Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is the acronym for “Cannabidiol.” Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid which was discovered in 1940.
Where does CBD come from?
CBD is primarily derived from the hemp plant. Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant that contains little or no THC (less than 0.3%).
Is hemp the same as marijuana?
No, hemp is not the same as marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are both plants within the cannabis species, but they have significant differences. One of the biggest differences is that Hemp contains little to no THC, the compound in marijuana that produces psychoactive effects.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system is made up of a wide variety of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. While CBD is a phytocannabinoid, a cannabinoid that is found in plants, the human body also produces its own cannabinoids known as endocannabinoids. The ECS regulates and controls many of our most critical bodily functions such as learning and memory, emotional processing, sleep, temperature control, pain control, inflammatory and immune responses, and eating. It is important to note that every human’s endocannabiniod systems are different.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are highly aromatic compounds. Terpenes will often dictate the aroma that comes from plants, and even some fruit. Naturally, cannabis also contains terpenes. Terpenes are known to have an effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in ways similar to cannabinoids. The effects of terpenes on each person depends on the concentration of the terpene itself and how a person uses it. Many people believe that incorporating specific terpenes into a CBD-wellness regiment can create an extraordinarily beneficial effect, commonly referred to as the Entourage Effect. Terpenes can be found in everyday household uses like lavender, lemon, pine, etc.
Why NanoGold, and How Does It Work?
After 7 years in research and development, Aevum has the most advanced nanogold formula, which is far superior and more affordable than the competing brands. Aevum has developed a fine powder made of gold nanoparticles that have been functionalized with collagen peptides and chitosan due to their cell regenerative properties or D-Ribose because of its believed ability to regulate gene expression.
We decided to utilize the incredible benefits of our NanoGold formulation in topical applications in order to try to give you a better chance and an effective remedy that would address your primary concerns for aging (either in skincare or pain management) at a deeper level.
To understand how this all works and benefits your skin and body, imagine these gold nanoparticles as an armored transport vehicle that is loaded up with the beneficial molecules to cross the skin barrier. Due to gold’s ability to easily transport the necessary nutrients across barriers, it makes it possible to treat symptoms beyond the surface level.
Due to the antioxidant and antibacterial nature of gold nanoparticles, it is the perfect ingredient for topical applications as it protects against the negative effects of free-radicals and bacterial inflammation, which are considered the primary sources of disease and aging. Ultimately, it is believed to help the body become rebalanced and function properly.
How is Our Nanogold Different From Other Gold Products?
While competing brands may advertise the use of colloidal gold technology or gold salts, they often use too low concentrations of colloidal gold (10 to 20 ppm) which creates a negative charge, rendering its benefits limited.
