By now, you have probably heard about CBD and its multiple benefits. And even though CBD is almost everywhere, a lot of people still find it a little confusing. What is CBD exactly?
We are here to break it down for you.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one type of over a hundred different types of cannabinoids that can be found in the plants that are part of the cannabis family. Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds that exist in these plants and also within the human body, and they act on cannabinoid receptors, which are part of our endocannabinoid system.
How does CBD work?
The endocannabinoid system plays a pretty important role in regulating a variety of physical processes, like our mood, our appetite, the health of our digestive system, the absorption of vitamins and minerals, blood pressure, pain, and more. So, as you understand, a balanced endocannabinoid system is crucial.
Where does Cannabidiol come in that?
Cannabidiol, and the rest of the cannabinoids, interact with our bodies and impact us in an array of ways. The greatest way of doing so is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the endocannabinoid compounds in our bodies. That leads to a healthy, balanced endocannabinoid system, and to all the benefits that this comes with.
Where does CBD come from?
Cannabidiol comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant, which has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Although both of them contain Cannabidiol, there is a much higher percentage of it in hemp, which also has a very low percentage of THC.
CBD extraction process
We use organic and sustainable locally grown hemp for our products. A detailed extraction technique allows us to remove unwanted cannabinoids and isolate the beneficial ones. That technique also helps us dictate the exact amount of Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids in our products, make sure that our products comply with the strict legal guidelines, and are also 0% THC.
