CBD or Cannabidiol is the second most prevalent cannabinoid found in cannabis sativa, which has been clinically shown and anecdotally reported for decades to have a wide range of significant health benefits.
No. CBD, unlike its cousin THC, has no psychoactive effects and can actually counteract the effects of THC.
Hemp and Marijuana are different species of the same plant genus cannabis sativa. Hemp was cultivated for more industrial uses such as textiles, oils foods while its cousin marijuana was recognized for its psychoactive and recreational affects. THC and CBD are the two most prevalent cannabinoids in Cannabis Sativa and the plant can be bred to increase or decrease the presence of either cannabinoid depending on the desired use. Much like oranges, grapefruits and lemons are all from the citrus family, Hemp and Marijuana are related only in the fact that they come from the same species but have very different phytochemical profiles and uses.
CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) by stimulating CB 1 and CB 2 receptors and changing cellular function primarily in the nervous and immune systems. The cannabinoids from cannabis, along with endogenous cannabinoids (naturally produced in the body), promote the health of the ECS by helping it regulate homeostasis. Biologist Robert Melamede describes the ECS as “…the master modulator, which is constantly multitasking, adjusting and readjusting the complex network of molecular thermostats that control our physiological tempo.” Cannabinoids nourish and balance the ECS, which is why it is so effective in so many different types of health conditions.
According to the research, cannabidiol and other phytochemical constituents of cannabis are considered to be generally safe. In hemp’s thousands of years of use there has not been one recorded fatality or major illness contributed to it’s use that we are aware of.
CBD is used by patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety, anti-cancer, anti-spasm effects from conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s disease, MS, Diabetes, Parkinsons, Addictions, PTSD, Epilepsy, Neurological and Auto Immune disorders, Insomnia, Stress, Anxiety, Inflammatory Diseases and much more. For a full list of health benefits or to get educated on the ECS, go to www.projectcbd.org The reason that CBD can affect so many health conditions is that it works to fine tune the ECS System, which is likened to the operating system of our body.
Yes. CBD from Hemp or Marijuana is still CBD, however there is much more concentrate of CBD in Hemp. Therefore we use hemp extract only for our CBD oil using CO2 extraction for the purest, highest quality CBD available on the market.
CBD is a natural occurring botanical compound and it works in conjunction with other cannabinoids, terpenes, vitamins, minerals, lipids and other natural phytochemicals present in industrial hemp. The natural matrix of such substances, along with body weight and other factors will help determine the dosage. It’s usually best to start out with a small dose as recommended on the bottle and then increase slowly until you reach your desired reaction. Some people get results with the smallest dose while others need a little more. Basically somewhere between 3.3 mg to 16.6 mg is a good range for most people and situations.
We believe in total transparency from harvest to your hands. Our raw material is tested during several stages of processing. In addition, we take additional steps to validate using third party testing to ensure that what we purchase as a raw material is indeed exactly what we are paying for thus what you are paying for as well. We pledge to you that we bring you only the best, certified CBD oil that can be purchased on the market.
We are not aware of any negative side effects of taking CBD only. Remember though, less is more and there have been remarkable results reported with just small amounts of CBD. It is however safe at higher doses and historically not one case has been reported with regard to an adverse reaction to CBD.
CBD is available on the market in all kinds of delivery systems from tinctures to gums to pills and sprays. We prefer the tincture because of the high absorption rate of the network of capillaries under the tongue. It is well established that this network of capillaries is an excellent way to administer active compounds such as phytocannabinoids. They can be easily absorbed and enter the bloodstream for rapid results. This method was the choice for homeopathic medicines for this reason. We believe it is the best, most efficient way to take CBD.
We ship CBD oil legally to all 50 states and many countries depending on their laws. Our CBD is grown in the US and we have procured legal opinion letters about shipping our CBD and believe we are within the limits of the laws to ship it as long as there is no THC in our product. The levels of THC are so low that they are barely detectable, which makes our products legal to ship in the US.
No. Hemp oil is made from pressing out the oil from the seeds of the hemp plant and while it is nutritious, it is not the same as CBD. It can also go rancid or oxidize very quickly. Extracting CBD oil from hemp is quite another thing. CBD oil is derived from a laborious and sophisticated extraction method that strips out the highly bioactive spectrum of phytocannabinoids, fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids and other molecular components of the plant using heat, time and pressure or solvents. CBD is the very essence of the plant’s life force. The same type of process is used in creating essential oils. CBD is a very concentrated oil that is extracted from the hemp plant and contains hundreds of known and unknown phytochemicals.
Yes, they are somewhat similar in that we use the same industrial hemp strains that contain high CBD, but only trace levels of THC, at barely detectable levels, therefore it will not produce any psychoactive affects. All strains of industrial hemp can vary slightly in other active compounds, but the most important element is the level of CBD. We use only CO2 extraction methods to obtain the purest, most concentrated, full spectrum oil possible. We are not certain what method Charlotte’s Web CBD is produced from as there is no indication of the type extraction process they use on their website or any of their marketing material.
Supercritical extraction, the method we use to produce our pharmaceutical grade quality oil, uses pressure, heat and time to strip the plant of it’s bioactive compounds. The process is done using pressurized carbon dioxide at proprietary temperatures and contact time without the use of chemical solvents. This method is more expensive than solvent extraction, but it is the safest and most effective and efficient way to yield the cleanest full spectrum of natural nutrients found in the plants biogenetic profile.

They are similar, as the hemp oils and potential effects are similar looking and acting. But our Hemp CBD oil is more highly standardized and will usually have a much higher content of cannabidiol than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. And oils produced through his method will usually have a much higher THC content.†

Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually more a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC and CBD content of the final oil is always varying greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays. And because our Hemp (not marijuana) is naturally high in cannabidiol (CBD) the CO2 oil extract consistently has a high amount of CBD and only trace amounts of THC. † Our product is always made from industrial hemp, and Rick Simpson Hemp Oil from marijuana, so the differences that were discussed in question #4 apply here as well. Because our CBD hemp oil is highly standardized and the CBD content is always the same high amount, it is much more useful in trying to figure out a proper regimen and serving size.†

Both Rick Simpson Hemp Oil and our CBD Hemp Oil are being used for similar reasons, and both are getting similar feedback as to the success stories being reported.†
No. Our CBD oils are all made from industrial hemp, which only has trace amounts of THC, so there is no psychoactive effect from taking our products.
We source our industrial hemp and CBD extracts from locally operated hemp farms in the United States. We do not, will not, and have never sourced our hemp from China. We CO2 extract our own CBD oils from locally grown hemp in Colorado, USA.
We have a very strict internal quality assurance system, and we have third party laboratories analyze all of our hemp-CBD extracts and our final products for Cannabinoid Potency, Heavy Metals, Bacterial and Microbials, Mycotoxins (Fungal), and Pesticides.
CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phyto-chemicals (such as CBD) from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most expensive extraction method, and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method in the world.

Supercritical is a high pressure process that damages most heat sensitive chemicals, but can extract much larger molecules such as lipids (omega 3 and 6), chlorophyll, and waxes.
