Frequently Asked Questions
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, or molecular compound, produced uniquely by the cannabis family. CBD is non-psychoactive and is just one of dozens of known cannabinoids and other phytochemicals found in the hemp plant. All Holy City Remedy products are made with CBD derived from American grown Industrial Hemp.
CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products. What is interesting is that both CBD and THC compounds have the exact same molecular formula — 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms. The difference lies in the way the atoms are arranged. That gives CBD and THC different chemical properties, and they affect your body differently. Both CBD and THC work with receptors that release neurotransmitters in your brain. They can affect things like pain, mood, sleep, and memory. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive element in marijuana), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and doesn’t cause the “high” associated with marijuana.
CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are both present in marijuana and industrial hemp, although marijuana contains much more THC than hemp, while hemp typically contains much more CBD. Federal law currently defines industrial hemp as cannabis plants containing less than 0.3% THC by dry weight.
CBD works by interacting with a huge set of receptors in your body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Everyone’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is unique to their body, like fingerprints, and your ECS is involved in many important jobs, like regulating your anxiety levels, mood, anti-inflammatory response, pain perception, sleep schedule, immune system, as well as other important bodily functions and responses.
Holy City Remedy’s full-spectrum CBD products do contain trace amounts of THC, with levels below 0.3%. As such, while unlikely, Holy City Remedy does not guarantee that you will or will not pass a drug screen after using our products. It is possible that the trace THC content may show up on various drug screenings. If this poses a concern for you, we recommend you discuss it with your employer and/or health care provider.
Full-spectrum CBD products are made with multiple cannabinoids and compounds found in industrial hemp, including up to the federally legal limit of 0.3% THC. Full-spectrum CBD may also contain a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber.
While isolate CBD products in and of themselves could provide specific benefits, the “Entourage Effect” suggests that full-spectrum CBD products could offer an even more extensive array of benefits when multiple cannabinoids and chemical compounds are allowed to interact with one another while working with the body’s endocannabinoid system(ECS) by releasing neurotransmitters in your brain. In addition to CBD, THC plays a role in the “Entourage Effect” in which multiple hemp compounds synergize with CBD for greater wellness potential.
