Hemp Extract Information
Hemp Extracts and Your Endocannabinoid System
Hemp extract contains cannabinoids, which are naturally occurring chemical compounds. These compounds include CBD (cannabidol), CBG (cannabigerol), THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), as well as many others.
Your body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ECS is important for many bodily functions. Cannabinoids, like those found in hemp extract, can help support your ECS.
CBD and CBG
CBD and CBG are non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids found in hemp. We grow different strains of hemp that are bred (not genetically modified) to be heavy in CBD or CBG, and low in THC. Our CBD strains are extracted to produce our CBD products, and our CBG strains are extracted to produce our CBG products. Our full spectrum products highlight either CBD or CBG (or both, as in our Great Divide formula) along with other smaller levels of naturally occurring cannabinoids. Our isolate products remove all other
cannabinoids and highlight one single cannabinoid.
While CBD has become relatively well known, CBG is a lesser-known, but promising cannabinoid. CBG is the non-acidic form of CBGA (cannabigerol acid). CBGA is considered the mother of the other cannabinoids, from which the other cannabinoids are all derived. Because of this relationship, there is speculation that CBD and CBG can have a synergistic effect when used together.
Cannabinoids for You!
Research and personal experience are showing CBD and CBG to have a positive effect on overall wellness. Because of federal regulation, we are not allowed to make any claims of what hemp extract can do specifically for you. We encourage you to ask your healthcare provider, do some research, and see what benefits hemp can have for you in your own health journey.
