What is CBD?

What is CBD?

In our words (and experience) CBD is a natural product with multiple beneficial functions for the body: it has anti-inflammatory to relaxing functions.

It is not a miracle product, nor is it a substitute for medicine, it is simply a supplement that will help you naturally balance your body, your nerves and your mind. For those looking for a natural option to manage insomnia, anxiety, pain, and a host of other ailments, CBD could be the answer.

In more scientific words, CBD is one of 200 active compounds known as cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD products are made by extracting cannabinoids from hemp. These cannabinoids are believed to interact with receptors found throughout the body’s endocannabinoid system.

Through rigorous laboratory processes, these cannabinoids can be extracted into CBD-rich hemp oil.

By taking a Full Spectrum CBD extract, the endocannabinoid system can get the support it needs to regulate body systems that affect mood, insomnia, inflammation, and more.

CBD vs Marijuana, is it the same?

Our CBD products are derived from hemp, not marijuana. Although often confused, hemp and marijuana are two completely different plants although they are both part of the cannabis family. Their chemical composition, application, appearance and cultivation are completely different.

Marijuana can contain up to 25-30% THC, the plant’s best-known cannabinoid. Hemp, on the other hand, is regulated at the European level to limit the level of THC to< 0.2%. This minimal amount of THC is not enough to get you high.

Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and, in addition, acts as its antagonist, reducing its effects: psychoactivity, dry mouth, tachycardia, loss of notion of time. This ability to regulate the effects of THC makes CBD a very interesting element in the recreational field, since marijuana varieties with different THC:CBD ratios open up the range of possibilities for cannabis use. In addition, CBD has multiple medicinal properties.

Is CBD addictive?

The WHO determines that CBD does not have psychoactive properties and is safe for daily use. In fact the report says that it has the same addictive effect that a placebo could produce.

Is it a legal medicine?

No, CBD is not authorized to be marketed as a medicine. There are several studies in progress.

Does it have an expiration date?

Like any oil, light and moisture can cause product deterioration. CBD should be stored as recommended and used within its suggested use-by date of 18 months from the date of manufacture.

What is CBD Full Spectrum?

It is a cannabis extract that contains all the components found in the plant, that is, all the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids contained in the harvested strain.

What is the difference between hemp oil and Full Spectrum CBD oil?

They are both made from the same plant, but hemp oil is cold-pressed from hemp seeds. It contains very little CBD, but is a great source of antioxidants and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. CBD oil or hemp extract oil is made from the entire hemp plant, including the seeds, leaves, and stem, and contains high amounts of CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids.

CBD vs Marijuana, is it the same?

Scientists first discovered the system while trying to understand the effects of cannabis, and named it the endocannabinoid system for this reason.

It is known as the master regulatory system and is responsible for maintaining balance in the body

Cannabinoids are the chemical messengers of the endocannabinoid system. With two categories: endogenous or exogenous.

Endogenous means also known as endocannabinoids, are compounds naturally produced by our body. They interact with cannabinoid receptors to regulate basic functions, including mood, appetite, pain, sleep, and many more.

Exogenous media are those that originate outside the body and can be found in cannabidiol (CBD). These also interact with cannabinoid receptors to produce physical and psychological effects in the body.We leave you the link to Wikipedia that has a lot of info and more sources here

What other ways are there to boost our endocannabinoid system?

  • Physical activity
  • Sunbathing (with protection always)
  • Eat quality fat
  • exposure to cold
  • Drinks rich in electrolytes, such as calcium, potassium, or magnesium
  • The consumption of vitamin A that we find in vegetables such as carrots or sweet potatoes, liver…
  • The chocolate
  • The tea
  • Avoid inhibitors such as pesticides or microplastics found in plastic containers…..
