What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants and are primarily responsible for their smell. While plants will produce them to influence their external environments (e.g. attract pollinators, deter pests, etc.). Many also have physiological benefits for humans and can act on the endocannabinoid system in the body in a similar way to cannabinoids. The key difference from CBD is that the body absorbs and uses these compounds in different ways.

Is CB2™ the same as CBD?

No. When compared to CBD, our CB2™:

1) Directly activates CB2 receptors (CBD does NOT activate any cannabinoid receptor)

2) Has far better bioavailability (bioavailability is one of the main limiting factors for CBD)

3) Likely due to the two reasons above, it has about a 60-70% success rate… Or 2 out of every 3 people will find it works (CBD’s success rate is only about 33% or 1 out of 3 find it works)

4) 100% GRAS status (Generally Recognised As Safe), making CB2™ as safe to consume as food (CBD had its self-affirmed GRAS status revoked by the US FDA)

5) Just because an ingredient is GRAS, however, doesn’t mean it’s safe for dogs. We only use ingredients proven to be safe for humans AND dogs (CBD still has many gaps in knowledge on safety and toxicology–not just for humans, but especially for dogs).

6) Far more affordable! (By a LOT!)

Does CB2™ contain CBD?

No. The terpene blends do not contain CBD. The hemp seed oil may have trace amounts around 10 ppm.

Will CB2™ work for me?

Cannanda™ CB2™ products have an estimated success rate of 60-70% (or 2 out of 3 will benefit), making this one of the most successful products on the market (by contrast, most therapeutic products have a success rate of 30-50%).

Since the unique blend of terpenes in Cannanda™ CB2™ works through activation of your body’s CB2 receptors, how much of a benefit you feel will depend on a number of factors related to your physiology. First, your body has to produce enough CB2 receptors in the area you are looking for relief. For example, if you sprained your ankle, your body would normally up-regulate the expression of CB2 receptors around your ankle so that when you use these terpenes, you’ll find relief. If your body doesn’t adequately up-regulate CB2 receptors, there will not be enough receptors to activate, so you won’t feel the benefits of the terpenes as much. BUT pay attention to other areas of your body… you might find that other aspects of your health are improved (those areas where CB2 receptors are present in sufficient quantities).

Second, the CB2 receptors’ conformation must be in the “open” configuration. This allows the terpenes to activate CB2 receptors and transmit a signal into the cell. If, however, the receptors are in the “closed” configuration, the terpenes might not be able to activate the receptors, or the signal might not be transmitted as it should.

If either of these factors is sub-optimal, the benefits you experience might be muted (although you might still get benefits to other areas of your body in unexpected ways).

Can I take CB2™ and CBD together?

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend this. It can, in fact, increase the absorption of CBD, meaning you can take less CBD!

Can I take Cannanda™’s products with other medications?

Does not have adverse drug interactions (CBD has numerous known adverse drugs interactions, and can be dangerous for anyone taking certain medications). However, keep your prescribing doctor informed so that they can make any adjustments to your medications as needed.

Is CB2™ Dog Ease safe for dogs?

We only use ingredients proven to be safe for humans AND dogs.

Is CB2™ suitable for vegans?

Yes. It is produced from 100% natural plant ingredients. It is also:

  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten free
  • Dairy free
  • Nut free
  • Sugar free
  • Fish free

Will Cannanda™’s products show up on drug tests?

Safe for anyone who is drug tested for work or athletic events (most CBD products have undisclosed THC, and even pure CBD, called CBD isolates, can break down over time into compounds that result in a positive test for banned substances).

Can I travel with CB2™/Cannanda™’s products?

Legal to travel with internationally (an important point as international travel starts to open up again–you cannot travel across international borders with CBD). Hemp seed oil may be prohibited in some countries, so always check local laws before travelling.

Are CB2™/Cannanda™’s products safe to use during pregnancy?

We do not recommend using if you’re pregnant or breast feeding.

What is Stearidonic Acid (SDA)?

Considered an omega-3 fatty acid, SDA is an alternative non-fish, vegetarian source of omega-3s. When most think of vegetarian sources of omega-3s, ALA comes to mind. While ALA-rich foods often are recommended as an additional or alternative source of omega-3s for those who don’t or can’t consume fish, the conversion of ALA to longer long-chain fatty acids like EPA and DHA is inefficient.

The benefit of SDA is that its conversion is far more efficient, making SDA an important fatty acid for everyone, especially vegetarians.

Unfortunately, dietary sources of SDA are limited, but hemp seeds are one of the best! Each tbs of Cannnada™ CB2™ Hemp Seed Oil provides approximately 190 mg of SDA in addition to our multi-award-winning, doctor-formulated CB2™ blend of terpenes that your CB2 receptors love.

What is Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)?

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an “essential” fatty acid, which means that the body does not produce this fatty acid on its own and, therefore, must be consumed from the diet. Your body uses GLA to produce substances that support cardiovascular health (helps maintain cholesterol levels and build HDL—the “good” cholesterol) and helps to make the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves (this is what’s damaged in Multiple Sclerosis). GLA supplements are often used to treat arthritis, ADHD, PMS, discomforts of menopause, MS, and liver cirrhosis.

Each tbps of Cannnada™’s CB2™ Hemp Seed Oil provides a high amount of GLA (approximately 480 mg) in addition to our multi-award-winning, doctor-formulated CB2™ blend of terpenes that activate your CB2 receptors.

What is CB2 Agonist

If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you might have seen the term “CB2 agonist” many times, especially with respect to the CB2 studies we share. The simple explanation is: An agonist is a chemical that binds to a receptor and activates the receptor to produce a biological response. (By contrast, an “antagonist” blocks the action of the agonist, while an “inverse agonist” binds to the receptor but causes an action opposite to that of the agonist.) Hence “CB2 agonists” are chemicals (whether natural like our Cannanda™ CB2™ products or THC, or synthetic compounds like some pharmaceuticals) that bind to CB2 receptors and activates them to bring about a biological response.

Taking it one step further, a “selective” CB2 agonist is one that binds to only the CB2 receptor, but not other receptors. This is where Cannanda™ CB2™ products (which are “selective” for just CB2™ receptors) differ from something like THC (which also bind with CB1 receptors), and why our products bring about nearly all the same health benefits as cannabis, but without the intoxication associated with CB1 activation.
