Top 10 Q's about CBD
1. What is CBD? Officially called Cannabidiol, it is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant which, when absorbed, interacts with a network of receptors in our body called the endocannabinoid system. Scientific research shows us that the endocannabinoid system is one of the most important physiological systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. It is present everywhere in the body both inside and out. It affects our organs and skin. When the signaling is disrupted, many disorders and conditions can persist.
2. Will I get high with CBD? There is no mind-to-body high with CBD products. However, full-spectrum CBD contains up to .3 percent THC aiding in the absorption into the bloodstream.
3. What is Full-Spectrum CBD? Full-spectrum refers to any CBD extract or substance that contains the whole plant – all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, plant matter, and flavonoids. These compounds interact holistically so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts when it comes to the medicinal effects. It is referred to as the entourage effect. Full-spectrum CBD contains up to .3 percent THC.
4. What is Broad-Spectrum CBD? Broad-spectrum CBD contains the whole plant without any THC. All of the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in this extract. It contains multiple cannabinoids and can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect”.
5. What is Isolate CBD? CBD isolate is cannabidiol in the purest form, meaning that the CBD is isolated from all other compounds and terpenes in a process of refinement. It contains no THC.
