CBD is a naturally occurring component of the hemp plant. It is a non-intoxicating phytocannabinoid that offers a range of whole-body uses. CBD is just one of dozens of phytocannabinoids and other phytochemicals found in hemp. CBD is used as a nutritional supplement in the United States and in many other parts of the world.
The industrial hemp we grow today is actually a variety of Cannabis sativa. In other words, it’s closely related to marijuana. However, the two are not quite the same thing and CBD will not get you high.
Through the scientific lens, hemp and marijuana are the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis sativa. However, they each have a unique genetic profile. Most of the time, marijuana has a high amount of THC and a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has higher amounts of CBD and only trace amounts of THC. Hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits of cannabis without the ‘high.’ Historically, hemp has been used to make food products, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, shampoo, and so much more. Recently there has been a resurgence of the use of Hemp CBD for recreational and medicinal uses. All Copper CBD products are derived from the hemp plant.

No. All of our hemp extract products are made from industrial hemp with THC levels below 0.3%. There is no intoxicating effect from taking our products.
CBD from hemp is widely available across the USA. In 2018, updates to the U.S. Farm Bill legalized the commercial cultivation of hemp under certain regulations. Copper CBD products are sourced from American-grown, industrial hemp that meets the conditions of the U.S. Farm Bill.
The endocannabinoid system is a group of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system — a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters spread throughout the entire body. This system regulates the balance of various organ systems.
The endocannabinoid system controls plenty of major biological functions, including:
- Immune response
- Sensory perception
- Stress management
- Cognitive performance
CBD works with the endocannabinoid system by increasing our naturally occurring endocannabinoids — helping the body maintain balance.
For the best shelf life please store in a cool dark area away from direct sunlight, with low humidity. This will help to preserve the properties of the hemp extract. If properly stored CBD may have up to a 1 year shelf life!
We recommend storing your Copper CBD gummies in the fridge for extra deliciousness.
