Frequently Asked Questions

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound found in hemp and marijuana, which comprise the cannabis family. CBD is continuing to grow in popularity as a way to manage stress, anxiety, pain, and a myriad of other symptoms.

We typically associate marijuana with getting stoned, but CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant to make products that come without the high. The molecule in marijuana that gets us high is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), and nowadays, you can turn to hemp-derived CBD products with little to no THC for clear-headed symptom relief. All of Clearmind's products are derived from 100% organic hemp grown in Colorado farms.

It’s not just CBD either. Hemp produces a vast array of potentially therapeutic compounds called cannabinoids. We are currently able to isolate 113 different cannabinoids. We’re slowly getting to know them and their beneficial effects. So far, the sheer number and variety of ailments CBD is being utilized for is quite impressive. As time grows, we will learn which mixture of cannabinoids works best for each person. Products like our 'Full Spectrum' hemp oil are made from the whole plant. This ensures all the cannabinoids are captured in the outcome so that the whole range of the plant's benefits are available to you. Read more about 'Full Spectrum' further below.

CBD oil is derived from hemp plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of THC. At Clearmind, our CBD oils always have less than 0.3% THC. CBD content of CBD oil can vary tremendously across different vendors due to the varying quality of hemp that's used, as well as varying preparation and extraction techniques. Clearmind produces some of the market's finest quality CBD oil, supercritical CO2 extracted from healthy, organic, CBD-rich hemp plants grown in select Colorado farms. 

Each of our bodies has a set of receptors that interacts with compounds called cannabinoids, like CBD. These receptors, found throughout the body, comprise the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex signaling system that ensures our bodies maintain homeostasis. An example of homeostasis is your controlling body temperature.

Put another way, the endocannabinoid system keeps us in balance by directing the communication traffic in our bodies. Cannabinoids such as CBD interact with this system, mimicking the natural endocannabinoid compounds produced by the body. CBD does not fit into these receptors, but rather blocks harmful compounds from entering them or helps guide helpful compounds into the receptors. 

Interestingly, CBD affects activity beyond the endocannabinoid system and can also interact with opioid, dopamine, and serotonin receptors. The ability of CBD to interact with so many different systems throughout the body suggests it has enormous potential to assist us in fields such as psychiatry and medicine.

Full Spectrum refers to an oil or product which contains all the cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in the cannabis plant. Cannabis, with its complex chemical structure, contains over 100 active cannabinoids aside from CBD. These other cannabinoids have been found to have symptom alleviating qualities as well. Cannabis also contains terpenes, which are regarded as increasing the efficacy of these cannabinoids. 

When present together, CBD and all other essential cannabinoids, as well as terpenes, produce the phenomenon known as "The Entourage Effect", which refers to the increased effectiveness due to all cannabinoids working synergistically. The symbiotic relationship between cannabinoids and terpenes has been shown to increase the healing properties of each.

Clearmind Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is supercritical CO2 extracted from the whole plant and contains lab-certified levels of THC under the 0.3% legal limit. We also add CBD Isolate for strength and efficacy.
