▾ How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?
CBD is a very personal thing and varies from person to person. It works by solving a deficiency in the the endocannabinoid system. For some people that deficiency can be resolved within minutes of taking a product, others it may take consistent usage for weeks. Main factors that dictate onset are Age, Height and Weight. CBD will not induce a high or feeling of euphoria.

▾ What is a Cannabinoid?
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds created from the Cannabis sativa plants. Cannabinoids are found in other plants and are created in our body as well. They play a pivotal role in regulating our endocannabinoid system.
▾ What makes hemp plants different from marijuana plants?
Hemp and marijuana appear very similar in sight and smell and they are part of the Cannabis sativa plant family. The difference between the two is the amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the federally illegal compound that is responsible for the high and psychotropic effects. The Agricultural Act of 2014 set the difference between the two plants at 0.3% THC. Under is considered hemp, over is considered marijuana.

▾ How much CBD should I take?
Because each person’s body structure is unique, it is difficult to set a predetermined measurement that is right for everyone. It is recommended to consult a doctor or health professional to determine an amount right for you.
▾ How does CBD work?
CBD has the ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Plant cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, bind with this system which helps regulate certain vital functions of the body, including sleep, appetite, immune, pleasure, pain, inflammation, and more. When the ECS is in sync, the human body is able to achieve what is called homeostasis, which means your body is operating optimally.
Unfortunately, under the assault of stress, illness, or injury, your body may not produce enough endocannabinoids to fulfill communication requirements. The system then becomes unbalanced and communication deteriorates. Much like a daily vitamin, CBD, one of the many cannabinoids found in industrial hemp plants, supplements the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a vital role in one's overall health and wellness. Thus, daily supplementation of hemp-derived CBD can support the functionality of the Endocannabinoid System.
▾ What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
It’s a biological system composed of fat based neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. The CB1 and CB2 receptors were the first receptors discovered and are two of the most studied.
CB1 receptors are located mainly throughout the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are more concentrated throughout the peripheral organs, immune cells, and the gastrointestinal tract.
The endocannabinoids produced in the body are chemical messengers. These messengers tell your body’s receptors to promote healing, or when to stop and help maintain a healthy balance. The body constantly seeks this balance called homeostasis.
