CBD Glossary



  • Agricultural Hemp: refers to varieties of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant that contains less than 0.3% THC in the dry weight material, and is grown for industrial purposes.

  • Cannabis Sativa L.: a species of plant in the Cannabis genus; refers to both agricultural hemp and marijuana.

  • CBD: short for cannabidiol; a phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis; does not result in euphoria and has shown to have benefits on human and animal health.

  • CBD-A: short for cannabidiolic-acid; an acidic cannabinoid, the naturally occurring raw form of CBD that is produced directly in the plant.

  • Endocannabinoid: naturally occurring cannabinoids in the human body.

  • Endocannabinoid System: refers to endocannabinoids, the enzymes that regulate their production and degradation, and their receptors.

  • Phytocannabinoid: plant-based cannabinoids found in species of cannabis.

  • CB1: cannabinoid receptor found primarily in the central nervous system (nerves in the brain and spinal cord).

  • CB2: cannabinoid receptor found primarily in the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord).

  • THC: short for tetrahydrocannabinol; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis shown to have some benefits on human and animal health, however, is responsible for intoxicating effects associated with marijuana use.

  • CBN: short for cannabinol; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis; it is produced when THC is metabolized and has little to no intoxicating effects.

  • CBG: short for cannabigerol; known as the “parent cannabinoid” and is the chemical precursor to THC and CBD.

  • CBC: short for cannabichromene; a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis that has little to no intoxicating effects.

  • Entourage Effect: refers to the idea that biologically active compounds can have enhanced biological activity when administered in combination with otherwise inactive compounds as opposed to isolated active compounds administered alone.

  • Distilled oil: the step in refining hemp CBD oil, where excess plant material is distilled from our hemp flower in a solvent-free process.

  • Raw oil: a whole-plant CO2 extraction from agricultural hemp; Cannabidiolic Acid, or CBD-A, comprises a significant proportion of the extracted cannabinoids in the raw oil.

  • Terpene: a large and diverse class of strong smelling organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants and insects.

  • Non-psychotoxic: does not have a detrimental effect on the mind, personality or behavior; does not get you “high.”

  • Homeostasis: self-regulating process of any system in the body; your body automatically finding balance.


  • Third Party Lab Tested: a private party not affiliated with the manufacturer or distributor performs a scientific analysis of a product tfor cannabinoid content as well as heavy metals, pesticides and microbial contaminates  

  • Certificate of Analysis / Lab Tests: a document from an accredited laboratory that shows the quantity of various cannabinoids in a products as well as heavy metals, pesticides and microbial contaminates

  • ISO 19075:2018 Certification: certifies that a manufacturing process has all the requirements for standardization and quality insurance. 


  • Full Spectrum: contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the plant, including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. The full spectrum of active compounds work together to amplify the health benefits of each individual cannabinoid, known as the entourage effect. Full spectrum extracts from hemp also come with a THC content below 0.3%. 

  • Broad Spectrum: contains cannabidiol (CBD) and all the other compounds within the plant, save the THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.

  • CBD Isolate: purest form of the compound, made by pulling it from its natural environment and removing it from all other ingredients.

  • CO2 Extraction: method used to extract CBD concentrates; CO2 gas is pressurized into a a safe liquid and used to extract oils from plants with the advantage of no solvent residue.

  • MCT Oil Extraction: method used to extract CBD concentrates; MCT oil contains saturated fat which helps the body absorb cannabinoids. Using MCT oil allows for a relatively rapid release.
