Cannabidiol (CBD)See our “What is CBD” guide.
Cannabidiolic-acid (CBDA)CBD-A is an acidic cannabinoid, the naturally occurring form of non-acidic cannabidiol. CBDa is converted into CBD through decarboxylation.
Cannabidivarin (CBDV)Cannabidivarin (CBDv) is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid.
cannabigerol (CBG)Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of 85+ identified cannabinoid compounds. During plant growth, most of the cannabigerol is synthesized and converted into other cannabinoids, primarily tetrahydrocannabinol or cannabidiol.
Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA)Cannabigerol (CBGA) is the acidic variant of cannabigerol. It is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is the precursor for THC, CBD, and several other common cannabinoids.
CannabinoidA class of diverse chemical compounds. These cannabinoids interact with the cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body and brain in a system called the endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoids are those produced by the human body, whereas phytocannabinoids are those produced by plants.
Cannabinoid ProfileThe amount and concentration of all cannabinoids in a plant or product.
Cannabinoid Receptor Type 1 (CB1)CB1 is a g protein coupled receptor found throughout the body. These receptors are primarily concentrated in the spine and brain.
Cannabinoid Receptor Type 2 (CB2)CB2 is also a g protein coupled receptor found throughout the body. These receptors are primarily found in the peripheral nervous system.
Cannabinoid ReceptorsCannabinoid receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system.  These receptors are found in two types (CB1 & CB2) throughout the brain and body.
Cannabinoid SpectrumThe types and amounts of various cannabinoids (similar to a cannabinoid profile).
Cannabinol (CBN)Cannabinol (CBN) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found only in trace amounts and is mostly found in maturely aged plants. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBN does not stem directly from cannabigerol (CBG) or cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) but rather is the degraded product of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA). As a plant is exposed to longer periods of sunlight THCA is converted to cannabinolic acid (CBNA). CBN is then formed by decarboxylation of CBNA.
CBD EnrichedA product that is CBD-enriched has Cannabidiol (CBD) added to the product, typically when there would normally be no CBD in the product.
CBD Extract This is a thick, oily substance extracted from hemp. This extract contains cannabinoids, terpenoids, and other plant materials. A CBD extract will be high in CBD and low in other cannabinoids like THC. The levels of each of these components are influenced by the hemp source, extraction method, and further processing methods. These extracts may be sold alone or used as an active ingredient in CBD products.
CBD IsolateA crystalline form of pure CBD which is made by subjecting hemp extract to a series of distillation processes which remove all other compounds leaving behind only pure CBD.
CBD PasteCBD paste is a byproduct of extracting CBD from the plant. Depending on the extraction technique the extracted chemicals can either have a texture similar to a paste or a powder.
CBD PowderCBD powder is a byproduct of extracting CBD from the hemp plant. Depending on the extraction technique the extracted chemicals can either have a texture similar to a paste or a powder. It is commonly referred to as a crystalline powder if the extract is pure CBD without other chemicals or compounds.
CBD-RichCBD rich is used to explain a product or plant that has a high concentration of CBD relative to other products/plants. A plant is generally considered CBD rich if it has over 10% CBD content.
Certificate of Analysis (COA)A certificate/report provided by a testing facility as verification that certain tests were performed, as well as their results. Often contains potency tests of the strengths of THC/CBD and other cannabinoids in a product.
ChromatographyChromatography is a laboratory technique for separating chemicals of a mixture. The mixture is dissolved in a fluid and then the chemicals are separated and isolated.
Clinical TrialA clinical trial is a type of research study using a treatment that is given to people. Clinical trials are used to determine the safety and efficacy of future treatments and medications. There are often multiple phases of clinical trials before a drug or treatment is approved by the FDA.
CO2 ExtractionAn extraction method used to extract CBD. The CO2 gas is pressurized into a liquid and combined with the plant to separate the oils and chemicals. This is often seen as the most efficient and best method of CBD extraction because the solvent leaves no residue.
Cold PressApplying pressure to a material to forcefully remove liquid or oil. Cold pressed hemp oil is produced from hemp seeds rather than stems and leaves. The resulting product contains minimal cannabinoids.
Compassionate ExemptionA compassionate exemption is when a patient is allowed to receive a drug (often new or in testing) even though he/she does not meet the eligibility criteria of a specific clinical trial or study.
Controlled SubstanceA controlled substance is a drug or chemical whose manufacture, possession, or use is regulated & enforced by the government, such as illicitly used drugs. There are different levels or classifications of controlled substances based on severity.
CrystallineA crystalline is a solid chemical with a crystallized structure that is identifiable by its shape. Its geometric shape often consists of flat faces with specific off-shooting angles. CBD isolate in its pure form can have a crystalline structure in some form of extraction.
Curing PlantsThe process of slowly drying flowers from the plant.

DecarboxylationThe process by which, when exposed to heat, acidic chemicals are converted to active chemicals. Example: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is converted to THC
DecriminalizationDecriminalization is the process of lessening or reducing criminal penalties.  This phrase is commonly used to describe changing laws to make a product legal. Similar to legalization.
Dietary SupplementA dietary supplement is a product that is intended to provide nutrients that supplement the diet and provide effects for the body. It is against U.S. federal regulations to claim that a supplement prevents, cures, or treat any disease. The FDA enforces these regulations and also prohibits the sale of supplements and supplement ingredients that are dangerous.
DispensaryA store that can legally sell products, either medical, recreational, or both.
DistillateDistillation is the process of separating the components from a liquid mixture using heating and cooling. Distillation may result in a final product, the distillate, that is completely separated (pure components) or partially separated with an increased concentration of selected components.
DosageThe individualized amount of cannabinoids within products.
DrugA drug is any substance (other than food that provides nutritional support) that when consumed causes a physiological or psychological change in the body. A pharmaceutical drug, also called a medication, is a chemical substance used to treat, cure, prevent, or diagnose a disease or to promote well-being.
Drug AbuseDrug abuse is a serious public health problem that involves an individual consuming a drug that is not prescribed in a way that negatively affects their health or quality of life.
Drug ReformDrug reform, also known as drug policy reform, is any proposed change to how the government approaches, handles or responds to the use of psychoactive, illicit, or controlled substances. One of the popular beliefs of those in favor of major drug reform is that instead of using laws and enforcement for responding to substance use, it would be better to regulate the production, marketing, and distribution of currently illegal drugs.
E-CigAn e-cig is an electronic smoking device that is used to simulate the effect and feeling of smoking a cigarette. An e-cig device heats a liquid or oil cartridge to generates a vapor, that is inhaled by the user. Using e-cigarettes is commonly referred to as vaping.

Endocannabinoid ReceptorEndocannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body and are part of the endocannabinoid system. There are currently two known subtypes of endocannabinoid receptors, termed CB1 and CB2. The receptors are the part of the cell that interacts with chemicals through direct or indirect binding to signal changes to the cell and throughout the body. The endocannabinoid system and these receptors are involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, anxiety, and memory.
Endocannabinoid System (ECS)A complex regulatory system throughout the human brain, body, and central and peripheral nervous systems.
