CBD interfaces with your body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS coordinates systems in the
body like hunger, emotions, pain, recall, parts of the nervous system, etc. Endocannabinoids and
their receptors are all over the body, including connective tissue, organs, brain, glands, and
immune cells. The cannabinoid system performs different tasks depending on the tissue, but in all cases,
homeostasis is the desired outcome.
Homeostasis refers to a system being in a stable or balanced state. It is the body's mechanism to maintain a
steady internal environment, which it does by always monitoring and adjusting based on current conditions.
For example, when we become stressed, our adrenal glands release cortisol. This is commonly known
as the "fight or flight" hormone, which lets us react quickly in a dangerous situation.
Is CBD Safe?
CBD is considered "generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile" in a 2018 World Health
Organization report. Getting your CBD from a safe, trusted company with high quality controls is
very important; many CBD companies do not have adequate quality control and
don't know where their product is sourced.
We have one of the best quality control systems in the industry.
CBD versus THC
CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, which is also in the cannabis plant) are different.
Sometimes, the two are confused.
CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause the euphoric side
effects THC is known for. This means CBD products can be used without concern that THC would
cause a reaction.
CBD and THC both bind to the CB-2 receptor while interfacing with the CB-1 receptors differently.
THC's molecular composition allows it to bond directly with CB-1 receptors. When this bond is formed,
the reaction creates brain signals that trigger psychoactive effects of
CBD does not bond directly with CB-1 receptors
according to research.
Its presence can invalidate the bond between THC and the CB-1 receptors, canceling
side effects caused by THC.
Are hemp & marijuana the same?
No, they are different. Both plants are in the same Cannabis plant family, but hemp is completely different from
marijuana in how it works, how it's grown, and how it's used.
Will CBD get me "high"?
No. CBD does not have euphoric side effects.
