Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds that the cannabis plant naturally produces. There are 100+ known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, each producing its own unique effect on the body. THC and CBD are the most prevalent and well-understood cannabinoids. CBD comes from both hemp and marijuana (or cannabis) plant. There are higher levels of CBD in the hemp plant, and minimal levels of THC.
What is THC?
The primary psychoactive cannabinoid that produces the “high” feeling, not present in any of the Tikun Hemp products. Cannabis sativa plant contains less than 0.3% THC in the dry weight.
Hemp vs. Marijuana
Although hemp and marijuana are both cannabis, there is a difference between them, primarily evident in the way each variety is used.
What is Hemp?
Hemp is a term used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain less than 0.3% THC. This is the legal definition as of December, 2018 after the US farm bill was passed to remove hemp as a schedule I substance.
What is Marijuana
A term used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain more than 0.3% THC and is associated with euphoria or psychotropic effects.
The Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system identified in the early 1990s by researchers. This system is a naturally-occurring system found in the bodies of all mammals. It stretches from head-to-toe and forms a network of receptors between our connective tissues, glands, organs, immune cells, and brain. The main job of the ECS is to maintain health and homeostasis at a cellular level and as an organism as a whole.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant, also known as phytocannabinoids. Tikun Hemp produces broad-spectrum, plant-based products that are made from phytocannabinoids (CBD).
Tikun Olam Medical Research
Tikun Hemp strives to provide you with high quality ingredients in all of our products, based on research and data from Tikun Olam. Studies show that CBD is anti-inflammatory, anti-psychotic, suppresses seizure activity, reduces anxiety, combats tumor growth, is a neuroprotectant, and can be a natural pain-reliever. There are 100+ other cannabinoids whose therapeutic benefits are just beginning to be explored.
The Entourage Effect
Cannabis contains more than 500 chemical compounds. When consumed together, they work more efficiently, rather than when isolated as a single extract. This is called the Entourage Effect: combining cannabis compounds creates a different physical or psychological impact than a single compound on its own
What is "Whole Plant Medicine"?
Whole plant medicine refers to using full cannabis flowers and leaves in medical cannabis products, not just isolated parts. Tikun Hemp CBD tinctures and softgels offer the full spectrum of therapeutic compounds the cannabis plant has to offer – without THC
