Cannabidiol (CBD) Information

Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring health-benefiting compound is most notably found in cannabis.  What you may not realize is that cannabinoids are also found in other plants such as hops, echinacea, electric daisy, helichrysum umbraculigerum, liverwort, black pepper, kava, Chinese rhododendron, and orange rind.  Our bodies even make a type of cannabinoid compound called endocannabinoids which play a part in the function of or neurotransmitters.

The most common source of cannabidiol is from the Cannabacea family of plants. The Cannabacea family includes approximately 170 species of plants and 11 genera including Cannabis (hemp and marijuana), Humulus (hops) and Celtis (hackberries).  There are more than 113 different cannabis-derived cannabinoids. CBD oil is derived from industrial hemp which is grown for higher fiber content and a low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive substance in marijuana) content. As a result, CBD oil provides health benefiting properties without the psychoactive effects that marijuana causes.  

Hempseed Oil (Hemp Oil) is not the same as CBD oil.  Hempseed oil is made from hemp seeds and is an excellent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid.  It is known to benefit the skin and has anti-inflammatory properties.  

CBD Precautions:  Do not use if pregnant or nursing.  May cause nausea, fatigue or irritability.  Do not use if taking blood thinner medications.  May have the same reactions with some medications in your blood with the same mechanism as grapefruit juice.
