What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol is a component of the cannabis plant that is non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating. Research shows that CBD has great therapeutic potential, aiding with stress relief, anxiety, inflammation, muscle and joint pain. Scientific research regarding CBD continues to evolve, and further benefits are left to be discovered.
What are cannabinoids and the ECS?
Cannabinoids, which are also produced by the human body in very small amounts, are the primary compounds found in the cannabis and hemp plants. Cannabinoids play an important role in your body’s central nervous system and immune system. They work in your body’s Endocannabinoid System, referred to as the ECS.
The ECS is your body’s specific, interconnected network that’s only job is to maintain a balanced well-being. In other words, it’s your internal zen master that maintains homeostasis between your brain, body and gut. Cannabinoids are the fuel of choice for a balanced wellness system.
When your ECS is running smoothly a few incredible things happen; your nerves calm, your stomach soothes, your mind clears and your immune system functions optimally. We created unique plant based combinations with this in mind, each drink is crafted to enhance the functional properties of all the compounds in hemp extract.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and CBD Isolate?
Many people are unaware of the differences between CBD isolate and full spectrum hemp extract, which is what we use in PLNT Blend. Full spectrum hemp extract contains CBD as well as other cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, and CBG, and terpenes, which are a few of the plant compounds and many others yet to be identified in the cannabis and hemp plants. Examples of terpenes found in full spectrum hemp extract are pinene, limonene, humulene, and linalool. CBD isolate, on the other hand, is solely CBD; it does not contain any other cannabinoids or terpenes.
An important study out of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School, concluded that full spectrum hemp had more positive effects on targeting inflammation and pain, when compared to CBD isolate’s ability to combat biological and physiological issues. This 2015 scientific study came to its conclusion by comparing full spectrum CBD oil to CBD isolate.
