What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, abbreviated "CBD", is one of approximately 115 phytocannabinoids naturally occurring in hemp (cannabis) plants.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a diverse group of chemical compounds naturally found in the human body (endo-cannabinoids) and also in cannabis plants (phyto-cannabinoids).
How do cannabinoids work?
Cannabinoids interact with receptors of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the body to restore a normal state of healthy balance.
Is CBD psychoactive?
No, CBD present in all strains of hemp is not a psychoactive compound. CBD will not get you high (unless it contains THC). A good quality tested CBD product that is THC-free should not cause you to fail a drug test.
What is THC?
Delta-9 THC is largely responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. THC can build up in the body and can result in failed drug tests over time.

Dr. Bland states that the research shows that out of 44 terpenes found in hemp there are 6 major players to look for: beta-caryophyllene, alpha & beta-pinene, beta-myrcene, limonene, and alpha-humulene. These six major terpenes found in hemp oil each have a strong physiological effects that relate to the well known clinical applications for CBD. The other 38 terpenes that have been identified in hemp oil show considerable variation from sample to sample and therefore do not appear to be the major contributors to reproducible influence on the entourage effect in hemp.
