ALL ABOUT CBD
At Plant The Seed we believe that hemp is a misunderstood plant and we want to educate people to the many benefits the Hemp plant can offer. We are aware that there is a lot of information out there about CBD and it can be a little intimidating. That is why we are here to guide you and help find the right product for your needs.
WHAT IS CBD OIL?
CBD, is short for Cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive, naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant.
CBD Oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and diluting with a carrier oil such as MCT Oil, Coconut Oil, Hemp Oil or in our case 100% Organic Sunflower Seed Oil.
Over the recent years CBD Oil has been associated with many positive, therapeutic properties without any of the intoxicating effects that are associated with THC (another, naturally occurring compound) found in the cannabis plant.
HOW CBD WORKS
The human body has an endocannabinoid system, which is made up of three components: receptors, enzymes and endocannabinoids, these impact several major processes such as appetite, sleep, mood, inflammation and more.
One of the main functions of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain homeostasis and keep the internal functions of the body balanced. However, like with nutrients our bodies can have a deficiency, and may need additional support, particularly during times of stress and anxiety.
Researchers believe that CBD works with each of the components in the endocannabinoid system in different ways, allowing our body to utilise and restore what it naturally produces.

TYPES OF CBD
Many CBD products can be described as "isolate", "broad spectrum" and "full spectrum". Each of these types of CBD are created differently and have different characteristics and benefits. These different types of CBD are categorized based on their cannabinoid profiles.
CBD isolate is a crystalline solid or powder that only contains CBD with all the other compounds removed.
Broad Spectrum contains all the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant without THC.
Full Spectrum is extracted to preserve all the beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant like CBD & THC and also includes traces of THC*.
*All Plant The Seed oils are Full Spectrum oils and contain less that 0.2% THC.
WHY FULL SPECTRUM?
'Full Spectrum' means that the oil has been extracted in a particular way to retain all the beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant like: cannabinoids (such as CBDA, CBC & CBG), terpenes, flavonoids and also includes traces of THC (less than 0.2% in our oils).
All these natural compounds have the potential to optimise our wellbeing and are strongly associated with the 'entourage effect'.
The entourage effect is essentially where all the compounds found in the cannabis plant work together, synergistically to enhance the benefits of each individual compound such as CBD. To put it simply, it means each of the cannabinoids working together provide greater effects than if the individual cannabinoid was to work on its own.
CBD Oil is quickly becoming a popular natural remedy for many common ailments.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil has the potential to stimulate the endocannabinoid system, promoting the normal function of our internal systems, helping us restore our natural balance.
Typical results from using CBD Oil regularly include: better sleep cycles, feeling less stressed or anxious, improvement in mood, pain relief and reduced inflammation to name a few.
Although, research is still in it's early days there is evidence to suggest CBD Oil has the potential to support the body and mind
