What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is an all-natural, non psychoactive compound extracted directly from the industrial Cannabis plant. It has generated interest worldwide after reputed organisations like W.H.O. and The UN published reports of its wide ranging health benefits.
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, already present in the human body, and acts as a messenger to regulate and balance basic bodily functions; thus helping normalise sleep, anxiety, mood and pain.
What is THC?
THC, is another cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant. THC produces the intoxicating, psychoactive “high” often associated with cannabis depending on potency and the concentration of the dosage. Inside every cannabis plant are hundreds of potent compounds with unique therapeutic potential.
THC is one of them that can be used to treat a range of medical conditions. When consumed in the right amount, it can feel good, causing a sensation of relaxation and relief.
How Cannabis plants are grown and processed has a significant impact on the purity and quality of CBD. Cannabis grown under the right conditions produce CBD which is free from GMOs, harmful chemicals present in fertilisers, pesticides, and insecticides- that all make their way down to the final product.
The most important part of the process, however, is the extraction methodology. Our multi-step proprietary process ensures that our products are free from any impurities.
Our products undergo winterization, supercritical CO2 extraction processes, and multiple distillations to ensure that the final product is free from all waxes, plant material, and contaminants which results in a pure extract with stable viscosity and longer shelf life.
Difference between CBD & THC
CBD and THC are two of the most prominent cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. They don’t have the same chemical arrangement, and the body receives them as completely different compounds.
CBD will not get you high. It's non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive. On the other hand, THC is the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant which may cause the slight sensation of a high depending on the product's potency and your dosage.
Both compounds communicate with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system is perhaps the most important physiological system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. CBD and THC bind to neurotransmitters in your brain and body and play a role in regulating many functions and processes, including sleep, mood, appetite, memory, reproduction, and fertility.
Which is better CBD Oil or THC Oil?
There’s no definitive answer to the debate between THC and CBD.
In some cases, THC is more therapeutic than CBD. Patients with conditions like Cancer, AIDS, Nerve pain, Multiple sclerosis, and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis have explained how THC has helped them with severe pain, anxiety, muscle stiffness, and various medical issues. They also explained how CBD helped them in counterattacking many symptoms.
Using the current research available, it is believed that a combination of THC and CBD together shows the most promising effects for any medical condition. When CBD and THC are consumed together, CBD binds to the receptors and helps mitigate some of the side effects felt by the THC.
They work together and form the "entourage effect". None is better than the other, they both have different uses and benefits and together they create a holistic product.

How Much CBD Should I Consume?
As prescribed by the physician.
Though, we recommend starting with a small dose of 0.5mL twice a day. Experiment with the dosage to find the best fit. You can keep increasing in 0.25mL dose until you start seeing the desired results. People often consume between 0.5mL to 2mL twice a day.
The only difference in the 3 variants is the concentration of CBD + THC present in them.

It is observed that consuming CBD+THC thrice a day helps in reducing severe conditions and nerve pain. People with Migraine, Arthritis, MS, Cancer and many other serious conditions swear by cannabis extract for severe pain management. The extract offers relief for many people who have chronic and acute pain, all without causing drug intoxication and dependence.
Relief in Chemotherapy
Numerous studies have demonstrated that cannabinoids like CBD and THC can help improve nausea and vomiting that results from chemotherapy. Those undergoing chemotherapy have found relief from cannabis despite these unfortunate symptoms being so resistant to other treatments.
Are there any side effects of consuming CBD & THC?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said in its research that, “CBD was tolerated in all patients, with no signs of toxicity or serious side effects.”
If side effects were detected, it was usually a result of CBD interacting with other medication the person took at the same time.
THC, on the other hand, does have a few side effects such as increased heart rate, coordination problems, dry mouth, red eyes & slower reaction time.
These side effects are associated with the compound’s psychoactive properties.
