the science of CBD
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is comprised of a vast network of cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoid molecules, and their metabolic enzymes. It's an essential molecular system that the human body uses to maintain homeostasis. The ECS is also involved in many physiological processes like appetite, sleep, digestion, mood, memory, metabolism, neuro-protection, hormones, and heart function.
The body’s endocannabinoid system has two cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2.
A majority of CB1 receptors are located in the brain and are associated with cognitive actions related to coordination, mood, thinking, memory, and appetite. The CB2 receptors, on the other hand, can be found in the immune system. This makes them more responsible for the body’s response to pain and inflammation.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, attaches to the CB1 receptors, which explains why smoking or otherwise ingesting marijuana affects users on a cognitive level.
However, CBD impacts the CB2 receptors. And it does so indirectly, not by attaching to the CB2 receptor, but by enticing the body to make more of its own cannabinoids. This creates a positive effect on the body’s pain and inflammation responses.
CBD & CBG...what is it and how does it work?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis/hemp plant. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it's not psychoactive and does NOT get you high.
CBD is one of over 75 cannabinoids that can be extracted from cannabis/hemp.
Scientists have found that the synergistic effect of these compounds is far more powerful than isolating and extracting CBD alone.
In a ‘Full Spectrum Hemp Extract’ you will find Cannabinoids (CBD, CBG + 75 other cannabinoids), Terpenes, Flavonoids and beneficial plant material
CBG, or cannabigerol, is one of over 75 cannabinoids that can be extracted from hemp.
Scientists have found that the synergistic effect of these compounds is far more powerful than isolating and extracting CBD alone. So we here at Sacred Peacock take great love in to providing you as much of whole plant goodness as we can.
Scientists are finding that CBG is actually more powerful than CBD.
While CBG presents a similar benefit profile to CBD, additional benefits are being seen in people with the following health issues: irritable bowel syndrome, dementia, Alzheimer's, autism,
Quick answer… No... they’re different!
CBD and CBG come from special strains of the hemp plant that are grown to produce CBD & CBG dominant cannabinoid profiles. Marijuana is also a specialized strain of the hemp plant grown to produce a THC dominant profile. (THC is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana).
By definition, hemp (as opposed to marijuana) contains no more than .3% THC - Hemp naturally has higher levels of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound known for helping human bodies maintain health and overall wellness.
So although they are closely related, marijuana and CBD hemp strains are different and produce different results.
Quick Answer….. Unlikely
As a full spectrum hemp extract, The Sacred Blend contains over 75 cannabinoids including cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG) phytocannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes; and may therefore contain trace amounts (less than .3%) of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is present in trace amounts in hemp plants. The legal limit of THC in hemp is no more than 0.3%.
*If you are subject to drug testing we suggest consulting your health care provider before consuming any hemp products. The possibility of trace, but legal, amounts of THC in Sacred Peacock products are factors to consider.
All of the cannabinoids (CBD, CBG ….) in The Sacred Blend are generally well tolerated and considered safe. As with any supplement, there’s a chance that it could cause adverse reactions and/ or could interact with certain medications (Specifically medications that interact with grapefruit). Consult your physician before use if you’re pregnant, nursing, or are taking medications.
