What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol which is one of the major cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Sacred Wellness CBD is produced from industrial hemp and extracted using a CO2 extraction process, here in the USA.
How does CBD work in the body?
CBD works in the body by activating receptors in the brain and nervous system – the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It affects different receptors to THC and affects many receptors which are responsible for the regulation of many parts of the body’s systems.
Will I get high from it?
A. No, you will not get high from consuming CBD. It is made entirely and only from industrial hemp, and does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Additionally, cannabidiol actually has the property of being anti-psychoactive.
How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
A. At the right dosage, it typically takes between 20 and 30 minutes for the CBD effects to be noticeable. As CBD has no psychoactive component, there is no ‘high’. You may experience a reduction in pain, reduced tremor, a sense of calm. It does depend on why you are taking CBD oil and whether you are taking enough to combat the symptoms you have and whether CBD has an effect on you.
What are the effects of CBD?
The effects of CBD will vary from person to person. It will depend on the amount taken, the method of application and the condition which they are trying to alleviate.

What is a CBD Tincture?
A “Tincture” is substance is suspended or dissolved in another liquid. Usually alcohol but many volatile oils are also used. Generally alcohol is used to make CBD Tinctures in order to reduce viscosity. Viscosity reduction helps absorption of CBD into the body. It also allows a more concise dosage as CBD oil is very viscous/thick and hard to portion out into doses. Our herbal tinctures are made with coconut oil.
What are Cannabinoids?
So what are cannabinoids anyway?
Scientists have identified close to 500 phytochemicals in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids.
Each cannabinoid has its own individual properties, which is creating excitement in the scientific community. Besides terpenoids and cannabinoids, hemp contains many other vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenol antioxidants, flavonoids and essential fatty acids. Hemp CBD has also been shown to influence the production of anandamide through the endocannabinoid system–the “bliss molecule”!
While isolated cannabinoids have their own characteristic properties, the different compounds have synergistic effects when the whole symphony of phytonutrients are consumed together. Synergy means that the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual parts.
