What is CBD?

CBD 101

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the Cannabis sativa plant, or hemp plant. It’s one of the over 100 powerful cannabinoids found in hemp and is known for supporting body and mind in various ways, such as imparting a feeling of relaxation and calm focus or helping with pain. Unlike THC, which is the major active ingredient in marijuana, CBD does not have the same interactions with receptors in the body, which means it won't get you high.

CBD is known for its positive effects on both the body and mind. There are over 400 various other plant compounds naturally produced by hemp plants which also have unique and beneficial interactions with the body. Many of these are dependent on each other for efficient use by the body. This concept is called the “entourage effect” and is the biggest differentiator between full spectrum and other types of CBD, which do not contain these other beneficial compounds. 

Receptra's full-spectrum CBD oil is made from organic hemp grown in Colorado. CBD is also produced by marijuana plants, but these products have different cannabinoid profiles and are typically bred to be high in THC. Hemp plants cannot legally contain more than 0.3% THC. CBD hemp oil is not to be confused with hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is a product used in food and beauty items similar to how you would use olive oil or walnut oil.

 “The team at Receptra have it going on — they pride themselves on their organic, family-farmed, Colorado-grown hemp that purportedly possesses proprietary genetics. Something that truly sets Receptra apart from the rest of the pack, however, is their decision to exclusively use the flower of the hemp plant for their concoctions.” -
