FAST FACTS

 

Cannabinoids are being produced by your body right now, however; your body could benefit from more – fortunately, we can extract and utilize cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. They are crucial for our body’s physiological processes, that when maximized achieve homeostasis. In layman’s terms they help the human and animal body fully synchronize so they can optimally respond to environmental forces.

CBD (cannabidiol), one of the many cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, found in marijuana and hemp. it is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid. It is known for providing tremendous benefits, including addressing inflammation and pain.

THC is an intoxicating cannabinoid, meaning it can affect your mood and behavior. It is responsible for the “high” feeling when consumed.

Hemp vs Marijuana – we call them Cannabis. 

Both are varieties of cannabis sativa plants -  and both produce therapeutic cannabinoids.  

Hemp typically has a high concentration of CBD and very low level of THC.  Hemp based products are 100% legal and are non-intoxicating.

Marijuana typically has a high concentration of THC and much lower level of CBD.  

Cannabigerol (CBG):

A non-intoxicating cannabinoid, CBG’s antibacterial effects can alter the overall effects of cannabis. CBG is thought to kill or slow bacterial growth, reduce inflammation (particularly in its acidic CBGA form), inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth.

Cannabichromene (CBC):

CBC is most frequently found in tropical cannabis varieties. CBC is known to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth.

 

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolates:

Full spectrum products contain CBD as well as terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, and THC. Usually these will be in ratios that were naturally-occurring and extracted from the plant and specific strain. Terpenes and cannabinoids are occasionally added back into products as an isolated form to raise the potency of the product. With full-spectrum CBD oil products, you have the advantage of something called the “entourage effect.” This is where all the cannabinoids and terpenes are working together in synergy, something that broad spectrum and isolate products lack.  Broad spectrum products are the full-spectrum less THC and Isolates contain only the CBD cannabinoid.

 

MCT:

MCT Oil is used as our carrier oil to assist in bioavailability. It is a concentration of fats found in coconut oil and it promises to deliver quick energy and a host of other benefits—from easier weight management to better memory and heart health.
