What the heck is CBD? Why use #FEELGOOD CBD?
If you’ve been curious about CBD but don’t understand what it is or what all the hype is about; this post is for you…
What the heck is CBD Anyway?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol
The CBD found in hemp oil is quickly becoming the focus of widespread medical and scientific research. It’s growing popularity is saturating the market with products that vary in potency and quality. Choosing the right company and product can be daunting. Here is some information about CBD to help you make informed decisions (i.e. choose #FEELGOOD).
CBD is the single most prominent naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in industrial hemp plants.
Cannabidiol is “a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect,” meaning that you will not become intoxicated if you consume CBD. After THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol), hemp CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered and might have great potential when it comes to increasing vitality in both animals and humans.
Growing hemp for CBD – We use Otto II
CBD from hemp is not unlawful. Hemp is cannabis that grows as nature intended. Hemp is naturally rich in cannabidiol, while most marijuana is carefully cultivated to be high in THC and low in CBD. Hemp is grown from specific cannabis varieties that have even higher levels of CBD naturally, so it doesn’t make legal or practical sense to obtain CBD from marijuana.
Otto is a strain of hemp that can have a wide range of CBD: THC ratios, presumably with varying terpene profiles to match. It’s a strain that could also help benefit a wide variety of conditions and ailments. Otto II, the strain our manufacturer grows exclusively, can have ratios even higher than the original, potentially up to 40:1 CBD: THC, which is beyond the CBD potency of anything else available, including Charlotte’s Web. For this reason, they exclusively use Otto II and laboratory test every batch of oil.
Hemp vs. Marijuana – Growing hemp for CBD instead of marijuana
If CBD can be found in marijuana, why grow hemp? The answer to that is easy: CBD from hemp is legal. Hemp is cannabis that grows as nature intended. Hemp is naturally rich in cannabidiol, while most marijuana is carefully cultivated to be high in THC and low in CBD. When hemp is grown from specific cannabis varieties that have even higher levels of CBD naturally, it doesn’t make legal or practical sense to obtain CBD from marijuana.
Through a combination of our manufacturer’s unique cultivation, advanced plant genetics and growing techniques, an exceptionally high percentage of CBD can be produced naturally and consistently in the hemp plant. And through the application of proprietary technologies, certain companies have perfected a means of extracting CBD from hemp with an almost 99% purity rate, creating legal and non-psychoactive CBD-rich hemp oil. Because the federal government considers hemp distinct from marijuana, cannabinoids found naturally in the hemp oil and hemp products face no legal restrictions and may be freely imported to the United States and in most of the industrialized world.
At #FEELGOOD, all of our products are derived from agricultural hemp, meaning they are the best way to obtain the benefits of the cannabis plant legally.
