WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis. Cannabidiol is the second-most abundant cannabinoid in the plant after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It has many potential therapeutic benefits, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and seizure-suppressant properties. It is a natural compound that comes from the leaves, flowers and stalks of hemp or marijuana cannabis.
MOST COMMON QUESTIONS
WHAT IS FULL-SPECTRUM CBD?
If you are concerned about the impact of THC, it is natural that you will have concerns about the use of full-spectrum CBD. The THC content found in full-spectrum hemp products is going to be very limited, coming in at or under 0.3% Delta-9 THC. This will not be enough THC to stimulate a psychoactive effect, but on some rare occasions, some users may experience a mild psychoactive effect due to the amount of THC present and the entourage effect found in full-spectrum products.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP OIL AND HEMP EXTRACT?
If you have been searching for CBD oil or hemp oil, it is likely that you have found results based on both terms. This will lead many people to believe that the terms are interchangeable or related, but this isn’t the case. Yes, there are similarities between Hemp extract or CBD oil both are one and the same and hemp oil which is very different.
Hemp Oil is made by cold-pressing the hemp seeds into an omega-rich oil much like olive oil or coconut oil which has healthy fats and omegas but does not contain CBD or other cannabinoids found in Hemp extract.
Hemp Extract is derived from the hemp plant flowers and it will contain a profile full of cannabinoids and terpenes. Our Hemp Extract is taken from our 100% certified organic flower from our indoor hemp plants only not the leaves, stems, and seeds. It is Hemp extract that is noted for the medicinal benefits that many users experience not from Hemp oil.
Hemp oil doesn’t provide the same benefit. In fact, hemp oil is only recommended for things like cooking, in producing eco-friendly paints and as a natural moisturizer. Given that most users of CBD oil are looking for health benefits, hemp oil would not be able to provide the same sort of benefit or outcome.
IS PURE ROOTS MARIJUANA?
No. All Pure Roots products come from hemp plants, not marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are close relatives, but not the same. By definition, hemp contains no more than .3% THC – the psychoactive compound that is found in higher concentrations in marijuana.

WHAT DOES CBD OIL TASTE LIKE?
