FAQ

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol. CBD is found in nature in hemp plants and is sometimes referred to as hemp extract.. Hemp contains a high percentage of CBD and only small amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol(THC). THC is the most common cannabidiol. THC is well known as a recreational product for producing intoxicating and psychoactive behaviors. CBD, on the other hand is not associated with these negative physical effects but instead helps promote calmness and help restore balance within the body. As an organic product, CBC is a more natural and safer option than man made medications. In the history of hemp, stretching thousands of years there has never been a death recorded due to its use. Although CBD is proven to not have adverse effects, you should consult a medical professional if you have concerns or any negative side effects.

WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a group of receptors found throughout the human body. These receptors that make up the ECS are part of the Central Nervous System (CNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) and Immune System. These systems of the human body include the spinal cord and brain and connect to the rest of the body. The fact that there are so many of these receptors throughout the entire human body is why CBD can be used in so many ways and has proven to be so effective.

WHAT IS A CANNABINOID?

Cannabinoids are natural molecules produced by cannabis and hemp. They activate the body’s central nervous system receptors CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain, whereas CB2 receptors are found all through the rest of the body. Since CBD does not activate the receptors in the brain it is not psychoactive. There are over 100 known cannabinoids. Many of these cannabinoids interact differently with various receptors and produce varying results. *Earths Depot recommends doing more research on this subject as we cannot make medical claims.

HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?

The amount of CBD you should take is not a one size fits all answer. Factors going into making this decision include your body’s weight, metabolism, genetics among others. Because of these unique factors if you are using our CBD products for the first time we recommend a smaller amount at first and increase the amount later if you choose. CBD products do not always work immediately so do not take multiple doses in a short period of time when first using the product. Again, depending on the factors listed above some people will require larger servings to get the desired result.
