  • Anti-microbial

Q. GRAS CERTIFICATION

__

Q. Full spectrum vs Broad Spectrum
A. Full-spectrum is a non-negotiable when we look at efficacy. Not only is the whole plant greater than the sum of its parts, but science shows that trace elements of THC unlock the CB receptors in the body. So, in order for CBD to work effectively and efficiently within the body the product needs to be “full-spectrum” (aminos, enzymes, fatty acids, terpenes etc).
__

Q. Potency
A. Biggest misconception with CBD is that more means more. Not only is there a point of absorption with in the body where excess is excreted out, but if you have high levels of CBD other levels (full-spectrum) can not be “as” present. So it is about a pure and potent form where less is needed for maximum efficacy.
__

Q. Dosing
A. There is no science behind dosing, several factors determine the needed levels of CBD; Metabolism, body weight and ailments etc...
__

Q. Endocannabinoid system (ECS)
A. Our master regulatory is responsible for regulating and modulating all activities inside the body. CBD works with the ECS to rebalance imbalances. We have two receptors CB1 and CB2 that can be found within our brain, nervous system and peripheral organs and tissues.
