Quicksilver Scientific brings you a standardized, highly bioavailable form of cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychogenic yet highly physiologically active compound derived from the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. Cannabinoids, the family of compounds found in C. sativa, have been shown to have a broad influence on the body, impacting expression of more than 1000 genes. Among these genes, they have been shown to upregulate expression of cellular antioxidant defenses through pathways including Nrf2, a primary regulator of cellular antioxidant production, and downregulate that of many inflammatory signaling molecules.*
The immune system and nervous system produce endogenous cannabinoids which activate the CB1 and CB2 receptors. When taken orally, cannabinoids have an effect of increasing levels of the endogenous endocannabinoids and also interact with these receptors. Cannabinoids may act as neuroprotective antioxidants, with studies demonstrating an effect superior to alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) and ascorbate (vitamin C) in preventing glutamate toxicity.* Cannabinoids support a balanced mood and neurotransmitter balance, as well as modulate CNS excitability and the immune system response.* They also support musculoskeletal system function and joint health.*
