What is CBD?
Cannabidiol is one of over a hundred potent phytochemical components found in Cannabis Indica (commonly called hemp) and Cannabis Sativa (you probably know it as marijuana, pot, maryjane, weed, reefer…). It accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extracts. CBD DOES NOT MAKE YOU 'HIGH' -- IT IS NOT PSYCHOACTIVE.
The component in Cannabis Sativa that leads ordinary people to consume an entire pepperoni pizza and laugh maniacally at the towel rack -- THAT component is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Here at Cloud Forest Botanicals, we do NOT grow, produce or advocate the use of THC products. Why? Cause it will land you in the pokey and we don’t want to go there!
Which brings us back to CBD (which our attorney and an authority from the Ministry of Health assure us is legal in Panama and will NOT land us in the pokey. Whew! FYI, it is also legal in all 50 US states).
CBD is extracted from the hemp (Cannabis Indica) plant. It has been shown in research to:
✓ help control epileptic seizures,
✓ reduce the side effects of chemotherapy,
✓ reduce chronic or acute pain from injury or arthritis,
✓ relieve insomnia,
✓ alleviate the symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders (IBS, Crohn’s, etc.).
✓ shrink or eliminate tumors
Here in the Cloud Forest we have been conducting our own research and studies and, after seven years, we have launched Hemp & Herb, a line of products in which we have blended pure, organically grown whole plant CBD with potent Cloud Forest Botanical extracts.
These cutting edge products contain the highest quality organic ingredients, hand blended in small, highly controlled batches. The combination of CBD with our cloud forest plant extracts potentiates BOTH so that your body can readily absorb and USE all the active elements to promote wellness and healing.
The initial results have been astonishing. Clients with chronic pain are walking without a cane and are off opiods. Clients with insomnia are regularly getting 6-8 hours of deep sleep and have ditched their Ambien. Clients who have suffered from chronic IBS and diarrhea for decades have…NO symptoms after 3 weeks. Excruciating sciatica? Pain all but eliminated within days.
CBD is not addictive, it doesn’t create dependency. It simply works with your body’s own endocannabinoid system (which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory) to provide relief and promote wellness.
As always, wishing you health and happiness from the Cloud Forest.
