All You Need To Know About CBD
People all around the world are exploring alternative medicine, and CBD has proved itself to be the top plant medicine for a wide variety of reliefs. The use of CBD has become popular since 2018 as it has said to be a good natural alternative to the use of allopathic medicine. If you are new to the CBD it is smart to do your research and become fully aware of what it means to use CBD. This is the right place to come with any question as we do our best to answer the most pressing questions related to CBD.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one type of cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in Cannabis plants that affect our central nervous system by binding to receptors in our bodies Endocannabinoid System which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including: Appetite, Pain, Mood, and Memory
Marijuana and hemp are two different plants within the cannabis family. CBD is found abundantly in both plants but when we discuss CBD in the market we are referring to a product that has been extracted from Hemp alone to ensure the THC levels are below 0.3%.
There is a major difference in the experience of using CBD and THC. The main difference is that THC is a psychoactive. It affects the brain in a mind-altering experience. This happens because of the scientific process of molecules binding to naturally-occurring CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a non-psychoactive. It is a completely different shape of the molecule that binds to CB-2 receptors in cell and body tissues outside the central nervous system. This difference directly reveals itself in the way our bodies and minds connect with the plant.
The hemp plant is an entirely different strain or species of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD throughout the entire plant with minimal amounts of THC. Hemp plants are known to contain less than 0.3% THC while marijuana might contain as much as 35% THC.
The answer is no. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
CBD can be purchased as a tincture (fluid), edibles (ex: gummy, capsule etc..), smoke-able (vapes or pipes), and topical (ex: creams, lotions and balms). Tinctures are taken sublingual (placed under the tongue and then swallowed). Capsules and gummies are digested and smoke-ables are inhaled (Controversial). Each of these delivery methods are effective but sublingual is most common with great results. It is very important to note that each individual experiences CBD differently. Dosages vary from person to person. Each individual will need to experiment with dosage size to find what works best for.
Also; While CBD is legal to use, the FDA has not yet approved it. There are no regulated guidelines on dosage.
When you see a product called CBD oil, you are looking at a form of CBD that is liquid. This is a cannabis extract that contains CBD and can be ingested orally.
Our bodies are naturally made with CBD receptors. Our bodies function with CBD by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in every cell and tissue type in the human body.
CBD is legal in all 50 states, but each state sets its own regulations and permissions of use. Some states only permit CBD use for medical purpose and require a person to have a prescription. In states where medical marijuana is legal, you can be 100% sure CBD is perfectly legal. While many states have fully legalized CBD it is recommended you check with your states regulations and legalities. The fact remains that millions of people buy and use CBD products every day, and the demand is only getting more popular and widespread.
Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made. It is good to take note and be aware of how the CBD company is extracting the CBD. Many companies use Co2 or Ethanol to extract this CBD. So, although CBD is natural, there are both good and bad ways to extract it. At HemPur we use the purest possible extraction process which you can learn about here.
Full spectrum refers to the chemistry in the CBD oil. The oil is extracted to maintain as much of the plant chemistry as possible. The oil is complete with the cannabinoid fractions and terepenes that the hemp plant contains.
There is a benefit to using Full Spectrum because the plant chemistry as a whole is proving more beneficial than oils without the full chemistry.
Depending on the plant and the type of extraction method the nutrient value in the CBD oil will differ. The more terpenes and cannabinoid’s saved during the process, the more benefits are offered to the consumer! When taking full spectrum CBD you get every single benefit that the cannabis plant has to offer.

CBD can be found in shampoo’s, blemish creams, and moisturizers. CBD topical products are proving very effective. As research continues to find more benefits for the use of CBD more and more products will be developed.
Many people are curious if using a topical CBD will show up in a drug test, and the answer is that your chance of having it show up is very low. Most drug tests are screening for THC, and a CBD product should have no more than 0.3% THC in it. Topical CBD creams never enter the bloodstream, so it will be a good source of CBD if you are concerned about this.
This question requires an answer that is unique to your individual need. The reason this is tricky is that it truly depends on what you’re using the products for, and how strong the product is. Most people consume between 10-50 mg of CBD per day in total. Be sure to look at the mg of your bottle of CBD to see how much 1 mL of your oil contains CBD. Make sure you read the label on your product to ensure a proper serving.
It is very common for people to purchase CBD online but with so much to choose from what do you look for. The first thing you need to check is whether the state you live in approves of CBD.
