About CBD

What is CBD?

CBD = Cannabidiol

a phytocannabinoid (cannabinoid produced in the hemp plant)
a non-addictive, and non-intoxicating hemp compound
a chemical that helps regulate and balance a number of biological functions
it interacts with our body's receptors to produce numerous therapeutic effects
it is one of 113 identified cannabinoids
CBD has no psychoactive properties



Interesting fact: CBD was discovered in 1940

How does CBD work?
CBD works with the endocannabinoid system within our body CBD does not directly attach itself to CB1 and CB2, but influences them
activating these receptors is what allows for many of the health benefits that people experience when using CBD


Interesting fact: ECS was discovered in the 1990s

Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)'s primary role is to maintain homeostasis (maintaining stability of your internal environment)

ECS influences:

-appetite and digestion
-inflammation and other immune system responses
-learning and memory
-motor control
-cardiovascular system function
-muscle formation
-bone remodeling and growth
-liver function

Reported by the WHO
“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”*

From the USA Department of Health and Human Services
The United States of America as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services confirm in the US Patent #6630507 that “cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties.”

The patent continues, “This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”

Continuing, this patent states, “Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity.” The patent continues to confirm “No signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol (CBD) to healthy volunteers, even in large acute doses of 700mg/day.” The United States of America owns this patient and confirms “The present invention is believed to be particularly beneficial in the treatment of oxidative associated diseases of the CNS.”
