Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic compound extracted from the hemp plant. It is the most renown cannabinoid in the hemp plant for several reasons. First, it does not have any psychoactive effects, so it does not give users the “high” associated with THC. Second, it has been singled out for its effectiveness in helping people who suffer from anxiety, sleep disorders, pain conditions and more.
Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the growing, processing, and selling of hemp extracts. CBD and hemp are now 100% legal in all 50 states.
No. Full-spectrum CBD oil does contain trace amounts of THC, less than 0.3%, the legal limit, which helps to improve the “entourage effect” of cannabinoids working together to maximize their impact in the body. Each of our products is made using a full spectrum- prime Kentucky 100% organic industrial grown hemp.
The “entourage effect” describes the effects of cannabinoids when working together, rather than separated into in an isolate form. Research has shown that cannabinoids work best when they are accompanied by the other healthy cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
CBD works in the body by interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system helps to regulate other systems in the body, bringing your body closer to a homeostatic equilibrium. This is why CBD seems to help many different aspects of human health, by activating your body’s own endocannabinoid system to achieve a healthy balance.
Yes! Our pets get the same potential health benefits from CBD as humans.
The endocannabinoid system is a complex arrangement of receptors in the nervous systems of all mammals, including humans. These receptors affect other body systems to help regulate your appetite, sleep, mood, inflammation, and pain.
Receptors for cannabinoids are found in the digestive, reproductive, nervous, and immune systems. Because cannabinoids interact with almost every system in our bodies, they’re often touted as a cure-all. While they’re not truly able to heal everything, they do regulate neurotransmitter function, inflammation, mitochondrial function, and metabolism.
Depending on the delivery method and the serving-to-body-weight ratio or just the way your body naturally interacts with CBD. You may begin to feel the effects of taking CBD in up to 30 minutes. After taking a regular daily serving for a week or two, you should see a significant relief in symptoms. We recommend trying CBD for 90 days to see its full potential benefits.
The difference between legal hemp and illegal marijuana is the level of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. According to current federal law, hemp plants are legal as long as the THC level is below 0.3%.

An informed CBD consumer needs to know the difference between “full spectrum CBD” and “CBD isolate.” These terms are related to how the hemp is processed and both methods have their advantages and downsides. We only use full spectrum extracts in our products because we believe there is enough evidence showing that all cannabinoids together produce what is known as the “entourage effect.” CBD isolate does not contain any other cannabinoids, and therefore loses much of its efficacy as a beneficial ingredient.
Full-spectrum CBD is a distillation of hemp biomass that contains high levels of CBD along with other cannabinoids naturally present in the cannabis plant, like cannabidiol acid (CBDA), cannabidivarin (CBDV), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabinol (CBN) also, including a tiny amount of THC that by law must be less than 0.3%. Full-spectrum also includes other phytochemicals like terpenes, which are flavor compounds that give hemp plants their smell and contribute to the full-spectrum entourage effect.
CBD is safe for almost everyone, according to a recent report from the World Health Organization, but you May want to check with your doctor before starting a CBD product, especially if you are pregnant, nursing or on any medications. Research has shown several CBD oil benefits, ranging from alleviating social anxiety to improving rheumatoid arthritis.
CBD potential health benefits:
This is a common question and misconception. As mentioned above, while they come from the same plant, they are different strains and CBD is harvested from the plants that contain below .03% THC (microscopic amount). CBD is completely legal and is not considered a drug. Because of the often confused history of these plants, many manufacturers use “hemp oil” instead of the more controversial “CBD oil” in their marketing. CBD levels can vary drastically. That’s why ROOTED wants to educate and inform you what you are purchasing.
From a sustainability standpoint, it is a shame that hemp has gotten so much negative press because it comes from a similar strain of plant. Aside from the CBD benefits, hemp is one of the strongest, longest, and most durable natural fibers and it can be grown without any type of pesticides or herbicides! It also:
