Premium CBD Oil

WHAT IS CBD OIL?

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of over 60+ naturally occurring cannabinoid compounds found in Cannabis, an annual herbaceous flowering plant. CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant’s secretions. Both marijuana and hemp are forms of cannabis. However, cannabis does not mean marijuana. Cannabis is the genus name and general umbrella term, under which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall.
99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances and only a trace amount of THC. Our CBD products are derived from hemp, not marijuana.

It is an established scientific fact that CBD and other components of cannabis can modulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body. As the second most prevalent cannabinoid in marijuana and the top NON-psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp, CBD has been increasingly and robustly researched in the scientific and medical community, including the pharmaceutical sector. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, it does not cause any feeling of “high,” which contributes to its legalization across the United States.

Because our CBD products and extracts are derived from hemp (not marijuana), they can also be referred to as CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp-derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or simply “hemp extracts.” Note that CBD oil is different from hemp seed oil and organic hemp oil, as the latter oils are derived from hemp seeds (not the resin) and do not contain cannabidiols.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

CBD primarily interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid (EC) system, a network of millions of cannabinoid receptors found throughout our body. These receptors are densely clustered in the brain and central nervous system.
Cannabidiol is a pleiotropic substance in that it produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. The scientific literature has identified more than 65 molecular targets of CBD, demonstrating CBD’s ability to modulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body. Extensive preclinical research—much of it sponsored by the U.S. government—indicates that CBD has potent anti-tumoral, antioxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-psychotic, anti-convulsive, and neuroprotective properties. CBD directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-anxiety effect, as well.
At high concentrations, CBD directly activates the 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine) serotonin receptor, thereby conferring an anti-anxiety effect. This G-coupled protein receptor is implicated in a range of biological and neurological processes, including (but not limited to) anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea and vomiting.
CBD directly interacts with various ion channels to confer a therapeutic effect. CBD binds to TRPV1 receptors (which also function as ion channels) resulting in mediation of pain perception, inflammation and body temperature.

While CBD is a phytocannabinoid, or plant-based cannabinoid, our bodies also naturally produces cannabinoids, known as endogenous cannabinoids or endocannabinoids. Almost every organ of our body, including our skin and digestive tract, contains cannabinoid receptors. The endocannabinoid system has four primary purposes:

  • Neuroprotective
  • Anxiolytic (anxiety relief)
  • Analgesic (pain relief)
  • Immune upregulating
  • Homeostatic (balancing) – regulates the body’s general state of balance, impacting faculties such as appetite and digestion, sleep, mood, and pain

Unlike THC, CBD does not interact directly with the two classical cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). This is why CBD does not cause any psychoactive effect. Instead, CBD inhibits the enzymes that break down endocannabinoids, leading to an increase in your body’s naturally-produced cannabinoids.
