CBD, WHAT IS IT?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a molecule found in all varieties of the hemp plant.  It has reported calming, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammation and pain-relieving properties.  A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compoundsthat acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain Ligands for these receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids (produced naturally in the body by animals), the phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis and some other plants), and synthetic cannabinoids (manufactured artificially).  The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major constituent of the plant. There are at least 113 different cannabinoids isolated from cannabis, exhibiting varied effects.


When isolated from the psychoactive elements of the hemp plant (primarily Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)), CBD can be consumed in several different manners ranging from inhalation to ingestion in food or drink.  CBD is most often offered as a component of a Full Spectrum Oil (can include most cannabinoids, terpenes, and THC), Whole Plant Extract (can include most cannabinoids, terpenes and trace amounts of THC) or as an Isolate (usually contains NO other cannabinoids, terpenes or THC). 

While there are a great many reported benefits to offering CBD in conjunction with other cannabinoids and terpenes, at Jimmy’s Java we chose to only offer tasteless PURE CBD Isolate in our Cold Brew Espresso.
