About CBD

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a class of diverse chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. They are found naturally in the cannabis (marijuana and hemp) plants. The most well-known cannabinoids include THC, which is psychoactive and responsible for the "high" associated with marijuana use, and CBD, which is non-psychoactive and has been studied for its potential therapeutic effects, including reducing anxiety and pain. Cannabinoids have various medical, recreational, and therapeutic uses, influencing a wide range of physiological processes.

What is Cannabinol?

Cannabinol (CBN) is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is known for its psychoactive properties, CBN does not produce a "high." CBN is created when THC ages and is exposed to oxygen and light over time, which means its often found in older cannabis. While research on CBN is less extensive than on THC and CBD, early studies suggest it may have potential therapeutic benefits, including as a sleep aid, anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, and in reducing symptoms of neurological conditions. Its effects and uses are currently being explored further in medical research.

What is Cannabichromenne?

Cannabichromene (CBC) is one of the lesser-known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, CBC is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the "high" commonly associated with cannabis use. Discovered over 50 years ago, CBC is considered one of the "big six" cannabinoids prominent in medical research. It is believed to have various potential therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain-relieving), and anti-viral activities. Early research suggests that CBC may also contribute to the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis through its interaction with other cannabinoids, possibly enhancing the overall effects of the plant.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants, including cannabis, and some insects. They are responsible for giving plants their distinctive aromas and flavors. In cannabis, terpenes play a key role in differentiating the scent and taste of each strain, ranging from citrus and pine to earthy and skunky.

What is Cannabigerol?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Often referred to as the "mother cannabinoid," it serves as a precursor from which other cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, are synthesized through enzymatic processes within the plant. CBG is present in lower concentrations compared to THC and CBD in most cannabis strains, making it less well-known.

What is Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract?

Broad-spectrum hemp extract is a type of CBD product that contains various cannabinoids and compounds found in the hemp plant, except for THC, the psychoactive compound. This extract includes CBD, minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN, terpenes, and flavonoids, which together may offer therapeutic benefits through the "entourage effect" — a theory suggesting that cannabis compounds work better together than in isolation. Broad-spectrum products are chosen by individuals looking to leverage the potential health benefits of cannabis without experiencing the psychoactive effects associated with THC.

General Answers

What is the right product for me?

Choosing the right THC product depends on several factors, including your experience with cannabis, your desired effects, medical needs, and personal preferences.

Will I fail a drug test?

Yes, consuming THC can lead to a positive result on a drug test. Drug tests, especially those designed to detect cannabis use, often look for THC or its metabolites. THC can remain detectable in your system for varying durations depending on several factors.

Do the products expire?

Yes, THC products do expire. Like many natural products, cannabis and cannabis-derived products can degrade over time. The potency, flavor, and overall quality of THC products can diminish, affecting their efficacy and safety.
