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.
