Frequently Asked Questions

General Faqs

What does CBD stand for?

cbd is the term used for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical compound (also known as a cannabinoid) found in cannabis plants.

What is THC?

THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, the main compound found in marijuana plants. THC is what gives marijuana its psychoactive properties or “high” effects.

Are CBD and marijuana from the same cannabis plant?

No, CBD and marijuana come from different plants. They do, however, come from the same species of cannabis plant. There are three recognized species of cannabis plants—Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. Both CBD and marijuana are derived from the Cannabis sativa species. While CBD and marijuana both come from the same species of the cannabis plant, they are derived from different species of Cannabis sativa. CBD is derived from hemp, while marijuana is derived from the marijuana species.

Do CBD products contain THC?

CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC to be legal according to Federal Law.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are different species of Cannabis sativa and bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is exclusively produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be derived from Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica.

Both hemp and marijuana contain CBD, but there’s a much higher percentage in hemp. Hemp also has much lower levels of THC (less than 0.3%) than the marijuana species.

Industrial hemp is grown to be durable, have very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible—this can make it easier to extract the high amounts of CBD and smaller amounts of THC. 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.

Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have many flowering buds with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC. Marijuana is used recreationally and medicinally only.

Is CBD addictive?

CBD has no physically addictive qualities, meaning you can use as much as you want as regularly as you want without worrying about becoming addicted.

When you stop taking cbd, you won’t experience any withdrawal effects, even if you’ve been taking it for a long time. along with the lack of harmful effects, this makes cbd a very risk-free and natural choice for users.

What is the difference between isolate, broad spectrum and full spectrum?

It’s entirely safe to use any amount of cbd without worrying about overdosing.

Many studies have even shown that high doses of cbd can be taken without any harmful effects. for instance, in a study on using cbd for social anxiety issued subjects a dose of 600mg of cbd without any side effects. Other studies have found that you can even take high doses daily without any issue.

Can you overdose on CBD?

cbd isolate: in scientific terms, an isolate is the purest form of a compound, which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its environment and isolating it from all other compounds.

with that being said, cbd isolate is the purest form of cbd, which is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.

full spectrum cbd: full spectrum cbd is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids.

broad spectrum cbd: broad spectrum cbd is a bit of a mix between full spectrum cbd and cbd isolate. like full spectrum cbd, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like cbd isolate, thc is completely removed.
