What is CBD?
Let us start at the beginning. First and foremost, CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is just one of the 113+ chemical compounds found within a group of plants under the name cannabis. Further, is it important to note that CBD is derived from hemp, not marijuana.
While both plants are labeled cannabis, their legal difference is the level of a psychoactive compound called tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.
In fact, hemp contains .3% or less THC and marijuana contains .3% or more THC. Therefore, hemp derived CBD is non-psychoactive.
Is CBD legal?
Yes, hemp-derived CBD products with extremely low THC content (not more than 0.3% THC) are legal at the federal level.
Does CBD get me high?
No! CBD is not intoxicating and won´t get you high. THC is the cannabinoid that causes the high. All our products are sourced from industrial hemp and contain less than the federally legal limit of 0.3% THC. These minimal trace amounts of THC aren't enough to get you intoxicated when taken as directed.
How does CBD work?
CBD is a compound that is also found naturally in the body. With that, CBD works through the body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS), which constitutes part of the human nervous system. This system includes cannabinoid receptors called CB1 and CB2.

Balance is key
When CBD enters the body its chemical makeup gives it the ability to dock in these receptors and bind with the ECS. In turn, this interaction helps regulate various vital functions. A balanced ECS can lead the body to achieve homeostasis, meaning running at optimal human performance.

How much CBD should I take?
Due to the fact that no two people are the same, CBD dosage comes down to your unique, individual preference. However, here are some pointers for finding a dose that works for you.
For your first dose, start low then slowly increase to a dose that is comfortable.
Try oils to start - due to the drop format, they tend to be easier to steadily increase.
If you were prescribed CBD by a medical professional, let them provide a starting dose.
If this is your first time using CBD, we suggest that you take the lowest dose. There is no way to know what's the right dose for your body, so starting off low and monitoring how you feel will set you up for CBD success in the future.
