What is Hemp Derived CBD?
Everywhere you look hemp has made its way to the forefront of today’s market. While some people may think hemp is the same as marijuana, this is not the case. Both are part of the cannabis family, but industrial hemp plants have no more than 0.3 percent THC, the compound that gives marijuana its psychotropic effects.
Hemp produces more CBD than THC and research has shown CBD reduces the effects of THC on the brain, separating it even further from marijuana.
One of the most widely researched and recognized benefits of hemp derived CBD is its role in reducing inflammation, which plays a role in many different illnesses. CBD reduces inflammation at the cellular level. This means CBD’s effect on a specific type of cell called oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPC’s), found in the central nervous system and is particularly vulnerable to damage. Researchers from Spain, Brazil, and Israel found that CBD protects OPC’s from cell death by blocking the stress caused from inflammation and oxidation.
In addition to hemp, adding organic whole foods gives our products extra benefits you won’t find in other hemp products. Organic foods such as turmeric, rosemary, and holy basil play major roles in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant support.
