HOW DOES CBD AFFECT THE BODY?
CBD works directly with the ECS system (described below) and influences functions such as sleep, the immune system and pain receptors.
WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery, is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems and organs. Consisting of neuro-modulatory lipids and their receptors. In other words, it is a set of biochemical communication regulatory mechanisms dealing with cannabinoid-like substances (endocannabinoids) naturally produced by the human body in general and the brain in particular, where receptors are concentrated in areas associated with thinking, memory, coordination, pleasure and time perception. The ECS is one of the more important biological control systems, which help regulate major bodily functions.
Full Spectrum CBD oil contains, cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, a variety of essential vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, with a trace amount of THC (below 0.2%).
Isolate CBD oil, only contains cannabinoids, with a slightly lower trace of THC (0.05%).
Full Spectrum CBD oil is considered to have a higher effective absorption rate and longer lasting effects. This is known as the Entourage effect.
Entourage effect, results when the many components within the cannabis plant interact with the human body to produce a stronger influence than any one of those components alone – it’s a synergistic effect.
SUPERCRITICAL CO₂ EXTRACTION
The CBD oil is extracted using a process known as supercritical CO₂ extraction. It is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO₂) to extract phytochemicals (such as CBD or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. At certain temperatures and pressures CO₂ acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most sophisticated extraction method and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method.
