CBD Oil FAQs
What is CBD? What is Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active compounds found in a Cannabis Sativa plant. When an oil is extracted from the plant, CBD can account for up to 40% of the phytocannabinoid profile of the extraction.
CBD has been found to be non-psychoactive and in the last few years has been further studied for its potential effects and benefits in human health.
Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil refers to an oil extraction of a Hemp CBD rich plant that contains a full phytocannabinoid profile. Meaning that the oil contains terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids that are naturally occurring in the Hemp CBD rich plant.

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
In the last few decades, much research has been done to understand how phytocannabinoids interact with the body system. Throughout the years, discoveries have been made that found specific receptors in the body that interact with phytocannabinoids and that it is all managed by an internal system that can be found in plants, animals, and humans: the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a regulatory system in the body that uses receptors and the production of certain chemicals to help bring the body back to homeostasis. Two of the more know ones the CB1 and CB2 receptors that can be found in the brain, nervous system, immune system, and all other bodily functions and components.
When cannabinoids (specifically phytocannabinoids, meaning plant based) like CBD are ingested they are received by the ECS in the body and the receptors in the ECS use the cannabinoids as needed to regulate the different body functions. This discovery has lead researched to discover not only how phytocannabinoids like CBD interact with the body, but also discovered the benefits it contributes to the body.
