CBD has been an extremly hot topic in the world of wellness products for good reason. Beauty, beverage, spas, and many more industries have been implementing CBD for its potential health benifits. Have questions regarding CBD? We have answers! Here is a list of frequently asked questions you may have.
What is CBD?
CBD(Cannabidiol), is a chemical compound from the cannabis Sativa plant. As you should know there are two main types of the cannabis plant, Sativa and Indica used for medical and recreational purposes. Indica delivers a "full-body high" known in the cannabis industry for causing deep relaxation. On the other hand, Sativa is known to be a mental high that delivers an energizing effect, reduces anxiety and stress levels. The Sativa has two species, hemp, and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but there's a much higher percentage in hemp, which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of THC compared to marijuana. CBD products on this website are delivered from the hemp plant for maximum effect.
Does CBD get you high?
Unlike THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) which produces a high or sense of euphoria, CBD reduces the unwanted psychoactive effect by a substantial amount and delivers the beneficial qualities of the hemp plant.
Is hemp oil the same as CBD oil?
The short answer is no. Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant which has no cannabidiol(CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol(THC) properties. Hemp seed oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids which is great for skincare products. Hemp seed oil lacks the therapeutic potential of Cannabidiol. CBD is known for its potential benefits that go beyond hemp seed oil like relieving stress, better sleep, and alleviating joint pain.
What's the differences between CBD and Cannabis?
Cannabis refers to a group of three plants with psychoactive properties, known as Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. In the final stage, the flowers are dried and you are left with marijuana(also known as weed). Marijuana is different from cannabidiol(CBD) because CBD is a single compound that is extracted from the cannabis Sativa plant. CBD contains little to no psychoactive properties but the helpful properties of the plant still remain.
Benefits of CBD
Cannabidiol(CBD) has been buzzing in the wellness industry for being a natural compound that may help you cope with life.
