What is CBD and how does it work?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of 100+ compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called phytocannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied. We believe in synergic effect of all cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found naturally in the plants genetics and the entourage effect of the plant to be the most effective for most clients.

“Cannabis is inherently polypharmaceutical,” Dr. John McPartland notes, “and synergy arises from interactions between its multiple components.”

CBD does not cause a high, unlike THC. The reason why CBD is non-psychoactive is due to its lack of affinity for CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are found in high concentrations in the brain, and are the pathways responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC.

Around 200 terpenes have been found in cannabis. The terpenes in Cannabis have given the plant an enduring, evolutionary advantage.

Terpenes, it turns out, are healthy for people as well as plants. A September 2011 report by Dr. Ethan Russo in the British Journal of Pharmacology discussed the wide-ranging therapeutic attributes of terpenoids, which are typically lacking in “CBD-only” products.
