What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a natural compound found in the hemp plant. It's one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp, each with their own unique properties and benefits. There are over 100 different cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants, with CBD, THC, CBG, and CBN being the most studied. These cannabinoids interact with our Endocannabinoid system.


Endocannabinoid System

Think of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) as your body's master control panel — it regulates how we feel, sleep, eat, and remember things. Just like we naturally produce hormones, our bodies also create their own cannabinoids that help this system work properly. Sometimes, because of stress or other curveballs, our bodies can't produce enough cannabinoids. That's where hemp supplements come in. By adding cannabinoid supplements to our daily routine we're helping our bodies bounce back, restoring balance and setting the stage for our health to flourish.


The Entourage Effect

Imagine you're at a concert where every musician's instrument blends perfectly together, creating a sound that's more powerful and harmonious than any single instrument playing alone. This is similar to the entourage effect in hemp products. In hemp, there's not just CBD, but also other cannabinoids (THC, CBG, CBN, and more) and terpenes (the compounds that give plants their aroma). When you use a full spectrum hemp product that contains all these elements together, it's like listening to that full orchestra. Each component works in harmony with the others, enhancing the overall effect of the hemp product. When you use a full spectrum hemp product all parts of the hemp plant work together to offer more significant benefits than when CBD is taken alone.

The Spectrum of Cannabiniods

Beyond CBD, the hemp plant is home to over 100 different cannabinoids, each with their own distinct potential health benefits. Some of the other well known cannabinoids include:

  • CBG: known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, CBG is effective for those with chronic inflammation and has shown to be effective against bacteria resistant to traditional antibiotics.
  • CBN: specializing in relaxation, CBN is a cannabinoid known for its potential to aid in sleep and reduce stress without the psychoactive effect associated with THC.
  • Delta 9 THC: perhaps one of the most famous cannabinoids, Delta 9 THC is known for its mood-elevating and pain-relieving effects. Our products adhere to federal guidelines by containing less than 0.3% THC, ensuring legal compliance and safety. 
  • Delta 8 THC: a relative of Delta 9, Delta 8 THC offers a milder euphoric effect, promoting a sense of calm and well-being.
