What is CBD

What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, it is a critical phytocannabinoid found in hemp known for supporting the body and mind in many ways. It is not to be confused with oil from hemp seeds which does not contain cannabinoids.

CBD does not come from marijuana, it comes from hemp plants. Hemp and marijuana are close relatives but are not the same, by definition hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) the psychoactive compound found in higher concentrations in marijuana.

Hemp naturally has higher levels of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound known for helping human bodies maintain health and overall wellness and has no psychoactive effect.

There has been an almost exponential growth in the number of different CBD oils and hemp extract products available in the market place, purely as a result of people seeing positive effects in their health and wellbeing after using this health supplement in the daily dietary routine.

The best quality CBD oil products are derived from whole hemp plant extract with a full spectrum cannabinoid content with other cannabinoids and beneficial plant compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. It is believed that using whole plant maximises benefits derived throughout the body and supplies additional wellness components.

How does CBD work?

Decades of research have shown phy-tocannabinoids (CBD) to be a potent aid in supporting overall wellbeing in human bodies, achieved when CBD enhances the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The ECS was discovered in the 1990s and is thought to be one of the most vital and vast receptor systems for sustaining good health and has been recognised as an important modulatory system in the function of brain, endocrine and the immune tissues.

Recent science has found that the ECS does not only respond to Endogenous cannabinoids produced in the body, but also responds to external Phyto-cannabinoids or CBD as a means of enhancing the bodies ECS function.

Within the ECS there are receptors CB1 and CB2, located throughout the body. These neurons are a sort of lock, with cannabinoids acting as the key.

CB1 receptors exist in high numbers in the brain, especially in the Hypothalamus, Hippocampus and Amygdala.

CB2 receptors occur most commonly in the spleen, tonsils, thymus and the immune cells. The endocannabinoid system plays an import role in homeostasis.
