Why We Support Naturally Occurring Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids wield an impressive array of therapeutic potential while being safeguarded from abuse and dependence. Cannabidiol (CBD) is non-intoxicating and is noteworthy for its ability to reduce pain and inflammation, relieve anxiety, mitigate seizures, and provide more restful sleep. Cannabinol (CBN) offers anti-bacterial properties, neuroprotection, appetite stimulation, and sleep benefits without fear of intoxication. Cannabigerol’s (CBG) non-intoxicating, proven benefits include aiding digestion, reducing pain and inflammation, and providing antibacterial properties.

Full-spectrum CBD oil contains the full range of cannabinoids (CBD, CBN, and CBG), terpenes, and other beneficial compounds found in hemp. Combining multiple cannabinoids with all-natural terpenes creates an “entourage effect” that amplifies each compound’s effects. Full-spectrum CBD products generally also include less than 0.3% THC—the intoxicating cannabinoid found in marijuana—allowing individuals to benefit from the therapeutic potential of cannabis without any psychoactive side effects. This makes full-spectrum CBD a popular choice for medical treatments like cancer chemotherapy, multiple sclerosis, and inflammation relief.
