Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second major cannabinoid found in cannabis plants like hemp and marijuana. Unlike the other major cannabinoid THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. The effects of CBD include: alerting at low doses, sedating at high doses, reduces pain, relaxes muscle spasms, potent anti-inflammatory, stops nausea/vomiting, reduces anxiety/depression, counters psychotic thoughts, anti-oxidant, and neuro-protectant.
Yes! CBD is legal mostly everywhere. CBD’s sister, THC is illegal still in some places. CBD and THC are not the same thing. CBD does not have psychoactive effects, which is why it is legal in most places. It will not get you high.
CBD, marijuana and hemp are basically in the same family. In most cases CBD comes from the hemp plant. Hemp is grown specifically to have little to no THC.
Marijuana, on the other hand, does contain THC.
There are all different kinds of ways to extract CBD.
We stand behind the CO2 extraction method. It seems to keeps the integrity of the plant intact while also maintaining as much plant power as possible for human consumption.
We believe CO2 extraction is a clean and safe way to extract CBD from the cannabis plant.
The simple answer is that it is how much CBD is available to your blood stream or your body.
For example: if you consume CBD, you will have much lower bioavailability. If you vape CBD, the chemicals go directly into your lungs and absorb into your bloodstream from there.
The higher the bioavailability of your CBD, the more quickly and strongly you will feel its effects.
Yes. Pets can benefit from CBD for many of the same conditions as humans: pain, inflammation, and anxiety. CBD is safe to use for pets but their dosage will likely be much smaller than yours. Dogs have a higher concentration of cannabinoid receptors in their brain. This means they are very sensitive to THC. But a small amount of THC, like the amount in a full spectrum CBD hemp oil, is beneficial for animals. We recommend you speak with a veterinarian (holistic veterinarian) before you start giving your pet CBD.
CBD isolate or otherwise called “pure CBD” is the CBD molecule separated from the the rest of the compounds it normally occurs with.
There isn’t a “one size fits all” dosage, and there will be some trial and error while gauging your proper dosage. Not only are we all made differently, we each have our own unique history with the use of substances, medications, supplements, and other things we put in our body. Because of this, we all have different body chemistry, and this will affect how our body reacts to CBD.
As with most substances, individuals with more body mass will require more CBD to experience its effects. The best way is to start small and increase gradually until you find your “sweet spot”.
