Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive, naturally-occurring compound found in hemp plants. Unlike its cousin, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabidiol(THC), CBD has no hallucinogenic effects and is not psychoactive. CBD interacts with our receptors in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). our largest receptor system in the body, and can deliver unique health benefits to our bodies. We find that CBD is outperforming other compounds found in hemp because of its inherent anti-inflamatory properties as well as it’s interaction with the ECS. Since ECS receptors are found throughout the body, dosing and interaction within the system changes as the form of the product changes. For example, using a topical lotion works in a targeted area, while an oil-based tincture works across our entire ECS. LEarning about the ECS, determining what form of CBD to take, and discovering what dose works best for you are the most important ways to find the right CBD product for you.

WHAT CAN CBD HELP WITH?

As mentioned above, CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and is involved in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. In addition to those, our customers have raved about finding relief from acne, epilepsy, high blood pressure, substance abuse, degenerative disc disease, mood swings, and many more. As always we recommend starting a conversation with your physician before taking any CBD products, especially if you are currently taking any other medication.

WHAT IS FULL SPECTRUM AND BROAD SPECTRUM?

Whole plant extract, or Full Spectrum, contains all the properties of the hemp plant including flavonoids, natural fatty acids found in hemp, terpenes, and other cannabinoids (such as CBG, CBD, and trace amounts of THC). By keeping all components of the plant, cannabinoids and terpenes work together in perfect synergy. Similar to Full Spectrum, our Broad Spectrum products contain all the properties of the hemp plant but contain non-detectable amounts of THC. To achieve this, we put our products through additional processing to remove THC while preserving everything else. Our Broad Spectrum products remain a great choice for our customers who can’t have any traces of THC in their system, but still desire the same full plant synergy.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT I’M PUTING IN MY BODY?

To create our products, we use a method known as CO2 extraction. During CO2 extraction, we extract other compounds found withtin the plant, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. It is the most regularly-used extraction method of all the purest end product. Our third-party lab reports are on our website and can be accessed by scanning the QR code on your packaging or ask a Your CBD Store ECS Educator to view them in stores. THe third-party labs ISO17025 accredited, meaning they can reliably quantify cannabinoids-rich products.
