What does CBD stand for?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. The term spares us from trying to say and spell cannabidiol over and over again.
The “cannabis” portion of the word indicates the compound’s origin in the cannabis plant.
The “diol” portion of the word indicates the two alcohols in the compound. (In this case, alcohol simply describes a molecule made of carbon (C), oxygen (O), and hydrogen (H) atoms—not a tasty adult beverage.
Cannabis sativa is a plant that has two well-known strains: marijuana and hemp plants. The marijuana plant has a high amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a substance that has psychoactive properties and gets you high. In contrast, the hemp plant has less THC, but more CBD (cannabidiol), a substance that is similar to THC but has no psychoactive effects.
Does CBD get you high?
CBD alone—when it’s not paired with other compounds in the cannabis plant, such as THC—does not produce the psychoactive (mind-altering) effects we perceive as “getting high.”
Just one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant, CBD can be isolated from the other compounds to make a product with practically no chance of triggering a high.
How is CBD extracted?
We use the CO2 extraction method to extract CBD. This is because it provides a clean, precise extraction that massively reduces the contamination potential of other methods.
CBD oil products are a supplement, not a medication. Though CBD is generally well tolerated and considered safe,
What strength/mg should I start with?
We have 3 different strengths in oils in 30ml bottles!
1000mg is great for beginners and a great way to start your CBD journey, this strength could provide mild relief and assistance with sleep, clearing the mind, and starting to strengthen the immune system.
2000mg might work wonders for those who are looking for something a bit stronger than mild relief for symptoms of anxiety, sleep and general health, this is for regular users looking for daily use and is the most popular strength.
5000mg is the highest strength, this strength might work well for dealing with any chronic issues such as pain management, sleep disorders and all the other benefits CBD provides.

How does CBD work in the body?
Your body has an endocannabinoid system, which in short means that it has receptors for cannabinoid compounds like CBD and THC. CBD and THC both interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system, a biological communication system that regulates a wide array of functions, like:
- Immune response
CBD and THC have chemical structures similar to the body’s own endocannabinoids, which allows them to interact with the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid receptors.
Scientists have only recently begun conducting detailed testing of exactly how CBD, THC and other cannabinoids illicit their beneficial effect on the human body.
Guide to CBD Oil
It’s important to mark the distinction between CBD oil and hemp seed oil. The former is a concentrated form of CBD isolated for its potentially beneficial effects, while the latter is cooking oil. Hemp seed oil doesn’t contain CBD, THC, or any other cannabinoid. Instead, it is rich in vitamins, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids that will have a good impact on your health, but without the medicinal cannabinoids.
There are three primary forms of CBD oil used in CBD products:
Full-spectrum CBD oil contains more than one cannabinoid. It is not only CBD, but also CBG, CBC, CBN, and trace amounts of THC. Aside from the cannabinoids, this type of CBD oil also comes with other ingredients, such as terpenoids, flavonoids, different vitamins, fatty acids, and fiber.
The amount of THC in full-spectrum CBD is less than 0.3%. This isn’t enough to cause psychoactive effects. However, due to the entourage effect, you may feel subtle psychoactivity depending on how much was taken.
The entourage effect happens when there is more than one cannabinoid in a product. When consumed together, cannabinoids mutually enhance each other’s effects. If you’re worried about consuming THC and would like to avoid it altogether, you should look into the next two types of CBD.
Broad-spectrum oil is similar to the full spectrum, only it doesn’t include any THC. You still get the same variety of cannabinoids and terpenes; and enjoy the full entourage effect but without any trace amounts of THC.
The third type of CBD oil is the CBD isolate. This is the most processed form of CBD – a CBD isolate product contains purely CBD and no other substances/cannabinoids. When you’re using CBD isolated from other cannabinoids, you don’t get the entourage effect and the same level of medicinal benefit as a broad or full-spectrum oil.
How does CBD oil work?
CBD may have a powerful effect on easing pain relief, reduces depression, anxiety, and is anti-inflammatory.
Please note that CAN DO oil needs to be used long-term and consistently used to have a significant effect. We recommend using it for a month to see effective results.
Can you use CBD oil in your vape?
How does CBD affect animals?
CBD affects animals in a way very similar to humans, scientists have shown that it interacts with the body's endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which helps to maintain healthy and stable bodily functions ranging from brain function, digestion and even skin health.
What is the difference between THC & CBD?
CBD and THC are different compounds. THC is psychoactive; it affects your mental processes (it gets you high). CBD is not psychoactive.
CBD and THC, like siblings, have a lot in common, but they also have many key differences.
Different compounds, or cannabinoids, CBD and THC both come from the same parent plant, but they interact in your body, specifically in your body’s endocannabinoid system, in different ways.
CBD and THC share a molecular structure, but they have a different arrangement of atoms. This simple difference in atomic arrangement explains why the two compounds interact with your endocannabinoid receptors in different ways and why CBD doesn’t get you high while THC does.
Can you drive after having CBD?
Yes, you absolutely can! It won’t show up in the drug test as there is no THC in it.
