What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in hemp and is widely known for three main benefits:
  • Natural Pain Relief 
  • Anxiety, Stress Relief 
  • Anti-Inflammation  

CBD has been shown to support the proper functioning of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) inside your body and the body’s perception of pain.* The endocannabinoid system is one of science’s newest discoveries and opens a window into the physiological processes of the body including: pain sensation, mood, memory, inflammatory responses and even cognitive function.

Since the ECS is responsible for your body’s response to pain, most cases of people suffering from chronic pain have an insufficient supply of cannabinoid to control the endocannabinoid system. This explains why CBS is so effective for such patients and why so many people find relief in CBD use.

The ECS is made up of receptors throughout the body: CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CBD binds to these receptors in a way that causes your body to produce more of them, so the communication between cells can be strengthened and improved.
CB1 Receptors are concentrated in the brain and central nervous system but also sparsely populates other parts of the human body.
CB2 Receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs, especially cells associated with the immune system.
Taking CBD is a way to give the ECS a little boost, in a completely natural way.

5 CBD Facts

CBD from hemp is legal and will not get you “high”.

Under the Farm Bill of 2018, CBD products that come from the industrial hemp plant and contain less than 0.3% THC are legal in the US. Tranqul Earth is responsibly sourced, third-party lab tested, and batch traceable with our QR codes.

CBD effects several neurotransmitter receptors.

CBD is an allosteric modulator at several receptor sites in our bodies and enhance the ability for these receptors to receive the pentapeptides needed to naturally reduce pain.

Studies have shown that CBD reduced seizures in patients with Epilepsy by 54%. 

In a study published by the American Academy of Neurology, an FDA approved CBD drug dramatically lowered by the number of seizures in patients with some form of Epilepsy.

The human body produces cannabinoids and CBD helps.

Cannabinoids can be derived from plants in addition occuring naturally in the body. CBD supports the activation of receptors in the body responsible for relieving pain, inflammation, and anxiety. CBD also inhibits enzymes that break down naturally occuring and regulating chemicals in your body.

CBD has been known to alleviate chronic pain.

CBD impacts nociceptive pathways to significantly reduce inflammation, a leading cause of disease and chronic pain, and inhibit pain.

Isolate vs. Full Spectrum

Isolate is a type of oil in which the end product is a highly-concentrated CBD. This product does not contain the other various compounds found in the hemp plant. It’s generally created using an alcohol extraction process. The end product is a crystallized form that can be used in vaping, tinctures, lotions and water soluble products and is ideal for pain management.

Full Spectrum is a type of oil in which the end product contains many of the additional compounds found in the hemp plant. This product is ideal for anxiety, depression, etc. Full Spectrum oil is extracted using a CO2 process and affects various parts of the human body. Unlike isolates, it is not water soluble.
