Learn About CBD

What exactly is CBD?

Cannabidoil (CBD) is a chemical compound from the cannabinoid family that naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. Scientists have isolated over 100 different types of cannabidoids in cannabis.

THC is the best known due to its psychoactive properties; that’s what gives you the “high” sensation. CBD, on the other hand, gives you the therapeutic benefits without feeling the psychoactive effect.

This compound interacts with our body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the system that regulates the body’s natural homeostasis moods, sleep, pain, immune function, amongst many other functions. CBD does not alter the functions of the ECS, but rather it enhances the productiveness of the system; which gives the desired effects.

The endocannabinoid receptors affect many parts of our body:

  • Muscles
  • Skin
  • Gut 
  • Spleen
  • Liver
  • Heart
  • Kidneys
  • Bones
  • Blood vessels
  • Lymph cells
  • Reproductive organs

The Power of CBD

Inside all of us are endocannabinoid receptors. These special parts of our biological system that work within the superhighway of our central nervous system. CB1 and CBD2 receptors throughout the body stimulate the endocannabinoid system, which promotes homeostasis, and then does something awesome: it reduces pain and decreases inflammation. Whatever way you take CBD, the health effects are incredible whether it’s topically for skin and connective tissue problems, or orally via a gummy or dropper.

Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is a hybrid strain from L.A. breeder Matt Berger. Berger discovered a phenotype called Kush, a cut of the Afghan Kush landrace strain, that grew in the wild.

Berger experimented indoors with the Kush genetics and a crop of Northern Lights growing them in the same room. They ended up intermingling leaving behind a set of seeds.

It tends to be indica-dominant, producing bulky plants that grow short and stocky. Its flowers are also dense and heavy, inducing a physical state that’ll relax and produce euphoria.

Bubba Kush hemp flowers can produce excellent yields both indoors and out. With it being so dense and thick, it tends to need lots of care with good ventilation to avoid problems with pests and/or mold.
