How Does CBD Work?
CBD stands for cannabidiol – one of the many different compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. THC is the other most common cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are unique because they act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system found throughout the body.
Decades of research shows that your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is primarily responsible for managing homeostasis: your body’s natural condition of balance. Everything from your temperature, blood sugar levels, pain sensation, sleeping, inflammation responses, CO2 levels, etc., need to be actively regulated within a narrow range of error to ensure optimal health.
CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body.
Is CBD Natural?
Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made.
How Is CBD Made?
Nearly pure CBD is isolated from the other cannabinoids found in hemp oil. Hemp oil is extracted from the cannabis plant and contains the full range cannabinoids found in the plant. Pure Plan CBD Oil uses a non-toxic and non-flammable CO2 extraction method. Prevalent in the food industry, and “generally regarded as safe” by the FDA, CO2 extraction eliminates the risk of solvent residues in the final product.
Will I Get 'High'?
No, all of Pure Plan CBD Oil Products strictly adhere to Utah State Regulations stating THC percentage must be .3% or less.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes, thanks to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD with 0.3% or less of THC is legal in all 50 states according to Federal Law.
How Is CBD Oil Extracted From The Plant?
There are many ways to extract CBD oil from the Cannabis plant. The CO2 extraction system uses CO2 as a solvent to extract the oil. CO2 solvent is considered a cleaner, purer form of extraction because there is no residue after extraction. To isolate the individual compounds (CBD being one of them), the oil is distilled after extraction.
Are Hemp Oil and CBD Oil The Same Thing?
No. While CBD oil and hemp oil come from different parts of the cannabis plant, CBD oil is derived from the whole plant, while hemp oil comes from its seeds. Hemp seed oil contains no active CBD.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic, volatile compounds found in plants. You have encountered terpenes every time you have smelled flowers or gotten a whiff of fresh fruit. There are over 200 terpenes found in the cannabis plant. They are what give cannabis its distinct aroma and flavor. Terpenes have beneficial effects and work synergistically with cannabinoids.
How Is CBD Taken?
CBD can be taken orally by placing it under the tongue, allowing it to dissolve and be absorbed, or ingested in capsules and edibles. CBD can also be added to ointments and lotions for topical use or inhaled using a vaporizer. The method of ingestion or application plays a significant role in how quickly CBD enters the system.
Since every body metabolizes differently, CBD dosing is a relatively inexact science. Some people experience the best CBD effects at a lower dose, while others experience the best effects at a higher dose. Start by using the recommended dose, and adjust as needed. With some trial and error you should be able to find the right amount for your body.
What Are The Benefits Of Taking CBD?
In accordance with federal regulations, we can only recommend our products for general wellness. We encourage you to do your own research and consult with doctors first before starting any new regimen. However, studies are currently in progress all around the world, evaluating CBD as a compound with potential benefits for sleep, anxiety, and inflammation. Other studies are testing CBD as an agent to promote health in the endocannabinoid system, which has been linked to a number of vital processes in the body such as general health, stress relief, and life balance.
Are CBD Products Safe?
Pure Plan ensures that its products are of the highest quality by consistently testing and using only non-GMO industrial hemp, grown in the USA. However, everyone processes CBD differently, and it is always recommended to consult with a physician before use.
What Is The Difference Between Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum?
Broad Spectrum CBD products contain an array of cannabinoids and terpenes, but ZERO THC. Think of Broad Spectrum CBD as Full Spectrum without the THC. … Broad Spectrum CBD is an excellent choice for individuals who can’t have any trace of THC in their system, whether for medical, personal or legal reasons.
How Should I Store My Pure Plan Products?

What Type Of Extraction Method Does Pure Plan Use?

This is the most expensive extraction method, and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method in the world.
What Type Of Testing / Analysis Is Used On Pure Plan Products?
All Pure Plan products are tested by third-party laboratories to provide a neutral, unbiased source of information. Third-party testing benefits the consumer because it is the most transparent method. An independent test ensures that the company cannot alter in-house results or publish inaccurate infomation.
