CBD is one of many compounds found in Cannabis plant; The main compound found in the Cannabis plant is THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. CBD can make up about 40% of cannabis extracts depending on the special genetics of the strains of the plant.
CBD is well known to have a broad pharmacological profile, offer numerous health benefits and is used as a nutritional supplement, in body care products, food, textiles, and phytoceuticals, to name a few.
Different methods, some more efficient than others, can be used to extract and classify all the compounds -known as cannabinoids- found in the cannabis plant, this is a process which requires high standard and expressly qualified laboratories.
CBD is well known to offer numerous health benefits, has a broad pharmacological profile and is utilized to make many different nutraceuticals.
CBD interacts with our Endocannabinoid System’s receptors (CB1 and CB2) known to regulate fear and anxiety-related behaviours, chronic pain, inflammation and arthritis; CB1 receptors are found in the brain, and spinal cord and CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune and gastrointestinal system.
It is necessary to mention that CBD does NOT induce a “high” in your brain as THC does.
Our Broad Spectrum CBD oil is extracted from the plant, and while keeping the rest of the beneficial cannabinoids including CBD, CBG, CBC, CBDV, CBDA, BCP, terpenes and Omega 3 & 6, all the THC is removed.
We use all these cannabinoids in our food supplements, and animal products to get the full benefits from them.
CBD will help you with a variety of health conditions, but it won't get you "High"
The Cannabis plant is an enormous fountain of phytochemicals, and in recent times have seen a revival in interest in the therapeutic potential of compounds derived from them, specifically, the nonpsychoactive compound cannabidiol or CBD.
The story of the cannabis goes back in time to NorthEastern Asia to Neolithic times; Scientific evidence shows that for millennium's people have been using cannabis plants for fibre producing and employing the therapeutic properties of the cannabis plant's natural compounds.
The first recorded evidence was found in a Chinese herbal compilation dated 200 AD where was described how the compound was employed to cure different deceases and also applied as an anaesthetic.
Most people consider CBD a modern substance but CBD history starts back to 1940 when Roger Adams, a chemist graduated from Harvard University successfully extracted and isolated the CBD compound from the Cannabis sativa plant; Some years later, on 1946 was Dr Walter S. Loewe who carried out the first CBD test on lab animals demonstrating that Dr Adam’s CBD isolated cannabis product was not a hallucinogenic.
The analysis, examination and experimentation continued but it was not until the early 19th century when in-depth scientific studies began to validate the widely accepted knowledge that cannabinoids have beneficial effects over our health and wellbeing.
THCs were first extracted from cannabis in 1942 by Wollner, Matchett, Levine and Loewe, most likely as a mixture of Δ8-THC - and Δ9-THC. The structures of CBD and Δ9-THC, each of which occurs naturally, were described in Raphael Mechoulam's laboratory in 1963 for CBD and in 1964 for Δ9-THC when it was first isolated from cannabis; Time passed and he presented wide and strong research supporting that CBD is effective in Epilepsy, alleviating symptoms like depression, anxiety, pain, inflammation and sleep problems, amongst others.
Actually science continues actively working to give these cannabis-derived products a more extensive and scientific knowledge base.
