Agricultural HempRefers to varieties of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant that contains less than 0.3% THC in the dry weight material, and is grown for industrial purposes.
Cannabis Sativa LA species of plant in the Cannabis genus; refers to both agricultural hemp and marijuana.
CBDShort for cannabidiol; a phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis; does not result in euphoria and has shown to have benefits on human and animal health.
CBD-AShort for cannabidiolic-acid; an acidic cannabinoid, the naturally occurring raw form of CBD that is produced directly in the plant.
AnandamideA derivative of arachidonic acid that occurs naturally in the brain (as well as some foods) and acts as a messenger molecule, playing roles in appetite, depression, memory, and fertility; one of the two known endocannabinoids.
2-AGAn ester formed from the arachidonic acid and glycerol that occurs naturally in the brain and is a CB1 receptor agonist; one of the two known endocannabinoids.
EndogenousSelf-made; originating from within an organism.
EndocannabinoidNaturally occurring cannabinoids in the human body.
PhytocannabinoidPlant-based cannabinoids found in species of cannabis.
Endocannabinoid SystemRefers to endocannabinoids, the enzymes that regulate their production and degradation, and their receptors.
CB1Cannabinoid receptor found primarily in the central nervous system (nerves in the brain and spinal cord).
CB2Cannabinoid receptor found primarily in the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord).
THCShort for tetrahydrocannabinol; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis shown to have some benefits on human and animal health, however, is responsible for intoxicating effects associated with marijuana use.
CBNShort for cannabinol; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis; it is produced when THC is metabolized and has little to no intoxicating effects.
CBGShort for cannabigerol; known as the “parent cannabinoid” and is the chemical precursor to THC and CBD.
CBCShort for cannabichromene; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis that has little to no intoxicating effects.
Entourage EffectRefers to the idea that biologically active compounds can have enhanced biological activity when administered in combination with otherwise inactive compounds as opposed to isolated active compounds administered alone.
Hemptourage EffectRefers to the “entourage effect” of compounds present in hemp-derived CBD oil to optimize health and wellness.
TerpeneA large and diverse class of strong smelling organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants and insects.
Fatty AcidLong hydrocarbon chain, with a carboxyl group (COOH) at the end; important part of the fat-soluble components of living cells (lipids).
Plant SterolCholesterol-like compounds that are naturally occurring in plants.
Vitamin EAlso known as alpha-tocopherol, a fat-soluble vitamin important for normal cell growth and function; found in vegetable oils, egg yolk, and our Plus CBD Oil™ products.
DecarboxylationRemoving a carboxyl group from a chemical compound; the process used to convert the CBD-A in our Plus CBD Oil™ Raw to our Plus CBD Oil™ Total Plant Complex.
Distilled oilRefers to our Plus CBD Oil™ Gold Formula which contains the highest concentration of CBD; this is the ultimate step in refining our oil, where excess plant material is distilled from our Plus CBD Oil™ Total Plant Complex in a solvent-free process.
Raw oilA whole-plant CO2 extraction from agricultural hemp; Cannabidiolic Acid, or CBD-A, comprises a significant proportion of the extracted cannabinoids in the raw oil.
CO2 ExtractionMethod used to extract our Plus CBD Oil™ concentrates; CO2 gas is pressurized into a a safe liquid and used to extract oils from plants with the advantage of no solvent residue.
Non-psychotoxicDoes not have a detrimental effect on the mind, personality or behavior; does not get you “high.”
HomeostasisSelf-regulating process of any system in the body; your body automatically finding balance.
ChlorophyllRefers to groups of green pigmented molecules found in plants and algae, that is important for plant photosynthesis.
