CBD
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a beneficial and completely legal substance (cannabinoid) found in the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
So CBD does not give a stoned or high feeling.
Extracted from the flowers and leaves of the female cannabis plant, CBD is known for its great affinity with receptors located throughout the body.
Endocannabinoid System, ECS
We humans, as well as almost all animals, have our own endocannbinoid system in our body.
This system interacts with cannabinoids. Since the ECS is located throughout our body, CBD, and in particular the full spectrum CBD, can be used to support the most diverse discomforts.
This system appears to play an essential role in our body’s own capacity for self-healing.
It turns out to be responsible for two important basic functions:
  • regulating pleasure and well-being
  • return the body to homeostasis (balance)
Full Spectrum CBD oil
CBD oil or extract derived from the entire plant that has finished flowering is called full spectrum CBD.
Full spectrum CBD contains, with the exception of the psychoactive compound THC, all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids present in the cannabis plant. In this way, optimal use can be made of their mutual cooperation.
The ‘entourage effect’.
CBD oil
In contrast to the full spectrum, this oil only contains the cannabinoid CBD.
CBD oil can be manufactured in a number of ways.
  • with CBD isolate of natural origin. Contains only the cannabinoid CBD
  • with CBD isolate of synthetic origin. Contains only the synthetic form of CBD
  • of the leaves and stems of industrial hemp that has never flowered in connection with EU legislation
Almost all CBD oils on the current market are natural or synthetic CBD isolate oils.
Unfortunately, this cannot usually be deduced from the labeling as CBD oils are not or hardly regulated within the EU, unlike in Switzerland.
Terpenes
CBD, THC, CBN and all other cannabinoids are essentially terpenes.
Terpenes occur in every plant and provide, among other things, the taste and smell of the plant.
Terpenes are traditionally known for their beneficial effects.
Cannabis contains a large number of terpenes that are found in several plants.
In addition, cannabis contains unique terpenes, which are only found in cannabis.
These are the so-called cannabinoids.
The ‘entourage effect’
Cannabis contains at least 400 different substances.
More than 110 of which have already been classified as cannabinoids.
According to researchers, there are clear signs of a ‘complicated relationship’ between all of these components in cannabis.
According to experts, the effects of cannabis do not depend on one or a few cannabinoids, but on the cooperation between all the cannabinoids, terpenes and other valuable substances in the cannabis plant.
Better known as the ‘entourage effect’.
