What is CBD (cannabidiol)?
CBD is one of more than 113 identified chemical compounds, or cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant species. It is a major, non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid (i.e. plant produced compound that has no ‘mind-altering’ effects). CBD is produced in large concentrations in the cannabis plant species, and can also be found in other plants such as hops.

How does CBD help with skin problems?
All humans, and many other animals, have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), an endogenous system that regulates biological balance, or homeostasis. There are endocannabinoid receptors found throughout the body and skin. Applying CBD topically targets a localized bodily response. Direct interaction with skin receptors through CBD skincare releases the compounds anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
The ECS consists of three key elements: 1. Cannabinoid Receptors (CB1 and CB2), 2. Endocannabinoids (chemical compounds produced by the body) and 3. Metabolic Enzymes (produced to break down endocannabinoids). Phytocannabinoids, such as CBD and THC, interact with the ECS by mimicking biological receptor responses.
Can I get high from Ohana products?
