About Cannabinoids

What are Cannabinoids?

What are Cannabinoids?

There are more than 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Most of these are difficult to extract, so typical products will contain only a single cannabinoid, CBD. The higher end full spectrum products may contain a handful of different cannabinoids, but far short of what is found in Dr Greenleaf. Our hemp oil contains 10 different cannabinoids including, CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, CBC, CBN, CBDV, CBDV-A, THCA, and delta 9-THC. Our oil comes from the hemp, not marijuana, so our product will always contain less than 0.3% THC. Unlike THC, the other cannabinoids have no psychoactive effects, which means you will not feel high from them. Hemp and cannabinoids extracted from hemp are federally legal and legal in most states. Cannabinoids are thought to work together synergistically and have many therapeutic uses.

What Is Full Spectrum?

What Is Full Spectrum?

When a product is full spectrum, it contains all the naturally occurring compounds in the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes, other phytonutrients, and essential fatty acids. Within each of these categories there is a broad range of distinct phytochemicals, and each of these components is thought to work differently on the body. Research suggests that when taken together the components of the cannabis plant are much more potent than any one of them would be alone. This strong synergistic effect of full spectrum products is commonly referred to as the “entourage effect”.

Not all full spectrum products are created equal. Often, products are marketed as full spectrum but mainly focus on the CBD content. These products will contain only trace amounts of other cannabinoids and terpenes and are reconstituted in a foreign oil, such as MCT, losing the other cannabis derived phytonutrients and essential fatty acids. Only whole plant products, like cold pressed hemp oil, will have a complete range of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, essential fatty acids, and other naturally occurring cannabis compounds. Consumers need to be careful! Dig into the details of how the product has been produced and always check the lab reports!

Will I Pass A Drug Test?

Will I Pass A Drug Test?

This is a difficult question to answer. Products made from hemp must contain less than 0.3% THC. Dr Greenleaf always contains less THC than the legal limit, and normally significantly less. So, it is unlikely that someone would fail a drug test because they took Dr Greenleaf. But, it is not impossible. Even the trace amounts of THC found in Dr Greenleaf could build up in a person’s system over time. The amount that builds up will depend on a number of factors including the amount of Dr Greenleaf taken, body composition, and metabolism.

Is Dr Greenleaf Legal?

Is Dr Greenleaf Legal?

The 2018 Farm Bill made cannabinoid products derived from hemp legal at the federal level. Cannabinoid products derived from hemp are also legal in most states, but not all states. State laws are changing rapidly, so it is important to check your specific state laws before purchasing a cannabinoid product.

Will Dr Greenleaf Get Me High?

No! THC is the only compound in the cannabis plant that has a psychoactive effect. Dr Greenleaf is produced from hemp, which contains less than 0.3% of THC.
