1. WHAT IS CBD?
CBD comes from the word "cannabidiol" and is one of over 60 active chemical compounds (or ‘cannabinoids’) in the hemp plant but is also produced by other plants and the human body. A system within the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has receptors that these compounds fit into, like keys in a lock, using cannabinoids to support cells and healthy immune system function.
2) ARE THERE STUDIES ON CBD?
Thousands of scientific studies have been carried out specifically on CBD. Project CBD is a non-profit organization strictly dedicated to documenting the research progress on CBD and gathers studies from all around the world.
3.) WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within a mammal's body. Scientists discovered this system in the 1990s.
Research initially suggested endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the brain and nerves, but scientists later found that the receptors are present throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.11 We now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. Endocannabinoids are arguably one of the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules known to man.
Before cannabis prohibition, hemp and marijuana had been used for thousands of years. Traditional healers may not have known why the plant was effective but their experience demonstrated its effectiveness and provided the basis for later scientific inquiry. The discovery of the ECS revealed a biological basis for the therapeutic effects of plant cannabinoids and has sparked renewed interest in cannabis as medicine.
Research has shown that small doses of natural cannabinoids from hemp and other plants help support the ECS and enhance its signaling. This suggests that small, regular doses of naturally occurring cannabinoids from hemp and other plants might act as a tonic to our most central physiologic healing system.
4.) WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND THC?
THC affects the brain by binding to naturally-occurring CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a differently-shaped molecule that binds to CB-2 receptors in cell and body tissues outside the central nervous system.
5.) WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT?
The Entourage Effect is a phrase coined in 1998 by two Israeli scientists to describe their findings that taking the entire spectrum of natural chemicals found in cannabis is more beneficial than only taking a single molecule compound.
6.) WHAT MAKES THE LIVING TREES SPAGYRIC HEMP EXTRACT DIFFERENT THAN ALL THE OTHERS?
The Living Trees spagyric hemp process is combining ancient wisdom to modern day chemistry practices so that is takes full-spectrum to a whole new level. Our processing is gentle and allows us to get as close as possible to the natural biochemistry of the hemp plant.
The Spagyric method is the only way to retrieve the mineral salts found in the fibers of the plant and it is recombining these salts with the final extract that creates the most “mineral rich” hemp product on the market.
A Little Chemistry....
From a chemical standpoint, the mineral salts neutralize the organic acids of the plant. This converts the acids of the plant to their ester form yielding soap-like compounds. What was once oil soluble, is now water soluble. This form is more bioavailable, making the plant's compounds more potent and effective.
7.) HOW MANY SERVINGS ARE IN EACH BOTTLES OF HEMP EXTRACT?
The 30mL bottles contain 30 1mL servings. The dropper on all 30mL bottles holds .5mL of oil.
8.) CAN I TAKE SPAGYRIC HEMP WITH PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS?
We recommend consulting your physician prior to adding cannabinoids with naturally occurring CBD to your daily routine.
9.) WILL CBD SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
A high-quality CBD product with minimal THC is incredibly unlikely to show up on a drug test. However, low quality CBD products may contain more traces of THC than they claim, in which case it is possible for a screening to pick up on the drug. (Research has shown that people who consume 6 mg of THC per day have a 25% chance of failing a drug test. This translates to about 2,000 mg per day of CBD oil with a THC content of 0.3% or less).
