CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is the second most abundant constituent in Hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. CBD is different to THC as it has no psychoactive effects, meaning it does not get you high. CBD is one of 144 known chemical substances known as cannabinoids. The Cannabis plant exudes cannabinoids and terpenes on to its leaves and flowers in response to sunlight and pests. It is understood that humans have cultivated and consumed hemp food products for thousands of years, carrying their cannabis seeds with them over great distances.
The human Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS) was discovered in 1992 and subsequent research has revealed a network of cell receptors designed to interact with cannabinoid molecules. Endo-Cannabinoids are internal cannabinoid molecules that our bodies are supposed to produce, to trigger ECS receptors. It is thought that certain environmental factors may inhibit our production of our internal cannabinoid molecules. While the mechanisms are not well understood, CBD is thought to interact with a range of cell receptors, causing subsequent physiological responses.
Holistic Herb’s uniquely micro-emulsified Premium CBD has vastly superior Total Bioavailability™, which means it is more efficient, entering the bloodstream faster and remaining there in higher quantities for longer after application.
Regular CBD products are not as efficiently absorbed and are not protected, and as a result they can lose as much as 95% of the active CBD through destruction by the digestive system on their way to the bloodstream. As a result, only a small fraction of active CBD from regular products makes it to the bloodstream.
With over 98% of the active CBD in the Holistic Herb product being fully absorbed into the bloodstream, you can be confident that our Total Bioavailability™ is helping to bring you a more efficient product and value for money.
