CBD 101: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and it is part of a group of many active chemical compounds called cannabinoids that are found exclusively in the cannabis plant.
How does CBD work?
Everyone has a body system called the Endocannabinoid System (ESC). The ECS is a regulatory system that helps balance our body. Specifically, CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body …SO… this is the reason for the seemingly endless array of ways to use CBD…
SURPRISE- We manufacture, our own cannabinoids internally to help manage this system. BUT, due to the stresses of life, health related issues, and lifestyle, we can quickly become depleted of Cannabinoids. It is the Cannabis plant, specifically the Hemp variety, that is the most abundant natural source of plant derived Cannabinoids such as CBD.
By adding CBD into your daily wellness routine, it rejuvenates our ECS to help us cope with stress and respond faster to illness and injury.
Is CBD Natural?
Yes, CBD is 100% naturally occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the Cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made.
Can I get high from CBD?
No. Simply put you cannot get high from CBD because it’s a non-intoxicating compound. CBD is actually antagonistic to the THC Marijuanna high. Research shows, CBD doesn’t bind to your brain like the THC molecules, and that is the reason it does not get you high.
Are there side effects of using CBD? Is it safe?
Most research has concluded that CBD is perfectly safe, with no known side effects; some users have reported drowsiness.
How do I take CBD?
Oral ingestion is one of the most popular methods for consuming CBD. CBD oil is an easy and effective method for consumption because you simply use a dropper to place a few drops under your tongue. Always try to hold the oil under your tongue for at least a minute prior to swallowing. This sublingual method allows for the CBD to bypass your liver and enter your bloodstream at a faster rate.
How much CBD should I take?
The perfect dosage is different for everyone, some need more, others need less. It’s up to you to find your perfect dosage. Generally, we suggest following the product’s recommended serving size for 1 week. If you feel it is not working for you after that time, increase your dosage until satisfied.

How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?
CBD works differently for different people. As with most nutriceuticals, metabolic factors will affect how you react to CBD, like your age, weight and gender. Also, people are turning to CBD to help with many symptoms, so there’s no general response on how CBD will affect you. Our best advice is to use CBD on a consistent basis to see the best results.
Will CBD help me if I am already healthy?

How is THC different from CBD?
THC carries a psychoactive compound that CBD does not. THC affects the brain by binding to naturally occurring receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a different shaped molecule that binds to receptors in cell and body tissue outside of the central nervous system. Thus meaning, a user won’t feel a “head high” or a euphoric-like state of mind.
Can I cook with CBD Oil?
Absolutely. This is a consumer favorite because you can ultimately pair CBD with every meal you make. You can also replace your creamer with CBD oil in your morning cup of coffee.
Why should I try CBD topicals?
CBD topicals are great for a number of reasons. Some consumers may have trouble swallowing oils or do not prefer the taste, topicals can be an alternative route. The CBD compound carries many beneficial properties that when combined with a body or muscle cream, can help to support the elimination of many skin issues, minor burns, scrapes, sores, body aches or discomfort.
Can topicals enter my bloodstream?
No, because a topical is applied directly to your skin, it never reaches the bloodstream. It works differently, the CBD is absorbed through your skin and connects to the closest CBD receptors, in your body.
Can I fail a drug test if I’m using CBD?
While we cannot say for sure what will be the outcome in the event of a drug test, if a product contains the legal limit of 0.3% or less of THC, it may result in a positive test.
