Hemp and marijuana are different strains of the same plant: cannabis. They are distinguished by their levels of THC, the compound in cannabis that can induce a “high” effect. Marijuana contains high levels of THC (over 15%) while hemp contains less than 0.3% THC by weight. Following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is a legal form of cannabis in the United States.
Hemp extract is composed primarily of cannabidiol (CBD) but it also contains ancillary cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds that naturally occur in the hemp plant. The oil is extracted from the stalks, stems, and buds of the plant and then distilled to enhance the potency of the cannabinoids. The finished product is a honey-like, phytocannabinoid-rich oil that is blended with our different Remedio products.
CBD and THC may be the most well-known hemp compounds, but there are over 100 other cannabinoids in the hemp plant and they all have unique effects on the body’s endocannabinoid system. When a product isolates just one concentrated cannabinoid from the hemp plant (for example, CBD-isolate) it misses out on the beneficial, compounding effects of the whole family of hemp cannabinoids. Products designated as full spectrum include the full range of naturally-occurring hemp cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC. Broad-spectrum products, like Remedio’s oils and topicals, have non-detectable levels of THC but retain the benefits of the diverse range of other cannabinoids, such as CBN, CBC and CBG.
CBD is one of 113 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, each of which affects the complex network of receptors in the human body known as the endocannabinoid system. CBD can aid in bringing our bodies into homeostasis and has been known to increase focus and clarity, reduce stress and anxiety, aid in sleep, manage pain and discomfort, as well as reduce inflammation. CBD is the primary cannabinoid found in our products.

To take advantage of the broad therapeutic benefits of CBD, administer our drops sublingually. Holding the drops under the tongue for 30-60 seconds ensures the most efficient absorption into the bloodstream through the thin membranes in the mouth. When swallowed, CBD undergoes first-pass metabolism (digestion) before being absorbed, significantly increasing the time it takes to enter the bloodstream. For localized pain and inflammation, applying our topical Soothe balm will allow CBD to absorb through the skin to target the area of discomfort directly. CBD typically takes effect between 15 minutes and 1.5 hours after ingesting and results may last 4 to 6 hours.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that act upon the endocannabinoid system. There are three main types:
· Phytocannabinoids: cannabinoids found in plants (such as CBD and THC in cannabis)
· Endocannabinoids: cannabinoids found in animals, including humans
· Synthetic cannabinoids: cannabinoids manufactured in a laboratory
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors, neurotransmitters and enzymes throughout the body that send signals to regulate homeostasis. Largely concentrated in the central and peripheral nervous system, the ECS plays a role in regulating mood, sleep, appetite, pain, memory and reproduction. The ECS receptors CB1 and CB2 respond to cannabinoids naturally occurring in the body (endocannabinoids) as well as cannabinoids from plants (phytocannabinoids), like CBD and THC. These phytocannabinoids react with the receptors CB1 and CB2 in various ways to enhance or inhibit the regulatory responses of the ECS.
Unlike most phytocannabinoids in cannabis, CBD does not bind directly to CB1 or CB2, but instead affects the ability of those receptors to bind to a number of other cannabinoids. CBD’s effects are not solely limited to the endocannabinoid system, though. CBD interacts with upwards of 65 molecules outside of the ECS, such as serotonin and opioid receptors, which may explain its effects on anxiety and pain. While much is still unknown about how CBD achieves its therapeutic effects, the fact that it interacts with such a broad spectrum of molecular targets likely corresponds with its wide-reaching benefits.
For best results, take each product’s suggested dose every day or as needed on a consistent basis. For Drops, divide the product’s total CBD concentration by 30mL (the size of the bottle) to determine how much CBD is in each dropper. A quarter- or a half-dropper may be a good place to start if you have never tried our product. Each body reacts differently to CBD, and it may take some experimentation to find the dose that works best for you. If you have concerns, we recommend you speak to your healthcare provider.
Our products are batch tested through an independent third-party lab. For further information on testing, please contact our team at email@example.com.
All hemp extract used in Remedio products goes through an advanced molecular distillation process to lower the THC concentration to undetectable levels. This is what allows us to classify all of our products as broad-spectrum.
All of our products show up as ND (non-detect) when tested for THC. However, with any hemp product, there is always a risk of trace amounts of THC being left behind. If testing positive for THC on a drug test is of concern, consult with your employer before using any hemp product.
Rest features the same signature formula as our Drops containing our broad-spectrum hemp extract, but with a slight twist. We added CBN isolate to the formula, which has been shown to have relaxing and sedative properties when taken in small doses. Each bottle of Rest contains 90mg of CBN on top of the other beneficial cannabinoids that occur naturally in our extract. Rest is a great addition to any bedtime routine.
All Remedio products are 2018 U.S. Farm Bill compliant.
