What exactly is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. This compound occurs in all plant life but is found in higher concentrations in the plants grown specifically for these and other compounds. Azuca CBD is derived directly from the hemp plant grown industrially for its extracts – our product is a Full Spectrum Hemp Extract containing naturally-occurring CBD. While there are over 80 different types of phytocannabinoids, CBD does not produce a “high”, like some of its sister compounds.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a group of fatty compounds found in hemp but also produced by other plants and the human body. These compounds are key players in normal immune and central nervous system functioning. There are more than 80 identified cannabinoids. A system within the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has receptors that these compounds fit into, using cannabinoids to support cells and healthy immune system function. Hemp produces more than 80 different phytocannabinoids naturally. Of the 80+ non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known. Others include Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN) & more.
Do Azuca products and ingredients contain any THC?
All Azuca products do not exceed 0.3% THC. You can view the test results from any Azuca product by scanning the QR code on every package and label.
What is the difference between CBD from hemp and CBD from cannabis?
Hemp-derived CBD is sourced from industrial hemp plants, which are grown primarily for their oils, fiber and seeds. Hemp plants tend to differ from cannabis plants in appearance; they are often tall and skinny, scarce in foliage. The U.S. Government now indicates that hemp is differentiated from cannabis by its levels of THC, the cannabinoid that possesses intoxicating properties. Under U.S. law, a hemp plant and its extracts must contain no more than 0.3% THC.
Does one get “high” from CBD?
No. Our products contain less than 0.3% so there is no psychoactive effect.
What is Azuca’s TiME INFUSION™?
Azuca’s TiME INFUSION™ is what puts Azuca products in a category of their own. Azuca TiME stands for Thermodynamic individual Molecular Encapsulation. It’s the result of numerous patent-pending culinary innovations by Azuca founder Chef Ron Silver. Put simply, Chef Ron came up with a way to encapsulate each individual CBD molecule. This protects the molecule’s integrity from heat, light, and other degradation, and its single-molecule-delivery allows your body to absorb it really fast.
