FULL SPECTRUM

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_accordion active_section=”” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”EXPLANATION FULL SPECTRUM” tab_id=”EXPLANATION”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]CBD is one of the natural components of the industrial hemp plant. These and the other vegetable cannabinoids THC, THCA, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, CBN, in combination with terpenes and minerals, provide the benefits of a full spectrum CBD product. Full spectrum keeps the full properties of the hemp plant intact. By retaining all plant-based components, the full spectrum CBD from Renviden benefits from the synergistic properties between the components, the so-called entourage effect.

The hemp plant naturally contains over 100 cannabinoids that each, similar to CBD, provide their own unique benefit.

We can’t develop a product closer to nature than our full spectrum CBD. Grown from EU certified seeds, harvested by hand and dried in the open fields. After drying we carefully select the flowers and the leaves from the plant, because they have the majority of the cannabinoids inside.

We don’t use any form of extraction for the production of Renviden CBD. No, the dried flower and leaf parts are micronized, filtered and micro-encapsulated into a 100% natural pea-protein. The result is a very clean, taste- and odourless, white CBD-rich protein powder with all the benefits for your endocannabinoid system.

Because the content is protected by proteins, it has an up to 52x higher effect than traditional, non-encapsulated CBD products! This means that you need less product for the same or a better result.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”TERPENES” tab_id=”TERPENES”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

For many people the word “terpene” is a strange and unfamiliar term, but it won’t be for much longer.

As science and technology carry us to better understandings of cannabis, we’re beginning to see that there’s a lot more to it than its cannabinoid content.

Terpenes, unlike cannabinoids, are responsible for the aroma of cannabis. They are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity. They’re what give Blueberry its signature berry smell, Sour Diesel its funky fuel flavor, and Lavender its sweet floral aroma.

These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands, the same ones that produce THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Terpenes are by no means unique to cannabis; they can be found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants as well.

Terpenes play an incredibly important role by providing the plant with natural protection from bacteria and fungus, insects and other environmental stresses.

Terpenes and terpenoids are largely the same, but there is a small difference between the two components. Terpenes are pure hydrocarbons. Terpenoids, however, are changeable under the influence of oxidation.

Some terpenes are:

Myrcene – the most common terpene,  musky, earthy, herbal aroma. Analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antimutagenic, insomnia, pain.

Pinene – pine, fir aroma. Anti-inflammatory,  expectorant, bronchodilator, local antiseptic.

Limonene – citrus aroma. Antifungal.

Caryophyllene – peppery, woody, spicy aroma. Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, chronic pain, arthritis.

Linalool – floral, lavendel aroma. Sleep aid, lung inflammation, boost immune system, restore cognitive and emotional function.

Terpinolene – sage, rosemary aroma. Used to induce drowsiness or sleep, reduce psychological excitement or anxiety.

Camphene – odors of woodlands and fir needles. Cardiovascular disease, intestinal problems.

Terpinol – lilacs, flower blossoms aroma. Calming, relaxing effect, antibiotic, antioxidant.

Phellandrene – peppermint, citrus scent. Fungal infections.

Humulene – anti-tumor, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, suppresses appetite.

THC and CBD are the best known, but there are estimated to be more than a hundred different cannabinoids.

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is the most special, naturally occurring cannabinoid.

Some of the most common cannabinoids and their current therapeutic uses are:[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabidiol is the most known and most common non-psychoactive cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. There are very large concentrations of CBD in the cannabis plant, only THC and THCa are present in larger concentrations. The reason CBD is not psychoactive is because it has no interaction with the CB1 receptor, it uses a group of other receptors. THC does cause psychoactive effects due to its interaction with the CB1 receptor. More information about THC in the next section.

CBD is not only non-psychoactive, it has many functional properties as a treatment. For example it is proven CBD can be used to treat inflammation, cancer, artery blockage, nausea, seizures, pain and many other conditions. Have a look at the already known list of therapeutic uses of CBD.

Current known therapeutic uses of CBD

Analgesic – Relieves pain.
Antibacterial – Slows bacterial growth.
Antidepressant – Relieves symptoms of depression.
Antioxidant – Prevents the damage of oxidation to other molecules in the body.
Antipsioratic – Cannabidiol is the only cannabinoid identified to treat psoriasis.
Antipsychotic – Tranquilizing effects to relieve symptoms of psychosis, two terpenoids also help (linalool and myrcene).
Antispasmodic – Suppresses muscle spasms.
Anti-Diabetic – CBD is the only cannabinoid identified that helps lower blood sugar levels.
Anti-Emetic – Reduces vomiting and nausea.
Anti-Epileptic – Reduces seizures and convulsions.
Anti-inflammatory – Reduces inflammation systemically.
Anti-Insomnia – Aids with sleep.
Anti-Ischemic – CBD is the only cannabinoid identified that reduces the risk of artery blockage.
Anti-Proliferative – Inhibits cancer cell growth.
Anxiolitic – Cannabidiol is the only cannabinoid identified that relieves anxiety, but two terpenoids also help (linalool and limonene).
Bone Stimulant – Promotes bone growth.
Immunosuppressive – CBD is the only cannabinoid identified that reduces function in the immune system.
Intestinal Anti-Prokinetic – CBD is the only cannabinoid identified that reduces small intestine contractions.
Neuroprotective – Slows damage to the nervous system and brain.
Vasorelaxant – CBD is the only cannabinoid identified that reduces vascular tension.

Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDa) 

CBDa has always been known as a very small part of the cannabinoid profile. Recently higher amounts have been traced in a hybrid strain of cannabis plants. CBDa has its own unique medicinal properties as a cannabinoid and just like CBD it is also non-psychoactive.

CBDa is an acid which can also be heated up to decarboxylate, this process turns the CBDa into CBD. There is still a lot of research to be done on this specific cannabinoid. But the studies so far have proven very promising. Have a look at the unique therapeutic uses of CBDa and why it is used in Renviden products.

Current known Therapeutic Uses of CBDa

Antibacterial – Slows bacterial growth.
Anti-Emetic – Reduces vomiting and nausea.
Anti-inflammatory – Reduces inflammation systemically.
Anti-Proliferative – Inhibits cancer cell growth.

Delta9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) 

What is Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC for short? This is one of the most frequent found cannabinoids naturally found in the resin and crystals of the female cannabis plant. THC is the cannabinoid which is responsible for the psychoactive effects, also refered to as the ‘high’ from cannabis use. THC has many other medicinal functions besides recreational use. For instance THC is proven to be analgesic, neuroprotective and anti-proliferative.

The study of THC all began in 1964 when Israeli chemist Raphael Mechoulam isolated THC from Lebanese hashish. While isolating he discovered that cannabinoids bind to certain neuroreceptors. All because of Mechoulam’s discovery it is that we have been studying cannabis for decades. Much of this research is still going on today. Many of these studies have confirmed THC’s efficacy in treating ailments like arthritis, insomnia, anorexia, sleep apnea and glaucoma, and new discoveries about the cannabinoid THC continue to be made every year.

Where CBD is non-psychoactive due to it has no interaction with CB1 receptor, THC binds with many of the cannabinoid receptors in our brains and central nervous system which causes its psychadelic and euphoric effects. These effects are known to vary by strain and by method of consumption.

Renviden products always contain a small legal amount of THC (amounts permitted by EU-regulations), which in most cases is less than 0,2%. Important to know is that this amount of THC is added to our products to ensure the maximum efficiency of the entourage effect so you can profit most from our products. You can read more about the entourage effect on our website.

Current known Therapeutic Uses of THC

Analgesic – Relieves pain.
Antioxidant – Prevents the damage of oxidation to other molecules in the body.
Antispasmodic – Suppresses muscle spasms.
Anti-Emetic – Reduces vomiting and nausea.
Anti-Proliferative – Inhibits cancer cell growth.
Appetite Stimulant – THC is the only cannabinoid identified that is an appetite stimulant, giving people the stereotypical “munchies” many users describe.
Anxiolitic – While not fully recognized as an anxiolitic compound THC does seem to assist in the anxiety associated with PTSD.
Euphoriant – Produces feelings of euphoria, promotes happiness and relaxation.
Neuroprotective – Slows damage to the nervous system and brain.

Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCa) 

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid is found in the trichomes of the cannabis plant. THCa is the predecessor of THC, which actually only exists in minimum quantities inside the living plant. THCa is the most abundant cannabinoid and terpenoid found in the living plant, which could potentially reach over 30% of the dry weight of  a cannabis flower.

Although THCa is non-psychoactive, it stimulates appetite like THC does. It is a very powerful anti-inflammatory, helps fight cancer and other tumors, it aids with sleeping, and more.

Due to Renvidens unique patented micro-encapsulation technique we can preserve THCa before it converts to THC. This way you can benefit from its therapeutic uses, which are:

Current known Therapeutic Uses of THCa

Analgesic – Relieves pain.
Antispasmodic –  Suppresses muscle spasms.
Anti-Emetic – Reduces vomiting and nausea.
Anti-Inflammatory – Reduces inflammation.
Anti-Insomnia – Aids with sleep.
Anti-Proliferative – Inhibits cancer cell growth.
Modulates Immune System – THCa has been shown to both improve and potentially suppress the immune system functions.
Neuroprotective – Slows damage to the nervous system and brain.

Cannabigerol (CBG)

Cannabigerol is non-psychoactive, even the opposite, it is known to block the psychoactive effects of THC. It has been proven to stimulate the growth of new brain cells in a process referred to as neurogenesis. Neurogenic compounds are extremely rare, which makes CBG a subject worthwile for more research. CBG also aids with isnomnia, it is antibacterial and analgesic. CBG is considered a stem cell cannabinoid and is able to change into different cannabinoids, which alters the overall effects of the plant. CBD, CBG, and CBC share the same molecular formula and weight, but all have a different configuration.

Current known Therapeutic Uses of CBG

Analgesic – Relieves pain.
Antibacterial – Slows bacterial growth.
Anti-Epileptic – Reduces seizures and convulsions.
Anti-Inflammatory – Reduces inflammation systemically.
Anti-Insomnia – Aids with sleep.
Anti-Proliferative – Inhibits cancer cell growth.
Bone Stimulant – Promotes bone growth.
Neurogenic – CBG is the only cannabinoid identified that helps stimulate the growth of new brain cells.

Cannabinol (CBN)

Cannabinol is slightly psychoactive and although way less intense than THC, it is in fact the strongest cannabinoid identified up till now for helping with sleeping problems. Cannabis rich in CBN would therefore be an ideal treatment for insomnia.

Besides treating insomnia there are multiple other benificial uses of CBN. Have a look at the list below to discover the potential of CBN and why Renviden uses CBN in its full spectrum formula.

Current known Therapeutic Uses of CBN

Analgesic – Relieves pain.
Antibacterial – Slows bacterial growth.
Anti-Emetic – Reduces vomiting and nausea.
Anti-Epileptic – Reduces seizures and convulsions.
Anti-inflammatory –  Reduces inflammation systemically.
Anti-Insomnia – CBN aids with sleep.
Anti-Proliferative – Inhibits cancer cell growth.
Appetite Stimulant – CBN appears to be a mild appetite stimulant.
Bone Stimulant – Promotes bone growth by stimulating osteocytes.

Of all the bioactive compounds that have been found in cannabis, it is often cannabinoids and terpenes who are in the spotlight. But there are other important compounds such as flavonoids.

And although flavonoids, or cannaflavins, are less known than cannabinoids and terpenes, they play a vital role in medicinal value of the plant.

While cannabinoids are found primarily in the flowers of the plant, flavonoids are found throughout the flowers, leaves, and stems of the cannabis plant.

The word flavonoid comes from the Latin term flavos, referring to the yellow color as it appears in nature. That makes sense, taking in consideration that a primary function of flavonoids is providing color pigmentation to plants for the purpose of attracting pollinators.

Besides providing plants with colour pigmentation, they provide odor and flavor and protect plants against the elements like UV rays, pests, and diseases.

Thousands of flavonoids have been identified throughout nature in fruit and vegetables, but there are some found exclusively in cannabis.

Research has shown that flavonoids are pharmacologically active, meaning they have medicinal benefits to humans.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

There are about 20 flavonoids in cannabis. Some are:

  • Apigenin – overall antioxidant benefits, anti-inflammatory effect
  • Cannflavin A – found to reduce inflammation 30 times more effectively than aspirin
  • Kaempferol – antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant
  • Luteolin – antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic
  • Bèta-sitosterol – anti-inflammatory
  • Quercetin – antioxidant, antihistamine associated with helping to relieve hay fever and hive, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, antiviral
  • Orientin – anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant
  • Silymarin – anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant

Just like vitamins, minerals are substances that occur in small amounts in food and drinks. They are indispensable for good health and the smooth running of the metabolism.

Minerals are essential for a variety of physical functions, nerve function and metabolic processes. They’re also important for building strong bones and the health of our blood, skin, and hair.

Full-spectrum hemp oil contains minerals like magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, beta carotene, selenium, and manganese.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Magnesium –  reduces inflammation linked to heart disease and diabetes. Beneficial for treating migraine headaches and osteoporosis.

Zinc – needed to let the body’s immune system work correctly. Linked to a lower risk of catching a cold.

Potassium – ensures  that the nerves and muscles can communicate properly. Linked to a reduced risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

Calcium –  Improving the strength of bones and teeth. Reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Important for cell signaling and may help regulate body weight.

Phosphorus – Keeps bone and teeth strong. Helps managing the storing and use of energy.

Iron – Essential for blood production. Helps ensuring the efficient transfer of oxygen from the lungs to working tissues.

Beta carotene– A natural precursor to Vitamin A. May be beneficial for the slowing of macular degeneration and preventing metabolic syndrome.

Selenium – Often taken as a supplement because of its antioxidant properties.

Manganese – Osteoporosis, anemia, important role in the production of bones and connective tissue, metabolism, regulation of blood sugar levels.

WHAT IS CBD FULL SPECTRUM?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Full spectrum is the term used to describe the use of a full range of healthy phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and minerals.

The hemp plant naturally contains over 100 cannabinoids that each, similar to CBD, provide their own unique benefit.

We can’t develop products closer to nature than our full spectrum CBD. Grown from EU certified seeds, harvested by hand and dried in the open fields. After drying we carefully select the flowers and the leaves from the plant, because they have the majority of the cannabinoids inside.

We don’t use any form of extraction for the content of Renviden CBD. No, the dried flower and leaf parts are micronized, filtered and micro-encapsulated into a 100% natural pea-protein. The result is a very clean, taste- and odourless, white CBD-rich protein powder with all the benefits for your endocannabinoid system.

Because the content is protected by proteins, it has an up to 52x higher effect than traditional, non-encapsulated CBD products! This means that you need less product for the same or better results.

WHAT IS CBD ISOLATE?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Although Renviden does not sell Isolate products, we would still like to indicate the difference between CBD Isolate and CBD Full Spectrum.

CBD isolate is the purest form of cannabidiol because it contains only CBD as an active substance without other additives.

During the production of this extract from the industrial hemp plant, CBD is isolated and any additional cannabinoids, THC, terpenes and hemp plant components are dissolved.

What remains is a CBD isolate containing 99% CBD.

CBD isolate has no taste or aroma. Since CBD isolate is around 99% pure, you have control over exactly how much CBD is added to a product (a milligram of CBD isolate equates to about a milligram of CBD).

As CBD isolate does not contain any of the psychoactive THC, it makes CBD isolate a perfect option for those who seek a THC-free product, or if you are sensitive to THC or any other cannabinoid other than CBD.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

RESEARCH

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Which one to choose, CBD Isolate or CBD Full Spectrum?

With CBD isolate you receive the sole benefits of CBD, as where CBD full spectrum provides the synergistic benefits of the whole hemp plant.

Most users prefer the full-spectrum option. But there are many CBD isolate users who are under the impression that by consuming only the CBD cannabinoid and no terpenes or any other components of the plant, they are getting a more powerful or effective dose of CBD.

The choice for CBD isolate or CBD full spectrum depends entirely on your goals and requirements.

The difference between traditional CBD full spectrum and Renviden’s full spectrum CBD is that in Renviden full spectrum CBD the dried flower- and leaf particles are micronized, filtered and micro-encapsulated in pea proteins, is water soluble and has an up to 52 times higher effect than any non-encapsulated CBD oil.

A study by the Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor Immunology, Department of Medicinal and Natural Products, Institute for Drug Research, The Hadassah Medical School, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem – Israel, published in 2015, examined the effectiveness of isolated CBD extracts versus whole plant extracts.

It found that full spectrum CBD will continue to provide inflammation relief as the dose is increased and is more effective than isolate CBD at providing pain relief.
