What is CBD?​

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a plant-based cannabinoid that is found in the hemp and cannabis plants. CBD can step in to help the body, when the endocannabinoid production becomes too low, to help regulate these systems. As a result, CBD can help you sleep, ease pain symptoms, and more. CBD is all relaxation without intoxication.

What is CBG?

CBG, or Cannabigerol, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. CBG contains many potential health benefits and works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and more.

Meditation: An Introduction

Meditation is the process of exploring the heart and mind and experiencing the richness of awareness. Practicing it is not about eliminating unwanted things and habits you don’t like about yourself or becoming a better person. In fact, it helps you to see that you are already a complete person and enables you to get in touch with your true nature.

Mindfulness: An Introduction

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in the present moment and doing it intentionally and with non-judgment. It also refers to the intentional acts of regulating your attention through the observation of thoughts, emotions, and body positions.

Frequently Asked Questions​

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound directly derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. While Cannabidiol (CBD) is a component of marijuana (one of the hundreds), it does not cause a “high” itself. It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in different products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.

Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of the many active compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It is found in lower concentrations than THC and CBD and differs from these compounds in several ways. It is currently being studied for its potential pharmacological properties and help with colitis, neurodegeneration, and cancer.

CBG oil is made by extracting CBG from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil. Like other cannabinoids such as CBD and THC, CBG oil interacts with the human body’s own endocannabinoid system. It doesn’t produce the “high” associated with THC and may yield therapeutic benefits without any mind-altering effects.
Stress for a long period of time can affect the body in many ways including headaches, indigestion, ulcers, IBS, dizziness, sexual difficulties, and muscle tension. Whether you’re facing a bully, a break-up, the death of a loved one, a recent financial loss, or family problems, you need to recognize your feelings and work towards a resolution.

Chronic stress can wear down the body’s natural defenses, leading to a variety of physical symptoms like dizziness, headaches, indigestion or acid reflux symptoms, increase in or loss of appetite, muscle tension, sleep depravity, racing heart, tiredness & exhaustion, weight gain or loss, upset stomach & sexual difficulties

CBD oil is made by diluting CBD extract from the cannabis plant with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil. Although it comes from marijuana, CBD oil doesn’t create a “high” effect or any form of intoxication.  CBD oil can help alleviate symptoms of multiple health problems, including acne, chronic pain, epilepsy, and muscle spasms.

All Begum C products are made from USA-grown hemp, which is a legally regulated crop under the U.S. Farm Bill. Hemp carries different phytocannabinoids and many other plant-based compounds. CBD and CBG are just one of these compounds.
CBD could help restore balance to your body’s endocannabinoid system by preventing overstimulation of CB1 receptors and boosting your body’s production of endocannabinoids. CBD relieves Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other anxious behaviors by acting on the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in the processing and forgetting of our fears.

A major factor deriving the legality of CBD is its origin. CBD can be derived from Hemp or Marijuana plants. Former produce CBD with the negligible percentage of THC in comparison to Marijuana, hence no “getting high” factor. Or in technical jargon, as long as the percentage is negligible (0.3%) it is permissible to buy and sell.

Begum C products are made from hemp extract which has THC levels below 0.3%. Our products do not create a high effect, intoxication, or mind-altering effect.
Hemp oil is distinct from CBD oil. While CBD is extracted from the flowers of the cannabis plant, hemp oil is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. The oil has its own benefits, but it does not contain cannabinoids such as CBD and CBG.
Hemp extract is specifically elicited from those parts of the hemp plant that have high levels of cannabidiol. It has anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits.
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. They are the cornerstone of pain relief and healing with cannabis.

The endocannabinoid (EC) system is named after the marijuana plant Cannabis sativa and its active ingredient delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is a unique communications system in the brain and body that directly affects many major functions, including how you feel, move, and react.

The term “entourage effect” means the synergistic manner in which more than 80 cannabinoids and 100+ terpenoids in cannabis work together to produce the healing and relaxing magic that cannabis is recognized for.

Although the effects of CBD vary from person to person, it still can’t achieve a high. THC is the cannabinoid that produces psychoactive effects in your brain. CBD, on the other hand, actually blocks THC’s intoxicating effects. Since CBD derived from Hemp Extract contains little or no THC, you most likely have nothing to worry about.
