What is CBD?
CBD is a naturally occurring compound
found in Hemp and Marijuana plants with a
rich history of therapeutic effects going
back thousands of years.
What benefits does CBD
* Neurological Inflammation, *
ReliefAnxiety and Stress Relief, *Pain
How does CBD work?
Humans have an Endocannabinoid System
(ECS) designed to fight neurological
inflammation and protect our body. The
purpose of the ECS is to maintain a healthy
biological balance within our body’s major
systems. However, our ECS does not always
function at optimal levels, especially as we
age. This can lead to difficulty regulating
a healthy mood, poor sleep, increased
inflammation and pain and an overall
reduction in immune health. This is where
CBD steps in, providing our bodies the
support we need by helping our ECS to
function more effectively.
How is CBD from hemp plants
different than CBD from marijuana plants?
Hemp and Marijuana are cousin plants,
but they are not the same.
from Marijuana plants contains a compound
called THC. THC causes the psychotropic
effect or "high feeling" when consumed. CBD
containing THC is not legal nationwide. CBD
from Hemp contains less than 0.3% THC and
does not cause the psychotropic effect. CBD
from Hemp plants is legal nationwide.
When did CBD from Hemp plants
In December 2018, the United States
Congress passed a farm bill that legalized
the production and sale of CBD from Hemp.
CBD containing THC from Marijuana has not
been legalized by the federal government.
Is all CBD from Hemp the
The short answer is no. Hemp oil from
Hemp seeds contains no CBD. Products
marketed as Hemp Oil typically do not
contain CBD unless CBD is specified as an
How can you determine whether
CBD products are high quality and safe?
Processing CBD from Hemp plants is an
expensive and complicated process. Here are
a few key things you should look for when
you buy CBD:
Tracked and Traced
from Seed to Sale. Are the raw
ingredients in the CBD tracked and traced
every step of the way from the farm to the
product you are buying? If not, you are
taking a risk that your CBD is not clean,
pure, effective and high quality.
Grown. Unless CBD is tracked and traced, it
is difficult to trust it is 100% US Grown.
Some manufacturers who claim their CBD is US
Grown will mix in CBD from foreign countries
such as China to lower their costs.
- Unless CBD is tracked and traced, it may
be tainted with toxic solvent residues,
pesticides, corn syrup, artificial flavors,
colors and/or other contaminants.
Is all CBD
all CBD is created equal. To produce high
quality CBD, not only is tracking and
tracing the raw ingredients from seed to
sale critical, but the process used to
produce CBD is very important! There are two
primary methods for processing CBD from hemp
Ethanol Extraction - This process requires
hemp plant material to be soaked in the
chemical ethanol, an alcohol, for a period
of time. Using this process, it is nearly
impossible to remove all of the ethanol from
finished CBD products. This can reduce the
potency and purity of ethanol processed CBD.
manufacturers use the ethanol process
because it is less expensive. The compromise
for consumers is that consuming ethanol
processed CBD creates the risk of chemical
impurities which decreases the potency and
purity of the CBD products.
Extraction - This more expensive and higher
quality process uses CO2 not chemicals to
extract and purify CBD from the hemp plant.
A primary advantage of the CO2 process is it
allows more control of the fine tuning
process for extracting pure CBD Isolate from
the hemp plant. The result is that a more
pure and potent CBD product can be created.
CO2 process uses a lot of electricity and is
therefore a more expensive process. This is
a big reason why so many processors use the
lower quality, lower cost ethanol process.
Is there such a thing as a Pharmaceutical
simple answer is yes, but the reality is
very few companies use high quality
Pharmaceutical grade equipment to process
CBD because it is more expensive to produce.
key question that can be asked to determine
whether or not CBD is Pharmaceutical grade
is to ask if it is Filter Reactor Processed.
Filter Reactors are cutting edge technology
and are very expensive. Filter Reactors are
currently one of the most effective ways to
achieve the most potent and pure CBD.
What is the
difference between CBD Isolate, Broad
Spectrum CBD and Full Spectrum CBD?
Isolate - 99.9% or higher pure CBD. Broad
Spectrum - contains CBD, terpenes,
additional cannabinoids, but no THC.
Spectrum - contains CBD, terpenes,
additional cannabinoids plus THC.
What form of CBD
is most effective?
researching hundreds of studies and papers
published on CBD, Dr. Prasad has determined
that CBD Isolate is more effective than
Broad or Full Spectrum CBD products.
Prasad has three primary reasons why he
believes CBD Isolate is the best.
Effectiveness - CBD Isolate is
scientifically proven to interact positively
with the Endocannabinoid System, as well as
other neurological receptors in our body
that regulate pain, mood and inflammation.
No other hemp compounds, cannabinoids or
terpenes have this scientific zvalidation.
Safety - CBD Isolate has been shown to be
safe at very high dosage levels in FDA
regulated studies. The FDA approved the CBD
epilepsy drug Epidiolex which has a safe
maximum recommended daily dosage level of
2,000 mg or more per day depending on a
person’s body weight. Broad and Full
Spectrum do not have this safety history.
Purity - By mixing in other cannabinoids,
terpenes, oils, etc, the risk for impurities
and dilution to CBD is increased.
What is the
"Entourage Effect" is the theory that there
is a synergistic effect created by combining
CBD with terpenes and cannabinoids such as
CBG, CBN and others.
Prasad is not aware of a single credible
study validating the "Entourage Effect."
Until a study has been conducted validating
this effect, Dr. Prasad’s conclusion is the
Entourage Effect is more marketing than
