Cannabis contains more than 80 unique compounds called “cannabinoids.” Two of the most common found within the plant are THC and CBD (otherwise known as Cannabidiol). Of all the cannabinoid compounds, these two have received the most extensive scientific study.
CBD is not “pychoactive.” In other words, it does not produce a euphoria, a mood change, or a different state of mind, the way that THC does.
Despite being legal in a few states, marijuana continues to remain illegal under Federal law. Thankfully, CBD can be made from the mature stalks of the industrial hemp plants and can be legally imported into the United States under Federal Law. This allows consumers to get the CBD treatments they need without fear of violating any Federal Laws.
The percentage of both CBD and THC varies depending on the type of plant. Industrial hemp has no virtually no THC, while marijuana grown for recreational use tends to have much higher levels of THC and lower degrees of CBD. Specially-bred industrial hemp contains the highest amount of CBD. This is what we use for our study.
Our CBD is sourced and processed and has been fully vetted to comply with current laws and government standards.
CBD companies not at liberty to make medical claims on the potential health benefits of CBD. We encourage you to do your own research. A 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, as well as a 2003 U.S. Government Patent, found that CBD acts as an antioxidant, reducing free radicals that can cause neurodegenerative disorders. The 2013 study, along with the clinical trials performed in the 2003 patent claims a list many potential health benefits. These and other credible sources can be found with your own due diligence.
The U.S. Patent Office issued patent #6630507 to the U.S.Health and Human Services filed on 2/2/2001. The patent lists the use of certain cannabinoids found within the cannabis sativa plant as useful in certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and HIV dementia. Read More
