CBD – Glossary of Common Terms

Agricultural Hemp

Refers to varieties of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant that contains less than 0.3% THC in the dry weight material, and is grown for industrial purposes and legal for use in all 50 states and more than 40 countries.

Cannabis Sativa L.

A species of plant in the Cannabis genus; refers to both agricultural hemp and marijuana, which are both sub species however different plants entirely.

CBD

Short for cannabidiol; a phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis; does not result in intoxication and is currently being studied for potential effects in humans and animals.

CBD-A

Short for cannabidiolic-acid; an acidic cannabinoid, the naturally occurring raw form of CBD that is produced directly in the plant.

2-AG

A derivative of arachidonic acid that occurs naturally in the brain (as well as some foods) and acts as a messenger molecule, playing roles in appetite, depression, memory, and fertility; one of the two known endocannabinoids.

ENDOGENOUS

If something is endogenous, it has an internal cause or origin. It means 'originating within the organism itself'.

Endocannabinoid

Naturally occurring cannabinoids in the human body.

Endocannabinoid System

Refers to endocannabinoids, the enzymes that regulate their production and degradation, and their receptors.

Phytocannabinoid

Plant-based cannabinoids found in species of cannabis.

CB1

Cannabinoid receptor found primarily in the central nervous system (nerves in the brain and spinal cord).

CB2

Cannabinoid receptor found primarily in the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord).

THC

Short for tetrahydrocannabinol; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis shown to have some effects on humans and animals. However, it is responsible for the intoxicating effects associated with marijuana use.

CBN

Short for cannabinol; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis; it is produced when THC is metabolized and has little to no intoxicating effects.

CBG

Short for cannabigerol; known as the “parent cannabinoid” and is the chemical precursor to THC and CBD.

CBC

Short for cannabichromene; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis that has little to no intoxicating effects.

Entourage Effect

Refers to the idea that biologically active compounds can have enhanced biological activity when administered in combination with otherwise inactive compounds as opposed to isolated active compounds administered alone.

Hemptourage Effect

Vitamin E

Also known as alpha-tocopherol, a fat-soluble vitamin important for normal cell growth and function; found in vegetable oils, egg yolk and our CBDfx™ products.

Decarboxylation

Removing a carboxyl group from a chemical compound; the process used to convert the CBD-A in our CBDfx™ Raw to our CBDfx™ Total Plant Complex.

Distilled Oil

Refers to our CBDfx™ Gold Formula which contains the highest concentration of CBD; this is the ultimate step in refining our oil, where excess plant material is distilled from our CBDfx™ Total Plant Complex in a solvent-free process.

Raw Oil

A whole-plant CO2 extraction from agricultural hemp; Cannabidiolic Acid, or CBD-A, comprises a significant proportion of the extracted cannabinoids in the raw oil.

CO2 Extraction

Distilled Oil Method used to extract our CBDfx™ concentrates; CO2 gas is pressurized into a a safe liquid and used to extract oils from plants with the advantage of no solvent residue.

Non-psychotoxic

Does not have a detrimental effect on the mind, personality or behavior; does not get you “high.”

Homeostasis

Self-regulating process of any system in the body; your body automatically finding balance.
