What is the difference between Hemp Oil and Hemp Extract?
Theres so much confusion between these terms. Some people refer to hemp oil when speaking about hemp seed oil while others use it as shorthand to refer to an oil that carries CBD (cannabidiol) extract. Lets tackle the first one first: oil from hemp seeds is primarily composed of dietary fats, which means it can provide benefits for skin but does not include all of the same plant compounds (such as CBD). These phytocannabinoids – cannabidiol, among others – are found naturally in the leaves and flowers (also known as aerial parts) of hemp. After deriving the cannabinoids from plant parts during our production process, were left with a broad-spectrum hemp extract that retains a range of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids – all of which are found naturally in hemp. This extract is then diluted with a carrier oil to make the final Charlottes Web product, whether that be our hemp extract oils or capsules.
How does CBD oil work?
The human body has a vast network of receptors, called the Endocannabinoid System. The purpose of this system is to help our body stay balanced and in good overall health, even when external factors and certain lifestyle choices diminish our wellbeing. CBD and other cannabinoids fit into the receptors of the Endocannabinoid System, helping the body complete its efforts to keep us in good health by supporting many of the bodys physical processes.

What will it feel like when I take CBD oil?

Since hemp extract with cannabinoids works with the bodys internal Endocannabinoid System to maintain good health, the effect is personalized based on what you have going on internally. That being said, quite a few people mention a feeling of relaxation, while others note that hemp extract helps them feel focused.* The best way to find out how CBD will work for you, is to try it for yourself!
