Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol which is one of many molecules that are naturally found in the hemp plant. It is found prevalently in the plant’s flowers and to a lesser degree in the stems and stalks.
What is THC?
THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the chemical in cannabis that produces the euphoric sensation of being high.
What’s the Difference between CBD and THC?
Both CBD and THC come from the same strain of plant – cannabis sativa. They are both phytocannabinoids, meaning plant-based cannabinoids, but THC produces the feeling of being “high” and CBD produces no such effect. Simply put, you cannot get high on CBD.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system was discovered in the 1990s by an Israeli scientist. It consists of a system of two known receptors, CB1 and CB2 as well as two signaling molecules, AEA and 2-AG, found in the body and brain. It plays a critical role in regulating diseases and assists the body back to health when confronted with imbalance due to illness.
How is Hemp Different than Marijuana?
The critical difference between the two is the amount of THC in the plant. Marijuana refers to strains having higher levels of THC while hemp refers to strains containing .3% or less THC. Our CBD supplements contain no THC.
Is Hemp Legal?
Yes. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, which received bipartisan support in the Senate, hemp has been differentiated from Cannabis and legalizes hemp cultivation as an agricultural commodity.
Is There Any THC in Your Supplements?
Our CBD is 100% THC-free. It is analyzed once by laboratories at our source and then again by a third-party laboratory to ensure that our CBD products will provide all the benefits without the high.
Will I Fail a Drug Test after Consuming CBD?
Our supplements are 100% THC Free. Consumers should be warned that different drug tests may screen for cannabinoids other than THC. Other variables such as the sensitivity of each test, and each persons unqiue metabolism may influence the results of a drug screen. We cannot guarantee a negative drug screen. We can guarantee that our products do not contain any THC.
Will CBD Help My Conditions?

Sapphire Essentials offers the highest quality, strain specific, plant-derived terpenes in the world.
What kind of Extraction Process do You Use?
Our oils are extracted and purified in Colorado using proprietary extraction technology (chromatography) that allows for high levels of phytocannabinoids while eliminating unwanted amounts of THC and chlorophyll. This leaves the broad spectrum profile of phytocannabinoids and synergistic compounds such as CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC and over 40 naturally preserved terpenes.
What is the Shelf Life of Your Supplements?
In general, the shelf life of CBD products, if kept out of direct sunlight and in room temperature, can last up to 18 months. There is no need to refrigerate these supplements, but if you do, you may extend their shelf life.
