The hemp cultivated for CBD extraction and to make CBD brownies is grown in the USA. Naturecan ensures that the product is grown and manufactured under strict guidelines to obtain the best quality. The brand joined the Association for the Cannabis Industry (ACI), which is responsible for the regulation and certification of companies in the cannabis industry. Naturecan joined the ACI as part of its ongoing efforts to comply with the regulatory requirements set by the FSA (Food Standards Agency) regarding CBD products.
The ACI ensures that organizations have management systems in place that are in line with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). The GMPs are a set of procedures and practices that are put in place in order to ensure that quality is maintained throughout the production process. Putting in place GMPs hence provides quality guaranteed products.
Although GMPs are different from state to state, they are based on the same fundamental principles. These principles include the following:
- Documentation of all procedures and processes
- Minimizing the risk of contamination of product from the process or the manufacturing environment
- Production of quality and safe products
- Engaging competent personnel in the manufacturing process
The basics about CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the phytocannabinoid compounds that are found in Cannabis sativa plants. Although more than 113 cannabinoids exist in the plant, only a few of these cannabinoids have been studied so far. CBD is one of the cannabinoids that has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years. This is because CBD has been shown to have various beneficial effects on the human body. Apart from CBD, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another cannabinoid compound that has been well studied. THC has also been found to have effects on the human body. However, THC is capable of eliciting psychoactive effects, and the consumption of it will often lead to intoxication. Please note that this CBD brownie has been tested and contains no THC.
Mechanism of action
The mechanism of action of CBD has been studied by many researchers. Although the mechanism is not yet fully understood, it has been found that CBD interacts with different types of receptors in the body. Studies suggest that CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system through the modification of cannabinoid receptors. In addition to this, it has also been shown to interact with some other non-cannabinoid receptors.
In interacting with both the cannabinoid and non-cannabinoid receptors, CBD has been shown to produce a variety of beneficial effects.
Some of the beneficial effects of CBD include the following:
The CBD used in the manufacturing of this product is a broad-spectrum hemp extract. Being broad-spectrum means that it not only contains CBD but a variety of other compounds found in the cannabis plant, except for THC. These other compounds include terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and other phytocannabinoids. Evidence has been put forward that all of these other compounds possess therapeutic effects of their own. In addition, their presence with CBD has been shown to enhance the effects of CBD, an effect called the “entourage effect”. This CBD brownie will, therefore, give you enhanced effects due to this combined effort.
Nevertheless, please note that this CBD brownie is not to be substituted for medicinally prescribed drugs. It can only be used to enhance one’s health system and should be used as part of a varied diet for a healthy lifestyle.

Functions of ingredients
When formulating the CBD brownie, a careful selection of ingredients was made in order to deliver a product of the highest quality. The product contains a broad-spectrum CBD oil. In addition to this, the product is made with all-natural sweeteners and does not contain anything artificial. Apart from brown sugar, the product contains vegetable glycerine and oat syrup, which are sweeteners or sugar substitutes.
Vegetable glycerine (VG) is a natural chemical that is derived from vegetable oil. VG has a sweet taste and is generally regarded as a safe food additive by the FDA. Due to its sweetness, it is used in a variety of food products as a sweetener or sugar replacement. Oat syrup is also a sweetener or sugar substitute derived from oats. The addition of these natural sweeteners helps to increase the sweetness while keeping the calories down. This is because they contribute fewer calories than sugar.
The snack is also protein powered and contains some high-quality proteins as part of its ingredient panel. Hydrolyzed wheat protein, pea protein, and soy protein have been used in making this awesome product. Hydrolyzed wheat protein is a brown liquid that is derived from wheat germ. Hydrolysis breaks down the peptide bonds of wheat protein and creates smaller amino acid chains that are more bioavailable.
Pea protein is made by extracting the protein from yellow peas. It is a premium-quality protein and a potent source of iron. Studies have shown that pea protein has a wide array of health benefits. These include boosting muscle growth, increasing feelings of fullness, and promoting heart health. Soy protein powder is a high-quality plant protein derived from defatted soybeans. Though more research is needed on the subject, Soy protein may provide several potential health benefits. Some studies show that it might be able to reduce cholesterol and possibly reduce the risk of cancer.
When formulating the product, the consumers’ health was taken into consideration. The oils incorporated into the product were chosen for their beneficial health properties. Apart from CBD oil, coconut oil, and olive oil were also used in making the brownie. Coconut oil is the oil obtained from the kernel of the coconut. It has been shown to have some anti-diabetic and cholesterol-lowering properties. Olive oil is very popular for its unsaturated fat content and is regarded by many as the healthier option among oils. Olive oil contains vitamins E and K. There are numerous claims that it has beneficial effects for diabetes, cancer, and the heart.
Gum acacia is a fibrous product made from the natural sap of the Acacia tree. It is generally regarded as safe for human consumption. Gum acacia is often used in baked goods as a stabilizer and as a source of natural soluble fiber. It has been associated with a variety of benefits, including the following:
- Providing a source of prebiotics and soluble fiber
- Feeding healthy bacteria in the gut
- Helping enhance fullness and satiety
- Helping with weight loss and potential prevention of obesity
- Helping regulate cholesterol levels
The brownie has also been flavored with cocoa powder and double chocolate chips, creating an irresistible double chocolate flavour.
