CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol which is one of the major cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Elixinol CBD is produced from industrial hemp and extracted using a CO2 extraction process.
Your body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that works as the master regulator of all of the body’s systems, and its sole purpose is to keep your body in balance. Research shows that the ECS plays a significant role within the immune system, stress and pain responses, regulating sleep and more. CBD interacts with your ECS like the endogenous cannabinoids that your own body makes.
There are many ways to extract CBD from the hemp plant. At Elixinol we use super critical CO2 extraction. By controlling the temperature, time and pressure, we are able to extract exactly what we want from the plant. Though this process is more expensive, it allows us to gather a premier extract without using any harsh solvents.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was discovered back in the early 1990’s and has been a focus of many studies since then. Research shows that the ECS plays a significant role within the immune system, stress and pain responses, regulating memories, sleep, metabolism and even reproduction. Interestingly enough, humans aren’t the only ones with an ECS system. Mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and even invertebrates such as mussels and sea urchins have an ECS, too.
The ECS system is comprised of three main parts: endocannabinoids (also called endogenous cannabinoids), receptors and enzymes. Endocannabinoids are molecules made by your body is what binds to the receptors. There are two endocannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are found mostly in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are found primarily in your immune system but can also be found in many peripheral organs. Once the endocannabinoids have carried out their function there is an enzyme that breaks the connection down. It’s like a telephone call. Endocannabinoids are the message, the receptors are the phone, and the enzymes hang up the phone once the call is done.
The ECS system is all about maintaining harmony and balance within the body. Since everyone’s chemical makeup is different, what will create balance for each individual varies as well. Research indicates that CBD can support a healthy immune system, promote natural sleep, as well as help to relieve occasional, everyday stress. Unlike THC it will not make you “high”. CBD is not addictive, nor does it look like people develop a “tolerance” to it. Some people have reported that they feel like it might not be as effective over time. This is often resolved by either taking a small break and “resetting” or even changing the time of day you take it.
Since your pup also has an ECS system you can absolutely give CBD to your dog, but we always recommend speaking with your veterinarian first.
Taking too much CBD will not have the same common “overdose” reactions that most people associate with schedule 1 drugs. Unless someone has a cannabis allergy, taking too much CBD will probably just make them a little sleepy. For some people who have sensitive stomachs, they might experience a few “tummy issues.”
A “Tincture” is substance is suspended or dissolved in another liquid. Usually alcohol but many volatile oils are also used. Generally alcohol is used to make CBD Tinctures in order to reduce viscosity. Viscosity reduction helps absorption of CBD into the body. It also allows a more concise dosage as CBD oil is very viscous/thick and hard to portion out into doses.
