CBD & Cannabis Related Questions

CBD is short for cannabidiol and is derived from the Cannabis Sativa L plant. CBD(Cannabidiol) is just one of many different molecules, known as cannabinoids,” found in the cannabis plant. 

Cannabis Sativa L is an annual herbaceous plant which boasts a high concentration of compounds called phytochemicals (cannabinoids, terpenes, terpinolenes, etc.) 

Different genetics of this plant express themselves differently from strain to strain. Cannabis Sativa plants with a delta-9 THC level of .3% and lower is legally defined as hemp while any cannabis sativa plants testing at .3% delta-9 THC and above are legally defined as marijuana. 

A chemical substance in plants, such as Cannabis Sativa L., that binds to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain & body. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. A few examples of cannabinoids include CBG, THC, CBD, CBDa, CBN, etc. 

There are over 140 known cannabinoids and two of the most commonly known cannabinoids are CBD (cannabidiol) & THC (tetrahydracannabinol).

The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.

Simply put, your endocannabinoid system operates as a circuit breaker on a cellular level.

It’s entire purpose is to maintain homeostasis (balance) between your body’s different systems.

Hemp & marijuana are legal definitions of the cannabis sativa plant. Hemp is defined as cannabis sativa with a Delta-9 THC concentration of no more than .3% by weight. Marijuana is defined as cannabis sativa with a Delta-9 THC concentration greater than .3% by weight. These definitions are outlined in the 2018 Farm Bill defining the difference between hemp and marijuana.  

Hemp-derived products are cannabis-derived products that are extracted from hemp ( cannabis sativa plants testing below a concentration of less than .3% Delta-9 THC by weight.)

CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydracannabinol) are both cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. You’ve probably heard that THC will get you high and CBD won’t. There are many different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. CBD and THC are just different parts of the same plant. 

No. CBD (Cannabidiol) does not bind to the human cannabinoid receptors (CB1 receptors) in the same way that other cannabinoids such as THC (Tetrahydracannabinol) do. It doesn’t actually fit in the slot. Still…no high.

Full Spectrum CBD products will have trace amounts of THC which bind to the fat cells of our bodies. Over time the THC will build up in the fat cells of the body, which can cause you to fail a urinalysis. If you are currently being drug tested, please ask for THC-free options such as broad spectrum or isolate products. 

Yes, CBD in hemp-derived products are legal. You will not be required to produce a medical marijuana card in order to purchase hemp-derived products. 

CBD is classified into three categories: Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolate.  The difference  between them depends on their cannabinoid content.

Full Spectrum CBD contains all of the compounds found in the hemp plant, including a very small percentage of THC (less than 0.3% by weight.) Your best products will be full spectrum due to an effect called, “the Entourage Effect,”which basically means that the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts. 

Broad Spectrum CBD is similar to Full Spectrum: all the naturally occurring cannabinoids remain but THC is completely removed. 

Isolates are a specific cannabinoid isolated from the rest of the plant mixed with a carrier oil or offered in a powder form. Examples of isolated cannabinoids include CBD, CBN, CBG etc. 

Your product will have listed on the label the total concentration of CBD as well as the concentration per serving.

CBD itself does not have an expiration date. However, CBD oil products can degrade and should be used within a certain period of time. They should be stored in airtight containers either in the refrigerator or in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Please refer to the product expiration dates for more information.
