Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cannabidiol?

CBD is the acronym for Cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the Hemp plant. It is one of many compounds that have shown to have advantageous properties, without a psychotropic effect. While CBD is not yet FDA approved for any condition at this point and it is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, many studies have shown promising results.

How does it work?

CBD works on the regulatory system called Endocannabinoid system in the body. bodies produce cannabinoids similar to CBD and THC, naturally. Our endogenous cannabinoid system, or Endocannabinoid system (ECS), has been discovered recently as a system of naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites within our entire body! Endocannabinoids are naturally occurring in the brain that activate the same receptor sites as cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant. Endocannabinoid system is active in several physiological processes

Does Cannabidiol have Side Effects

World Health Organization (WHO) report, published in November 2017, has written:"that CBD is safe and well tolerated in humans and animals. It is not associated with any negative health effects." Experts’ in the field have stated that CBD does not induce physical dependence and is “not associated with abuse potential.” These products may cause adverse reactions in specific situations such as: allergic reaction or interaction with a medication the person is taking.

Please, consult your health care professional or physician before use, if you are pregnant, nursing, have or suspect a medical condition, or are taking any medications.

What is the Endocannabinoid System, ECS?

Discovered in the late 1990s, the Endocannabinoid System, or ECS is a biological system found in all vertebrates; mammals and other species, composed of endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors. Initially, research has suggested that these receptors were only present in the brain and nerves but more recently scientist have found that these receptors exist throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract. Endocannabinoids are endogenous neurotransmitters that are produced by our bodies. They regulate neurotransmission and allow for feedback loops. Anandamide and 2 Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) are the two primary Endocannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the central nervous system. Research {source} has now shown that Endocannabinoid system is involved in a broad range of processes including: In the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, March 19, 2018 article titled; Cannabinoid Receptors and the Endocannabinoid System: Signaling and Function in the Cenral Nervous System , the ECS is believed to have more cellular receptor sites than any other receptor system. The widespread distribution of these cannabinoid receptors shows just how important the ECS is to our overall bodily function and health.

Why is the ECS important?

According to the National Institutes of Health, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) promotes homeostasis, or dynamic biological balance, in every cell, tissue, and organ, including the brain. Our ECS is responsible for overall health and wellness when properly functioning. Specifically, both 2-AG and CBD are involved in the regulation of immune system functions, inflammation, sleep, stress response, appetite, mood, memory and pain management.
