The CBD confusion is real, which is why we’re breaking it down, term by term,

to help you make a more informed choice about your own wellness and self care.

 

BIOAVAILABILITY

The degree and rate at which an administered substance is absorbed by the body's circulatory system, or bloodstream.

CANNABIS

The overarching genus name for hemp and marijuana plants.

CANNABINOID

A naturally occurring chemical compound that acts on cannabinoid receptors.

CBD

Short for Cannabidiol, it’s one of more than 100 naturally occurring phytocannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant.

It is also one of the most abundant and heavily researched cannabinoids, and does not produce any psychoactive or euphoric effects.

CBD ISOLATE

CBD Isolate is the crystalline powder form of CBD. In this form, all other plant matter—oils,

waxes, chlorophyll and other cannabinoids—are removed, leaving only pure CBD.

ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

Research has shown the Endocannabinoid System (EDS) to be a vast network of cell receptors throughout the human body,

including the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands and immune cells, that help regulate everything from appetite and pain to memory and mood.

The purpose of our EDS is to help our bodies reach homeostasis.

EXTRACTION

The process of separating one single substance, such as CBD, from another.

HEMP

A strain of Cannabis that yields higher amounts of CBD and lower amounts of THC.

PHYTOCANNABINOID

A type of cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant.

SUBLINGUAL

Dosing under the tongue, which provides quicker absorption into the bloodstream through the capillaries for faster results.

TERPENE

Aromatic, naturally-occurring hydrocarbons found in many plants. They are what give a plant its distinct scent and flavor.

THC

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a cannabinoid found in Cannabis that produces a psychoactive or euphoric effect.

TINCTURE

An extract of a plant dissolved in a carrier oil and dosed orally or sublingually.
