Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occuring compound in agricultural hemp and its relatives. Recognized for its many benefits, it's involved in numerous biological processes and has been proven remarkably safe for both humans and animals.
WHAT DOES CBD DO?
In 1992, researchers discovered the existence of the Endocannabidiol System (ECS) in the human body. In the years since, the ECS has been linked to some of the most important natural functions for establishing and maintaining health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, maintaining a stable internal environment despite external environmental fluctuations.
IS CBD LEGAL?
In 2014, the federal government passed section 7606 (aka the "Farm Bill"). This law allows the cultivation and use of any and all parts of Cannabis sativa L. (Agricultural Hemp) as long as THC concentrations do not exceed 0.3% on dry weight basis in accordance with the national institute of food and agriculture guidelines.
Because not all states laws reflect the federal guidelines, however, CBD products are not available in all areas.
ARE HEMP AND MARIJUANA THE SAME?
Yes and no. While both plants are technically Cannabis, they are cultivated and treated differently. In marijuana, different varieties are grown with an intent to increase the THC (the psychoactive compound that gives off the "high") and is generally used for recreational purposes. Hemp, on the other hand, has been grown to minimize the THC content (less than 0.3%) and is used in dietary supplements, skin products and for medical purposes.

WHY IS IT CALL UGLI BUTTER?
UGLI is an industry acronym for Unstable-Gel Liquid Instability. For maximum effectiveness, we do not put artificial stabilizers in our products and our carrier oil is coconut oil, which turns liquid at 76 degrees. While this method can create some issues in liquid/solid consistency, it truly is the only way to maximize bioavailability of the nutritional components.
WHY DAY AND NIGHT?
One of the main benefits of hemp is its ability to help the body relax and reduce cellular tension while not impairing how we function.
UGLI BUTTER (night) is a safe, relaxing night cream designed to improve the quality of sleep while helping you wake up refreshed, feeling better and ready to tackle the day.
UGLI BUTTER (day) takes the edge off of pain, stress and anxiety. The perfect counterpart to our night cream, it allows the body to function in a more relaxed and energy efficient state.
