Interesting Facts about CBD
🌱WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of the hemp cannabis plant. It is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. CBD oil contains concentrated levels of the specific cannabinoid CBD, and a minimal or non-existent amount of THC. CBD indirectly activates the “cannabinoid receptors” throughout the body, which promotes the proper function of your endocannabinoid system without overstimulation and you won't feel sedated or altered in any way. As CBD is becoming more recognized in the health & wellness world, skin care, personal care and pet products, many scientific studies are being conducted to confirm there are multiple benefits related to using CBD.
🌱TELL US ABOUT BENEFITS OF CBD?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still in the process of conducting clinical trials on the health and therapeutic benefits of CBD, therefore we are not allowed to make health claims regarding our products. We can however tell you that we have many satisfied customers who use CBD to support their wellness regime.
🌱WHAT DOSAGE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Suggested doses vary based on individual weight, metabolism and desired reaction. While we cannot indicate an adequate dose for each individual, we suggest beginning with the lowest serving of a product and gradually increasing dose or milligrams until desired reaction is achieved. Always consult with a healthcare professional before adding CBD to your wellness regime.
🌱WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
The Endocannabinoid system is a biochemical communication system in the human body, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience. These endocannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system. CBD interacts and stimulates these receptors.
🌱WILL CBD MAKE ME HIGH?
CBD is non-psychoactive, which means you will not have any mind-altering effects and will not get you “high” like THC.
🌱WHAT ARE CANNABINOID RECEPTORS?
Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout our bodies and interact with our endocannabinoid system, which controls memory, mood and pain sensation and appetite.
🌱HOW DOES CBD AFFECT CANNABINOID RECEPTORS?
CBD impacts the cannabinoid receptors by activating the TRPV1 receptors which control important functions like inflammation, pain perception, and body temperature. Throughout your body, you have cannabinoid receptors that help regulate all of your internal systems and keep harmony throughout the body.
🌱IS CBD LEGAL?
CBD that is extracted from hemp and contains less than 0.3% THC is legal at the federal level thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018. Additionally, hemp is now regulated by the Department of Agriculture and is no longer listed as a Schedule 1 drug. Each state has its own law regarding the sales of CBD, be sure to check with your state laws before ordering or using CBD oil.
🌱DO CBD PRODUCTS CONTAIN THC?
Some do, some don’t, please see the difference between Isolate, Broad-Spectrum and Full-Spectrum CBD. Yet to be legal on federal level, CBD needs to be extracted from industrial hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC.
🌱ISOLATE, BROAD-SPECTRUM, FULL-SPECTRUM CBD?
Is important to choose the right product that is best for your unique needs.
- Isolate CBD – (THC Free) is a product where all other compounds and cannabinoids have been removed, thus isolating the CBD for a pure product.
- Broad Spectrum CBD – (THC Free) refers to CBD oil products that are THC-free but still contain multiple cannabinoids and terpenes. Broad Spectrum CBD offers the entourage effect of multiple cannaboinoids and is a good choice for users who are concerned about using products with THC.
- Full Spectrum CBD – Contains less than 0.3% THC . This CBD oil option contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant with nothing removed. THC content is less than 0.3% and is legal at the federal level.
🌱CAN CBD OIL CAUSE ME TO FAIL A DRUG TEST?
Full Spectrum CBD products will contain trace amounts of THC, and while the levels of THC are so low that they likely will not trigger a false positive on a drug test, you can not fully rule out the possibility of it happening. If your employer has a zero-tolerance policy on drug use, please be aware that some of the sensitive drug tests can result in a positive test for THC. If you are concerned about getting a failed drug test, we suggest you to talk with your HR department before buying and using CBD oil. We also recommend using CBD Isolate THC Free Products.
🌱HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE CBD TOPICALS?
Our CBD topical reliefs can be used as often or as little as you need. That is the nice thing about using this plant-based relieve.
🌱IS CBD REALLY HELPFUL FOR PAIN OR INFLAMMATION?

CBD was legalized in 2018 and official medical studies were not encouraged before 2018. With many ongoing studies in progress, we encourage you to do your own online research. As CBD is gaining popularity, every day new research material and testimonials are being released.
🌱ARE CBD AND MARIJUANA THE SAME PLANT?
No, CBD and Marijuana come from different plants. They do, however, come from the same species of cannabis plant. There are three recognized species of cannabis plants—Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. While CBD and Marijuana both come from the same species of the cannabis plant, they are derived from different species of Cannabis sativa. CBD is derived from hemp, while marijuana is derived from the marijuana species. Industrial hemp is from the plant species Cannabis sativa and has been used worldwide to produce a variety of industrial and consumer products.
🌱WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA?
You've probably heard the terms Cannabis, Marijuana, and Hemp all tossed around in relation to CBD. The plant Cannabis sativa has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but there's a much higher percentage in hemp, which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of THC compared to marijuana. Industrial hemp is grown to be durable, have very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible—this can make it easier to extract the high amounts of CBD and smaller amounts of THC. Hemp’s chemical profile means that you can’t get “high” from it, and it is used to create medicinal remedies, food and oil, as well as other products, including rope, bricks, natural polymers, fiber, clothes and many more. Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have many flowering buds with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC. Marijuana is used recreationally and medicinally only.
🌱IS CBD THE ONLY CANNABINOID IN THE HEMP PLANT?
No. CBD is one of many cannabinoids within the hemp plant, but it’s currently the most popular one being researched for potential wellness benefits.
🌱HOW IS CBD ADDED INTO BEAUTY PRODUCTS?

CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the FDA. CGMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. Adherence to the CGMP regulations assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of drug products by requiring that manufacturers of medications adequately control manufacturing operations. This includes establishing strong quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories. This formal system of controls at a pharmaceutical company, if adequately put into practice, helps to prevent instances of contamination, mix-ups, deviations, failures, and errors. This assures that drug products meet their quality standards.
🌱HOW CAN YOU TAKE CBD?

Some individuals find that some methods work better than others, and how you take CBD can depend on individual preferences. Some common methods include ingestion, oil tinctures, vaping, pastes, beauty products, and creams. Our most recommended ways to take CBD are:

Though some claim to have experienced success with giving their cats or dogs CBD oil with great results making a happier pet. If you would like to give your pet CBD oil, we recommend avoiding any oil with THC in it. The best for animals would be CBD ISOLATE 0% THC. Also keep the dosage low as animals are more sensitive to CBD than us.
🌱HOW MUCH CBD CAN I TAKE?
CBD always works best if it is slowly introduced to the body with small increases.
🌱WHAT IS THE RIGHT STRENGHT/MG FOR ME?

Those with a smaller body mass and low body fat may benefit more from taking lower strength CBD oil and making slow increases rather than taking the higher strength option. Everybody has also a different tolerance to CBD, so start slow and listen to your body.
