Q: What is CBD?

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, a phyto-cannabinoid compound within the category of cannabinoids, active components of cannabis. Unlike THC (the cannabinoid compound that produces a “high” in the user), CBD is notable for its lack of psychoactive properties. What CBD does possess, however, is the ability to positively affect certain functions in the human body. These properties allow CBD’s potential health benefits to be accessed by more people in a wider variety of circumstances.
The effects of CBD are being increasingly studied around the world in as a result of building evidence of its neuroprotective properties and its effectiveness in pain management, helping with depression, anti-inflammatory effect, treating epilepsy, and many other areas.

Q: Can Wellphora hemp oil/CBD cause me fail a drug test?

No. As stated above, the CBD extract in Wellphora products comes from the part of the hemp plant that contains no amount of THC sufficient to register on a drug test.

 

Q: How does CBD work?

The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that is involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes. To put it simply, the body naturally produces neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids, which interact with a system of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the body. This is vital to maintaining homeostasis, or balance within tissues and functions such as metabolism and the circulatory, digestive, immune, endocrine, nervous, endocrine and reproductive systems. There is strong evidence that ingested cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) can help maintain and boost the beneficial functioning of these systems.

 

Q: Why does Wellphora use organic fractionated coconut oil?

Our Canneuro hemp oil uses an extremely high-grade organic fractionated coconut oil as a carrier. “Fractionated” refers to the process of separating out certain parts of regular coconut oil, to produce a coconut oil that stays liquid at lower temperatures, and acts as an excellent source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). MCTs can play a role in helping burn more fat and calories and may aid in weight loss. Our fractionated coconut oil is more expensive than other ingredients commonly used for hemp oil, containing 93% MCT.

 

Q: How do I know how much CBD to take?

Because the CBD supplement industry is still relatively new, there is a variety of opinions on exactly the right dose for individuals based on age, weight, condition, etc. Fortunately, CBD has been widely shown to be well-tolerated by most people. If you are unsure about how much to use, we recommend starting with a less-potent formulation, taken once per day, so you can see how you feel before increasing your dosage. Wellphora offers a range of potencies to make it easier for you to get just the right amount for your particular needs.

 

Q: What is meant by “full-spectrum” CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD contains other related cannabinoids, as opposed to “CBD isolate,” which has had those additional components distilled out. Full-spectrum CBD is considered to be more effective for treating most ailments. This is believed to be due to the “entourage effect,” or the combined effect of the plant’s components working together naturally.
