What is CBD?
CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in
Hemp and Marijuana plants with a rich history of
therapeutic effects going back thousands of years.
What benefits does CBD promote?
* Neurological Inflammation, * ReliefAnxiety and
Stress Relief, *Pain Relief, *Enhanced Sleep.
does CBD work?
Humans have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
designed to fight neurological inflammation and protect
our body. The purpose of the ECS is to maintain a
healthy biological balance within our body’s major
systems. However, our ECS does not always function at
optimal levels, especially as we age. This can lead to
difficulty regulating a healthy mood, poor sleep,
increased inflammation and pain and an overall reduction
in immune health. This is where CBD steps in, providing
our bodies the support we need by helping our ECS to
function more effectively.
is CBD from hemp plants different than CBD from
Hemp and Marijuana are cousin plants, but they
are not the same.
CBD from Marijuana plants contains
a compound called THC. THC causes the psychotropic
effect or "high feeling" when consumed. CBD containing
THC is not legal nationwide. CBD from Hemp contains less
than 0.3% THC and does not cause the psychotropic
effect. CBD from Hemp plants is legal nationwide.
When did CBD from
Hemp plants become legal?
In December 2018, the United States Congress
passed a farm bill that legalized the production and
sale of CBD from Hemp. CBD containing THC from Marijuana
has not been legalized by the federal government.
Is all CBD from
Hemp the same?
The short answer is no. Hemp oil from Hemp seeds
contains no CBD. Products marketed as Hemp Oil typically
do not contain CBD unless CBD is specified as an
How can you
determine whether CBD products are high quality and
Processing CBD from Hemp plants is an expensive
and complicated process. Here are a few key things you
should look for when you buy CBD:
Traced from Seed to Sale. Are the raw ingredients
in the CBD tracked and traced every step of the way from
the farm to the product you are buying? If not, you are
taking a risk that your CBD is not clean, pure,
effective and high quality.
US Grown. Unless CBD is tracked
and traced, it is difficult to trust it is 100% US
Grown. Some manufacturers who claim their CBD is US
Grown will mix in CBD from foreign countries such as
China to lower their costs.
CBD - Unless CBD is tracked and traced, it may be
tainted with toxic solvent residues, pesticides, corn
syrup, artificial flavors, colors and/or other
Is all CBD created equal?
Not all CBD is created equal. To
produce high quality CBD, not only is tracking and
tracing the raw ingredients from seed to sale critical,
but the process used to produce CBD is very important!
There are two primary methods for processing CBD from
Ethanol Extraction - This process
requires hemp plant material to be soaked in the
chemical ethanol, an alcohol, for a period of time.
Using this process, it is nearly impossible to remove
all of the ethanol from finished CBD products. This can
reduce the potency and purity of ethanol processed CBD.
Many manufacturers use the ethanol
process because it is less expensive. The compromise for
consumers is that consuming ethanol processed CBD
creates the risk of chemical impurities which decreases
the potency and purity of the CBD products.
CO2 Extraction - This more
expensive and higher quality process uses CO2 not
chemicals to extract and purify CBD from the hemp plant.
A primary advantage of the CO2 process is it allows more
control of the fine tuning process for extracting pure
CBD Isolate from the hemp plant. The result is that a
more pure and potent CBD product can be created.
The CO2 process uses a lot of
electricity and is therefore a more expensive process.
This is a big reason why so many processors use the
lower quality, lower cost ethanol process.
Is there such a thing as
a Pharmaceutical quality CBD?
The simple answer is yes, but the
reality is very few companies use high quality
Pharmaceutical grade equipment to process CBD because it
is more expensive to produce.
One key question that can be asked
to determine whether or not CBD is Pharmaceutical grade
is to ask if it is Filter Reactor Processed. Filter
Reactors are cutting edge technology and are very
expensive. Filter Reactors are currently one of the most
effective ways to achieve the most potent and pure CBD.
What is the difference
between CBD Isolate, Broad Spectrum CBD and Full
CBD Isolate - 99.9% or higher pure
CBD. Broad Spectrum - contains CBD, terpenes, additional
cannabinoids, but no THC.
Full Spectrum - contains CBD,
terpenes, additional cannabinoids plus THC.
What form of CBD is most
After researching hundreds of
studies and papers published on CBD, Dr. Prasad has
determined that CBD Isolate is more effective than Broad
or Full Spectrum CBD products.
Dr. Prasad has three primary
reasons why he believes CBD Isolate is the best.
1. Effectiveness - CBD Isolate is
scientifically proven to interact positively with the
Endocannabinoid System, as well as other neurological
receptors in our body that regulate pain, mood and
inflammation. No other hemp compounds, cannabinoids or
terpenes have this scientific zvalidation.
2. Safety - CBD Isolate has been
shown to be safe at very high dosage levels in FDA
regulated studies. The FDA approved the CBD epilepsy
drug Epidiolex which has a safe maximum recommended
daily dosage level of 2,000 mg or more per day depending
on a person’s body weight. Broad and Full Spectrum do
not have this safety history.
3. Purity - By mixing in other
cannabinoids, terpenes, oils, etc, the risk for
impurities and dilution to CBD is increased.
What is the "Entourage
The "Entourage Effect" is the
theory that there is a synergistic effect created by
combining CBD with terpenes and cannabinoids such as CBG,
CBN and others.
Dr. Prasad is not aware of a
single credible study validating the "Entourage Effect."
Until a study has been conducted validating this effect,
Dr. Prasad’s conclusion is the Entourage Effect is more
marketing than science.
