What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of science's newest and most exciting discoveries. The ECS regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses and cognitive function among many other beneficial effects on one's well-being. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally—no small task!

Why would hemp (instead of marijuana) be grown for cannabidiol (CBD)?

Industrial hemp is already rich in CBD and naturally low in THC, whereas most marijuana is just the opposite (high THC, low CBD). Our industrial hemp is considered Cannabis sativa L., although we have developed our own unique cultivars of this particular type of industrial hemp. Through a combination of these unique cultivars, advanced plant genetics, and cutting-edge growing techniques, an exceptionally high percentage of CBD can be produced naturally and consistently in the hemp plant. When CBD hemp oil is extracted from these hemp cultivars—which can be grown in dozens of countries and imported to the USA absolutely legally—it doesn't make legal or practical sense to obtain CBD from marijuana.

Will CBD help me with my illness?

Due to FDA regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not CBD can help with specific ailments. We do, however, suggest that you conduct your own research.

Will CBD help me if I'm healthy?

Each individual is unique and has different wellness goals they are interested in addressing through the consumption of our product. Although our founders are medical professionals, we cannot make medical claims about the benefits of our product. The product sold from this website is considered nutritional supplement or food (according to FDA guidelines) however, the feedback we have received from a variety of consumers has been tremendously positive. We encourage you to discuss CBD with your physician or healthcare practitioner if you have any specific health-related questions or concerns. There are also many independent, peer-reviewed studies about CBD available on the Internet.

Are CBD and THC the same thing?

No, they are different compounds. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, but THC is the cannabinoid that gets you "high". CBD is not psychoactive like THC, meaning it won't get you "high."

Can I get high from CBD products?

Our ^CBD comes from carefully-cultivated hemp plants—not marijuana—which is why it is legal for us to import and use this natural ^CBD oil. Our supply partners spent years developing special cultivars of the hemp that produce naturally high levels of CBD and only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users the "high" feeling. In comparison to hemp, most recreational cannabis plants have between 5% to over 20% THC.

Can you make any claims about what CBD can do?

No. CanChew® is a gum and as such is considered a food product. The CBD in CanChew® is a natural constituent of industrial hemp oil.
