CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It’s a natural compound found in cannabis plants like hemp but also marijuana. In the last years it is gaining prominence worldwide in natural therapies.
The hemp plant contains hundreds of compounds, some of which fall into the cannabinoid group. CBD is gaining popularity due to its quantity, as well as its studied therapeutic properties. The products of myCBD won’t get you high like marijuana does! That’s because our CBD products contain less then 0,2% of the psychotropic compound THC, which is responsible for that “high” feeling.
CBD is a cannabinoid with vast therapeutic uses. It’s non-psychotropic and non-addictive. CBD does not have the danger of generating addiction.
Since it is a natural product, we can perfectly complement it with other elements to create Cannabidiol products for people’s administration. One of the most best-known products, is CBD oil. People can consume it sub-lingual or apply it topically in creams or ointments.
How CBD Works
Inside our bodies, we have an incredible system called the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short. This system plays a big role in keeping our bodies balanced and running smoothly.
CBD interacts with the ECS by binding to its receptors. Think of these receptors as little locks, and CBD is the key that fits perfectly into them. When CBD binds to these receptors, it can help our bodies maintain a sense of balance, or what we call homeostasis.
CBD in Spain and the world
CBD is widespread practically all over the world, and in Spain and Europe, there are hemp crops that provide Cannabidiol and a very low amount of THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the psychotropic effects of cannabis.
For myCBD, safe hemp is crucial. We need controlled plantations with organic certification for quality assurance.
We grow the crops from which we extract CBD in Spain and subject them to strict quality controls.
These crops have a THC percentage of less than 0.2%, which is the substance generating the psychotropic effects of cannabis. Since it is not present in cultivated hemp, it enables us to take advantage of the benefits of this plant with high concentrations of Cannabidiol.
Each batch of products goes through a chromatography system to determine the percentage of each one. If you are interested in knowing our quality process, in the section on the quality of products with cannabidiol you can find information about it.
Certainly, over time, Cannabidiol will be acknowledged for its exceptional properties and diverse applications for humans and animals.
At myCBD, we commit to offering CBD products that are 100% organic and free from toxins.
