The Benefits of CBD
Cannabidiol also known as CBD is the most exciting and ground-breaking cannabinoid there is today! You may be wondering? what are cannabinoids? For starters, cannabinoids are the natural compounds present in cannabis that is responsible for the plethora of effects it provides to its users. There are at least 113 different cannabinoids that have been isolated from the cannabis plant and CBD is the one we are focused on. CBD has long been ignored from the cannabis community due to its non-psychoactive effects (does not get you high), however with time, its starting to gain more and more traction due to its anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties.

Methods of extraction
Hemp, hemp, hemp! The least processed form of the cannabis plant is hemp. CBD has been used as a safe and natural remedy for centuries due to its anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. Importantly, CBD does not have any psychoactive side effects (does not get you high). CBD is extracted from the flower of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Concerns over CBD arise from the confusion between Cannabis, Hemp and Marijuana. Hemp and Marijuana are both species of Cannabis, however Marijuana is bred to have high levels of THC (gets you high). CBD is extracted from Hemp that contains less than 0.3% THC. This level is considered negligible and cannot produce a “high”.
Cannabinoids are naturally produced in the body
When these cannabinoids are produced in humans and animals, they are called endocannabinoids. Our bodies contain hundreds of these chemical compounds which acts upon our neural cell receptors. CB1 receptors are mostly located in the brain and CB2 receptors are spread throughout the body. CB1 is responsible for coordination and movement, pain, emotions, thoughts, appetite, and other functions of the brain. CB2 is responsible for the immune system, cardiovascular system, gut, kidneys, bones, muscles and other functions of the body. Taking our CBD products may benefit a person’s health in a variety of ways by aiding these neural cell receptors we have in our bodies!
