CBD stands for cannabidiol and is the main active ingredient in hemp. It is only found in the leaves, stalks, and flowers of hemp. Though both are derived from the cannabis plant, CBD ingestion does not result in a “high” like THC.

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 of these tissues, 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 a healthy heart, muscles, joints, bones, a sense of calm, and daily stress maintenance.
Studies regarding the use of CBD have shown it to be nontoxic, safe for humans, and well tolerated even at higher doses.
CBD is not intended for use under the age of 18. If you have a medical condition or are currently taking any medications, we recommend consulting your physician first. CBD products should not be taken if you are pregnant or nursing.
CBD is the active healing compound that helps to heal the body. At Green Gorilla™, we offer two effective types of hemp CBD oil. Both are great on their own but are even better when taken together!
- Offers 90+ enhanced cannabinoids and terpenes that work together to create the entourage effect
- Contains 25% active CBD
- Is best used for daily well-being
- Extracted to have less than 0.3% THC, meaning you will never experience psychoactive side effects
- Contains no THC
- Provides reliable support with quick and effective bioavailability
CBD acts like a stimulus for the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, gut, and immune system. These receptors help 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.
Unlike THC, CBD does not interact with our endocannabinoid system directly.
The main difference between hemp seed oil and CBD oil is that hemp seed oil does not contain CBD. Hemp seed oil is often marketed like CBD to confuse customers when in actuality it is used in different kinds of products for its dietary fat benefits.
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 and has not demonstrated toxicity in the body. It is, however, highly reactive within the body’s endocannabinoid system.
The answer is “it depends.” At this time, the legality of CBD is being heavily debated at both the federal and state level. Many states have unique rules regulating who, and under what conditions, may access CBD products.
CBD products that come from cannabis (or medical marijuana) are only legal in states where marijuana is legal, whereas CBD products derived from hemp are legal in all 50 states. The key difference here is “hemp-derived” CBD typically contains less than 0.3% of THC.
We recommend checking your state laws regarding CBD.

Exposure to air and contaminants are major contributors to rapid oil degradation. Tinctures using a dropper delivery system expose their product to air every time the bottle is opened for use.
At Green Gorilla™, we’ve opted to use a pump for our CBD oils because it minimizes oil exposure to air and other contaminants, thus increasing the shelf life and overall potency.
