CBD is one of more than 80 active cannabinoid chemicals in hemp plants. Unlike its well-known sibling, THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
CBD binds to the cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. CBD acts as a potent antioxidant and works with different receptors in our brain, gut, and immune system. More precisely, it activates the cannabinoid receptors rather than interacting with them directly.
CBD acts as stimuli for the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, gut, and immune system to support mental and physical health. Ingesting this potent antioxidant also activates the endocannabinoid system (ECS) located in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. The ECS is perhaps one of the most valuable biological systems supporting you from day-to-day. It is primarily made of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors, which are found in various tissues throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks to maintain your body’s delicate balance through the ups and downs of life.
The ECS contains two main types of receptors, cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2).
These receptors help balance and support the following: healthy heart, muscles, joints, bone health, a sense of calm, and daily stresses.
We source hemp from our farm, Gorilla FarmCo™, which uses sustainable organic agricultural practices. Gorilla FarmCo™ owns and operates more than 1,500 acres of farmland and has farming partners in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, and Oregon.
We use a proprietary supercritical CO2 process to extract CBD oil from our organically grown hemp. This method results in less than .03% THC in the whole plant full-spectrum CBD oils, and non-detectable THC levels in the pure CBD oils.
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.
NO, CBD does not get you high. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effect that is commonly associated with marijuana.
CBD can prevent THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors. CBD has not demonstrated toxicity in the body; however, it is highly reactive with the body’s Endocannabinoid System.
The use of CBD has shown to be non-toxic and safe for human and animal consumption and is well tolerated even at higher doses.
Currently, there is much ambiguity and confusion about the legality of CBD at the federal and state level. In short, the answer is “it depends.” Generally speaking, CBD products that come from cannabis (or medical marijuana) are only legal in states where marijuana is legal.
CBD products derived from hemp are legal in all 50 states (Note the keyword “hemp-derived”— since hemp typically contains THC content of less than 0.3%). However, individual states have different rules about precisely who, and under what conditions, can access CBD products. Many states have laws progressing through their state legislatures right now to regulate the industry. We recommend that you check your state laws on the current status of CBD.
Green Gorilla CBD should be taken sublingually (orally under the tongue) and held for approximately 30-60 seconds. When starting a new regimen, we suggest that you start with a low potency and gradually increase your intake of your CBD over a few days while observing the effects. Adjust your dosage based on how you feel.
Apply liberally to sore, achy muscles and joints. Gently massage onto skin. As an herbal balm, apply, as needed to chest, neck, and back.
Green Gorilla offers two effective styles of Hemp CBD Oil. Both are great on their own, but they are even better taken together!
Whole Plant Full-Spectrum: It offers 90+ enhanced cannabinoids and terpenes that work together to create the entourage effect. Our whole plant full-spectrum products contain 25% active CBD and are best used for daily well-being. Our full- spectrum oils are extracted to have less than 0.3% THC, such a small amount that you will never feel psychoactive effects.
Pure CBD: CBD is the active healing compound that helps to heal the body. Our pure CBD contains no THC and provides reliable support with quick and effective bioavailability.
