What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound extracted from the hemp plant, cannabis sativa. CBD is a non-psychoactive, non-intoxicating phytocannibinoid that is extracted in oil form and is used for topical purposes, added to edibles, or taken directly for a variety of therapeutic benefits.
What is Hemp?
Hemp plants are a cannabis strain which produce very low levels of tetrahydrocannabiniol (THC), the psychoactive compound commonly associated with the “high” from marijuana, another strain of cannabis. Hemp and Marijuana are not the same plant but do come from the same plant family.
Hemp plants are desireable for the low levels of THC and high concentrations of CBD, the compound used for creating holistic health products.
How does CBD work?
The body has a system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that regulates everything from mood, appetite, sleep, and metabolic functions. The body makes its own cannabinoids and contains cannabinoid receptors throughout the body. Cannabinoids react with these receptors to bring balance and help maintain homeostasis throughout the body.
CBD is a phytocannabinoid (plant cannabinoid) and is similar enough in structure that it can react with these receptors in the body to produce the same regulatory effects.
What are the benefits?
CBD is a fairly new supplement and its popularity is rapidly rising due to the continued research and discovery of numerous medical benefits being found. Some benefits associated with CBD include, but are not limited to:
- high in antioxidants
- ease of anxiety and depression
- pain and inflammation relief
We encourage you to do your own research and talk to your healthcare professional to learn more about CBD and what is most beneficial for you.
Will I get high?
No, all of the products featured in our boxes are carefully chosen from trusted manufacturers that derive their high quality CBD solely from Hemp plants. Because they contain little to no traces of THC, you cannot get high off any of the products.
Is it safe?
Yes, according to the U.S National Library of Medicines, CBD is non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating and will not affect physiological or psychological functions. We only choose to work with trusted manufacturers that have the proper licensing and test results and use high quality CBD extracted from Hemp plants only so it is completely safe.
