What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, the main active ingredient found in the hemp plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance that has many health benefits. Unlike THC, the main chemical found in marijuana, CBD does not make you feel intoxicated. It’s also important to know that hemp seed oil contains no CBD, as CBD can be found only in the leaves, stalks and flowers of the hemp plant.
CBD comes from the non-intoxicating hemp plant. Hemp itself is a phenomenal plant known for its hundreds of uses and for its natural botanical properties from extracting CBD and other cannabinoids. Hemp is a sustainable crop that doesn’t require a lot of water and maintenance and is known for its abilites to remove carbon from the air and clean soil.
Many people integrate CBD into their daily health routine as a natural way to support their body’s overall balance and find a sense of calm, focus, relief from everyday stresses, aid in recovery and help with their sleep cycle.
CBD can help replenish the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is is responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the body, or an optimal state of balance and equilibrium. CBD can help to replenish the ECS by interacting with cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, promoting optimal wellness and a sense of calm and wellbeing. Our bodies naturally produce Endocannabanoids when we exercise and you feel that sudden burst of energy, those are the endocannabanoids working in your body.
In 2016, Green Gorilla became the first hemp CBD company to be certified organic by the USDA. Our products are 100% USDA certified organic, or certified organic made with organic ingredients, which designates that the product has 70% or more certified organic ingredients. Many brands claim they sell organic CBD, yet they lack products that have been verified and certified USDA organic with the official seals. This certification ensures that the ingredients used to make the product were cultivated, processed, and manufactured using the highest standard of organic techniques.
Gorilla FarmCo begins to plant our hemp in late spring and it is grown through summer using organic and sustainable agricultural practices. We plant our crop directly in the ground outdoors and use organic soil amendments, clean aquifer water the sun to produce a healthy organic hemp crop.
After our organic hemp plants have been harvested, CBD is extracted using Co2 and organic ethanol to ensure that you are safe and healthy. Many other CBD brands used toxic solvents and chemicals which can leave residue in the oils and CBD products you consume and use.
Organic ingredients ranging from turmeric, extra virgin olive oil, lavender, and more are formulated with CBD and made into our blend of botanic CBD oils, CBD topicals, CBD gummies, and CBD pet products. We manufacture our products in FDA Registered and/or USDA Certified Organic facilities, which ensure adherence and compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) procedures and standards. Manufacturing to cGMP provides the quality and control guidelines set by the FDA to produce and distribute finished products to consumers.
We use third-party lab testing for all of our products to ensure that there are no leftover pesticides, microbials, or heavy metals in your product. QR codes and lab tests are posted on the packaging of our products and online for easy access.

WHAT ARE THE
BENEFITS OF CBD?
Everyday Wellness Support
Supports Mood and Focus
Choosing the right CBD product for you has a lot to do with your preferences and desired effects. An excellent place to start is with infused edible products, like our Vegan Gorilla Gummies. Each gummy has 5mg of active CBD so you can start slow and build up to your ideal dose. Plus, our CBD gummies are certified organic and kosher, and they taste amazing.
For a dose you can easily customize to your preference and for faster absorption, CBD oils are the way to go. Green Gorilla offers both pure and whole plant CBD oils in a variety of different strengths. Ingesting CBD offers a more whole-body effect, while CBD topicals can provide relief for specific, localized areas. We recommend trying a variety of different delivery methods to find what works best for you.
Another thing to consider when choosing a CBD product is dosage. Your ideal dosage will largely depend on what effects you’re looking for and which delivery method you choose. There’s no one size fits all dose, everyone has their own unique body chemistry and needs. A good rule of thumb is to start low and go slow.
WHAT TYPE OF CBD SHOULD I TAKE?
CBD oils are one of the most popular types of delivery methods. Oils are generally taken sublingually, or under the tongue. They bypass the digestive system and are absorbed quickly and completely through the mouth. This delivery method is ideal for fast, whole-body effects. CBD is fat soluble, so oil makes it easier for your body to absorb. Another perk of CBD oil is that it’s very easy to tailor your dose to your exact needs and preferences. Green Gorilla offers a full line of both pure and whole plant full-spectrum CBD oils in a variety of potencies to make it easy to find your perfect strength. Our CBD oils feature a calibrated pump to guarantee consistent and easy dosing. This also prevents having to open the bottle, which preserves the oil more effectively than a dropper.
CBD topicals are applied and absorbed through the skin. Topicals can come in a variety of forms such as balms, lotions, sprays, etc. They are ideal for localized issues in specific areas of the body. However, up to 50% of CBD absorbs into the bloodstream through the skin. The effects of CBD topicals can be felt rather quickly. Green Gorilla’s topical CBD balms are infused with healing botanicals for soothing relief.
CBD edibles or ingestibles are a convenient delivery method option that provide long-lasting effects, as well as a longer onset time. Green Gorilla’s delicious berry flavored CBD gummies are vegan and contain 5mg of pure CBD in each gummy for easy dosing.
Green Gorilla’s vegan CBD Capsules are easy to use, convenient, and effective for quick support and relief. These herbal capsules are formulated using organic and natural ingredients to maintain potency and provide you with daily support for your body and mind. Defense, Sleep, Inflamend, Relax, and Balance CBD capsules each include plant-based ingredients that target your specific needs.
CBD for Pets
Pet owners who trust and love our products say that CBD supplements and dog treats help maintain a strong foundation of overall health and wellness. We often hear that our furry friends are experiencing relief from everyday hip and joint discomforts, as well as finding a sense of calm. You can start with our CBD pet oils from pure to full spectrum for fast and effective relief. Our CBD dog treats are great for a quick and tasty pet snack, while our CBD pet balms are great for topical soothing absorption.
