What Is CBD?

What is CBD (Cannabidiol) and why should I consider it?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in industrial hemp plants. CBD is also naturally occurring in humans and in some other plants. CBD receptors in the our body connect to the Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS) to help promote a sense of well being. The ECS is being studied, but researchers agree that it plays an important role helping keep your body in homeostasis – a biological balance in your body’s natural rhythms. These roles include regulating your anti-inflammatory response, the immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, and sleep schedule. Sometimes it’s described as equilibrium in your system. Homeostasis has a big impact on your overall well-being. New research is always emerging exploring the link between homeostasis, and physical, mental, and even emotional health. People take CBD because they want to support their ECS, and all of the important work it does in your body.

The many potential benefits of CBD are now being researched and consumers report strong satisfaction from using these products. It’s important to know that CBD from industrial hemp is not intoxicating, so you can add CBD to your every day routine without getting a feeling of being high. Industrial hemp, approved by the U.S. Farm Bill, is grown legally and can contain no more than 0.3% THC–an extremely small amount that will not make you feel high. These plants are grown to have high concentrations of CBD.

As you add CBD to your regimen, we recommend you “start low and go slow”. That means experimenting with a small amount initially and increasing until you know what works best for you. Our liquid drops work fastest as they are absorbed in your mouth quickly. The liquid drops will give you a faster response than our capsules or soft gels, which travel through your digestive system for absorption. However, the capsules and soft gels may provide a longer lasting benefit. Our topical skin care products combine great skin care ingredients and our CBD.
