What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for the cannabinoid CannaBiDiol, which is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that can be used as a daily supplement to contribute to overall health and wellness. Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds and are found within the hemp plant.
What is CBD used for?
CBD is used as a daily supplement as well as a natural aid for many ailments. Current CBD users subscribe to CBD to alleviate insomnia, anxiety, inflammation — such as in the hands or neck, and certain types of seizures. It is used to encourage restfulness, and may serve as a neuroprotectant.
Will CBD get me high?
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and should not produce a “high” feeling when ingested. While any ingested substance can affect people differently, being non-psychoactive, CBD should not affect your mental state and should promote a clear, calm mind for the user.
How is it administered?
CBD can be taken in many forms – pill-capsules, tinctures, gummies, vaporizers, and water-miscible powders being some of the more popular options for consuming CBD. Now with the advent of higher-quality hemp flower, it’s also becoming popular to ingest CBD in the form of low-THC, high-CBD flower cigarettes.
What is the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana?
Industrial hemp and marijuana both belong to the plant genus Cannabis. Although they’re closely related genetically, like in other species, even one genetic difference can drastically change the characteristics of a plant. Hemp has been bred for more industrial uses, typically focusing on fiber and grain production, while marijuana cultivation and breeding has focused on flower and THC production. Hemp is defined as having at or below 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. In recent years the hemp industry has begun to also focus on flower and legal cannabinoid production such as Cannabidiol, or CBD.
How is CBD extracted?
CBD is typically extracted by either CO2, hydrocarbons, or ethanol. Our CBD oil is extracted using the CO2 method through a proprietary engineering process. Through this process, CO2 is pressurized and brought to a low temperature. This captures CO2 in a liquid state to be used as a safe and natural solvent, allowing the efficient extraction of essential oils—like CBD and terpenes—from plant material, while eliminating THC and chlorophyll.
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD available, reaching levels of purity that meet or exceed 99% pure CBD. Several methods are used to extract CBD from hemp and reduce it to a powder, crystalline-like form.
What is Full Spectrum Extract?
Full Spectrum Extract is the fully extracted spectrum of the hemp plant, including all of the cannabinoids and terpenes. Cannabinoid and terpene profiles vary with each variety, so the makeup of a full spectrum extract varies as well. Research is ongoing as to how different cannabinoids and terpenes interact with the body.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are the essence of smell. When you smell various aromas wafting from beautiful hemp plants what you’re really smelling are the hundreds of terpenes found within the plant that give many plants their characteristic smell. Terpenes serve to protect plants, and in some cases will make them more desirable to humans, leading to increased production of the plant.
What quality control tests are done on your product?
We focus on quality from seed to shelf and track our hemp crop through the entire process. We use third-party testing for all our batches and look at a wide range of testing parameters. To ensure quality, we test for cannabinoids, terpenes, residual solvents, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and pesticides, going above and beyond to ensure our product is of the highest quality and providing any COAs necessary to ensure that.
