What Is Cannabidiol or CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol is a molecule commonly found in hemp extract, which has been studied extensively over the last two decades. CBD vape pens, cartridges, oils and other cannabidiol based products have recently been gaining widespread popularity for their potential wellness benefits.
The human body has a built-in system of cannabinoid molecules and receptors called the Endocannabinoid System or ECS.
The primary function of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis – a stable internal environment, which endocannabinoids promote through various biological mechanisms, including facilitating communication between different cell types.
Plant derived cannabinoids – or “phytocannabinoids” – interact with the ECS, to regulate potential excesses or deficiencies in the body’s naturally occurring cannabinoids.
CBD works with the human endocannabinoid system to influence many of the health-related benefits patients are seeking – but without any psychoactive effects or other unwanted side effects.

The Science Behind Terpenes
Aromatic and holistic, these scientifically-proven compounds are known to have multiple therapeutic benefits.
”The entourage effect is the term used to describe enhancement of efficacy, with related improvement in overall therapeutic effectiveness, derived from combining phytocannabinoids and other plant-derived molecules.”U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of MedicineThe "Entourage Effect"
“The synergistic contributions of cannabidiol to Cannabis pharmacology—and specifically analgesia—have been scientifically demonstrated.”U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of MedicineCBD For Pain
“Ongoing studies show that [the terpene] β-caryophyllene is effective at reducing neuropathic pain in a CB2 receptor-dependent manner.”U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of MedicineTerpenes - b-Caryophyllene
“Putting these pharmacologic, clinical, and societal issues together, the direction for the future resides in the development of orally administered, highly bioavailable, non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid products that also take advantage of the entourage effect, to provide the millions of people living with debilitating pain a comparatively safe and effective form of relief.”U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of MedicineThe "Entourage Effect"
