What is CBD?
CBD is just one of more than 100 cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, THC, CBN, etc.) found in the hemp plant. It is non-intoxicating and known for supporting the body and mind through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system may help regulate functions of the body including pain-sensation, inflammation, sleep, appetite, mood, and more.
Is Hemp the same as CBD?
Essentially, yes. Hemp contains high amounts of CBD. It is important to understand that raw hemp extracts contain much more than just CBD. It is believed that the more parts of the raw hemp plant that end up in your final product, the greater the benefits will be. Full-Spectrum Hemp is the cream of the crop because it contains multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds found naturally occurring in the plant. Taking all of these together is known as ‘the entourage effect’ and studies have shown it to be more beneficial than just CBD alone.
Why would I smoke or vaporize Hemp?
Smoking or vaporizing hemp and CBD is just another way to get the compounds into your body. Smoking and vaporizing are seen as the fastest way to get into your system, as your body does not have to process the hemp through your digestive system. Your body also receives a higher amount of cannabinoids through smoking or vaping compared to eating.
Is Hemp the same as Marijuana?
No. Hemp and marijuana are similar in look, smell, and taste, but have one very big difference: the amount of THC. By Federal Law (USDA Farm Bill of 2018) hemp cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. In comparison, most marijuana today contains THC amounts of 5-35%. Hemp will not get you high.
Will I fail a drug test after using Hemp?
Short answer, yes. Long answer, maybe. Hemp contains trace amounts of THC. If you consume a full-spectrum hemp product, you should plan to fail a drug test for THC. There are ‘THC Free’ and ‘Zero THC’ hemp products known as ‘Isolates’ or ‘Broad-Spectrum’ Hemp on the market. You are much less likely to fail if you are using products that contain no THC, but there will never be a 100% guarantee. We always recommend to error on the side of caution.
What is the difference between Full-Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum, and Isolate?
Full-Spectrum means that it contains all of the available cannabinoids, and terpenes including CBD and THC. Broad-Spectrum means that it contains multiple cannabinoids, and terpenes without THC. Isolate means it contains only CBD and nothing else (no THC).
What is the difference between Botanical Terpenes and Hemp-Derived Terpenes?
Terpenes are essentially the smell and taste of the plant. Hemp-Derived Terpenes are extracted directly from the hemp plant and are very expensive. Botanical Terpenes are naturally derived from non-hemp plants (oranges, pine trees, pepper, etc.) and mimic classic weed strains.
