What is CBD?

CBD oil is a natural essential oil which is extracted from the flowers of the cannabis plant.
It has been proven by Scientists that it has a vast range of properties.

CBD oil contains a variety of active compounds such as:

  • Cannabinoids
  • Chlorophyll
  • Alkanes
  • Nitrogenous compounds
  • Amino acids
  • Sugars
  • Aldehydes
  • Alcoholsetones
  • Flavonoids
  • Glycosides
  • Vitamins
  • Pigments

It has been shown in research studies to be well-tolerated and non-toxic to humans.
CBD is extracted from low THC cannabis plants referred to as Hemp.

The Differences between HEMP and MARIJUANA

High in CBD

High in THC

Less than 0.3% THC

More than 0.3 THC (5-35%)

(no “high” feeling)

(produces a “high” feeling)

Legal in most countries

Illegal in most countries

Tall, long, sturdy stalks
with skinny leaves

Short and bushy, broad leaves
with thick, fragrant flowers

It’s really very simple:

  • Both Hemp and Marijuana come from the same plant species – Cannabis Sativa.
  • However each has unique properties that distinguish its use.
  • Hemp is a Cannabis plant with THC levels below 0.3%
    and is 100% legal in the US and in most countries around the world.
  • Marijuana is a Cannabis plants with THC levels above 0.3%.
    Usually around 5-35%.

Is CBD Legal?

Over the past few decades, there has been an explosion of research into the benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids.
A monumental breakthrough happened on December 20, 2018 when a new Farm Bill was signed and federally passed by president Trump that makes Hemp plant 100% legal.
To be totally clear:
Hemp (it is no longer called “industrial hemp”) and all of its constituent components (ie, cannabinoids, including CBD) are broadly lawful throughout the USA.

More specifically, the 2018 Farm Act defines “hemp” as:
“The plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

Full Spectrum CBD vs CBD Isolate

If you’ve done just a little bit of research you know there’s basically 2 kinds of CBD products.

Products made with
Full Spectrum CBD

Products made with
CBD Isolate

Products made with
Full Spectrum CBD

CBD Explained

It’s also called Full Spectrum CBD Extract or Whole-plant CBD extract or FECO that stands for Full Extract Cannabis Oil.

It includes all of the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and also includes all the other components that get extracted out of cannabis flowers in the process.
These other components are terpenes, waxes, healthy fatty acids and chlorophyll.
And you know what,… there are other components in the cannabis plant that get extracted in the process that we are not even aware of. But that’s a story for another time.

So when we say “full-spectrum”, we’re referring to a naturally extracted spectrum rather than a constructed spectrum.

Products made with
CBD Isolate

CBD Explained

CBD isolate is just CBD. It’s just cannabidiol molecule isolated or separated from other cannabis compounds in the plant.

CBD Explained

So the big question... What to choose?

Full Spectrum CBD or CBD Isolate?

There are studies that give scientific proof that Full Spectrum CBD that also includes low amounts of THC plus other cannabinoids, terpenes ect. produce what is known as an Entourage Effect.

The synergistic relationship between all of the cannabis components has been shown to increase the healing properties of each.

But when it comes to CBD isolate,… even though it’s fairly unlikely that you would fail a drug test or experience a form of “high” because of the low amounts of the THC in those Full Spectrum CBD products,… some people prefer to be on the safe side.

So now you have the information you need to decide… CBD Isolate vs Full Spectrum CBD.

Our suggestion is always Full Spectrum CBD.


Well, when it comes to health we don’t think we should hold back.
This is a natural medicine and it just doesn’t make any sense not to get the full benefit out of it.

Will THC in Full Spectrum CBD oil make me “High”?

Short answer: No.

If you take it slow and go with the recommended dosing!

Long answer: No.

If you’ve read this far, you know we are strong advocates of the Full Spectrum CBD oil and products.
Numerous studies as well as direct experience with our customers show significant difference of the Full Spectrum CBD compared to the CBD isolate.
However, the Full Spectrum CBD oil does contain the infamous THC. And therefore it’s possible that you’d actually feel the “high” if you take a dose that’s much higher than recommended.
But the good news is that even if that would happen to you or your loved ones, no one ever overdosed with cannabis. There’s not a single history record of anyone overdosing, ever.

CBD Explained

The Allowed THC content in CBD

Furthermore, the allowed THC content in the US is below 0.3%.

The allowed THC content in the European Union is below 0.2%.

Most of the Full Spectrum CBD products therefore contain less than 0.2% THC.

And the next point is ...


We recommend to all of our readers and customers to microdose.
That simply means instead of taking one big dose once a day, you take small amounts 3-5 times throughout the day.

This will make the amount far to small for you to feel anything that you don’t want to.

And it will also make CBD present in your body at approximately equal level at all times. And that’s really optimal for your body’s Endocannabinoid System and the recovery you are looking for.

CBD Oil Side Effects

There’s a few things to be addressed first!

  • It’s important you get your CBD from a reputable company. Preferably a company that is transparent about who is behind it, behind the brand, behind the website.

  • There are a ton of websites that look really good, but once you start exploring you can not find the real people behind it.

  • If you are making Cannabis extract yourself, it’s important you use ingredients that are safe and made (purified) for human consumption. Do not try to save money buying the cheapest ethanol and other ingredients.

Side effects of CBD oil that you might experience will probably be only minor if any at all.

The potential side effects of Hemp CBD oil may be:

  • Dry mouth
  • A small drop in blood pressure
  • Lightheadedness
  • Increased appetite
  • Drowsiness

Remember, CBD affects everyone differently. What might happen to one person might not happen to you.

If you experience any of the above symptoms, don’t panic! Simply lower your CDB dosage.
It’s important you start with a low dose and gradually build up.

How Does CBD Make You Feel?

The feel of CBD will not be anything like the “high” of THC. CBD is completely non-psychoactive.

Our customers report that CBD makes them feel more calm and relaxed.
Many even say that it helps even help you deal with daily life issues.

What Does CBD Do?

  • CBD works directly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
  • Discovered in 1992 by Raphael Mechoulam as well as NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) researchers William Devane and Dr. Lumir Hanus.
  • The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex network of special receptors
    and cannabis-like chemicals called cannabinoids that collaborate to bring balance to our body and our mind.
  • CBD helps to boost the endocannabinoid system if it has become depleted.

Is CBD Safe?

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)  conducted a review on the ‘Safety and side effects of cannabidiol’. Their verdict was that controlled administration is completely non-toxic and safe in both humans and animals with minimal side effects.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has also recognised CBD as being non-toxic and safe.

A lot of times CBD oil is referred to as Hemp oil.
And here is where you need to be careful!

When buying any CBD product (that goes for products containing Full Spectrum CBD or CBD isolate) and the label (or the seller) says it’s “Hemp Oil” you have to ask if it contains CBD or not!

Because when Hemp seeds are cold pressed into oil, that is also called Hemp oil. But that oil does not contain any CBD.

In this short video we explain exactly what you need to be aware of and careful with.

What Is CBD Exactly?

CBD is short for cannabidiol.
It is just one of more than 100 different molecules called cannabinoids
that are found in the cannabis plant.
They account for most of the health benefits of cannabis.

Cannabinoids found in plants are also called PHYTO-Cannabinoids.

Phytocannabinoids mimic compounds which we call ENDO-Cannabinoids that are produced naturally by all mammals.

Yes, our bodies make their own Cannabinoids.

ENDO or Endogenous means produced or synthesized within the organism.

CBD Explained



Cannabinoids produced by the human body.
Simply means cannabinoids that body makes as needed.



Cannabinoids produced by plants.



Cannabinoids artificially created in a lab.

Considering the superiority of “Nature’s Pharmacy” and “chemical design” and also considering these natural cannabinoids are super easy to get we strongly advise against synthetic cannabinoids.
There are also scientific results showing how Cannabinoids from cannabis are not only far superior compared to synthetic cannabinoids but how synthetic cannabinoids are even dangerous.

Use of synthetic cannabinoids has been associated with serious psychiatric and medical conditions and even death.

If you have a choice between a product that was perfected by nature and fits the system you have in your body perfectly and something created by a chemist – you know what you want to go with, right?

EndoCannabinoids and Their Function

Endocannabinoids, those produced naturally by our bodies, are signaling molecules.
They are also called neurotransmitters.
A more familiar type of neurotransmitter are Hormones.

A vast array of neurotransmitters are produced by our nervous system in response to various states of health and environmental factors.
They interact with receptors found in cells throughout our bodies.
Their job is to instruct a cell to adjust its activities.

The Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Endocannabinoid system is a central regulatory system we have in our bodies.
Is a system that is designed to keep YOU (yes, the whole you – your body and your mind) in HOMEOSTASIS.
That simply mean “in BALANCE”.

CBD Explained

We now understand that neurotransmitters work to adjust our cellular activity.
Let’s take a look at the role of cannabinoids in particular and their role in maintaining a state of balance, within the body.

The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) has two components:

  • The EndoCannabinoid Receptors (known as CB1 and CB2 receptors) found on the surface of cells throughout the body.
  • Second is the EndoCannabinoids themselves that interact with those receptors.

is that the endocannabinoid system regulates a wide array of bodily functions:
