CBD FAQ

All you have asked about CBD
WHAT IS CBD (CANNABIDIOL)?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of over 85 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. While its exact benefits and effects are still being researched, it is interesting to note that the United States Department of Health and Human Services holds a patent titled ‘Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants’, which claims that:“Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses. Cannabinoids, which can be either consumed (phytocannabinoids) or produced naturally by the body (endocannabinoid), are chemical compounds that interact with the body’s central regulatory system (the endocannabinoid system). This system is known to manage homeostasis and affect bodily processes such as appetite, mood and sleep. CBD is an example of a phytocannabinoid. Although our bodies can naturally produce its own endocannabinoids that bind to cannabinoid receptors in both the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, phytocannabinoids help to kickstart our central regulatory system and provide powerful benefits.

WHERE DOES CBD COME FROM?

CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis. It is the second most abundant compound in cannabis, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. CBD is a compound that can be found in both psychoactive cannabis (marijuana) and non-psychoactive cannabis (hemp). However, most legal CBD products that you find on the market will be extracts from hemp. In contrast to marijuana, federal law allows for the cultivation, processing and marketing of hemp and hemp products, which would include cannabinoids derived from industrial hemp. Passed by Congress and signed into law by the President in 2014, the Farm Bill permits the growth and cultivation of industrial hemp in states where hemp is legal to grow. (Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014).

DOES CBD GET YOU HIGH?

CBD often gets mixed up with THC, which is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. CBD and THC are the two most abundant compounds found in cannabis. Yet, they have fundamentally different properties and benefits. THC, an intoxicating and illegal substance, it is responsible for causing marijuana users to get “high.” Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as THC. A 2011 review published in Current Drug Safety concludes that CBD “does not interfere with several psychomotor and psychological functions.” While CBD can be separated from THC and CBD cannot get you “high,” there is still a lot of stigma as many people tend to mistake the two compounds. Just know this: It is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD extracted from industrial hemp plants.

HOW DOES EARTHMD CBD OIL COMPARE TO OTHER CBD OIL PRODUCTS?

We use nano-emulsion technology which makes our product more bio-absorbable, and more efficient than raw CBD oil (6% bioavailable) which means that not only is it more effective and fast-acting, it is less expensive in the long run because you need less per dose comparatively speaking.

IS CBD LEGAL?

Yes, CBD oil made from industrial hemp plants are legal to be sold and bought in the United States. In 2014, Congress signed into law the Agricultural Act of 2014 (also known as the “Farm Bill”). Under Section 7606, federal law does allow for the cultivation, processing and marketing of hemp and hemp products, which would include cannabinoids derived from industrial hemp. Under U.S. federal law, industrial hemp products (containing less than 0.3% THC) can be commercially shipped to all 50 states.

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT than Charlotte’s Web, CV Sciences, and Prime my Body (Quick Silver)?

GENETICS: Our unique genetics is rich in CBD and other minor cannabinoids, and abundant with 30+ terpenes. CBD is more than 90% of all cannabinoids and primary terpenes are beta-caryophyllene, humulene, linalool, pinene, and bisabolol, and synergistic with CBD.

 

0.0% THC: Our proprietary manufacturing uses chromatography to remove THC but retains all other synergistic molecules in hemp oil. The removal of THC combined with preservation of diverse cannabinoids, terpenes, lipids, and flavonoids, ensures that the full spectrum nature of out oil is preserved. The full-spectrum oil is what is responsible for the entourage effect, which makes our hemp oil superior.

 

PROPRIETARY PRODUCT TECHNOLOGIES: The nanoemulsion based softgels are absorbed into the blood stream four-times higher than hemp oil and work quickly in full or empty stomach.

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT OUR EXTRACTION PROCESS?

Extraction:

  • Uses food-grade ethanol or supercritical C02
  • High CBD, 0.0% THC, high terpene plant genetics leads to high-quality extract
  • No external additive
  • Closed, enclosed process to preserve terpenes

 

Purification:

  • THC is completely removed
WHAT DO PHYTOCANNABIONIDS DO HOW DO THEY WORK?

Phytocannabinoids can be used to supplement endocannabinoids. When the nervous system or immune system do not work as intended because of endocannabinoid deficiency, phytocannabinoids used as supplements help with restoring the proper functionality of the central nervous system and immune system.

WHY FULL SPECTRUM PHYTOCANNABIONID Hemp Oil is better than using purified Cannabidiol isolate?

Scientific evidence exist to show that CBD in the presence of other plant constituents improves the dose response in a standardized hemp extract, showing it is more potent or efficacious than pure CBD isolate.
