Frequently Asked Questions
“CBD” or Cannabidiol is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike its more famous cannabinoid cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely non-psychoactive. Don’t expect to get “high” off of this organic chemical. CBD is the natural therapeutic side of cannabis. With Hemp Derived CBD being legal in every state, you will be able to experience it for yourself! Studies and trials over the past forty years have found that cannabinoids show promise in the areas of:
- Stress Aid
Terpenes are compounds found in almost all living plants. Terpenes are responsible for giving plants their distinct odor and taste. These natural terpenes are known to have different therapeutic properties, which can help intensify the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids. For this reason, we have specially formulated our Daily Drop to have the benefits of the entourage effect with a mixture of CBD rich cannabinoids and terpenes.
No, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. This means you will not get high.
Hemp is a type of plant from the Cannabis sativa plant species. It’s one of the fastest-growing plants and contains a wide variety of properties including cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinoids, vitamins, nutrients, fatty acids, and more that can be incredibly beneficial to our health.
Hemp extract refers to the oil that’s derived from the hemp plant. The extract is used for a wide variety of wellness products including CBD for workout recovery assistance. For the best CBD oil for muscle recovery, TerpNutrition uses full spectrum CBD oil. Full spectrum CBD includes all the naturally occurring properties from the hemp plant so you get all the benefits of hemp including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in one product.
No, although they are both part of the cannabis family. Marijuana and hemp leaves look similar, but hemp produces very negligible THC with only .3% max, compared to medical marijuana which is typically 15% or higher. Hemp is also known to naturally yield higher CBD.
THC and CBD are both types of cannabinoids that derive from the cannabis plant. However, these cannabinoids have a different impact on your body. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, creates a “high” or intoxicated feeling with high doses. However, it does more than just provide psychological effects.
THC can be used to treat and prevent nausea and vomiting caused by cancer medications. It can also be used to increase the appetite in those experiencing medical conditions that make it difficult to remember to eat.
CBD, or cannabidiol, doesn’t have an intoxicating effect. While THC can be used for both medical and recreational use, CBD is used exclusively for medical and wellness products. Full spectrum CBD contains traces of THC up to 0.3%, but it will not get you high. In fact, when CBD binds with your body’s cannabinoid receptors it actually keeps the THC from activating those receptors. In fact, THC acts as a catalyst to help CBD and other cannabinoids work more efficiently.
High doses of CBD, such as those found in full spectrum CBD oil, create a relaxing experience. This is because CBD relaxes your mind, muscles, relieves pain, and reduces inflammation. It’s a similar sensation to taking a hot bath and it works wonders for your muscles after a hard workout.
Yes, since hemp is legal in the USA! You can feel confident that your package will arrive with no problems.
This is a very common question. Because there is only trace amount of THC in hemp derived CBD you will not test positive for marijuana.
*Depending on the drug test, since CBD is a cannabinoid you need to be cautious because some places will test for “overall cannabinoids” (ex: some military branches)
Currently there are multiple ways to consume CBD. The two most common ways of consuming CBD is orally (tinctures, gummies, candies, gel caps) or topical balms or oils. You may also vape or smoke CBD for quicker effects.
Hemp can be used for a variety of different purposes including healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothes, paper, rope, industrial building blocks, and accessories.
For thousands of years, full plant medicine treatments have been used to help people maintain a healthy and balanced life. Many studies say that the combination of all of the compounds within the medicinal plant work synergistically in order to help enhance the therapeutic effects. Studies say that when you isolate a compound or a cannabinoid such as CBD by itself, it can dampen the effects that the consumer is seeking.
Since the Entourage Effect has shown such high success, we wanted to specially formulate a full spectrum (full plant) CBD tincture in order to increase the efficiency of our product for MAXIMUM results, so that you can feel your best!
What sets us apart from other companies is that we use an FDA approved lab in order to create our TerpNutrition Daily Drops and Pain Cream. We believe that the Entourage Effect goes beyond just making sure that all the cannabinoids are in their natural state, we believe that natural terpenes are a massive driver for the full force of the entourage effect.
When someone takes CBD, the compound goes into the system and to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is made up of receptors throughout the body and brain.
The ECS, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing balance and health in the human body.
The ECS plays a very interesting and varied role within the body. At its most basic, the ECS is a huge network of cannabinoid receptors, which are spread throughout the body. The human ECS releases cannabinoids that interact with receptors found in virtually all of the tissues in our bodies.
You can also take in phyto-cannabinoids in addition to those compounds that your body produces to help boost this system. The role of the ECS is to bring balance to our bodies’ tissues and heart, as well as our digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems.
In short, it’s working to keep you in neutral. Neutral means different things in different areas of your body, which is possibly one of the very best things about the compound – it can have a different impact on different receptors in your body.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural remedy for a wide variety of ailments including anxiety, pain, and muscle recovery. CBD is the second most prevalent ingredient in the hemp plant and there are different variations of its extracts. Each extract has a different effect on the body, which makes it important for CBD users to know the difference between each one.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Full spectrum CBD oil refers to an oil containing all the naturally occurring properties of the hemp plant. These properties include cannabinoids, terpenes, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Each property provides different benefits, and full spectrum CBD oil offers all of them.
Because full spectrum CBD contains all of the properties of the hemp plant, it creates what scientists call the ‘entourage effect.’ This effect is a powerful CBD treatment that allows the product to work more efficiently than CBD isolate products. The components of the product work together, which ultimately has a greater impact on the body. This is especially beneficial for those using hemp oil for muscle recovery after a hard workout.
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
Broad spectrum CBD has the same benefits, including the benefit of the entourage effect, as full spectrum CBD. However, while full spectrum CBD contains less than 0.3% THC, broad spectrum CBD doesn’t contain any THC. This is beneficial if you want to use CBD oil for recovery after working out, but don’t want to risk using a product with trace amounts of THC.
CBD isolate is an isolated form of cannabidiol. The extract contains no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or other plant components. It’s cannabidiol in its purest form at 99% CBD.
