CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of over 113 different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are the main active compounds in cannabis.
CBD oil is a liquid extract made from the aerial (above ground) parts of the hemp plant. It typically contains a carrier oil to help our bodies absorb CBD because it’s fat-soluble. The most common CBD carrier oil is coconut-derived medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil.
These are three types of CBD extract. Full spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other natural compounds found in hemp. Broad spectrum CBD is the same, except it contains (0.0%). CBD isolate contains only pure CBD and nothing else. Full and broad spectrum CBD extracts are considered more effective because of the synergy between their many constituents.
There are four major ways to take CBD: topically, orally (edibles/capsules), under the tongue (oils/tinctures/sprays), and via inhalation (vaping). Taking CBD under the tongue, where it’s absorbed through the blood vessels, is the most popular method.
All of the hemp used in Opulent Organics products is grown in Colorado: the U.S. hemp industry leader. It’s cultivated outdoors and is nourished by the sun, rain, and rich valley soil.
Opulent hemp is grown using all natural farming practices, and no pesticides, chemicals, or solvents are used during cultivation. Non-GMO, kosher, and eco-friendly, our hemp is pure and natural goodness.
The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp legal on the federal level in the United States.
CBD works in two main ways. First, it suppresses an enzyme that breaks down endocannabinoids, which increases their levels and helps support endocannabinoid system function. Second, CBD seems to interact with various receptors in the body, such as the serotonin receptor.
Discovered in the 1990s, the endocannabinoid system is a major biological regulatory system. It helps our bodies maintain a healthy state of balance called homeostasis by regulating mood, stress, metabolism, brain function, immunity, and much more.
This system consists of the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG (cannabinoids produced by our bodies), cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), and the enzymes that build and break down endocannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system is 600 million years old; it’s found in all mammals and many other organisms.
There are hundreds of studies on the health effects of CBD. ProjectCBD is a great resource if you’re interested in checking out CBD research.
The ideal CBD serving depends on many factors, so it’s hard to suggest a serving size that works for everyone. However, most people take about 10-80 mg of CBD daily. One helpful starting point is to consume 1 mg of CBD per 10 pounds of body weight. Therefore, a 150-pound individual can begin with a 15 mg serving. We recommend starting with the lowest possible CBD serving and gradually increasing it until you experience the desired effects.
Researchers are still exploring this topic. However, it’s too early to tell. In any case, we recommend using CBD daily for best effects.
“Opulent” describes something of the very finest quality, making it a fitting name for our CBD. It is also used to describe something rich, much like our phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract.
But the true meaning of Opulent is to live well. To find wealth in a healthy body and a balanced mind. To experience luxury in a community built on compassion and honesty. To relish each moment and move forward with focus and clarity.
We strive to bring the meaning of Opulent into the lives of all of our customers with science-backed holistic health solutions and the finest CBD products.

Our products are made with broad-spectrum CBD extract. This type of whole-plant extract contains CBD alongside all other hemp cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, but without the psychoactive effects. This way, you benefit from the holistic synergy between the many active compounds in cannabis (the “entourage effect”).

Generally speaking, CBD oil tinctures are the best all-around CBD product. However, every product has its own unique advantages. For example, softgels are easy to use and portable, while creams work best for localized concerns. Start by figuring out your needs and then look for the product that suits them best.
We recommend consulting a qualified healthcare professional if you’re currently taking prescription medications. Similar to grapefruit, large servings of CBD may affect a group of enzymes called P450 that metabolize about 60% of all prescription medications. This means taking a large serving of CBD can influence the effects of your medication.
