What is CBD and why all the buzz?

 

CBD (aka cannabidiol) is one of over a hundred naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. It helps provide natural relief for stress, anxiety, pain and inflammation and sleep issues.

 

How CBD works....

Our bodies produce cannabinoids that are uniquely programmed to provide therapeutic benefits. Phyto-cannabinoids are plant based cannabinoids found naturally in hemp plants. They interact exclusively with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), a vital system within human and animal bodies that supports the regulation of our mood, memory, stress, pain, energy balance and sleep.

When our endocannabinoid system is out of balance, it’s harder for our bodies to combat mental and physical stress. Cannabinoids help maintain our well-being by balancing our body's endocannabinoid system. 

 

THC vs CBD

The two most common cannabinoids you’ll hear of are CBD and THC. Whereas THC has intoxicating effects, CBD won't make you 'high'. CBD is expected to instead provide clarity of mind, focus and a sense of balance. 

CBG, CBC & CBN 

Consumers of CBD products might find relief from some brands but not others. This is most likely due to the cannabinoid profile of the hemp plant used to formulate the CBD product. Like THC and CBD, the remaining hundreds of cannabinoids have their own unique effect and benefit.

CBN, CBG and CBC, are the latest breakthrough cannabinoids exciting the health and wellness industry for their beneficial effects:

CBN - In studies on mice, scientists found CBN increased sleep time. CBN acts as a natural sedative and is considered the ideal cannabinoid for a good night's rest.

 CBG - Thought to naturally increase dopamine levels which help regulate mood. A recent study also found it to have promising anti-cancer properties.

CBC - This cannabinoid binds most effectively with receptors linked to the body's perception of pain. It's also has effective anti-inflammatory properties making it a potentially valuable acne treatment. 

Eve Farms hemp oils and pre-rolls contain CBD, CBC and either CBN or CBG. Other than our broad spectrum oil which has no detectable levels of THC, our products contain less than 0.3% THC.
