What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid compound found in the resinous flower of the cannabis sativa plant. It does not alter consciousness or trigger a "high". Today, the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. CBD is safe and non habit forming. It is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
How does CBD work?
Our bodies contain an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) with numerous cannabinoid receptors that play a pivotal role in physiological processes such as sleep, pain, mood, appetite, immunity, etc. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and to a lesser extent other tissues. CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs and are associated with the immune system. CBD has powerful indirect effects on these receptors and is still being studied.
Will this product get me high?
The cannabis plant contains more than 80 different chemicals known as cannabinoids. The most abundant of these is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and is well known for its psychoactive properties. This is what cannabis/Marijuana is famous for. CBD is the second most abundant cannabinoid and is nonpsychoactive. Hemp plants are grown for their fibers and high levels of CBD whereas marijuana plants grown for recreational use have higher concentrations of THC compared with CBD. The hemp plant must contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered legal. It is from this plant that CBD is extracted.
Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.
CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high.
What are the benefits of CBD?
Many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects – medicine more in synch with natural processes. CBD can help provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.
Extensive scientific research and mounting anecdotal accounts from patients and physicians highlight CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of maladies, including (but not limited to):
Autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis)
Neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury)
Metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity)
Neuropsychiatric illness (autism, ADHD, PTSD, alcoholism)
Gut disorders (colitis, Crohn’s)
Cardiovascular dysfunction (atherosclerosis, arrhythmia)
Skin disease (acne, dermatitis, psoriasis)
What’s the difference between Full Spectrum CBD Oil and Isolate CBD?
CBD isolate is pure isolated CBD compound. Our isolate products contain 99.9% pure CBD isolate extract. On the other hand, Full Spectrum CBD oil contains multiple cannabinoids and other active plant compounds such as THC, flavonoids, fatty-acids, and terpenes. This is what gives the full spectrum CBD oils what is known as the "entourage effect." The entourage effect implies that multiple compounds work synergistically together to produce better therapeutic outcomes than if the compounds are isolated.
Has there been medical research on CBD?
There is a generous amount of scientific and medical peer-reviewed research that has been carried out on CBD. Many more studies are being conducted at this time. These studies are available for review online. We recommend to review articles from a .org or .gov website.
Can a CBD user test positive for Marijuana/THC?
In the use of CBD isolate products, which do not contain THC, then a urine test should not reveal a positive result for THC metabolites. However, most products are full spectrum and contain the legal amount of THC (.3%). Prolonged usage of the full spectrum products could potentially yield a positive result. If this is a concern, please use the contact us tab to inquire about our partners that provide isolate CBD products.
