What is CBD?
CBD and other cannabinoids are a natural part of all living organisms. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.

How does CBD work?
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.
CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions.
CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.
Researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor.
Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.

Why do people take CBD?
It has been shown in blind test studies, that CBD supports a normal healthy state which can help the body maintain normal levels of inflammation. Inflammation is the cause of many chronic conditions leading to pain.
People who take CBD report a healthier, natural state.
Does CBD get you high?
No, CBD is non-intoxicating. Full spectrum CBD products may contain up to .3% THC, which is not enough to cause intoxication. Pure CBD isolate contains zero THC. If you are concerned with a positive test result for THC, it is recommended that you only use CBD isolate products, such as our delicious Cópohe Cherry Drops.
Which CBD products can I trust?
Seek out only known and trusted sources of CBD. Colorado Power Hemp uses only 100% locally-sourced Colorado hemp products, from established sources registered with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. All product is third party tested for purity and potency.
What is a “full spectrum” CBD product?
Full spectrum preserves the entire cannabinoid profile of the hemp plant, and includes all the cannabinoids from the raw plant. The overall effectiveness of full spectrum is bolstered by what is called the “entourage effect”. For optimum effect, full spectrum may be best for you. Taking a full spectrum CBD product will not get you high, but THC drug test results cannot be assured.
Colorado Power Hemp has full spectrum tinctures and soft gels in varying potency.
What potency is best for me?
Excellent question, and you may be the best person to answer that question. Some people benefit from large, daily doses of CBD, and others may benefit from smaller doses. Others still will take several small doses throughout the day.
Sometimes less is more, as far as the potency of a single serving is concerned.
