Cannabidiol or CBD, is a promising phytocannabinoid found in agricultural hemp. It has been recognized for its benefits on human and animal health and is capable of affecting nearly every biological process. CBD is non-psychotoxic (i.e. it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile.
PlusCBD™ Oil is derived from agricultural hemp, and provides cannabinoids, naturally occurring vitamin E and fatty acids.
Phytocannabinoids like CBD, of which well over 100 have been found to exist, are plant derivatives that ‘talk’ to just about every major organ system in the body via the endocannabinoid system (ECS), helping restore normal balance and physiologic homeostasis.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
Since its discovery in 1992, researchers have been investigating the existence of a central regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The ECS is made of cannabinoid receptors and endogenous (self-made) cannabis-like compounds, also known as endocannabinoids. The ECS is one of the most important physiological systems involved in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and we still have so much to learn!
Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body. In each tissue, cannabinoids perform different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, maintaining a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
So, why is CBD important to the ECS? CBD is important to the ECS because CBD modulates endocannabinoid tone and may help keep healthy people healthy.
The Hemptourage Effect
More commonly referred to as ‘entourage effect,’ cannabis offers a complex biochemical matrix of many of the constituents in cannabis working synergistically. The idea is that all the compounds in the plant work together to optimize your wellbeing. These include naturally occurring fatty acids, terpenes, plant sterols, chlorophyll, and vitamin E.
Our PlusCBD™ Oil products are all made using full spectrum hemp extracts, giving you all the benefits of the whole plant so you can live on the Plus Side™ and thrive.
