    FAQs | Frequent Asked Questions

    One of the potential benefits of CBD is energy support. Because our endocannabinoid system reaches across the entire nervous system, brain, and vital organs, cannabinoids like CBD and CBG can help support energy levels and alertness—as well as overall mental and physical well-being.

    In our rise formulas, we combine CBD, CBG, and natural citrus blends to invigorate your mornings with a steady incline of focus and energy.*

    Do all types of CBD give you feelings of energy?

    CBD is recognized as having energy and focus-supporting potential, but not every CBD product will necessarily give you sensations of wakefulness or alertness. No two CBD products are exactly alike, and even small variations can be found from one batch to the next due to the cannabinoid concentrations, terpene profiles, and extraction methods.

    In other words—don’t expect to grab any CBD product off the shelf and make it part of your morning routine. There are more than 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant and thousands of other terpenes and flavonoids that impact the energizing potential of a CBD tincture, water soluble, or edible.

    Our rise CBD products are intentionally formulated to interact with your ECS receptors in a way that supports morning alertness and cognition. We pair the balancing effects of CBD with the cognitive benefits of CBG, all while citrus terpenes direct the energizing effects.

    Cannabigerol (CBG) is a lesser-known cannabinoid with concentrations that are typically low in hemp plants. CBG is known as “the mother of all cannabinoids” because CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids are derived from the acidic form of CBG, known as CBGA. In other words, all cannabinoids actually begin as CBG.

    Recently, CBG has grown in popularity due to its well-rounded benefits for the body and mind. Paired with a citrus botanical blend, our CBG rise products help support alertness, mental clarity, and a steady incline of morning energy.

    Our products marketed as “CBD oil for energy” may also contain higher ratios of CBG compared to other cannabinoids. Our third-party batch-specific lab results come with a certificate of analysis for each product, so you can confirm the exact cannabinoid content in your hemp supplement.

    How does CBG work in the body?

    CBG works in the body by influencing CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the endocannabinoid system. However, CBG interacts with these receptors differently than CBD, THC, and other cannabis compounds. CBG commonly works as a wake-promoting agent rather than a relaxant or a psychoactive substance.*

    While THC binds heavily to the CB1 receptors, CBG has a much lower affinity, which means this compound does not produce any intoxicating or psychoactive effects. Instead, CBG can support the activity of the neurotransmitter anandamide, which in turn supports sensations of pleasure, motivation, cognition, and alertness.*

    This helps provide a sustainable boost of energy while also sparking motivation and supporting wellness. This is ideal for starting your day on the right foot and compounding with other positive habits like hydration, exercise, and balanced nutrition.*

    Keep in mind that many of our CBG-rich hemp extracts contain other cannabinoids like CBD and trace amounts of THC (in full spectrum variants). This means you get the benefits of the entourage effects while enjoying the most CBG offers.*

    Terpenes can also influence endocannabinoid system function, which is why we utilize invigorating and energizing citrus terpenes in our rise formulas.

    How do CBG and CBD differ?

    CBG and CBD share similarities in structure but vary in their interactions with the ECS. 

    CBD is thought to provide more holistic benefits for relaxation, easing feelings of tension, and supporting general balance for the body and mind. CBG is considered more of a motivating agent which supports the nervous system and amplifies feelings of focus and alertness when starting your day.

    Both compounds have their place in supporting the ECS. We recommend taking CBD and CBG together, as they often work together synergistically in the body for more benefits and an enhanced entourage effect.

    CBD can help you feel energized, but you’ll likely get the most noticeable energizing effects when pairing CBD with compounds like CBG and invigorating terpenes.

    The effects of CBD and CBG work in synergy to support homeostasis, so we formulated our broad spectrum rise tincture with both of these cannabinoids, along with lime and orange essential oils, for added alertness and focus.*  

    Our rise collection is ideal for your morning routine, whether you prioritize CBG or CBD in your regimen.

    How long does it take for CBD to kick in?

    CBD typically takes 30 minutes to an hour before you experience noticeable effects. This depends on factors like delivery method, how much you’ve consumed, tolerance levels, and biological variables in your own ECS.

    For a quicker and more direct CBD experience, try a water soluble CBD product to mix into your morning coffee or tea and for much quicker effects than a tincture or gummy product. On the other hand, tinctures and gummies can take up to an hour to kick in, but the effects last much longer—anywhere from 5-8 hours.

    CBD products for energy should be used intentionally at certain times of the day, such as first thing in the morning or early afternoon. We don’t recommend taking CBG-rich hemp extracts in the evening, as it may interfere with your ability to fall or stay asleep. After all, you wouldn’t drink a cup of coffee before getting ready for bed, right?

    As a guideline, limit CBG and CBD energy products late in the day, especially long-lasting products like gummies and tinctures. Reduce or eliminate rise products after a certain time of day to avoid conflicting with your evening routine and relaxation.

    CBD products for energy offer a great alternative or complement to your daily coffee or tea, whether it’s a CBG-focused gummy or a CBD-rich tincture. With our rise collection, you have the tools to wake up right and tackle the day ahead with natural, sustainable energy.*
