What is CBD?

CBD is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants. As of 2018, preliminary clinical research on cannabidiol included studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. It has been used to help relieve pain and for its anti-inflammatory properties but it has not been approved by the FDA to treat any of these conditions yet. As most people are familiar with the CBD compound, many others get overlooked because they are not as abundant as CBD. Research is also being conducted on other compounds in the cannabis plant such as CBG, CBC, CBN, Terpenes and THC to identify other uses.

Why is Full Spectrum important?

As mentioned above, there are many other cannabinoids that help our bodies other than the most commonly found CBD molecules. In addition to CBD, our products contain CBG, CBC, CBN, Terpenes and a small amount of THC. A lot of research has been done on the cannabis plant compounds individually in recent years. Research still has not been reviewed and approved by the FDA but further research is focused on investigating several of these compounds for use based on initial research findings. We are NOT saying that any of these uses have been FDA approved or verified in peer reviewed studies for these conditions, only pointing out where research is being focused.

CBG: CBG is a less known cannabinoid but one that is getting a lot of research focused on it for its perceived potential in anti inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-microbial properties.

CBN: CBN is being researched for its anticipated pain relieving, anti-insomnia, appetite stimulation and for promoting bone cell growth. It is also anti-convulsive and antibacterial.

CBC: CBC is being studied to further understand whether the cancer fighting and anti-inflammatory properties found in early studies are legitimate and repeatable. CBC has been the primary focus of much research and we hope to find out more about this compound in the future.

Terpenes: Terpenes are found in many plants and there are over 30 known cannabis specific terpenes. These terpenes give the flower and the end products the smell and taste but are also being studied for their own healing properties. Each terpene has its own unique effect as well as shared properties among all of them. Some terpenes are believed to be associated with appetite stimulation, relaxation, calming effects, focused effect, sleep aid and so on.

THC: THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Cannabinoid receptors are concentrated in certain areas of the brain associated with thinking, memory, pleasure, coordination and time perception. THC attaches to these receptors and activates them and affects a person's memory, pleasure, movements, thinking, concentration, coordination, and sensory and time perception, according to NIDA.

What should I expect and watch for as I take CBD?

The CBD will start working within 15-30 minutes of taking the product however results won’t be immediate and consistent applications lead to the best results. CBD isn’t a one-time quick fix for any problem and taking it regularly is the best practice.

Why THC and how will it effect me?

Since our product is a true Full Spectrum product, it contains all of the cannabinoids present in the plant. We started with a high CBD hemp variety that has a small amount of THC (less than 0.3%), because of this, our product also contains a small amount of THC but one dose it is not enough to create any "high" psychoactive effect.  While it is still being studied and is not fully understood why, early research indicates that full spectrum products containing trace amounts of THC are more effective than products that isolate the CBD compound on its own.
