WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 113 active cannabinoid chemicals in the hemp plant. CBD, unlike THC, does not produce euphoria or intoxication and targets specific receptors in brain cells and the body. As a result, there are both physical and mental benefits with the use of CBD products.
The Endocannabinoid System
Discovered in the 20th Century, our ECS consists of numerous cannabinoid (CBD) receptors that are endogenous to the mammalian brain, and play a pivotal role in physiological processes such as mood, memory, pain and appetite. Our two main ECS receptors, CBl and CB2 can be found within our brain, nervous system, as well as peripheral organs and tissues.

Frequently Asked Questions
CBD (or cannabidiol) is one of over 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than it is in marijuana. And because it’s non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded to possess incredible health potential.
NO. They will not get you high. CBD is non-psychoactive and our products contain zero THC, guaranteed.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
Our bodies were built for cannabinoids. We have an entire system designed to receive cannabidol for the purpose of regulating the bodies internal system.
CBD is not a medication to “treat” or “cure” a specific ailment or disease. It is however the very thing that straightens out the diversion of healthy function and rights the neurological and immunological pathways.
Getting your endocannabinoid system balanced and healthy through regular use of CBD can go a long way in giving your body what it needs to repair itself.
It depends on the testing standards of the lab administering your drug test. Most companies only search for the cannabinoid THC, which is the main psychoactive component of the marijuana plant. While most CBD products are THC free, there are some testing facilities that check for a spectrum of cannabinoids and could trigger a positive drug test. By law, you are allowed to ask the facility what cannabinoids they test for. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can call and ask anonymously. We suggest contacting the testing facility if there is any concern.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide. Read more by clicking here.
