What is cannabidiol or “CBD” and how can it help me?
The health benefits of CBD have been researched extensively. While no single compound can legitimately claim to cure everything, CBD can seem suspiciously “overhyped” because of the wide range of positive effects it can have. The truth is that CBD acts as a “cell signaler” that helps to restore the body’s own natural regulatory and healing abilities by optimizing the Endocannabinoid System.
Of the many reported health facts of CBD, these are some of the more commonly known:
- Acts as an anti-inflammatory agent
- Modulates pain signaling, decreasing the sensation of pain
- Boosts the immune system
- Is a powerful anti-oxidant, neutralizing the damaging effects of free radicals
- Slows cellular aging, minimizes muscle loss and bone loss
- Protects the skin from the damaging effects of sun exposure
- Is neuroprotective, decreasing wear and tear to the brain
- Is anti-proliferative, slowing down tumor growth
- Enhances sleep
- Reduces anxiety and depression
(Note: MediPrana does not make any health or medical claims regarding “healing” or “curative” effects of CBD or any of the products produced from the cannabis plant. Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any health conditions or disease.)
Where is your hemp grown?
Will I get high from taking CBD?
CBD is not psycho-active and, by itself, cannot cause a “high,” like THC can. Some products may be sourced from cannabis plants that contain THC that may not be fully removed from the end product, but MediPrana sources its CBD from industrial hemp, which, by law, is very low in psycho-active compounds; we carefully monitor our manufacturing processes to prevent concentrations of THC from rising. We also test each batch for THC, so we know that our CBD oil will not affect our customers or cause them to get “high.”
Will MediPrana CBD products cause me to test positive on a standard drug screening test?
Drug screening varies greatly in sensitivity and in the types of drugs tested. Some people have reported that they have tested positive for “marijuana use” after using CBD. CBD is a completely different chemical compound than THC and is not on drug panels, as it cannot currently be detected in saliva or urine tests and because employers and other parties are screening for substances that can impair an employee’s ability to work safely.
MediPrana’s full-spectrum CBD products are compliant with regulatory requirements to contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered “THC-free.” Most people will not test positive at levels that low, but we cannot make any guarantees as everyone’s metabolism is unique.
For our customers with concerns regarding drug-testing (i.e. soldiers, government employees, firefighters, police officers, etc.), we offer CBD products manufactured with “CBD Isolate,” which contains no THC or other cannabis terpenes and cannot cause a false positive on a drug screen for tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.
How do you extract the CBD from the plant?
