What Is CBD and What Is It For?
What is CBD and what are its effects? Is CBD legal? Am I buying the right CBD? There are hundreds of options when it comes to CBD but at Phexia we believe that information is the best way to make the right decision, so you can choose the highest quality CBD and be confident in buying the best CBD products for you.
What is CBD and what are its effects?
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the most important cannabinoids of the cannabis plant as it has no psychoactive or narcotic effect but has multiple benefits such as pain management, anxiety reduction, anti-inflammatory effect, and sleep improvement among others.
How do I know I am buying the right CBD?
Phexia’s CBD comes from the best organic hemp crop. Free of chemicals and other additives. To ensure that our products have been tested and verified we publish all third-party laboratory reports. And we guarantee that they have not been subjected to any genetic engineering processes.
Is it legal to buy CBD?
CBD and some other hemp products are absolutely legal as long as they contain less than the 0.3% THC limit. Phexia’s CBD contains less than 0.05% THC.

CBD vs. Hemp seed oil
CBD oil comes from hemp flowers which are rich in cannabidiol, so do not confuse it with the hemp oil you can buy in the supermarket, which is obtained exclusively from hemp seeds and contains absolutely no cannabinoids.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic chemical compounds present in many plants. Their main function is to protect the plant from external agents (fungi, insects, etc), but they have many more properties. Myrcene, for example, is the most abundant terpene in the cannabis plant, but it is also present in cumin, laurel, mango, and nuts. Terpenes enter in synergy with cannabinoids enhancing their effects.
What is the difference between isolated CBD, broad spectrum CBD or full spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD preserves the full range of active ingredients found in the hemp plant. This includes its full cannabinoid and terpene profile. In contrast, CBD isolate consists of eliminating all other active ingredients or phytochemicals, leaving pure CBD. Isolated CBD can be used to start using CBD, although the ideal way to benefit from all its effects is to use broad-spectrum CBD. At the topical use level, isolated CBD can also offer good results. Broad-spectrum CBD is a hybrid of the two above. It is made by isolating the compounds from the plant individually and re-combining them to mimic the effects of full-spectrum CBD, with some modifications. Full spectrum CBD can vary significantly in terms of active ingredients so the most important thing is to check the lab reports as this CBD is the one that can be the most misleading to the consumer.
There are many mislabeled products on the market that may make you think you are buying full-spectrum CBD when it is isolated CBD for which you should definitely not pay more as it will not offer you all the benefits of full-spectrum CBD. At Phexia, we are always transparent about the ingredients of our products and that is why we share the lab reports with you.
