Cannabidiol 101

If you’re not familiar with what CBD is, don’t worry! We’ll give you the rundown! CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound that comes from hemp plants. It is a naturally occurring substance that CBD users have reported many benefits from.

Although THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is born from the same plant species, CBD does not have any of the psychoactive effects. In other words, our hemp-based CBD does NOT make you high when ingested! Cannabis plants are known for their two main compounds: THC & CBD. The more commonly known compound THC is responsible for the psychoactive effects, otherwise known as the “high.” Products that are purely CBD will not give you a mind altering feeling. You can take it at any time night or day– cool, right!?

If you still feel a little unsure, let’s dig a little deeper. If you’ve begun to look into CBD products to try, you may be familiar with the terms “full spectrum” and “isolate”. Here’s the difference. Within the cannabis plant, there are various different compounds known as “cannabinoids”. Among this array of cannabinoids is CBD. So, when a CBD product is labeled as “full spectrum”, it means that the extract contains all of the compounds naturally occurring in the plant such as cannabinoids, terpenes, and herbaceous flavored oils. As for products, such as ours, that use CBD isolate, it means that the purest form of CBD is being used to not only insure that the other cannabinoids like THC don’t tag along, but also to insure our products have the most delicious flavors that Smokiez is known for.
