Understanding_CBD_oil_101

At TerraVida, we’re committed to developing the best, finest products with organic hemp grown in Colorado that are safe and lab tested. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about how CBD oil can improve your health.  

What is CBD (Cannabidiol)? 

CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol and it is derived from the seed and stalk of cannabis plants. The natural botanical concentrate is not intoxicating and safe to consume.  

Will I get “high” when I use CBD products? 

CBD is a phytocannabinoid that has none of the psychoactive properties of marijuana, so you will not feel like you are “high” when you use our cannabidiol based products. The chemical THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive substance found in marijuana that will allow you to get into that type of mental state. Our products have a very low trace amount of THC (less than .3%) so you can take our products with confidence.  

How do you make CBD oil? 

First, we extract hemp oil from the stalks and stems of cannabis plants with a highly controlled process.  Next, we isolate CBD from the other cannabinoids inside hemp oil. We may add other all natural, non-toxic ingredients like peppermint oil or corn oil depending on the type of product. 

How does CBD work? 

The human body has millions of cannabinoid receptors, especially in your organs, brain and central nervous system. The body also naturally produces cannabinoids or endocannabinoids. When you take CBD it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system helps manage your body’s immune system, stress levels, ability to sleep and feel pain and much more. CBD can act to prevent your enzymes from breaking down your body’s endocannabinoids. 

How is CBD oil different from medical cannabis? 

Many people prefer CBD oil since it has low amounts of THC in the products. This allows them to experience the benefits of the products without the psycho-toxicity that is normally attributed to medical cannabis. You can also depend on our products being safe and very high quality.  

What are the benefits of using CBD oil? 

Several studies show that CBD oil may help relieve chronic pain, reduce anxiety, act as an anti-inflammatory, rejuvenate the skin and help your heart among other benefits. Overall, the natural oil can improve your health and overall well-being.    

How are hemp and marijuana different?  

Marijuana plants are short plants that can grow flowers. They usually have a higher concentration of THC and is only allowed for recreational or medical use in several states. Meanwhile hemp is a tall plant that resembles bamboo shoots. The cannabis plant doesn’t have any flowers and usually contains less than 0.3% of THC. The plant cannot get you high and it can be used to create a variety of products, including food and textiles. Hemp also has fewer state and government restrictions than marijuana.   

Are CBD oil products safe to use or have any side effects? 

Yes, CBD oil products are safe to consume. Our company only uses the finest of materials and ingredients to manufacture and develop CBD products. We test every one of our products to make sure they are effective and of the highest quality before it is distributed across the nation.  

Most people do not experience any side effects from using hemp and CBD oil based products, but everyone’s physical body reacts differently to supplements. If you do experience any adverse side effects,  we recommended that you immediately consult a physician. Of course you should also consult a medical professional before you decide to add any supplements like CBD oil to your daily diet.
