CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of over 100 different naturally occurring cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.
CBD oil is the essential oil extracted from the flowers/leaves of the cannabis plant. It contains a variety of naturally occurring active compounds called (phyto)cannabinoids and terpenes. Depending on its formula, it could contain beneficial ingredients that supplement your body- like omega fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamins/minerals.
CBD works by stimulating your ‘Endocannabinoid System’ (ECS)- making it synthesize endocannabinoids. The ECS is made up of a series of receptor sites, spread throughout the body (CB-1 and CB-2 receptors). The ECS’ job is to create a homeostatic environment within the body, despite fluctuations of the external environment. CBD does bind directly with your CB-2 receptors, but not your CB-1 receptor. These direct actions on the CB-2 receptor sites provide the potential to help your body with a wide range of therapeutic benefits.

No. CBD is non-intoxicating. THC is the psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant. All of Med-Well’s products are completely THC-free, so feel free to enjoy them all with peace of mind.
Though THC and CBD are two of the primary constituents of the cannabis plant, they interact within the body in very different ways- offering different effects. THC – the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis- gives its users a sense of euphoria and relaxation. It can also alter senses of sight, smell, hearing, and has the potential to reduce fatigue and aggression. CBD – the second most abundant compound in cannabis- provides mammals with relief from a multitude of physiological and cognitive conditions.
Yes. CBD is completely non-toxic. It is not physically addictive like other drugs can be. If purchased from a reputable/quality source, the product should be non-GMO, pesticide and solvent free. If you do accidentally take too much CBD, you’ll most likely experience high-relaxation or drowsiness. Please consult with your physician before adding CBD to your routine. Especially if you are taking any prescribed medications/steroids, NSAIDS, antibiotics, etc.- the reason being that CBD has the potential to inhibit your liver from metabolizing certain drugs- which can cause unwanted side effects.
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by the cannabis plant. Also known as phytocannabinoids, they mimic molecules that naturally occur in all mammals- called endocannabinoids. Examples of commonly known cannabinoids are- CBD (cannabidiol), THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBC (cannabichromene), CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), etc.
Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring signaling molecules, or neurotransmitters, that interact with receptor sites on the surface of cells throughout the body. (These receptor sites being your CB-1 and CB-2 receptors). Their job is to instruct cells to adjust their activities, creating a homeostatic environment within the body.
Terpenes are ‘volatile hydrocarbon’ organic compounds produced by a wide variety of plants (herbs, fruits, etc.). They are fragrant oils, secreted from the resinous glands of the flowers on the cannabis plant and all plants. If you are familiar with essential oils, like lavender (linalool) and eucalyptus (cineole), that are used for aromatherapy- those scents/smells are terpene profiles extracted from the plants. Terpenes can have a powerful impact on your body, when used correctly, by enhancing the effects of cannabinoids, giving the oil its natural flavor, and providing medicinal benefits.
These are receptor sites throughout your body that make up your endocannabinoid system. They create a response when interacted with by phyto and endocannabinoids. They are spread throughout your body and create a different response to stimuli- producing different effects: CB-1 receptors are generally found in the brain, nervous system, peripheral organs, intestines, skeletal muscles, and connective tissues (adipose tissues). Their job is to target endocannabinoid-building molecules called ligands (which bind to receptors and create a signal), as well as anandamide (which acts as a messenger molecule and plays a role in pain, appetite, and memories) and THC (the main cannabinoid that creates the “high” feeling). CB-2 receptors are found in white blood cells, the immune system, spleen, tonsils, and the gastrointestinal system. Their job is to regulate cytokine release (signaling molecules that mediate immunity, inflammation, and hematopoiesis (creation of blood cells)).
The system that regulates the endocannabinoids is called ‘The Endocannabinoid System.’ Its job is the adjust bodily functions from sleep/appetite regulation, mood patterns, immune response, cell/tissue life and many more things. It also engages whenever an individual participates in physical activities- releasing euphoria while helping control locomotive activities (i.e.- skating, running, swimming, surfing, etc.). It has an impact on our motivational salience for rewards- which is our internal meter that mediates how much energy/sacrifice to put into achieving a goal. It’s the reason you keep trying to land a trick or achieve a goal you’ve put your mind too, even though you’re physically/mentally drained.
Though marijuana and hemp are actually very broad classifications of cannabis, the one defining difference that separates them into two categories is the amount of THC in the plant. Hemp is classified as a variety of cannabis that contains less than 0.3% THC. It is generally harvested for its ability to produce resources such as textiles, building materials, paper, food, and more. Marijuana, on the other hand, contains more than 0.3% THC and offers psychotropic and euphoric effects on the user (It gets you high). We use a proprietary strain of cannabis sativa called PCR hemp. It has been cultivated to produce very high concentrations of CBD with minute quantities of THC- classifying it as “hemp.” This allows us to offer a very potent product that’s rich in cannabinoids and terpenes, but lacks THC.
Your Cytochrome P450 enzyme system (or CYP450 system for short) is a system in the liver that is responsible for metabolizing potentially toxic compounds- including alcohol and over 60% of all drugs/medications you’ve eaten in your lifetime. When CBD is present in the system, it can inhibit the system’s ability to metabolize certain drugs, leading to an increase in processing times. This is potentially dangerous because when the system is impacted this way, it may lead to higher/lower levels of those drugs or medications in your system- potentially causing unwanted side-effects. Other things that impact the system in the same manor are: grapefruit, goldenseal, watercress, and St. John’s Wort- to name a few. Please consult with your doctor before adding CBD to your routine, especially if you’re on any prescription medications. Discuss how to make adjustments to the dosage of your medication, so you can safely ingest both products. (SOURCE: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26651971)
Because of everyone’s unique genetics, no two people will react to CBD the same way. Varying factors such as age, weight, health conditions, sex, and metabolism will affect the onset time it takes to feel CBD in your system. It has been suggested to start with 5-10mg, or 1mg of CBD for every 20lbs of body-weight. Start small, determine how it effects you, then work your way up/down from there. Look at it as a little science project.
The method in which you choose to take CBD in entirely dependent upon what you want out of it. Due to FDA regulations, we cannot suggest which of our products is best for you. We can, on the other hand, inform you about the benefits of each: Inhaling CBD via a vaporizer/cartridge provides the quickest onset time to take effect and has the highest bioavailability. Softgels are one of our second-most bioavailable products. With our nanoemulsion technology we’ve managed to make our pills highly water-soluble- helping your body absorb/use the CBD particles more efficiently and effectively. Sublingually taking CBD (under the tongue) with our tincture is another excellent method of administration; it provides a fast and effective onset time. Our gummies offer a delicious and discreet way to take CBD.
Bioavailability is the percentage of a dosage that ends up in the bloodstream, becoming readily available for your body to use. A product that has ‘high bioavailability’ means it has a faster on-set time, resulting in the user feeling its effects faster and better than any other products.
Biphasic means that consuming different dosages of a product will result in different effects. Higher dosage- more likely to feel drowsy/sedated Lower dosage- less likely to feel drowsy/sedated
