*1 CBD (cannabidiol)
One of the bioactive cannabinoid compounds, contained in industrial hemp.

*2 Circadian Rhythm
An important biological process that regulates our internal clock, roughly every 24 hours. Research has confirmed the gene that regulates this internal rhythm and its function. The Clock, Bmall, Per, and Cry genes are the main rhythmic genes that support gene transcription. It is believed that a negative feedback cycle is formed in the transcription/transition mechanism consisting of the gene product and the expression regulation site. The transcription is maintained by increasing or decreasing in a cycle of roughly 24 hours. This mechanism is the main biological rhythm oscillation for roughly 24 hours. This gene is found in almost all cells in the human body and each organ has its own unique rhythm. Furthermore, the gene not only maintains the internal biological clock, but also directly and indirectly contributes to the rhythm expressions differently, like a timer controlling on and off throughout the day. It efficiently maintains an optimal internal environment through this process. Today, reports are published frequently, claiming that environmental changes, such as stress, sleep deprivation, overeating, irregular diet, have been the main causes of poor lifestyle-related diseases and psychological conditions, suggesting the underlying relevance of circadian rhythm in their weakened health.
