What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one among dozens of phytocannabinoids (phyto meaning made by plants) found in cannabis. CBD is non-intoxicating and has shown a wide range of potential benefits.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) helps the body maintain homeostasis, a healthy state of internal balance. It regulates key physiological processes such as inflammation, immunity, stress, mood, appetite, sleep, and cognition. The ECS consists of endocannabinoids (cannabinoids made by the body), cannabinoid receptors, and metabolic enzymes.
How does CBD work?
CBD supports healthy endocannabinoid system function by influencing the levels of endocannabinoids. It has also been shown to interact with other parts of the central nervous system, such as serotonin receptors.
Is CBD intoxicating?
Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that is found in Cannabis, CBD does not cause any mind-altering effects. In simpler terms, CBD will not make you high and should not contain detectable THC.
Is CBD safe?
Generally, CBD is considered a safe substance and has been recognized as having a “good safety profile” by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Does CBD have side effects?
Depending on the dose, CBD can cause minor side effects. In higher doses, dry mouth and drowsiness could be experienced. The likelihood of experiencing these issues is small, but it is best to speak with your healthcare professional about whether clinical CBD is right for you.
Does CBD interact with other medications?
It is best to speak with your healthcare professional about any potential interactions CBD may have with specific medications.
What is the difference between hemp and cannabis?
Cannabis comes in two main varieties: hemp and cannabis. Hemp plants are bred to contain high CBD levels and legally need to contain 0.3% or less of THC (the main psychoactive cannabinoid). This amount is not enough to cause intoxication, which is why hemp-derived CBD products are available throughout the U.S. In contrast, cannabis contains high THC but lower CBD concentrations. Corganics Clinical CBD contains non-detectable THC.
Where is Corganics hemp sourced from?
Corganics hemp-derived products come from non-GMO farms in the USA.
Which extraction process does Corganics use?
Corganics uses the carbon dioxide (CO2) method to extract CBD and other beneficial compounds from hemp. This method is considered the gold standard of CBD extraction because it’s safe, clean, and effective, leaving behind no solvents.
What type of CBD does Corganics products contain?
Corganics products are made with broad-spectrum hemp extract. Aside from CBD, this THC-free extract contains other cannabinoids such as CBN and CBG, terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and other natural hemp phytochemicals.
Do Corganics products contain THC?
No, all Corganics Clinical CBD products are made with broad-spectrum hemp extract. This extract is free of THC but maintains many of hemp’s other beneficial cannabinoids to maximize efficacy. Third party tests of Corganics products show non-detectable THC.
What is nanoemulsion technology?
Nanoemulsion technology is a method of breaking CBD oil molecules down into a microscopic size to greatly increase their bioavailability and absorption. Corganics utilizes this technology in the softgels to enhance CBD’s absorption, which provides better absorption than standard oil-based formulations.
Are Corganics products tested by a third-party lab?
