CBD

What it is

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid which was discovered in the 1940’s. It is one of over 120 cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant. This accounts for 40% of the plant extract. CBD has no psychoactive effects unlike its counterpart THC, so you will never feel high. With less than 0.3% THC in our Full Spectrum oil and zero THC in our Broad Spectrum oil, this is an alternative natural option to get relief from several different ailments rather than using harsh pharmaceuticals. Hemp is naturally higher in CBD then Cannabis and lower in THC which makes this treatment great for all professions that require drug testing.

CBD Health Benefits
Cannabidiol has incredible medicinal benefits and may improve overall wellness. CBD oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory and helps relieve pain, reduces anxiety, reduces insomnia, improves cardiovascular function, improves skin condition, it’s anti-spasmodic and so much more.

CBD affects principal cannabinoid receptors in the brain promoting a healthy state of mind, improved cognition and better memory.

Cannabidiol may help restore healthy balance to the endocannabinoid system. Cannabidiol (CBD) is not only a major phytocannabinoid, it is the most concentrated form from the three main cannabis plants.

The Endocannabinoid System
We are hard-wired with a system of cannabinoid receptors throughout our brains and bodies. When these receptors are activated, they enable two-way communication between body systems; something previously thought to be impossible.

Hemp Oil Extract Is In A Class All Its Own
More than 400 phyto-nutrients exist in hemp plants. Our Extraction technology allows us to extract all of these nutrients, without using any heat or harmful solvents. The result is a whole food with exceptional nutritional qualities. With our oils you’re getting highly sought after CBD, plus the 400+ other nutrients in a naturally synergistic, easy-to-use, easy-to-absorb form. It truly is a one-of-a-kind product.

Every major civilization in history has recognized hemp as #1 on its list of important plants. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks and Romans all revered hemp as an incomparable source of food and medicine. Now modern science is validating what the ancients all knew — and uncovering exciting new discoveries about hemp.

What it does
We are born with an endocannabinoid system with receptors all through the brain and body. The cannabidiol attaches to these receptors. Each type of receptor cell has a unique shape that allows it to interact specifically with certain cells. Think of these cells like a shape, only the square peg can fit through the square hole, the round peg through the round hole, etc.
Our CBD products are a full spectrum CO2 extracted hemp oil with zero solvents. This makes our product the most potent on the market today. Full spectrum oil gives the endocannabinoid system the full cannabinoid profile of CBD, CBC, CBN and CBG in order to back the health claims

When CBD oil is taken orally or through inhalation, it activates these receptors allowing your body to heal naturally and maintain your body’s balance or homeostasis. The body is always striving to achieve and maintain balance, and CBD oil supports the body to do so.

Homeostasis is the body’s ability to regulate and stabilize itself from the outside environment. Homeostasis is vital to your body’s optimal performance. Your body needs to stay within certain parameters in order to function at its best. Your body isn’t dealing with just one obstacle at a time; it’s constantly regulating temperature, digestive function, immune system function, hormone levels, etc.

Other important Cannabinoids

What is CBN?

CBN is the abbreviation for cannabinol, another compound within the cannabinoid family. In fact, CBN was the first cannabinoid isolated by scientists. CBN is produced when THC is heated or exposed to oxygen; it also occurs naturally as the cannabis plant ages. Even though CBN is derived from THC, it doesn’t share the psychoactive properties of THC (meaning you won’t get high from CBN alone).

Within the endocannabinoid system, CBN binds to receptors less effectively than many other cannabinoids. However, it has been studied extensively as a helpful compound to improve sleep health. Scientists have discovered that CBN acts as a powerful sedative, with effects comparable to common sleep-inducing pharmaceuticals like diazepam. In studies on mice, CBN has been shown to prolong sleep time; additional studies suggest that this effect is amplified when used in combination with THC.

Along with its implications for sleep health, CBN has been studied as a possible stimulant for bone tissue growth. Research shows that it may activate stem cells that facilitate the production of new bone, making it potentially useful for the healing of fractures.

Additional studies have explored the analgesic, antibiotic, anticonvulsant, and anti-inflammatory applications of CBN. However, CBN is not widely available as a supplement at this time.

What is CBG?

Like the other compounds in this overview, CBG (short for cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with a variety of promising medical applications. CBG is actually the precursor to its more famous cousins, CBD and THC. Like CBDA, exposure to light or heat breaks down CBG in the cannabis plant into these better-known compounds.

Most strains of cannabis contain relatively little CBG, often less than 1%. However, that doesn’t mean this cannabinoid is any less promising when it comes to potential applications. CBG interacts with both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system; during these interactions, it’s thought to naturally increase dopamine levels, which help to regulate sleep, mood, and appetite. CBG is also thought to obstruct GABA uptake in the brain and block serotonin receptors—both positive implications for the treatment of anxiety and depression.

Studies have found CBG especially effective for certain physiological systems and symptoms, including:

Glaucoma

Endocannabinoid receptors are highly concentrated in the structures of the eye, and CBG has been shown particularly effective at reducing the intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma.

Cancer

A recent study offered promising results for CBG as a cancer-fighting compound, with the potential to block the receptors that cause cancer cell growth. Scientists saw inhibition in the growth of colorectal cancer cells in mice that were treated with CBG, offering an exciting new avenue of treatment for cancer patients.

MRSA

A study conducted in Europe revealed the antibiotic properties of CBG, discovering that it was effective in topical applications at combating Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains that are resistant to several classes of antibiotics.

CBG has also been studied as a potential treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, nerve cell degeneration, appetite stimulation, and bladder dysfunction disorders. Learn more about the CBG cannabinoid.

How CBD works

Anti-inflammatory
Inflammation in the body is the underlying cause of much pain that we experience and this, over time, can result in tissue damage. Prescription pain relievers have been the go-to but people are starting to seek more natural ways to support their bodies. Long term use of prescription drugs can have lasting effects on the liver, kidneys, and stomach – not to mention many of them can be highly addictive. CBD has powerful natural anti-inflammatory properties, without any negative side effects. It’s also a natural muscle relaxant.

Sleep aid
Sleep is one of the most important things we need for the body to heal and repair on a day to day basis. However, when suffering from pain, insomnia and/or anxiety it can be very difficult to get the restful sleep needed to promote healing. Because of the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil and also the calming effect on the nervous system, it’s helping many to get a better night’s sleep.

Stress relief & Mood elevator
Many people in today’s world live in a constant state of stress and overstimulation. Similar to the effect on anxiety, CBD helps to calm the fight or flight response.

Non-psychoactive
CBD does not produce the ‘high’ felt from cannabis as it does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. This means important daily tasks, like driving, taking care of children and working, will not be affected or put at risk by using CBD products.

CBD oil has been shown to protect nerve cells, decrease inflammation, and facilitate healthy blood flow in the body as well as acts as a strong anti-oxidant.

CBD industry
The CBD industry is predicted to be a 20 billion dollar industry by 2020. There are well over 20,000 studies today that show the huge benefits of CBD for a staggering amount of dis-eases and health conditions. This is backed by a tremendous amount of scientific research , public opinion and ever changing acceptance of CBD use from all walks of life. It is finally getting the reputation it deserves after so many years of being suppressed.

So what does the “whole plant” mean?

As so with many aspects of this amazing plant, the answer is simple: There is no single active ingredient, no magic molecule in hemp. The many cannabinoids and compounds found in hemp work together, synergistically, to create outcomes they could not achieve on their own. Scientists call this ‘the entourage effect,” and it’s been proven over and over. .

The whole plant contains CBD, and other natural plant constituents (terpenes, flavonoids, secondary cannabinoids, etc.) that are found in all parts of hemp. When we say “whole plant” we are referring to the variety of constituents (more than 500 trace compounds) in the hemp oil itself.
Likewise, the diverse compounds and chemicals in hemp combine and interact to create a sum that is greater than its parts. For instance, the aromatic terpenoids that give hemp its distinctive smell have been proven to block some receptors in the brain, while making it more likely for cannabinoids to bind to other receptors. Play this dynamic out across and among hemp’s hundreds of compounds, and you begin to understand why whole-plant CBD oil is more effective than single-molecule.

We are trusted by top doctors and health professionals worldwide. Additionally, our products have been made using the purest, and most potent ingredients backed by mounds of clinical data and stability testing. Also our products are made in a cruelty free environment, and meet good manufacturing practices.
