CBD 101

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a phytochemical called a cannabinoid derived from a cannabis plant.

Hemp vs. Marijuana

Hemp contain 0.3% or less of Delta 9 THC (psychoactive phytochemical) whereas marijuana contains over 0.3% Delta 9 THC.

How does CBD work?

CBD is absorbed through the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and supports a healthy nervous system by restoring homeostasis.

How do I take CBD?

CBD can be taken various ways. 1. Sublingual (most common)

2. Topical

3. Ingestibles

4. Smokable/Vape

Commonly asked questions.

1. Is your cbd oil organic?

- Our CBD oil is from organically grown industrial hemp. Our hemp comes from one farm in Nashville, Tennessee.

2. Is your cbd oil full spectrum?

-All of our cbd products are full spectrum unless labeled zero THC. Currently only our topicals are zero THC. 

3. I noticed some labels say broad spectrum - zero THC, what is that?

-Research has proven that other phytochemicals present such as terpenes, flavonoids and polyphenols work together to provide the best benefits. Because of this we use broad spectrum vs. isolate. Broad spectrum means the THC has been distilled out leaving as many phytochemicals behind as possible.

4. What is isolate and do you have any products with isolate?

-We currently do not carry isolate products. Isolate means the cannabinoid CBD has been isolated and does not contain other beneficial phytochemicals. It like broad spectrum contains zero THC.

5. What extraction method is used and is it safe?

-We work with one of the leading extractors of the cannabis industry. They use a food grade alcohol method of extraction commonly used in the food and nutritional supplement industries.

6. If I take CBD will I fail a drug test?

-Yes, more than likely even small amounts of THC will be detected. We suggest having a conversation with your employer before taking it. 

7. What method of taking CBD will produce the fastest results?

-Typically smokable/vape products have the earliest onset, however sublingual and oral methods will have stronger and longer lasting effects.

8. Do your products contain CBC, CBG or other cannabinoids?

-Yes our products are intentionally curated with broad and full spectrum CBD oil because we believe in the "Entourage Effect". Broad and full spectrum CBD oils contain amounts of other cannabinoids.

9. What is the "Entourage Effect?"

-The "Entourage Effect" is the scientifically researched theory that the phytochemicals in cannabis work together in the body to provide heightened therapy vs. an isolated phytochemical.

10. Is CBD safe to take while pregnant or nursing?

-There is currently no research supporting the safety of any cannabis consumption while pregnant or nursing.

11. Will CBD interact with my medications?

-We highly advice and can not stress enough the importance of consulting your physician beforehand if you take other medications. Research is suggesting common drug interactions so please play it safe.

12. Will CBD make my seizures go away?

-We can not make any claims but some people have experienced positive results. Please consult your physician beforehand.

13. I have arthritis can CBD help?

-CBD mainly works by encouraging your body back to homeostasis. Because of this CBD has been seen to work best for inflammatory diseases and illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and arthritis.

14. How much CBD should I take for my arthritis?

-In this case we would suggest you start with the smallest dosage (750mg formula) and work up. If you are on the heavier side, consider starting with our 1500mg formula.

15. I have taken CBD before but it didn't work.

-Many variables could be the reason 1. bad product 2. it was isolate and your body is more receptive to full spectrum 3. you took to low of a dose 4. you took it irregularly 

16. What time a day should I take CBD?

-Our general suggestion is a 1/2 dropper, 2-3 times/day. It is highly suggested that you take it at the same time daily. Sometimes if you notice any fatigues, taking CBD before bed once a day is the best option for you.

17. What is the ECS?

-The ECS, endocannabinoid system is your body's homeostatic modulator. It absorbs, digests and transports cannabinoids throughout the body using receptors and neurotransmitters. These receptors known as CB1 and CB2, have been found in the central and nervous system all over the body. Research suggests that taking a daily supplement of cannabinoids supports the healthy functioning of the ECS and nervous system. Your body's homeostasis is restored or improved when taking a CBD oil supplement. Homeostatic processes include sleeping, appetite, thermal regulation, etc.
