Here, we outline just that, along with more of your CBD FAQs below.

What is CBD?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is one of the many chemical compounds that make up the cannabis plant.
How does CBD work?
In the human body, there are cannabinoid receptors known as CB1, and CB2. CB1 receptors are mostly concentrated in the brain, while CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral tissues and cells of the immune system.
The communicating system between CB1 and CB2 receptors and receptors found in Cannabis compounds is known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). When CBD interacts with CB1 or CBD2 receptors it can help to regulate the activity of certain cells, bringing them back to a normal level, which helps reduce inflammation and provide pain relief.
Are CBD and hemp seed oil the same?
In short, no. Hemp oil is made only from the seeds of the hemp plant. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for your skin, but hemp seed oil doesn’t contain CBD.
CBD oil is made from a variety of parts of the hemp plant including its stalks and flowers.
Will it make you high?
Marijuana and hemp are two varieties of the plant species Cannabis Sativa. Hemp contains less than 0.3% THC or Tetrahydrocannabidiol, the compound in the marijuana plant most commonly associated with euphoria-like effects. So, no, you won’t get high.
Will you pass a drug test?
CBD doesn’t show up in drug tests, so you don’t need to worry about failing drug tests if you take CBD products.
Which HATH product is right for you?
All HATH products are carefully crafted to give you the optimal benefits that hemp-CBD has to offer and are designed to be complementary. Each product has a specific goal, so you can choose one for a targeted approach, or combine all three.
