Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. There’s a lot of confusion in the market. Only buy products containing CBD extract that was produced from licensed, US-grown hemp and tested by a third-party lab. You should be allowed to look at the lab results (Certificates of Analysis, or COAs). Everleigh provides all lab results on our Website.
Yes. Hemp extract contains CBD as well as other cannabinoids. Hemp seed oil has been used for many years in food and beauty products and does not contain CBD. A cannabis leaf on the label does not mean you are getting CBD.
The entourage effect is the term that refers to how the mix of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant work together for a better result. Everleigh products use a whole-plant extract to provide the benefits of a synergistic entourage effect as Mother Nature intended.
Beyond CBD and THC, more than 100 cannabinoids are found in cannabis, such as CBG, CBN, etc. The term spectrum refers to the cannabinoids in the extract. Full spectrum extract contains all of the cannabinoids that were in the plant, including THC. Broad spectrum has had the THC removed. CBD isolate does not contain any other cannabinoids. Everleigh products use a whole-plant extract with the THC removed.
Because CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system and homeostasis, CBD can impact a wide variety of other systems. Early research shows that CBD can act impact skin health, pain, inflammation, sleep, memory, mood, and a sense of well-being. With Everleigh products, you should expect to feel more comfortable in your skin while being supported in the other ways you strive for balance and wellness.
No. Marijuana drug tests are designed to detect the presence of THC and THC-COOH. Everleigh products do not contain THC.
This depends on where you live. The 2018 Farm Bill removed legal restrictions at a Federal level on growing hemp and extracting CBD from those plants, as long as the THC level is less than .3%. Each state has the authority to determine legality within their state lines. It is currently illegal to sell CBD products in South Dakota, Idaho, and Nebraska. Special note, the FDA’s current stance is that it is Federally illegal to add CBD to food, drinks, or dietary supplements. Bath and body products with CBD are federally legal.
CBD and THC are the two most plentiful cannabinoids of the hundreds found in cannabis. THC is a psychoactive molecule that binds with receptors, many in the brain, to create a feeling of euphoria or a “high”. CBD works differently by stimulating the body’s ECS to create feelings of well-being and promote homeostasis, or “balance”. In addition, the presence of CBD has been found to moderate the “high” produced by THC.
The ECS is a major organ system that was discovered in the 1990’s consisting of a network of receptors throughout the body and brain. Because the ECS’s role is to regulate the other major body systems to bring the body into balance, or homeostasis, the ECS is associated with a broad range of functions such as pain, inflammation, sleep, memory, appetite, reproduction, and mood.
Cannabinoids are compounds found in plants such as cannabis that are so close to some chemicals our own bodies produce that they can interface with endocannabinoid system (ECS) receptors.
No, CBD does not produce an altered state of mind. Everleigh products do not contain THC.
CBD is the acronym for cannabidiol, one of the two most active cannabinoids among hundreds found in both hemp and marijuana. CBD is non-addictive and non-intoxicating. Research is currently underway around the world to understand how the CBD molecule may reduce inflammation and anxiety, among many other therapeutic properties.
