Honoring Health Through Ancient Plant Protection…
The Multi-purpose Molecule!

Understanding CBD & how it functions
within our bodies...

CBD is a safe, non-addictive & non-intoxicating substance that is therapeutically potent. CBD is short for Cannabidiol. CBD is a phytocannabinoid which is a primary molecule compound that is naturally derived from both the Hemp Plant & the Marijuana Plant.

These plants are often confused as the same but they are more like cousins. The same way CBD & THC are often confused as having the same effects on the body, they don’t. THC is also a phytocannabinoid molecule from the Hemp Plant & the Marijuana Plant but the affects are different. 

Humans and most animals have an Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS supports homeostasis & balance of the neurological and peripheral systems. Endo-Cannabinoids are found in the Immune System, Central Nervous System, the Brain, Organs, Connective Tissue, & the Glands.

The ECS is a Receptor System, composed of CB1 & CB2, which is responsible for supporting and maintaining a healthy balance. When Cannabis is consumed, the system can be triggered to activate. 

CB1 Receptor – Directly connects to the Brain, Central Nervous System, & the Spinal Cord.

CB2 Receptor – Directly connects to the Peripheral System, Organs, Immune System, & the Gastro-Intestinal System.

When our body isn’t flowing efficiently, it leaves room for ailments to flare up as well as being more vulnerable to disease. CBD & THC have an effect on the Endo-Cannabinoid System. This system plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis (internal balance) within the body. The wide range of functions effected include sleep, pain, appetite, mood, immune system, memory, fertility, etc.

Some of the beneficial components of CBD & THC have specific effects. When both are present, along with "Aerial Parts", the two molecules harmonize to create "The Entourage Effect".

Not all hemp is created equal, which means not all CBD is the same quality.
Extraction Methods Matter!

Kuhl Essence CBD uses Supercritical C02 Extraction Process

Kuhl Essence uses the “Aerial Parts” which are those that are completely exposed to air, including leaves, the flowers, and stems. 

The “Aerial Parts” can contain a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavanoids, phyto-nutrients, polyphenols, phyto-cannabinoids, antioxidants,  & other beneficial nutrients. 

All of these combined contribute to creating “The Entourage Effect”. This theory claims that all the different compounds in Cannabis (either from the Hemp Plant or the Marijuana Plant) work collaboratively to improve well-being & create uniquely beneficial effects within the body.
