Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 naturally occurring chemical compounds, or cannabinoids, found in the resinous flower of the cannabis sativa plant. CBD can be extracted from hemp or from marijuana. It is the most abundant non-intoxicating cannabinoid therefore not producing that feeling of being “high”.
Cannabinoids produce their effects by interacting with specific receptors located within different parts of the body. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and to a lesser extent in other tissues. CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs, primarily in cells associated with the immune system.
CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products. CBD and THC have the same chemical formula but the difference lies in the way the atoms are arranged and thus how and why they affect the body differently. Both CBD and THC are chemically similar to the body’s own endocannabinoids which allows them to interact with the body’s cannabinoid receptors. THC mainly binds to CB1 receptors in the brain that control pain, mood, and other feelings thus causing feelings of euphoria and give the feeling of being “high”. CBD does not activate the CB1 to the same extent therefore the “high” is not experienced.
The endocannabinoid system is a molecular system responsible for regulating and balancing many processes in the body, including immune response, mood, appetite and metabolism, memory, and communication between cells. It is through this system of receptors and metabolic enzymes that cannabinoids interact with the human body and trigger beneficial effects.
The hemp cultivated to source our CBD oil is grown sustainably in Colorado, using growing practices without chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers to produce all-natural, non-GMO crops. Once the plants are harvested, they’re ready for the extraction process using both subcritical and supercritical CO2 methods. This ensures getting the complete range of cannabinoids, terpenes, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber without any toxins, metals or chemicals.
In 2018, President Trump passed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill), which removed hemp as a Schedule I substance and reclassified it as an “agricultural commodity.” CBD derived from industrial hemp is legal as long as it is produced within the regulations defined by the law:
Because individual states have passed their own legislature regarding CBD, we recommend researching CBD laws in your particular state before purchasing.
When it comes to CBD products, it’s common to find three basic types: full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. Full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate all come from the cannabis plant, but while they may sound similar, there are some significant differences between the three.
CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid with less than 0.3% THC therefore not producing that feeling of being “high”.
Cannonau offers products that can be utilized in two different ways. The first is orally by placing the oil directly under the tongue sublingually or adding it to food or beverages. It can also be consumed by eating our CBD gummies which is an easy way to take your CBD on the go. The second way is topically by applying our specially blended balms to the desired area on the body. While there are many ways to take CBD, there’s no one right or best way. It’s important to try different methods and see what works for you.
Biological factors such as gender, weight, metabolism and general health influence how much and how often a person should take CBD. If you are new to taking CBD, it is recommended starting with a small dose and be consistent by taking it at the same time every day. After using CBD consistently for 5 days, you can gradually adjust your dosage if needed to achieve the desired effect.
Cannonau CBD oil is sourced from industrial hemp grown naturally in the state of Colorado and may contain trace levels of THC below 0.3%. Because there is a trace amount, we can not guarantee whether a person would pass or fail a drug test.
