Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a phytocannabinoid most commonly found in high concentrations within certain strains of hemp. CBD is one of at least 113 cannabinoids discovered in the cannabis plant and has beneficial effects without intoxication.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system located inside the human body. It is composed of endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by the body) and the receptors that they bind to, the cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) and the cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2).
This system has been shown to play a role in the regulation of several physiological and cognitive processes in the body.

Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds that are most commonly found in the cannabis plant.
Cannabinoids are produced endogenously by the human endocannabinoid system and they have also been found in other botanical sources, including hops and certain varieties of Echinacea. At least 113 cannabinoids have been isolated from cannabis with two of the most notable ones being cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Because of the wide range of uses for CBD, appropriate serving sizes can vary widely. Your ideal serving size will depend on your body weight, metabolism, individual body chemistry, and other metabolic factors.
For these reasons, we cannot make specific recommendations regarding serving sizes. We recommend starting with a small amount of CBD and gradually increasing the dose until the desired effects have been achieved.
When it comes to CBD oil, there are several available delivery formats. The one that is best for you will depend on your goals and your personal preferences.
Edibles are often one of the most delicious ways to take your CBD oil! With available products like gummies, chewing gum, and flavored drops, you’re bound to find something you like.
CBD edibles are best when you don’t need immediate relief. Edibles need to pass through your body’s digestive system before it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This means that depending on your digestive system and metabolism, it could take up to 60 minutes to feel your CBD dose.
Capsules are a convenient way to take your CBD oil. Simply pop a capsule or two and that’s it. The right dose, every time.
But, like edibles, CBD capsules enter the bloodstream only after passing through your digestive tract. So, again, depending on the speed of your metabolism and how much food is already in your stomach, onset could be slow.
CBD tinctures are a popular way to get CBD into your body. Using CBD drops or a CBD spray gives you greater control over the dose. If you need a little more, or a little less, on any given day, you can easily make that adjustment.
Tinctures are quickly and readily absorbed into the bloodstream. Place the CBD oil under the tongue and it gets directly absorbed through the thin skin into your veins, showing effects in as little as 15 minutes.
Topicals are wonderful for people looking for relief from achy joints and muscles. You can apply CBD topicals to the specific areas you wish to target. Topicals often contain other ingredients that can bring additional benefits like moisturizing and repairing the skin.
CBD topicals take a little longer to go into effect. Generally speaking, topicals can take 25-45 minutes to make an impact.
CBD is found in the hemp plant as Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA), which is a very closely related analog of CBD.
In order to transform CBDA into CBD, a given plant or extract must undergo a process known as decarboxylation. Sometimes, this process is referred to as “activation” because it produces a more biologically active version of the CBD molecule.
Decarboxylation is defined as the removal of a carboxyl group from a given molecule. In the case of CBD, decarboxylation is achieved by heating the material to approximately 110 °C (230 °F). This facilitates the removal of the carboxyl group from the CBDA molecule, leaving CBD as the end product.
CBD meets the World Health Organization’s (WHO) definition of a psychoactive substance. The WHO defines psychoactive substances as ones “that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. cognition or effect.”
While definition can certainly be applied to CBD, it must be noted that CBD is non-intoxicating in its effects. It does not produce the feelings of euphoria, stupor, or loss of control; effects commonly associated with the ingestion of THC. Research suggests that this difference is due to the fact that CBD does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the same way that THC does. In fact, CBD has been shown in some studies to modulate or reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant and hemp oil is a product derived from the leaves, flowers, and stalks of the hemp plant.
Hemp seeds contain non-detectable levels of cannabinoids. By contrast, detectable levels of cannabinoids can be found in the stalks and leaves of hemp, with the highest concentrations of cannabinoids being found in the flowers.
CBD/hemp oil products have a much greater concentration of CBD than hemp seed oil products. Hemp seed oil products commonly contain no therapeutically viable levels of cannabinoids.
Hemp products that contain CBD are currently available in all 50 states and over 40 countries worldwide. We encourage users to frequently check with your local government, police department, or customs office for the most up to date information regarding the legality of CBD in your area before you make a purchase.
This answer should not be considered as legal advice, check with your own local administration.
CBD products are derived from hemp plants. Once the CBD is extracted from the plant, it undergoes a purification and distillation processes that results in a high-quality CBD oil that is free from all solvents.
Although the products on our platform comply with the federally mandated THC limit of less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, this does not necessarily mean that you won’t test positive during a drug test. Drug tests are not uniform and the THC threshold that would yield a positive result is stricter in some tests than in others.
Green Door CBD holds no liability for any positive results on a drug test. We highly recommend not using CBD products if this is a concern to you.
While most CBD products do not require refrigeration, we recommend storing your CBD oil in a cool dry place.
Make sure to shake well before each use.
For isolates, we recommend storing it in a cool dry place away from direct heat and sunlight. Always ensure the cap is closed airtight after each use. Refrigeration is not necessary but may prolong shelf life.
The majority of products listed on the Green Door CBD platform undergo multiple rounds of lab testing for heavy metals and pesticides. These tests are performed to ensure that only the highest quality product makes its way to you.
If you would like specific testing details on a specific product, we encourage you to contact the brand for full details.
For more information on why hemp is tested for heavy metals and pesticides, visit our blog.
Many of the products on our platform undergo high-level testing protocol for heavy metals, pesticides, potency, residual solvents, as well as a quality analysis before being brought to market. These steps are taken to ensure all products meet our demands for quality and safety.
All of the products on our platform exclusively contain vegan-friendly ingredients! Beeswax (used in some balms) and gelatin (in some gel caps - highlighted on specific product pages) are the only components currently in use that would not be considered vegan.
Most of these products are also gluten-free and are free of artificial preservatives.
Green Door CBD and other popular CBD brands are currently available in all 50 states. With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, regulations regarding hemp-derived ingestible cannabinoid products will continue to be updated, so we strongly recommend that you check with your local administration to ensure that the CBD you wish to purchase fully complies with the established laws.
CBD can interact with certain drugs in a manner that is similar to grapefruit.
Research has shown that certain compounds in grapefruit can interact with many common pharmaceutical drugs by inhibiting cytochrome P450 enzymes, a family of liver enzymes that metabolizes these drugs. CBD can also inhibit these enzymes when consumed in high dosages.
We always recommend checking with your physician before starting a new dietary supplement program. If you have received any instructions from a doctor or medical professional regarding grapefruit, CBD should be treated with the same level of care.

We receive many inquiries from all over the world and many times people ask about “CBD, the medical part” of the plant, “not THC, the recreational part” that gets you high.
The truth is, THC has therapeutic properties itself. Scientists at the Scripps Research Center in San Diego reported that THC inhibits an enzyme implicated in the formation of amyloid beta plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s-related dementia. The federal government recognizes a single-molecule THC (Marinol) as an anti-nausea compound and appetite booster, deeming it a Schedule III pharmaceutical with little risk of abuse. But whole plant cannabis, which is the only natural source of THC, continues to be classified as a dangerous Schedule I drug with no medical value.
People who are against the use of cannabis are using all the positive press about CBD to further demonize THC.
The fact is, there is no such thing as a good or bad cannabinoid. Sure, CBD does not make you feel high like THC but that does not make it “good.”
At Green Door CBD, we want you to look beyond the moralistic propaganda and consider the power of whole plant cannabis therapeutics. If you are uncertain about CBD, THC, and what it all means, read our blog for more information. Only after you’ve done the reading will you truly be able to make the right choice for you!
