And how can CBD help you?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoids found in hemp and the main component of our whole-plant, full spectrum hemp extract CBD products. While CBD is the one cannabinoid generating tons of talk these days, there are actually over 100 known cannabinoids in the hemp plant. While hemp is the most well known source of phytocannabinoids (plant-based), the human body actually has an endocannabinoid system that produces endocannabinoids (internal), similar to those found in certain plants, including hemp and other plants.
The phytocannabinoids produced by hemp, and found in our high-quality CBD oil, work in concert with our existing endocannabinoid system and the endocannabinoids it produces to help keep our mind, body, and spirit in equilibrium. We are still learning more about this system already present within our bodies, but it has been shown to help with numerous physiological processes, including homeostasis, sleep, mood, appetite, memory, stress response, and more.
It is important when shopping for CBD oil to make sure that you are buying from a company, like KYOTO BOTANICALS, that understands this system and how CBD oil derived from hemp can fit in. Hemp plants only produce cannabinoids in any measurable quantity in the leaves and flowers, so in order to have an effective CBD oil, it is important to buy from a company that is listing “aerial parts” on the label. Companies that are trying to pass off CBD oil that is created from seeds and/or stems are not selling CBD oil at all, as there are only trace amounts of cannabinoids found in these hemp plant parts.
There are also CBD products out there that attempt to spike their products with CBD isolate in order to hit a claimed level of CBD in the product. While this delivers an intended level of CBD, it does not deliver the broad spectrum of beneficial compounds found within the hemp plant. To make sure you are getting the best product possible, make sure you ask for and review the CoA from brands. The CoA for high-quality CBD oil will show detectable levels of not only CBD, but other beneficial cannabinoids as well.
