Learn About CBD
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is one of over 100 Cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD can contribute to the relief of anxiety, sleep deprivation, inflammation, and balance the overall homeostasis of the body through the Endocannabinoid system.
How does CBD work in the body?
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.
What are CB1 and CB2 receptors?
What is a Cannabinoid?
A cannabinoid is a compound that interacts directly with our body's Endocannabinoid System.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors that interact with cannabinoids to maintain vital functions throughout the body. The ECS helps to regulate appetite, digestion, immune function, inflammation, mood, sleep, reproduction/fertility, motor control, temperature regulation, memory, pain, and more.
The overall function of the ECS is a vital component in maintaining the body's homeostasis, which is the ideal balance between interdependent elements in the body.
Does CBD show up on a drug test?
According to Quest Diagnostics Director of Science and Technology, Barry Sample, CBD likely won’t show up on a drug test: “If the product contains only CBD and has had the THC removed, then an individual being tested would not be expected to test positive for marijuana or marijuana metabolite.” In other words, marijuana drug tests screen for THC, not CBD.
While certain products utilize CBD Isolate (0% THC), Full Spectrum products may contain the federal legal limit of .3% or less THC. Although highly unlikely, may show up on a drug dest depending on the method of testing as well as your individual metabolic breakdown.

What is the Entourage Effect?
The Entourage Effect is the beneficial effect of ingesting multiple components of the cannabis plant together instead of ingesting one component at a time. When multiple components of the cannabis or hemp plants act on CB1 and CB2 receptors, stronger effects are produced.
Does CBD get you "high"?
Absolutely not. CBD is completely non-psychoactive, and will deliver the healing properties of the cannabis marijuana plant without getting you "high".
Is CBD legal?
Products containing CBD are federally legal as long as the product contains less than .3% THC.
Can you overdose on CBD?

Is CBD addictive?
CBD is not addictive which adds to the unlikelihood of overdose.
