What is CBD?
CBD is cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. Unlike THC (the active cannabinoid in marijuana), CBD is not intoxicating which means it will not get you high. CBD interacts with a series of receptors in your body known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS relates to a number of important systems in your body and helps keep your internal rhythms in balance.
How does the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) work?
Our ECS system is made up of Endocannabinoids which are a type of neurotransmitter our bodies naturally create. It’s been discovered that there are two types of cannabinoid receptors in our bodies, CB1 and CB2. The cannabinoids CBD in the cannabis sativa plant bind perfectly to these receptors, generating more receptors and may be responsible for the therapeutic benefits of CBD.
Benefits of CBD.
You’ve probably heard and read about people finding out how CBD products, such as CBD oil, tinctures and topicals like CBD lotions and creams, benefits them in their health journey and you’re probably wondering what the benefits of CBD can do for you. Unfortunately, we can’t discuss the benefits of CBD and what people just like you are benefitting from but encourage you to keep researching and asking questions.
The US Food and Drug Administration currently prohibits all manufacturers of CBD products from making any claims about their ability to treat specific health conditions. Health claims are only permitted where approved by the FDA and based on accepted clinical trials. Because CBD is relatively new to the market, the lengthy clinical trial period is still in process.
As a pharmacist-founded company, along with high quality and purity we make compliance with regulations one of our top priorities. We’re confident the FDA’s oversight of the CBD market will only help to distinguish our high-quality products from alternatives. Until the FDA approves clinical trials we encourage our customers to look at the considerable information and many personal testimonials available online or try Puure Therapeutics and find out these incredible benefits for yourself.
