CBD or (cannabidiol) is a phytocannabinoid that was discovered in 1940 and is one of 113 known cannabinoids in cannabis-sativa L. plants ( both hemp and marijauna) and is a non-psychoactive compound.
Receptors in the brain known as the endocannabinoid system, is how our brains receive any and all cannabinoid compounds when ingested or inhaled. The (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. Although CBD is also present in marijauna plants that are rich in THC or (tetrahyrdrocannabinol) the predominant psychoactive compound in marijauna , CBD is typically extracted from Industrial Hemp plants that are grown for the purpose of extraction as well as industrial applications such as fiber, paper, building materials, plant-based plastics and even clothes. While the studies of CBD and its health benefits are in their infant stages due to former prohibitions and laws denying universities and the federal government the ability to study the effects of CBD on humans, many are discovering the vast health benefits of CBD from personal use and experience. Certain groups and activists have taken the lead in studying CBD and funding their own research for the sole purpose of helping people understand the vast possibilities that lie within this mysterious cannabinoid. As studies are performed we are now starting to realize the benefits of other cannabinoids such as CBDA, CBN, CBC, and CBG which is the building block for all cannabinoids. CBG is essentially the stem-cell of cannabinoids and has great potentials on its own.
Secreted from the same glands in hemp and marijauna plants that encapsulate cannabinoids such as THC or CBD, Terpenes are flavor and aroma compounds that play a key role in differentiating the effects various strains provide. This is what is known as the entourage effect. For instance a Purple Kush strain will have heavier, relaxing body high effects while a Blue Dream strain will have more uplifting and creative cerebral effects on the mind rather than body. While many have thought for a long time that these various effects were provided by the strains sub-category of indica or sativa, scientists have now discovered that the way a strain effects ones body or mind is based solely on the terpene profile and the entourage effect, and are saying now that indica or sativa are no longer a real sub-category of hemp or marijuana plants. When consuming CBD or THC products its always best to have a product that provides the cannabinoids along with their original terpene profile so that you get the natural desired effect of that specific strain. With RISE CBD you’ll always get the original terpenes in their original ratio as nature intended it. Although we may provide a little extra flavor or perhaps an organic sweetener to make it more palatable as hemp or marijauna terpenes can be somewhat stringent on the tongue, you’ll always get your cannabinoids as nature intended.
