CBD is the abbreviated form of cannabidiol, one of the two main cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant (next to THC, the “intoxicating” cannabinoid found in cannabis). CBD is known for its many health benefits, medicinal properties, and positive impact on general wellness. CBD interacts with our bodies natural endocannabinoid system which research suggests regulates a variety of critical physiological and cognitive processes including reproductive, immune, appetite, pain, mood, and memory functions. CBD is both non-toxic and non-narcotic, and although it does not get you high, it stimulates vigorous activity when introduced to your endocannabinoid system.

Maturing hemp plants produce buds or flowers in their reproductive cycle. These flowers are the primary producer of cannabinoids in the plant. Hemp strains have been meticulously cultivated and engineered to produce flowers with desirable qualities to the end user. While traditionally strains of the cannabis plant were valued based on their high THC content, strains featuring low THC content and high CBD content are increasingly desirable, especially to consumers who dislike the high associated with consumption.

CBD Isolate is a processed CBD powder derived from the hemp (cannabis) plant that is usually white in color and 99% pure CBD. CBD Isolate is produced through rigorous processing of the non-essential plant matter including flavonoids and terpenes, resulting in a product that is free of any associated/unwanted compounds or chemicals.

Full Spectrum CBD Distillate is a processed oil extracted from the cannabis plant containing high (%80) amounts of CBD and trace amounts of other naturally occurring cannabinoids. This category of product takes is so named because of the total “full” composition of cannabinoids from the cannabis plant including exceptionally low levels of THC. Despite its low THC content, Full Spectrum CBD Distillate is usually prohibited in areas where marijuana use remains illegal.

Comparable in makeup to Full Spectrum CBD Distillate, Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate features a similar composition and strength but undergoes further distillation to remove any traces of THC. This distillate contains all the same cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant excepting THC, earning it the “broad” categorization rather than “full”.

CBD Crude is a lower purity oil obtained through Carbon Dioxide or Ethanol based extraction. This method produces a large yield with relatively low levels of manpower at the cost of overall purity. The product is still viable and in demand for many industry-specific applications despite this lower purity.

Topical CBD products are those products such as lotions, salves, ointments, creams, or other skin-applied products which contain CBD and are applied directly to the body. Topical CBD products are widely popular and feature a broad variety of uses and strengths.

NO. unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive properties that would induce a “high” of any type on the consumer.

NO, CBD will not render a positive result on a standard drug test; however, care should be exercised that CBD products are pure and do not contain trace elements of THC if the consumer has concerns about intoxicating effects.

The only factually accurate measure of CBD product strength and composition is through accredited lab testing. You should not consume products from questionable retailers or distributors that do not have industry standard procedures for measuring and communicating these attributes.

Adults who are unaccustomed to CBD usage may typically begin with a dosage of 60mg CBD per day and may increase or decrease dosage in increments of 20mg per day depending on the effects observed by the consumer.

CBD and other hemp products are widely recognized as being both body-safe and free of harmful side effects. Concerns regarding the impact of CBD use on your health should be discussed with and addressed by your doctor prior to use.
