What is CBD?
Short for cannabidoil, CBD is one of the many compounds found in hemp. CBD compounds interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system – a series of receptors that regulate pain, mood, immune system, memory, stress response
and other important functions.
What is the difference between cannabis (marijuana, pot, weed) and hemp?
CBD is one of over 100 known cannabinoids in plants. Derived from hemp plants, it contains little (or in BaseOne’s case) to no THC. Cannabis (marijuana) plants contain high levels of THC, which what causes the euphoric “high” when its used. Therefore, CBD does NOT cause a high.
Is CBD LEGAL?
CBD is federally legal if it comes from cannabis plants containing no more than .3% THC by dry weight, after passing of the Farm Bill in December 2018.
Benefits of Broad-Spectrum CBD
Broad-spectrum hemp oil is a natural product extracted from the hemp plant that contains dozens of cannabinoids, with the most abundant being CBD.
CBD makes up over 85% of the cannabinoid content in broad-spectrum hemp oil.
Broad-spectrum oil include a full complex mix of cannabinoids, nutrients, proteins, and healthy fats that come naturally from the hemp plant.
Broad-spectrum oil retains the natural terpenes from the source plant.
Broad-spectrum oil has had all of the THC removed by a chromatography process, while Full-Spectrum oil may still contain some of the THC molecules from the raw plant material.
Different Oil Types
(full plant profile including THC molecules)
(full plant profile but all THC is removed)
CBD Isolate + Terpenes
(isolate with terpenes reintroduced at formulation)
(only isolated CBD molecules)
Isolate is the purest form of the CBD compound, which is produced by singularly extracting CBD from its environment and isolating it from all other compounds. CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. Produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids. Isolate has zero THC.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full spectrum CBD the raw oil extracted from the hemp plant that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids. Full spectrum oil may contain some THC.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract, however, THC is completely removed. Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.
Terpenes are aromatic oils that give different cannabis varieties their distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. Each individual terpene is associated with unique effects. Some naturally promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others promote focus and acuity.
