1.) What is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is one of the over 100+ phytocannabinoids (beneficial chemical molecules) found in the hemp variety of the cannabis sativa plant. CBD and THC are the two primary cannabinoids in cannabis sativa. In hemp, CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid and THC is federally regulated to have less than 0.3% concentration present in the plant.
2.) What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil is the oil that is extracted from the flowers (buds) and leaves of the hemp plant. It is extracted through various methods, such as natural solvent or CO2 extraction processes, which are the two most common methods used in the CBD industry. After extraction, the end product is called crude CBD oil and it can then be processed further to create various types of CBD Oil.
3.) What is the difference between full-spectrum, broad- spectrum and isolate CBD and Delta 8 THC?
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil is the final product of extracted oil that contains the natural whole plant profile of beneficial cannabinoids, including CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, to name a few, along with the terpenes and flavonoids.
Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil is basically full-spectrum CBD oil that has had the cannabinoid THC mitigated (reduced to only a trace) and is considered THC Free.
CBD Isolate is CBD Oil that goes through an extraction process that removes ALL plant compounds and isolates only the cannabinoid CBD.
CBD Isolate can come in the form of CBD Isolate Crystals, CBD Isolate powder or CBD Isolate Oil. It is the purest form of CBD (99% purity).
Delta 8 THC is a minor cannabinoid that is naturally occurring in the hemp plant in very small concentrations. Delta 8 THC is not produced directly by the same cannabinoid-synthesizing enzymes as THC. Rather it is converted or degraded THC (Delta9 THC) in the aging plant. Delta 8 THC is a less potent form of THC, meaning that it has many of the beneficial properties of THC without the potent psychoactive properties. Delta 8 THC has gained recent popularity in the CBD industry due to its enjoyable calming effects and potential benefits.
4.) Will CBD make me feel high?
CBD is non-psychotropic, meaning it does not make you feel ‘high’. CBD is known for its soothing and calming effects while still maintaining mental alertness and clarity.
5.) How Does CBD work?
There is a vast biological regulating system throughout the body called the Endocannabinoid System. It is found in the brain, organs, muscles, tissues, skeletal system and immune system. The body naturally produces endocannabinoids (neurotransmitters) that bind to receptors on cells throughout this vast network to activate and regulate basic processes, including, pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function and reproductive function.
The overarching goal of the Endocannabinoid System is to regulate these various processes and systems to maintain homeostasis, which means, biological balance in response to changes in the external environment.
CBD, which is a plant-based cannabinoid, in some ways mimics the activity of the body’s naturally produced endocannabinoids in various locations and systems.
Simply said, the full array of benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids is due to both the direct and indirect interaction with the Endocannabinoid System.

CBD is non-toxic, considered generally safe and next to impossible to overdose. However, occasionally, some people have experienced dry mouth, lightheadedness, and change in digestive function such as diarrhea.
There are no CBD side effects that require medical attention. Dry mouth can be solved with drinking water, tea or another beverage. Reducing your dosage usually solves both lightheadedness and digestive issues.
