CBD (Cannabidiol)

What is CBD?

CBD is Cannabidiol, a natural, non-psychoactive compound promoting everyday balance, health and wellness.

How CBD works

CBD directly interacts with a network of receptors in the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

A Wide Range of Health Benefits

The ECS affects appetite, sleep, energy balance, metabolism, stress response, immune function, muscle spasticity, reproduction, neurogenesis, and pain. CBD helps to promote a healthy state of balance in the endocannabinoid system.
Although CBD is still in the early stages of scientific research and clinical trials, there is increasing evidence that CBD offers a range of options to assist with the relief of stress, anxiety and inflammation, an underlying cause of muscular discomfort, and joint pain.

Will CBD Get Me High?

No, CBD will not get you high. Unlike THC, which is found in cannabis-derived extracts and marijuana, CBD has no psychoactive (mind-altering) side effects; it will not produce a “high”. The hemp-derived CBD extract contains no THC, making it a preferred choice for some.

How Can I Use CBD?

CBD is a powerful antioxidant that can be ingested and used externally on your skin. Studies have found that CBD is an even stronger antioxidant than Vitamin C, E, A, and tumeric!

CBD can be used topically in balms, creams and oils to help with stiff muscles and sore joints. More and more, people are using these same products as part of their skin care routine. CBD oil is deeply moisturizing, provides a protective layer to the skin, and its anti-inflammatory properties can help keep skin looking healthy and youthful.

CBD is best known as an oil that people take for anxiety and sleep. But as we make advances in science, some companies are going beyond the basic oil to formulate wellness products that combine CBD with powerful blends of vitamins, nutrients and herbal extracts.
