What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol (can•na•bi•di•ol). It is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the plant genus Cannabis Sativa. CBD accounts for up to 40% of the plant. The other prominent cannabinoid identified in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Since they present the highest concentrations in the plant, CBD and THC are the most recognized and studied compounds.
CBD is the non-psychoactive component of the plant while THC is the primary psychoactive constituent of cannabis. CBD offers a wide range of benefits without the "high" that is caused by THC.
The endocannabinoid system of the human body is responsible for regulating internal balance (homeostasis) and maintaining healthy cells. Endocannabinoids increase euphoria and reduce the perception of pain during exercise. Cannabidiol is another way of creating this feeling and boosting our overall well-being.
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil is derived from cannabis plants that contain high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and negligible levels of THC. The CBD oil harvested by PurMed is completely legal and is not considered a drug. It always contains less than 0.3% THC.
CBD extracts can be consumed in paste form or mixed with hemp seed oil in order to thin out the solution.
Also called hemp oil, CBD oil contains varying levels of cannabidiol depending on the actual cannabis plant it was extracted from and the preparation technique applied.
All CBD oil products from PurMed contain high concentrations of cannabidiol with less than 0.3% THC.
