WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bid-i-ol), a prominent naturally occurring class of molecules called cannabinoids found in the plant genus Cannabis Sativa L. CBD comprises up to 40% of the plant and is one of over 60 plus compounds found in cannabis. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied. CBD is a non- psychoactive component of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause a high, unlike THC. Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system which uses these cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells.
WHAT IS CBD OIL?
CBD oil is derived from cannabis plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) while having low levels of THC. At SANO, our CBD oils always have less than 0.2% THC. The cannabidiol (CBD) content of CBD oil varies tremendously, since the manufacturers use a varying assortment of cannabis plants and preparation techniques. We produce CBD oil with a high concentration of CBD and containing ~0.02% THC.
WILL I GET HIGH?
No. At SANO our Hemp Extract products are all made from industrial hemp, which only has trace amounts of THC, so there are no psychoactive effect from taking our CBD products.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and there are more than 85 identified cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant and is the ONLY psychoactive cannabinoid (the ‘high’ feeling). Of the 85+ non-psychoactive cannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known.
What is Full Spectrum?
SANO is considered a full spectrum hemp product. This means that our products provide a full cannabinoid profile that utilizes several different cannabinoids including trace amounts of THC below the federal legal limit of 0.3%.
Is SANO legal?
The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and its derivative CBD) to be a nutritional product since it is derived from industrial hemp plants. If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol.
How should I store SANO products?
We recommend storing our products in a cool, dry location, out of open sunlight. The typical medicine cabinet or pantry should be fine.
When does CBD expire?
The shelf life of CBD oil is 2 years.
Why do you source your hemp from Kentucky instead of Colorado?
Kentucky’s ecology is perfect for growing hemp. The growing season is longer and the soil is richer than Colorado’s, so the quality of the hemp is better. Growing under the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program is also 100% compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill, which means harvesting and distributing is 100% legal at the federal level.
How much CBD should I be using per day?
Sensitivities vary from person to person. Discretion is advised by and for each individual, based on experiential preference. However, as a loose guideline, 5-20 mg per dose and anywhere from 10-200 mg per day is our recommendation.
