Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a compound that’s commonly found in the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. It is just one of several cannabinoids that are found in hemp and it is known to support our bodies and our minds in various ways.
SOLUBL’s Full Spectrum CBD is made from hemp, not from marijuana. While these plants are related, hemp contains only trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), the compound which produces the psychoactive effects of marijuana use.
Like all mammals, humans have a system of receptors in our bodies called the Endocannabinoid System. This system has two kinds of receptors, CB1 in our central nervous system and brains, and CB2 in our peripheral organs. Cannabinoids, like CBD, interact with these receptors and can help promote optimal functioning within our bodies.
SOLUBL uses Full Spectrum CBD which is derived from the whole hemp plant, which contains terpenes, flavonoids, essential oils, and other cannabinoids including trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). Research suggests that CBD is more effective in our bodies when these other ingredients and compounds are also present in what’s called the “entourage effect.” For example, the THC helps to bond all the molecules to the Endocannabinoid receptors, improving the performance of the products.
Research is just beginning on CBD and its effects on our bodies, so we’re continuing to find new benefits of CBD every day.
CBD is growing in popularity as more people discover its usefulness at maintaining health and wellness. Here are a few of the common benefits being studied for uses of CBD products.
