Clearing The Confusion

What is “cannabis”?

An umbrella term commonly used to refer to both marijuana and hemp plants.


What is D8?

Delta-8 is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in cannabis. A close relative to D9, this compound has a reduced "psychoactive" effect. Users often report this cannabinoid being a better alternative than traditional cannabis.


What is D9?

Delta-9 is the most famous cannabinoid of them all. This is the one that causes all the trouble. D9 is the "psychoactive" cannabinoid found in cannabis and can be attributed to the common feeling of cannabis. This cannabinoid has been known to cause anxiety and psychoactive effects. 


Does D8 get me "high"?

D8 does have similar effects to D9, users often report similar experiences to cannabis use. 


What is CBD?

CBD stands for “cannabidiol”.  It is one of more than 100 different cannabinoids (an active chemical compound found in plants) found in a cannabis plant.  CBD is an active phyto-cannabinoid.


For additional reference, the body also contains cannabinoids in the form of endocannabinoids - which are part of the neurotransmitter system in your body.  


What is the difference between cannabis and hemp?

Cannabis - specifically the cannabis sativa species - is a variety of cannabis plant that generally contains high amounts of THC and moderate amounts of CBD. The amount of each within a plant can depend on the strain.


Hemp is a variety of cannabis that contains high amounts of CBD and low amounts (typically less than 0.3 percent) of THC.


Can CBD make me “high”?

CBD does not have the same psychoactive properties as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).  Therefore, it does not make you “high”. 


How is CBD made?


CBD can be extracted from a hemp plant in different ways. One of the best explanations of how CBD is extracted from a hemp plant can be found on the American Cannabis Consulting website HERE.  


After the CBD is extracted using one of the methods outlined at the aforementioned website (CO2, liquid solvents or oil infusion), it goes through a process called “winterization”.  This removes substances not wanted in the mixture so that you get a pure CBD product.  This process involves combining the mixture with a high-proof alcohol and freezing it.  After being frozen, the mixture is run through a filter to get rid of the unnecessary materials and then heated to burn off the alcohol.  The process could end with winterization, but here at Burning Acre we take it one step further with an additional short path distillation process to create the purest level of CBD oil. 


What does “full spectrum” CBD mean?

Full spectrum CBD means that the extract contains all naturally occurring compounds found within the plant.  This can include essential oils, terpenes (scent molecules) and other cannabinoids.  


What is a COA?

COA refers to “certificate of analysis”.  This means a product has been independently tested by a third party lab to verify its components. It generally contains a detailed analysis of ingredients to verify the manufacturer’s claims. 


Is CBD regulated in the United States of America?

Regulation of CBD in the United States is an evolving process.  For the most up to date information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding this topic, please visit their website
