Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is the organic plant compound found in the cannabis plant. The cannabis plant has been used medicinally for thousands of years. CBD is the second most abundant phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis plant after THC. Unlike THC, CBD will not get you high.
CBD spectrums are used to define the compounds of the cannabis plant that remain during the CBD extraction process.
FULL SPECTRUM CBD: Full Spectrum (or “whole-plant”) products contain CBD as well as terpenesand other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, and trace amounts of THC. With all the cannabinoids and terpenes working together, you get what is called “the entourage effect.” Full Spectrum products are most popular.
Best For Individuals Who: - Have more severe conditions that CBD Broad Spectrum and CBD Isolate do not alleviat - Prefer a certain level of THC to CBD ratio
BROAD SPECTRUM CBD: Broad Spectrum CBD is a mix between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate. During the extraction process, compounds found in Full Spectrum CBD are preserved, while, like in CBD Isolate, the THC is completely removed.
Broad Spectrum, like Full Spectrum, contains an array of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes, but Broad Spectrum has ZERO THC.
Best For Individuals Who: - First-time users hesitant about THC - May be subject to drug testing - Have sensitivity to THC
CBD ISOLATE CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD. During the extraction process, all other compounds from the Cannabis plant are removed. The CBD is isolated from all other compounds, hence the name CBD Isolate.

The endocannabinoid system of the body contains the CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors are responsible for the therapeutic interactions with CBD. The interactions are distinct and promising for oxidative stress, and many human diseases are known to involve the immune system. Studies suggest these beneficial interactions are positively affecting individuals suffering from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, depression, and neuropathic pain.
YES! Our pets experience anxiety, just as humans do. Thunderstorms or fireworks cause many times pet anxiety. Our pets don't understand what is going on and perceive the loud noise as a threat that can manifest the feeling of anxiousness.
There is also evidence that the static electricity in the atmosphere during a storm is bothersome to some dogs. The static electricity builds up in the animal's coat and can create the feeling of electric shock.
Not only is there anecdotal evidence that CBD is helping pets with anxiety, but people are also giving pets CBD for pain, seizures, and appetite.
While there isn't much research conducted on pregnant women taking CBD and the outcomes for the child, many women are taking CBD to relieve morning sickness, pain, inflammation, anxiety, and sleep disturbance. If you are pregnant and interested in taking CBD during pregnancy, it is recommended that you have a conversation with your medical doctor before doing so.
