Frequently asked Questions

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoid molecules produced by cannabis, second only to THC in abundance. These plant-derived cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids (phyto = plant in Greek), are characterized by their ability to act on the cannabinoid receptors that are part of our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). While THC is the principal psychoactive component of cannabis and has certain medical uses, CBD stands out because it is both non-intoxicating and displays a broad range of potential medical applications including helping with anxiety, inflammation, pain, and seizures. These makes CBD an attractive therapeutic compound.

What are the different kinds of CBD?

You will see there are three main types of CBD:

  1. Full-Spectrum: includes all cannabinoids naturally found in the cannabis plant, will contain 0.3% THC or less.
  2. Broad-Spectrum: contains multiple cannabinoids naturally found in the cannabis plant, will not contain THC.
  3. Isolate: CBD Isolate contains only CBD, with NO other cannabinoids, terpenes, or plant compounds.

Will CBD get you "high"?

Despite being chemical cousins, THC and CBD have very different effects. The primary difference is that THC get you high while CBD does not. This is because THC and CBD affect our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in different ways. The major ECS receptor in the brain, CB1, is activated by THC, but not with CBD. In fact, CBD can get in the way of compounds like THC, preventing them from activating the CB1 receptor. This is why the THC:CBD ratio is so important for influencing the effects of cannabis products.

Is CBD Regulated by the FDA?

No, CBD is not regulated or approved by the FDA.

For serious inquiries, please consult your primary care physician.

What is a tincture?

In very simplified terms, a tincture is a concentrated herbal extract that is made by soaking herbs in a liquid. Over time, the fluid is infused with herbal extracts, and the herbs are strained out to leave a potent, ingestible tincture.

How do I use a tincture?

CBD tincture is an easy-to-use and versatile product. You can ingest CBD tincture orally by placing your dropper of oil under the tongue and holding the oil for 30–90 seconds before swallowing.

Some users mix their dropper of CBD tincture into a warm or cold beverage. However, if the CBD tincture is oil based, it will likely not mix well in liquid.

Disclaimer: Our CBD products are derived from non-intoxicating hemp plants. In rare cases, it may be possible to trigger a false positive on a urinalysis due to the presence of cannabinoid metabolites. This is true of any quality hemp extract because of the inconsistent nature of drug screenings.
