What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring compound found in hemp that provides a myriad of health benefits without the psychoactive properties that make you feel “high.”

CBD may offer mental and physical relief. While some products contain both CBD and THC, Plenty Wellness products contain 0.3% or less THC.

Where does it come from?

CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the federally legal industrial hemp plant, along with over 110 other different cannabinoids. Because of its sturdy fibers, hemp has been used for a wide range of industrial and medical applications historically: it was used to build ships, construct homes, and make fabric for clothing.

What can it be used for?

The amazing thing about CBD is that it can be used in varying ways for a myriad of ailments. Scientific and clinical research, sponsored and supported by the US government, has found that CBD is an appealing option for pain-relief, inflammation, anxiety, and other conditions—without any lingering feeling of lethargy, paranoia, or dysphoria.

Is CBD psychoactive?

Recently, scientists have discovered the life-saving properties of CBD—hemp’s second-most concentrated and naturally-occurring cannabinoid. CBD is extracted and separated from hemp in oil form and then used in varying concentrations and delivery forms to provide relief to users. Since CBD products made from industrial hemp contain less than 0.3% THC, it cannot get you “high." Still, there is some stigma around hemp and CBD due to the potentially confusing terminology. CBD is the chemical found in hemp that offers medicinal benefits without any of the psychoactive properties (mind cloudiness, memory loss, etc.) that THC can produce. It is impossible to get “high” using CBD-rich hemp and CBD oil products. As a matter of fact, CBD actually counteracts the psychoactive properties of THC.

The Science of CBD

CBD History

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in hemp plants. It offers a variety of health benefits without any psychoactive effects.

CBD can offer mental and physical relief through several kinds of delivery systems. CBD is derived from the federally legal hemp plant.

Hemp is not a new plant! Its sturdy fibers have been use for centuries in industrial and medical applications. Historically, hemp has been used in ship and home building, rope making and cloth production.

How is CBD extracted?

CBD is extracted and separated from hemp as an oil, which is then used in varying concentrations and delivery forms to provide relief to users. Please note: because CBD is isolated from THC in the extraction process, CBD products do not produce the “high” associated with THC in cannabis. Plenty Wellness products contain less than 0.3% THC.

US government-sponsored scientific and clinical research has determined that CBD is an appealing option for pain relief, inflammation, anxiety, and many other conditions—without creating lethargy, paranoia, or uneasiness. 

The Endocannabinoid System

While the cannabinoids in Plenty Wellness products are extracted from hemp, our bodies also produce them. In fact, cannabinoids are even found in breast milk.

CBD takes advantage of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in our bodies. This important physiological system works in conjunction with our immune and central nervous systems to achieve and maintain a stable internal environment.

The ECS includes two types of cannabinoid receptor sites:
CB-1 (found in the central nervous system)
CB-2 (found in the immune system)

These receptors bind with cannabinoids to create a natural, healthy balance from the inside out.

Research has found that cannabinoids reduce the release of sensitizers from damaged tissue at injury sites. They stabilize nerve cells to prevent excess firing while calming immune cells to prevent the release of pro-inflammatory substances, resulting in the reduction of pain, swelling and further injury.

Even small doses of CBD signal the body to activate dormant receptors and help maintain the receptors' optimum capacity. This increases the body’s sensitivity to cannabinoids, allowing smaller doses of CBD to provide greater effects. In fact, it sometimes takes just a few doses of CBD to “wake up” the ECS and set the relief in motion as more receptors form. Please be patient.
