CBD the Sow & Arrow Way
Our suppliers use the whole-hemp plant seed to create our products. Nothing added, nothing taken away. They never use a carrier oil, instead they use a traditional cold-pressing technique, so each product consists of 100% whole-hemp plant seed oil with an abundance of whole plant nutrients.
This is known as full spectrum oil. Full-spectrum means it has the presence of all of the other cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant (without the THC and therefore it has no psychoactive effects).
It means our oils contain not only CBD, but over 150 compounds found naturally in the hemp plant, including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, CBC, – polyphenols, Omegas 6 and 9, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids.
Due to the presence of the whole plant, the CBD oil has a very dark green appearance due to the presence of chlorophyll (the green pigment in plants). The slightly bitter, grassy, peppery flavour of this oil comes from the presence of terpenes. Terpenes are bioactive molecules that can also have beneficial effects on the body.
What is CBD?
CBD has become a hot topic in the health world and for good reason! It has some impressive therapeutic potential. This has seen an explosion in opportunistic sales and marketing hype…so what do we know when it comes to CBD oil?
CBD is not just another nutritional supplement!
CBD has the potential to interact with our own body’s natural system of receptors, a system called the endocannabinoid system, resulting in a variety of health benefits.
CBD is a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids are bioactive molecules and can either be made by the body, found in cannabis plants or can be made synthetically.
There are a variety of cannabinoids. In fact, scientists believe there may be upto 200 cannabinoids. Many of which are still unidentified. Two well-researched cannabinoids are CBD and THC.
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, Cannabis Sativa. CBD oil in the UK market is has strict regulations around the levels of THC. This is the cannabinoid that produces the psychoactive effects, the one we may typically associate with marijuana and being ‘high.’ Our body makes it’s own cannabinoids. These are called endogenous cannabinoids- they are anandamide and 2-AG.
The levels of these own-made cannabinoids can very from person to person. They are made on demand in the nervous system and the role the naturally produced cannabinoids play in our health and wellbeing, give us a great insight into the role plant-based cannabinoids such as CBD can have on human health and wellbeing.
