Hemp Extract and CBD FAQs

You may be hearing more about hemp and CBD more than ever before. Even still, there are plenty of questions you may have. We wanted to provide you with a brief breakdown of FAQs about hemp extract and CBD. Read on. 

What Is Hemp Extract?

​​The hemp plant is closely related to the cannabis plant. From the same genus of plant species, cannabis contains higher levels of THC, (the component that gets you high) while hemp extract has higher levels of CBD, and does not get you high.

What Is CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol and it is one of the over 700 active components of the Hemp plant. Unlike its cousin THC, CBD is non-intoxicating. Our bodies naturally make a cannabinoid substance that is called 2-AG. 

What Is 2-AG?

2-AG is an endocannabinoid and is present at fairly high levels in the central nervous system. 2-AG triggers the cannabinoid CB1 receptor within the endocannabinoid system. 

What Is The Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system is a biological nerve signaling system helping to regulate cognitive, physiological, and emotional stability. Together, the CB1 and CB2 receptors help to trigger activity within the endocannabinoid system.

Will Hemp Extract or CBD Make Me Feel High?

Hemp extract will not give you any psychoactive effects. With 0% of THC, there is no need to be concerned about what many describe as a “high” feeling post-consumption. Some that consume hemp beverages find themselves feeling balanced, less stressed, and relaxed without feeling sleepy.

Why Is Hemp Good For The Environment?
