ABOUT CBD

CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant. Over the past few years, research has suggested that CBD offers the widest range of medicinal benefits of any of the cannabinoids. Some of these benefits may include reducing inflammation, relieving pain, stress, and anxiety, and improving sleep quality. These are only a few of the benefits researchers are studying regarding the use of CBD. 


CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it will not get you high. Contrary to popular belief, CBD is not traditionally extracted from the marijuana plant. CBD is extracted from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant species, but it is a separate plant from marijuana. The marijuana plant is actually quite low in CBD content, with the plant's profile usually containing less than 10% CBD. In comparison, industrial hemp has a much higher CBD content, containing over 20% CBD, while maintaining THC levels of less than 0.3%. That is why industrial hemp is a better option for extracting CBD. Industrial hemp contains higher levels of CBD and ensures THC levels fall within legal limits (maximum 0.3% THC).


Full spectrum CBD products contain trace amounts of other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Because full spectrum products contain trace amounts of other cannabinoids, full spectrum products may contain up to 0.3% THC. This is not enough THC to produce any sort of psychoactive effect and it is too small of an amount for your body to metabolize. It is of belief that full spectrum CBD products deliver better results based on what is known as the “Entourage Effect”. The Entourage Effect suggests that each individual cannabinoid has it’s own unique benefits, and when all of the cannabinoids work together, it will produce the best results.

When you use CBD, it interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system. Every mammal has an endocannabinoid system that runs through their central nervous system. Research suggests that CBD stimulates the body’s endocannabinoid system and helps promote homeostasis in the body, which reduces the sensation of pain and helps suppress inflammation.


Tens of thousands of people have found relief from a wide range of ailments through the use of CBD products. Some of these ailments include stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, epilepsy, chronic pain, and inflammation.


Because CBD products come from industrial hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC, CBD products are legal to purchase, sell, possess, and use in all 50 states. Visit our shop today to view our product selection!
