CBD 101

CBD has been getting a lot of attention lately and we know it can be confusing — here are the facts:

Hemp vs. Cannabis – what’s the difference?

By law, hemp is a term used to classify cannabis that contains 0.3% or less THC.

CBD oil is made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant (the only parts of the plant where CBD is found), while hemp oil, or hemp seed oil, is made from hemp seeds, meaning there is no CBD content.

So, what exactly is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the most researched of the 100+ cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp. Unlike THC, another well-known cannabinoid, CBD does not produce a ‘high.’

Is all CBD created equal?

The short answer is no – there are important differences worth noting: 

CBD Isolate: extract that contains only CBD and no other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. 

Broad Spectrum: CBD oil extracted from hemp can be refined to completely remove all trace amounts of THC, without removing the other beneficial plant compounds. State of Kind uses this form of CBD oil.

Full Spectrum: extract that includes all cannabinoids found in the plant, including under 0.3%THC.

What’s special about State of Kind’s CBD?

  • Expertly extracted from organically grown US hemp
  • Specially formulated by a team of three PhDs for maximum performance
  • 3x tested for potency and purity
  • A high concentration of broad-spectrum hemp extract, meaning it contains other cannabinoids that amplify the benefits of CBD
