What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the many beneficial compounds present in the cannabis plant, known collectively as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are the naturally occurring chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. There are over a hundred of them and they are responsible for the various effects cannabis can have on our body. Cannabinoids work by interacting with a large network of receptors in the body called the endocannabinoid system.
Today we are more knowledgeable of cannabis, and have a much better understanding of the science behind what makes it such an effective plant, which brings us to CBD.
Of all 100+ cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, there are two which are the most prevalent and
well-known – CBD and THC. CBD (Cannabidiol) is however one of the most important and beneficial cannabinoids. CBD is ‘non-psychoactive’ meaning it doesn’t induce any of the ‘high’ normally associated with cannabis. The ‘high’ effect comes from another known cannabinoid found in the plant, called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which interacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain,
making it psychoactive.
All our CBD is grown in a small hydroponic farm in the North of Italy, without the use of pesticides. The oil is extracted in small batches, and is free of any additives and preservatives. The carefully managed extraction process maintains all the vitamins and minerals naturally occurring in the cannabis plant. The known benefits of CBD are endless, and a large amount of studies have been conducted over the last few years. We urge you to do your own research before buying any CBD products, to make sure you know what you are buying and what to expect.
