What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a compound found in hemp plants. Hemp flower from the plant contains high amounts of CBD. CBD doesn’t contain any of the psychoactive effects THC does. Many benefits make CBD supplements a natural, effective way to holistically treat and find a healthy solution to a variety of conditions including appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory.
How does CBD work?
CBD, as well as all cannabinoids, interact with your body through the endocannabinoid system with cannabinoid receptors. Our body has naturally occurring cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids, that interact with the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid receptors. The endocannabinoid system is key to regulating and balancing your overall health and equilibrium. The receptors communicate a variety of processes such as appetite and metabolism, mood, sleep, memory, and immune response.
What does full-spectrum mean?
Full-spectrum CBD hemp oil is a formula that uses compounds from the entire hemp flower and plant. Using the whole hemp plant can increase the overall effect of the CBD and boost the cannabinoid’s helpful properties. A variety of important nutrients can be found in full-spectrum CBD: essential vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and other trace cannabinoids.
Will CBD get me high?
The simple answer is no: CBD cannot get you high. The hemp flower is a naturally low-THC variety. Some people feel an increased sense of relaxation or a light shift in headspace when taking CBD. This is simply an effect of the CBD and shouldn’t be misperceived as being high.
How much CBD do I take?
When starting a new supplement along with your healthy lifestyle routine, it is encouraged to begin with a low dose and slowly work your way up. Many factors affect the rate that the CBD begins to interact with your endocannabinoid system. Depending on the serving size, type of product, frequency of use, and body size, CBD can start interacting within your system in minutes to hours. It is also possible to build up CBD in your body to increase cannabinoid receptors, which would make the endocannabinoid system more alert to stimulation by cannabinoids. Try our Hemp Softgels for a consistent measured dose.
How often do I take CBD?
Similarly to how much CBD to take, everyone reacts directly to CBD depending on the serving size, type of product, and your body type. When using CBD as a supplement, be mindful of how it makes you feel. If you notice a bright, awakening effect, try CBD in the morning or afternoon when you notice a dip in energy (our Hemp Tinctures and Hemp Softgels are easy to add to your routine). If you notice a relaxed, clear mind, try taking CBD in the evenings to wind down from the day. A gentle massage with our Hemp Balm is a great way to relieve the stresses of the day. Frequency of use is all about adjusting when you take CBD and finding the best routine that works for you.
What way should I consume CBD?
CBD compounds are effective when taken topically as well as orally. Depending on why you're using CBD can help you navigate how you should ingest CBD. If you are looking to take CBD for your brain, immune system, or other areas that are reached through your bloodstream, use oral products, such as tinctures and soft gels, and vaporizers. If the area is close to your skin, use a topical, like our Hemp Balm, to deliver the highest concentration of CBD.
Is CBD legal?
Yes, CBD is legally available in the United States. The CBD must come from high-CBD, low-THC hemp flower. The 2018 farm bill reclassified hemp as an agricultural commodity, which makes it legal to produce hemp-derived products.
