cbd 101

Many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals that have been ineffective, have harsh side effects, or that have the potential for addiction.  They also seek a medicine more in sync with natural processes.  Extensive scientific research and mounting anecdotal accounts from both patients and physicians highlight the potential for using extracts from the cannabis plant to treat a wide range of maladies.*

What is CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring plant compound found in the resinous flower of the cannabis sativa plant.  A natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory, CBD has also been shown to provide relief for anxiety, insomnia, depression, seizures, and more.  It does not produce a "high" or alter consciousness, is generally well-tolerated, and has been determined by the World Health Organization to be safe and non habit forming.  Cannabis extracts interact with and regulate the body's endocannabinoid system and may provide relief for symptoms while contributing towards the body's ability to bring itself into balance & wellbeing.*

What is CBG?

CBG (Cannabigerol) is another beneficial cannabis compound that is non-psychoactive.  It may be beneficial in helping to relieve pain, decrease anxiety, relax muscle tension, help regulate mood, and has anti-inflammatory properties as well.  Considered the "mother cannabinoid," CBG is believed to contribute to the “entourage effect” by working in synergy with other cannabinoids and terpenes.  Taken with CBD, CBG has been shown to enhance CBD's effectiveness.* 

What is full spectrum?

A Full Spectrum product is derived from a whole plant extraction and contains the complete spectrum of naturally occurring cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN, etc.), plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and plant proteins.  It contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC and does not have a psychoactive effect.  Many benefits come from what is considered the "entourage effect," meaning that CBD works better in combination with other cannabinoids, including miniscule amounts of THC, than when isolated.  Most find full spectrum products provide the maximum benefit.*

What is DELTA 8?

Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a naturally occurring hemp compound that is powerful for relieving pain, insomnia, anxiety, muscle tension, nausea, and loss of appetite.  It can also improve mood, and has been shown to reduce eye pressure in individuals with glaucoma.  It has a mild psychoactive effect not as potent as Delta 9 THC (Delta 9 produces the "high" felt with marijuana) and is therefore legal in most states.*
