What is CBD?

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol which is a phytocannabinoid, a naturally occurring chemical compound found prominently in the hemp plant

CBD is a specific non-psychoactive cannabinoid – it doesn’t get you high -which positively affects all biological systems in the body via the endocannabinoid system and is known to promote a host of health benefits for both humans and animals.

Cannabinoids are a naturally produced and diverse class of organic chemical compounds that are found in all living things. Cannabinoids produced within plants are called phytocannabinoids. Cannabinoids produced within humans and animals are called endocannabinoids

There are hundreds of endocannabinoids contained in the human body that alter the release of neurotransmitters when acted upon our neural cell receptors (CB1 and CB2). These receptors are found throughout the brain and the body, with CB1 occurring mostly in the former and CB2 the latter. 

Photocannabinoids are almost identical in physical structure to endocannabinoids, which is why they can interact with the endocannabinoid systems in humans and animals.

Hemp and marijuana are both classified as cannabis species, however they completely differ in their appearance, chemical composition, cultivation and applications.

Marijuana plants contain a range of approximately 5-30% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for causing a high. 

Hemp, however, contains high levels of CBD and very low levels of THC (less than 0.3%). It is one of the world’s oldest domesticated crops and is finally making a comeback after it had been banned alongside its psychoactive relative, marijuana. Industrial hemp is now available for use in over 25,000 possible applications including: dietary supplementation, skin products, clothing, building materials and accessories

Absolutely not. CBD is non-psychoactive. There are no feelings of euphoria or sensations of being “high” or “stoned”.

Of course. Assuming the plant that the CBD has been derived from is high quality and farmed organically, CBD is proven to be completely safe and non-toxic

At Applied Botanics, we grow our own hemp and do not source it from other locations, ensuring that our products are organic and do not contain any pesticides, heavy metals, solvents or microbials

Legally we are not allowed to make any claims about the benefits of CBD. Always do your own research and consult your doctor before making any nutritional changes or incorporating a new dietary supplement regimen.  

CBD doesn’t heal anything directly, rather it supports the body’s abilities of self-healing and self-regulation by promoting homeostasis (balance/equilibrium). When we are stressed, overworked, sick or in pain it is easier for disorders to occur and cause us harm. Maintaining a balanced endocannabinoid system can help restore the optimal functioning of the body.

Reported benefits of taking CBD include:

  • improved mental health
  • reduction of stress and anxiety (including PTSD)
  • improved mood (calmness and tranquility)
  • anti-depressant
  • regulated appetite
  • improved memory and alertness
  • regulated sebum production for improved skin (anti-acne)
  • improved gut barrier function (stabilized metabolism and healthy digestion)
  • reduced nausea and vomiting
  • improved sleep quality
  • reduced pain and anti-inflammatory
  • reduction in epileptic seizures
  • inhibited cancer cell growth
  • anti-bacterial effects
  • supported bone growth
  • neuro-protective effects
  • reduced blood sugar levels
  • enhanced immune function
  • improved circulation
  • anti-psoriasis effects
