CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of over 100 identified cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD can act as a neurotransmitter and is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. People use CBD in different ways, and for different reasons. It is recommend that you research CBD using trusted and qualified 3rd-party sources to learn more about CBD and what uses it has.
CBD oil is a natural essential oil which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. It is used by people all over the world as a dietary supplement and for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They are responsible for most of the health benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids can mimic neurotransmitters that we call endocannabinoids, and endocannabinoids are already produced naturally by our bodies
CBD can act as a neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters help to regulate bodily systems at a cellular level. CBD has been shown to have effects on a wide array of systems in the human body, such as the immune system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the heart, liver, and kidneys, the epidermis and others. CBD is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
CBD oil is not considered to be a drug. It is considered to be a dietary supplement. CBD is used as a component in the drug known as Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizure disorders. CBD does not cause a high like marijuana.
If you are taking prescription medications, consult with a qualified medical professional. Studies have shown that CBD may affect the metabolism of certain classes of drugs, but effects have been shown to be minimal. Much more research needs to be done in this area.
Hemp seed oil is distinct from CBD oil. While CBD is produced by extracting the essential oils from the cannabis plant’s flowers, hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. Hemp oil is similar to other seed oils such as corn oil and sesame oil.
*Hemp oil does not contain cannabinoids such as CBD.
Hemp is a family of cannabis strains grown for food and fibers. CBD is a molecular compound found in the plant’s extracts.
The CBD in our products is extracted from a proprietary strain of hemp known as PCR hemp — or phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. This proprietary strain is richer in CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes than the basic hemp plant is.
CBD has been shown in numerous studies to be well tolerated in humans. It is non-toxic and non-addictive. There is no known incidence of illness caused by consumption of CBD oil. All of the products we sell undergo rigorous testing by their manufacturers and 3rd party labs to guarantee they are free of THC and any potential contaminants. You can find these lab results in our lab results section, listed by manufacturing company.
Full spectrum means that an oil or product contains all of the cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant naturally, rather than just CBD. Full spectrum products are associated with the “entourage effect” – this refers to the increased effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working together.
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, does not cause a high and is not considered to be a drug.
CBD can be used to promote a health state known as homeostasis, this is the body’s natural tendency to maintain a healthy balance in all its systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some to treat ailments such as seizure disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders and more.
Medical cannabis is a term for medical marijuana. Marijuana contains THC, which is a cannabinoid that causes a high. Medical cannabis can cause severe impairments which could limit your ability to work or operate equipment, including driving your vehicle. CBD is not psychotropic, meaning that it does not cause a high. It will not impair your ability to work, drive, operate heavy equipment, or undertake physical activities such as exercise and sports.
As with any medical treatment, you should consult with a qualified medical professional to determine if your condition is treatable with CBD. CBD oil is used by many people to treat a variety of conditions. However, it has not been approved by the FDA in the treatment of any conditions aside from particular seizure disorders. Nonetheless, there have been numerous studies which suggest that CBD may be an effective therapy for a wide range of health issues, and many U.S. states have approved the use of CBD to treat many of these ailments.
Some of the effects reported by CBD oil users include improved mood, reduced stress and anxiety, increased attention and focus, pain relief and others. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.

Yes. Rest assured that full spectrum CBD can be transported on a plane. Authorities are not concerned with hemp CBD oil. They are concerned with interstate trafficking of marijuana and other drugs. Also, for this reason, drug-sniffing dogs are not trained to detect hemp CBD oil.
Full spectrum CBD users report a wide range of benefits, including: improved mood, reduced anxiety and stress, reduced pain and more. These benefits are usually greater than the benefits provided by non-full spectrum products, such as those containing CBD isolate. All Joy Organics products and Extract Lab products with the exception of Extract Lab Isolates contain full spectrum CBD oil. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are what gives cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized by humans for millennia in the healing modality known as aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association (FDA) and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
CBD can be administered in a variety of ways. The list below shows some of the most effective delivery methods for getting CBD into your bloodstream.
A CBD tincture is a preparation made from CBD extract. It is used orally (swallowed) and sublingually (under the tongue). When used sublingually, CBD can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream via capillaries found in tissues in the mouth. When consumed orally it must pass through the digestive system, but it is also absorbed via the lining of the stomach.
CBD oil can have a wide variety of subtle effects on the human body. CBD is known to be a powerful anti-inflammatory and has been reported to reduce pain, swelling and stiffness. It has also been shown in research studies to improve circulation and help to regulate a variety of systems, including the immune system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the heart, liver, kidneys and others.
The products we carry have varying amounts of CBD, Please refer to the product label for exact concentrations of CBD in each product.
The ideal serving size of CBD for each person depends on a wide range of variables, including the reason it is being used, the method of administration age, weight, diet, exercise and so on. It also varies based on the product. Servings of 5 to 50 milligrams per day are commonly reported for health maintenance, mood enhancement and/or minor pain reduction. Higher servings, although not harmful, are not recommended unless being treated by a qualified medical provider to treat a particular disorder.
CBD can be taken multiple times each day, or at particular times of day, depending on the reason it is being used. CBD oil is also often administered upon onset of particular conditions such as pain and anxiety.*
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness.
The products we carry go through a series of rigorous testing by their manufacturers and by third-party labs to assure purity and concentrations of cannabinoids. This includes testing to be sure that these products are free of any potential contaminants.
No. CBD is not a drug.
We highly recommend either refrigerating CBD products or storing them in a cool place. Always keep CBD products in airtight containers and store them away from direct sunlight and heat to avoid degradation of certain compounds in the CBD oil.
Because of its ability to help the body maintain homeostasis, reduce inflammation and act as an antioxidant, CBD is often used as a health maintenance supplement.
*In some cases, as when using a vaporizer or sublingual tincture, users often report nearly immediate results. Most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take some time to be detectable — usually half an hour or more. Your results may vary.
The special PCR hemp used to produce the products we carry is grown in Colorado.
Yes, CBD is safe for pets. Most customers use our Dog Treats for dogs and our natural flavored tinctures for other pets. We do recommend that you consult with a veterinarian who is familiar with your pet and knowledgeable in the use of CBD oil in pet health.
Full spectrum CBD oil, such as that used in the products we carry, contains a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes as well as other beneficial compounds. Each of the compounds has particular effects on the human body. Because terpenes can affect how the body responds to cannabinoids, the combined effect is often greater than the sum of the individual effects. The overall effect produced is known as the entourage effect. Non-full spectrum products do not have the benefit of the entourage effect and are therefore not recommended.
