Cannabis Sativa (Industrial Hemp) is made up of a large number of different compounds, including Cannabidiol (also known as CBD). CBD is perhaps one of the most well-known cannabinoids in the world, having been first isolated and identified back in 1963. In total, there are 104 cannabinoids that can be extracted from different strains of the cannabis plant, alongside several other important compounds called terpenes.
Terpenes are a large class of organic compounds that are produced by plants (not just hemp!). They are incredibly fragrant and are what gives Cannabis its aromatic diversity. There are over 30,000 terpenes currently recorded, therefore if you can find any plant that smells pleasant or a herb that tastes spicy, terpenes are likely responsible for these characteristics. Hempura CBD products are packed with natural terpenes. These other compounds found in the hemp extract are just as important as CBD. Remember, there is more to hemp than just CBD!
CBD oil and CBD capsule products, in particular, have become a popular wellbeing supplement in the UK and internationally over the last few years, but here at Hempura, we do receive occasional questions from individuals who want a little more reassurance about the potential so we wrote an article on the potential side effects of CBD for those that want to read more before buying.
