An Introduction to CBD

1What is CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a natural occurring compound found in all cannabis plants. CBD comes from the Hemp plant which does not give any psychoactive effects, unlike its sister plant Marijuana that produces THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. Hemp CBD offers pain relief without the “high” known to Marijuana from THC.

The short video “What is Hemp” describes the extensive scientific research performed on CBD.

2Why Our CBD?

We are organic hemp farmers from Silverton, Oregon and we believe in sustainable farming practices. As our name states, Whole Circle, everything is inter-connected: soil, water, and air. We believe outdoor hemp cultivation has many benefits. Hemp has a small carbon footprint, it is a water-resistant plant that requires little or no pest management, it cleans the soil and sequesters CO2 which is why hemp is used in many areas to clean contaminated soil. These are reasons we also believe you should know your hemp farmer and where it comes from.

Our hemp is certified Organic through Certified Kind. The hemp is grown from May to October each year and we treat our plants with individual care. We strongly believe in using a whole plant extraction when we extract the oil from our hemp. These oils include the CBD along with the Chlorophyll and creates a thick black paste which is used to make our healing products.

Our products contain:
  • No GMO's
  • No Isolates
  • No Pesticides
  • No Nano Technology
3What are known Health Benefits of CBD?

The most common benefits are when used as sleep aids, anti-inflammatory, anxiety relief, and pain relief for muscles and joints. There are many studies showing positive treatments for epilepsy, fights against cancer, skin ailments, Parkinson’s disease, and as an anti-depressant. The list of health benefits are large and just a quick search on Google will show a mass amount of medicinal effects.

4Will I pass a Drug Test?

All Whole Circle Farms products do not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) levels higher than 0.3% THC. We follow all regulations when growing hemp to ensure the THC levels are within the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture guidelines. CBD is considered to be undetectable in drug tests however it is recommended that all consumers concerned about drug screening do additional research.

5Can CBD interact with other medications?

Always consult a doctor before taking any new products including CBD.

6What Do I need to Know When Choosing a CBD Product?

Not all CBD is created equal. At Whole Circle Farms we believe you need to know where your hemp is grown. Hemp can be used to clean the soil from a toxic spill as it absorbs everything from the ground along with the nutrients. This is why we recommend CBD from an Organic Hemp Farm. We also recommend CBD from a whole plant extraction process. Full Spectrum products contain all naturally occurring compounds from the plant including terpenes, CBD, and THC. Broad Spectrum products contain most naturally occurring compounds including terpenes and CBD, but do not contain one component - THC. We frown on any products made from CBD Isolate as the process used to create these chemically pure isolated cannabinoids is toxic to us and our society.

7What is the difference between CBD and THC?

Both the Marijuana plant and the Hemp plant come from the Cannabis species, however they are grown for different reasons. Marijuana produces THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, a psychoactive cannabinoid compound. Hemp produces CBD, or Cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound which has medicinal values. THC levels in the Hemp plant must remain below 0.3% so you do not get the "high" associated with Marijuana.
