What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants (cannabis plant).  It's a naturally occurring substance used in products such as oil to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm and is non-psychoactive.  It's cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive and found in marijuana.

There are three terms you may be familiar with - cannabis, marijuana, and hemp.  And it can get very confusing, so we will break it down:

Cannabis or cannabis sativa is the actual name of the plant.  It has two primary species - hemp and marijuana.  Both of these contain CBD, but there is a higher percentage of CBD in hemp which has little (less than 0.3%) to no levels of THC compared to marijuana.

CBD Oil or Hemp Oil - is there a difference?  

You bet there is a difference!  CBD Oil is derived from the whole plant or "flower" of hemp and contains 80+ cannabinoid compounds - which are proving to be beneficial to several ailments.

Hemp Oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant.  There are NO cannabinoids - CBD or THC - in hemp oil. Hemp oil is packed with healthy fats and is often used in beauty products due to it moisturizing attributes.

More about CBD Oil

CBD extracted from hemp contains less than 0.3% THC or less which does not produce a "high" like marijuana.  CBD is legal in all 50 states and is a sustainable crop. The stalks and seeds are used to make textiles, food, paper and building materials, while the "flower" portion of the plant is used for CBD oil.

CBD Formulas

There are three types of CBD formulas: Full Spectrum, Distillate, and Isolate. 

Full Spectrum includes ALL cannabinoids found in the plant.

Distillate includes less total cannabinoids than Full Spectrum, but a higher percentage of CBD.

Isolate means the CBD is isolated in a pure form from other cannabinoids in the plant and may not offer the same benefits as full spectrum.
