Pure. Plant-based. Powerful.
Let’s start with two names you’re probably familiar with – hemp and marijuana. Both these plants belong to the cannabis sativa species and contain over 100 compounds called cannabinoids. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the two cannabinoids that we know most about right now, and has a variety of therapeutic benefits. The other is THC or tetrahydrocannabinol but more about this psychoactive compound later. Both hemp and marijuana contain CBD and THC in varying proportions, which brings us to Full-Spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD. Full-Spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoids that are present in the cannabis plant, including CBD and THC. Broad Spectrum CBD does not contain any THC or contains only trace amounts of THC, while retaining all other cannabinoids.
Yes, Awshad tinctures are Full-Spectrum oils extracted from industrial-grade hemp. This means that they contain all the compounds found in the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids like CBD and THC. Why did we choose to go the Full-Spectrum way? The answer is something called ‘The Entourage Effect’ or the theory that the compounds in cannabis work better when they are taken together. These compounds include cannabinoids, terpenes (which give plants their respective fragrances) and flavonoids or plant chemicals found in most fruits and vegetables.
CBD is a naturally-occurring anti-oxidant, anti-depressant, and analgesic with anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. Research has shown that CBD use can prove beneficial in the treatment of a variety of conditions like fibromyalgia, chronic pain, epilepsy, autism, and anxiety. And that’s barely scratching the surface. The universe of research on CBD and its healing properties is expanding everyday.
At Awshad, we offer a combination of rich cannabinoid profiles with powerful botanical extracts and other compounds that work in harmony to give you profound and long-term physical and mental benefits. These include relief from stress and anxiety, improved mood and appetite, better sleep quality and pain management. If you’re a first-time Awshad customer, we highly recommend scheduling a call with our in-house doctor to identify the right product for your condition.
Awshad tinctures are Full-Spectrum oils which means that they contain all the compounds found in the cannabis plant, including CBD and THC.

What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil has medicinal properties and is used for its pain-relieving effects, reducing anxiety and depression. As per Harvard research, CBD is a component of Marijuana and it does not cause high. CBD oil is a 40% extract of the Cannabis plant. In fact, CBD oil is legal in India and other countries too. According to reports, India is one of the biggest consumers of CBD oil.
Will you be jailed for buying CBD oil?
A report in Times of India suggested that cannabidiol (CBD oil) helps in relieving health problems if taken in the prescribed amount. It also helps in anxiety, depression, joint pains, insomnia, and some heart-related issues. The daily reported that only CBD products extracted from hemp are legal to buy and use in our country. However, any of these products with the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content higher than 0.3 per cent will fall in the category of cannabis and will turn illegal under the NDPS act. The major issue with many products that are being sold online is that they don’t mention the content description and there’s no way of finding out if the product carries THC content higher or lower than 0.3 per cent.
Answering the same query, advocate Ayaz Khan told the daily, “I got a lot of queries from various clients, friends because of the media frenzy. My team found that this oil may not be covered as an offence under the NDPS Act.”
So while the usage of CBD oil is not illegal and you can’t be imprisoned, it’s advisable that you check twice with your doctor before its usage and not go buying it without being sure about the guidelines under the NDPS act.
