What is the definition of “Broad-Spectrum CBD”?

Broad Spectrum CBD” refers to CBD that contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes naturally occurring in the hemp plant EXCEPT for THC. Broad-spectrum differs from Full spectrum in that Full Spectrum contains trace amounts of THC, versus Broad Spectrum which does not contain any THC. There are also CBD products made using CBD isolate, which is simply a single cannabinoid molecule that has been extracted from the hemp plant.

Why should I choose CBD instead of medical cannabis?

Medical cannabis, also known as marijuana, is known for its intoxicating and euphoric effects. The main distinction is that medical cannabis contains higher levels of THC, the cannabinoid that causes the psychoactive effect. Medical cannabis has a very real possibility of creating an intoxicating sensation when consuming too much. CBD, on the other hand, is not intoxicating because of the low levels of THC produced by the Hemp plant. Therefore, CBD does not cause the feeling people refer to as “high” and can be used while performing daily physical activities.

What is the difference between marijuana and hemp?

Marijuana and hemp are both strains of the cannabis plant. The marijuana plant contains high levels of THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Hemp also contains THC, but the levels are negligible so it does not cause a psychoactive high. Additionally, hemp is not categorized as a drug so long as the THC levels are below the .3% limit recently mandated by the Farm Bill Act of 2018. At The Wellest, we undergo an additional patented process that removes all levels of THC. All of our products are 100% THC free!

Hemp seed oil. What is it?

The production of hemp seed oil involves pressing the plant’s seeds (a similar process to producing other seed oils like sesame or corn oil). Unlike CBD oil, hemp seed oil does not contain cannabinoids.  Hemp seed oil has been sold at health food and grocery stores for decades because it is rich in fatty acids, and is used for cooking.
