CBD Terms

Additive
A substance added to something in small quantities to improve it. Some examples are water-soluble CBD additive – Versa™ and oil-soluble CBD additive – Lingua™. Adding measured doses of CBD to your daily routine can be easy.

Base
The principal ingredient of a product’s mixture.

Bioavailability
How much of a specific compound can be absorbed into the bloodstream. A higher bioavailability means more of the compound enters the bloodstream.

Cannabidiol
Cannabidiol, or “CBD” is a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant. CBD and other exotic cannabinoids are pulled from the hemp plant using CO2 extraction. CBD is non-psychoactive cannabinoid, meaning it will not impair mental judgement or create the intoxicating feeling commonly referred to as a “High”.

CO2 Extraction
Supercritical CO2 Extraction is a form of fluid chromatography. Highly pressurized and adjusted to precise temperatures, CO2 gas is placed in a CO2 extraction tank with the plant matter. This CO2 works safely as a solvent for our cannabinoids and terpenes.

CoA
Certificate of Analysis or “CoA” are test results showing the safe and accurate extraction of Spyglass CBD™ cannabinoids.

Full Spectrum
A term used to refer to products containing a range of compounds found in the hemp plant. CBD can be one of many compounds found in a full spectrum product. Full spectrum products should contain multiple cannabinoids and terpenes, not just CBD.

Hemp
Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species. Hemp is grown with the intention to use its raw material for extracts and many other industrial purposes.

Infused CBD
The method of fully mixing or completely incorporating CBD with a product, as opposed to spraying CBD, rolling CBD, or injecting CBD. This creates a totally even distribution of CBD with no “hot-spots” or “dead-zones”.

Isolate
The purest form of a compound. CBD Isolate is seen at room temperature in crystal form. CBD Isolate is one of many cannabinoids found in hemp.

MCT
Medium Chain Triglycerides or MCT is commonly used as a “Base” or primary ingredient. MCT is oil-soluble and used in all Lingua™ products.

Milligram
A unit of measurement. May be represented as “mg”. One- thousandth of a gram. Typically used to represent total “product strength”.

Milliliter
A unit of measurement. May be represented as “ml”. One-thousandth of a liter. Versa™ and Lingua™ CBD additives come in 15ml bottles.

Organic
Our hemp plants are grown naturally without the use of pesticides to promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.
CBD TERMS
Product Strength
Usually measured in milligrams or mg, this number usually represents the weight of hemp extract in the final product.

Solubility
The ability for two things to mix into solution. Mix water-soluble CBD only with water based consumables (Most beverages) and mix oil-soluble CBD only with oil based consumables (Butters, cooking oils). Mixing Oil and Water solutions together will not work.

Spyglass NutraHemp™
Proprietary blend of exotic cannabinoids, terpenes, and other ingredients used to aid in effectiveness.

Spyglass NanoTech™
Patented nano-emulsification process used to create highly bioavailable cannabinoids. Nano-emulsified particles are very small. Because of this, nano-emulsified particles are typically able to enter your body and bloodstream much more easily than larger “full-size” particles.

Sublingual
Meaning “Under the tongue”, CBD can be taken Sublingually, or dropped under the tongue using the included graduated dropper/applicator. This is a common dosing method by which cannabinoids diffuse into the blood through tissues under the tongue.

Terpenes
These compounds are created from the same glands that produce CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids. Terpenes are aromatic oils that create the distinct and notable differences between the cannabis varieties. Some terpene verities have the scent of berry, citrus, pine, or mint.

THC
tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, is another naturally occurring compound in hemp. THC is commonly associated with the psychoactive effects or “high” it creates when ingested.

Vegan
Vegan products do not contain animal products or byproducts and have not been tested on animals. Look for the Vegan symbol on our Spyglass CBD™ products.

VG
Vegetable Glycerin or VG is commonly used as a “Base” or primary ingredient. VG is water-soluble and is used in all Versa™ products.
