What Are the Health Benefits of CBD?

The health benefits of full-spectrum CBD provides relief for numerous health issues, and treatment is available in many forms. Whether you ingest, smoke, or topically apply your CBD treatment of choice, it can help with common ailments such as pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, nausea, inflammation, and more. 

That being said, studies show that pure CBD extracts are the most effective when administered in a more natural form and combined with other chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, like the minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Creating these mixtures results in what’s called a full-spectrum compound, and is the basis for the theory of the entourage effect.

Simply stated, products made with combinations of cannabis compounds result in more enhanced medicinal effects than pure CBD—which is what the entourage effect is all about—and research shows there is a lot to support this theory! 

When more compounds are present, there is more for your body’s endocannabinoid system to bind to, thus impacting the receptors in your brain and making your full-spectrum treatment all the more effective. This doesn’t mean you’re getting more “high,” since CBD has no psychoactive properties, but instead means that the health benefits of your full-spectrum CBD product you’re using will be at the ultimate levels of effectiveness. The entourage effect states that the more parts of the cannabis plant you utilize in your products, the more you’re taking advantage of everything the plant has to offer naturally, which makes it an ideal medicine. 

If you need further proof of why CBD is so important in regard to treatment, according to Cannabis Tech, a 2016 study which compared cannabis users who used pure THC products to those who used cannabis products with THC and CBD found that the pure THC users suffered cognitive and memory impairment, while those who used THC combined with CBD did not experience these side effects. When analyzing these results, researchers credit the ability of CBD in assisting the binding activity of THC with cannabinoid receptors in the brain.*

At Verda Hemp, we believe in the power of CBD as a natural healing element and are familiar with how powerful it can be when combined with the right compounds. We are always looking for new, innovative, and effective combinations to create the best CBG and CBD products available. Although research is still well underway to fully prove the entourage effect, we know and see firsthand the difference the right combination can make.

After seeing the multiple benefits that a wide variety of people have enjoyed from this plant, founders Vince Williamson and Derek Shields were moved to learn more about how they could get involved. With professional experience in contracting, Vince used his resources to obtain the proper permits in the community to find local farmers, farm land, and begin the process. Derek has been growing hemp and working with CBD since 2012. While working with different strains, he found that each one, with its ratio of cannabinoids and terpenes, has it’s own unique healing properties. This is why Verda cultivates a variety of strains to benefit a wide range of symptoms. After suffering from a shoulder injury resulting in a replacement surgery, Vince made the decision to do without prescription pain medication and found that CBD was a successful replacement. He experienced a pain-free healing process during a time that was understood to be a relatively difficult recovery. Post-recovery, Vince’s continued testimony includes pain relief in several pain areas due to previous sports injuries. Both Vince and Derek are inspired to share the healing benefits, profitability, and culture of CBD/Hemp oil through Verda.

Our Mission & Vision

Ultimately, we want to help! Our mission began by educating farmers to grow a profitable and organic CBD crop. We want to empower farmers to grow this crop while bringing prosperity and income back to the agricultural communities in America and directly to the individual farmer. As we are facilitating farmers on how to make money growing the nation’s newest, most lucrative cash crop- we are focused on communication, understanding, and providing products to CBD users. Our vision is to allow farmers to produce CBD while educating the community and the country on the benefits of CBD in the production, the sale, and the usage.

Defining Hemp

Hemp is a natural compound that is compatible with the endocannabinoid system in the human brain. Hemp can provide medicinal benefits without the reverse side effects we experience through prescription drugs. Acting as a natural healer, hemp may be used to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety, act as a sleep and relaxation aid, and provide relief as an anti-inflammatory.
