FAQs

CBD is cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical compound found mainly in the Cannabis sativa plant.  CBD has been shown to interact with the human endocannabinoid system, or internal cannabinoid system.  The cannabis plant produces chemicals that are structurally similar to some of the chemicals specifically made by the human body.  CBD and other cannabinoids act as a “key,” and fit into a “lock,” or receptor site, on the surface of our cells. The endocannabinoid system is part of your body’s self regulating system which helps keep the body in balance, also known as homeostasis.

The whole of the animal kingdom has an endocannabinoid system, or internal cannabinoid system.  CBD is structurally similar to the compounds our bodies produce.  Cannabinoids work on neurotransmitters distributed everywhere in body. The effect of CBD on the endocannabinoid system and its wide distribution throughout the body explains the myriad effects of CBD.  Look within the research tab articles to view what science is behind CBD claims.  Specifically look for explanations of the inflammatory response. It is important to state what CBD does not do.  CBD does not cause intoxication.

The hemp plant produces hundreds of phytocannabinoids that act in concert together creating what’s called an entourage effect. While CBD is the main component, it is but one of the molecules at work. The other types of phytonutrients, such as terpenes (e.g. limonene), essential oils (e.g. lavender), and flavonoids (antioxidants) in addition to the other cannabinoids present such as CBN, CBG, CBC account for the way a person feels. An analogy is that a soloist needs the other instruments to bring a symphony to life.

While it’s true that CBD can effect different people in different ways, CBD does not cause a person to become intoxicated or lose control.  Many people report feeling a sense of well-being, but not a high feeling.  While it’s not common, some people report feeling tired when using CBD, but this effect is generally mild and inform dosage adjustments.

Scientific nomenclature is a standardized way to classify and refer to an organism.  In this case, we are referring to the plant Cannabis (the genus) sativa (the species.)  Historically, Western scientists referred to this plant as Cannabis sativa, and today includes both marijuana and hemp. Hemp is a legal definition indicating a subspecies of the Cannabis sativa plant that grows out of the ground with less than 0.3%THC.  Marijuana is the Cannabis sativa plant that contains more that 0.3%THC.

Historically, marijuana was the name given to this plant in central and South America.  Around the 1930’s when the US prohibited cannabis, the term ‘marijuana’  was made popular by federally backed propaganda to induce a negative connotation against the plant and xenophobia against Mexican immigrants in an effort to link the plant with “undesirables.”  Hemp was generally the term for the plant when used for industrial applications (rope, etc.).
