A Brief Introduction to CBD

You may be hearing more about CBD and Hemp Oil these days, but what is it? What does it do?

First and foremost, let’s separate CBD and Hemp Oil from everything else that we know about Marijuana. CBD does not contain THC (the main psychoactive ingredient of marijuana) and does not create a “high” like the feeling people get from THC-based products. CBD is THC-free (0.03% or less), so there is no “high” associated with its usage, and contains no psychoactive ingredients. This can be sold legally in stores everywhere in the United States.

Hemp Oil and CBD are not the same as Cannabis, but they are from the same family of plants.

CBD is short for Cannabidiol (can·na·bi·di·ol), and it is just one of over 113 cannabinoids found to be naturally occurring in hemp plants.  It is important to understand the human body also creates and uses cannabinoids in our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) as part of our own way of maintaining balance in our system. Plainly stated, this is a direct connection from nature to the human body!

Now that we know what CBD is technically, you can begin to understand why it is a key ingredient in our line of natural remedy products.

How does CBD work? What does it do?

CBD directly interacts with our own body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and neurotransmitters, helping the body restore balance (homeostasis). Our bodies respond positively and many of the negative health issues we experience are resolved naturally.

By taking CBD as a part of our wellness and nutritional routine we can use a powerful natural remedy to address our health concerns. Rather than taking a prescription drug with side effects and unintended consequences, we can take CBD (Hemp Oil) instead and treat the source of our problems.

It may be easier to think of it like this – CBD works to resolve problems internally, rather than treat health concerns from the outside. Pharmaceutical drugs treat symptoms; CBD treats the systems!

What can I use CBD for?

Some common health ailments that CBD / Hemp Oil can treat include the following:

Treatment for Pain (analgesic), a natural alternative to using Advil/Tylenol/Opiates. Depression and AnxietyNeurological disorders like Epilepsy and Multiple Sclerosis (MS), reducing seizures.
