What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. When stripped of THC, the hemp plant offers over 400 compounds to support balance in the body.* These remaining phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and lipids can be combined into a THC-Free Broad Spectrum formula.
Will CBD get me high?
No. THC is the only compound in hemp that has psychoactive effects. All of our products are 100% THC-Free and lab tested for quality assurance. How can CBD support me? CBD supports your body’s Natural Healing Network, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).* The ECS is responsible for thousands of regulatory tasks in the nervous system, digestive system, endocrine system, immune system and lymphatic system. Over time chronic stressors, dietary habits and lifestyle choices can weaken your ECS, which throws the body into disarray.* Science is just beginning to understand that many health issues might be connected to a malfunctioning ECS. By supporting your ECS you could help restore your body’s balance naturally.*
What is an Endocannabinoid?
Did you know your body already produces cannabinoids? These endocannabinoids are the fuel that your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) uses to balance your brain and body. A healthy ECS produces cannabinoids to correct imbalances and perform critical regulatory functions. Over time, the wear and tear of living can lead to the overproduction of acid that eats your endocannabinoids. This can lead to Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency, a condition recognized by the American Medical Association, and one suspected by emerging research to be linked to several health conditions.*
What is my Endocannabinoid System, and what is its function?
Your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) has one job: to balance imbalances using the cannabinoids it manufactures. Stress inside and outside of your body requires regulation and adjustment. This is the evolutionary function of your ECS. CBD could support your ECS by reducing the production of acids that eat your body’s natural cannabinoids.* A healthy ECS could target your body’s imbalances and guide them back into harmony.
Your ECS is critical in the regulation of the following areas*:
- Mood Decline*
- Sleep Regulation*
- Inflammatory Support*
- Aches and Pains*
- Brain protection*
- Joint Support*
- Locomotive Issues*
- Optimal Health*
Are there any side effects?
CBD has an extremely low side effect profile. Some people report slight drowsiness and in some rare cases an upset stomach, but this is usually only experienced when taking very high doses. CBD is a passive compound that works in sync with your body’s Endocannabinoid System.* CBD is a lipid, so if you have fat sensitivity or conditions like pancreatitis, be sure you consult with a licensed medical official before starting. If you are on any medications, especially those for seizure conditions, please consult with your doctor before adding CBD into your self-care regimen.*
How will I know if CBD is right for me?
CBD can be an important self-care tool for anyone.* Give it a test run, and see if it improves your quality of life. We suggest you start with the lowest dose possible 2-4 times a day, and adjust the milligram content and/or delivery method as needed.* Try it steadily for a week. If no noticeable changes occur, increase the strength or number of doses gradually.* Everyone has a different metabolism, so you’ll need to do some experimentation to find your balanced dose.* Be patient and stay consistent, taking it daily.* It is important to understand that CBD is not a cure-all. What it might do, while amazing, can be increased by implementing healthy and simple lifestyle hacks we go to great lengths to cover in our blog and across our social media accounts.
