CBD 

or Cannabidiol is one of the 100+ Identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and can account up to 40% of the plants extract.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The Biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors (CBRs) Cannabinoid receptor proteins are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral nervous system

Endocannabinoid

 Cannabinoids that naturally produced by our body Anandamide-Central or Peripheral Nervous System and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol- Regulation of Appetite, Immune System Functions, Pain Management 

Exocannabinoid

Cannabinoids that are found in plants

CB1 Receptor

Found mainly in our Central Nervous System (Spinal Cord and Brain) Direct Role in memory and cognition, emotion, motor control, appetite stimulation, and perception of pain

CB2 Receptor

Immune system- Responsible for mediating Cytokine release- Gastrointestinal System

Extraction

The Process used to remove the Cannabinoids from the Industrialized Hemp Plant

Solvent

Used in extraction process to dissolve certain substances

Super Critical CO2 Extraction

The Extraction process used for Full Spectrum Products Creates phase changes in carbon dioxide utilizing temperature and pressure. CO2 is known as a “tunable solvent” making it extremely versatile for creating a multitude of end products by controlling temperature and pressure

Broad Spectrum

0% THC or ND THC (Non Detected THC)

Phytocannabinoid-Rich

Other beneficial cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC)

Flavonoids

Terpenes

Essential Amino Acids

Full Spectrum

.3% or Less of THC

 Phytocannabinoid-Rich

Other beneficial cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC)

 Flavonoids

Terpenes

Essential Amino Acids

Isolate

ONLY CBD

Bi-phasic

The ability for CBD to aid in anxiety, energy, and focus in lower doses, while higher doses of same product aids in extreme pain relief and sleep

Entourage Effect

Results produced from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis • Reason behind why Broad or Full Spectrum products work better than an Isolate product

Synergy

The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects

What Is CBD Rich Hemp Extract and Where Does It Come From?

Myths

1. CBD comes from the Marijuana plant

2. CBD can get you “high”

3. CBD is the only oil in the plant that is useful

4. All CBD is the same

Facts

1. CBD Rich Hemp Extract can be extracted from BOTH marijuana and hemp plants

2. CBD Rich Hemp Extract from Industrial Hemp carries less than 0.3% THC (Full Spectrum Products) and Broad-Spectrum Products have a non detectable amount of THC

3. There are 100’s of compounds being discovered inside the industrial hemp plant that are being thrust into research today (CBG, CBN, CBC, CBA, CBD-V, THC-V)

4. Not all CBD Rich Hemp Extract is the same. In a recent study by UCONN over 100 products were tested and 67% of the products were labeled improperly.

6. There are numerous delivery methods; Topical, Sublingual, Water Soluble, Vaping, edibles etc.)

7. What is on the label is important, unfortunately the content inside the bottle is often mislabeled. Look for products with QR Codes that lead straight to a Certificate of Analysis

Supercritical CO2 Extraction

Pros

• Solvent is recycled, No waste

• Limits residual solvent

• More tuneability higher cannabinoid count

• Maintains terpene and plant waxes

• Safe and Well established

Cons

• More expensive equipment

• More technical ability needed

 Supercritical CO2 Extraction products lack chlorophyll and other plant material that creates a purer transparent color.

Solvent Extraction (Alcohol)

Pros

• Cheap and simple to run

• Can produce vape pen quality product

• Can be done at small quantities

Cons

• Solvents are flammable

• Damages plant waxes

• Wasted solvent
