WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a chemical compound which occurs naturally in the hemp plant. It has been studied and shown to have incredible medicinal benefits for hundreds of known ailments, both physical and mental. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, which allows for use and relief anytime, without side effects or impairment. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at many academic and independent research centers in the United States and worldwide.
We suggest you find your own research on CBD and cannabinoids from a trusted source to determine if a CBD hemp oil supplement is right for you.

​HOW DOES IT HELP?

CBD impacts our biochemical communication system, the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience.. There is extensive scientific and clinical research, including research by the US government, which exposes CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including:​​ (Click any link to go to Project CBD for specific information.)

WHAT KIND OF TEST DO YOU RUN ON YOUR PRODUCTS?
Every batch goes through rigorous testing in our in-house laboratory. When the batch passes, it receives a Certificate of Analysis and a Certificate of Quality Assurance that we make available to our customers. We also use third-party labs on a monthly basis to verify and confirm the Certificates. And here’s the great news: to date, not one batch has failed to meet our unprecedented testing standards!

WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID system (ECS)?
The endocannabinoid system is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids that are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the mammalian brain and body. CBD is one of the primary cannabinoids found in hemp. There are two cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2 that are located on cells throughout the body.


WHAT ARE CB1 AND CB2 RECEPTORS?
CB1 receptors are primarily located on nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord and central nervous system. They are very abundant in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, and hippocampus. The CB1 receptors have been found to play a role in memory processing, motor regulation, pain sensation, mood, and sleep. CB2 receptors are primarily found on cells in the immune system and its associated structures. When activated, they stimulate a response that fights inflammation, which can reduce pain and minimize damage to tissues.
