What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a
largely legal hemp oil made from high-CBD and low-THC hemp plants. Due to the
low traces of THC, CBD oil products are non-psychoactive, allowing users to
gain the health benefits of cannabis without the associated high.
CBD is one of many
extractable phytocannabinoids that can be derived from the hemp plant. Other
phytocannabinoids include CBC, CBG, AND CBN oil which all come with their own
unique set of medical and health benefits.
How is hemp
different than marijuana?
CBD extracted from the hemp plant, which is the same plant that is used in the production of marijuana – cannabis sativa. The main difference between hemp and marijuana is the purpose for which they are grown. The hemp that is used in CBD is intentionally grown to have high levels of CBD and low levels of THC whereas marijuana is grown to have high levels of THC – the chemical that gives users a high feeling.
Hemp is grown all over
the world, and its health benefits have been documented
for centuries. The plant is grown easily
in most climates meaning that the oil can be produced in mass quantities with
little worry of ever running out of the product, unlike some of the ingredients
that are used in the production of prescription drugs. Alternative treatments
are being increasingly considered by people with health problems as the cost of
prescription drugs continues to rise and their benefits are disproven. A
natural choice could be the right choice for you.
What are the health
benefits of CBD?
CBD has been used
successfully to treat eating disorders, chronic pain, inflammation, multiple
sclerosis, neurological disorders, epilepsy, migraines, glaucoma, osteoporosis,
heart disease, stroke, hypertension, many types of cancer, insomnia, post-traumatic
stress disorder, clinical depression, and chronic and acute anxiety. For those
that are not diagnosed with a disease or illness, the CBD can still be used as
a mild relaxant due to its calming and soothing quality.
How do your CBD products
differ than others?
Our CBD products are
carefully extracted from hemp grown in the United States by farmers that care
about where and how their plants are cultivated and treated from harvest to
sale. Using sustainable farming technique and the whole hemp plant, the farmers
are able to guarantee the least wasteful and most environmentally friendly
process for cultivating hemp. Not only that, the grow techniques including
prevention of pests are all natural. On their farms, organic practices like
using insects to pollinate and mushrooms to fertilize keep the plants fresh and
free of pesticides. They also use full-tilling to keep soil at optimal levels
and prevent erosion of the land.
The type of hemp plants used to produce Kono Naturals products were
created specifically to have low THC, and high cannabidiol. Hemp, which is
sometimes associated with the industrial production of goods, is a different
variety of the same plant that produces the marijuana which is cultivated to
have high levels of THC.
Each batch of Kono
Naturals cannabidiol is independently tested in a laboratory to ensure the
purest quality oil, determine potency levels of various compounds, and to
guarantee the absence of any additional chemicals or solvents.
