Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant, which is also known as marijuana or hemp.

It’s one of the 114 naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis sativa (hemp) plants. It used in products like oils, cosmetics, and edibles which form a large portion of the CBD industry. Unlike its sister compound, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana it will not get you high.

How does CBD work?
CBD works with the body’s own endocannabinoid system which is a complex biological system within our bodies.

The Endocannabinoid System has three main components that we know about: , enzymes, endocannabinoids, and receptors. These are present in the body regardless of whether someone uses CBD or not. Everyone is born with an Endocannabinoid System.

The enzymes in the system break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids then bind with receptors. Medical researchers have uncovered that CBD doesn’t directly attach to the receptor but somehow influences it. Switching on these receptors is what creates the health benefits that people associate with the compound.
