What is CBD?
What does CBD do?
Is Hemp Oil CBD?
CBD is a plant-based cannabinoid sourced primarily from hemp. This compound interacts with the endocannabinoid system or ECS, your body’s natural regulatory system. The ECS is tasked with maintaining homeostasis or balance within your body. Through its interaction, CBD can support greater wellness by positively impacting your stress response, sleep cycles, and soreness and recovery, so you can feel your best every day.*
What is full spectrum hemp oil?
Full spectrum hemp oil or CBD oil refers to a minimally processed extract that contains all the beneficial compounds present in the hemp plant. Humans have been using natural hemp for their health and nutrition for thousands of years.
Always made from true agricultural hemp and not hybridized marijuana, our CBD-rich full spectrum hemp extracts more closely match our shared history with hemp. True hemp plants contain more than just CBD, minor cannabinoids, and terpenes. They also contain much more of the plant’s fatty acids and other nutrients. Taking a CBD product, such as CBD gummies, capsules, or oils, helps to balance your endocannabinoid system and enhance health.*

Below are some common questions we hear frequently asked, regarding Shop by Product.
This is the most common question we get about CBD - and probably the most difficult to answer. That’s because everyone’s ideal CBD routine will be different, incorporating a range of potential CBD products, like CBD gummies, softgels, and CBD balms. Everyone’s body is different, and everyone’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is unique. This makes it challenging to know which products work best for you without trying them for yourself. Here is a quick summary of our popular CBD product formula lines to help you choose your new favorites. If you still aren’t sure, there is a link to our helpful product quiz below.

Yes. These are the two main ways of taking or applying CBD oil products each day. You can use CBD topicals like balms and creams that are applied to the skin, or you can orally take a CBD ingestible like a softgel, oil, or gummy.
Some people find the best path to greater wellness is taking a CBD ingestible orally to work from the inside and applying a topical to work from the outside for complete CBD oil benefits.
We often get questions regarding the reasons why customers should use CBD each day and whether it can help with any specific medical issues they might be facing. While the scientific research that has been done on CBD is immense, and continues to grow, more clinical work needs to be done. To remain compliant with regulations, we do not make medical claims as to the health benefits for CBD-rich hemp extracts and you should be concerned when you find a company that does – because this is evidence that they avoid FDA regulations meant to keep consumers like you safe. These types of claims are allowed for prescription drugs only.
+PlusCBD ingestible products are regulated as dietary supplements and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. CBD and the other ingredients in a full spectrum hemp extract have been shown to be helpful in enhancing health and restoring balance and homeostasis to the human body. This aligns with the long use of hemp throughout human history for its health benefits.
For most people, no. The remarkable safety profile for CBD and hemp extracts is noted in almost every scientific review you’ll read, most recently in the CBD oil report from the World Health Organization. That being said, everyone’s system is unique, and we always recommend talking to your doctor before starting any new dietary supplement and to discontinue use if you notice any negative effects.
One striking thing for us is the low number of adverse effects reports that we get compared to the millions of +PlusCBD products shipped every year. We’re proud that, with the superior quality of our extracts, our ingredients, and our formulations, the safety of our products is part of what makes us America’s favorite CBD oil company.
CV Sciences sources our hemp extract and CBD ingredients from trusted sources with a proven record of quality. The hemp in +PlusCBD is grown from EU-certified hemp seeds by farmers with a long history going back centuries of cultivating the highest quality hemp on their fertile soil, as well as from domestic American farmers on the forefront of bringing hemp cultivation back to the U.S.
Grown using only water, earth, and sunlight, these hemp plants are cared for by our experienced cultivation partners. Once harvested, the plants undergo extraction by CO2 - a method chosen for its safety, environmental friendliness, and CO2’s ability to pull out the wide array of bioactive molecules available in the hemp plant. We take a lot of pride in the exceptional quality of our CBD-rich full spectrum hemp extracts.
Because we use true agricultural hemp instead of hybridized marijuana, our products are far below the federal legal limit of 0.3% THC. You can see the specific testing results for your product on our Certificates of Analysis page.
CBD and the other ingredients in a full spectrum hemp extract have the potential to enhance your body’s homeostasis for better mental, emotional, and physical health.* CBD works partially via our endocannabinoid system and interacts with our important neurotransmitters and other biochemical tools. CBD and other cannabinoids head for the parts of the body and mind where an imbalance is present and help to restore homeostasis there. Common reasons consumers reach for CBD are to support stress response, sleep cycles, and soreness recovery.* The most important thing we can do for our health is to restore balance - and that seems to be the thing we hear the most about the effects of CBD-rich hemp extracts like +PlusCBD.
