CBD BASICS

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid compound found in cannabis plants. Unlike another well-known phytocannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is a nonintoxicant compound.

What are some of CBD’s benefits? 

Studies show CBD can support homeostasis, promote relaxation and accelerate recovery.

You can also learn more about CBD at The Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research and Project CBD.

NOTE: Any medical claims made regarding CBD have not been evaluated nor approved by the FDA. Buenas Vibras CBD products are not designed to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

How is CBD made?

CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, sometimes through using a liquid solvent or CO2. Extracted CBD can then be used to create capsules, topicals, tinctures and many other products.

What’s the difference between THC and CBD?

THC and CBD are both naturally occurring phytocannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. While both have medical uses, THC is considered an intoxicant and highly regulated or illegal in many states. CBD, on the other hand, is nonintoxicating. The cannabis plant produces thousands of various phytocannabinoids and terpenoids, but THC and CBD are the most well-researched and discussed. 

What’s the difference between marijuana and hemp?

While both hemp and marijuana are considered varieties of the cannabis plant, the primary differentiator between the two is their chemical composition. Both hemp and marijuana can produce CBD and THC, but THC varies greatly according to variety. Hemp is cannabis containing 0.3% or less of THC.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

Each of our cells has an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is comprised of cannabinoid receptors, cannabinoid signaling molecules and enzymes that control signaling. It is a large receptor system that influences many of our major body systems, and when engaged, helps to keep them running smoothly.

Our bodies create their own cannabinoids – called endocannabinoids – that activate the ECS and help reduce stress, pain and other health issues. If we’re sick, in pain or stressed out, our endocannabinoids become low – and that’s where CBD supplements come in. CBD supplements support our bodies creation of its own endocannabinoids, allowing us to find relief and rebalance.

What is broad-spectrum CBD?

Broad-spectrum CBD (in contrast to CBD isolate) contains a multitude of other naturally occurring phytocannabinoids beyond CBD, which work synergistically to help us find relief and balance.

What is CBD isolate?

CBD isolate is exactly what it sounds like: just pure cannabidiol, minus other cannabinoids, terpenes or flavonoids.

 

 

 

USING CBD

How does CBD work?

Whether you ingest, inhale or apply CBD topically, the compound finds its way into your body’s endocannabinoid system. When our bodies are stressed, our cells produce excess amounts of the enzyme FAAH. FAAH degrades our endocannabinoids before they can reach their receptors and induce positive physiological changes. CBD is one of the few compounds that can degrade FAAH, allowing our body’s endocannabinoids to perform effectively and provide relief.

What’s the best way to consume CBD?

CBD consumption is up to the individual’s preference. These days, you’ll find CBD in drops, capsules, balms and even food or drinks. Try a few products to determine what works best for you. Many people choose to stack supplements together – like capsules and drops – to maximize benefits.

COMMON CONCERNS 

Is CBD legal?

Currently, 47 of the 50 U.S. states, as well as the District of Columbia, have legalized the sale and use of CBD products. Idaho, Iowa and South Dakota are the only states where marijuana-derived CBD is illegal. If you live in a state where CBD is legal, you can purchase products online directly from Bōdee Organics. When in doubt, it is always a good idea to review the current laws in your state regarding the sale or use of any CBD product.

Will CBD interact with other medications I’m taking?

Please consult your physician before taking dietary supplements that contain CBD.

Is it possible to overdose on CBD?

CBD is nontoxic. There are no known reports of fatal CBD overdoses.

Does CBD have any side effects?

Please consult your physician before taking dietary supplements that contain CBD.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

Conventional drug tests in the United States test for THC, not CBD. Bōdee Organics CBD products are formulated and tested to ensure less than 0.3% THC – not enough to trigger a positive test.

Can I travel with CBD?

According to the Transportation Security Administration website: “Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA. (See the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334.)” Because our products contain less than 0.3% of THC, Bōdee Organics products are allowed on a plane.
