Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Hemp?
Hemp, or industrial hemp, is defined by the 2014 US Farm Bill as plants of the cannabis sativa
species which contain ≤0.3% THC, making their extracts non-psychoactive and legal.
Hemp is very sustainable and renewable (13 weeks to maturity)! It can be refined into countless
commercial items, including food, paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, animal feed, insulation, biofuel, and more.
Whole Spectrum Hemp Extract contains CBD, along with numerous other cannabinoids as well
as flavonoids, terpenoids and other compounds found naturally in the hemp plant. These
compounds each offer benefits of their own, while potentiating and enhancing the effects of the
other compounds present to nurture the endocannabinoid system; this is commonly referred to as the entourage effect.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a large network of receptors and transmitters found
throughout our bodies that has been shown to regulate numerous systems and functions.
Cannabinoids are compounds that interact with ECS receptors to promote homeostasis
(balance) within these systems. Endocannabinoids occur naturally in the body, while
phytocannabinoids, such as CBD and many others found in Whole Spectrum Hemp Extract,
occur naturally in the hemp plant. A daily regimen of Kingdom Harvest Sublingual Oil can nourish the ECS and promote balance and well-being.
What is CBD?
CBD is a compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This series of
receptors regulates pain, mood, the immune system, memory, stress response, and other important functions. Select CBD is extracted from industrial hemp.
Does CBD get me high?
While people find relief from stress and physical ailments using CBD, it is not psychoactive.
Will I have trouble with drug tests using CBD?
As with all hemp products, there is a chance that consumption could trigger a positive drug test.
Consult your doctor and/or employer if this is a concern.
