Short for Cannabidiol - it's the second most common cannabinoid (chemical found in cannabis). CBD activates the chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) in the brain, body, immune system and body.
No. CBD is non psychotropic - meaning that it does not affect your mental state. CBD is made from Hemp which is a high CBD and low THC plant unlike marijuana which is high THC and low CBD.
Hemp oil is made from the seeds of the hemp plant and does not contain CBD. CBD oil is made from the leaves and stem of the plant which is high in CBD.
CBD is non habit forming/non -addictive.
THC is what everybody associates with cannabis, often negatively - THC DOES get you high. THC locks onto our CB1 and CB2receptors (see below) - and partially activates them - particularly CB1receptors in the brain - such as pleasure, memory and balance centres. We made the decision to make all Mother CBD products THC free.
This is our very own (cannabis like) system that helps control our most important mental, physical and emotional systems. It is a very important system and controls our overall balance(homeostasis). According to research, many diseases and symptoms are linked to a dysfunctional endocannabinoid system. Knowledge of our ECS was basically non-existent up until the late 80s. The ECS has two better know receptors (potentially more being uncovered) called CB1 and CB2.
CB1 and CB2 receptors talk to our bodies' endocannabinoids (cannabis like chemicals).
Whether cannabinoids are made by our body or delivered via the cannabis plant - these cannabinoids dock at our CB1 and CB2receptors.
CB1 receptors are found predominantly in our brain and central nervous system (CNS)
CB2 receptors are found throughout the body including gut, brain, immune system, hormone system, bone marrow, organs - the list goes on.
You can naturally boost your endocannabinoid system through diet and exercise - please check out our food and fitness blog for sometop tips.

Research into drug interactions with CBD is in very early stages. We recommend you always speak to a medical professional before taking any CBD product, if you're taking any medication for existing illnesses.
Terpenes are the essential oils of all plants -they are found in trees, plants and even fruit. Terpenes are responsible for the smell of a lemon, of lavender - it's why pine trees have that specific pine smell (forest bathing is big in Japan).
Terpenes have been used in Chinese medicine for centuries - turmeric for example is rich in terpenes.
Terpenes also help to protect plants and attract pollinators. Terpenes are found in fairly low numbers within CBD - but even a low % (around 0.04%) are considered potentially significant regarding the beneficial role they play within CBD.
It is the assortment of terpenes within the cannabis plant which give each strain its signature flavour and smell.
Yes. Mother CBD is Broad spectrum meaning that THC has been removed to under 0.01%.
Mother CBD contains a beneficial array of terpenes including the big hitters Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Linalool, pinene, Humulene, Eucalyptol and Limonene. Plus many more. It is the terpenes that create our great tasting CBD so we don't want to divulge the total recipe!
We sell CBD food supplements and do not make any medical claims. We encourage you to research terpenes to see what experts have to say regarding their benefits.
Isolate products do not contain terpenes which is partly why they are often cheaper.
Sure! It is very common to consume CBD by ingesting edibles or adding oils into your own recipes.
