What is CBD and where does it come from?

CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It is part of a family of molecules called “cannabinoids.” Some cannabinoids are naturally produced by the human body. These are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids are received by cells via endocannabinoid receptors — gateways on cells for which cannabinoids, including CBD, act as “keys.” 

The two major cannabinoids found in cannabis are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is the main compound responsible for the “high” produced by marijuana. Marijuana’s cousin, hemp, on the other hand, contains negligible amounts of THC. Most strains of agricultural hemp are rich in CBD.

Why do people use CBD?

People consume CBD for a variety of reasons. CBD has been shown to be beneficial in a number of ways.

There has been a long-lasting stigma in regard to cannabidiol (CBD) oil that is still very much a part of modern society. There seems to be a lot of confusion clouding the truth of CBD use – which is interesting because the demand for the product is through the roof. It is estimated that by the year 2021, the CBD market will be valued at around $3 billion dollars. Clearly, this compound is something worth researching.

 

How to choose a CBD product manufacturer.

The vast array of CBD products on the market can make it difficult to decide which one to purchase. But finding a high-quality CBD isn’t difficult if you know what to look for.

Purity should be the main factor when determining which product to use. There are many CBD products out there which come from countries that do not enforce strict organic farming practices. Many of these companies use chemical fertilizers and dangerous pesticides. Their products can contain toxic residues and should be avoided at all costs.

Strength is another factor to consider. What is the concentration of CBD in the products you are considering? Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as reading the label. Studies on CBD products currently on the market have shown that many of these products don’t contain the level of CBD being claimed on the products.

So how does one know which products contain impurities or are making false claims? It can take a lot of research to find answers.  

Diamond CBD uses 100% natural organic hemp to produce our products. We use an extraction system which purifies CBD leaving zero chemical residues. All our products are tested by independent laboratories to confirm that they are safe and that they contain the amount of CBD we claim they contain.

Deciding which product to use.

CBD can be consumed in a variety of ways. The most popular CBD products are edibles, tinctures, topicals, and vape oils.

Edible products include CBD oilsgummies, etc. Edibles are quick, convenient and often enjoyable. 

(CBD oil can also be applied directly to the skin to localize the application of CBD to a particular part of the skin or muscles. All Diamond CBD oils can be used topically.)

Vape liquids require a “vape pen” which evaporates or atomizes the CBD allowing it to be inhaled. The CBD enters the bloodstream via the lungs the same way oxygen does. Diamond CBD offers a variety of CBD vape liquids.
