Today, scientists continue to explore the health effects of CBD in humans. This research includes studies on a wide range of neurological conditions which is continuously expanding. This section educates and explores the potential health benefits of active cannabinoid compounds inherent to hemp plants.*
About Hemp-Derived CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications, due to clinical reports showing the lack of side effects, particularly its low psychoactivity (as is typically associated with Δ9-THC), and non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions.
All cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD), attach themselves to certain receptors in the body to produce their effects. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It has two receptors for cannabinoids, called CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found all around the body, but many of them are in the brain.
The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, among others. THC attaches to these receptors. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They have an effect on inflammation and pain. It used to be thought that CBD acts on these CB2 receptors, but it appears now that CBD does not act on either receptor directly. Instead, it seems to influence the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.

This process allows the nano-size CBD and nano-size nutrients to quickly penetrate into your cells, pat the blood barrier and give the body almost 100% bioavailability. This is called a nano-amplified effect (gives up to 10x the effect of other brands).
When ingesting CBD and nutrients, a majority of the CBD or the nutrients are usually lost to the body’s digestive system. Often, this loss is upwards of 90%. The nano-amplified effect allows you to experience 100% of the CBD and nutrients because they go directly into your cells.
Nano-sized nutrient particle delivery is the most effective way to introduce nutrients in your body.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance.
It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.
D-ribose is used to improve athletic performance and the ability to exercise by boosting muscle energy. It has also been used to improve symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, and coronary artery disease.
Ribose has been used to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain and stiffness after exercise in people with an inherited disorder called myoadenylate deaminase deficiency (MADD) or adenosine monophosphate deaminase (AMPD) deficiency.
Ribose has also been used to improve exercise ability in people with another inherited disorder called McArdle’s disease.
Methylcobalamin (methyl B-12) from a plant source is the active form of vitamin B12. It supports metabolism and is required by the body to maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells.
Methyl B-12 supports nerve tissues and brain cells, promotes better sleep and recycles (via methylation) homocysteine, an oxidizing metabolite, back into the amino acid methionine.
