What is Cannabidiol CBD? — What do we know and what we don’t?
CBD is one of the most common cannabinoids found and extracted from the stem, leaves and flowers of cannabis plants. Plants with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. When consumed, this powerful cannabinoid works by regulating the endocannabinoid system, naturally enhancing the communication between certain receptors and systems that we will explain in more detail below.
As well as CBD, there are hundreds of other cannabinoids in these plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of them!
CBD is a safe, non-intoxicating substance and offers enormous therapeutic potential.
How many types of CBD are on the market? — Let us explain each one.
Isolate – contains only CBD, with no other cannabinoids.
Broad or Wide Spectrum – Broad or Wide Spectrum refers to a hemp extract that contains all cannabinoids in the hemp plant except THC.
Full Spectrum – contains all cannabinoids naturally found in the hemp plant, including THC.
Why Full Spectrum is important ?
Full-spectrum CBD oil is sometimes called “whole-plant” oil as all of the natural compounds of the hemp plant are used allowing you to receive greater benefit as the natural occurring properties come together to work their magic. So much so, studies have shown these properties work together to enhance the effects of CBD by nearly 400% – a phenomenon known as the “Entourage Effect”.
At Elysium we firmly believe in quality, so we make sure you receive the very best and most effective CBD on the market. Which is why we use Full Spectrum Cannabinoid in every single one of our products.
Could CBD make you High? — Let talk about THC.
Our CBD products will not make you high.
