CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is one of the most studied cannabinoids, second only to THC. Unlike THC, CBD is largely non-psychoactive and is not intoxicating. CBD promotes healthy sleep and soothes occasional sleeplessness, helps support normal cartilage and joint function, relieves occasional nausea, promoting relaxation, and more. We recommend consulting scientific publications, government resources, and your doctor for more information on CBD’s benefits.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a recently discovered group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. The endocannabinoid receptors that make up the ECS are located in our Central Nervous System (CNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), and Immune System. Our CNS is our brain and spinal cord, while the PNS acts as a communication network linking our CNS to the rest of our body.
The heaviest concentration of cannabinoid receptors is in our brain, but there’s no shortage throughout our organs, tissues, glands, and more. The saturation of the ECS receptors throughout our body is part of why CBD has so many uses and is so effective.
CBD is a naturally occurring molecule within the trichomes (tiny hair-like structures) on the epidermis of hemp and cannabis and was the first cannabinoid to be discovered (circa 1940). We’ve discovered that CBD has a plethora of benefits such as promoting healthy sleep and soothing occasional sleeplessness, relieving occasional aches and pains following exercise, relieving occasional nausea, promoting relaxation, relieving stress and frustration, and improving mood.
CBD is considered safe with little to no side effects; in hemp’s multi-thousand-year history, there has never been a recorded fatality. It has been shown to be non-toxic even at extreme doses, however, you should consult your doctor if you plan on taking more than 300mg in a 24 hour period. CBD is an organic product and a safer natural alternative to synthetic options.
Cannabidiol exists in two states, CBD and CBD-a, both of which are being studied to discover exactly how they differ in their effect on the body. CBD-a, is what grows directly on hemp and cannabis. When CBD-a is heated to 248°F, it loses its acid chain in a process called decarboxylation, also referred to as “activation”, and becomes CBD. CBD has been well studied and has a more pronounced effect than CBD-a, which does not stimulate the CB receptors with the same efficacy as CBD. All our products go through a decarboxylation process. CBD-a shows potential for different types of treatment, but its effects haven’t been researched as extensively.
Cannabinoids are organic molecules that are naturally produced by hemp and cannabis and act within our body’s ECS. There are over 100 known cannabinoids that each have their own effect in the body.
Cannabinoids activate two receptors: CB1 and CB2. CB1 is primarily located in the brain, while CB2 is predominantly found in the rest of the body. CBD is largely non-psychoactive because it doesn’t activate the CB1 receptor, it works on the CB2 receptors instead. [More information on receptor activation and their effects on the body should be researched through reliable sources. We cannot provide health claims.] Each of the 100+ cannabinoids interact with receptors differently, producing different results. Research has also shown that when cannabinoids are used together, the benefits multiply, producing what is called the “entourage effect.”
