The Plant

What is CBD?

The cannabis plant (both Hemp & Marijuana) produce many cannabinoids. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most abundant. Most people don’t know that both plants and animals produce their own cannabinoids. Plants produce what is called phytocannabinoids and animals and humans produce endocannabinoids. In fact, all vertebrates on earth have an endocannabinoid system. This system has Cannabinoid receptors which are present all throughout the body in tissues like the brain, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive system, spleen, arteries and even the heart. Because the body naturally produces these cannabinoids, when you take CBD from a plant, your body knows to replenish them exactly where the body has been depleted. This is how multiple people with different ailments can take the same product and notice relief. 

What are the benefits of CBD?

CBD is linked to these medicinal properties:

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • High in antioxidants

  • Pain Relief

  • Better sleep

  • Reduces Anxiety and depression

  • Reduces Acne and skin inflammation

  • Seizure suppressant

  

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

Both THC and CBD are cannabinoids and are found in both the Hemp and Marijuana plant and have the exact same chemical makeup: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms.

They are nearly twins! The only thing that differentiates them is the arrangement of a single atom. Making THC have a psychoactive affect, while CBD does not. 

What method do we use for extraction?

We use a proprietary extraction process that selectively pulls compounds we want and leaves the undesired compounds such as chlorophyll, polysaccharides, and any other water soluble compounds. 

Why do we use this process?

We have found that using this technique helps us easily extract with low toxicity, highly effective at extracting desired compounds and leaving behind the undesired ones, and is much more economical to run than other extraction processes that are commonly used.
