CBD (Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid extracted from the hemp plant, a plant that has been a trusted herb to mankind for thousands of years. This cannabinoid has gained recognition in recent years for a proven ability to induce neurogenesis.*
CBD promotes an anti-flammatory response in the body, particularly the brain, acting as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant.* The most often reported effects from CBD are:
• A feeling of relaxation and calm*
• Joints feel better*
• Deeper sleep*
There is one area of the brain that is especially targetted by CBD, which is the hippocampus, an area that is significantly prone to the ravages of aging. It is the assciated with spatial and episodic memory.
In a 2013 study on mice published by Cambridge University Press, CBD induces the formation of new neurons (brain cells).* The formation of new brain cells is one of the body's critical processes that is observed to decline with age, and is directly associated with longer lifespans. (The same reason endorphins correlate to longer lifespans.)*
Bone strength is also observed to decline with age, and CBD has a proven ability to promote stronger bones by assisting in the formation of collagen.*
Eternal Life brand CBD carries strict quality standards. All hemp is grown without pesticides on organic farms in the USA. The extraction is done with supercritical CO2 so it is a very clean extract.
The bottle contains 100 mg of cannabidiol (CBD), from 20 grams of hemp, and contains only CBD extract, cold pressed hemp oil, cold pressed grape seed oil, and pure mint oil.
We also offer CBDx™, our enhanced CBD with additional natural (non-structured) terpenes extracted from hemp. Additional natural (non-structured) terpenes extracted from hemp are added giving it an ideal "headspace" and making it perfect for therapeutic use. It has a strong and pleasant cannabis aroma.
The natural (non-structured) terpenes that we enhance the regular CO2 extract with are not the manufactured ones you can find for sale. They are a special-made extraction and not found in other CBD supplements on the market. We only have them because of our connection with the right growers. They are the reason CBDx has such a powerful aroma and is more effective than competitor products.
We also have six options for THC-free CBD oil, including peppermints.
