What Is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a trending ingredient the natural products industry and is the focus of a new area of cannabis research. CBD is one of many cannabinoids, or molecules produced uniquely by the cannabis family. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive element in marijuana), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn't have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and doesn't cause the "high" associated with marijuana.

What Is The Origin Of CBD?

The first person who was successful in extracting CBD from the Cannabis sativa plant was a chemist who graduated from Harvard university, Roger Adams. However, when Adams first managed this in 1940 he wasn’t aware that he succeeded in extracting a chemical compound and didn’t even know what he had done. Years later, Adams and other scientists realized what he had done and started researching the possible benefits of CBD. Modern CBD history begins in 1946, when Dr. Walter S. Loewe conducted the first CBD test on lab animals. These tests gave proof that CBD doesn’t cause an altered mental state. That same year Dr. Raphael Mechoulam identified CBD’s three dimensional structure. That’s why he’s often credited as the scientist who discovered CBD. Further research continued in the 1960s on primates. Finally, British pharmacologists released the first CBD oil meant for therapeutic use. In the next few decades, the research continued. In 1980, Dr. Mechoulam made another breakthrough in CBD history when he ran a study which showed cannabidiol could be a key factor in treating epilepsy.

How Do I Use It?

CBD can be consumed in several different ways. There is CBD Capsules, CBD Edibles, CBD Flower, CBD Hair Care, CBD Isolate, CBD Oil Concentrates, CBD Pet Care, CBD Skin Care, CBD Tinctures & CBD Vape Oil.

Many of our customers prefer CBD Capsules because they are pre-measured and easy to take. All you need is a beverage to wash down your CBD capsule and you are on your way. Because they don’t need to be refrigerated, you can keep them where you use them most or keep them with you. Made with full spectrum hemp oil, our CBD capsules offer the same nutrients and active compounds as the natural hemp plant. 

CBD Edibles are starting to become very popular as an everyday wellness product. CBD edibles have numerous benefits. Primarily, they allow you to quickly and easily get your daily intake of CBD through a flavorful CBD-infused product. CBD edibles are becoming a common way people encourage wellness, and our flavorful CBD gummies and CBD energy chews are a great option.

CBD Flower the most nature form of cbd, is a common choice for consumption.  Like cannabis it is consumed by smoking. Being that smoking hemp buds involves combustion, it is considered less healthy than vaping or eating. However, it is still an effective way of administering CBD as, just like with vaping, absorption is quick and efficient. Many people like to smoke hemp flowers as a way to help quit cigarettes, to offer some counterbalance to high-THC cannabis, and for general relaxation purposes. Hemp flowers can be smoked in a joint (cigarette-like roll-up) or in a bong or water pipe.

CBD Skin & CBD Hair Care, also commonly called CBD topicals, include balms, salves, lotions, oils, shampoos, conditioners, and other beauty products that are infused with hemp-derived CBD oil. These products are applied directly to the skin and hair to take advantage of the benefits of CBD.

With no measurable levels of THC or dense plant material, crystallized CBD Isolate is perfect for making your own personalized CBD products. CBD isolate powder has no taste or smell to it and can be integrated into a number of products, offering unmatched versatility. You can use CBD Isolate by placing it under your tongue, add it to your vaporizer, make your own CBD edibles, blend it into smoothies, and more. We also use our CBD Isolate to create CBD products free of the concern over THC. 

CBD Oil Concentrates is an all-natural botanical extract sourced straight from the stalks and seeds of hemp. You can place hemp CBD concentrate extract under your tongue for 60-90 seconds to allow the active compounds to be absorbed quickly through the mucous membranes under the tongue. CBD concentrate can also be swallowed, a method that delivers the CBD to your bloodstream after it passes through the digestive system. 

Our customers can even use CBD for their pets. CBD for Pets is a fast growing segment of the pet market. Pet owners can take advantage of CBD for their fuzzy loved ones because all mammals share a common endocannabinoid system. Products like CBD oils, CBD dog and cat treats, and skin balm provide your pets with daily CBD. 

CBD Tinctures & Liquids mix full spectrum CBD oil or CBD isolate with vegetable glycerin, ethanol, or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. Tincture oils and CBD liquids are typically administered by dropping underneath the tongue, so some products are also sweetened or infused with natural flavors for a more enjoyable experience. CBD tinctures and liquids can also be mixed into smoothies or folded into yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal, and more. 

If you’d rather vape your daily CBD, then CBD Vape Oil is for you. Designed to be vaporized and inhaled, CBD vape oil delivers its CBD directly to the lungs where it is absorbed into the body. CBD vape oil is designed to be used with a vaporizer, a personal device that heats the botanical oils to their boiling point. This produces a pure, clean, CBD-filled vapor that can be safely inhaled into the lungs and quickly absorbed into your body. CBD vape oils come in a variety of flavors that emphasize natural hemp terpenes, or fruit and dessert-inspired flavors.
