What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 400 chemicals produced by the Cannabis family of plants. Among these are many compounds found in other plants such as terpenes and flavonoids. This is why extractions from different Cannabis plants may offer a variety of familiar scents or tastes such as pine or citrus. Chemicals found only in the Cannabis family, such as cannabidiol (CBD), are called cannabinoids.
What is the difference between Marijuana and Hemp plants?
Marijuana and Hemp are both members of the Cannabis family; however, Marijuana is typically higher in THC and lower in CBD while Hemp is typically higher in CBD and lower (below 0.3%) in THC.
Is Hemp Oil the same as CBD?
CBD and Hemp Oil are not the same thing! Cannabidiol (CBD) is the actual active ingredient that is derived from members of the Cannabis family. In contrast, Hemp Oil is oil commonly derived from the seeds of the Hemp plant and may contain negligible concentrations of cannabinoids.
Is CBD legal?
The 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill, was signed into law on December 20th, 2018. The law, among other things, removed certain industrial hemp plant varieties from the Controlled Substances Act and allows for the Hemp plant and its derivatives to be shipped and sold across state lines. States and localities, however, may have different or more restrictive policies relating to CBD and hemp products. You should familiarize yourself with your local and state laws regarding hemp and CBD products.
What is a CBD Tincture?
A CBD tincture is a cannabidiol-rich suspension designed to deliver easy-to-measure quantities of CBD.
What is the best way to take a tincture?
Tinctures are designed to be absorbed via membranes in the mouth. Use the graduated dropper included in the bottle to measure the desired amount of liquid. The measured amount should be delivered under the tongue and allowed to absorb for between 20 to 30 seconds.

What is the difference between Full Spectrum CBD Distillate and CBD Isolate?
A full spectrum CBD distillate uses the entire plant in the extraction process to create a final product that includes all of the cannabinoids present within that particular plant. It usually presents as a viscous, amber-colored resinous material. While full spectrum CBD distillates contain primarily CBD (approximately 70%) they may also contain a variety of other cannabinoids that were present in the source material. In contrast, CBD Isolates are products that have undergone further refinement from the CBD distillate base and, as the name implies, isolates CBD from all other cannabinoids and produces a 99% pure cannabidiol product. Depending on which final product is being created, isolate or distillate will be chosen for use based on which material is most suitable for the application.
What can I use CBD products for?
There are a multitude of reasons that people use cannabidiol. We encourage consumers to do some research on why so many people have decided to make CBD a part of their daily regiment.
How much CBD is right for me?
As every potential consumer is unique, we always recommend starting with very low quantities and then increasing or decreasing your intake of cannabidiol as you learn how your own physiology interacts with CBD.
Will CBD interact with any over-the-counter or prescription drugs?
Yes, it can. We urge you to consult your physician directly before beginning the use of CBD or any other product. Researchers have identified that CBD can inhibit the enzyme designated as Cytochrome P450. This enzyme plays an important role in how the body responds to certain drugs. It’s not just CBD that can inhibit this enzyme, grapefruit has also been shown to produce similar results - hence the common warning from medical professionals to avoid grapefruit before, during, and after taking medications. The prudent and responsible course of action would be to consult your physician before adding any new elements into your routine.
