What are Cannabinoids?

CBD is a natural, non-intoxicating and non-addictive cannabis compound (cannabinoid) that is rapidly gaining popularity as a dietary supplement.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 113 Cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant Cannabinoid in cannabis after THC.

Hemp & Marijuana are different in many ways. In hemp, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, is non-psychotropic and doesn’t get you high.

Hemp vs Marijuana

Hemp and marijuana come from the same genus of flowering plant, Cannabis. The term “genus” refers to a sub-family of plants rather than a single species. This means multiple types of cannabis plants may exist while each having significant differences.
 
Hemp grows differently than marijuana, and looks similar to bamboo, with tall, fibrous stocks, very thin leaves and little to no flowers. Agricultural hemp is bred to produce low concentrations of THC and used to produce a variety of products including textiles, food and oils.
 
Marijuana plants tend to be short and bushy and are grown for their flowers. The THC content is high in these plants, with some strains containing in excesses of 30 % THC.
 
Our hemp-derived products have less than 0.2% THC. We provide healthy supplements, without the high.

What is the Endocannabinoid system?

Discovered in the early ‘90s, the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health.

The body actually contains numerous specialised cannabinoid receptors in the brain and other organs such as the liver, kidneys, and lungs, as well as in the immune and nervous systems.

In addition, our bodies naturally produce cannabis-like compounds known as endocannabinoids. The cannabinoid receptors, along with our self-made endocannabinoids and the enzymes that regulate their production and degradation, collectively make up the ECS.

Endocannabinoids function as messengers that communicate via the cannabinoid receptors to regulate numerous physiological and mental processes including appetite, sensation to pain, mood, and memory. The system’s interconnectedness and regulation of so many crucial functions are believed responsible for its wide therapeutic potential.

Where is our hemp grown?

Our hemp is organically grown in Europe.
 
To ensure the highest level of quality and product stability, we’ve partnered with one of the region’s leading CBD producers.
 
The CBD is extracted using a chemical-free process and tested for cannabinoid content, pesticides, contaminants, heavy metals and solvents. All of our products are non-psychoactive, non-intoxicating, vegan friendly, and chemical free.
 
Our hemp is EU-approved & certified. With no chemical additives, it is suitable for vegans. No GMO. Independently lab-tested and approved to have phytocannabinoids coming in above 2%. With THC levels less than 0.2%.
 
It is packed with powerful terpenes, vitamins, omega oils, fatty acids, chlorophyll & lots and lots of phytocannabinoids. 100% pure hemp, with no additives. Quality is assured.

What are the benefits of CBD supplements?

In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis. To maintain a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment and optimise health.

The scientific community is presently experimenting with CBD on a wide scope of medical applications. We encourage you to do your own research to determine if a CBD supplement is right for you. Feel free to start here :
