FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The primary chemical compounds produced by the hemp plant and found in the body are called ‘Cannabinoids’. There are more than 113 phytocannabinoids identified from the hemp plant, the psychoactive components such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the non psychoactive such as cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC) & more. A system within the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has receptors that these compounds fit into, which are used to support cells, a healthy immune system, and central nervous functioning. Each cannabinoid has it own unique benefits for human use, and also pets.
The endocannabinoid system (also known as ECS) is a network of receptors located in the brain, and throughout the central and peripheral nervous system. These receptors are more commonly referred to as CB1 and CB2, which produce two main cannabinoids 2AG and Anandamide. The ECS plays a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis of the body, regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.
Cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD is a non-psychoactive phytocnnabinoid that replicates the structure of endocannabinoids found in the human body (pets have this system too). CBD is the most abundant, naturally occurring component of the hemp plant, and is widely claimed to possess amazing health benefits.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) contains the psychoactive component that is often associated with the “high” feeling. Cannabinol (CBD) does not contain the psychoactive component. Both THC and CBD provide distinct medical benefits that work together or alone to deliver a wide variety of health and well-being benefits.
PCR is an acronym for ‘Phyto-Cannabinoid Rich’.
No. Any product labeled ‘isolate’ will contain no THC, which is the cannabinoid searched for during drug testing. We do offer products with a full cannabinoid profile, so we advise contacting your healthcare provider, employer, or the testing facility to inquire about your concerns.
Yes. 3rd party testing is a frequent and important step to ensure we are selling top quality products, free from pesticides and contaminants.
For tinctures: Shake well before each use. Squeeze the rubber end of the dropper to uptake approximately 0.6ml (half the dropper) of CBD oil. Put oil under tongue and hold for 30 seconds, then swallow. Alternatively CBD can be added to food and drinks. Shake before use, squeeze rubber end of dropper to uptake approximately 0.6ml (half the dropper) of CBD oil, and squeeze content into your food or drink.
It is advised to seek a professional opinion for any concerns or advice for specific conditions.
Store in a cool dark place, so not exposed to direct sunlight or heat. Product does not need to be refrigerated, however this is personal preference. CBD products will last 12 months if stored correctly.
Unlike the ‘never ending’ list of side effects from commonly used pharmaceutical medicines, the side effects of CBD have been known to be very minimal, if any. Some users have reported a mild sedative effect. Side effects from CBD, if at all, will be dependent on tolerance so it is advised to start with a low dosage and build from there. There are no “high” or psychoactive properties with CBD and you will be capable of everyday tasks.
Dosage options for each person and condition will vary. It is advised to consult with a doctor or health care professional to discuss the best dosage of CBD for individual needs. Start with a lower dosage, and increase where need be.
There are many different strains of the same species of plant, hemp is no different. Cannabinoid oils are extracted from the entire plant (stem,leaves,seeds etc), whereas hemp seed oil is extracted from only the seeds of the plant. Hemp seed oil is extracted from pressing hemp seeds. The hemp plant has many different elements and is used as a supplement for food, as an ingredient in lotions or topicals, and can be used to make composites used in building and industrial materials. Cannabinoids extracted via Co2 extraction are generally used for medicinal purposes. Be aware that some companies may label their products as ‘CBD’ or ‘Hemp oil’, when it is actually hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is generally low in cannabinoids. Always be sure to check for 3rd party testing or ask for Certificates of Analysis (COA).
