CBD Q & A

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of over 100 naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis Sativa plant and is the dominant cannabinoid in hemp. Though marijuana comes from the same species, it is legally considered a separate variety because it contains more than 0.3% THC content, unlike hemp.

What does CBD do?

CBD has been found to mimic your own body's naturally occurring cannabinoids called endocannabinoids that work through a variety of complex actions on receptors within your body's endocannabinoid system (ECS).

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The ECS is a network of enzymes, receptor sites, and endocannabinoids (produced by the body) that is responsible for maintaining balance across various bodily systems. CBD is believed to produce its therapeutic effect by interacting with the ECS.

How is CBD taken?

While there are many ways to take CBD, there is no one right or best way. It is important to try different methods and see what works for you. The most common ways to take CBD include applying it topically, consuming it orally, or inhaling it.

Why does CBD absorption matter?

It starts with debunking the common misconception that the more milligrams a product contains the more effective (and expensive) it must be. Your body only absorbs a fraction of the CBD found in most oil-based products, product, due to the product's particle size being too large. A product with better absorption improves its effect and lowers your cost.

Will CBD get me high?

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant, which means that you will not feel "high" after use.

Why is the Versea CBD line different?

Versea is manufactured using patented and proprietary formulation technologies and made following the same FDA Good Manufacturing Practices used to regulate the production of pharmaceutical products.
