Put simply, AlterOrganics is the very best, pure, 100% natural CBD oil, gently extracted from Agricultural Hemp. But to get a better understanding of what that means, please read on…
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the primary compounds produced by the plant genus, Cannabis, which is believed to be one of the oldest domesticated agricultural crops — and is arguably the most amazingly versatile plant in the world.
Through selective breeding, it has been cultivated for thousands of years to produce many valuable commodities, including textiles, building materials, fuel, and food. In addition, breeders have purposely developed strains with high amounts of medicinal cannabinoids, especially CBD.
Note: THC is the only psychoactive/hallucinogenic cannabinoid; the term “marijuana” refers only to varieties of cannabis that contain substantial amounts of THC, while strains that are high in CBD — with only trace amounts (0.3% or below) of THC – are called Agricultural/Industrial Hemp.
Scientific studies have identified 85+ cannabinoids with different properties and herbal effects. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, renowned for its psychoactive and pain-killing qualities. But unknown to many, there are several other (non-hallucinogenic) cannabinoids which include CBC, CBD, CBG, CBN… Among these, CBD is the most studied and celebrated.
CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, one of dozens of NON-hallucinogenic cannabinoids, that can — with selective breeding — comprise up to 50% (or more) of the plant. And according to many researchers, it may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered! Why? Because while CBD has been shown to possibly have wonderful health benefits, it does not cause a psychotropic “high” or euphoria at all. Instead, studies appear to indicate that CBD may quell anxiety and boost mood by promoting a sense of calmness and ease — without distorting mental cognition or causing you to to feel “stoned” or out of the ordinary.
Until recently, the public was not allowed to purchase CBD products due to the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937. But, thanks to the Congress passing the 2014 U.S. Farm Bill (see Sec. 7606), CBD-rich Agricultural Hemp products are now legal in all 50 states.
In the last twenty years modern science has discovered a natural “receptor” phenomenon in the human body — the Endo-Cannabinoid System — which scientists say may play a crucial role regulating our physiology, mood and everyday experience. The discovery of these receptors in the brain and immune system that respond to stimuli from cannabis, and the subsequent identification of molecules in our own bodies that bind to these receptors (endocannabinoids) — may have significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health and disease.
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors in humans: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain and spinal cord and in certain peripheral tissues, while CB2 receptors are found primarily in the immune system. Some scientists think CBD may be — in addition to its binding with the CB1 receptors — the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid that binds the receptors in your immune system, thus possibly providing a variety of medicinal benefits (See illustration Next Page).
“Milligrams” of CBD – what does it mean?
For quantitative purposes, CBD is measured in milligrams. Research and anecdotal feedback seem to indicate that between 2.5-10 mg is adequate to activate CBD receptors for each dosage (for most people), while more serious issues may require 20-40 mg per dose. In all cases, it is IMPORTANT to consult with your physician and/or healthcare provider to determine what is the best dosage for you.
A simple internet search of “CBD Benefits” will reveal a vast amount of information concerning CBD, its possible role in maintaining overall health and in treating or combating numerous medical conditions.
