What are the possible side effects of CBD?

Some individuals have reported “altered” states of mind, light-headedness, imbalance and drowsiness at varying serving amounts… and at very high amounts, some users have reported gastrointestinal (GI) upset. It is not clear whether these effects are due to placebo, the CBD or possibly other plant compounds. People who are concerned about drowsiness or other effects can take it in the evening or before bed. We created a daily tracker that can be used to help you “Find Your Balance.”

What should I do if I use a lot of CBD but it’s not working?

With CBD, it’s possible that more is not always more! Some research suggests that therapeutic effects may actually be lessened by using too much and/or too often. When CBD is used for notable effects and the effects are no longer appreciated at a given serving amount, it may be beneficial to cease use for 2-3 days. This is typically enough time for the body to reset and for any notable effects to return.You can track the amounts you're taking with our CBD Usage Tracker.We cannot provide individualized usage guidelines. Please consult with your trusted medical professional.

CBD Isolate Defined

Science can “isolate” CBD (cannabidiol) from the rest of the compounds found in hemp plants. Research is scant but suggests that a more complete “full-spectrum” plant extract—which includes all of its cannabinoids and full terpene profile—is more beneficial.

CBD (Cannabidiol) Defined

One of over 100 identified cannabinoids, CBD (cannabidiol) is renowned for its analgesic properties and ability to counteract the intoxicating, euphorigenic effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Are the effects of CBN cumulative?

CBN is metabolized (processed by the body) in a manner similar to tetrahydrocannabinol; however, research shows that it is metabolized less extensively and more slowly.

Will my body build a tolerance to CBD or CBN?

With cannabinoids, more is not always more. Research suggests that the effects can lessen when using too much and/or too often. For example, when CBD is used for notable effects and the effects are no longer appreciated, it may be beneficial to cease use for two or three days. This is typically enough time for the body to reset and any notable effects to return.

Will CBD make me drowsy?

Some users have reported drowsiness. For some, this is not perceived as a negative effect, and they prefer to consume CBD in the evening at home or before bed. If an altered state or drowsiness is experienced, it’s important to avoid driving, operating heavy machinery or using sharp or other dangerous tools. If you feel you have an adverse experience, stop using immediately, seek medical attention if warranted and consult with a trusted medical professional.

Will CBD get me high?

Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (cannabidiol) is non-intoxicating and non-euphorigenic. Hemp-derived CBD extract contains only trace amounts of THC, so tinctures derived from it are not likely to produce the associated effects. An average human can tolerate 20 mg per kilogram of body weight on a daily basis without experiencing negative effects. CBD is known to be alerting and energizing at very small amounts (1-2.5 mg) and known to cause drowsiness at extremely high amounts (100 mg to 1 g). That said, some individuals have reported “altered” states of mind, light-headedness, imbalance and drowsiness at varying serving amounts… and at very...

Micro-Dosing Defined

The widely used term “micro-dosing” refers to the practice of consuming small amounts of CBD (or another cannabinoid) at a time, often at increased frequency throughout the day. A “micro” amount typically refers to a serving size ranging from a fraction to 2.5 mg of CBD. Since less is typically more with CBD, users can benefit from taking smaller amounts more often as opposed to a large amount all at once. Via CBD micro-dosing, a constant amount of CBD remains in the body throughout the day instead of being metabolized and eliminated just a few hours after use.

What do whole-plant, full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and isolate mean?

CBD isolate is CBD separated from the plant’s other compounds. “Whole-plant CBD”—also called full-spectrum CBD—is CBD extract that contains the source plant’s other cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes. Similarly, broad-spectrum CBD contains most of the original plants material but not everything. In the case of hemp-derived CBD, broad-spectrum generally refers to products that are free of THC. Our position reflects what research suggests: Whole-plant extracts are more beneficial because of the entourage effect. Based on the idea that the effectiveness of CBD is enhanced by the “entourage effect,” our full-spectrum and broad-spectrum hemp-derived CBD products contain most or all of the...

Why should I take CBD?

Have you thought, What will CBD actually do for me? How do I know if CBD is working?

How does CBD work?

To understand CBD, we always start by talking about the endocannabinoid system or “ECS.” The ECS is a complex system in the human body that is understood to modulate all physiological processes throughout the brain and body, including the management of appetite, pain, sleep and mood. The purpose of this system is whole-body homeostasis (or balance), the optimal state for maintaining health and natural healing. Cannabinoids like CBD interact with the ECS by binding directly or indirectly to ECS receptors and acting like chemical messengers to turn on or turn off physiologic signaling in the body. Whole-body homeostasis means the...
