3What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is the term used to describe a sublingual tincture of CBD. A CBD oil or tincture is made by mixing a CBD extract from a cannabis plant into a base like alcohol or hemp seed oil. The CBD oil is meant to be held under the tongue and absorbed directly into the bloodstream. A sublingual absorption provides a faster effect than absorbtion via the stomach (i.e. taking a CBD capsule or edible product).

Terpenes are essential oils found in plants. There are around 200 terpenes in cannabis. They are what give cannabis its distinct aroma and flavor. Terpenes have beneficial effects and work synergistically with cannabinoids like CBD and THC - this relationship is called the entourage effect.
Try to keep the CBD tincture under your tongue for 30 - 60 seconds. The longer you can hold, usually the better it will absorb.
CBD pills or capsules are encapulated versions of CBD made to be ingested orally.
Hemp extract refers to the raw extract which is taken from a hemp plant for later processing into CBD oil or CBD products. The most common methods of extraction are CO2 and ethanol extraction.
CBD isolate or otherwise called "pure CBD" is the CBD molecule separated from the the rest of the compounds it normally occurs with. CBD isolate usually appears as a crystalline white powder. CBD isolate can either be synthesized in a lab (synthetic CBD) or made from a CBD containing plant like marijuana or hemp.
"CBD powder" likely refers to CBD isolate. Please question above "What is CBD isolate?"
The endocannabinoid system is the collection of cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes involved in the production and break down of endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are naturally occuring cannabinoids found within our body. The two most studied endocannabinoids are anandamide and 2-AG. The two most studies cannabinoid receptors are CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are located mostly in the brain and CB2 receptors are located mostly throughout the immune system.
CB1 receptors are located primarily in the centrail nervous system (the brain and spinal chord).
CB2 receptors are located primarily in the immune system.
The endocannabinoid system acts a homeostasis regulator in the body. Its purpose is to maintain balance.
