Frequently asked questions
A naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant that causes psychoactive and/or physical effects throughout the body such as THC or CBD. Cannabis receptors, naturally occurring in our bodies (see "What is the endocannabinoid system?"), mediate how these are processed.
There is a naturally occurring network within the human body called the endocannabinoid system and it is full of cannabinoid receptors that connect directly to your brain. While cannabinoids, such as CBD, are found within the cannabis plant, a similar compound called “endocannabinoids” are naturally produced by our bodies whether or not we partake in the consumption of cannabis. These are what keep our internal functions running smoothly and our body produces them as needed.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis known for its healing properties, often used as a popular natural remedy for immunity-related conditions.
Known as the “mother of all cannabinoids” as this is where all cannabinoids are derived from. Non-psychoactive and known for its healing properties similar to CBD, CBG binds different receptors in the body and may be more helpful in treating conditions connected to the nervous system.
When THC found in the cannabis plant ages, it breaks down and forms this less potent cannabinoid. Unlike CBD, which is non-psychoactive, CBN in larger doses can produce mild psychoactive reactions and is known for its sedative properties.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many different plants. In cannabis, they’re found within trichomes, which are the tiny resinous bulbs that make the cannabis plant feel sticky to the touch. They are responsible for the way each plant, including hemp, tastes and smells. However, this is not all that they’re capable of. Terpenes can interact with your endocannabinoid system similarly to how CBD does and when paired with different cannabinoids can alter the overall user experience. (See entourage effect)
MCT oil is a supplement made from the fatty acids found in palm and coconut oil. MCT is short for medium-chain triglyceride, which, simply put, is a type of fat. However, this specific type of fat carries many health benefits because of how your body digests it. MCTs go straight to your liver, which turns them into immediate energy for your body or ketones for your brain. Either way, these fats break down much faster than glucose or long-chain fats, giving you more energy and boosting weight loss.
CBD comes in three different forms, each of which contains various parts of the plant: CBD isolate, broad-spectrum, and full-spectrum CBD. Full-spectrum CBD contains every compound naturally found in the hemp plant, including CBD, cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and a little bit of THC (less than 0.3%). Research has shown that these elements give the most health benefits when taken together as a full spectrum. Broad-spectrum CBD contains every compound in the plant except for the THC. Finally, CBD isolate has nothing but the pure CBD compound.
Delta 9 THC is a potentially psychoactive compound found in cannabis known for it's therapeutic and medicinal effects. When paired with CBD, it works to amplify the benefits of both cannabinoids, ultimately providing maximum support for your endocannabinoid system.
Taking CBD can give you several important health benefits, from dealing with discomfort, keeping your inflammation levels normal and healthy, to supporting your body’s natural systems. It’s also been linked to helping with sleep and mental well being without being intoxicating.
While relief from CBD is never guaranteed, many doctors and researchers are turning to it as a potential wellness option.
You want a CBD product that maximizes health benefits through quality ingredients. Look for the following:
· Hemp that is ethically grown and sourced
· Full-Spectrum oils
· Non-toxic, all-natural ingredients
· Third-party testing for clarity and potency
Every batch of our CBD is outsourced to a third-party lab, which tests for contaminants like heavy metals, microbial life, mycotoxins, and pesticides. We only use the batch if the lab guarantees that it’s passed each test.
Any of our products containing delta 9 THC may induce psychoactive effects. Everyone's systems react to cannabinoids and terpenes differently and it is best to use a dose that feels right for you.
We do not have any definitive data about this. Please consult with your physician and employer.
