What Is CBD and the Endocannabinoid System?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most beneficial compounds found in the hemp plant, but there is so much more in high quality hemp.
All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a series of interconnected receptors - CB1 (mind) and CB2 (body). The body produces endocannabinoids (anandamide and 2-AG), but some researchers believe there may be a deficiency due to modern stresses, environmental toxins, injury, excessive exercise, diet and / or lifestyle. Phytocannabinoids may help these receptors reach balance or homeostasis, potentially benefiting stress response, immunity and healing.
Full Spectrum & The Entourage Effect
The “entourage effect” is what many leading researchers believe makes full spectrum hemp so effectively therapeutic. It’s the synergistic effect of CBD, other phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and minerals working together in a natural state. It can only be found in high quality phytocannabinoid rich full spectrum hemp. Ask for a certificate of analysis (COA) showing cannabinoid and terpene test results.
Cannabidiol (CBD) Isolate
CBD Isolate is pure, isolated CBD compound, all by itself, with no other active compounds. While our preference is for full spectrum oil, isolate does have its place, as it contains zero THC. Individuals who have strong feelings against THC and / or cannot tolerate even the slightest risk of failing a drug test may prefer it. Our pet products are created with isolate, as dogs in particular have a higher number of endocannabinoid receptors than do humans, and therefore are more sensitive to THC.
What Is The difference Between Cannabis, Hemp & Marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the cannabis plant. There are over a thousand strains of cannabis. The difference across strains boils down to the resin content and levels of THC, CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp, unlike marijuana, has negligible amounts of THC, the psychoactive substance that gets you high. For medicinal purposes, the most effective blends of cannabis contain high levels of CBD, mixed with other cannabinoids and terpenes (to maximize the Entourage Effect), but only a small amount of THC (to avoid the psychotropic "high" effect).
Will Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil Get Me High?
No. All of our products contain less than 0.3% THC and are not psychoactive. People tend to find relief from stress and physical ailments using CBD, but it will not get you "high".
Is It Legal?
All of our products comply with the 2014 Farm Bill regarding hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC. Illinois recently passed the Industrial Hemp Act SB2298
, allowing hemp to be grown and manufactured. CBD-branded retail stores openly operate in Illinois.
Will I Have Trouble On A Drug Test?
Though our products contain less than 0.3% THC, it is possible they can trigger a positive result on a drug test. Consult your doctor and / or employer if this is a concern.
Is It Safe To Use?
CBD is sold over the counter and considered safe to use. However, always consult a health care professional before using any dietary supplements.
We care, are knowledgable and offer the highest quality hemp products at a fair price
The process begins with top quality plant strains / seeds that are non-GMO, and naturally high in phytocannabinoids and terpenes. The plants are grown domestically, horticulturally, organically and outdoors in ideal growing regions.
We work with small family owned farms who tend their fields by hand and are environmentally conscious stewards of the land. The phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, chlorophyll and minerals are then extracted from the flowers (buds) and leaves using the safest, purest and most effective methods. Artisans then blend the hemp extract with other organic oils to create our products. Lastly products are tested to ensure safety, potency and a robust cannabinoid and terpene profile.
Our products are not inexpensive, but they are the highest quality we can find and reasonably priced.
