Explore below to learn about the benefits and science behind CBD.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and is the second most abundant cannabinoid (only behind THC) found in the cannabis plant.
Does CBD get you high?
No, CBD is non-intoxicating.
Is CBD addictive?
No, CBD is not addictive. According to the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” World Health Organization (2018, June 4-7) “Cannabidiol (CBD) Critical Review Report”
What is Full Spectrum CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD or whole plant CBD contains all the other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), as well as very low (up to .3%) concentrations of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). Full Spectrum CBD also contains terpenes, vitamins, omega fatty acids, and trace minerals, all of which have therapeutic value of their own and help create the synergy known as the entourage effect.
What is the entourage effect?
The entourage effect is the result of the synergistic interaction of cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in the hemp plant. There are about 100 phytocannabinoids- cannabinoids which occur naturally in plants- in the cannabis plant which exhibit a variety of effects. Flavonoids are phytonutrients which are responsible for the color we see in plants. Flavonoids are known to have antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects. Terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in plants that have a therapeutic effect on the human body. Fatty acids have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.
What is Isolate CBD?
Isolate CBD is purified CBD that has been extracted from the cannabis plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids.
How does CBD work?
The human body has a network of receptors called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) helps our body stay balanced and in overall good health. CBD and other cannabinoids fit into the receptors of the endocannabinoid system, helping the body complete its efforts to keep us in good health by supporting many of the body’s physical processes.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. The ECS is an integral component of the body’s regulatory system, constantly keeping a wide range of bodily functions in balance. The ECS maintains a state of internal stability necessary for survival, despite external fluctuations. The body produces its own endocannabinoid receptors that modulate various biological processes throughout the body. Cannabinoid receptors can be found in the brain, nervous system, immune system, GI tract, bone, skin, and nearly every other organ in the body. These cannabinoid receptors help regulate inflammation, pain sensation, stress response, mood, memory, sleep, immune function, caloric metabolism, skin, bone health, and more. While humans make their own endocannabinoids there are also compounds called phytocannabinoids which are naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Coastal Clouds Full Spectrum CBD contains numerous beneficial phytocannabinoids including, CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), as well as very low (up to .3%) concentrations of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which work together to support the ECS.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp is a variety of cannabis that by federal law must contain .3% or less of THC by dry weight. Hemp does not produce a high and is primarily used for therapeutic value. Hemp is federally legal in all 50 states. Marijuana is used to describe cannabis that contains .3% or more THC by dry weight. Marijuana can produce psychoactive effects or the feeling of a high and is typically used recreationally. Marijuana contains low levels of CBD. Marijuana is only legal in 11 states.

Why is MCT oil used in Coastal Clouds Full Spectrum CBD?
MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil is Coastal Clouds CBD’s carrier of choice as it enhances the CBD’s bioavailability. MCTs are better processed by the body and are converted into energy immediately instead of being stored as fat. They reach the liver quickly and can metabolize almost immediately since the body treats them as carbohydrates and not fat.
Why are VG and PG used in Coastal Clouds CBD Vapor products?
VG (vegetable glycerin) and PG (propylene glycol) are the base of Coastal Clouds CBD vapor oil. Both propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) are considered safe and acceptable substances to be ingested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In fact both substances are part of many types of food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic products.
