CBD has been gaining a lot of attention in the scientific community as well as the media, but what is it?

Cannabidiol also known as CBD is one of 100+ known cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa plant.

Cannabinoids are phytochemicals (biologically active compounds) produced by plants in the Cannabis genus (a taxonomical classification). These cannabinoids interact with receptors throughout the body to help regulate many physiological systems in the brain and body.

Cannabis is a general classification term used to designate both hemp and marijuana.

Hemp vs. Marijuana

Marijuana is known for its elevated levels of Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the better known cannabinoid and is responsible for the intoxicating effects of marijuana.

Hemp is known for its elevated levels of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD will not get you “high” but is believed to be responsible for a myriad of therapeutic effects not only in humans but in animals as well!

When AYANI talks about CBD we are referring to CBD sourced strictly from hemp.

The CBD in our products is always sourced from Hemp and is always well below the legal limit of 0.3% THC. There is no chance of any intoxicating effects like those experienced with the consumption of THC.

What’s the Difference between CBD AND THC?

THC is known for its ability to make you high. CBD is known for its non-intoxicating medicinal effects. On a molecular level THC and CBD are not all that different. When taking a quick look at the molecular structure of the most common cannabinoids one would assume that they are the same molecule. However, these small differences in composition have a direct influence on how they metabolize and take effect in the body. CBD will not get you high.



CBD and cannabinoids are special in the way they work within the body. To understand how CBD works it is critical to understand its relationship with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of Cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing or screening, we recommend (as does the United States Armed Services) that you DO-NOT ingest our products. Prior to consuming these products consult with your healthcare practitioner, drug screening company or employer.

Will CBD get me high?

No CBD will not get you high. CBD does not have any intoxicating effects.
THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the intoxicating effects of being “high”.
