WHAT IS CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 60 active chemical compounds (or ‘cannabinoids’) in the marijuana plant. It’s usually the second-most abundant cannabinoid, behind THC.

DOES CBD COME FROM MARIJUANA OR HEMP? AND WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO?

Marijuana and hemp are two different varieties of cannabis that come from the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa L).

The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD throughout and practically zero traces of THC.

In Europe, hemp plants cannot contain more than 0.2% THC. In USA, the THC limit is 0.3%

Most all CBD-based products come from the industrial hemp plant.

HOW DO I TAKE CBD?

CBD is normally taken via vaping or orally via oil drops that are placed under the tongue and held for 60 seconds before swallowing. Topical creams and ointments are also effective.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body (hence the seemingly endless array of CBD uses).

IS CBD NATURAL?

Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made.

ARE THERE MEDICAL STUDIES ON CBD?

Thousands of scientific/medical peer-reviewed studies have been carried out specifically on CBD. Project CBD is a non-profit organization strictly dedicated to documenting the research progress on this incredible drug.
