What is CBD?

CBD is a chemical compound (Cannabidiol) from the hemp plant with a variety of uses. The cannabis and hemp plant contain over 100 organic compounds called cannabinoids, the two most abundant are typically THC and CBD.

What distinguishes a cannabis plant from a hemp plant are the levels of these compounds in the plant. Any cannabis plant with a THC level above .3% is considered “Marijuana”, a plant with .3% THC or less is considered Industrial Hemp.

Large amounts of THC is what gives the user a “high” or “intoxicating” effect. Industrial hemp plants are bred to have high CBD and low THC, delivering the therapeutic benefits of both cannabinoids without the “high”.

Since the FDA approved the first CBD medication, hundreds of studies have shown positive benefits from both THC and CBD.
Many studies have also shown that CBD and THC work together, along with other compounds known as terpenes and flavonoids, to form a synergistic effect referred to as the ‘entourage effect’.

Simply put, specific ratios of CBD, THC, and other compounds are very important in formulating a superior product. The amount of CBD present is not the only factor influencing the effects of a CBD oil.

How CBD Works

One of the main ways CBD and THC impact us is by mimicking and augmenting the effects of the compounds in our bodies called “endogenous cannabinoids” - so named because of their similarity to the compounds found in the cannabis plant. These “endocannabinoids” are part of regulatory system called the “endocannabinoid system”.

The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience – our mood, our energy level, our intestinal fortitude, immune activity, blood pressure, bone density, glucose metabolism, how we experience pain, stress, hunger, and more.

What are consequences of a chronically deficient or overactive endocannabinoid system? In a word, disease.

Science has shown that the endocannabinoid system is dysregulated in nearly all pathological conditions. Pal Pacher and George Kunos, scientists with the NIH, suggest, "By modulating the endocannabinoid system and enhancing endocannabinoid tone, CBD and THC can slow – or in some cases stop – disease progression.”
