What is CBD?

Cannabidiol is a natural substance found in cannabis plants. There are marijuana plants and hemp plants. Both provide CBD. CBD is a cannabinoid, which is a type of chemical compound found within the cannabis plant. There are well over 100 of these compounds in cannabis plants, and more are being discovered all the time. More and more studies are finally being completed on this intriguing healing plant. All animals are born with and have an endocannabinoid system, including you and your pets. Cannabis based products balance our endocannabinoid system and stimulate our system in a very positive way. It helps our bodies to heal and to relieve pain. he two main kinds of receptors that respond to the effects of cannabinoids are the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found all over the body and are extremely abundant in the brain while CB2 receptors are located primarily in the immune system. CBD works best when it contains a variety of cannabinoids, THC and terpenes. All of these components occur naturally in our cannabis full spectrum products. Indica vs Sativa: Understanding the Differences Between the Two Cannabis Plants. Cannabis can be used to treat a wide variety of common conditions such as pain, anxiety, insomnia and much more. CBD products give our clients a sense of greater physical and mental relaxation, pain relief, mental acuity, anxiety/ depression relief, and better sleep. However, there are two main varieties of medicinal cannabis plants, and each offers a different set of benefits. Understanding the difference between the two is important to finding the right product for you. The two major types of cannabis plants are Indica and Sativa. Think of them as brother and sister plants. They look different and act quite differently. Indica strains provide a sense of deep body relaxation, help with sleep/ insomnia and pain relief. It is also a good stress reliever. It will put you to sleep so use during the day is not recommended. Sativa strains tend to provide a uplifting, mind clarifying and energizing experience. Sativa helps mellow out stress as well. Both offer relief from pain, depression/ anxiety and many other medical conditions. The best way to maximize the impact of CBD products Our consulting doctor believes that keeping a consistent dose of CBD/THC in your body is best to reduce inflammation, pain and other medical issues. Many clients use both an Indica oil for night use and Sativa oil ( our DAY/NIGHT Pack) during the day to optimize their pain relief and healing. Cannabis Indica Typically, cannabis Indica plants are short, more bushy plants with wide leaves. The major qualities of Indica plant strains include:

  • increased mental relaxation, aids in creating a restful sleep

  • balances our body systems to promote good health

  • for NIGHT TIME use
Cannabis Sativa Cannabis Sativa plants are opposite of the Indica strains and grow tall and thin with narrow leaves. Sativa plants are also generally a lighter shade of green than their counterpart, the Indica strain. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and require more light. The major qualities of Sativa plant strains include:
  • anti-anxiety
  • anti-depressant
  • treats chronic and acute pain
  • increases focus, mental clarity and creativity
  • increases energy but is still relaxing
  • creates a positive relaxed less stressed mood
  • helps with dementia to increase mind clarity

Entourage or Ensemble Effect Whole plant, full spectrum CBD products such as those sold by Purely CBD Mexico include CBD, THC, terpenes, flavinoids, and more than 400 trace compounds. The majority of our CBD products are marijuana based, because we believe in the entourage effect. We do provide a hemp based product with very low THC. Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage or ensemble effect” that greatly magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its individual parts.

Where Does CBD Come From?

Cannabidiol is extracted from cannabis. Once cannabis plants reach maturity, they are lifted from the ground, dried and sent to an extraction location where the CBD is removed by means of various processes of extraction. Marijuana based products ( which is what Purely CBD Mexico sells and promotes) comes from the flower of the marijuana plant, either in sativa or indica varieties. CBD extracts from marijuana are more potent and powerful for healing and pain relief because they are made from the buds, which are filled with lots of cannabinoids and have a small amount of THC. Our products have enough THC for healing and pain relief but not to get anyone high.

What are CBD/THC products good for? Why use them?

CBD is a wildly popular substance , taking the natural health product industry by storm after receiving wide exposure in multi media, including an endorsement by Sanjay Gupta, which was first aired on CNN.
