Cannabidiol (CBD). A major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40 percent of the cannabis plant's extract, with a wide scope of potential medical applications especially linked to the lack of psychoactivity and side effects.
Cannabinoids. Chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that interact with specific receptors in the brain and body.
Cannabis. Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family, which consists of three primary species: Cannabis sativa (Hemp), Cannabis indica (aka Marijuana), and Cannabis ruderalis.
CO2 Extraction. A high pressure/ low-temperature process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemicals from hemp. FDA labels CO2 safe for extraction.
Endocannabinoid System. A biological system that is responsible for regulating the balance between important systems in the body, including the central nervous system, skeletal system, cardiovascular system and more.
Entourage Effect. Extracts that contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils from the cannabis plant, work together to improve the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid.
Full Spectrum. Contains all other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, along with CBD. Including other elements, such as naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more. Nothing was taken out of what the plant grew.
Hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill defines hemp as Cannabis sativa L. and “any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers,” with no more than a 0.3 percent concentration of THC.
Isolate. CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.
Solventless or Solvent Free. Cell walls are "deconstructed" to open and extract 99% of what the plant has inside. No solvents are used in this process. Particles become nano-sized which increases surface area and attaches to your red blood cells, making it easy to take in and utilize by your endocannabinoid system.
Terpenes. Terpenes are the flavors and aromas that naturally occur in the essential oils in many plants.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The major phytocannabinoid known for its psychoactive properties within the cannabis plant.
Tincture. An extract that comes in liquid form, available in a range of strengths, that is generally taken orally but can also be used topically.
