Why CBD

We are CBD believers not only because we have seen the positive impact first-hand, but because it speaks to our biological systems (the endocannabinoid system to be exact), which is why our bodies metabolize and repurpose this biomolecule in the way we can use it most. Sounds like a snake oil, but it’s a superfood with the incredible strength to adjust imbalances within the body.

We believe in Whole Plant CBD because the whole flower is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s a powerhouse party and a unique combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids, proteins, enzymes and fatty acids are all present. Inflammation is a root cause for many diseases, it even creeps up on the most healthy people. CBD has properties that combat these imbalances and for this reason we believe it is something that EVERYONE should add to their daily routine. Preventative care is just as important as treating ailments (although CBD helps with those as well).
How does CBD work for so many maladies?

CBD mainly interacts with the body and throughout the brain via the Endocannabinoid system – the body’s “master regulatory system.”
By working synergistically with the ECS, CBD works as a “multi-target” therapy and is able to treat many things, as opposed to an analgesic pain medication, which reduces pain and nothing else. The core causation of many illnesses is due to an imbalance of key functions of the body, CBD is able to act as an effective preventative treatment for many different issues.


Our two main receptors can be found within our brain, nervous system, as well as peripheral organs and tissues


 
‘The Boy Scout Molecule’

CBD brings a plethora of physiological benefits with a virtual absence of negative side effects. As an adaptogen, a regulator and a modulator, CBD acts in a dynamic and comprehensive fashion to reduce general inflammation, decrease elevated blood pressure and will even neutralize the psychoactive component of THC. Scientists have referred to CBD as “the boy scout molecule”, in that it always does the right thing in any given situation.

WHOLE PLANT IS BETTER

The CBD Entourage Effect
As natural plant components interact with one another, and within the human body, they produce a stronger influence together than any one of those components could alone.  Specific compounds will augment and magnify each other’s effects, making the overall plant infinitely more effective as a whole than in isolation. CBD in particular works in perfect balance with THC, amplifying the benefits while neutralizing its psychoactivity.


Nothing does well in isolation which is why we have steered away from traditional CO2 extraction techniques


Our unique whole plant extraction technique allows full inclusion of all vital compounds in their natural form and therefore preserves the integrity of the plant.

1 + 1 = 5

When the compounds of a plant are combined in their natural state, we don’t end up with the sum of the parts; we receive a multiplying effect. Think of it as the difference between taking an ascorbic vitamin c tablet and eating an orange: the overall difference in the available nutrient profiles is immense.
