Here at Stanford Botanicals, we understand buying CBD for the first time or have never been in any CBD store can feel overwhelming and a little scary at times, but it does not have to be. Below are some definitions of terms you will hear quite often when referring to CBD and our Stanford Botanicals products, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
Cannabidiol is one of the 100+ Identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and can account up to 40% of the plants extract.
Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
The Biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors (CBRs) Cannabinoid receptor proteins are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral nervous system
Cannabinoids that naturally produced by our body Anandamide-Central or Peripheral Nervous System and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol- Regulation of Appetite, Immune System Functions, Pain Management
Cannabinoids that are found in plants
Found mainly in our Central Nervous System (Spinal Cord and Brain) Direct Role in memory and cognition, emotion, motor control, appetite stimulation, and perception of pain
Immune system- Responsible for mediating Cytokine release- Gastrointestinal System
The Process used to remove the Cannabinoids from the Hemp Plant
One of the easiest solvents to use and obtain, it’s also one of the most effective methods when it comes to cannabis extraction. That’s because it’s cost-effective, scalable, relatively safe and highly effective.
Ethanol is mixed with the cannabis plant to remove cannabinoids and terpenes. Ethanol is a polar solvent, meaning it is able to dissolve cannabinoids and terpenes, as well as water-soluble molecules such as chlorophyll.
Ethanol can be performed at varying temperatures in the extraction process to have different effects. While warm ethanol can be used to quickly wash the plant material for a full-spectrum concentration, cold ethanol can be used to produce concentrated distillate
Extraction process creates phase changes in carbon dioxide utilizing temperature and pressure. CO2 is known as a “tunable solvent” making it extremely versatile for creating a multitude of end products by controlling temperature and pressure.
CO2’s pickier nature can miss out on some of the potentially nutritious phytochemicals during the extraction process. The use of carbon dioxide results in a very limited extraction of the plant, Since the extracts of carbon dioxide are non-polar; carbon dioxide extracts are not water-soluble. This plays a vital role in bioavailability. Many of the beneficial flavonoids and other phytochemicals in the cannabis plant are water-soluble. In order to effectively extract these micronutrients, a polar solvent is needed.
.3% or Less of THC Phytocannabinoid-Rich Other beneficial cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC) Flavonoids Terpenes Essential Amino Acids
0% THC or ND THC (Non Detected THC) Phytocannabinoid-Rich Other beneficial cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC) Flavonoids Terpenes Essential Amino Acids
ONLY CBD a product that contains up to 99.9% CBD only but the lack of terpenes and other cannabinoids
The ability for CBD to aid in anxiety, energy, and focus in lower doses, while higher doses of same product aids in extreme pain relief and sleep
Results produced from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis • Reason behind why Broad or Full Spectrum products work better than an Isolate product
The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects
