The discovery of the Endocannibinoid system signals a huge leap forward in our understanding of how cannabinoids work with our own receptors throughout the human brain and nervous system. THC is well known as the active ingredient in cannabis, which due to its pleasant side effects, has led to the criminalization of the plant across the western world. This despite the cannabis plant’s established place in health and healing, established over centuries. Science confirmed what folklore had intuited. We are hard-wired to respond to the health-giving properties of natural cannabinoids. Receptors in our brains and throughout our nervous system (endogenous) are designed to work with exogenous (from outside the body) cannabinoids, much like a lock and key to alleviate a wide variety of symptoms.
Renewed interest in Cannabidiol (CBD) the second most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis, has freed the versatile hemp plant from the stigma of illegality and abuse. This has facilitated the development of high quality CBD oil and pastes with proven health benefits. CBD can be taken internally as an oil or capsule, while CBD paste, or oil can be applied externally. Our CBD products are not psychoactive and can be used safely by all. We are indeed fortunate that farmers and growers have responded to the increased demand for therapeutic cannabis; and are now focusing on the cultivation of low THC strains.
