What is CBD?

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid just like Milk Thistle is a cannabinoid. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is also a cannabinoid.  They are POWERFUL chemical compounds contained in the Cannabis sativa plant that provide amazing relief from numerous health issues, even conditions that will not respond to other treatments, and they do so with none of the side effects associated with pharmaceutical drugs.

The Cannabis sativa plant is sometimes called hemp and sometimes called marijuana.  How it is referred to is determined solely by the amount of THC contained within the plant.  It can be very difficult to tell the difference between hemp and marijuana plants, even though hemp plants, in some cases, have been bred to grow taller and have thicker stocks.  The only difference between hemp and marijuana are THC levels. THC is Cannabinol where CBD is Cannabidiol.  Testing is critical to ensure the purity of CBD oil.

When the Cannabis sativa plant contains low levels of THC it is called HEMP.  Hemp oil contains almost no THC.  Patented technology that successfully isolates and extracts the cannabidiol from the stem of the hemp plant results in what is known as FULL SPECTRUM HEMP OIL, WITHOUT THC.  Full spectrum hemp oil contains nutrients such as terpenes, protein, essential fatty acids, & vitamins. 

The Endo-Cannabinoid Receptor System

An amazing physiologic system

 In 1990, scientists discovered the endo-cannabinoid receptor system.  This system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is a collection of receptors located in our brains and immune cells that fit the active chemicals (cannabinoids) in Cannabis like a key in a lock.  Our bodies are hard wired for cannabinoids.

Some scientists consider the endo-cannabinoid receptor system our body’s most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining health.  This system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.  Where disease is a condition of the body in a state of imbalance, the endo-cannabinoid receptor system allows absorption & distribution of the nutrients in full spectrum hemp oil (CBD) to occur.  This action facillitates synergistic and holistic healing by restoring balance to cells.
