The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is found in all mammals and many other families of animals. While it is still being studied, we do know that it has an effect on several major processes, like appetite, sleep, mood, and memory.
There are three components to the endocannabinoid system: receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids, which all function whether someone uses CBD or not. The ECS is responsible for maintaining and regulating homeostasis within the body through CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are highly concentrated in your central nervous system (brain/spinal cord) and CB2 receptors are more highly concentrated in your peripheral nervous and immune systems.

No, it does not. CBD is non-psychoactive, unlike THC. The CBD in our bars is full-spectrum, meaning that along with CBD, it contains other cannabinoids and terpenes including THC. However, the levels of THC are < 0.3% so you will not feel any psychoactive effects from eating one of our bars.
CBD on its own will not show up on a drug test. CBD products that contain full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD can contain very small amounts (<0.3%) of THC. Our hemp extract is full-spectrum CBD. Thus, while it is not likely this would cause a failed drug test, there is a chance it could show up on the test, depending on how much CBD is consumed.
When you see a CBD product, there are three different kinds of CBD this could be referring to.
- Full-spectrum CBD: These products contain all parts of the cannabis plant. This includes CBD, terpenes, flavonoids, and <0.3% THC.
- Broad-spectrum CBD: Similar to the full-spectrum variety, broad-spectrum CBD includes most parts of the cannabis plant. The main difference is that with broad-spectrum CBD, you will only find trace amounts of THC.
- CBD isolate: This is the purest form of CBD. It contains only CBD, without any THC or other cannabinoids
There is evidence to suggest that full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD are more effective than CBD isolate on its own due to the interaction between the different parts of the cannabis plant. This is known as the Entourage Effect.
