CBD FAQs

 Are hemp and marijuana the same thing?

No, they are not the same.  Hemp and marijuana are both species of Cannabis, which is family of plants but they have very distinct differences.  One main difference is the amount of CBD and THC they contain.  The United States Farm Bill of 2014 classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC.

What is CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of several cannabinoids naturally found in the hemp plant.    It can contribute to the health of the nervous, immune system and the body's natural endocannabinoid systems (ECS).  Our CBD oil is extracted from organic hemp seed oil, specifically cultivated to be high in CBD with zero to trace amounts of THC.  There are many studies showing CBD's health benefits. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a "high".

What is THC?

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the compound in marijuana that causes a euphoric high.  CBD oil from hemp seed will not get you high because it contains zero to trace amounts of THC or any other psychoactive compounds. Actually, it has been shown to counteract some of the affects of THC.
