Cannabidiol - CBD - is a non-psychoactive chemical compound – meaning it won't alter a person's mental state – that can come from two different cannabis plants: The hemp plant (with 0% THC present) or marijuana plant (where there's psychoactive THC).
All mammals have what is called an endocannabinoid system.This system is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites found mainly in the brain, central nervous system and immune system.
While the human body is capable of making its own cannabinoids, it needs help from our diets, like all things the body produces.
However, cannabinoids are not a part of the average diet, so, most people are doing very little to support their endocannabinoid system. This is not good, as the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance.
Pain, mood, appetite, sleep, immune response and hormone balance are affected by the endocannabinoid system. Why? The simple answer is that everything we think, feel and do is coordinated by our neurotransmitters. When they fire, they pass along the message about what to do to the next neuron and that, in turn, gets passed along again and again.The endocannabinoid system is activated as soon as one of the neurotransmitters is received at that first neuron. Once it is received, cannabinoids, the chemical “messengers” of the endocannabinoid system, travel back to the original brain cell that initially released that neurotransmitter and bind to its cannabinoid receptors. As a result, these receptors have a significant influence over your brain cells and their release of neurotransmitters.
Most workplace drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens.
Hemp products sold in grocery and health food stores are most often created using hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.
Our hemp comes from the United States where it adheres to the highest quality standards.
No. Our products are all made with high-CBD and 0%-THC hemp oil. CBD itself is non-psychoactive.
Because CBD Oil is categorized as a dietary supplement in the United States, we comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any specific medical benefits of CBD oil.
