What Is CBD
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of the many compounds found within the cannabis plant. CBD is a natural essential oil that has been extracted from the flowers and leaves of cannabis plants and is used as a dietary supplement to enhance our health. Now before you are influenced by the stigma of cannabis, let’s dive deeper to uncover what CBD truly is. Under the name, “cannabis,” falls two very different types of plants, hemp and marijuana. Marijuana contains CBD, along with very high amounts of THC, the compound responsible the psychoactive effects such as an euphoric “high,” while hemp contains large amounts of CBD and very small amounts of THC resulting in ZERO psychoactive effects. In order for CBD oil to be legal to sell and considered CBD Oil and not Cannabis Oil, it must contain less than 0.3% THC. As a result of our 100% organically grown hemp and proprietary advanced chromatographic purification process, we are able to achieve absolutely ZERO THC in all of our products so that you can be certain you are receiving the purest and safest CBD on the market with zero THC.
Most 100% THC free CBD on the market is a form of CBD known as Isolate, which is pure CBD extracted from hemp and only has marginal effects. In order to be the most beneficial, all of our CBD is a form of CBD known as full spectrum CBD which utilizes the majority of the hemp plant and retains the original concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes found in raw hemp extract to create a synergistic effect known as, “The Entourage Effect.” Terpenes have been shown to relieve stress, improve mood, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety, and provide antiseptic properties, among others. These cannabinoids and terpenes work in concert to produce a richer effect than CBD alone.
The uses of hemp plants date back to our very first president, George Washington, who was known for growing and selling hemp, which leads us to the question, why have we not been benefiting from this plant until now? The simple answer boils down to a lack knowledge within the entire cannabis species and an overall stigma against the plant. Recent advancements in technology and modern science has led to the discovery of CBD and the many benefits it brings, along with the human endocannabinoid system. We are just discovering how important CBD is within our endocannabinoid system and that our body naturally produces molecules called cannabinoids which support natural process throughout our entire body.
Our bodies naturally contain a system called the endocannabinoid system, which is directly involved in psychological processes such as appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids which are received by a vast network of receptors that extended throughout our bodies. These receptors contain CB1 receptors and are found in the brain, lungs, kidneys, and liver, along with CB2 receptors which are found within the immune system. Our CBD supplements stimulate these receptors resulting in relief from a wide variety of complications including but not limited to:
Pain, Inflammation, Anxiety, Sleep Insomnia, Diabetes, Acne, Parkinson’s, Depression, Epilepsy, ADHD, Heart Disease, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Bacterial Infections, Arthritis, Nausea, Schizophrenia, Cancer, Broken Bones, Withdrawal, Overall Well-being, And Many More!
With so many health benefits, how could you not give it a try! Our goal is to put an end to the commonly used pain killers that are prescribed to treat pain, and implement a safe non addictive alternative!
Why Am I Not Feeling Anything?
The effects felt as a result of CBD are usually subtle, regardless of how powerful and beneficial the effects are inside your body. CBD effects everyone differently and there are many factors as to why you may not be feeling the effects. First off, CBD is is not psychoactive, and therefore, is not anything like THC and should never be compared. Instead of altering your mind and body like THC, CBD enhances your mind by relaxing it and making it sharper. As a result of CBD effecting everybody differently, the dosage taken in order to experience the effects may be significantly different depending on the person, along with factors such as what condition they are trying to treat, their physical activity, and body weight. For example, a patient with chronic pain and inflammation in their joints will feel the powerful effects very soon after taking CBD while someone who is healthy with no serious conditions will most likely not feel the effects as strongly. If you are dissatisfied with the results, we recommend slowly increasing the dosage until the desired effects are experienced. Like any supplement, consistency is key. It may take several days for your body to benefit from CBD so maintaining a daily regimen is the only way to ensure the most effective results.
