How does CBD work ?
CBD works by acting on the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoid system (ECS). Endocannabinoids are compounds that naturally occur in the human body, and are similar to phytocannabinoids such as CBD. (Endo = within. Phyto= Plant). CBD mimics what is naturally going on in our body with the endocannabinoids and, when used as a supplement, gives our body a boost beyond what it can generate on its own. This ECS system's main job is to help the body adapt to outside stressors and maintain homeostasis: our body’s efforts to keep everything in our internal environment stable and optimal no matter what’s going on in the environment around us. Your body has 2 main receptors – CB1 and CB2 – that bond with the cannabinoids and our body generates enzymes that help break them down once utilized. The body activates the ECS with precision so that it impacts only what it needs to. For example, if your circadian rhythm is out of whack, it will work to regulate your sleep without altering another bodily function that is already working optimally, perhaps digestion for example.
I'm new to CBD. What do I need to look for?
The biggest thing is to do your due diligence and identify the key factors in selecting a quality CBD product. You want to find out which cannabinoid is best suited to your needs, along with deciding your preferred vehicle of consumption. It is also important to know the extraction process, whether it is third party tested, where is it sourced, and is it natural? Know the difference between broad and full spectrum products and look at the company’s reviews. A reputable company will have test results readily available. We recommend that you stay away from products sold at gas stations and convenience stores claiming to be CBD. We are always more than happy to answer any questions as we understand it can be overwhelming.
