WHAT IS CBD AND WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
That's a great question — and one many people are asking these days. First off, CBD is the acronym used for cannabidiol, one of the over 100 different cannabinoids found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Both CBD and THC are considered a phytocannabinoid. (That's just a fancy way of saying their molecules is made by plants.) Many plants such as black pepper, echinacea, and even cacao contain cannabinoids. Cannabis just has a much higher concentration of them. Any phytocannabinoid will interact with your endocannabinoid (ECS) system. Hemp is a type of cannabis grown specifically with a higher level of CBD and very low level of THC.
How CBD works
in the Body.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU HAD
If you've ever taken biology, you've probably learned about a few major systems in the body — the nervous system, digestive system, endocrine system, immune system — to name a few. But you most likely never had a pop quiz on the Endocannabinoid system. Learn more about this relatively recent discovery in the human body and why it matters to you.
Plant extraction techniques
matter more than you think.
Although CBD is naturally abundant in the hemp plant, extracting it from the plant in quantities high enough to experience hemp’s benefits is a bit of a process. There are three main types of hemp extraction - Steam Distillation, Solvent Extraction and Carbon Dioxide or CO2 Extraction. While each process has its benefits and drawbacks, we believe the cleanest, highest quality extraction methods is CO2 extraction. This method creates the highest quality hemp extract, with a process that's also safer and better for the environment.
