Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that affect an individuals’ endocannabinoid system.
The Endocannabinoid system is a system of transmitters and receptors in the body. This system is responsible for regulating various different processes that occur inside the body, including but not limited to; appetite, mood, memory, and pain-sensation.
The Entourage effect refers to how cannabinoids work in tandem with terpenes and other constituents that make up cannabis. The terpenes help the cannabinoids to cross and absorb into the blood brain barrier, increasing the efficacy compared to each compound on its own.
CBD is one of 113+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD has not only been found to be extremely effective at reducing anxiety, pain and inflammation associated with it but has shown to be extremely effective at treating seizures from disorders such as epilepsy and Dravet’s Syndrome.
D9-THC (delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the only psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. This cannabinoid is not specifically produced by the plant itself as THCa, but is converted to D9-THC through a heating process that ‘activates’ the molecule, creating the psychoactive properties associated with cannabis. D9-THC is currently being studied for its properties that may help with fatigue, insomnia, and increase appetite.
By blending these cannabinoids we are able to optimise their potential to target both Receptors 1 & 2 throughout the body and the brain. We know that CBD acts as a guide for the other components to bind to their designated receptor. The THC acts on the CB1 receptors specifically and the CBN is a specific fit to the CB2 receptors. By having a ratio of all 3 we anticipate that the product efficacy will be even better.
Our ratio’s offer a high CBD vs a high CBN product. We believe that the higher CBD ratio will help with overall soreness and inflammation that guides the endocannabinoids already in our system to ease muscle tension while the high CBN ratio should help significantly with skin issues.
