What does CBD Stand for?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol. There’s some sciency stuff in there, like “di” meaning two of something and “ol” which is the short form of “alcohol.” Essentially this means CBD is a complicated but super-cool organic chemical.

What is CBD?

Plant-derived CBD is a phytocannabinoid that interacts with our endocannabinoid system. Pretty much every living thing with a spine has an endocannabinoid system in their body, including CB1, CB2 and other non-CB receptors. Those affect pain sensation, memory, mood and appetite. CBD interacts with these receptors in different ways, increasing the anandamide cannabinoid levels in our brain, thus regulating serotonin and dopamine levels.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

Although they belong to the same class of compounds and interact with the endocannabinoid system, they are structurally different and affect you in very different ways. THC is the psychoactive chemical that directly bonds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors, with a special connection with CB2. CBD never binds with CB1 receptors, meaning you can never get high.

Is CBD organic and completely natural?

PureForm CBD uses the tree bark of an invasive evergreen species combined with citrus peels to create the purest form of the chemical. GrцnCBD and PureForm CBD use these commonalities to help make the production of our chocolates as good for the planet as possible. Because our CBD is made from an invasive pine tree and readily occurs in nature, we are able to provide a sustainable source of CBD that is less intrusive than other traditional methods.

How is CBD extracted?

CBD is most commonly extracted using a CO2 method. However, PureForm CBD uses a proprietary method where the CBD molecule is isolated and activated with elements found naturally in Citrus peels. This process yields the purest form of CBD available.
