Cannabinoids (like CBD, THC, CBN, CBG) are complex chemical compounds that act on receptors in cells. Cannabinoids, like CBD and THC, are produced by both the hemp and marijuana plant. However, unlike THC, you will feel neither intoxicated nor “stoned” when consuming a CBD product, assuming the THC is at 0.3% or less. The hemp and marijuana plant are both genus of cannabis sativa, but with varying differences.
- Marijuana typically grows with higher percentages of THC (psychoactive; causes “high”), and lower percentages of CBD (non-psychoactive; no “high”).
- Hemp grows with higher percentages of CBD, and lower percentages of THC.
The minuscule glands (trichomes) of the hemp plant that excrete cannabinoids also produce terpenes, which are what gives both hemp and marijuana their distinct aromas. Terpenes are not exclusive to the cannabis sativa plant, and can be found throughout nature. In addition to providing these pungent aromas, terpenes are used to attract pollinators, to repel pests and herbivores, and they’ve been used by humans for beauty and pharmaceutical products for centuries.
Although terpenes are naturally occurring in full-spectrum oil, which we use in the majority of our products, we further enhance the benefits of our products by including higher concentrations with our proprietary terpene blends. We aren’t just relying on the medicinal benefits of CBD with our products. We include cannabinoids (prodominantly CBD) and terpenes at very specific concentrations because CBD and terpenes work synergistically. We also include additional therapeutic plant compounds, which have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety effects. Listed below are examples of the various plant extracts and terpenes included in our proprietary blends, as well as their associated therapeutic benefits.
All ingredients are added by our staff toxicologist and pharmacologist with precision and intention.
