WHAT IS HempCBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, it is part of a group of active compounds called cannabinoids that are found exclusively in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids like CBD interact with different receptors in the body to produce a wide range of effects. There are actually over 113 cannabinoids produced by cannabis. The most well-known cannabinoid is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). This is what makes you feel high when you smoke or ingest marijuana. CBD is another cannabinoid that is gaining a lot of attention. Unlike THC, it wont get you high (non-psychoactive). Instead it has been gaining popularity because of growing evidence linking it to an extensive list of health benefits.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM:
Hemp extract interacts with something called the endocannabinoid system (ETS). This system is believed to be vitally important to your health and plays a key role in keeping everything in your body balance and running smoothly. Things such as your immune system, mood, cardiovascular system, digestive system and even your sleep cycle.
The body actually produces its own cannabinoids referred to as endocannabinoids, These include anandamide, which is also known as the “bliss molecule”, and 2-AG. These are abundant in the brain and play a role in everything from appetite to fertility and pain management. Whether produced by the body or in a plant, these naturally-occurring compounds all interact with the ETS through cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptors are present all over the body in tissues like the brain, digestive system, spleen, arteries, reproductive system and even the heart.
Researchers believe that CBD supplements can help correct any problems within the endocannabinoid system and has the potential to improve many aspects of your health.
HOW HempCBD CAN IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE:
WHAT IS BETTER AN ISOLATE OR FULL SPECTRUM?
Full-spectrum or whole plant tinctures take advantage of the ‘entourage effect’ that comes from combining all the naturally occurring chemicals found in the hemp plant. The cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in cannabis have shown to work better when they are taken together as opposed to in isolation from each other.
CBD Isolate, on the other hand, is simply purified CBD that has been extracted from the plant and isolated from the other powerful and healing cannabinoids. Isolates are much less effective than full spectrum extracts as only part of the healing properties of the plant is present.
