Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, including THC and CBD. They interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps to regulate bodily functions such as mood, appetite, and sleep.

What does CBD oil contain?

CBD oil contains CBD (cannabidiol), which is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is typically extracted from hemp plants, which contain very low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

What are terpenes and flavonoids?

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, including the cannabis plant. They are responsible for the plant's scent and flavor and may have potential therapeutic benefits.

Flavonoids are a group of phytonutrients found in many fruits and vegetables, including the cannabis plant. They have antioxidant properties and may also have potential health benefits.

What is the difference between full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and isolate CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in the cannabis plant, including THC (but at a level of less than 0.3%).

Broad-spectrum CBD contains all of the compounds found in full-spectrum CBD, except for THC.

Isolate CBD is pure CBD and does not contain any other cannabinoids or compounds.

Is CBD safe to use?

CBD is generally considered safe, with few reported side effects. However, it can interact with certain medications, so it's important to talk to your healthcare provider before using CBD if you're taking any prescription drugs.

Can CBD be converted to THC?

CBD has not been shown to be a reliable source of energy. While some people report feeling more alert or focused after taking CBD, it is not typically used as a stimulant or energy booster.
