CBD FAQ

 

+ WHAT IS CBD?

  • CBD is short for cannabidiol – a cannabinoid found in hemp and marijuana
  • CBD is non-psychoactive – it won’t give you a traditional high like its cousin THC, found at greater levels in marijuana
  • CBD’s potential effects include: alertness (small doses), sedateness, anti-inflammation, anti-anxiety, antioxidant, anti-nausea as well as a host of other benefits

+ CAN YOU GET HIGH FROM CBD?

  • No, not in the traditional sense
  • CBD is non-psychoactive
  • CBD does impact how you feel and can act as an anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, or anti-anxiety agent
  • CBD can have a relaxing effect, users may feel a change in mood

+ WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD DERIVED FROM HEMP AND CBD DERIVED FROM MARIJUANA?

  • CBD is present in both hemp and marijuana – and is chemically identical
  • Hemp can legally contain no more than 0.3% THC, which means that CBD products derived from hemp will contain minute levels of THC, and often contain zero of THC.
  • CBD products derived from marijuana and sold in state-controlled dispensaries (where legal) can have varying levels of THC in addition to CBD
  • All CBD used in Docklight Brands’ products is derived from hemp and
  • contain 0% THC

+ IS CBD THE SAME AS HEMP OIL?

  • Sometimes, but not always
  • Hemp extract is derived from hemp plants and contains multiple cannabinoids, including CBD, as well as terpenes (natural compounds responsible for the scent of cannabis plants and their botanical relatives*)
  • There is also a product called “hemp seed oil” which is a highly nutritious food product made from pressing hemp seeds, and has zero CBD
    • Docklight products use Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract meaning that our CBD extract contains many other cannabinoids the hemp plant provides, but no THC
  • *Fun bonus fact – terpenes are also found in hops, which give beer its signature smell. Next time you crack open an IPA, inhale the scent and enjoy those terpenes.
