What is CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp and is known for supporting the body and mind in various ways.

Does CBD get you high?

No, CBD itself is non-intoxicating, meaning it doesn’t get you high. On the other hand, THC, the main active ingredient in Cannabis and Hemp, is both a psychoactive compound and an intoxicating cannabinoid that leaves its users feeling “high.” The level of THC present in Cannabis is what determines the plant’s classification as marijuana or hemp. Hemp, by definition, contains no more than 0.3% THC. Too high? CBD can bring you down.

Does CBD show up on a drug test?

While employers that conduct drug screenings do not test for CBD metabolites, they almost certainly test for THC, the intoxicating compound found in cannabis. So, in short, the answer is no, CBD itself should not trigger a positive drug test. However, if you are taking a full spectrum CBD there are small traces of THC left in it. A broad spectrum CBD product will not contain any THC, if it complies with the industry standards.

What does CBD do?

Among the many benefits of CBD that our users experience, some of them include: Supporting a sense of calm and focus. Relieving everyday stresses and anxiety. Helps in recovery by reducing exercise-induced inflammation and pain. Supporting healthy sleep cycles. 

How does CBD make you feel?

The effects of CBD are different for everyone. A long-time HempX CBD user, Liz, has said, “I have been consistently using this product for 10 months now and have noticed the significant impact it has on my overall well-being.” Other users have described CBD’s effects as promoting “an overall relaxed feeling”—one that “cascades into all other daily activities.” CBD is there to keep your mind off of your problems.

How does CBD work?

The human body has a vast network of receptors, called the Endocannabinoid System. The purpose of this system is to help our body stay balanced and in good overall health, even when external factors and lifestyle choices diminish our wellbeing. CBD and other cannabinoids work with the receptors of the Endocannabinoid System to aid the body in its efforts to keep us in good health. CBD and other cannabinoids support many of the body’s physical and natural processes.
