What is CBD? 

CBD or cannabidiol is a hemp-derived compound with significant medical benefits. CBD acts on the body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is  present in all humans and vertebrates, made up of cells and nerve receptors throughout the brain and rest of the nervous system.

The endocannabinoid system plays a role in a host of homeostasis activities, including mood, the sleep/wake cycle, the HPA axis, inflammatory responses & immunomodulation, and more.

CBD vs. THC

The most commonly asked question is: Will I get high from CBD derived from hemp? The answer is “no.” Here’s why.

While there are at least 113 known cannabinoids produced by the hemp plant, cannabis is identified by its two active ingredients: THC and CBD. THC is the only molecule in the cannabis family with a psychoactive component. It’s the only one that will get you “high.” CBD, even at extremely high doses, will not make you feel “high.”

Section 7606 of the Farm Bill defines industrial hemp as cannabis plants with <0.3% THC. Ananda's products contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. To maintain compliance with all laws, Ananda's products are rigorously tested to ensure a level of <0.3% THC.

Frequently asked questions

What is CBD oil?


CBD oil is a liquid cannabis extract that contains virtually pure CBD. It’s commonly made from seeds of the hemp plant (CBD hemp oil) and the stem of industrial hemp.




Is CBD proven to have any medicinal benefits?


For years, most of the research supporting the benefits of CBD was done on laboratories and on animals. In recent years, several studies have been conducted on humans to assess the medicinal benefits of CBD. These studies are often complex as they need to evaluate the efficacy of CBD in certain conditions, it’s safety profile (Side effects), and appropriate doses. The pharmaceutical company GW Pharma has already obtained an FDA approval for the use of it’s CBD formulation to treat a rare form of epilepsy. Other studies are evaluating the benefits of CBD in treating several conditions such as anxiety, pain, sleep disorders and depression.




Can we rely on animal studies in accepting the benefits of CBD?


No. Animal studies are not sufficient to evaluate the benefits of CBD. When assessing the benefits of CBD, it is important to conduct randomized, placebo controlled human studies. These studies are needed to understand the true benefits and side effects of CBD.




Are all CBD products available in the market the same?


Absolutely not. Most CBD products available in the market are sold as either foods or food supplements. They lack the quality controls of FDA approved drugs and often they are not made in appropriately inspected and certified manufacturing plants.

Also, considering that most CBD products in the market are plant extracts, technically no two products can be the same. The hemp plant’s content of CBD can vary by region, weather conditions, soil conditions, and the type of plant. Also, the extraction process can yield varying results.




What do I look for when buying a CBD product?


Make sure you do your research when buying a CBD product, or rely on a reputable source for your CBD. Quality CBD products must be made under “Good Manufacturing Practices”. They also must be accompanied by an independent lab certification that demonstrate the CBD content and the content of any toxic compound. Finally, reputable manufacturers rely on easy to understand labels to help consumers understand the CBD content in their products.




What is the difference between the marijuana and hemp plants in terms of CBD content?


Marijuana and hemp are two different varieties of cannabis that come from the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa L). In general, CBD is found abundantly in both. The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD throughout (stem, buds, etc.), and practically zero traces of THC. However, it’s important to note that CBD is typically found in the seeds and stem of marijuana - not in the flowering buds (which is the part that people smoke). If a hemp plant contains more than 0.3% THC, it is then technically a “marijuana” plant. Most all CBD-based products come from the industrial hemp plant.




What are the side effects of using CBD oil?


The side effects of CBD are not fully known. It is clear though that vaping CBD can cause respiratory problems. Also, at high doses, studies have shown that oral CBD may lead to liver damage. It is important to inform your doctor if you are taking CBD regularly. It is also a good idea to add a liver function test to your next medical check-up especially if you are taking high doses of CBD.




Will CBD get me high?


No, CBD will not get you high. It's non-intoxicating. THC is the molecule that binds to receptors in our brain and is the one responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high; some research expresses its potential to prevent THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors (hence the reason why it’s often used to subdue the ‘paranoia’ effects of super-potent THC strains).




How do I take CBD?


Most CBD products are taken orally via oil drops that are placed under the tongue and held for 60 seconds before swallowing.




How does CBD work?


CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body (hence the seemingly many possible CBD uses).




Is CBD natural?


Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound. It is not synthetically made.




How is CBD isolated from the hemp plant?


CO2 extraction is the best method to extract pure CBD isolate, in which state it exists as a clear/white crystal. This method is preferred over other methods because it leaves practically zero traces of chemical contaminants in the end product. Alcohol extraction is another method, wherein a liquid such as ethanol, butane, or hexane is run through raw plant material to extract the CBD and then evaporated to leave only the active cannabinoid. This can be a dangerous method because it’s prone to leaving excess traces of the butane or hexane chemicals in the extract. Also, infusing vegetable oil (i.e. olive oil) is another effective way of extracting CBD. All you do is grind up the raw plant material, decarboxylate (heat) it, and let it sit in boiling (100-deg Celsius) oil for about 2 hours.




How do I know what serving of CBD to take?


This one is tricky because it, of course, depends on what you’re using the compound for, and also on how strong the product is. Most people consume between 10-50 mg of CBD per day total. (For reference, 1 mL of a potent oil might contain 50 mg of CBD. Make sure you read the label on your product to ensure a proper serving. You should always consult with a pharmacist or nutritionist if you have questions.




How do I know it’s safe to purchases CBD?


To ensure the legality of buying CBD products, you need to make sure the company you’re buying from is reputable and that the product was made from industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC content. While transporting marijuana across state lines (from legal to non-legal states) is against the law, transporting hemp and hemp-based products is safe. Remember, millions of people all over the US (and the globe) are using CBD products every day.




Will I flunk a drug test if I take CBD?


Many CBD products have a trace amounts of THC, <0.03%. Drug tests may detect this small amount of THC in your urine or blood.




How is CBD metabolized when consumed orally? Is it converted to another compound?


CBD is metabolized into an analogous compound, 7-hydroxy-CBD, by the liver. Some 6-OH-CBD may also be formed. But scientists know relatively little about the activity (or lack thereof) of these compounds.
