Cannabinoids are naturally found in the industrial hemp plant. The most abundant one found in the hemp plant may promote and support the nutritional health of aging bodies. Source: US Government patent on Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants #6,630,507. Cannabinoids interact with our Endocannabinoid System, which consists of a series of receptors located in the brain, central nervous system, and many other areas. The ECS helps promote/regulate various important biological processes. Our bodies produce some cannabinoids (like anandamide) on their own.
Industrial hemp is rich in non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids. Marijuana is just the opposite; its top cannabinoid causes a “high.” Strains of industrial hemp are grown legally in dozens of countries worldwide and some US states. Industrial hemp is sold in all US states.
CBD hemp oil is extracted from the stalks and seeds of the industrial hemp plant. It is a natural substance that contains high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD hemp oil has become an increasingly popular product and is sold in the form of capsules, drops, edible infusions, and more.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of the many cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant. A cannabinoid is a chemical compound that reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in cells. Cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body and are a part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for keeping the body in homeostasis, among other things.

We get asked this question quite often…and the answer is (drum roll) there is not a “correct” dosage! If we have chatted on the phone, we tell our customers, you will find your “sweet spot” with what dosage works for you.
Just as over the counter and prescription medications have various milligrams, so does CBD. What works for your friend, may not work for you! But as a general guideline, more is not always better when beginning CBD. If you search CBD dosage on the internet, it is confusing at best.
The best way to find your “sweet spot”, no matter the milligrams of CBD, is to start with ¼ dropper. After a few days, increase that to ½ dropper per day. Some people take half in the morning and half in the evening. If ½ dropper per day is not relieving your ailment, perhaps increase by another ¼ dropper. At that point, it is best to order a higher milligram once your finish the bottle.
THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and about 80 other chemicals are all in a class of compounds known as cannabinoids, found in abundance in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are responsible for many of the effects of cannabis consumption and have important therapeutic benefits.
Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol or (THC) is a psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for many of the effects experienced by the cannabis user.
- Mild to moderate pain relief, relaxation, insomnia and appetite stimulation.
- THC has been demonstrated to have anti-depressant effects.
- The majority of strains range from 12-21% THC with very potent and carefully prepared strains reaching even higher.
- Average THC potency is about 16-17% in Northern CA.
- Recent research that suggests patients with a pre-disposition to schizophrenia and anxiety disorders should avoid high-THC cannabis.
Cannabidiol or (CBD) occurs in many strains, at low levels, 4% CBD) include Sour Tsunami, Harlequin and Cannatonic.
- It can provide relief for chronic pain due to muscle spasticity, convulsions and
inflammation. Offering relief for patients with MS, Fibromyalgia and Epilepsy.
- Some researchers feel it provides effective relief from anxiety-related disorders.
- CBD has also been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth when injected into breast and brain tumors in combination with THC.
Cannabinol or (CBN) is an oxidative degradation product of THC. It may result from improper storage or curing and extensive processing, such as when making concentrates. It is usually formed when THC is exposed to UV light and oxygen over time.
- CBN has some psychoactive properties, about 10% of the strength of THC.
- CBN is thought by researchers to enhance the dizziness and disorientation users of cannabis may experience.
- It may cause feelings of grogginess and has been shown to reduce heart rate.
Cannabichromene or (CBC) is a rare, non-psychoactive cannabinoid, usually found at low levels (
- Research conducted has shown CBC has anti-depressant effects, 10x those of CBD.
- CBC has also been shown to improve the pain-relieving effects of THC.
- Studies have demonstrated that CBC has sedative effects, promoting relaxation.
Cannabigerol or (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. It is commonly found in cannabis. CBG-acid is the precursor to both THC-acid and CBD-acid in the plant usually found at low levels (
- Researchers have demonstrated both pain relieving and inflammation reducing effects.
- CBG reduces intraocular pressure, associated with glaucoma.
- CBG has been shown to have antibiotic properties and to inhibit platelet aggregation, which slows the rate of blood clotting.
