What is CBD?

CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is one of many cannabinoids that exists in nature and is completely unique to the cannabis plant. Along with THC, the cannabinoid is one of the most well-known and studied compounds, though, there’s a fundamental difference between the two: CBD mainly derives from hemp plants and is considered non-psychoactive.

Over the years, there has been a vast amount of testimonials and scientific investigation reporting the cannabinoid to possess great therapeutic potential due to its affect on our endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Full of naturally-occuring endocannabinoids (endo, meaning within), this extraordinary biological system exists in all living vertebrates and plays a crucial role in regulating many different functions in the body, including, but not limited to our moods, stress, appetite, energy levels, how we manage or experience pain, and many more.

If the ECS system fails to function properly or has deficient endocannabinoids levels, there’s great risk of becoming susceptible to a number of health difficulties. Due to its purported health benefits, CBD may provide relief from a wide variety of ailments, as it is non-addictive and doesn’t have any overdose or withdrawal potential.

Like THC, will CBD make me feel “high?”

The compound CBD is completely non-psychoactive, which means you will not feel the high normally associated with marijuana’s THC. Though closely related to CBD, THC is a fundamentally different compound found in the cannabis plant responsible for causing a high. So no, CBD will not cause you to feel “high.”

How is CBD made?

CBD derived mainly from hemp plants, which contain a high CBD content and extremely low THC levels that aren’t nearly enough to cause a “high” feeling. There are many different methods to extract CBD from hemp plants, however, the most common method is CO2 (supercritical carbon dioxide) extraction.

This is a safe and fluid substance that is also used in the food industry. After the CBD is extracted it is given to a third party for extensive testing for safety and purity to ensure the best end product possible.

How much CBD should I take?

CBD is a personal experience. Dosage for CBD typically depends on a few factors including your body type, health condition, and individual body chemistry. Because everyone is different, everyone will metabolize CBD differently, however, the standard starting dose is 5 milligrams. Like with anything, we recommend that you start small and adjust accordingly until you find the desired results that best works for you and also be sure to consult with your primary healthcare provider before using CBD.
