Learn About CBD

WHAT IS CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid that comes from the Hemp plant that helps your body produce more endogenous cannabinoids. CBD does not cause any psychoactive effects. CBD combined with our proprietary terpenes are more effectively absorbed as certain terpenes/essential oils also work with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our brains and bodies. Our CBD is derived from all organic, pesticide free, Non-GMO hemp grown in the USA that is further refined from CO extracted process and is third party lab tested to guarantee no heavy metals and other harmful substances. 

Differences between CBD and THC

 

WHAT ARE TERPENES?

Terpenes are essential oils found in plants that are responsible for smell and taste. Certain terpenes work on the CB1 and CB2 receptors which help to open the blood brain barrier. This allows for maximum absorption of CBD with added benefits. Terpenes are known to add to the entourage effects in our products.

HOW DOES CBD WORK WITH MY BODY?

The Endocannabinoid System

 CBD works with the endocannabinoid system in your body. 

What is the endocannabinoid system? 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. 

Endocannabinoid receptors in the body

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.

CB1 work with: Motor Activity, Appetite, Motor Coordination, Immune Cells, Short Term Memory & Pain Perception 

CB2 work with: Gut, Kidneys, Pancreas, Liver Skeletal Muscle, Bone, Eyes, Skin, Tumors, Reproductive System, Immune System, Respiratory Tract, & Cardiovascular System
