the cannabis plant. CBD has many beneficial properties and is
commonly used to promote overall wellness.

leaves of the cannabis plant. It is used by people all over the
world for a variety of purposes.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis
plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis.
Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called
phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human
body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the
body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes

endocannabinoid system. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly, most
often through activation of outside receptors and interaction with
What is hemp seed oil?
Hemp seed oil is distinct from CBD oil. While CBD is extracted
from the cannabis plant’s flowers, hemp seed oil is produced by
pressing the plant’s seeds. Hemp seed oil is similar to other seed
oils such as corn oil and sesame oil. Hemp seed oil has its own
benefits, but it does not contain cannabinoids such as CBD.
What is the difference between CBD and hemp?
Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is grown for food and fibers.
CBD is a molecular compound found in the plant’s extracts. Joy
Organics CBD is extracted from a proprietary strain of hemp
known as PCR hemp, or phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. This
proprietary strain is far richer in CBD and other cannabinoids and
terpenes than the basic hemp plant used by most CBD producers.
Is your product safe?
There are no known incidences of illness caused by consumption
of CBD oil. Also, all Joy Organics products undergo rigorous
testing to guarantee they are free of any potential contaminants.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Marijuana
contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is
known as a drug. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC and
is unlikely to cause a high. At Ease products undergo a patented
process which removes THC from the final product. There may
be tiny traces but the labs read ND for none detected.
What is CBD used for?
Many people use CBD to support the body’s natural systems.
Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to
regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD
is also used by some for specific purposes such as supporting a
good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints.
Does your product contain THC?
All At Ease products show no detectable THC on their lab reports.
We use patented technology to remove any residual THC found in
our hemp extract.

you scan the QR code. If the product doesn't have a QR you can
contact us and we can email you the labs. email@example.com
Why should I choose CBD over medical cannabis?
Medical cannabis is another term for medical marijuana.
Marijuana contains THC, which is a cannabinoid that causes a
high. Medical cannabis can cause severe impairments. CBD is not
psychotropic, meaning that it does not cause a high. It can be
used while working, driving or undertaking any other physical
activities such as exercise and sports.
What does broad spectrum mean?
The term broad spectrum refers to CBD oil products that contain
a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial
compounds found in hemp. While many CBD oil products are
made using CBD isolate, At Ease broad spectrum oils maintain
concentrations of the beneficial compounds that are found in the
original hemp plant. Our broad spectrum CBD oil products
contain no detectable THC, as shown on our lab reports. We
recently changed the terminology on our products from full
spectrum to broad spectrum since the THC is removed. Things
are rapidly changing in the industry and we have to make changes
to keep up.

At Ease CBD products are made with broad spectrum oils which
have had the THC removed. Our products are extremely unlikely
to cause a high.

mood, restful sleep, increased attention and focus and others.

There is no record of anyone ever overdosing on CBD. CBD is
completely non-toxic. Also, all of At Ease lab reports show that
our products have no detectable THC.
What are the benefits of taking broad spectrum CBD products?
The benefits of broad spectrum products are usually greater than
the benefits provided by others, such as those containing just
CBD isolate. This is due to what’s known as the entourage effect.
The entourage effect occurs when compounds in the hemp plant,
including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, work together
to produce even greater effects than just CBD alone. All Joy
Organics products contain broad spectrum CBD oil. However,
organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in
different people. Your results may vary.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds
produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes
are what give cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized
by humans for millennia in aromatherapy. Terpenes are
recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug
Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic

products can degrade and should be used within a certain period
of time. They should be stored in airtight containers either in the
refrigerator or in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Please
refer to the product expiration dates for more information.
How should I store CBD products? Do I need to refrigerate them?

any specific concerns.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

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
What is the entourage effect?
Broad spectrum CBD oil, such as that used in Joy Organics
products, contains a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes as well
as other beneficial compounds. Each of the compounds has
particular effects on the human body. Because terpenes can affect
how the body responds to cannabinoids, the combined effect is
often greater than the sum of the individual effects. The overall
effect produced is known as the entourage effect. Non-broad or
full spectrum products do not have the benefit of the entourage
effect and are therefore not recommended.
Is CBD water soluble?
In its natural state, CBD oil is not water soluble. However, our
softgels are made using a patented process which encapsulates
the CBD oil into nano-sized emulsion particles that are water
soluble, allowing the CBD oil to be more easily absorbed. Our dog
treats and energy mix also contain a water-soluble hemp extract
How do I choose a product that is right for me?
The ideal method for taking CBD depends on the reason for
which it’s being taken as well as your preference for its format. If

flavor— it might take a couple of tries to find the perfect product
