Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Cannabidiol?
A: Cannabidiol, is a cannabis compound that can provide many medical benefits. Cannabidiol does not provide a “high” - the euphoric or dysphoric feeling of associated with the THC compound. Our Cannabidiol is sourced from organic hemp, which only contains trace amounts of THC (0.3% THC or less).
Q: How does CBD work?
A: When you ingest Cannabidiol the compound is introduced to your Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The ECS system is meant to receive and process Cannabinoids which can come from many sources. This system has receptors in the body and brain categorized in two groups CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are for the most part concentrated in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are mostly located in the periphery of the body's organs and are most commonly found in the immune system.
Cannabidiol does not directly impact these receptors which is why you don’t get the high of THC. Instead it indirectly impacts these receptors in a positive way. Cannabidiol also assists with raising the body's organically produced Cannabinoids and essentially inhibits the body's enzymes that break down the Cannabinoids.
Q: How can I ingest Cannabidiol?
A: When wanting to use Cannabidiol infused products, there are a variety of different delivery methods to choose from. As research develops and more is known about how Cannabidiol interacts with the Endocannabinoid system, more methods of delivery are becoming available. We cater fit our products to the four main types of delivery methods which include inhalation, orally, sublingually, and topically. The specific effects that may occur from one delivery method may vary from one person to another, so it's important that we offer a range of products to accommodate everyone’s individual needs.

Q: How long do the effect of infused products last? How long till I feel effects?
