Natural Genetic Strains 

Our hemp plants produce a high amount of CBD – naturally. Each plant on average produces 18% Cannabidiol (CBD), 1-2% Cannabigerol, 1-2% Cannabinol (CBN), 1-2% Cannabichromene (CBC), and less than .3% THCA. This means that all of the synergistic compounds found in our plants have evolved naturally to support a high amount of phytocannabinoids

CBD, or Cannabidiol itself has a long list of medicinal properties. It’s benefits include relief from chronic pain, muscle pain, convulsions,  migraines, arthritis, spasms, epilepsy, schizophrenia, and inflammation. CBD has also been show to have some anti cancer properties, and new uses are being found all the time as more research is conducted.

CBDa, or Cannabidolic is the precursor to CBD and breaks down from its acid form to CBD when it becomes heated and aged.  CBDA’s benefits include: anti-inflammatory properties, anti-nausea properties, antioxidants, pain relief, antibacterial/antimicrobial properties, anti-proliferative properties.

CBN, or Cannabinol is pain relieving, may reduces heart rate and help with sleep. It is also known to reduce anxiety and relieve pressure behind the eyes. 

CBC,  or Cannabichromene, is thought to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect and helps with anxiety, pain relief, and stress.

CBG, or Cannabigerol, has been shown to demonstrate both pain relieving and inflammation reducing effects, also sleep inducing. It is an active compound in cannabis that is mostly known for its anti-bacterial effects. It is likely to be the “template” or “stem cell” for both THC and CBD.
