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.

How Does CBD work in the body

...

CBD's Main Benefits

Pain

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. Learn more: CBD & Pain Relief article

Inflammation

CBD helps the body process Omega 3s, which aid in resolving bodily inflammation. Learn more: CBD & Inflammation article

Mood

We use the term Mood, when we’re talking about stress and anxiety. 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. Learn more:  CBD & Mood article

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!

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.

What Are the Different Types of CBD?

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.

Does CBD have an Intoxicating effect, Like THC?

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.
