Below, is some of the most commonly used terminology to help empower you about CBD, Hemp, and Cannabis;

  • Anandamide

It participates in the body’s endocannabinoid system by binding to the cannabinoid receptors. The same receptors the psychoactive compound THC in cannabis acts on.  

  • Bioaccumulation

Bioaccumulation is the process of accumulation of chemicals in a residing organism that takes place if the rate of intake exceeds the rate of excretion.   

  • Aeroponics

It is a cultivation technique that helps plants grow in an environment where they are dependent on air rather than soil.

  • Alcohol extraction

A commonly used method for cannabis is to create cannabis oil and concentrates.  The alcohol works as a solvent and pulls the THC, terpenes, and cannabinoids from the plant.

  • Anandamide AAE

An endocannabinoid that binds to cannabinoid receptors and replicated the activity of plant-derived cannabinoid drugs.

  • Bioavailability

The amount of the substance that enters the bloodstream and is able to have an active effect.  

  • Biphasic Effect

Low and high doses can be amplified at a high dose.  

  • Broad-spectrum

Effective against a wide range of organisms such as insects or bacteria.  

  • Cannabidolic Acid (CBDa)

A naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant.  It’s most abundant in the glandular trichomes in the female seedless flower.   

  • Cannabigerol (CBG)

One of more than 120 identified cannabinoid compounds found in the plant genus cannabis.  

  • CBD isolate

A form of the purest CBD, or cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound present in the cannabis plant.  

  • CBD Distillate

A potent concentrate distilled from CBD hemp flower.  CBD and other cannabinoids are extracted and isolated from the other components of the plant. 

  • Cannabichromene

It is one of 120 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

  • Cannabidiol

Discovered in 1940.  It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants the second most prevalent compound in the cannabis plants, along with THC accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.   

  • Cannabinoid 1 Receptor

Is a G protein-coupled cannabinoid receptor.  It is expressed in the peripheral and central nervous systems.

  • Cannabinoid 2 Receptor

Regulate the biological function of certain cells, tissues, and organs.  CB2 receptors are present on white blood cells and in the tonsils, the spleen, immune cells, and neurons.

  • Cannabis

Cannabis refers to a group of three varieties of marijuana plants with psychoactive properties: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis.  Cannabis is also known as Marijuana.  Slang terms for cannabis include marijuana, skunk, Mary Jane, weed, pot, dope, grass, and reefer.  It’s a psychoactive drug from the cannabis plant.   

  • Cannabis Distillate

Ultra-refined extracts from the cannabis plant.  Distillates contain a single cannabinoid in pure and potent oil.

  • Cannabis Indica

An annual plant in the Cannabaceae.  Cultivated for many purposes.  

  • Cannabis Sativa

An annual herbaceous flowering plant.   Used as a source of industrial fiber, seed, oil, food, recreation, religious and spiritual moods, and medicine.  

  • Closed-loop extraction

A method of extraction in which solvents are not exposed to open air.

  • Cure

A process used to preserve the cannabis plant and retain its flavors and therapeutic properties.

  • Decarboxylation

The process of applying heat to release and activate CBD and THC in cannabis.

  • Delta-8 THC
    Like Delta-9 THC, Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid present in the cannabis plant.   It has antiemetic, anxiolytic, orexigenic, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.

  • Delta-9 THC
    A major cannabinoid found in abundance in cannabis.  It’s the main compound in weed strains that get people high.  Legally Prescribed for medicinal purposes.

  • Delta-10 THC

    It will get you high, but it is less potent than Delta 9.  

  • Entourage Effect

A term used to describe the process where a combination of cannabinoids is considered more effective than an isolated molecule.

  • Endocannabinoid system

Is a complex biological system composed of endocannabinoids which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nerve and peripheral system.  

  • Epidiolex

The first and only FDA-approved prescription CBD used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), Dravet syndrome, or tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) in patients 1 year of age and older.

  • Flavonoids

Are Plant compounds that have antioxidants benefits.

  • Full Spectrum CBD 

Contains all the naturally occurring compounds of the cannabis plant which has an association with THC.

  • Industrial Hemp

Hemp grown and cultivated particularly for industrial use including textiles, clothing, food, biodegradable plastic, etc is called industrial hemp.

  • CBD Isolate

Is the purest form of CBD, separated from all other plants compounds.

  • Phyto cannabinoid

The chemical compounds in cannabis plants mimic the endocannabinoids naturally produced by the body. CBD and THC are examples of Phyto cannabinoids, but there are at least 113 different Phyto cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

It is the most known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant.  THC is the cannabinoid known for that ‘high’ feeling associated with its recreational use.

  • Terpenes

These are aromatic oils that are known to give cannabis and other plants that particular aroma and taste.
