What is CBD?

Why take cannabidiol?
CBD Benefits

CBD is cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. In the past few years CBD has become one of the most buzzed-about topics in the natural wellness space because it may support a sense of peace and well-being in humans. Don’t worry, it’s not intoxicating, so you can add CBD to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.

 

Here at High Society Relief, we are dedicated to helping each person become the healthiest version of themselves through the power of plants. Our wide variety of CBD products were selected with your busy life in mind. That said, we know that all the information out there about cannabidiol can get overwhelming. Don’t worry. We’ll serve as a resource for you as you learn more about how CBD can support you.

 

We offer hemp-derived CBD in many forms, and are happy to help you find the right product for you. 

You may have seen people use CBD oils, also known as CBD tinctures or CBD hemp oil. These oils are popular because they are absorbed in the mouth and take effect relatively quickly. 

However, we offer a range of products designed to plug into any lifestyle, including CBD gummies, capsules and softgels, topicals, coffee, bath bombs, and more!

 

Why do people take CBD?


Cannabinoids 
& your body

Some people take CBD because they need support for specific reasons while others want to enhance their overall well-being. To understand the benefits of CBD, you need to understand what it does in the body. 

CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are abundant in hemp and work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Studies show the ECS is involved in a lot of important jobs. These jobs include regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule and more. Basically, the ECS helps keep your body in homeostasis.

The benefits of taking CBD
Cannabidiol's role in health & well-being

The simplest benefit of taking hemp-derived CBD is that it can help manage ordinary, everyday stress. That’s something we all need. Whether you’re an office worker, a manual laborer, a parent, a teacher, an athlete, a weekend warrior, or some combination of the above, life can become stressful! Studies indicate that cannabidiol can not only help you feel more balanced, but can support your body on its journey to optimal health. In short, hemp-derived CBD is a plant-based way to support your well-being.

 

What is homeostasis?

Homeostasis is a biological balance in your body’s natural rhythms. Sometimes it’s described as equilibrium in your system. Homeostasis has a big impact on your overall well-being. New research is always emerging exploring the link between homeostasis, and physical, mental, or even emotional health. People take CBD because they want to support their ECS, and all the work it does to keep your body in homeostasis.


Your body actually makes its own cannabinoids. These are called endocannabinoids. If you’ve ever experienced a runner’s high, or the thrill of singing along to your favorite song, you’ve felt the work of endocannabinoids. When plants make this type of compound, they’re called phytocannabinoids. CBD is one of over a hundred types of phytocannabinoids found in hemp plants, and taking CBD is an easy way to support your body’s own production of endocannabinoids.

Will CBD get me high?


The difference between CBD vs. THC


Hemp

The short answer to the question ‘will CBD get me high?’ is no. CBD is non-intoxicating and will not get you high. We mentioned above that hemp plants have over one hundred types of compounds in them. One of these is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the compound that causes the high associated with cannabis. Green Roads’ CBD products are made with cannabidiol from hemp plants that meet the legal qualifications for industrial hemp. One qualification is that the plant contains less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. This minimal amount is already not enough to cause a high, hence the legality of industrial hemp.

 

Is there any THC in our CBD products?

The answer: it depends on the type of extract in your Green Roads CBD product. Basically, the extract type refers to whether the product in question is made with just CBD, or other cannabinoids and aromatic compounds known as terpenes.

Why does this matter?

It has to do with a phenomenon known as the entourage effect, which is when multiple cannabinoids and terpenes synergize in your body for greater wellness potential. The entourage effect makes sense in terms of nature. After all, cannabidiol is never an isolated powder by itself in the wild. It’s always present in a hemp plant together with aromatic terpenes, and other cannabinoids like cannabigerol, (CBG) cannabinol (CBN) and cannabichromene (CBC). There are three extraction types you should know about:

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad spectrum CBD products are made with cannabidiol and a broad range of other cannabinoids. These products have non-detectable levels of THC, which is a scientifically accurate way of saying they have essentially none. The broad range of cannabinoids is intended to offer you the entourage effect.

Full Spectrum CBD

Full spectrum CBD products are made with a full range of natural cannabinoids and terpenes. This includes up to the legal limit of 0.3% THC. When taken properly, full-spectrum CBD products are still non-intoxicating. They’re formulated with the intent of giving you the most holistic entourage effect.

Isolate CBD

These products are made with just CBD, no other cannabinoids from hemp.

 

How should I take CBD?

We offer different types of CBD products to help people add this hemp-derived compound to their daily routine in whatever way that works best for them.

CBD Oils

Green Roads CBD Oil is in a league of its own. First of all, many brands just buy a mass-produced CBD oil from an industrial manufacturer and slap their logo on it. Green Roads CBD oil was designed by our co-founder, a licensed compounding pharmacist. The CBD comes from hemp grown on American farms, and the base of vegetable glycerin, sunflower oil, MCT oil and hemp seed oil is formulated for better absorption. Enjoy the sweet taste of Apple Kiwi Bliss CBD oil, refreshing Mint Breeze, or our original blend. You can buy our CBD oil in broad-spectrum or full-spectrum extract types.

Both our full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD oil come in three strengths in order to help you find the best serving of CBD for you:

  • Mild - 10mg of CBD per 1ml in a 30ml bottle for a total of 300mg of CBD

  • Medium - 25mg of CBD per 1ml in a 30ml bottle for a total of 750mg of CBD

  • Mighty - 50mg of CBD per 1ml in a 30ml bottle for a total of 1500mg of CBD

CBD Edibles

Green Roads makes the best-tasting CBD gummies in the industry. Our Relax Bears offer a mouthwatering sweet n’ sour experience in an assortment of flavors. Enjoy a truly indulgent experience with our CBD chocolate bar. This 62% cacao, small-batch, artisanal bar is vegan friendly and offers a total of 180mg of CBD. Fun fact: dark chocolate already naturally has cannabinoids. We just figured out a way to create an even more blissful bite. ;)

CBD Topicals

Our CBD topicals combine cannabinoids with soothing natural elements that form the base of many popular muscle and joint relief creams. Enjoy on-the-spot support from cannabinoids with cooling action from menthol or heating action from pepper compounds. In our Heat Relief and Cool Relief products, we use a roll-on tube for speedy, no-mess application. Our CBD Skin Cream soothes your red, dry and itchy skin with a base of cleansing bentonite clay, revivifying avocado oil, and more supportive botanicals.

Experience our Peace bath bomb made with CBD and Lavender, or our CBD, citrus, and lavender blend in Uplift. Unwind with CBD and Ylang Ylang, Refresh yourself with CBD, peppermint and lemon, or Relax into a bath of CBD and eucalyptus. These combinations of cannabidiol and essences let you transform your tub into your own CBD-themed spa. Pair your spa experience with a CBD essential oil of your choice, and you have the ideal treat.

CBD Supplements

We offer CBD supplements to offer a clean, one-step way to get your daily CBD. Many people already take vitamins and supplements in pill form, which makes CBD capsules and softgels a seamless addition to their day.


You can also target specific aspects of your wellness routine with our CBD Sleep Capsules and CBD Relax Capsules, both of which are 100% vegan. The Relax Capsules combine CBD with GABA and 5-HTP to help you decompress. The Sleep Capsules are made with melatonin to support a good night’s rest.

CBD Pets

We already talked about how CBD supports your body because of the endocannabinoid system. Your pet is a mammal, just like you! This means your dog or cat has an endocannabinoid system. CBD can be a great way to support your pet when he or she is stressed out about thunderstorms, trips to the vet, new house guests, or other situations. CBD is also an option when aging becomes a challenge for your pet too. We offer pet CBD drops suitable for cats, and small, medium or large dogs.
