Frequently Asked Questions


The Rundown:

There are over 85 known cannabinoids in hemp derived CBD, each having its own set of effects. The two most commonly known are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC and CBD are not the same. CBD's remarkable effects are particularly exciting because they come without the psychoactive effects, or “feeling high” effects THC produces. The most notable difference between hemp and marijuana is the percentage of THC.

Cannabinoids can be found in our environments and in the foods we consume. For example, chocolate and black pepper are rich in cannabinoids. These foods don’t get you “high”, but they do offer pain relieving and anti-anxiety effects.  A new wave of scientific research uncovers the importance of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and the use of CBD to activate this system.

The ECS is a biological system composed on endocannabinoids; these cannabinoid receptors are located all throughout the brain and body: found on the skin, and in our organs, connective tissues, muscles and brain. CBD, the most researched cannabinoid, is compatible with the body’s ECS, and naturally works with the ECS to deliver CBD’s healing qualities throughout the body - positively affecting mood, inflammation, and immunity. We believe by targeting and activating the ECS we can help many people restore their internal balance.

What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound found in hemp/cannabis plants. Prohibition caused a lack of education and understanding surrounding the cannabis plant, leading to countless rumors on what makes hemp different from cannabis.

Cannabis Sativa (or marijuana) is a term used to describe a plant that is bred for its high amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and known for its psychoactive properties, or feeling “high”.

However, hemp is a term used to describe a Cannabis Sativa plant containing only trace amounts of THC (<0.3%) but still rich in cannabinoids, including CBD.

There are over 85 known cannabinoids in hemp-derived CBD, each having its own effect. The two most commonly known and studied are THC and CBD. THC and CBD are not the same. CBD's remarkable effects are particularly exciting because they come without the psychoactive, or “feeling high”, effects of THC.

CBD is compatible with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), and naturally works with the ECS to deliver CBD’s healing qualities throughout the body.
