Cannabidiol: CBD has medical benefits and is not psychoactive
Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is one of the most well-known naturally occurring cannabinoids (component of cannabis plants), second only to THC. It is known to have no toxic or psychoactive ingredients. That means it doesn’t get you “high” and does not cause side effects like many prescription drugs do. As we like to say, “The Side Effects of CBD are Health and Happiness.”
First isolated in 1940 by two groups of independent researchers, it exists in both hemp and cannabis. There is research being done today on the differences in effects and benefits depending on the extraction process, the starting material (hemp or cannabis) and whether it’s a whole flower or isolated extraction.
CBD is sold widely throughout the United States and internationally, as are hemp products including food, soap, clothing, and dietary supplements. Humans have used hemp for its beneficial properties for centuries. It is one of the earliest plants cultivated by our ancestors. Hemp proponents point out that it was an impetus for civilization, as it was quite possibly the first crop our ancestors ever planted. As early as 8,000 B.C. we were using hemp cord. Throughout our history, we’ve used its fiber, seeds and oils for health benefits, protein, clothing, rope, fuel and food. In recent years, cannabis cultivators have been breeding high-CBD strains of cannabis such as AC/DC, Valentine X, Charlotte’s Web, Harlequin, Cannatonic and Sour Tsunami.
This marks a reversal of a trend that lasted for decades, in which cannabis cultivators were breeding out CBD in favor of THC-dominant strains for the psychoactive effect. When CBD is present in cannabis and the cannabis is smoked or vaporized, the psychoactive effect of the THC on the user is usually minimized.
World Health Organization Concludes CBD Safe and EffectiveIn December of 2017, the WHO released a report in which they conclude that CBD is safe and medically effective. They noted that “several countries have modified their national controls to accommodate CBD as a medicinal product.”
How Does CBD Help You?
Learn More About the Endocannabinoid System
CBD Helps A Whole Person, Not Just A Condition. CBD acts upon the endocannabinoid system to help restore the body to homeostasis. The endocannabinoid system is thought to be the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. It was discovered and named in the mid-1990s.

CBD Whole Flower Fluid™ Is Now Our Preferred CBD Supplement
August 2018 – With the proliferation of CBD isolate products, we just wrote a blog about the results between CBD-only products versus products made from whole flower CBD. It’s important information for every consumer primarily concerned with medicinal benefits to understand.Read our latest blog about why whole flower is preferred over isolate

CBD Whole Flower Fluid™ in a Vape Pen for Quick Relief!
Inhaling is one of the fastest delivery methods available and when we launched this site we could not find a healthy CBD vape cartridge to offer. You asked for something containing no propylene glycol or other potentially harmful additives and we were so pleased to find something even better!
The Whole Flower Fluid™ mentioned above is unique in that it can be placed in a vape cartridge and with is smokable with nothing else added besides a plant-based propellant, that’s no PG, no VG, and 100% CBD whole flower extract. People told us this was not possible, did not exist. We did our due diligence and tested the product and you can be assured this is a one-of a kind vape pen.
This CBD supplement pen is unique because it heats a lower temperature and preserves the integrity of the molecule.
Because this is not an oil-based product like all CO₂ extracted CBD, it doesn’t require as high a temperature to vape. So the cartridges are compatible with other 510 thread pens, but you’ll want to use the custom pen which heats to a lower temperature and maintains the integrity of the molecule.Learn More About Whole Flower Vaporizer
Extraction Process is Extremely ImportantWe launched this website after meeting a local scientist who had perfected the Supercritical CO₂ Extraction process. At that time, only supercritical extraction was accepted as safe and appropriate for medicinal use. Since that time, we’ve discovered an even newer whole plant extraction process that is top secret and patent-pending. We’re working internationally to begin clinical trials as to the efficacy of this process and product. You’ll find both types of products available on this site.

How Much CBD Should You Take?
Many people who become interesting in supplementing with CBD wonder how much should they take? How often? And in what form? There are many different ways to consume cannabidiol including capsules, concentrated oil extracts, infused sublingual sprays, edibles, flowers, milk and more. It can be difficult to determine the form and amount that works best for you.
As we started researching the whole flower extraction process, we learned why dosage amounts can be so confusing. A 2015 Israeli study helps explain why. With most CBD products, even the tinctures and titrations we offered on this site when it launched, are not necessarily more effective with the more you consume. There is a bell-shaped curve in terms of results. It’s why we created the customizable pump. However with the whole flower products, studies are showing a different pattern, more along the lines of clinical medical results- the more you consume, the more effect you will experience. Update – April 2017 – we removed the customizable pump from our site and now offer 750 mg and 1500 mg CBD supplement pumps.
