WHAT IS CBD?
Hemp's versatility means that it can be used in basically every product out there. Forms of clothing, shoes, bags even construction materials such as cement and hemp is the perfect solution. Not only that, but it's also an ingredient in food production and a medicine source.
Hemp is clearly and overlooked, but powerful resource for everyone, including our planet.
WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM:
The ECS comprises of a vast network of chemical signals and cellular receptors that are densely packed throughout our brains and bodies. The "cannabinoid" receptors in the brain- the CB1 receptors- outnumber many of the other receptors types on the brain. They act like traffic cops to control the levels and activity of most of the other neurotransmitters. This is how they regulate things: by immediate feedback, turning up or down the activity of whichever your system needs to be adjusted, whether that is hunger, temperature, or alertness.
To stimulate these receptors, our bodies produce molecules called endocannabinoids, which have a structural similarity to molecules in the cannabis plant.
All of us have tiny cannabis-like molecules floating around in our brains. The cannabis plant, which humans have been using for about 5,000 years, essentially works its effect by hijacking this ancient cellular machinery.
HEMP EXTRACTED CBD:
Hemp and cannabis may originate from the same species of plant, but they have a few prominent differences. What makes hemp unique from its psychoactive cousin, cannabis, is the hemp is cultivated to have high CBD content and little THC content (less than 0.3%), the chemical compound found abundantly in cannabis that gives the "high" affects.
Compared to cannabis-extracted CBD, hemp serves and excellent source of full-spectrum cannabinoids in their ancient, balanced state: high CBD/low THC. It is also legal to purchase hemp extracted CBD products nationwide, unlike cannabis, which is only legal in the respective states that have legalized recreational marijuana.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the compound found in the
cannabis plant that is know to emit the psychoactive, euphoria effects. CBD products are required to certain less than 0.3% THC, which is a fairly easy feat when using hemp for CBD rather than its cannabis counterparts.
FULL-SPECTRUM CBD EXTRACT:
This refers to CBD that is extracted from hemp in the manner that includes all of the other natural, beneficial cannabinoids of the plant along with the CBD compounds in order to receive the most potential health benefits.
As the name hints to, this is any form of CBD products that are edible. Most edibles are a form of traditional food such as candy, desserts, or snacks which are infused with CBD rich hemp extracts, which are absorbed into the blood stream through the digestion for their beneficial properties.
Topicals refer to any product that you apply directly to your skin or area of your body for receiving nourishment. CBD topicals are popular for receiving the benefits of CBD for skin such as a decrease in inflammation and irritation as well as moisturization and pain relief.
