Frequently Asked Questions


Hemp 101
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa L plant and refers to the non-intoxicating (less than 0.3% THC) strains. Both Hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, but have different genetics and cannabinoid profiles, with hemp rich in the non-euphoric (Non-High) cannabidiol (CBD) and marijuana producing mostly psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Hemp oil can refer to CBD rich full spectrum oil extracted from phytocannabinoid rich flowers, leaves and stems of the Cannabis sativa plant or to hempseed oil. Unlike full spectrum hemp oil, hempseed oil does not contain CBD or other cannabinoids and is obtained by cold pressing hemp seeds.
Hemp oil extracted from the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant will contain CBD and is typically referred to as full spectrum hemp oil or CBD Oil. Hemp seed oil made from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant does not contain CBD or other cannabinoids.
CBD Basics
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid produced by the Cannabis sativa L plant. This means that unlike the endocannabinoids synthesized inside of our body, CBD is found in hemp. Regarded for its various benefits, CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system. Research suggests that the major pathway for CBD’s actions is the inhibition of the breakdown of the endocannabinoid anandamide, just one of many endocannabinoids produced by our bodies and potentially impacted by CBD use.

CBD oil is made from hemp plants. Typically, the flowers of Cannabis sativa strains rich in CBD and low in THC are processed to extract cannabinoids and terpenes, diluted with a carrier oil like coconut and turned into CBD oil products.
CBD oil made from full spectrum hemp extracts typically has very small amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). This amount of THC is not enough to have intoxicating effects or make you feel high, it is extremely negligible.

Organic Grit offers both Full Spectrum (with THC) and Broad Spectrum (without THC) .You can also scan every one of our products to see our product’s lab analysis for exact THC potency.
Uses of CBD
CBD has and still is being studied for its varied health benefits. Because CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system mainly by inhibiting breakdown of anandamide, it’s therapeutic potential extends to many biological processes within our bodies. Research suggests that CBD may be useful for anxiety, pain, sleep, epilepsy, inflammation, and symptoms of depression.

Not all strains of hemp are created equal. Organic Grit partnered with hemp farmers in Wisconsin that locally and organically grow Hawaiian Haze Hemp.

Research has shown that CBD may help alleviate anxiety. Evidence from both animal and human studies shows that cannabidiol may exert a broad range of anxiolytic effects on the body by interacting with several receptors known to regulate fear and anxiety-related behaviors. Neuroimaging research shows that CBD may significantly decrease subjective anxiety and increase mental sedation by changing activity of brain regions that normal mediate anxiety.

Various animal studies have found CBD may exhibit antidepressant-like effects. One mouse study found that cannabidiol may induce dose-dependent antidepressant-like effects both 30 minutes after a single administration and 7 days following treatment. Dr. Dani Gordon, MD, who treats many depression patients in her cannabis medicine practice, reports that her patients report reductions in depression symptomatology including reductions in stress and anxiety, and increases in motivation, engagement and social behaviors. However, although much research has been dedicated to CBD as a mood balancing agent, we have not found any peer-reviewed journal studies of CBD’s antidepressant effects in humans.
