What is CBD? (Cannabidiol)2021-02-05T19:38:51-08:00

CBd, or Cannabidiol, is a natural, non-intoxicating compound extracted from the resinous cannabis and hemp plant, a plant with a rich history as medicine going back thousands of years.

Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substanceCBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.

CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.

Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THCCBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high. The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.

Delivering little to no psychoactive effects, CBD has risen in popularity among those who prefer a more mellow, clear-headed relief experience.

CBD oils, gummies, and other products are continuing to grow in popularity as ways to manage anxiety, stress, pain, and other symptoms.

What is CBD Oil?2020-09-15T21:09:23-07:00

CBD oil is an umbrella term for many different products. It’s most commonly found as a liquid extract in bottles with a dropper built into the lid—also called tinctures. CBD oil can be dropped under the tongue for fast absorption or mixed directly into food or drinks.

CBD oil may also come in a gelcap that you swallow like a supplement, with effects that take a bit longer to kick in. CBD oils are commonly used for assisting a wide variety of symptoms including pain, anxiety, stress, and sleeplessness.

What is the Endocannabinoid System? (ECS)2020-09-15T12:19:34-07:00

Your Endocannabinoid System, or ECS handles many important functions throughout your body and plays a huge role in stress, mood, recovery, and overall wellness.

The endocannabinoid system leads the charge for every physiological system in the human body. And its role is to keep us balanced and healthy.

A well functioning endocannabinoid system keeps us in good health. Think of it as a way to keep us in a state of balance.

How does CBD work in the Brain and Body?2020-09-15T21:09:39-07:00

Each of our bodies has a set of receptors that interacts with cannabis compounds called cannabinoids, like CBD. These receptors, found throughout the body, comprise the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex signaling system that ensures our bodies maintain homeostasis.

Put another way, the endocannabinoid system keeps us in balance by directing the communication traffic in our bodies. Cannabinoids such as CBD interact with this system, mimicking natural compounds (called endocannabinoids) produced by the body.

In the human body, CBD influences cannabinoid receptor activity and encourages the production of the body’s natural endocannabinoids. Interestingly, CBD also affects activity beyond the endocannabinoid system and can also interact with opioid, dopamine, and serotonin receptors.

The ability of CBD to interact with so many different systems throughout the body suggests it has the potential to open new frontiers in psychiatry and medicine.

What are Cannibinoids?2020-09-15T12:20:35-07:00

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. Of over 480 different compounds present in the plant, only around 66 are termed cannabinoids.

The most well known among these compounds is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), which is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is another important component, which makes up about 40% of the plant resin extract.

Does CBD Get Me High?2020-09-24T20:30:38-07:00

No! Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high and is non-psychoactive.

CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same receptors as THC.

These CB1 receptors are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-altering effects of THC.

Is CBD Legal in the United States?2020-09-15T12:23:01-07:00

Yes! Under the revised Farm Bill of 2018, Industrial Hemp is now legal across 50 states.

The FDA said some hemp ingredients, such as hulled hemp seeds, hemp seed protein, and hemp seed oil, are safe in food and won’t require additional approvals.

What’s the Right Dose for CBD?2020-10-28T08:52:02-07:00

There is no ideal, one-size-fits-all dose with CBD.

Your perfect CBD dose depends on a few different factors, including your individual biology, the delivery method, and the specific nature of your symptoms.

Recommended Starting Dose:

  • For every 1 lb of body weight per day, start slowly with 1/3 mg to 1/2 mg.

For Example:

  • 100 lbs = 33 mgs to 50 mgs per day
  • 150 lbs = 50 mgs to 75 mgs per day
  • 200 lbs = 66 mgs to 100 mgs per day

Recommended For Serious Symptoms:

For more serious symptoms, keep in mind that most CBD Scientific Studies have tested patients using a minimum of 200 mg of CBD per day.

Does CBD Go Bad?2020-09-24T20:29:34-07:00

We recommend using our drops products within 2 years of the manufacture date. They won’t “go bad” but they may lose their potency over time.

Keeping our drops upright in a cool, dry place is another step to ensure their longevity.
