Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. CBD has many beneficial properties and is used to promote wellness.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. The human body (and the bodies of all vertebrates) produce endocannabinoids, while cannabinoids found in plants are called phytocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to promote homeostasis.
The human body has two receptors for cannabinoids the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Although both are found all over the body, CB1 receptors are present in the brain and deal with pain, movement, cognitive function, and mood. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system and affect pain and inflammation, among other things. THC attaches to the CB1 receptors, whereas CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors. Unlike THC which attaches to receptors, CBD does not attach to the CB2 receptor. Rather, researchers believe that CBD influences the body’s use of endocannabinoids (promoting homeostasis).
The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
Commonly referred to as “CBD Oil”, a CBD tincture is CBD in liquid form. CBD extracts (isolate or distillate) are infused into medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil) from coconuts, which serves as a carrier oil. Tinctures are ingested orally. Fill the syringe on your dropper to 1ml and squirt under your tongue. Hold under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.
Your effective dose will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your condition, the application/consumption method, and the size of the person. Suggested dosing ranges from 5mg to 50mg per serving.
Some of the benefits reported by CBD users include improved mood, sleep, attention, mobility, and more. However, results may vary.
All of our full-spectrum CBD oils contain trace amounts of THC. The amount in each tincture is below the legal limit of .03%TCH.
Full-spectrum products are formulated with a CBD extract that has the same cannabinoid profile as the hemp biomass from which it came. Freed Hemp Company uses only hemp biomass that is high in CBD, rich in minor cannabinoids, and below the legal threshold of 0.3% THC. Freed Hemp Companies Full-Spectrum Tinctures are under 0.3% THC and legal in all 50 states.
Cannabinoids are compounds that act on the body’s endocannabinoid system that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Each cannabinoid interacts with the endocannabinoid differently and has different benefits. The most notable cannabinoids are CBD and THC, but there are at least 113 known cannabinoids. The other 111+ cannabinoids are commonly referred to as “minor cannabinoids”.
The presence of other cannabinoids and terpenes affect the way your body responds to cannabinoids in a synergistic manner in which the combined effect of CBD and other cannabinoids and/or terpenes is greater than the sum of its parts. If you would like to take advantage of the entourage effect, we recommend a full spectrum tincture.

The ideal method for taking CBD depends on the reason it is being used. For most conditions, we recommend a tincture due to its high bioavailability, precise dosing, and convenience.
It depends on the method and dose. For products with high bioavailability like tinctures users often report immediate results. However, most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take up to a half hour or more to be detectable. Individual results may vary.
It depends on the reason CBD is used, but you can use CBD throughout the day, or at particular times.
Yes, there are usually no issues when taken on an empty stomach.

Yes, We send samples to a third-party lab for all hemp used in processing. Each batch of CBD products is analyzed by a hired 3rd party lab to ensure accurate cannabinoid concentrations, and consistency. This includes testing for THC levels.
Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and is extremely unlikely to cause a high.
CBD has not been approved by the FDA in the treatment of any condition aside from particular seizure disorders. Consult a physician to determine if you could benefit from using CBD.
Hemp is legally defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% of the cannabinoid THC. THC causes a high and is illegal federally. Hemp contains trace amounts of THC, is unlikely to cause a high, and is legal to possess in all 50 US states.

CBD does not have an expiration date, however, some of our products have ingredients that do. Please refer to the expiration date on the packaging. Additionally, CBD can degrade with exposure to direct sunlight, air, and heat. Products should be stored in airtight containers in a cool, dark place.
CBD products should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place out of the reach of children. Exposure to air, direct sunlight, and heat can degrade CBD.
Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is under 0.3% THC. It is grown for food, fiber, or CBD extracted from its flowers. In other words, CBD is a derivative of the hemp plant.
If you are using a full spectrum product, there is chance that the trace and legal amount of THC in the product could cause you to test positive for THC. These products are not expected to cause a positive result for THC but we advise customers to consider the risks of incorrect detection prior to use of any full spectrum product.
Hemp seed oil does not contain CBD or other cannabinoids. While CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant’s flowers, hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. Look for Cannabidiol (CBD) on the Supplement Facts of the label to determine whether or not the product contains CBD.
Due to its interaction with the endocannabinoid system to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is very popular among people with no health concerns seeking to optimize health.
