Frequently asked questions
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in abundance in the cannabis plant. These compounds act on cannabinoid receptor cells throughout the endocannabinoid system to insight various responses.
The endocannabinoid system is a system in the body that contains receptors (such as CB-1 and CB-2 receptors) made to interact with cannabinoids. These natural cannabinoids and their receptors exist in virtually every cell and organ system in the human body. This system has been shown to help regulate appetite, sleep cycles, pain, inflammation response, mood, memory and more. When there is a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system, your systems may be thrown out of balance. CBD is a 100% natural way to correct these chemical deficiencies restoring the system back to a state of health and homeostasis.
The defining difference between cannabis and hemp is the percentage of THC. Cannabis refers to strains of cannabis that contain high levels of THC. Hemp refers to strains of cannabis containing less than 0.3% THC.

The Entourage Effect is the results (the effect) produced from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis. The Entourage Effect refers to the beneficial effect of all these compounds working together as opposed to just one or two of these compounds working in isolation. Basically, the Entourage Effect is the benefit you get from ingesting multiple components of the cannabis plant together instead of ingesting one component at-a-time.
Terpenes are what give plants their specific scents and flavors. For example, the smell of flowers, fruits, and cannabis are all produced by terpenes. The terpenes in cannabis not only produce a specific aroma, but they contribute to the difference between strains of cannabis.
The United States Department of Agriculture does not currently certify any hemp as USDA Organic. However, GX uses 100% organic farming practices with no herbicides or pesticides.
Yes, chromatography testing and third party batch testing ensures accurate levels of phytocannabinoids and confirms the absence of THC. Upon request, you can have the test documents for your batch emailed to you.
To extract CBD from the hemp plant, a CO2 extraction process is used.
The amount of time it takes to feel the effects of CBD depends on each individual. While some may experience the effects within 30 minutes, others may take longer.
