What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of dozens of non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Cannabidiol, and all the other cannabinoids, were patented by the United States Government in 2003 as neuroprotectants and antioxidants (Patent No. 6,630,507). Cannabinoids are characterized by their ability to act on the cannabinoid receptors that are found throughout the body. CBD and other cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that display potent anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. They can promote the body’s healthy regulation of the central nervous, immune, and endocannabinoid systems.

Marijuana vs. Hemp
Aren’t they pretty much the same? No, they’re not. In fact, they are different species entirely. Hemp and marijuana have different appearances, applications, and cultivating processes. While they are both members of the cannabis family, there are stark chemical differences between the two species. The primary chemical that sets these two plants apart is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is only one of 113 different cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.
THC is psychotropic, meaning it is the active element in marijuana that gets people “high”, and as such has built a reputation as a psychoactive drug, and the stigma around this chemical has impacted all the varying species of cannabis plant. Marijuana is very high in THC at 5-35%, whereas hemp contains less than 0.03% THC, making it non-psychoactive and produces no “high” effects in its users in any way (Our CBD oil usually contains even less THC at .02% or even lower).
The primary chemical in hemp is CBD (cannabidiol), which is present in marijuana but typically only in trace amounts, is non-psychoactive and has many uses beyond the scope of marijuana. Hemp has over 25,000 known uses, including skin care, clothing, construction, plastics, fuel, and many, many more. In the U.S. anything extracted from marijuana plants are considered a Schedule 1 narcotic, whereas any product derrived from hemp is unregulated, and treated altogether differently.
Hemp Oil vs. CBD
Hemp oil is not CBD, and hemp oil extract is not CBD, either. Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds, as opposed to the plant itself. CBD is collected by harvesting the entire hemp plant, grinding it down, and using CO2 to extract the CBD from the other organic materials, which separates it from any other chemicals and removes things like the trace amounts of THC that could be present in the plant’s composition. In our products, we use both CBD and hemp oil. These are combined to achieve the correct viscosity in our oils, while keeping the product 100% organic.
Hemp is a bio-accumulator, meaning it naturally pulls toxins, heavy metals, and even radiation from the area around it. In fact, hemp is such an efficient bio-accumulator that it was used in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant after the meltdown to absorb radiation from the area. This is why it is so important to use only 100% organic hemp, like we do. In our hemp, there are zero toxins or any other negative chemicals because of the organic methods of growing and cultivation. Furthermore, our method of using hemp oil and CBD truly is the best, because it contains all of the original full spectrum 300 natural compounds found in cannabinoids working together for maximum benefit. Other varieties of methods of production such as synthetic CBD are far less beneficial because pure isolated synthetic CBD oil is actually caustic and will burn your skin. Hemp was always meant to be an organic, natural, eco-friendly, and healthy product. That’s why we, at Wicked Green, will always be 100% organic.

Wicked Green is truly wicked good. I am recovering from a recent surgery on my knee and have been having some pain and I have been trying various different pain ointments and none of them have really taken away the pain. I was introduced to Wicked Green and gave it a shot thinking, it was going to be the same old story… NOT SO… this cream was a God send with immediate pain relief. It’s the real deal and I highly recommend giving it a try. If they are giving out stars, Wicked Green gets a 5+ from me… oh and one other thing, the wife types a lot and she gave it a try on her hands and wrists and was surprised how it took away the aching pain…Amen!
When I was working as a RN in the ER I injured 5 discs in my lower back when I was crushed by a patient. The doctors had me taking 3200mgs of ibuprofen per day and over 100 Vicodin per month. I could hardly function. They were pushing surgery and refused to treat if I refused surgery. We all know how back surgeries usually go, 50% work kind of, and 50% are worse. I refused surgery and started looking for other alternatives. I am so glad I found CBD creams. Within 1 year I was off the opioids and had reduced my ibuprofen consumption by 80%. 6 years later and still using the cream, no surgery and opioid free.
I have used the cream for both hip and knee pain. It works so well that I don’t need ibuprofen. I recently applied the cream to my eczema and it cleared up in a couple of days. No need for steroid ointment.
My leg pain was keeping me up at night. I tried your cream and noticed a marked improvement. Thanks for the help!
Greg, I texted you to tell you Josh loves the CBD cream I got from you. He was skeptical but now he is a believer!!!
After 40 yrs of abuse and being an ex-pro baseballer with 9 knee and 11 shoulder operations (the last two being replacements), my injuries finally caught up with me. I’m still very active with sports and outdoors and I work as a Mfg in the fishing industry. One day I ran into Greg to talk fishing. We complained like most guys do about the good old days and our injuries and the next thing you know, he sent me home with a little jar of Wicked Green cream. At first, I thought it was just another “Snake Oil Remedy”. It sat on my end table for 6 weeks until my wife finally had enough of me moaning and groaning about my pains. She said, “you’ll never know until you try it”. I rubbed just a minimal amount on my knees and shoulders and 10 min later I felt 20 yrs younger. I couldn’t believe how comfortable and pain free those areas felt. Just try it once, you won’t believe it until you do!
After a recent surgery to repair my achilles tendon, I was having a lot of swelling and stiffness in my ankle and a loss of range of motion during recovery. I started massaging Wicked Green Cream into my ankle and heel before my physical therapy sessions and I’m amazed at how much it helped! My pain was eased, my swelling was down and my range of motion was restored enough to make it through some very aggressive physical therapy. The cream made my skin soft, left no greasy residue and it smells great! Thank you Wicked Green!
