Optimizing CBD relies mostly on the method of ingestion. The order of optimal absorption methods ranking from greatest to least is: Topical / transdermal (cosmetics absorbed through the skin), vapor inhalation, and digestion (drinks & foods). CBD alone has an absorption rate of roughly 30%. With the addition of other cannabinoids this rate is elevated to over 90%.

What is the difference between Full Spectrum, Isolate and Nano CBD?
An isolate product contains pure CBD isolated from all other chemical compounds in the original plant material. This means that the CBD solely exists by itself and can be visualized as a white-colored powder. Full spectrum CBD, unlike CBD isolate products, includes the full range of cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Full spectrum CBD can provide a greater effect than CBD alone because all the cannabinoids work together in the entourage effect. There are over 100 compounds in the cannabis
Does CBD interact with any prescription medications?
Many types of medication—over 60%, in fact—are metabolized in the liver by a family of enzymes known as cytochrome P540, or CYP450. The process of metabolism is pretty complicated, but it involves multiple molecular pathways and various enzymes that help your body get rid of compounds, or it can involve breaking a compound down into a simpler molecule that your body can use. CBD has a very unique interaction with CYP450—they basically deactivate one another. CBD is both metabolized by CYP450 an

Oils are secreted from the resin glands and are what give different cannabis/hemp strains their unique flavor profiles and aromas. Plants utilize these secretions as a way to ward off predators in the wild as they may be deterred by certain scents. On the other end
