CBD: AN OVERVIEW
Leanna Organics offers a large selection of CBD products to balance your endocannabinoid system.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is a compound in a class called Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids have been proven to interact therapeutically with what scientist have identified as the “endocannabinoid system” in humans and animals.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is not intoxicating – in other words, it is not mind-altering.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp & cannabis plants. CBD is the most prevalent cannabinoid in the hemp plant, as opposed to THC, which is generally the most prevalent cannabinoid in the Marijuana plant.
WILL IT SHOW UP IN A THC DRUG TEST?
THC is what elicits the high that marijuana is known for, it is what is tested for in a drug test.
Leanna Organics CBD is grown from Industrial hemp, not marijuana, and we use “zero THC” CBD. However, even “zero THC” CBD has trace amounts of THC present. Therefore those who get drug tested should be cautious of using Leanna Organics CBD or any CBD, as there is no way to completely remove THC from the hemp plant.
WHAT DOES YOUR TAGLINE “ACHIEVE BALANCE” MEAN?
The endocannabanoid system is a signaling system, When we take CBD we balance our Endocannabinoid System, and it signals to our organs and body that homestasis has been achieved.
CBD IS LEGAL!!!
On December 20, 2018 President Trump signed the Hemp Farming Act of 2018. Legalizing CBD nationwide. CBD manufacturers must be able to prove that their CBD is grown from hemp and contains less than .3% THC. All Leanna Organics orders ship with third-party independent testing results.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD GROWN FROM THE MARIJUANA PLANT AND CBD GROWN FROM HEMP?
Leanna Organics CBD, and any CBD that contains .3% THC or less, is grown from industrial hemp. CBD is primarily found in hemp, but some strains of marijuana have CBD. Products that have both THC & CBD can only be sold in dispensaries in states that have a Medical Marijuana program or recreational program.
Humans have a network of neurons throughout their bodies called the Endocannabinoid system. The receptors in your Endocannabinoid system are called CB1 & CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain and, to a lesser extent, along your spine. THC interacts with CB1 receptors. CB2 receptors, on the other hand, are found throughout the immune system, traveling in our blood and through most of our organs, inside nerve terminals, and many more places throughout the body. Depending on application and measurement, Cannabidiol molecules bind to a vast network of receptors throughout the human body. Researchers are still exploring what happens once this bind occurs, but one thing is if for certain; CBD works!
WHAT CAN CBD HELP WITH?
Researchers have nicknamed CBD the “swiss army knife” because of the potential to bind to receptors that are centralized in our immune system and appear throughout our body tissue, muscles, and even the spine. CBD can be best thought of as a supplement because it replaces a compound that our bodies make endogenously.
TYPES OF APPLICATION OF CBD
Internal application – CBD can be taken internally with various degrees of bio-availability. The main difference between internal and external application is that CBD taken internally reaches your bloodstream. Therefore, internal application is most effective for internal issues. Examples include CBD isolate, Vaping, tincture, orally, smoking, pills.
External – CBD can be applied externally everyday for skincare and wellness. External examples include: Body cream, salve, foot cream, lip balm, face cream, eye serum.
How much CBD should I take?
There is no known level of toxicity for CBD in the human body. However, there is a matter of bio-availability and point of diminishing returns. Also each individual is different, so we broke down our guideline into two categories:
Maintenance: For everyday rejuvenation and care. It is recommend to take CBD internally (tincture, isolate) at a measurement of 5 – 25 MG per serving. Topicals are to be used daily for skin care or as needed for discomfort. .
Therapeutic: It is always best to consult a physician for serious matters. CBD is recommended to compliment and help at a measurement of 25- 100 MG orally per serving.
HOW SHOULD I TAKE CBD?
Everyone is different, and different problems must be address differently.
internally: It is important to get CBD into your blood stream, for this Leanna Organics offers CBD oil (tincture), and CBD isolate which is a powder that can be added to food, drinks, or vaporized.
topically : Leanna Organics offers serveral topical solutions to apply CBD to the skin: Salve, Body Cream, Lip Balm, Foot Cream, Vapor Rub, Face Cream, and Eye Serum.
