Cannabidiol — CBD — is a cannabis compound with significant medical benefits. Unlike the properties found in recreational Marijuana, Hemp CBD contains less than 0.3% THC.
THC vs. CBD
So what’s the difference? Simply put: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the compound found in marijuana that makes you feel “high” due to its psychoactive attributes. THC has found its uses in the medical world, but we are focused instead on the healing attributes found in the Hemp plant, the cannabidiol known as CBD.
What this means to you, our customers, is that we can provide lotions and ointments for you to use every day, without you having to worry that putting on those lotions will make you feel “stoned.”
CBD is non-psychoactive, which is what makes it appealing for people looking for help with anything from joint inflammation to anxiety. According to Project CBD (click to see more information), research sponsored by the US Government has found the medical benefits of CBD can extend to conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, MS, PTSD, depression, and epilepsy.
Even children who suffer from hundreds of seizures in a day are using the medical benefits of CBD to drastically reduce their suffering, as well as the number of prescription medications they were having to take.
Whole Plant Benefits
Our product is unique in that we extract the full spectrum of phytocannabinoids from the whole plant. As the use of CBDs have grown, so have the companies that are mass-producing oil overseas, and shipping to the United States. Many times those oils will be stripped of their natural phytocannabinoids (of which there are nearly 60 different types) to a single isolated compound.
We believe the efficacy is greatly increased with the plant remains intact — this is known as the entourage effect (click to see more information).
