CBD (cannabidiol) / CBN is extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant. It has numerous health effects, while having no psychoactive side effect. CBD / CBN therefore does not give a 'high' or 'stoned' effect as other substances from hemp do. A host of health benefits have been seen from CBD / CBN. It is also non-addictive and can be safely taken even in very high doses (>1500 mg/day). Furthermore, little or no side effects are known for CBD / CBN

CBD / CBN has a positive effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Research into the hemp plant has led to the discovery of the 'endocannabinoid system'. Endo stands for body's own. Cannabinoids are produced in the body of both humans and mammals. The phyto (plant) cannabinoids from hemp mimic the body's own cannabinoids, as it were. Because phytocannabinoids were discovered earlier, the body's own cannabinoids are named after them. Every human and every mammal has an endocannabinoid system. This system has an important function in terms of sleep, relaxation, appetite, immune system and many cognitive functions. Again and again, the 'endocannabinoid system' ensures the right balance, such as in cell growth, immune response and the storage and breakdown of fat.
In addition to CBD / CBN, more than 120 different cannabinoids have been discovered, each with unique properties. Just like with colors (a color spectrum), you also speak of a 'spectrum' of cannabinoids with hemp. When an extract from hemp flowers is made, it will contain more cannabinoids than CBD / CBN alone. An extract may also contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the substance with the known high as a side effect. A distinction is therefore made between a 'full' (complete, so including THC)' and a 'broad' (broad) spectrum. This is mainly due to legislation. After all, THC is still a banned substance in many countries, so the maximum permitted amount of THC in a product is laid down in law. In reality, it means that even if there are 'trace' THC in a product, it should be stated on the packaging as 'full' spectrum. At Kraatje you will find both full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD and CBN products. The amount of THC present in our full spectrum CBD and CBN products is negligible (0.05%). It has no psychoactive effects and the THC will not be visible in a (blood) test. The special thing is that the various cannabinoids support each other's effect. This is referred to as an 'entourage effect'.
The health effects of hemp have been researched for centuries. In recent decades, modern extraction methods and research techniques have allowed research to be focused even more specifically. Numerous health effects are known for CBD / CBN, as well as other cannabinoids. You will find some information about this on the website of the Dutch Bureau of Medicinal Cannabis. Furthermore, research into the effect of CBD / CBN and other cannabinoids can be found on scientific publication websites such as PubMed. The strict legislation means that Kraatje is not allowed to mention anything about the effect or health effects of CBD / CBN and other cannabinoids.
