Some people take CBD because they need support for specific reasons while others want to enhance their overall well-being. To understand the benefits of CBD, you need to understand what it does in the body.
CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. Cannabinoids work with a series of receptors in your body known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is involved in a lot of important jobs. Basically, the ECS helps keep your body in homeostasis.
What is Homeostasis?
Homeostasis is a biological balance in your body’s natural rhythms. 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 the work it does.
Your body makes its own cannabinoids. These are called endocannabinoids. If you’ve ever experienced a runner’s high, or the thrill of singing along to your favorite song, you’ve experienced the work of endocannabinoids. When plants make this type of compound, they’re called phytocannabinoids. CBD is one of over a hundred types of phytocannabinoids found in hemp plants. It’s non-intoxicating, which means it does not produce the high associated with marijuana.
Where Does Our CBD Come From?
Our CBD comes from hemp grown on American farms that use the highest standards of cultivation. We only source our raw ingredients from facilities that use the most advanced hemp extraction methods. We perform internal tests on these raw materials for metals, pesticides, and microbials. We then formulate our award-winning line of CBD products and send them to an external lab for evaluation. We make the resulting lab sheet available to all consumers through a simple scan of the QR code on our packaging.
