What Is CBD?
30th Nov 2020
CBD is a natural solution for health, wellness, and the active lifestyle you desire, but exactly what is CBD?
While CBD is wildly popular today, medicinal uses of the cannabis plant actually date back thousands of years. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the flower of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa.
Both hemp and marijuana come from Cannabis sativa, but they are distinguished by their levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Hemp is specifically grown to have low THC, and in fact, must contain 0.3 percent or less to be legal. The hemp plants grown in the rich soil of PURAURA’s family-owned farm test out at under 0.3% THC, well within the federal limits.
CBD is generally considered a safe, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive substance. It is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids which are unique to cannabis and give the plant its therapeutic characteristics. Scientific research supports the idea that it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which regulates and balances mood, immune response, cell communication, metabolism, and more.
Endocannabinoid receptors interact with the body to trigger these beneficial effects. And, growing research reflects the benefits of hemp for health issues such as anxiety, sleep issues, pain relief, and more. Because it is therapeutic, non-intoxicating, and easy to take, it’s an appealing option for people.
