Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of many compounds found in the cannabis plant. You’ve probably heard of the terms cannabis, marijuana and hemp mentioned alongside CBD. Let us break this down for you.
Hemp and marijuana are both derived from the cannabis sativa family. While they do share certain similarities, there are very distinct and crucial differences due to each plant’s biological structure. Hemp plants are typically grown for agricultural products such as textiles, seeds, and oils. Hemp contains much higher concentrations of CBD and minimal traces of tetrahydrocannabidiol, or THC, the psychoactive counterpart found in marijuana plants.
IGNITE is committed to delivering the world’s best CBD products. All our products use hemp-derived CBD isolate, the key ingredient for some of the industry’s most recognized products. CBD isolate is pure powder with greater than 98% potency and does not contain other cannabinoids or ingredients. IGNITE CBD isolate is extracted in a highly-controlled environment and processed to guarantee industry-leading purity and consistency. Any trace amounts of THC are removed during this process.
With millions of daily users worldwide, CBD has many reported and claimed benefits. You won’t find these claims on any CBD packaging as businesses cannot make medical claims regarding CBD according to UK law. However, if you read and educate yourself in what others have to say about CBD, you may find benefits that fit your need. We hope that fit is within IGNITE’s full range of CBD products.
CBD will not get you high. It’s non-psychoactive and is safe for human consumption and legal in the UK. The World Health Organisation also states “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.”
CBD is similar to chemicals in the human body which are referred to as endocannabinoids. The human body’s endocannabinoid system influences our major organs as well as the immune, digestive and nervous system to enable balance.
The key term to explain why CBD should be taken in different forms is Bioavailability. This refers to the effective use of the CBD compound by the body, how to get the best results in the quickest time, and how to get CBD into your system. CBD can be taken into the body in multiple ways including through inhalation, orally, or through topical application.
