About CBD


Cannabidiol  (CBD) is a key component of Cannabis sativa L. that accounts for many of the plant’s natural health benefits. It is the second most prominent phytocannabinoid in the Cannabis sativa L. plant. CBD is a pleiotropic component meaning it produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. CBD acts through various receptor-independent channels, and by binding with a number of non-cannabinoid receptors and ion channels, to exert its therapeutic effects.

Phytocannabinoids are plant derived compounds that are capable of either directly interacting with cannabinoid receptors, sharing chemical similarities with cannabinoids that allow them to interact with components of the endocannabinoid system, or both.

The Endocannabinoid System

How it Works

The ECS is a complex signaling network within the bodies of all mammals that utilizes different receptors, regulatory enzymes, and specialized components such as cannabinoids, to control, influence, and regulate various bodily processes. The body produces its own cannabinoids called endogenous cannabinoids or endocannabinoids. The first known endocannabinoid discovered is Anandamide, which is named after the Sanskrit word ananda meaning “bliss or supreme joy”. It was discovered after cloning an ECS receptor site, CB1, which by existing indicated that there was a substance within our bodies that attached to that receptor site. A few years later the cloning of another receptor site, CB2, led to the discovery of 2-AG (2-arachidonoyl-glycerol), another endocannabinoid. The cannabinoid receptor sites are located on the cell surfaces throughout the human body. CB1 receptors are concentrated in the central nervous system and the brain. CB2 receptors are concentrated in the peripheral organs and the immune system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do your products contain THC?

All of our products are third-party lab tested and contain the legal limit of less than 0.3% THC. Our CBD products are non-psychoactive and will not leave you feeling “high.”

What dosage should I start at?

Everyone’s reaction to CBD is different. We recommend starting with a low dose and slowly working your way up to the results you are after. It can take a few weeks of consistently using CBD for your body’s receptors to turn on and fully recognize it. For best results, incorporate CBD into your daily routine.

What is the difference between full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate?

Full Spectrum CBD contains all naturally occurring compounds of the hemp plant. These compounds include cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils.

In Broad Spectrum CBD the THC is completely removed but it still contains a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils.

Isolate is known as the purest form of CBD. With CBD isolate, all other naturally-occurring plant compounds are removed.

Why do you use MCT oil?

Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil is a fatty acid derived from coconut oil. Pairing MCT oil with CBD helps with absorption and allows your body to start processing CBD right away.
