CBD (also known as Cannabidiol) is one of about 120 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD isn’t psychoactive, and has been studied for it’s wide range of benefits for the body and mind.
With CBD, you get all the health benefits from cannabis without the high. CBD is simply an active chemical compound, or cannabinoid, that’s found in the cannabis plant. read more
How is hemp different than marijuana? Unlike marijuana, hemp contains extremely low (less than 0.3%) THC. THC is the compound in marijuana that is psychoactive and makes you feel high.
CBD is not a pharmaceutical, meaning it won’t interfere with any other medications. In fact, some studies have shown that CBD can enhance the effectiveness of other medications, such as pain killers.
RESTART CBD is extracted from organically grown Oregon hemp grown and will contain zero to <0.3% THC.
CBD products activate your Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
WHAT IS YOUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
The endocannabinoid system regulates a wide variety of physiological processes, such as memory, mood and appetite. While ingesting CBD elicits an interaction with our internal receptors, it does so in ways that are quite unique to each individual – which is to say – the effects CBD has on you may differ from the effects it has on others.
These differences speak to the complexity of our own physiological processes and current state of wellness. With this in mind, we encourage people to experiment and listen to their own bodies. Different products combined with different ingestion methods will contribute to the effect it has on you. Other naturally occurring compounds found in hemp, like terpenes, also factor in to the equation. Thankfully, we provide detailed lab reports as well as suggested use guidelines with each of our products so you can monitor exactly how much CBD you’re intaking.
Interestingly, CBD is really just the tip of the iceberg in terms of exploring the effects of other cannabinoids. We are really excited to explore other cannabinoids to see what types of health benefits they may have. In addition to CBD products, RESTART CBD offers CBG, CBN, CBC and Delta 8 products.

What happens when the ECS is activated? It’s the only time 2-way communication (homeostasis) is happening within the body. When taking CBD, the body is able to tell the brain exactly where it’s needing more help and assistance.
CBD has the ability to aid those suffering from several ailments, and it’s even useful for healthy people in everyday living. As users continue to report its beneficial therapeutic effects, it’s fair to say that hemp-derived CBD is good for the human body.

Good Luck with your research and individual journey!
There is no fixed recipe or dose when it comes to using CBD oils. What might work for you might not work for someone else. Since we are all biochemically exclusive, it’s best to experiment with a variety of CBD products. Pay attention to your body, and find the “personal product and dose” that work most optimally for you.
Used consistently, CBD may prevent and manage ailments. All in all, it takes about 3-4 months for your body to reach a healthy new equilibrium.
Its effects, however, assume regular use at an effective serving.
You can consume CBD in different forms that fit your lifestyle.
FULL SPECTRUM CBD (CANNABIDIOL) products contain multiple cannabis plant extracts, including essential oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids. They also contain up to 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol,) the cannabinoid in the cannabis plant that produces the ‘high’ feeling in people. However, such a low amount is not strong enough to have significant psychoactive effects.
BROAD SPECTRUM CBD is very similar to full-spectrum CBD in that it contains additional cannabis plant compounds. Most broad-spectrum CBD products have zero or trace amounts of THC.
PURE CBD is the purest form of CBD. It contains no other cannabis plant compounds and contains NO THC. It may be a suitable product for first-time CBD users who wish to experiment with the potential health benefits, without the interference of other cannabis compounds, which may alter the effects.
CBC (CANNABICHROMENE) is classified as one of the ‘big six’ of cannabinoids. CBC is also non-intoxicating, like CBD. CBC has shown very strong potential for providing therapeutic benefits, including for inflammation, stem/progenitor cell function and mood.
CBN (CANNABINOL) has been demonstrated to have an array of therapeutic benefits especially in terms of sedative and body relaxation properties.
CBD PLUS FOR SLEEP makes bed time YOUR time. Our unique terpene-based formula provides for improved restfulness without melatonin or THC.
CBG (CANNABIGEROL) may help with those who struggle to get a better sleep. Stress-related disorders, like stress, anxiety and depression all contribute to the lack of sleep. There has been much CBG research showing eye support, bone growth, slowing bacterial growth including cancer cell growth and so much more.
RAW UNREFINED CBD is the rawest, most potent CBD on the market. Made of 100% unrefined full-spectrum CBD.
You should be careful when purchasing CBD products. Items with a THC-free label may still contain traces of the compound and even small amounts may show up in a drug test.
Whether you are looking for an Happy, Calm or Motivated effect, the new legal THC alternative is the next thing to try. Unlike Delta-9 THC, your mind will remain focused, while you still experience the calming effects.
