About Naturecan

alphagreen

Founded by Andy Duckworth and Paul Finnegan in May of 2019, Naturecan is emerging as one of the leading CBD brands in the UK. The company mainly focuses on the production of premium and safe hemp-based products. In addition to that, the brand also manufactures health supplements such as vitamins and minerals.

What makes Naturecan trustworthy are its close ties with reputable organizations such as the UK's Centre for Medicinal Cannabis (CMC), and the Association for Cannabinoid Industry (ACI). Both organizations certify and regulate CBD products to ensure that they meet the specified requirements. These merits keep Naturecan on its toes, ensuring supply chain excellence.

Furthermore, with the FSA recently keeping a close eye on CBD, Naturecan makes a point to effectively comply with each and every cannabis regulation enacted in the state.

What you should know about CBD?

Discovered in 1942, CBD is an organic substance that exists in Cannabis Sativa L. plants. Research suggests that there are over 100 phytocannabinoids in these plants. Some of these compounds include Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabinol (CBN), and Cannabigerol (CBG). After the discovery of CBD, the world witnessed a boom in cannabidiol use due to its numerous health benefits. Before getting to that, below are some of the questions you might have regarding CBD.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Is CBD a psychoactive substance?

Cannabidiol can bind to receptors of the Central Nervous System (CNS) to produce several effects. However, it will not cause you to get "high".

  • Is CBD addictive?

Currently, there is no evidence to show that CBD can cause addiction.

  • Is it regulated

In the UK, the cannabis industry is being monitored by several organisations including  the Cannabis Trades Association (CTA). The CTA is the oldest and largest cannabinoid organisation that has an influence in all sectors of the UK cannabis industry. It promotes good hemp farming and manufacturing practices, and makes sure that CBD users have access to quality information.

  • Is it legal?

Due to the increased knowledge of the potential health benefits of CBD and its non-intoxicating nature, most countries in Europe and the USA have lifted its ban. However, before you begin to use it, make sure you understand the regulations in your region or country.

  • Is it safe?

According to research, CBD is a safe substance. As long as it's used appropriately as recommended by manufacturers, you won't be harmed. However, if taken in large doses for an extended period, it may cause side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea, headache, and changes in appetite.

  • Topical products

The CBD ingredient found in topical products (skincare and cosmetics) does not pass from the skin into the bloodstream. This means, when you use it topically, you will mostly benefit from its effects on the skin. You can enjoy health benefits such as joint and muscle pain relief. Additionally, it can improve the general health of your skin.

  • Is it beneficial to health?

A lot has been said about the potential health benefits of CBD. And, a lot of people testify of the amazing health effects they experience when they use the substance. However, you should not try to use it to diagnose, cure, or treat any diseases. It is recommended to be used as a supplement to promote a healthier lifestyle.

Roles of CBD in the body

A few decades after the discovery of CBD, a researcher called Dr Raphael Mechoulam became interested in finding its mechanism of action. This helped to figure out its potential applications and benefits. As he carried out his research, he stumbled upon a biological system that he called the endocannabinoid system.

What's an endocannabinoid system?

An Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a cell signalling system found in the bodies of humans and other vertebrae organisms. It consists of cannabinoid receptors that can be stimulated by neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids. So far, the commonly known cannabinoid receptors are CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the peripheral and central nervous systems.

As for endocannabinoids, these are chemical substances (cannabinoids) that are manufactured within the body. Two of the prominently known are anandamide and 2-AG.

The function of the ECS

When endocannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors, signals that regulate various physiological systems of the body are actioned. This keeps interdependent systems of the body in perfect balance, a phenomenon known as homeostasis.

The skin

The skin is a dynamic organ that also possesses an endocannabinoid system. This ECS has a homeostatic function, i.e. to regulate cellular activities such as cell differentiation, reproduction, immune response, and hormonal function.

CBD supplements

Researchers found that endocannabinoids of the ECS have similarities with phytocannabinoids of plants. After learning about this, they closely examined the metabolic pathways of CBD and found that it can interact with receptors of the endocannabinoid system. It can mimic the actions of some endocannabinoids in the maintenance of homeostasis of both the body and the skin.

Other than homeostasis, CBD can provide health benefits such as:

Pain relief

Research shows that CBD possesses anti-inflammatory properties that can help minimise pain and inflammation. By rubbing CBD creams on specific regions of the skin, you can relieve body aches, muscle soreness and cramps. Additionally, you can use CBD on joints to alleviate chronic pain.

Anxiety relief

When you take CBD orally, you can benefit from reduced levels of anxiety. This is because CBD promotes the production of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a substance that is used to regulate mood.

Enhanced Immunity

In addition to anti-inflammatory effects, CBD carries strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are prominent for their ability to combat free radicals in the body. Free radicals can speed up skin ageing and trigger chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases.

Acne reduction

When you apply CBD on the skin, it can soothe inflamed skin. Research indicates that inflammation is responsible for the occurrence of acne on the skin. Thus, using its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD may improve this condition.

Neuroprotection

Some studies suggest that CBD can protect your brain from cognitive degeneration. It is currently being studied for potential application for ageing problems like Alzheimer's, Schizophrenia, and Parkinson's diseases.

Enhanced bone health

Users of CBD can benefit stronger bones. This is because CBD stimulates the bone marrow to manufacture structural cells needed for new bone formation. Because of this, scientists believe that CBD may help with conditions such as osteoporosis.

Other applications

Cannabidiol has many promising applications. As we speak, a lot of scientific investigations are underway to find out about its usability in the formulation of drugs for a variety of diseases.
