The Cannabis Story
Every major civilisation in history has recorded Hemp as top on its list of important plants. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks and Romans all revered it as an incomparable source of food and medicine. In addition to the long list of properties that Hemp’s Cannabinoids possess, modern science has discovered what may be the most exciting one.
We are hard-wired with a system of Cannabinoid receptors throughout our brain and body. When these receptors are activated they permit 2-way communication between body systems, something that the science books had previously taught was impossible.
Bringing the body back into harmony could be as simple as replacing this lost nutrition.
What are cannabinoids?
Scientists have identified close to 500 phytochemicals in Hemp plants. Many of them, hundreds in fact, are Terpenoids. These are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavours and other special properties. A special sub-class of Terpenoids are the Cannabinoids.
There are over 60 of them found in Hemp/Cannabis which is the only place they are found. This is one of the many reasons Hemp stands alone in the plant kingdom, it literally is a treasure chest of nutrition without equal.
CBD is short for Cannabidiol the most predominant Cannabinoid in Hemp and is endowed with many beneficial properties.
In its patent the US Government makes many impressive claims about CBD stating that:
“Cannabinoids are potent antioxidants…they easily penetrate tissues giving them the ability to enter the central nervous system and brain.”
“Non-psychoactive Cannabinoids such as CBD are particularly advantageous as they are non-toxic…and exhibit unique antioxidant properties without the undesirable effects of THC.”
“The antioxidant strength of CBD is significantly greater than that of either Vitamin C or Vitamin E.”
CBD Oil is safe for the whole family. According to prominent Cannabis physician and researcher Dr. William Courtney, non-psychoactive high CBD Cannabis should be considered a dietary essential.
- Terpenes are naturally occurring ingredients in the plant that contribute towards the smell and taste of the plant.
- That is why the product tastes differently now that they are included.
- Scientific reports are indicating that terpenes add to the beneficial effects of the CBD oil.
About the CBD Oil:
- Lighter-Colored CBD Oil: Tinctures will now be a golden-amber color; lighter than past formulations, which were a dark amber. That’s because of the new processing methods for extracts that yield higher potency CBD oil with lower chlorophyll content. The advanced CO2 extraction equipment pulls less chlorophyll into the extract during processing.
• Improved Flavor: Lower chlorophyll in your CBD means a smoother taste profile, too. Removing more chlorophyll from the CBD extracts will reduce the intense, earthy taste that can sometimes come with full-spectrum CBD. The result is an improved taste experience for you, along with a more potent oil.
