What is the Endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is a group of neuromodulatory lipids & receptors in the human brain that are involved in a variety of physiological processes. Some of which include: appetite, pain reception, mood and memory. CBD/CBG products possess no psychoactive qualities.
Current studies into Cannabinoids offer a stream of evidence to show significant wellness and health benefits. There is growing evidence from the research of renowned scientists around the world into both cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system which demonstrate how cannabinoids can improve quality of life.
What are Cannabinoids?
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in the body: the CB1 variety which exists in the brain, and the CB2 variety which exists in the immune system and throughout the rest of the body. This essentially means that the human body was built for cannabinoids, as these nutritive substances play a critical role in protecting cells against disease, boosting immune function, protecting the brain and nervous system, and relieving pain and disease-causing inflammation, among other things.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a fantastic non-psychoactive cannabinoid which can bring a host of medicinal benefits.
CBD is one of the active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. CBD oils and waxes come from commercially grown hemp plants which are naturally high in CBD and low in THC.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found during the early stages of the growing cycle and can be extracted from budding plants roughly three quarters of the way through their flowering stage. CBG is one of the most valuable and potentially beneficial cannabinoids that we are currently aware of.
What are Terpenes?
Cannabis terpenes are secreted from the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD and are responsible for the aroma or scent of the plant.
Over 100 different terpenes have been identified with each strain having it's own unique terpene profile. Distinctive flavours like berry, citrus, mint and pine are commonly detected.
The most interesting characteristic of terpenes is their ability to interact synergistically with other compounds, for example: CBD and CBG. This wholesome synergy, commonly known as the entourage effect, offers a very unique and therapeutic experience.
Are CBD E Liquid's and other CBD\CBG products legal?
Hemp oil is legal in in over 40 countries around the world including Europe, the UK and USA. There are millions of CBD hemp oil consumers around the world.
Will I get "high" from CBD products?
No, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. CBD does not get you "high" and you can maintain a clear mind. It may however relive stress, anxiety, pain, aid sleep and much more.
How does hemp differ from marijuana?
Hemp is a type of marijuana but will not get you "high". Hemp or industrial hemp is a commonly used term for cannabis sativa plant strains that contain very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
