WHAT IS CBD OR CANNABIDIOL?
Cannabis contains over 110 Cannabidonoids - One of which is CBD, the second most prominent chemical found in the Cannabis family. Most CBD products are derived from Hemp (A type of Cannabis that tend to have a high concentration of CBD with less that 0.2% THC). This allows to experience the therapeutic properties of Cannabis without any intoxication effects. For this reason, CBD/Hemp is legally sold and consumed around the UK & many other countries.
HOW IS IT MADE?
All products available at cannabidolpharm.com are made from Professionally cultivated EU certified Hemp flowers. Once the Cannabis has reached maturity, the valuable parts of the plant are dried and processes. The Oils are then extracted from the plant material using a non-toxic, environmentally friendly solvent called Super-critical Co2. The Oil is then refined where unwanted compounds are removed such as Plant materials & Fats. The pure extract is then Laboratory tested to measure Cannabinoid profiles & to ensure they are free from contaminants or impurities.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It is understood that the effects of Cannabinoids stem from it's influence on our Endocannabinoid system - The largest Neurotransmitter network in the body responsible for keeping our physical and mental health in balance (Homeostasis). In some circumstances, Cannabinoids such as CBD are used to modulate or control the function of this system. To learn more on how CBD works visit our article on the Endocannabinoid system.

WHAT IS 'BROAD SPECTRUM'?
The phrase 'Broad spectrum' referrers to a product or extracts range of Cannabinoids (such as CBD & CBG) & Terpenes (Such as Pinene & Myrcene). Specific refining processes are used for these types of products to preserve these valuable compounds. Research suggests that using multiple Cannabinoids & Terpenes simultaneously increases the potency and efficiency of a product - This synergistic effect is often referred to the 'entourage effect'.
