hemp CBD 101

What Is CBD?

Industrial hemp plants contain 113+ naturally occurring, active compounds called cannabinoids. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoids found in industrial hemp plants. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a cannabinoid found primarily in marijuana – CBD (cannabidiol) does not produce any intoxicating or “high” effects, meaning users can experience its benefits without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

understanding the difference

Full Spectrum vs. Broad Spectrum vs. CBD Isolate

Full Spectrum

 | <0.3% THC

Full Spectrum CBD products are created from hemp through a full plant extraction. They contain naturally occurring cannabinoids (includes <0.3% THC), plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and plant proteins of the original hemp source. These compounds work together, typically referred to as the “Entourage Effect,” multiplying the potential health benefits.

Includes ALL active hemp-derived cannabinoids

Broad Spectrum

 | 0% THC

Broad Spectrum CBD products are created by taking Full Spectrum extract and further processing it to remove trace amounts of THC. Broad Spectrum products contain an array of naturally occurring cannabinoids, plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and plant proteins of the original hemp source. Similar to Full Spectrum products, these compounds work together in what is known as the “Entourage Effect,” multiplying the potential health benefits.

Includes MOST active hemp-derived cannabinoids EXCEPT for THC

*May contain trace levels of THC (<0.05%)

CBD Isolate

 | 0% THC

CBD Isolate is created by removing all other molecules, except CBD, from the Full Spectrum extract, leaving the CBD in an anhydrous state. All that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD with 0% THC. This powder is applied into various CBD Isolate products such as oils, edibles, topicals and vapes.

Includes ONLY 99% + pure hemp-derived CBD


 | 0% THC

CBG (cannabigerol) is known as “the stem cell of the hemp plant.” It is generally found in levels of < 1% in most strains of hemp and is a precursor molecule for many cannabinoids such as CBD and THC. CBDistillery™ sources CBG from unique U.S. grown hemp strains which contain high levels of CBG. This high quality extract is used to create an incredibly effective propriety full spectrum blend.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors and their corresponding molecules (agonists) in the human body. The ECS is responsible for regulating and maintaining many key functions of the human body. When the ECS is in balance, one experiences homeostasis.
