Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating compound of the hemp plant. CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and give the plant it’s therapeutic profile.
Cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.) are the chemical compounds found in the cannabis flower that can affect the human body. They work by imitating the naturally occurring “endocannabinoids” that our body produces that affect nerve, brain, and immune cell activity.
CBD is different from THC in the fact that it does not produce the “euphoric” effects associated with THC.
To date, there is no evidence of any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
CBD exhibits no effects on humans indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.
Yes, in all 50 states, as long as it’s derived from the Hemp plant, not marijuana, and contains less than 0.03% THC.
Marijuana generally refers to the Cannabis sativa plant that has a high concentration of THC, the compound that makes you high. CBD is derived from the Hemp plant, that is considered “industrial” under current regulations, and does not contain more than 0.03 percent THC, and is associated with medicinal use.
Simply put, Full Spectrum CBD contains all the beneficial compounds in the Hemp plant, including up to 0.3% THC. CBD isolate is derived from the refining process and removes all but single-molecule CBD. Most research indicates that CBD isolate has the least beneficial benefit for its users. Broad Spectrum CBD is the best of both worlds. It contains all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other molecules that complement each other producing the “entourage effect” that is most beneficial for the user. It provides all the benefits of Full Spectrum CBD, but with no THC. Royal Earth products are Broad Spectrum CBD products.
Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question. It is recommended, however, to start low and go slow. Try taking a few small doses over the course of the day instead of one big dose. Continue this for a few days, observe the desired effects, and adjust accordingly, if necessary.
