as the digestive and nervous systems.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?
Both CBD and THC are two of the cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant. The difference between the two is that, unlike THC, CBD does not contain any psychoactive properties. In other words, it will NOT get you “high.”

What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a group of beneficial compounds present within the hemp plant. In addition to CBD, other notable, non-psychoactive cannabinoids include CBC, CBG, & CBN — which have their own specific properties.

What are terpenes?
Terpenes are a large class of organic compounds present within the hemp plant. Their distinct aromas are produced by the plants to ward off herbivores, while providing us with many beneficial properties that are enhanced due to the “entourage effect.”

What is the entourage effect?
The term entourage effect is when CBD, along with the other components of the hemp plant (additional cannabinoids, terpenes, etc), act in concert to produce maximum benefits for the user. This idea stems from the fact that adding several cannabinoids and terpenes together will be more therapeutic than using one single cannabinoid.

Is CBD safe for pets?
According to the ASPCA, there is a growing amount of research pointing to the possibilities of CBD being helpful for pets, however you should always consult a veterinarian before making any medical decisions.

What is the difference between CBD Isolate, Broad Spectrum CBD and Full Spectrum CBD?
CBD Isolate is the purest form of the compound, and has the highest percentage of cannabidiol per serving. Broad Spectrum CBD refers to an extraction that contains multiple cannabinoids in addition to CBD, without a trace of THC. Full Spectrum CBD includes the entirety of the hemp plant, from terpenes, to all available cannabinoids & essential oils, and also contains small amounts of THC below the legal requirement of .3%.
