An Introduction to CBD.

 

The general population assumes that all CBD is created equally and has the same benefits. 

Contrary to popular belief, this statement is false! CBD is a vast topic and cannabinoid that is part of the Cannabis plant. There’s more to it than meets the eye and today you’ll learn the science of CBD and it’s variables.  


What is CBD?


CBD is short for Cannabidiol. This part of the cannabis plant has no intoxicating components making it a safe daytime option for your health regime.  

CBD is the non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. After THC, CBD is the second most predominant cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. 

CBD can be sourced from cannabis and from hemp! 

 CBD is known to help aid in the treatment of an array of conditions and symptoms such as pain, anxiety, arthritis,  and it can be a seizure suppressant.  All CBD isn’t created equally and it’s important to know what the labels mean before you choose a CBD that’s right for you.


CBD is non-intoxicating so it can be used during the day to ease your pain.
Inflammatory pain is vast and not limited to, all forms of arthritis, some autoimmune diseases such as chrons and other digestive issues that cause spasms and pain, and simple conditions such as headaches, PMS, and muscle soreness and recovery from exercise and physical work.

What’s great about CBD also is that it works without the risk of damaging your liver, heart, or cause gastrointestinal issues like NSAIDS can do.
As the demand for CBD increases, the research into CBD goes up.
Athletes are turning to CBD to help aid in recovery after working out to reduce inflammation and give them the relief without the harmful effects of repetitive use of pain medication.


There are new reports stating that CBD is up 20 times more effective and potent when it comes to anti-inflammatory magic than NSAIDs such as ibuprofen. More and more people are becoming more health-conscious and realizing that pain pills aren’t all they're cracked up to be.

What are the types of CBD?

Full Spectrum CBD


Full Spectrum CBD refers to the whole plant being used in the process of making CBD oil. This means it contains all the phytocannabinoids such as THC, THCA, CBN, CBC, & CBG.  This way you’re getting the full benefits and all the cannabinoids work together to give you the best CBD experience.


*There can be trace amounts of THC in CBD oil but it has to be less than 0.3%, so there is no fear of intoxication.


Broad Spectrum

It contains all the phytocannabinoids and is full of CBD, but has no trace amounts of THC. 

 

Nano CBD


Nano CBD is truly unique. It’s a process when the CBD molecules are shrunk down to extremely small sizes and are in exchange turned into a water-soluble form. This means the CBD can blend into beverages easily and it allows the CBD to pass through the body at a much more rapid speed, allowing faster absorption and effectiveness.  CBD is a hydrophobic molecule, this means it doesn’t mix well with water. When nanotechnology is used, we are able to bring the molecules down in size and they blend into our beverages seamlessly.


Hydrated Leaf uses this technology, So you’re getting quality CBD at a faster rate. This method ensures the fastest bioavailability with easy and fast absorption in the body, thanks to the nano infusion science.


CBD Isolate


This is the isolated CBD compound. When extracted, we are left with a white powdery substance that is pure CBD.  This contains no phytocannabinoids.

 

CBD is vast and more information is being researched daily! The benefits are incredible and well worth trying for yourself.  Using CBD regularly is proven to mood-boost, de-stress, aid in better sleep, reduce pain, and overall improve the quality of your life.

 

How cool is that you can take a plant-based medicine with no bad side effects that actually work. When looking for a CBD product to help you, Look for products sourced in Canada. We have options of hemp-derived CBD and full-spectrum CBD .

When choosing a CBD Canadian sourced hemp or cannabis is your best and safest bet! Canada has regulations in place to protect us from bad products. It does still happen but most CBD products are tested in a Health Canada approved lab. When you buy CBD sourced from other countries, you’re risking ingesting contaminated CBD. Other countries use harsh pesticides and can have mold on their plants. This is not safe and not fit for human consumption. Be aware of where your CBD comes from!
