What is CBD ?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a remarkable natural compound found in the cannabis plant.
CBD belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids, technically phyto-cannabinoids. The cannabis plant contains more than 100 different cannabinoids, however CBD and THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) are present in a much greater volume, and have the most health benefits. Our body actually has receptors for cannabinoids.
CBD (unlike THC) is not psychoactive. This attribute has proven to be a Godsend for people who want the medicinal benefits of cannabinoids, but don’t want to feel the sometimes disorienting side effects of THC. Plus CBD has additional health benefits that THC does not have.
According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of science’s newest and most exciting discoveries. The ECS regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses and even cognitive function. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally—no small feat!
Can these products be shipped to all 50 states?
Yes. We ship CBD (hemp extracts) to all 50 States. The United States Farm Bill of 2014 classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis. Because our products contain less than 0.3% THC, we are allowed by U.S. Federal law to conveniently ship to your doorstep.
Which products or dosing are best for my specific condition?
CBD (Cannabidiol) products are available in varying concentrations for you to choose from. Since all CBD products are extracted from industrial hemp plants it is impossible to say that one may be "better" than another. Each of us have a different metabolism so a bit of trial and error may be required for you to determine your personal "sweet spot".
How soon will I feel results?
CBD works by accumulation and saturation into the system, where it is stored in fat cells and acts on specific cannabinoid receptors within the brain and body. By doing this, it can help bring individual systems that are "out of balance" so to speak back to homeostasis. Response times are just as unique as the people taking them. We all have different genetic and biochemical makeups, and individual health issues that can take days or sometimes months to address. The bottom line is you have to be patient and consistent, and know that dietary supplements like hemp extracts are crafted to work with the body naturally, supporting it to better function on its own. The results come by way of steady improvement, making health more sustainable to reach a level of life-enhancing natural wellness.
What is the Difference between Hemp Seed oil and Hemp Extracts (CBD) ?
Like its name implies, hemp seed oil is refined from the seeds of the plant and contains virtually no CBD or other cannabinoids. It does contain an excellent 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which can promote cardiovascular health. Hemp seed oil is available from any good grocer.
