We start with Cannanda's physician-formulated, multi-award-winning CB2™ terpene blend and infuse it into pure Canadian-grown, certified-organic, cold-pressed hemp seed oil. This best-selling product is used for all the same reasons people use the CB2™ Wellness, but with the added benefits of the exact essential fatty acids that our body uses as building blocks for our own production of endocannabinoids.
While most use this as an alternative to cannabidiol (CBD), many also use this to enhance their CBD experience. CBD is the popular cannabis compound that has significant health benefits but lacks the intoxicating effects of its sister compound, THC. This means you get a number of incredible health benefits without feeling "high," and it delivers these benefits by positively influencing the endocannabinoid system (ECS, the body's master regulator of homeostasis).
By harnessing the power of terpenes in this precisely formulated blend, we can optimize the function of the ECS through activating one of its main receptors, a receptor called cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2).
However, if you're already a CBD user, the benefits could be even greater! There is a perfect synergy between Cannanda's CB2™ products and your CBD products (read more below).
Activating the CB2 Receptor
CB2 is one of the two main receptors of the ECS. There are numerous benefits to activating this receptor without activating the CB1 receptor (the receptor THC activates, and is responsible for the "high" associated with cannabis). Look in the Supported by Science link for a small list of studies illustrating the benefits of CB2 activation.
As mentioned, CB2™ can greatly enhance the benefits you already receive from CBD products. Here's how:
- Activating CB2 receptors is not how CBD is thought to work. This is because CBD only has a very weak ability to bind to CB2 receptors.
- Newer studies suggest CBD may influence cannabinoid receptor shape and/or inhibit the proteins that remove our endocannabinoids. This means our own endocannabinoids can then activate CB2 receptors, and could be how we get the benefits from CBD products.
- However, if we can supply the body with external sources of compounds that directly activate CB2 receptors (such as those found in our CB2™ Hemp Seed Oil, we can amplify those benefits. It's actually the perfect combination!
- Even better, CB2™ Hemp Seed Oil version provides the exact essential fatty acids that our bodies use to create more of our own endocannabinoids!
