About Cannabis, CBD & THC
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of hundreds of naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD boasts a wide range of health- boosting and wellbeing benefits. CBD products usually contain an extract from plants with only non-detectable amounts of THC, whilst some are made using synthetic CBD.
CBD is increasing in popularity as a nutrient-rich superfood and is taken as a nutritional supplement . CBD is thought to improve sleep quality, anxiety, stress, seizures, acne and pain relief.
More generally CBD is also a powerful antioxidant, similar to vitamin C, that protects us from the damage caused by free radicals and environmental pollutants. CBD is considered safe and free from negative side effects.
Synthetic CBD does not come from nature and is created in a laboratory. AltoVerde believes in using the mystic of nature and is proud to boast that it does not use any synthetic ingredients for its CBD products.
Cannabinoids are compounds found in Cannabis. Humans and animals have receptors for cannabinoids throughout our bodies, known as the endocannabinoid system.
As the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant, it can be easy to confuse CBD and THC. However, they are not the same thing.
THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid and can send you on a “high“, while CBD is reassuringly completely non-psychoactive. There are strict guidelines for a CBD-containing product to be legal in the UK.
In particular, products must not contain any detectable THC and therefore CBD products allow you to experience the benefits of the other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant without experiencing any psychoactive effects.
Unlike THC, the compound that does cause a high, CBD does not have any psychoactive properties.
For you, that means the safety and security to get all the benefits of CBD while being in complete control.
CBD, like CBG and many other cannabinoids, is legal in the UK.
However, in the UK THC is a banned substance— which is why we work with leading regulatory advisors and continually ensure our well-being products contain Non-detectable THC.
CBG is another popular and legal cannabinoid found in Cannabis that has its own merits.
AltoVerde will release certain CBG containing branded products in the near future.
The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, comprises of a network of receptors (CB1 And CB2) that are responsible for: regulating balance in our body’s immune response, communication between cells, metabolism, memory, sleep, appetite, digestion, hunger, mood, motor control, immune function, reproduction and fertility, pleasure and reward, pain, and temperature regulation.
Modern day living can deplete the ECS function, leading to endocannabinoid deficiency, and has been linked to numerous health conditions. Cannabinoids like CBD are thought to support our endocannabinoid health, helping us regain balance and wellbeing.
Extraction is the process of separating the plant material to obtain the chosen end product. Extraction techniques vary, but the 2 most popular processes use CO2 or Ethanol, however these processes actually take away a lot of desirable compounds and acids.
AltoVerde’s extraction process is far more efficient and produces a superior, cleaner end product.
Not exactly. As with the extraction processes, there are many different varieties of extracts too, for example, oil and isolate powder. These oils and isolates come in varying strengths and options too. T Free CBD Distillate (THC Free CBD Distillate) is considered to be the safest and purest form of oil extract. These extracts are usually used as the CBD ingredient within a product formulation.
Whilst CBD might be the next best thing since sliced bread, it is still a relatively new product and the market is not yet adequately regulated. This can result in many “snake oil” products in the market, meaning some products might not contain the advertised concentration of CBD and may include impurities that can be potentially harmful. We happily provide laboratory analyses documentation upon request to substantiate the quality of our CBD.
