Whilst there have been many studies using CBD as a treatment for children, we are not qualified to expressly state whether it is safe for your child. If you’re concerned, it is recommended to ask a health care practitioner knowledgeable of your child’s health issues, and do your own research. We have never seen research showing it is not safe for children, but again, this is an informed decision you have to make. Our policy is not to sell products to customers under 18 years old.
Our products have trace amounts of THC. This low level of THC is not intoxicating, and meets legal requirements to be classified as hemp, but still provides the full spectrum benefits that come when all cannabinoids and terpenes are included in an extract. At the bottom of each product’s description is a lab test that shows relative measures of cannabinoids. Our full spectrum (whole plant) extracts contain many other cannabinoids (CBG, CBC, CBN) and terpenes in addition to the CBD.
CBD will not get you high. It’s true that what may work for one person may have slightly different effects in another. CBD has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. So some users have reported that when they’ve taked too much they feel overly ‘relaxed’ We would love to hear your experiences.
The answer to that question started to unfold as early as 1956, when THC and CBD were being discovered and isolated in Isreal.

It was found by Raphael Mechoulam as well as NIMH researchers William Devane and Dr. Lumir Hanus
Cannabinoid receptors, located throughout the body, are part of the Endocannabinoid system which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. Cannabinoid receptors are of a class of cell membrane receptors under the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily.
Generally it only takes minutes for CBD to enter the blood stream and begin effecting the body. This is however dependent on whether you’re smoking, vaping, or ingesting CBD. Depending on what result you’re aiming for, it’s possible that it can take up to 30 days for you to notice the benefits of using our products. However for some such as pain management it’s possible to notice an immediate effect.
No. On EssentialCannabinoids you’ll find ‘food supplement’ products that contain natural plant cannabinoids.
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a totally natural, non-psychoactive compound (cannabinoid) from the industrial Hemp plant otherwise known as Cannabis sativa L. It’s one among over 100 active cannabinoids in the plant. CBD acts mostly upon the CB2 receptor of the EndoCannabinoid System. CBD is best known and understood to have anti-inflammatory properties.
