Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a non-psychoactive, chemical compound found within the cannabis (hemp) plant. This means the CBD captures all of the therapeutic benefits of the plant without the intoxicating effects (from THC compound).
Cannabis plants contain many different beneficial compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Cannabinoids, commonly known as CBD, are well known for their therapeutic effect. Whereas terpenes are known for their calming effect. Flavonoids are the chemical compound that has been linked to anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective properties and even as cancer preventative.
Full spectrum CBD contains all of these wonderful compounds, which is why we use it in all of our products.
The science behind CBD suggests that the therapeutic effects are stronger when combined with other cannabis compounds, including terpenes, flavonoids and other known cannabinoids. Scientists refer to this as the entourage effect. Studies show that full spectrum CBD products may amp up the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits of CBD more so than other forms of CBD.
