WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many compounds, specifically cannabinoids, that are found in the Cannabis Sativa plant also known as the hemp plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance that has been shown to have a wide range of benefits and uses over the years. CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it won’t make you high or give you that ‘high’ sensation.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Cannabinoids such as CBD has been shown to exert its effects on the body through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays a major role in balancing many important functions in the body and works through two receptors: CB1 and CB2. CBD appears to have an indirect affect on these receptors. CBD is commonly used to promote a sense of relaxation and calm.
WHO IS IT FOR?
People who are active, nutrition-conscious, and live an overall healthy lifestyle can still struggle to feel their best. CBD, CBG, and CBN can be the difference between feeling good, and feeling great.
IS IT THE SAME AS MARIJUANA?
While hemp and marijuana do come from the same species of plant—cannabis—they are absolutely not the same. Hemp has a variety of uses ranging from textiles to nutrients and cannabidiols, while marijuana is typically used for its active ingredient: THC. Our CBD products do not contain THC, which is the psychoactive compound that induces a “high” in the user.
WHAT ARE CBG AND CBN?
Like CBD, CBN (Cannabinol) and CBG (Cannabigerol) are one of the many compounds naturally found in the hemp plant but in much smaller amounts than CBD. CBN is the cannabinoid yielded when hemp flowers are oxidized through either high heat or light. CBG is the precursor to all other cannabinoids. CBD products that also contain other cannabinoids such as CBN and CBG are believed to be more effective and potent through what’s called the entourage effect.
CBD has seen tremendous growth and popularity within the last few years as its benefits and uses become more well-known. With the growth of the CBD industry, it is especially important to choose a high quality product with a brand you can trust.
