What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol belongs to the cannabinoids, i.e. substances that are present in cannabis plants (Latin Cannabis). CBD is the second most important cannabinoid after THC.

How is CBD different from THC?

To date, scientists have been able to find more than 100 types of cannabinoids in cannabis. The best known are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (cannabidiol) or CBC (cannabichromene). But CBD, unlike THC, has no psychotropic effects, which means that it does not change the state of consciousness and does not cause intoxication.

But like THC, it has medicinal effects on the human body. CBD thus offers the opportunity to fully legally take advantage of the positive effects of cannabis on human health without side effects, and also without the need to have a prescription from a doctor.

What are the specific healing effects of CBD?

The effects of CBD and other cannabinoids on human health are being intensively studied by scientific teams around the world. Research suggests that CBD can effectively reduce the effect of stress on the human body. And stress (often chronic) is now considered by experts to be one of the biggest risk factors in the development of a number of diseases, not just civilization diseases.

CBD reduces anxiety and relaxes and harmonizes the body and mind, thus helping to alleviate or improve a number of difficulties. It has beneficial effects in combating insomnia, anxiety, digestive disorders or depression. Researchers have also shown that cannabis can effectively relieve joint or muscle pain, and thus helps patients with rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis, for example.

Thanks to its ability to relieve the accumulated effects of chronic stress, CBD can also help treat a number of serious diseases – CBD does not cure diseases itself, but its use can help alleviate the side effects of treatment or related anxiety, depression or insomnia. CBD is one of the substances currently being studied by researchers across disciplines. Some breakthroughs have already been made, for example, in research focused on fighting cancer or childhood epilepsy.

How exactly do cannabinoids, including CBD, affect our body?

Cannabinoids affect the human body through the so-called endocannabinoid system. It is a complicated system that regulates and ensures various processes in our body, including vital functions such as reproduction or food intake. In practice, it affects everything from our mood through motor functions, functioning of the immune system, perception of pain to digestion.

The main task of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain homeostasis, i.e. a stable internal environment of the organism. In the endocannabinoid system, the body naturally produces so-called endocannabinoids, substances that bind to cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are found in various parts of our body – in the central nervous system, in the immune, reproductive or digestive system, or in the skin. Through these receptors then endocannabinoids affect important processes in our body.

Cannabinoids from cannabis behave similarly in the body – they also bind to cannabinoid receptors and affect processes in the body. And it is precisely the questions where cannabinoid receptors are distributed throughout the body and what reactions can be triggered by plant cannabinoids that scientific teams are currently working on.

Is CBD legal?

Yes. CBD, which is used not only in the manufacture of our products, is obtained from marijuana, but from the so-called technical hemp which contains only a minimal amount of THC. The cultivation of technical hemp is permitted in most countries of the European Union, including the Czech Republic, with certain regulations. The CBD substance itself is then completely legal – it has no psychotropic effects.

Do your products really contain no trace of THC?

No. In our products you will find only pure CBD extract, which is then processed into various forms – tinctures, roll-ons and e-liquids.

How often should I use CBD and how much will it cost me?

On average, one filler for your inhaler or one tincture is enough for a month of use. Of course, it also depends on what life period you are in and how high a level of stress you are exposed to. The amount for monthly use then corresponds to the price of the product. An exception is the roll-on, which is used as needed on the affected area.

When I start using your products, will I feel the effects immediately?

Just as the effect of stress on the body manifests after certain period of time, regeneration processes also take some time. However, the result of using CBD is long-term and deep calming of the body and mind and suppression of the side effects of chronic stress.

CBD can thus be used in the long run (for example, if your work inevitably involves more stress) or in the short term – if, for example, you are exposed to a higher level of stress for a limited time (work deadlines, probation, difficult family situations).
