What is CBD
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the 113 known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. With all its benefits, CBD has captured a great deal of scientific attention making it one of the most researched cannabinoids. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive qualities, so there is no “high” associated with it. CBD interacts directly with the human endocannabinoid system and has a profound influence on many areas and functions in our bodies.
CBD has extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties, which explains why it is quickly becoming many people’s first choice for pain relief.
In recent years, CBD has become widely favored for the relief of anxiety due to its calming effect on the central nervous system.
What are Terpenes
Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants. They provide scent and flavor to plants, as well as healing qualities in certain cases. Terpenes have been used for medicinal purposes in essential oils for thousands of years. Considering almost 40% of prescription medicines come from plant extracts or synthesized plant compounds, it is hard to ignore the extensive list of effects terpenes have on our bodies.
Mother Nature’s bounty has provided over 100 terpenes in the cannabis plant alone. Breakthrough Remedies includes terpenes in every one of our products.
