What is CBD?

Our full spectrum hemp extract is made from high-CBD, low-THC agricultural hemp, unlike medical and recreational marijuana products, which are made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, our hemp extracts are non-psychoactive.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), CBD is defined as follows:

“Cannabidiol (CBD) is the major non-psychotropic cannabinoid compound derived from the plant Cannabis sativa, commonly known as marijuana. CBD was first isolated in 1940 and its structure and stereochemistry determined in 1963 [1,2]. Interest in exploiting CBD therapeutically was initially focused on its interactions with the primary psychotropic ingredient of Cannabis, Δ9-THC and its sedative and antiepileptic effects, and later its antipsychotic and anxiolytic actions and utility in treating movement disorders [3]. As chronicled elsewhere [3], the last several years have seen a renewed interest in CBD due to the discovery of its antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective effects, actions that occur for the most part independently of the canonical cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors [1,4]. CBD may prove to have therapeutic utility in a number of conditions involving both inflammation and oxidative stress, including Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and ischemia-reperfusion injury.”

There are nearly 8,000 results when searching the NIH site with more than 150 citations and reports on the positive impacts of CBD and/or Full Spectrum Extracts on the human body for treatment of conditions that range from Anxiety Related Disorders, Parkinson’s Disease, Spasticity disorders, Obesity and most notably relief of Inflammation and Pain disorders.

Pure Kind Botanicals offers products that are processed and extracted using the Pure & Kind extraction method, which is 100% natural and gentle. We do not utilize fossil fuels in the process, so no propane, butane or CO2 is used in our extraction process. As a result, we extract and isolate CBD to at least a 99% purity as well as the full spectrum of cannabinoids using a process that is gentle on the trichomes and cultivars, which leads to a more positive and natural experience when using our products.
