What Is CBD?

 

HEMP and CANNABIS both come from the same plant Cannabis Sativa L. 

 

Before we get into what CBD is, it’s important for you to understand the plant we are talking about. Specifically what we call HEMP and what we call CANNABIS. 

 

It’s important to note that the CBD molecule from Hemp is the same as the CBD molecule from Cannabis. Many still confuse the fact that these plants are sisters. Hemp contains very low amounts of THC. Many CBD studies have shown an array of medical benefits. 

 

The reason CBD and other hemp-derived compounds works well for so many conditions, is the endocannabinoid system, a central component of the health and healing of every human and almost every animal. The Endocannabinoid system is a central regulatory system that affects a wide range of biological processes like our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs. CBD helps bring your entire body back into balance, not just one single area like most supplements. 

 

How Does CBD Work?

 

CBD works as the switch that turns on the regulatory system in the body called the endocannabinoid system. 

 

Did you know that your body produces its own cannabinoids similar to CBD and THC? These endogenous cannabinoids are a part of a system that acts as the “master control” of the body. 

 

That same system is designed to work with CBD! The endogenous cannabinoid system, or endocannabinoid system (ECS), is a recently discovered system of naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites throughout your entire body! 

 

This system in the brain is made up of endocannabinoids and their receptor sites. Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring substances in the brain that activate the same receptor sites as cannabinoids from cannabis. Research has proven the endocannabinoid system is involved in a number of physiological processes that can include appetite, pain, mood, and memory. 

 

Can I get high off of CBD?

 

The good news is no, you do not get high with CBD. 

 

THC has a different effect than CBD on your body because CBD is not psychoactive. So, you will not experience altered perceptions from CBD, as you would from THC.

 

Will CBD Show Up On My Drug Test? Does your oil contain THC?

 

Our products do not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will not cause a failed drug test. 

 

Unlike THC, CBD does not show up positive on standard drug tests for marijuana. CBD is not on any federal drug schedules, nor a watch list. Our CBD is thoroughly tested to make sure we follow FDA regulations. 

 

We make sure that any traces of THC is taken out of the final product. The final product is also tested to make sure our efforts were successful.

 

Is CBD addictive?

CBD is completely safe and non-addictive.

What is the recommended dosage?

We put together an infographic that’ll make it easy to know how much of our CBD to take and the dosage of CBD. 

Are there drug interactions I should know about?

CBD is exceptionally safe, but if you do take blood thinners, opiates, and/or anti-epileptic medication, there’s a chance of an adverse effect if you take a high dose of CBD (over 30mg per day). 

CBD potentiates prescription pain meds, so if you use the medication mentioned above, you would only need 1/2 of your regular dose to feel the same results if you take CBD too. 

We highly recommend consulting with your physician first. 

Which product is best for cancer?

Firstly, we can not make any claims about our product and cancer or any disease. 

That being said, studies have shown amazing effects with CBD. We strongly advise working with a professional that intimately understands your unique situation, your biology, lifestyle, genetics, and of course CBD. 

That will allow them to direct you to the best course of action. What I can say is that our product supports an important biological system in your body. That system when fully active has shown to activate the body’s ability to do what it does best, heal itself.
