What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 100+ active compounds found in the hemp plant called cannabinoids. CBD is one of the naturally occurring essential oils extracted from the hemp plant and it works to reduce anxiety, pain, inflammation and sleep issues without any mentally intoxicating effects or “high” for the person using it.

We’ve discovered profound benefits from using the Hemp plant regularly and want to share all our learnings to help along your personal journey. By promoting better whole body recovery and balance throughout your day, we believe there’s potential to discover an untapped version of yourself to help you feel less stress, anxiety, pain, better sleep and quality of life–so you can do more of the things you love, with the people you love.

How Does CBD work in the body

CBD's Main Benefits

Pain Relief

CBD supports your existing ECS by interacting with the enzyme (FAAH) that breaks down anandamide. Anandamide is a natural endocannabinoid found in the body that helps with pain relief and anxiety. Your body makes this when it moves— we don’t move enough, thus more people are living in pain and anxiety than ever before.

CBD & Pain Relief

Anxiety & Stress

CBD binds to a receptor that triggers a serotonin release in our bodies, resulting in the reduction of stress and anxiety. This activation of the parasympathetic nervous system helps transition our bodies from stress to safety more quickly.

Sleep

When our bodies are experiencing less pain and inflammation, have better gut health and have a reduction in general stress and anxiety, this often results in a much better night's sleep.

Energy & Focus

CBD works to regulate the ECS, keeping your body's sleep-wake cycle balanced which can sustain your energy throughout the day. It can also increase energy levels due to its ability to positively impact protein synthesis and expression within areas of the brain. All of these outcomes combined with its interaction with serotonin release in our bodies (reducing stress and anxiety) results in an increase of mental energy and enhanced mental focus.

Inflammation

CBD helps the body process Omega 3s, which aid in resolving bodily inflammation. A number of studies in the past 10 years suggest that CBD’s ability to inhibit an enzyme called COX2 (something that medicines like Advil or Aspirin target), can make CBD an effective tool in suppressing inflammatory responses.

Appetite

The ECS is a key player in keeping our guts healthy (digestion of food + host defense). CB1 and CB2 receptors are found in our gut, since CBD and THC interact with these receptors scientists have found that it can promote gastrointestinal health. A healthier ECS can result in a healthier gut!

What Are the Different Types of CBD?

CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in the hemp and marijuana plants. However, CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid -- so you don’t have to worry about getting high.

Full Spectrum

Full plant power! This type of extraction process keeps all 100+ cannabinoids intact, including <0.3% THC (not nearly enough to get you high). This form of CBD utilizes the entourage effect of all the cannabinoids working together in harmony to feed your ECS.

Isolate

Pure isolate CBD with all other plant matter, including THC, removed. We offer this product to athletes or employees under strict THC testing policies. However, if you’re someone who does not have to worry about testing policies, we highly recommend using our Full Spectrum line.

Broad Spectrum

Contains all the compounds of full spectrum, but with unnoticeable amounts of THC. Some brands market this type of product as a ‘No THC’ product, but technically it does have trace amounts of THC left in the extraction process, not nearly enough to get you high, but be cautious if you are under testing policies.
