CBD oil is an all-natural substance that is comes from the hemp plant. You may want to try CBD oil due to its many healing benefits. If so, the first question you may have is: Does CBD get you high? It’s a great question when you'd like the benefits of CBD but don't want the psychoactive effects (high).
With the vast and growing amount of research being done on CBD, we are able to understand how it reacts with the body. We also have the ability to isolate the CBD to get maximum results with minimal side effects.
The misconception that CBD gets you high is mostly due to it's relation to THC. CBD oil does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC and DOES NOT GET YOU HIGH.
Series of receptors that interact with phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids to maintain homeostatic functions.
Natural chemical compounds, similar to phytocannabinoids, that are produced by our own bodies.
Natural chemical compounds found in hemp extract that have been studied for various potential effects.
Oil extracted from hemp’s aerial plant parts, containing a natural blend of phytocannabinoids.
Hemp oil is used interchangeably with hemp extract, but be cautious: some companies use this term when they really mean hemp seed oil.
Oil extracted from hemp seeds (nutritious, but doesn’t contain the highly beneficial phytocannabinoids).
If sourced properly, hemp oil extract is legal to sell and purchase in all 50 states. Again, to be considered hemp, the cannabis plant must have less than 0.3% THC
Absolutely not. In order to be legally considered hemp, the hemp plant must contain less than 0.3% THC. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive chemical compound found in cannabis. The 0.3% amount of THC is negligible and cannot produce a high. In fact, CBD is known to reduce the psychoactive properties of THC.
Beware of claims!
You can buy hemp seeds and hemp seed oil in stores, but it is not the same as hemp oil extract. Oil extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant is extremely nutritious but does not contain phytocannabinoids, which are a part of a diverse class of chemical compounds. Hemp oil extract contains many phytocannabinoids including cannabidiol (CBD), which is being studied extensively for its beneficial properties. Hemp seed oil does not contain CBD
We’ve mentioned phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids derived from plants), but did you know that our body naturally produces cannabinoids? Endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by the body) support our endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is composed of a series of receptors located throughout the body. These receptors are labeled CB1 and CB2.
The ECS helps regulate various biological processes, including homeostatic functions. Phytocannabinoids are very similar to endocannabinoids and it has been discovered that they also interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors. With this discovery, it has been acknowledged that phytocannabinoids are an all-natural way to support the ECS and are in our cbd gum.
