CBD OIL: WHAT TO KNOW AND HOW TO USE IT
When I first started reading about CBD, I remember totally writing it off. CBD, marijuana, getting high…it’s all the same, right? Turns out I had a TON to learn. The rumblings began a few years ago with stories that were pretty high in the wow factor. The personal testimonies that started flying around had me pretty skeptical.
I love researching the science behind the health tools that are being talked about, and let me tell you. WOW was definitely the word that came to mind as I began researching the science, the history, and the impact it’s having on lives. Entire systems that were unknown until a few decades ago are now at the forefront of the health conversation, and it reminded me that we can never stop learning and trying to understand our body and the natural tools that are available to us.
Our family began to use it and I’ll be sharing more personal stories soon. But there was definitely a shift in our home. Even with using plant based, non-toxic products, eating a nutritious diet and always working on supporting our body, we still saw some incredible changes. The most prominent for me was resting and sleeping better for sure.
So let’s dive into some of the facts and if you haven’t checked out our EBOOK, be sure to click here to download that bad boy right now!
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol, is one of the primary natural cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant.
WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that bind the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors throughout your brain and body. There are over 113 known different cannabinoids found in hemp.
WHAT ARE CANNABINOID RECEPTORS?
Cannabinoid receptors are embedded in cell membranes all throughout your body. Researchers have
identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB-1, predominantly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. CB-2, predominantly found in the immune system and its associated structures.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
CBD primarily interacts with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) regulates processes in the body that are essential to our basic needs. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis.
Homeostasis in a general sense refers to stability or balance in a system. It is the body’s attempt to maintain a constant internal environment. Maintaining a stable internal environment requires constant monitoring and adjustments as conditions change. Here’s an example, when we become stressed our mind releases Cortisol. Cortisol can be helpful when we need to react quickly to a dangerous situation–fight or flight.

I’ve heard many stories of friends buying CBD from poorly researched websites and failing drug tests. YIKES!! You can enter your batch number on ANY of our CBD products to get the lab tests and see for yourself what’s in them!
Check out this example of results that you can see on their website. This is why you want an ISOLATE instead of a full spectrum CBD with rigorous testing!
Our CBD is derived from hemp plants grown on our farm in Colorado without the use of any pesticides.
