Cannabis has been providing healing benefits to humanity — in addition to food, fuel, and fiber — for more than 12,000 years. From the Scythians to the Rastafari, the alchemists to the healers, cannabis has found a place in healing traditions across the world. Cannabis was added to the U.S. Pharmacopeia in 1850, and every major pharmacy in America and all europe offered medicinal cannabis tinctures up until it became prohibited in the 1930s. Today, cannabis continues to provide recreation, restoration, and relief for approximately 200 million people worldwide. And this is just the beginning.
Think of cannabis like a spice. Cannabis is an incredible plant that has been used throughout cultures for its unique medicinal and spiritual properties. It is the cannabinoids and terpenes that compose the flowers that bring you all the flavors and beneficial effects. Terpenes are the molecules that give the fragrance, the flavor and the feeling. Terpenes are an important contributor to the Entourage effect. Our body is stimulated by cannabinoids, the receptors that compose our body helps maintain many essential physiological processes including appetite, stress, pain or sleep. Of all the cannabinoids found in cannabis, THC and CBD are the ones you’ll hear about the most often. To date scientists have identified more that one hundred unique cannabinoids.
Although the therapeutic use of industrial hemp (and CBD) is not legally accepted, there is investigative work and laboratory studies on its uses
Why is CBD so important?
Because it works with the endocannabinoid system, our immune and nervous system, that part of our body that can regulate and balance many physiological processes. Studies show that CBD is well assimilated by the body between the other cannabinoid THC which is a psychoactive molecule that can bring you some non wanted effect. When it comes to determining the effects of a particular plant, we are looking on the origine species. Compose with two main species, the Cannabis SATIVA with a tall and skinny leaf and the INDICA with a large and fluffy leaf. Hemp is insanely complex, we are still discovering more about it each day. The SATIVA are well know at the “Daytime”, this species, more social, will bring you creative, uplifting and energetic effects. The INDICA are better suited for “Nightime” enjoyment because it generally give you more body high, making you feel relaxed and sleepy.
