What is marijuana?
Marijuana—which can also be called cannabis, weed, pot, or dope—refers to the dried flowers, leaves, stems, and seeds of the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant contains more than 100 compounds (or cannabinoids). These compounds include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is impairing or mind-altering, as well as other active compounds, such as cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is not impairing, meaning it does not cause a “high”.

Medical cannabis is legal in over half the U.S., but the problem with “marijuana” is its high THC content. While it may relieve your symptoms, the intoxication can make your work unsafe or affect productivity.
Fortunately, hemp-derived CBD contains no more than 0.3% THC, making it impossible to get even remotely high.
Still, some people are concerned about THC. In that case, our broad-spectrum CBD products are entirely THC-free, and we do that without diluting our oil just so third-party lab reports show it’s “THC-Free.”
But what really puts us ahead of other CBD companies in our industry is our extraction process. Our proprietary method allows us to naturally retain terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids using low heat, one of the main enemies as it burns off or degrades these crucial compounds.
Keeping these other plant compounds provides the best overall effects anytime you need them.
Ultimately, you get the therapeutic effects of cannabis without intoxication – and that’s a massive win in our book.

Is CBD a drug?
Generally speaking, CBD with high purity is not a drug, and CBD with THC concentration less than 0.3% cannot be detected by drug testing. However, many CBD products on the market may have excessive THC content due to non-standard requirements, which may be detected by drug testing.Source: Is CBD a drug?
What are the side effects of CBD
CBD can cause side effects such as dry mouth, diarrhea, decreased appetite, lethargy and fatigue. CBD can also interact with other drugs you are taking, such as blood thinners. Another cause of concern is the unreliability of the purity and dose of CBD in the product.Source: What are the side effects of CBD

Is it safe for a breastfeeding person to use marijuana?
Breastfeeding persons are encouraged to avoid using marijuana. The health effects of a breastfeeding person’s use of marijuana on her infant are not yet fully known, and the available data are limited and conflicting. However, we know that chemicals from marijuana can be passed to a baby through breast milk. In addition, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is stored in body fat and is slowly released over time, meaning that a baby could still be exposed even after a breastfeeding person stops using marijuana.
