HOW IS CBD MADE?

Hemp oil is 100% natural product that is extracted from the hemp plant, also known by its Latin name cannabis.

Since ancient times, mankind has been growing the hemp plant because of its health benefits, the fats contained in its seeds and the strength of the stalk fibers.

The substances contained in the hemp have a beneficial effect on the human body. The plant seeds contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids and the following vitamins: A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E.

The flowers and leaves of the plant contain over 400 organic compounds. They are divided into two groups – terpenes and cannabinoids.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

Cannabidiol affects the nervous system. The human nervous system contains a large number of receptors. One of the receptor systems in the human body is the endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS is a lipid signaling system that includes transmembrane endocannabinoid receptors, also known as CB1, CB2.

The receptors CB1 and CB2 connect to natural endocannabinoids such as 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG), which are involved in a series of processes, including appetite regulation, immune system regulation, and pain control. CBD, just like 2-AG, connects to these receptors and produces similar effects.
