In Cannabis there are over 80 Cannabinoids, and over 125 terpenes that each cause unique effects. Many have been shown to have therapeutic value and CBD is no exception.
CBD is just one of many cannabinoids, which are 21-carbon molecules, that interact with our body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Where CBD differs from many cannabinoids is that it is non-psychoactive and will not give you the sensation of being “high.” CBD Isolate takes it another step ensuring it is THC free, whereas Full Spectrum CBD has a detectable/testable amount of THC up to 0.3%. Cloud 9 Cafe uses CBD Isolate for all of our products so that it can be more accessible to those working professional careers or for those who would not like to have any THC in their system.
CBD derived from hemp is legal in all 50 states and it is up to the state whether or not they want to embrace it. With how CBD interacts with our body we would hope that everyone fully embraces CBD with open arms. The ECS is the largest neurotransmitter system in the brain and CBD interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors to help bring the body to homeostasis.
The list of potential benefits from CBD is extensive and with numerous studies it has been shown to help those suffering from epilepsy, PTSD, cancer and additionally it is a neuroprotective that helps preserve brain matter.
