What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons.
Will CBD get me "high"?
Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users “high.” Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.
Will CBD help my condition?
Due to federal regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not natural hemp CBD can help with specific ailments. We do however urge everyone to research the widely available information online. You can easily find many resources about hemp-derived CBD and its possible benefits. Additionally you may consult your family medical professional.

How does CBD work?
In the last 20 years, natural cannabinoid receptor systems have been discovered in the human body. It is binding to these receptors that cannabinoids produce their pharmacological effects. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans, CB1 & CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain, spinal cord and certain peripheral tissues. CB2 receptors are found primarily in immune tissues.
Is CBD a drug?
CBD is a natural occurring substance found in the cannabis plant; a plant that has been known and used by man for over 5,000 years. It has been incorporated into man’s life for so long, the human body even has it’s own endocannabinoid system, (ECS), with receptors found in our nervous system and our immune system to bind with CBD and THC. This is not unlike how we utilize other nutrients we consume to keep our health and wellness optimum. It could be said that CBD might be a dietary supplement we are meant to take regularly like vitamins and minerals. It is a neuroprotectant and an antioxidant, offering preventive qualities, such as vitamin C preventing scurvy. It has been used medicinally all over the world, treating chronic pain, auto immune conditions, cancer cell destruction, and many other ailments. It is even being studied for its effects on epi-genetics as a preventative substance that may help humans avoid such conditions as Alzheimer’s, Muscular Sclerosis, and Senile Dementia. Most importantly, it may the best supplement ever to help the cessation of addictive substances and behaviors such as smoking cigarettes, taking opiates, and alcohol. In the area of psychotherapy, CBD may be the most promising preventative substance in the treatment of PTSD. Based on the definition of a drug above; CBD does not alter the structure of the body, it only optimizes its intended function of that structure, whether it be a neuron or an immune cell in the body. CBD does not alter the function of the body, again it only optimizes it. CBD restores and replenishes, it has no notable physiological changes in a persons vital signs even at very high doses in the range of 1500 mg. It has no apparent toxicity documentations and it appears that the body only absorbs and uses what it needs, just like most vitamins and other nutrients. With the increase in allergies, auto-immune disorders and epidemic PTSD in our world, CBD may be returning to our world just in time, as the most important nutrient we needed and are lacking in, not another drug.
What is the difference between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Oil?
Hempseed Oil is made from crushing the cannabis seeds which are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, (to maintain healthy cholesterol/lipid levels in the body), as well as other dietary supplements. Many people drink this daily. There is no CBD or THC in the seeds and therefore, not in the seed oil. CBD Oil is made our proprietary extraction process utilizing the whole plant, i.e. the stalks, stems, leaves and flower. Both are said to be from Hemp which is Cannabis Sativa.
Will I fail a drug test?
Most drug tests are geared towards identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoids. If one uses CBD rich cannabis that has only a small amount of THC, the THC may register on a drug test. A drug test geared toward CBD would not be an effective law enforcement tool, given that CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause impairment.
