CBD vs. THC
CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the leaves, stalks and flower of industrial hemp or marijuana cannabis. It is just one of over a hundred different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. There is CBD both in the hemp and marijuana plants. CBD can be extracted from hemp or cannabis.
Hemp and cannabis come from the Cannabis sativa plant. Legal hemp products can/must contain 0.3% THC or less. THC is just one of many cannabinoids found in the plant.
Legally, the key difference between hemp and marijuana is the THC content. It’s the one that’s primarily responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis.
Our hemp based CBD products do not exceed the legal limit of .3% THC. Like most full spectrum CBD products, our full spectrum items contain up to .3% THC. Broad Spectrum (our Tropicana Mix) does NOT contain any THC.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is an extract from hemp, a commonly used term for strains of the cannabis sativa plant with very low levels of THC. Today, hemp is used in a wide range of products in the United States and globally. Hemp oil contains CBD, the non-psychoactive compounds of the cannabis plant, which has been around for thousands of years and has been used medicinally for centuries.
Full spectrum CBD contains high concentrations of CBD, as well as all other cannabinoids, terpenes, and trace amounts of THC (.3% or less) found in the cannabis plant.
Broad Spectrum does not contain any THC, but still has many benefits.
Where does the CBD come from?
The CBD comes from hemp and is sourced from licensed USA hemp farms. CBD is completely legal in all 50 states. The FDA considers hemp and hemp-derived extracts to be food-based products. As such, there are no legal restrictions on their importation, production, sale or consumption in the United States, as well as most of the industrialized world.
How does it get into the gummy?
It is infused into the gummies in a licensed CBD laboratory using a proprietary infusion technique designed to preserve the gummy flavors while providing the maximum amount of CBD possible per gummy.
How many should I take?
Everyone's body is different and we could never assume to know how much CBD you "should" take. A common misconception is that CBD will make you feel differently immediately after you ingest it. Onset is usually 15-60 minutes and benefits usually last for up to 6 hours. Do your own research, and remember that no two bodies are the same.
