What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in hemp and marijuana plants. It works with your body to maintain homeostasis and has anti-inflammatory effects. This means that CBD can help improve a number of conditions, from pain management to better sleep.
How does it work?
Your body contains something known as the endocannabinoid system. This helps your body to maintain homeostasis, including temperature, hormone levels, blood sugar levels, memory, pain management, and a whole host of other things. Cannabinoids work with your body’s endocannabinoid system to maintain this homeostasis.
Does CBD make you high? Is it legal?
No, CBD does not make you high. THC is the compound found in marijuana that has psychoactive properties. This is also what makes marijuana illegal.
Our CBD products are hemp derived, meaning there is little to no THC in them.
As far as legality goes, CBD must contain less than 0.3% of THC to be considered legal in the United States. Since all of our products are derived from hemp, they contain less than 0.3% THC, which makes them completely legal in all fifty states!
What is the difference between CBD Isolate, Broad Spectrum CBD, and Full Spectrum CBD?
- CBD Isolate: This product contains only CBD, no other forms of cannabinoids, flavonoids, THC, or terpenes.
You will still receive the benefits of CBD but there is very little taste or smell.
- Broad-Spectrum CBD: The only compound extracted from the CBD is THC. All other compounds, including essential oils, terpenes, and flavonoids are retained. This boosts the beneficial health benefits of the CBD product.
- Full Spectrum CBD: A small amount of THC is retained in the CBD product. The amount of THC is still within legal parameters, meaning it is less than 0.3%.
Will CBD show up on a drug test?
Drug tests are only triggered when enough THC is present. Since CBD hemp products have little to
no THC, they usually will not show up on drug tests. However, some full spectrum CBD products do contain very small trace amounts of THC that may trigger a drug test. Usually, this only occurs when you have used the product over a long period of time. Any other CBD isolate or broad-spectrum CBD product will not trigger a drug test, since it contains no THC.
