What is CBD?

About CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – a series of native receptors that promote homeostasis, or equilibrium. CBD is primarily found in the flowers and leaves of hemp plants. iCBD is extracted from the highest-quality and best-sourced hemp available.

There are over 100 different compounds, called cannabinoids, that are found in both hemp and marijuana. The two main ones are THC, which is psychoactive, and one primary ingredient, CBD, which is health-supporting. Hemp contains high levels of CBD (typically 1-20%), and low levels of THC (below .3%). Because of its barely traceable percentage of THC, hemp is non-psychoactive and is federally legal thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. In comparison, its cousin marijuana contains higher levels of THC and lower levels of CBD, making it intoxicating and therefore regulated federally as a Schedule 1 drug.

Although cannabinoids may sound like a complicated new term and concept, similar compounds can be found in everyday food and ingredients like chocolate, rosemary, black pepper, and other herbs. These plant-derived compounds include antioxidants and provide incredible benefits, just like CBD.

Full Spectrum
Full spectrum is similar to broad spectrum, except THC has not been removed. This is why broad spectrum CBD is the recommended choice for any individuals who cannot have trace amounts of THC in their system, whether for medical, personal or legal reasons. All iCBD full spectrum products meet the compliant level of THC (under 0.3% THC).

Entourage Effect
Due to the presence of additional plant compounds and cannabinoids, broad spectrum extracts may contain increased attributes over CBD isolate powder due to an entourage effect, or synergistic combination of cannabinoids and plant compounds. This magnifies the CBD vs. using CBD isolate alone. Because of this, broad spectrum extract costs more than CBD isolate, which is why broad spectrum products typically have a higher retail value.

Consistency is key for best results. We recommend building a routine and sticking to it for at least 4-6 weeks.


Does CBD get me high?
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. In other words, it doesn’t get you high.

A clear head
CBD should not undermine your focus or cognitive abilities. However, individuals may respond differently so consult a physician with any concerns of using CBD.

It's legal. All our products, which are extracted from the highest-quality hemp, conform to available state and federal laws and are consistent with industry standards in the United States. The US Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill which removed hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC) from Schedule I controlled substances and making it an ordinary agricultural commodity. However, CBD can not be sold in Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
