FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is just one of many different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD has many beneficial properties and is commonly used to promote overall wellness.
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes homeostasis.
CBD’s effects are a result of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly, most often through activation of outside receptors and interaction with enzymes
Many people use CBD to support the body’s natural systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some for specific purposes such as supporting a good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints.
Hemp plants and marijuana plants are both the same species. Legally, hemp is defined as a cannabis plant that contains 0.3% or less THC, while marijuana is a cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3% THC. CBD can be derived from both hemp and marijuana plants. LA Fresh CBD is derived from non-GMO hemp plants that are federally legal throughout the United States.

No. All LA Fresh products show no detectable THC on their lab reports. We use patented technology to remove any residual THC found in our hemp extract.
The term broad-spectrum refers to CBD oil products that contain a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds found in hemp. While many CBD oil products are made using CBD isolate, LA Fresh broad-spectrum oils maintain concentrations of the beneficial compounds that are found in the original hemp plant. Our broad-spectrum CBD oil products contain no detectable THC, as shown in our lab reports.
Full-spectrum CBD oil is very similar to broad-spectrum CBD — the exception is that full-spectrum oil usually retains the trace amounts of THC present in the hemp plant. Legally, though, this amount of THC must always be less than 0.3%.
No. Unlike marijuana and THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and is extremely unlikely to cause a high.
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness. If your intention is to remain alert, this may be considered an unwanted side effect and therefore large servings should be avoided.
