Organic CBD Oil FAQ
What is CBD oil? CBD stands for Cannabidiol and refers to the the major cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is an oil that is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis/hemp plant. CBD oil is naturally occurring in the plant and typically goes through a process of winterization and short path distillation until it is in its purest form for use as CBD oil.
Can you explain Cannabinoids, Endocannabinoids and Phytocannabinoids? Most of the benefits associated with cannabis come from cannabinoids. They are the active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. Cannabinoids found in plants are referred to as Phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called Endocannabinoids. Everyone has Endocannabinoids and an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in their body regardless of whether they use cannabis or not. The ECS has been linked to balancing processes such as sleep, mood, appetite, stress, chronic pain, memory and fertility. Phytocannabinoids have the potential to interact with the body’s ECS to help achieve homeostasis (the body’s internal balance of processes).
How does CBD work in the body? CBD’s effects are a result of its interaction with the Endocannabinoid System. CBD is thought to impact the ECS by binding to the endocannabinoid receptors.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana? Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis, however Marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which is responsible for making you “high”. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, not likely to cause any form of high. Transcending Organics products undergo strict filtration protocols to remove THC from the final product, ensuring our CBD is lawful and will not have any psychoactive effect.
Are there any negative side effects associated with taking CBD? CBD is often well-tolerated particularly at moderate doses. No customers have reported any negative side-effects to date. Regardless of this, we always recommend consulting your medical practitioner before use.

Terpenes. What are they and why do you use them? Simply, Terpenes are what give plants their smell, such as the citrus in orange. However Terpenes are not simply aromas, and are responsible for a variety of physiological effects, such as the relaxing effect of lavender and other plants used in aromatherapy. The Terpenes used in our CBD are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. When used together with CBD the effect experienced can be enhanced, often referred to as the Entourage Effect which is why we choose to add terpenes to our CBD. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Administration and are are already being used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
