WHAT IS CBD AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic, non-psychoactive therapeutic chemical compound found in the cannabis plant that belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. CBD is one of over 113 cannabinoids that have been identified in the cannabis plant. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are the most popular and recognized. CBD is known for having a wide scope of benefits without the psychoactive effects in THC. You get all the benefits without the buzz.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system that has receptors inside our brain and nervous system and is actually designed to work with cannabinoids. When the receptors are activated, they enable two-way communication between the body systems. CBD interacts with these receptors and stimulates beneficial changes in the body.
CBD is becoming increasingly popular for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits.
Research shows CBD has helped people who have:
• Multiple Scierosis
• Chronic Pain
• High blood pressure
• PTSD and anxiety
• Diabetes and many more
Although CBD is in the marijuana plant, Dreemweaver CBD uses pure hemp-derived CBD isolate that contains minimal amounts of THC. Dreemweaver CBD is straight from an industrial hemp farm in Colorado that produces pure and clean, testing above 99 percent, CBD isolate.
Interestingly enough, the same endocannabinoid system that is present in humans is also present in pets!! So, CBD can help your furry friends as well.
Since hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states, there are many companies selling CBD online or at your local gas stations. However, the CBD industry is not completely regulated and research is still being completed. Use caution and do some research before buying your CBO.
Our product line includes edibles, drops, capsules, pain creams, skin products, and pet products. Please call or email for more information and pricing. Our wholesale pricing schedule makes this process a whole lot cheaper than retail, while preserving a top-notch quality product.
Full Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum vs CBD Isolate – Differences explained
Within the cannabis/hemp plant, there is a classification of compounds known as cannabinoids. The most popular are CBD and THC, along with over a hundred others which scientists have discovered naturally occurring within different strains.
In 1995, researchers discovered that, by interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), cannabinoids like CBD could deliver unique health benefits to the body. Later, they discovered that each cannabinoid could affect the body differently.
For example, while THC delivers the psychoactive effects with “getting high”, CBD does not. With various ranges of effects delivered by the hundreds of other cannabinoids, the full collection of cannabinoids forms the “cannabinoid spectrum”. As you’ve probably figured out, the cannabinoid spectrum range contained within a product is what determines whether the product is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.
To create a CBD product, the cannabinoid content is extracted from the plant using methods such as CO2 extraction. During this process, other compounds found within the plant are also extracted, including terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. Once extracted the company can then choose to refine the extract to contain only specific cannabinoids.
In scientific terms, an isolate is the purest form of a compound, which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its environment and isolating it from all other compounds. It is extracted from the hemp plant due to non-existent THC content.
• Purest form of CBD
• No risk of psychoactive effects
• Generally considered safe
• Tasteless and odorless
• Will not test positive for THC
• Doesn’t deliver the enhanced
• Benefits of the entire plant
CBD that has been extracted from the cannabis plant along with all other compounds and cannabinoids, except THC.
• Offers full benefits of the plant (entourage effect)
• May have natural flavor & odor (usually is flavored)
• Less availability
• No risk of psychoactive effects
• Best for individuals with conditions that CBD isolate couldn’t alleviate
All cannabinoids extracted including THC.
• Offers full benefits of plant
• Undergoes fewer processes
• May have psychoactive sedative & other
• Possible unwanted side effects
• May show up on drug tests
• THC- content may cause legal complications
• Strong natural odor & flavor
Which is best for you? CBD isolate may do the trick. For others one step above to broad spectrum may be needed for the entourage effect. And lastly, some may want the full monty, full spectrum. It may take some time and experimenting to figure it out.
In closing, I want to reiterate that any one type isn’t better than the others. There are many factors that determine how a cannabinoid will impact the body, such as chemical makeup of the individual, the weight of the individual and the individuals history with other substances.
