What is CBD?

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. With its long-standing history of benefiting overall wellness, CBD has become increasingly popular as a means of support for your body and mind.

In fact, CBD is just one of many cannabinoids found in hemp — and naturally in your body as an “endocannabinoid.”

Why CBD?

In today’s society, it seems our instant inclination is to try to fix every ailment with a pill. But that’s what pharmaceutical companies would prefer as our first response, and what they’ve spent billions of dollars to promote.

With CBD, you’re choosing the natural option instead — one that’s connected to how your body functions already rather than introducing entirely foreign substances. And, because it’s a natural remedy, CBD tends not to create debilitating side effects.

What are the health benefits of CBD?

CBD’s benefits are reaped from its ability to support and interact with your endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system connected to your nervous system — we all have one.

The endocannabinoid system has two main functions that make it especially important to your overall health. The first is to modulate pleasure, energy, and well-being. The second is to slowly guide the body back to alignment in the event of stress or change. For these reasons and more, CBD benefits your overall wellness.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does High Road Edibles ensure high-quality CBD?

    When selecting our Montana CBD, we review the certificate of analysis on all of the extracts from an independent lab first. We are looking for CBD without contaminants, such as pesticides, before we craft our edibles with them.

    Knowing that the hemp we use is grown and extracted with care in Montana gives us peace of mind. There are a lot of big companies trying to capitalize on the demand for CBD extracts, and in our search to find the best product for you, we decided quickly to avoid the sub-par producers out there.

  • Is CBD legal?

    Hemp-derived CBD is legal at the federal level. Our CBD comes from hemp, which is an important detail because you can also get CBD from marijuana, which is not currently legal at the federal level. Hemp is described by the 2018 Farm Bill as having less than 0.3% THC, which is the compound that produces the high associated with marijuana. All High Road Edibles contain no THC. CBD is non-intoxicating and will not generate a high.

    The legal landscape around CBD is changing rapidly at the state level. CBD from industrial hemp is legal in almost every state, but regulations regarding its use vary. It is important that you do your own research and learn how CBD is treated in your state.

  • Do High Road Edibles mints and gummies contain THC or get you high?

    While some other brands’ CBD products contain low-level amounts of THC, High Road Edibles products contain no detectable THC. Thus our products are free of any psychoactive elements.

  • How much CBD should I take?

    Each person is different. We recommend starting low and slowly increasing, which is why our edibles are dosed at smaller increments. Start by taking one mint or gummy and wait 20 minutes for full effect. Continue increasing by one edible depending on your personal needs.

  • What kind of CBD extracts are there?

    Broad spectrum
    Broad-spectrum CBD contains cannabidiol and all the other compounds within the plant, save for THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction.

    In a very simplified manner, broad-spectrum CBD is like a mix between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. It contains the entire spectrum of cannabinoids in hemp except for the THC part.

    Full spectrum
    If a CBD extract is full spectrum, this means it contains all compounds naturally found in the hemp plant, including traces of THC (under 0.3%).

    Although non-psychoactive, full-spectrum CBD differs from broad spectrum because it contains those low levels of THC. As such, taking full spectrum CBD can give you a false positive during a drug test, especially if you consume high doses of CBD oil daily.

    Cannabidiol (CBD) isolate is a pure form of extract that “isolates” CBD from the hemp plant. This extraction process removes all color, flavor and the trace amounts of THC, which makes it a great extract for targeting just the CBD compound.

  • What type of CBD extract does High Road Edibles use?

    High Road Edibles mints use CBD isolate. Our gummies contain broad-spectrum CBD. The type of CBD extract is shown in each product listing on our website.

  • How does High Road Edibles create consistent, reliable products?

    We knew consistency was going to be a critical priority from day one. Our chef led the way by crafting methods to create small batch CBD edibles with very little variance between each batch.

  • How do I know how much CBD is in my High Road Edibles?

    Dosing is shared on the front of each package. We also have included a QR code on the back of each package that will take you directly to the test results for that specific batch. Simply snap a photo of the QR code to learn the precise milligram dosing down to a tenth of a point.

  • What is CBN?

    CBN is another cannabinoid found in hemp. It may look and sound like CBD, but CBN is its own distinct compound with different effects and origins. CBN produces a gently sedative feeling, which is why we’ve included it in our Slumber edibles for better sleep.

  • What are the side effects of CBD?

    While CBD tends to be very easily tolerated because it’s naturally occurring, do be aware that some people still report dry mouth, reduced appetite and drowsiness. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or prescription medication.
