CBD Oil by Transcending Organics
CBD oil (cannabidiol oil) has gained popularity in recent times as a natural remedy for many common ailments. At Transcending Organics, we pride ourselves on producing the highest quality, full-spectrum CBD oil from whole plant extract, containing phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
What is CBD oil, exactly?
Cannabidiol (or CBD as it is otherwise referred to) is a chemical compound that is extracted from either the hemp plant, or cannabis plant, Cannabis sativa. CBD oil is cannabidiol in oil form. CBD is the second most prevalent of over 100 natural compounds found in the cannabis plant.
How does CBD oil work?
It is widely accepted that CBD oil works by way of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of the body. Cannabidiol is thought to bind to the body’s endocannabinoid receptors when the oil is ingested. Once the CBD oil has bound to the receptors in the body, it may enhance the activity of a number of physiological processes.
What are endocannabinoid receptors? I’ve also heard the terms ‘cannabinoids’ and ‘phytocannabinoids’? How do they all relate to CBD oil?
Endocannabinoid receptors are found within the cells of the body; they are the sites at which the cannabidiol binds when you consume CBD oil. Together, these receptors collectively form the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a physiological system that exists within every person’s body, regardless of whether or not that person uses (or has ever used) any type of cannabis product. Whilst it is still the topic of much scientific research, the ECS is thought to play an important role in a number of important physiological and cognitive processes, including fertility, immune processes, appetite, sensation of pain, mood and memory, and more.
When we examine the health benefits that are associated with cannabis, or indeed CBD oil, the vast majority of these benefits are attributed to cannabinoids (the active chemical compounds produced by all cannabis plants). The cannabinoids produced by plants are referred to as phytocannabinoids. Alternatively, the cannabinoids produced by the human body naturally are known as endocannabinoids.
So, in summary, the body has an endocannabinoid system, comprised of endocannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoids are produced naturally by the body (endocannabinoids) or consumed in CBD oil (phytocannabinoids, from the cannabis plant) and these have the potential to interact with the ECS to mediate and enhance some of the body’s most vital physiological and cognitive processes.
What are the benefits associated with using CBD oil?
People choose to use CBD oil for a large variety of reasons. There is currently a growing body of scientific evidence regarding the health benefits of cannabinoids, with just some of these potential benefits including:
- CBD oil may help to reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters1
- CBD oil may help to reduce anxiety and depression due to the cannabidiol’s ability to act on the brain’s serotonin receptors (a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in mood regulation and social behaviour)2
- CBD oil may help improve general wellbeing by reducing inflammation within the body3
- CBD oil may improve sleep by acting upon the root causes of insomnia4.
How is CBD oil produced?
Transcending Organics’ CBD oil is produced using only organic, non-GMO and vegan ingredients. Our hemp is grown in the United States using only the most natural of methods: the earth and sun. When the plant is ready for harvest, CBD oil is carefully extracted from the whole plant. From there, it undergoes a process of winterization and short path distillation. Only then, is it in its purest form and ready for use as CBD oil.
What is the different between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)?
Marijuana and hemp are both plants in the cannabis family. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the cannabinoid compound that is found in the marijuana plant. It is this compound that is responsible for making you “high”. In contrast, the hemp plant contains negligible amounts of THC, which in turn makes it very unlikely to cause any sort of “high”.
All of our CBD products at Transcending Organics undergo stringent filtration procedures to ensure that there is no THC in the final product. This ensures that our CBD is lawful, has no psychoactive effect, and is not in any way addictive or conducive to any dependency effects.
Your Full-Spectrum CBD oil includes terpenes. What does this mean?
You might notice that our Full-Spectrum CBD oil range has a characteristic smell and taste (while on the other hand our CBD oil isolate has no taste or smell). This is largely due to Terpenes. Terpenes are the compounds found in plants, that are responsible for giving them their unique smell (for example, the characteristic citrusy smell of limonene in citrus fruits, or the telltale fresh pinene from pine trees).
When terpenes are included in CBD oil preparations, they are known to facilitate the ‘entourage effect’. Several studies have demonstrated this synergistic effect, whereby the use of different plant components (in this case, cannabidiol plus terpenes) in conjunction with one another causes an interaction that produces a stronger desired effect. Put simply, the terpenes work with the cannabinoids to help them pass through the bloodstream more efficiently, creating a greater overall effect on the ECS.
Terpenes alone have also been shown to produce many of their own positive health benefits, and are recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as safe for human consumption.
