What is CBD?
See our glossary of terms to know for more information.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid, an active biological compound present naturally within the human body and more recently discovered to also be present within the hemp plant. While there are nearly 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, CBD is one of the most abundant. CBD one of the most amazing superfoods in and of itself is non-psychoactive, meaning you won’t ever feel “high” from it as you would with its cannabis counterpart.
Scientists first discovered CBD (and THC) in the 1930s, and to this day are still learning exactly how plant-based cannabinoids work in the human body. After years of prohibition, there is a lot of promising clinical research being conducted on cannabinoids, including CBD, but here is what we know so far about how they work.
Centuries ago, when people needed medical treatment for various ailments, they utilized oils and chemicals derived from plants. That was the way of things until technology gave us the ability to mass-produce synthetic medication. While that seemed like the ideal way to handle health issues, it became common for these synthetics to cause a number of side effects.
At Agrozen Life Sciences, we think returning to nature is a wise move. That’s why we’re pleased to be a trusted manufacturer and supplier of CBD oil products within the CBD industry. While the CBD compound is often associated with marijuana, it cannot create a high. That’s caused by the THC in marijuana, a totally separate natural chemical.
Hemp And The Body
CB receptors, their functions, and you.
When the endocannabinoid system was discovered, so were endocannabinoids — that is, cannabinoids that your body produces, naturally, for itself. The endocannabinoid system functions via two primary cannabinoid receptor types found on your body’s cells: CB1 and CB2.
Benefits of CBD
There are a number of potential benefits you can reap from adding CBD oil products into your daily routine, including:
Anxiety and Depression
An expanding body of research is indicating that CBD oil can be an effective mood stabilizer and treatment for a wide variety of mental health conditions, including anxiety and depression.
Whether you suffer from chronic pain, post-workout soreness, or have suffered from an injury, CBD oil can function as a natural analgesic, cutting down inflammation and relieving pain symptoms. Researchers theorize that the oil chemically interacts with the receptors in both your immune system and brain to help reduce pain and inflammation.
When a seizure occurs, it’s because of dramatic amounts of electricity in the brain. Research has shown that CBD has a direct impact on the reduction of chronic seizures from epilepsy, and one brand has even been approved by the FDA for prescribing for specific epileptic conditions.
CBD is currently being studied for its potential to have antitumor effects in the fight against cancer. It also has become implemented as a method of coping with the harsh side effects of chemotherapy from cancer treatment.
CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties allow it to provide natural skin nourishment, making it capable of being used as an acne treatment, moisturizer, irritation reliever, and much more.
A receptor in the brain, CB1, could be the culprit behind fading memory consistent with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative disorders. CBD oil could very well be the solution. When CBD oil interacts with these CB1 receptors, it can help manage symptoms from these diseases.
While CBD oil products can help, they have still not yet been proven to be a cure for any medical ailments. We strongly recommend discussing taking CBD with your doctor prior to placing an order.

A biological regulating system found throughout the body’s central and peripheral nervous system.
Refers to the idea that biologically active compounds, such as CBD, can have enhanced biological activity and effects when administered in combination with otherwise inactive compounds, such as terpenes, as opposed to when either is administered alone.

Full Spectrum = CBD + CBN + CBG + CBC + Terpenes + More
To extract our CBD-rich oils from the hemp plant, we use supercritical CO2 extraction. The extraction process involves bringing CO2 to a low temperature under high pressure, which gives it properties of a liquid and a gas. This complex process extracts whole plant compounds without the use of harsh chemical solvents. The CO2 extraction process ensures superior quality and keeps the integrity of the plant intact.
