CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Those cannabinoid varieties are responsible for the variety of physical and mental effects the plants can have on the body and mind. CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the most well-known and studied cannabinoids, though they are vastly different and are sourced from different plants: Cannabis (Marijuana) and Hemp. The two are actually just varieties of the same plant species: Cannabis Sativa. Each produces THC at a different level, which determines the plant’s legal status. In order to be considered hemp, the plant must produce no more than 0.3% THC, thus developing higher levels of CBD and supporting cannabinoids in its place. Working with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD is known for its ability to improve overall wellness without any psychoactive effects commonly experienced when using THC products.
While we’re still in the early stages of researching and understanding the human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), we know that it is responsible for regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response. Even if you’ve never used hemp or cannabis, your ECS is active, producing its own endocannabinoids as needed to maintain homeostasis in your body. While studies are ongoing to explain how and why, scientists agree that cannabinoids, including THC and CBD, have a similar effect on the ECS and helping to improve the body’s natural response.
To get the most out of each dropper-full of CBD, all our products are full-spectrum, meaning they contain all the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes found in each plant. Studies have shown the multiple cannabinoids found in full-spectrum hemp products work together to produce an “entourage effect,” a much more effective experience than isolated CBD. All of our products are CBD-focused, but other notable cannabinoids include CBG, CBC, CBN, CBDA, THC.
Adding CBD to your wellness routine can be confusing. Because research of the ECS is in the early stages, there is no published guide or clinical study with an accurate dosage for each individual, or for your specific ailment. Just like any other supplement, everyone responds differently to CBD. We recommend starting at a low dose based on the charts below, assessing how you feel, and adjusting accordingly.
