WHAT IS CBD? CBD is cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. More interesting than that is how CBD may support a sense of peace and wellness in human beings. Don’t worry, it’s not intoxicating, so you can add CBD to your everyday routine without experiencing a high.
We offer CBD in many forms. You may have heard people talk about CBD Oils, also known as CBD tinctures or CBD hemp oil. These oils are popular because they are absorbed in the mouth and take effect relatively quickly. However, we offer a range of products designed to plug into any lifestyle, including CBD gummies, CBD capsules, CBD softgels, CBD topicals, Hemp Flower coffee, and CBD tea.
CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is involved in a lot of important jobs. These jobs include regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, everyday stress levels, sleep schedule and more.
HOW DOES CBD WORK? CBD works by interacting with a vast set of receptors in your body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ECS is involved in many important jobs, including regulating your anxiety levels, sleep schedule, pain perception, anti-inflammatory response, immune system, mood, and more. Overall, your ECS is always working to keep your body in homeostasis, its optimal state.
WHAT DOES YOUR ENDOCANABINNOID SYSTEM DO? Our endocannabinoid system (ECS) helps keep you in homeostasis, a biological equilibrium in your body’s natural rhythms. To put it simply, your body manages an incredible number of functions in a regular, cyclical way. Most of the time, you never even have to think about them because they happen on their own. The ECS is believed to have a role in your immune system, stress response, pain response and management, sleep, healing, recovery and more. Every single one of these systems is a deeply complicated chemical process in your body. To feel your best and be your best, you need all of them functioning properly. CBD gives you a way to support your ECS, and the many functions in which it plays a part.
IS CBD LEGAL? Hemp-derived CBD is legal at the federal level. We mention ‘hemp-derived’ because you can also get CBD from marijuana, which is not currently legal at the federal level. The CBD has the same effects no matter where it comes from. Industrial hemp is described by the 2018 Farm Bill as having less than 0.3% THC, which is the compound that produces the high associated with marijuana. CBD is non-intoxicating, and will not generate a high. This is part of the reason the legality surrounding this compound is more relaxed.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN PURCHASING A CBD PRODUCT? • Sourced from hemp with the following certifications: • Hemp must meet or exceed the definition of industrial hemp via U.S. 2018 Farm Bill (Plant must have less than 0.3% THC content by dry weight.) • Certificate of origin • Certificate of analysis • Industrial hemp registrations • Pesticide-free • Advanced clean extraction process • Multi-stage third-party lab testing for potency, quality & safety • Every product batch tested for unwanted solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals • QR codes on every package that lead to lab results sheets for that specific product
