What is CBD?
It's hard to turn on the news these days without hearing reports of cannabis being legalized around the globe—and with good reason. These plants have been important throughout history as medicines, food, fuel, fiber and more. Cannabis is incredibly safe, grow wildly and abundantly in most climates, and have an extraordinary list of practical uses. It's almost as if Mother Nature created cannabis just for us. In fact, that's not a terribly far-fetched idea. The human body actually contains special receptors throughout the nervous system that are specifically activated by compounds found primarily in the marijuana and hemp plants. These receptors make up the Endocannabinoid System. The two most prevalent compounds found in cannabis plants are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC). Both are being heavily researched around the world on the success of application in both human and animal models. THC is the compound that contains psychoactive properties (the one that gets you "high") while CBD is the compound that shows promising health benefits. THC is found in high volumes within the marijuana plant, and CBD is found within the hemp plant. Here at Miracle Nutritional Products it is our mission to provide CBD extracted from the industrial hemp plant that contains less than 0.3% THC at an affordable price.
