What is cbd?
CBD is extracted from high-CBD, low-THC hemp plants. All of Sage’s products contain zero THC and are non-psychoactive.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 100 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems.
Why do people take CBD?
CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is one of the most studied cannabinoids, second only to THC. Largely non-psychoactive, it provides numerous health benefits without THC’s intoxicating effects. We recommend consulting scientific publications & government resources for more iformation in the benefits of CBD
Are CBD & THC the same?
No. There are over 100 known cannabinoids, each with their own effect on the body. Though THC and CBD have similar chemical composition. Because of the way THC is arranged molecularly, it is the perfect compound for interaction with Cannaboid 1 (CB1) receptors. This connection is the one that provides an intoxicating effect to the brain. CBD, however, is not a good connector to CB1. Instead, CBD connects with CB2 receptor. This produces a completely different effect on the body.
Is there THC in your products?
Nope! There are no traceable amounts of THC detected by third party testing.
How Much CBD do I need?
A number of factors determine your ideal CBD serving. This can include your weight, metabolism, and genetics, among others. Because each individual’s endocannabinoid system is unique, some people may only require a small amount of CBD to receive their desired benefits, while others may require much higher serving to experience the same effects.

Is CBD Psychoactive?
CBD is largely non-psychoactive, meaning it has no intoxicating effects and will not get you high. This has to do with how CBD interaction with cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body.
Like all cannabinoids and endocannabinoids, CBD works within our endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a part of the nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is comprised of cannabinoids that the body naturally produces, called endocannabinoids, and two primary cannabinoid receptors.
The first receptor, CB1, can primarily be found throughout the central nervous system (CNS). The other primary receptor, CB2, is primarily found throughout the peripheral nervous system (PNS), with smaller quantities found throughout the immune system, the gastrointestinal system, as well as the aforementioned central nervous system.
Because CB1 receptors are located primarily in the brain, they are responsible for the intoxicating effects of cannabinoids, whereas CB2 receptors are responsible for many of cannabinoids’ other effects in the body.
What is CBD Made of?
Our CBD is derived from industrial hemp. It is extracted from hemp via C02. The extract then undergoes purification and distillation processes to result in a high quality, high-CBD oil free from all solvents & THC.
Are your products tested?
Yep. The hemp used to to make the CBD in our products undergoes a rigorous testing protocol to ensure we sell the highest quality and safest products possible.
All hemp is tested for heavy metals and pesticides. Post extraction, the raw oil again tested for heavy metals and pesticides, in addition to testing for potency and residual solvents. All batches of CBD are then 3rd party tested for potency and quality analysis before we turn them into products.
