What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of several different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It can act as a neurotransmitter and is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
How does CBD work?
Cannabidiol (CBD) can act as a neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters help to regulate bodily systems at a cellular level. It has been shown to have effects on a wide array of systems in the human body, such as the immune system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the heart, liver, and kidneys, the epidermis and others. CBD is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Are there traces of THC?
Raw hemp extract may contain small traces of THC; however, all Smilyn Wellness’s products are completely THC-free. We use a patented technology to remove any residual THC found in hemp extract.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Where as marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug, hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, does not cause a high and is not considered to be a drug. Our products undergo a patented process which removes all traces of THC from the product.
What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp seed oil?
Cannabidiol oil is an essential oil extracted from the cannabis plant’s flowers. It contains beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp seed oil, on the other hand, is similar to other seed oils such as corn oil or sesame seed oil and is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds.
What does Broad Spectrum mean?
The term broad spectrum refers to CBDl oil products that contain a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds found in PCR hemp. While many Cannabidiol oil products are made using cannabidiol isolate, Smilyn Wellness’s broad spectrum oil maintains the same concentrations of these beneficial compounds that are found in the original PCR hemp plant.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are what gives cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized by humans for millennia in a healing modality known as aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.

Are there any negative side effects?
