1. What is the difference between Marijuana and Hemp?
Hemp and Marijuana and are two different Cannabis strains that come from the same plant species (Cannabis Sativa L). The plant genus Hemp (Cannabis) belongs to the family of Hemp plants, which contains consistently high amounts of CBD and virtually no traces of THC. However, if a Hemp plant has a high THC content, it is technically a Marijuana plant.
2. What is the difference between THC and CBD?
THC affects the brain by binding to naturally occurring CB1 receptors in the central nervous system and can create a “high”.
On the other hand, CBD is a different shaped molecule that binds to CB2 receptors in cells and body tissues outside the central nervous system and is not psychoactive. The spectrum of CBD is now the subject of many medical studies.
3. Does CBD create a “high”?
No. Unlike Marijuana with its high THC content, CBD does not produce any intoxication. Consumption of CBD is considered safe and harmless.
4. What is CBD-Oil?
CBD-Oil is a natural oil extracted from the flowers and leaves of the Hemp plant. It is used by people around the world for a variety of purposes.
5. What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active substances found in Hemp plants. Cannabinoids are technically referred to as Phytocannabinoids, while the Cannabinoids produced by the human body are called Endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s Endocannabinoid-System, which promotes homeostasis. In addition to the Cannabinoid CBD, a major component of the Hemp plant, there are at least 113 different Cannabinoids that have been isolated from Cannabis and show different effects.
6. How does CBD work?
The effect of CBD is based on its interaction with the body’s Endocannabinoid System. CBD has an indirect effect on the Endocannabinoid-System, mostly through activation of external receptors and interaction with enzymes.

7. What is the Endocannabinoid-System?
The human Endocannabinoid-System is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to activate physiological processes at the cellular level.

8. What does Full-Spectrum mean?
Compared to Broad-Spectrum products or CBD-Isolate products, Full-Spectrum CBD-Oils contain the full spectrum of the Hemp plant ingredients (Cannabinoids, Terpenes, and Flavonoids). These valuable components unfold in combination to their maximum effect and are the result of a particularly gentle oil extraction technology for the recovery and preservation of all natural active ingredients.
9. What is the Entourage effect?
Full-Spectral CBD-Oils contain a variety of Cannabinoids and Terpenes as well as other beneficial compounds. Each of the compounds has special effects on the human body. Since Terpenes can affect the body’s response to Cannabinoids, the combined effect is often greater than the sum of the individual’s effects. This generated total effect of all ingredients is called the “Entourage- Effect”.
10. Is CBD consumption safe?
There are no known cases of illness caused by the consumption of CBD-Oil.
11. What is CBD used for?
Many people use CBD to support the body’s natural systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the ability of the human body to regulate and balance a variety of physiological systems.
12. Are there traces of THC in CBD oil?

14. What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds that are formed in the flower cluster of the cannabis plant. Terpenes give cannabis its specific aromas and have been used by man for thousands of years in aromatherapy.
Terpenes are recognized as harmless to human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a variety of foods and cosmetic products.
15. How often can I take CBD?
