What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over a hundred chemical compounds in the hemp plant known as cannabinoids. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found within the hemp plant which offers relief from pain and other symptoms without the “high” associated with its tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) counterpart or other pharmaceutical drugs.

It’s gaining momentum in the health and wellness sector as more scientific studies confirming it may ease symptoms of different ailments like pain, depression, anxiety, skin conditions, heart, and might have neuroprotective properties.  Visit our resource page to view different studies and research.

Types of CBD

Will CBD get me high?

No, CBD derived from the hemp plant is known for its non-intoxicating effects, while some may feel an uplifting effect that is not the same sensation as being “high.” 

Modes of Using CBD

There are many different modes of consuming CBD products depending on the ailment you are looking for relief from.

Edibles or infused foods are a discrete way to try out CBD. It’s important to note that this method is passed through your digestive system which may take a few hours to process also lowering the absorption to around 20-30%.

Sublingual products or tinctures are another discrete methods that can be consumed under the tongue which is a quicker mode of absorption directly into the bloodstream without bypassing through the digestive tract. Tinctures may offer the best bioavailability (absorption).

Topicals, lotions, and salves can be applied directly to the skin to help with localized pain or skin conditions.

Combustible options include smoking CBD or hemp flower, vaping, or consuming concentrates. Smoking allows the CBD to go directly into your bloodstream allowing the effects to felt much quicker.

What to buy? Full Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum vs Isolate

Full Spectrum products contain all the cannabinoids found within the hemp plant including both CBD and THC, Terpenes, Anti-oxidants and Flavonoids. Full spectrum CBD products will contain less than 0.3% THC (Legal Limit). Scientists believe full-spectrum products provide the best health experience because of the full spectrum of plant compounds and naturally occurring cannabinoids.

Broad Spectrum products contain most of the cannabinoids but do not include THC. Broad Spectrum can be considered a mix between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate as it contains the entire spectrum of cannabinoids besides THC.  This is a great option for the military, first responders, teachers, or those that may have to take a urinalysis test as it contains zero traces of THC.

The “Entourage Effect” is multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and all the compounds of the hemp plant that work synergistically together to increase there wellness benefits of  CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, and THC to reap the full benefits of the plant.

CBD ISOLATE is a crystalline solid or powder that contains 99% pure CBD. A traditional extraction process is used to remove all the active compounds of the cannabis plant followed by a refinement process that further strips away any phytocannabinoids from the compound. This process leaves CBD isolated in its purest form.

Why we choose ethanol/CO2 extraction

There are a few methods used to turn raw hemp into crude/distillate oil. While these methods have their pros and cons, the best and safest practices for product purity and the environment are complex.

In the early stages of extracting, supercritical CO2 and butane were the most commonly used methods. The former quite costly, time-consuming, and almost too effective, the latter flammable and dangerous. As the process is evolving, ethanol is a method of choice among many trusted companies as it is safe, effective, and retrieves the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes.

Ethanol and Supercritical CO2 – Reputable Choices

Ethanol Extraction 

The plant material is put into a filtration device, ethanol is then passed through and dehydrated to dissolve the cannabinoids. Then using heat and vacuum, the ethanol is evaporated leaving behind cannabis oil.

The crude/distillate cannabis oil must then be refined further to reduce THC content to below the legal .3% limit for full spectrum products and to 0% for broad spectrum.

Any residual ethanol, occurring in minuscule amounts, has been found to increase absorption of the molecule in your cells.  Companies intentionally add ethanol to their final products for that reason.

This is why tinctures have traditionally been delivered in an alcohol base. According to the Pharmaceutical Plant Company*, “Alcohol is an excellent solvent for herbs because it can extract the compounds and active ingredients that aren’t water-soluble, such as essential oils, alkaloids, and resins. It’s also the only edible solvent that can effectively extract the ingredients required.”

As ethanol extraction popularity increases, these traditional extraction methods are increasingly more efficient and environmentally safe. Manufacturers are increasingly switching to this safe and highly effective method. 

Supercritical CO2 extraction is another safe and costly way to separate CBD from the fiber.

Breaking down this complex process into simple terms, are three steps:

  • Extraction with CO2 that has been heated until it reaches both liquid and gas properties.
  • Separation – a quick reduction in pressure separates the CBD resin from the CO2, then the CO2 is recycled.
  • Purification also known as winterization, uses an ethanol bath to separate unwanted plant material. Then as in the ethanol process above, it’s heated and spun.

Do you utilize third party testing?

While it is not required by the FDA, it is a general good practice for a company to offer third party full panel lab testing of their products. Third-party testing ensures transparency for the consumer and is something consumers should look for when shopping for CBD online. 

The purpose of a third party lab test is to have a neutral, unbiased source examine a company’s CBD products. Since there aren’t current FDA regulations on CBD products offering a third-party full panel lab test provides consumers with peace of mind for the product they are purchasing causing them less likely to fall for scams, false advertising, and inaccurate potency claims, or an unsafe product. 

All of our products go through rigorous third-party lab testing to provide transparency, potency testing, and cleanliness. We utilize reputable laboratories that provide full-panel testing results to include complete cannabinoid & terpene profiles, pesticides, heavy metals, microbial bacteria, yeast, mold, salmonella, and residual solvents. We assure you that each product you consume or use topically is safe and effective. 

A copy of the COA is also provided in each of Nature Therapy’s product descriptions. 

How to Read a Lab Report

Is CBD a cure all product?

While there are many claims buzzing around the internet about the health and wellness benefits of CBD there are not enough academic studies done yet to provide conclusive evidence on the subject. In 2018 the FDA approved Epidiolex for reducing seizures for those with severe forms of epilepsy. To date, the alleged health benefits of CBD such as chronic pain relief, anxiety, and depression, sleep problems, and other health ailments have not been fully proven by human studies although there have been animal studies that are indicating the medicinal properties of CBD. 

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of these studies is in part due to the Medical-Grade, high-quality CBD products versus over-the-counter products people are shopping in convenience stores. 

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a biological system within the human body that was first discovered in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The Endocannabinoid System is comprised of Endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes that help regulate various human functions such as sleep, mood, memory, appetite, reproduction, pain sensations and more. ECS plays an important role in central nervous system development, synaptic plasticity, and the response to internal and environmental factors. 

Two primary endocannabinoid receptors are CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and the nervous system, the peripheral organs, and tissues. They and are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid ligand (binding molecule), anandamide. CB2 receptors are predominantly in the body. One other main endocannabinoid, 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), is active in both cannabinoid receptors, along with its own mimetic Phytocannabinoid. CBD 2-AG is involved in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions, and pain management.

Layman terms = Experts believe the overall function of the Endocannabinoid System is to create Homeostasis (BALANCE throughout the brain & body), which is what Cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC) are designed to support by nature. 

You can learn more about the Endocannabinoid System in our blog post located here.

Description of the Skin

The skin is the largest organ of the body with a very complex structure that contributes to homeostasis (balance) and provides the first line of defense against injury and infection. It’s important to be aware that the skin is porous and will absorb 60% of what you put on it which is why you may sometimes find yourself having a reaction from low quality ingredients vs. all natural alternatives.

The Skins Endocannabinoid System

It has become evident in the last 30 years that the Endocannabinoid System plays a relevant role in healthy and diseased skin.  Numerous cell types in the skin have been shown to host different Endocannabinoid molecules and receptors. There is ongoing research on the positive effects of cannabinoids and the skin’s endocannabinoid system CB1 and CB2 receptors. There are also studies that show cannabinoids have a positive effect on psoriasis, and chronic inflammatory skin disorders.

The Skin’s Endocannabinoid System comprises endogenous endocannabinoids present in virtually all of our tissues. Their G-protein- coupled cannabinoid receptors CB1 & CB2, biosynthetic pathways, and metabolizing enzymes have been implicated in multiple regulatory functions in the different layers of our skin.

This system has two main receptors CB1 & CB2, that cause the skin to signal our DNA, producing a protein that stops the production of pain and inflammation-causing production of arachidonic acid.

The main function is to control the proper well-balanced proliferation, differentiation, and survival of our skin cells, creating Homeostasis (balance). The disruption of this delicate balance may facilitate the development of multiple pathological skin conditions like acne, allergic dermatitis, itching, pain, and psoriasis.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a group of compounds found in the hemp plant with over 100 cannabinoids currently identified. The most common cannabinoids are THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, and CBG. Cannabinoids produce their effects by interacting with specific receptors CB1 & CB2 in the brain and body located within different parts of the central nervous system thus regulating how cells communicate.

Cannabigerol (CBG) is the mother of all cannabinoids and the precursor to both CBD and THC. CBG may help decrease inflammation, discomfort relief, stimulate appetite, reduce anxiety, glaucoma, improve focus, better mood, antimicrobial effect, and act as a neuroprotectant.

Cannabinol (CBN) is a minor cannabinoid that may help relieve discomfort, slow inflammation, promote restful sleep, provide muscle support, stimulate appetite, promote rest, and act as a neuroprotectant.

Cannabichromene (CBC) is a minor cannabinoid that may help regulate the immune system, relieve discomfort, and provide inflammation support.

CBD Isolate is a THC-Free crystalline solid or powder that contains 99% pure CBD.  An isolate is a great option for someone looking for CBD only or to supplement the beneficial effects of the full spectrum and broad spectrum tinctures.

What are Cannabinoids

What are CB1 and CB2 Receptors?

CB1 and CB2 receptors were identified over 30 years ago. Endocannabinoids found throughout your body bind to these CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the brain and body.

CB1 receptors are found in the brain and the central nervous system while the CB2 receptors are found throughout and in your peripheral nervous system, more specifically immune cells. Endocannabinoids bind to either receptor, depending on where the receptor is located changes the effect.

What is the Entourage Effect?

The theory that cannabis/hemp compounds work in concert together to create unique effects in our body is known as the “entourage effect.” Specifically when we consume THC and CBD as well as other known cannabinoids it creates unique effects and health benefits within our body. There is another theory that exists, created by Dr. Ethan Russo that believe that terpenes play a strong role in the entourage effect as well. 

It’s important to note that when shopping for CBD products (full-spectrum CBD) provides you with the full benefits of the entourage effect.

Scientists have discovered that Full Spectrum Products will have better health benefits due to the Entourage Effect, rather than just one cannabinoid isolated by its self.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants, although they are more commonly associated with the cannabis plant. Terpenes create the characteristic scent offered up by a plant such as lavender, pine, rosemary and orange scent. This scent is often used by the plant for protection or reproduction, but can also be used for their health benefits to humans. 

Due to the vibrant smell that terpenes produce many people utilize terpenes in essential oils which becomes an integrative part of aromatherapy helping with stress and leveling someone’s mood based on the specific scent they are working with. 

New research also indicates that terpenes may have health benefits; when combined with cannabinoids, they produce a synergy that may aid with inflammation support, stress, mood, and discomfort from our ailments. Plenty of terpenes that you encounter regularly include fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, and other botanicals.

Commonly found terpenes in the cannabis plant include: limonene, pinene, linalool, myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, humulene, and many others. Each of these terpenes offers specific therapeutic benefits based on their scent. 

Some common ones include:

Alpha-pinene is the most common terpene in the plant world. Pine promotes alertness and memory by the metabolic breakdown of acetylcholinesterase, a neurotransmitter in the brain that stimulates cognitive effects.

Beta-caryophyllene is a sesquiterpene found in black pepper, oregano, clove, and many green leafy vegetables. May provide relief from ailment discomfort and provide inflammation support because it binds directly to the peripheral cannabinoid receptor CB2.

Limonene, a major terpene found in citrus plants, is thought to be uplifting, help boost mood, and have powerful antimicrobial action to help fight against bacteria.

Linalool, a terpenoid found in lavender, may help with skin conditions, inflammation support, and aid in ailment discomfort when applied topically.

Myrcene found in mangos may help the muscle to relax, relieve discomfort, and provide inflammatory support.
