Frequently asked questions
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is just one of several different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD can act as a neurotransmitter and is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp seed oil?
CBD oil is an essential oil extracted from the cannabis plant’s flowers. It contains beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp seed oil, on the other hand, is similar to other seed oils such as corn oil or sesame seed oil and is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. Hemp oil does not contain CBD or terpenes.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Whereas marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug, hemp contains negligible amounts of THC, does not cause a high and is not considered to be a drug. SOTA products undergo a patented process which removes all traces of THC from the product.
Does your product contain THC?
The short answer is yes. However, our 500mg tinctures have .02% of THC. The amount of THC is minimal. However, there is currently no way to remove ALL of the THC from any product on the market. We feel it necessary to be upfront with all the correct information to keep you well informed. The level of THC in our products will never give you any kind of psychoactive effect. However, we cannot guarantee you will not have a false positive on a urine drug test.
