GoGreen Hemp CBD Glossary

Cannabinoids: There are nearly 85 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, the two most prominent cannabinoids are THC and CBD. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds which are produced by cannabis flowers and can provide relief to an array of symptoms. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, however our bodies may have a deficiency which may lead to imbalances in our homeostasis and overall well-being. This void can be filled by supplementing cannabinoids.Essentially they mediate communication between cells by using our CB1and CB2 receptors in our endocannabinoid system. When there are deficiencies in our endocannabinoid system harmful symptoms and physical issues can arise.


Endocannabinoid System: The ECS system is a vast network of cell receptor proteins with many functions. It has four primary functions which include neuroprotection, stress recovery, immune balance, and homeostatic regulation. CBD is able to interact with cells in our bodies because the molecule has similar composition to a chemical that our body produces naturally called endocannabinoids.


CBD: Cannabidiol, better known as CBD is a phytocannabinoid with extreme potential. It is found in cannabis and/or industrial hemp. Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and there are more than 80 identified cannabinoids. CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with exponential potential to change the world around us.


THC: Also known as Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for that feeling of euphoric high.


MCT: MCT are medium-chain triglycerides, a saturated fatty acid that has various health benefits..  MCT oil is efficiently metabolized and is almost immediately available to the body as an energy supply.  Our GoGreen Hemp oil tinctures are infused with MCT oil and hemp extract to provide a quality product.


Carrier Oil: There are various carrier oils available in the CBD market. Carrier oil is used to dilute the CBD to a level that is enjoyable to get your daily dose of CBD. The two most prominent carrier oils in the CBD market are hempseed / grapeseed oil and MCT oil.


CB-1 Receptors: Receptors found primarily in the central nervous system (brain and spine).  Receptors are essentially office spaces for molecules to set up shop and f


CB-2 Receptors: Receptors found primarily in the peripheral nervous system.  These receptors are located within the nerves that connect the central nervous system and other organs of the body, including sensory organs, muscles, blood vessels and glands.


Terpenes: Terpenes are organic compounds are found in essential oils of plants that provide an aroma.
