Understanding Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid and nervous system to have various therapeutic effects. Ingesting cannabinoids through infused products is regarded as a healthier, controlled, and more effective option than inhaling smoke or vapor.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid with therapeutic benefits and no unpredictable psychoactive effects. CBD may help with fatigue, anxiety, pain, inflammation, and more. It is an accepted therapy for symptoms of epilepsy and cancer treatments. Alto CBD Essentials are carefully infused with a hefty 50mg of pure CBD sourced from the finest organic, sun-grown cannabis.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is a cannabinoid with psychoactive effects. THC can induce euphoria, creative inspiration, heightened sensation, and more. On average, expect effects to begin ten to thirty minutes after ingestion, lasting about two hours. Be cautious: in excess, THC can induce paranoia, anxiety, and distress. Every serving of Alto is carefully infused with only 5 milligrams of THC — the cannabis equivalent to a single glass of wine.

Many people who choose not to use cannabinoids still support their legalization. Legalizing cannabis reduces drugbased violence, provides tax revenue to fund public services and schools, and reduces the racial and economic prejudices built into our policing and legal systems.

Alto, a company which profits from the sale of legal cannabis, has a moral obligation to support the decriminalization of marijuana insofar as it is an opportunity for criminal, racial, and economic justice. We unequivocally stand for the clemency of all people currently incarcerated for non-violent, victimless drug charges. We support increasing controlled research on cannabis. Ultimately, we want people to consider cannabinoids as rewarding and acceptable tool to use in pursuit of a healthier, happier, elevated life.

Alto is proud to donate a portion of its profits to Freedom Grow, an organization which helps people in prison for non-violent, victimless cannabis crimes.
