Cannab-FS by Designs For Health is a suite of products providing full-spectrum cannabinoids derived from hemp, infused in a base of organic cold-pressed hemp seed oil, and offered in a variety of doses. All Cannab-FS products contain terpenes, natural compounds from the hemp plant that work synergistically with phytocannabinoids, complementing their health-promoting properties. All Cannab-FS products contain less than 0.3% THC.
What are Phytocannabinoids?
Phytocannabinoids are health-promoting compounds derived from the cannabis plant. Various cannabis species supply over 100 cannabinoids, but health applications has focused primarily on two of these compounds: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
Phytocannabinoids directly interact with cannabinoid receptors in the body, much like a lock and key. The cannabinoid receptors are part of a unique communication system in the body known as the endocannabinoid system. This system is laced throughout the central nervous system and distributed among peripheral tissues including the immune and reproductive systems, gastrointestinal tract, brain cells, endocrine glands, arteries, lungs, and heart. Phytocannabinoids have been studied for their potential health-supportive effects on the neurological system.
CBD — A Health-Supporting Phytocannabinoid
The phytocannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), is harvested from the flowers, seeds, and/or stalk fibers of Cannabis sativa L., otherwise known as hemp when containing less than 0.3% THC. Studies have found that CBD supports numerous body processes.
• Proper Pain Response: CBD helps the central nervous system respond appropriately to stimuli that influence the body’s immune response.
• Healthy Neurotransmitter Levels: When CBD activates cannabinoid receptors, it encourages the body to balance its production and secretion of neurotransmitters to support a healthy mood, a positive outlook on life, sharp memory, and cognitive function.
• Supports Gastrointestinal Health: The digestive tract contains cannabinoids receptors, so phytocannabinoids may help to support healthy gastric motility (movement of food through the digestive system), as well as a healthy appetite.
• Immune Health: Cannabinoid receptors in the immune system may help regulate cellular activities to maintain a healthy immune response.
• Support for the Brain and Nervous System: CBD helps to benefit the brain and nervous system by supporting balanced neurotransmitters, proper brain stimulation, and healthy cellular growth and activity.
What are “Full-Spectrum” Phytocannabinoids?
Phytocannabinoid products are labeled as “full spectrum” when they contain all the natural terpenes and phytocannabinoids found throughout the entire plant, including the flowers, seeds, and stalk fibers. These biologically active compounds function synergistically to enhance the effects of the main phytocannabinoid — CBD. Some manufacturers only isolate CBD from hemp, but purified CBD does not work in the same capacity as it does in the presence of terpenes and other phytocannabinoids. Emerging research is starting to show that phytocannabinoids other than CBD possess health-promoting benefits that support the body’s pain response, balance the immune system, relax muscles, and help with weight management.
The “Entourage Effect”
Full-spectrum phytocannabinoid products are known to promote the “entourage effect,” which is a term used to describe the synergistic interactions between phytocannabinoids and terpenes. The “entourage effect” enhances the product’s health-promoting effects, meaning that theoretically smaller amounts can be used to elicit greater benefits. Thus, the entourage effect is vital for ensuring robust phytocannabinoid action.
Sourcing and Purification
In the wild, cannabis plants easily absorb and accumulate various toxins including chemicals such as pesticides, heavy metals, molds, and bacteria. Therefore, a controlled growing environment is vital for quality and purification. Cannab-FS products contain 100% non-GMO hemp flowers sourced from American farms, grown under the Farm Bill, and are compliant with the strict hemp regulations in states such as Indiana.
