HEMP | Refers to a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant and the fibers it contains, which were originally used to make fabrics.
CANNABIDOIL | Also known as CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis.
TERPENES | Terpenes are responsible for the aroma and flavors of cannabis, and influence its effects by interacting with cannabinoids.
FULL SPECTRUM | Refers to a CBD product that contains all elements of the cannabis plant, including up to .3 percent THC.
BROAD SPECTRUM | This CBD product contains every element of the cannabis plant (all terpenes and all cannabinoids) except THC.
CBD ISOLATE | These products are 99% CBD. Everything contained in the plant matter is removed — including 99.9% of THC and other beneficial cannabinoids — until only a powder or crystalline form of CBD is left.
TINCTURE | A tincture is a concentrated liquid herbal extract. Relative to CBD it is any liquid CBD oil that has been modified. For example, water soluble CBD is called a tincture even though the CBD is still an oil. CBD oils do not have any modifications to them.
BIOAVAILABILITY | How fast CBD enters the bloodstream to take effect.
CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS | A Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is a document from an accredited laboratory that shows the quantity of various cannabinoids in a product.
ENDOGENOUS | Internal or self-made; originating from within an organism or specifically humans.
CB1 and CB2 RECEPTORS | Cannabinoid receptor sites are located throughout the body, from the brain to the connective tissue. Cannabinoids bind to or stimulate these sites in order to regulate the function of the muscular system, immune system, nervous system and more.
CANNABINOID | A cannabinoid is a chemical compound that acts on the endocannabinoid system receptors found throughout the body.
ENTOURAGE EFFECT | It’s the result of the many components in the cannabis plant interacting together with the human body to produce a stronger effect than any one component on its own.
ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM | Also known as the ECS, the main function of this mammalian system is to maintain bodily homeostasis, or keeping the body balanced even when the environment changes.
PHYTOCANNABINOID | The chemical compounds in cannabis plants that mimic the endocannabinoids naturally produced by the body. CBD and THC are examples of phytocannabinoids, but there are at least 113 different phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant, each producing unique effects in the body.
HEMP SEED OIL | Derived from industrial hemp, hemp seed oil is created by pressing the plant’s seeds. It has no therapeutic benefits but is often used as a dietary supplement and a low-saturated-fat cooking oil. THERE IS NO CBD IN HEMP SEED OIL.
AGRICULTURAL ACT OF 2019 | United States Congress voted at the end of December 2018 to pass the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, more commonly referred to as the Farm Bill. This legislation made CBD products legal to purchase in all 50 states. Under the Farm Bill, industrial hemp (where CBD products are derived from) must contain less than .3 % THC.
DELTA-9 TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL | This is a primary cannabinoid found in cannabis and the one responsible for its psychoactive effects. It works on endocannabinoid receptors in the brain to release dopamine.
