CBD and its multiple benefits
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found inside the plant Cannabis sativa L. In Natureight we use hemp, that belongs to the same family but contains less than 0.2% THC. That’s why one of the great virtues of our products is that it has no psychoactive effects; they do not cause any negative side effects such as dizziness, drunkenness or euphoria.
The therapeutic effects of this plant have been documented even before the Christian era, specifically in India. There are also texts describing its benefits, dating from Ancient Greece and written by Claudius Galen (131-201 DC) and Pedanius Dioscorides (40-90 AD).
Currently, the versatility of the cannabis genome and the low efficacy of synthetic drugs to fight high morbidity diseases, have made cannabis and its components more popular than ever before.
CBD oil made from hemp full spectrum extract
In 1964, Israeli professor Raphael Mechoulam succeeds to isolate CBD and THC, in order to be able to develop a drug composed of only one of these two molecules. However, in 1999, Mechoulam discovers that the cannabinoids do not work so effectively if they do not remain associated with other components of the plant, among which we find the amino acids, terpenes, sugars, fatty acids, enzymes, esters, flavonoids etc.
In fact, the other active ingredients within the plant improve the therapeutic effects of CBD; a process called the “Entourage Effect“.
That’s why our CBD oil is made from a full extract of the hemp plant and not from crystal / isolated CBD.
Capsules made with plant extracts and CBD
Herbal remedies are timeless. Plants contain active ingredients that exert a direct biological effect on the body. Each of these plants is made up of two to three hundred different components. According to herbalists, it is precisely the interaction between these different components that gives rise to the medicinal effect.
Natureight capsules have been designed for specific disorders, bringing together various high-quality plant extracts with 10mg of our CBD in one capsule.
