Let’s start with the basics. CBD stands for cannabidiol, one of the more than 80 compounds, also called cannabinoids, that can be found in the cannabis plant.
The difference between hemp and marijuana relies on the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), primarily responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis, each of them contains. Contrary to popular belief, these two nomenclatures do not designate two “species” of cannabis, but the same species with different levels of THC. Those plants that have less than 0.3% of THC (by dry weight), are classified as hemp; on the other hand, those that contain more than 0.3% of THC (by dry weight) are called marijuana.SHOP NOW
In one way or another, the world is finally realizing that CBD’s pretty unique.
This uniqueness lies in CBD’s ability to interact with an equally unique biological system, a system that works behind the scenes to promote balance and health: the endocannabinoid system, or ECS.
The ECS is a natural internal network that promotes balance by promoting communication between one’s body — and itself.
Not literally, per se, but figuratively, by allowing various biological systems to communicate with each other. Deficiencies in endocannabinoid health can be devastating, while endocannabinoid sufficiency has been correlated with robust health. Here’s what the world’s leading ECS researchers say:
"More people will be saved by the manipulation of the endocannabinoid system than are currently saved by surgery."
