CBD FAQs

What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a chemical found in the cannabis sativa plant.

What are the benefits of CBD?

It is thought that CBD works with our endocannabinoid system which is responsible for sleep, mood, appetite and immunity while supporting balance within the body.

CBD is helpful for many thing but is commonly used relief from pain, regulating Sleep  and managing Stress. 

Beauty cosmetics containing CBD is a growing trend. It’s the CBD’s anti-oxidant and  anti-inflammatory properties help combat redness, acne and excess oil production

Can CBD cause me to feel intoxicated?

No, THC is the ingredient in cannabis that makes you feel intoxicated. Pharma Hemp CBS has < 0.2% THC and so doesnt have that effect on you.

How does CBD work?

Cannabinoid receptors in our body contain endocannabinoids which are similar to the molecules found in the plant resulting in the body recognising and absorbing them more easily.

What are Cannabinoids?.

There is close to 1250 unique chemical compounds identified in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavors and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids.

There are over 144 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis.

What is CBD oil?

CBD hemp oil is extracted from industrial hemp biomass. CBD oil is a cannabis oil that contains significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD). The supercritical CO2 extraction process also preserves all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients, and contains only trace amounts of THC (below 0.2%).

 

What is Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery, is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems and organs. Consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.In other words, it is a »command and control« set of biochemical communication regulatory mechanisms dealing with cannabinoid-like substances (endocannabinoids) produced naturally by the human body in general and the brain in particular, where receptors are concentrated in areas associated with thinking, memory, coordination, pleasure and time perception. The ECS is one of the more important biological control systems, which help regulate major bodily functions

Will I test positive if I use Pharmahemp CBD oil drops?

The THC concentrations in hemp oil are nowhere near enough to have any effect on you: industrial hemp plants (Cannabis sativa L.) generally contain only a trace amounts of the THC that marijuana plants contain. THC is the cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests. These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complicated name of ‘11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH)’. If initial tests find that you have more than 50 Nanograms (ng) of these substances in your urine, a Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test is carried out to confirm the result. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and is not sensitive to other cannabinoids including CBD.

 Why are some drops oil Olive Oil & some in Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil has a slightly more bitter taste, so its simply 

What is CO2 extraction?

CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) to extract phytochemicals (such as CBD, CBG, or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most expensive extraction method and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method
