The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) consists of cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoid molecules and their metabolic enzymes. It is a recently discovered, yet crucial molecular system that the body uses to help maintain homeostasis. Your body naturally produces endocannabinoids, and phytocannabinoids are the equivalent cannabinoid molecules produced from the cannabis plant.
CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 receptors are mostly in the secondary organs, especially in cells associated with the immune system.
CBD is one of the many compounds contained in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-intoxicating, lacks psychoactive or euphoric effects. CBD has been found to have many beneficial therapeutic effects, with minimal side-effects.
The Entourage Effect is a principle that supports “whole plant” medicine. Historically, science has formulated medicine as THC-only and CBD-only medication. Recent studies, however, have shown that “whole plant” medicine, utilizing the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, is more effective and has a more holistic effect on the body.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), are both a series of International standards that ensure that Wellness, Supplement, and Cosmetic products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use.
The safest and most reliable pharmaceutical-quality products also meet these International standards. Under GMP and ISO, Satisan’s production and testing processes are clearly documented and archived for Quality Assurance.
Non-Intoxicating THC “Free”
Under EU Standards, only Certified seeds of specified hemp varieties with a THC content not to exceed 0.2% may be used in Hemp/CBD products (EU Regulation 1307/2013). This insures that these products are non-psychoactive and do not pose a risk of becoming ‘high’.
Satisan products take this a step further to declare these products are THC-‘Free’, by requiring that all our products contain <0.1% (or less than half the amount acceptable by EU Regulation).
Full Spectrum Cannabinoids
The Hemp plant produces over 100 different phyto-nutrients and phyto-cannabinoids. The Hemp Oil used in Sativa•L CBD products is required to be more than a simple ‘Isolate’ or ‘powdered extract’, but a Full Spectrum Oil that not only contains CBD, but also terpenes, flavonoids and trace amounts of other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBG and CBN. These will typically be in ratios that are naturally occurring and extracted from the botanical hemp plant.
The alternative to full spectrum products is CBD Isolate, which is typically 99% pure molecular CBD. These products typically have nothing in them but CBD, because the CBD has literally been isolated from all the other beneficial properties of the plant. Pure CBD is good but not ideal, as the cannabinoid (CB) receptors of the human body are best activated with a combination of cannabinoids working together in concert. Only Full Spectrum Hemp Oil products offer the advantage of this “Entourage Effect”.
Sativa•L Full Spectrum products naturally contain a variety of beneficial phyto-cannabinoids and phyto-nutrients. In addition to CBD, we extract as many good, beneficial compounds found naturally in the hemp plant as possible, to better harness this synergistic effectiveness.
Designed in the US, Made in the EU:
Provenance can tell us a lot about a Product….
Designed in Colorado= Cannabis Innovation. The State of Colorado in the U.S. was the first major geographic region on the planet to make Cannabis consumption fully Legal since prohibition. We have been Innovators in Hemp and CBD products for over a decade.
Made in the EU= Craftsmanship, Precision, Attention to Detail, Quality, Integrity, and Trust. GMP/ISO Certified production facilities in the EU are absolutely state-of-the-art. We are proud to have Satisan products manufactured in the European Union, to be enjoyed everywhere.
GLP is a set of International principles intended to assure the quality and integrity of non-clinical laboratory studies to support Research and/or Marketability Certificates for products regulated by Government Agencies.
Sativa•L thoroughly tests our products in critical analysis to ensure Potency, Consistency and Purity. We test not only percentages of CBD, but also the presence of other cannabinoids in our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil to insure full Regulatory Compliance.
