Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive , which means it does not cause one to “get high” and there’s a growing body of evidence that it has a number of health benefits.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is the biological system which maintains homeostasis and balance in the human body. Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body on the surface of cells in the brain, organs, tissues, and glands. Cannabinoids come from two distinct places: the body, which produces naturally occurring endocannabinoids, and the cannabis plant.
Two cannabinoid receptors have been discovered by researchers: CB1 and CB2. CB1 is found in the central and peripheral nervous system, and the brain. CB2 receptors are predominantly found in the immune system and the gastrointestinal system where they regulate inflammatory responses in the bowels. CB2 receptors are also found in the brain, although not as densely as CB1 receptors. These receptors, a large part of the endocannabinoid system, play roles in regulating cardiovascular activity, appetite, mood, memory, and pain in the body.
As CBD gains popularity the list of reported benefits seems to keep growing, but the most common benefits we hear from our customers include:
Sleep Pattern Regulation
These are just the most common uses, however, people use CBD for a multitude of reasons. We encourage you to do some of your own research to see if people are finding the relief or increased performance from CBD you are looking for!
A “Full Spectrum” product is a hemp oil product that contains all of the original non-psychoactive cannabinoids and synergistic compounds in the original hemp plant such as such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), and over 40 naturally preserved terpenes.
CBD Isolate is processed repeatedly until the only cannabinoid that remains in the product is cannabidiol.
A full spectrum product is superior to an isolate because the other minor cannabinoids have their own potential benefits. There have also been studies that show that CBD is more efficacious when taken along with the other naturally occurring cannabinoids and plant terpenes (known as the “Entourage Effect”).
Our proprietary extraction & purification process is carried out at low temperature, and its closed continuous nature preserves the full spectrum profile of non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids and synergistic compounds such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), and over 40 naturally preserved terpenes. This is important as there are studies showing that CBD is more efficacious when taken in a full spectrum product(known as the “Entourage Effect”).
