What is CBD?

The hemp plant is an amazing plant ally with over 100 diverse chemical compounds (called phyto-cannabinoids) that all play a unique role in the power of the plant.

One of these cannabinoids is called cannabidiol (CBD). Unlike the well known THC - CBD is non-psychoactive, so it doesn’t alter us in a psychoactive sense, but it provides incredible medicinal benefits, helping treat a wide array of symptoms.

Using CBD can aid our bodies in re-establishing balance in our systems, helping to restore our innate health. It is an incredibly useful tool when partnered with awareness in diet and lifestyle.

When you use an apothecary item infused with hemp derived CBD and phyto-cannabinoids, the body absorbs the cannabinoids and stimulates the activation of the CB1 and CB2 receptors, a network of receptors found within our endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Our ECS is an extensive part of our nervous system, and is known to help regulate mood, immune function, stress response, sleep, appetite and homeostatic regulation.


CBD is known for:

  • anti-inflammatory properties

  • analgesic properties

  • antioxidant properties

  • anti-convulsant properties

Research has shown its ability to treat conditions such as:

  • epilepsy

  • neurological issues

  • anxiety

  • PTSD

  • digestive issues

  • skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema

  • arthritis

  • menstrual pain

  • taken on the skin, known to be a skin normalizer, neutralizing skin that runs more dry (vata) or more oily (pitta)

What is Full Spectrum Hemp Oil?

We offer remedies made with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil which offers a diverse profile of phyto-cannabinoids (CBD, CBDa, CBN, CBG), essential nutrients, healthy fats and proteins.

The cannabinoids work together, and enhance each other's value, through a concept known as the "Entourage Effect". This creates a potent, synergistic medicine.

The Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil we use in our remedies is from organically grown New England hemp.

What is CBD isolate?

CBD isolate is cannabidiol in it's most purified possible form, at +99% pure CBD. It is CBD that has been extracted out of the hemp plant using super critical CO2 into a fine, white powder.

The CBD isolate we use at Avraveda is derived from non-GMO, organic hemp grown in Colorado.
