What is CBD?
CBD is the acronym that stands for Cannabidiol. CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 100+ cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in the cannabis sativa plant. However, it makes up 40% of the plant extract. CBD is known for its beneficial applications in helping smooth out the various disadvantage’s life can sometimes hand out. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid.
How much should I take?
It depends entirely on the person and what they are taking CBD for. If you are new to CBD, we recommend starting at 25 mg CBD per day and increase every 4 to 5 days by 1/2 ml until you reach your unique "Sweet Spot."
Find YOUR sweet spot and begin your new you. Everybody is different. Once you reach your individual “sweet spot,” stay there! More is not necessarily better as you could flood your cells and reduce the wonderful benefits of CBD.
What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
To start, both hemp (male) and marijuana (female) come from the same “mother” cannabis plant, as per United States Department Of Agriculture (USDA). Cannabis sativa can yield hemp (brother) or marijuana (sister). The hemp plant does not bloom a flower like the female plant. Legal CBD is extracted from hemp, or the male Cannabis Sativa plant.
How does CBD work in the body?
CBD works with the endocannabinoid system in the body like a lock and key. The ECS helps to regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain. The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters. All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. CBD typically attaches to the CB2 receptors. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system which can be responsible for inflammation and pain.
