Unlike THC, CBD does not cause any psychoactive effects, commonly referred to as “being high,” which is helping contribute to its legalization/decriminalization across the world. After almost a century of orchestrated fear and propaganda, we are now beginning to truly understand the CBD molecule and its potential. CBD does not typically have any immediate noticeable effects, though some would say otherwise when using strong concentrations known as “full spectrum extracts”.
Our CBD products and extracts are derived from hemp (not marijuana), and can also be referred to as CBD-rich hemp flower, oil, hemp-derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp flowers and extracts,” since they typically contain more cannabinoids and aromatic compounds than just CBD alone. However, CBD oil is different from hemp seed oil and organic hemp oil, as these are derived from hemp seeds (not the resin) and do not contain cannabidiol.
SECRET NATURE’S products are derived from hemp plants grown legally in Colorado and Oregon, and all products are thoroughly tested to assure safety, quality, and cannabinoid content.
How does CBD work?
Hemp derived CBD works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a complex colony of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the entire human body, these receptors are also found in almost all animal species. Primarily these receptors are found in the brain and central nervous system, where their concentration is most prevalent. While CBD is considered a phytocannabinoid, or plant-based cannabinoid, the human body naturally produces its own cannabinoids as well, known as endocannabinoids. Almost every organ of the human body, including the heart, lungs, skin and digestive tract, contain cannabinoid receptors. The endocannabinoid system has four primary functions that have been identified, including neuroprotection, stress relief, immune response, and regulating homeostasis, impacting faculties such as appetite, sleep, emotions, and pain.
CBD, unlike THC, does not interact directly with the two classic cannabinoid receptors most commonly studied and referred to (the CB1 and CB2 receptors). This is why CBD does not cause any psychoactive effect or “high”. Instead, CBD slows down the enzymes that break down your body’s own naturally occurring endocannabinoids, leading to an increased concentration flowing throughout your system.
