What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 80 known components found in cannabis. There’s an ever increasing amount of research pointing to various health benefits in CBD, all while being non-psycho- active. The component responsible for giving users a “high” is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is prevalent in marijuana.

CBD is not considered to have any street value due to its lack of psychoactive effects and risk of abuse. Rather, CBD in discernible amounts reportedly promotes a calming, sedative effect. FDA regulations prevent us from making any health related claims as it relates to people taking our products. This means that we cannot tell you about all the benefits of CBD, but you can do your own research.

What’s the difference between CBD and THC?

Chemically they are both cannabinoid compounds, which makes their molecule look similar but are very different. There are over 85 known cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the two most common, and therefore the most studied. THC is a psychoactive compound, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive.


What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the Cannabis genus of plants, bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is exclusively produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can refer to the subgenuses of Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis.

Industrial hemp is grown to be fibrous and durable, with very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible. Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have as many flowering buds as their breeding can allow. Marijuana is bred with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC, while industrial hemp naturally has trace amounts of THC and fairly high amounts of CBD.

Hemp’s chemical profile means that you can’t get ‘high’ from it and it is used to create medicinal remedies, food and oil, as well as other products including rope, bricks, natural polymers, fiber, clothes and many more.


Why are CBD products so expensive?

First, let me say I’m sorry that CBD Hemp Oil costs as much as it does. Its unfortunate that a natural product cost so much. But, the initial price point consideration is how much hemp plant material has to be processed to get enough CBD oil to make CBD products. These operations, which are not ours, they are other companies companies, have to grow, cultivate and process an extreme amount of hemp plant to yield sufficient amounts of CBD oil.

Then, the growers and manufacturer of the products have their costs for taking the raw CBD gel and turn it into a an actual product. The manufacturers typically have the added expense of laboratory testing that has to be done on the raw CBD gel to make sure its safe -AND- they have to continually have their products laboratory tested at various stages to ensure what they’re putting out is what the label actually claims and is of the legal levels.

Some people are verifying what scientists have already proven about CBD’s health benefits, while others share stories about success with ailments that scientists haven’t yet produced conclusive evidence about regarding CBD’s efficacy. Therefore, as the potential benefits of CBD are not yet fully understood and can vary greatly between individuals, it’s impossible for anyone to tell for sure when, how and if CBD will help you.

At this time the best we can do is steer you towards informative articles and studies on sites like ProjectCBD.org & PubMed as well as conducting your own research on the internet to help you learn about that side of CBD.
