CBD BEGINNERS GUIDE

CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is one of more than 120 compounds called cannabinoids. THC and CBD are both cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant but unlike cannabinoids — such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — CBD does not produce a euphoric "high" or psychoactive effect. CBD is known for supporting the body and mind in many ways and the list is every expanding.  Some of the most common symptoms and conditions are:
  • Inflammation 

  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders

  • PTSD and anxiety

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Opioid withdrawal

  • Relaxation

CBD should not be confused with hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil does not contain cannabinoids or terpenes. CBD comes from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant which means it contains a higher concentration of cannabinoids and the robust terpene profile of whole plant cannabis enhances the therapeutic benefits of CBD.
How does CBD work?
The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids. This network of receptors is present throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.11 CBD cannabinoids fit into these receptors to support and maintain optimal health.*
