General Questions

What is hemp flower extract?

Hemp flower extract is an oil derived from the flowers of the industrial hemp plant. The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration is the distinguishing factor between industrial hemp and marijuana. Industrial hemp cannot have a THC concentration more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.

It is popular as a wellness supplement and contains cannabinoids,  such as cannabidiol (CBD), as well as polyphenols, essential amino acids, and minerals like magnesium, calcium and phosphorus.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds, found in the Cannabis Sativa L plant, that act on the cannabinoid receptor network known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). There are at least 113 different phytocannabinoids that have been isolated from cannabis with the most well-known of these being non-intoxicating cannabidiol (CBD), and the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system of cannabinoid receptors that work within the body’s central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system to maintain homeostasis or balance. The ECS is receptive to both our own naturally-produced endocannabinoids as well as to the phytocannabinoids found in hemp. Studies have revealed that the ECS is involved in regulating a variety of body processes such appetite, mood, pain sensation and more. 

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is non-intoxicating and the most abundant cannabinoid found in industrial hemp. CBD is ideal for those interested in the benefits of cannabinoids without the “high”.

A June 2018 report from the World Health Organization reveals that “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential… CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications.”

What is CBDa?

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is the nonpsychoactive acid precursor to cannabidiol. CBDa is one of an estimated 113 compounds known as cannabinoids. CBDa is found in the raw hemp plant, and once exposed to heat and/or light, will convert (decarboxylate) to CBD. 

Preliminary research suggests that CBDa inhibits COX-2 (the enzyme that promotes inflammation) and stimulates 5-HT1A receptors (involved with controlling anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea and vomiting).

How do I use CBD?

We’ve created a CBD User Guide that will answer many of your questions, but please feel free to email us if there is something we did not cover!

Will I fail a drug test if I use CBD and CBDa?

Although our products comply with the federal and state mandated THC limit of less than 0.3%, we cannot guarantee the results of a drug test. If a failed drug test is a concern, we would recommend doing further research at a website such as ProjectCBD.org before making the decision to consume any CBD products.
