What is CBD

Cannabidiol or CBD is an extract made from the hemp plant.  Although a sister strain of the more common marijuana plant, hemp is a unique strain on its own.  The common cannabis plant contains a dominant amount of THC.  The hemp plant contains a dominant amount of CBD (within the same cannabinoid family, but with healing properties).  The CBD that is extracted from the hemp plant cannot get you high.  Not all CBD oil is created equally, so it is important to know your source.  All CBD should be 3rd party tested to determine the amount of THC it might have (the legal limit is 0.3%) as well as if it has any metals and other foreign ingredients from the soil.  Our CBD is made with organically grown Colorado Hemp, using a clean C02 extraction and does include 3rd party testing to ensure the purest quality.

How does CBD work

Humans and animals have cannabinoid receptors in the body, called an "endocannabinoid system" or ECS.  Within the ECS, lies a ton of cell receptors that monitor many important processes in the body.  Endocannabinoids help regulate sleep, pain, the function of your immune system, mood, memory and other vital aspects of being a human.  when the ECS is out of whack you are susceptible to disease and other disorders.

The cannabinoid receptors in the body are key to the success of your ECS and your body's ability to achieve homeostasis.  There are 2 main types of receptors in the body - Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) is highly concentrated in the body's nervous system, although most of these receptors are located within the brain and spinal cord, you will still find a smattering of these receptors in other organs and tissues, including the spleen and endocrine glands.  Cannabinoid Receptor 2 (CB2) is found in your peripheral nervous system, including the white blood cells.  These receptors main role is keeping your immune system healthy.  They achieve this by regulating the release of cell-signaling molecules that promote cell to cell communication and expedite the movement of cells towards areas of inflammation.

Why CBD oil works - Think of the cannabinoid receptors in the body as little "landing locations" on our cells with which the cannabinoids can engage.  The cannabinoid receptors (in our body) act as a lock and the cannabinoids (in the hemp oil) as a key.  when the receptors are flooded with cannabinoids it activates them.  Studies have shown this may be useful in helping with pain, inflammation, mood, stress, anxiety, cancer, neuro-disorders and other health issues all with few if any side effects.
