Hemp/CBD Education

Jade Harvest CBD comes from hemp, not marijuana. CBD, a critical phytocannabinoid derived from hemp, is non-psychoactive and is known for helping the human body maintain overall wellness. In contrast, Marijuana has higher levels of THC, the phytocannabinoid known for getting people "high." By definition hemp contains less than 0.3% THC, making it non-psychoactive. In addition to CBD, Jade Harvest contains a unique combination of phytocannbinoids. Our extract includes naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and other valuable hemp compounds that work together to heighten positive effects, sometimes referred to as the "Entourage Effect."

"Entourage Effect" In-Dept 

In 2015 two Israeli scientists had a astonishing study, where they discovered a vast difference in how the whole-plant molecule affects the body vs the single-plant molecule. 

The researchers found that when they gave participants single-molecule cannabidiol, the benefits ceased, even after administering low and high doses. To the contrary, the whole-plant cannabidiol had an immediate and direct effect on pain and inflammation. On top of that, the whole plant cannabidiol was responsive to dosage variations, but much less was needed to produce the same results.

At this time more research needs to be done to find more about the endocanabinoid system. At this time, researchers believe the answer lies in the relationship between the cannabidiol secondary phyto-cannabinoids, and non phyto-cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
