Will CBD make me feel high?
No, CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the Cannabis Sativa plant, meaning that it will not cause you to feel the “high” that is associated with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
What is the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD and THC are both naturally occurring cannabinoids in Cannabis Sativa. Both cannabinoids interact with our body’s receptors to create different effects. THC is a psychoactive component, or cannabinoid, that gives the “high,” whereas CBD is non-psychoactive and will not induce that feeling of a “high.”
How does CBD work and interact with the Endocannabinoid System?
CBD interacts with our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It supports our health through homeostasis, which means maintaining a stable internal environment within our bodies despite fluctuations in our external environments. Receptors for the ECS are found throughout the body in the major organs, connective tissues, glands and immune cells which bind with CBD to enhance bodily function.

How do I choose a CBD product?
How you choose a CBD product depends on the desired effect. We offer products that can be used orally, sublingually and topically.
Orally: When CBD products are taken orally, they must go through your digestive system before the CBD can enter your bloodstream, where it begins to interact with your endocannabinoid system. This method ensures the CBD will last in your system longer but may take 30 to 90 minutes to take into effect as well.
Sublingually: When CBD oil is put directly under the tongue, it bypasses the digestive system and enters the bloodstream directly. This enables a faster onset of effects, about five to 20 minutes.
Topically: A topical oil or cream is best for treating targeted areas to relieve pain of inflammation. Topical products can be massaged directly onto the skin and effects can last for several hours.
