CBD primarily interacts with your body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS regulates processes in the
body such as appetite, pain, mood, memory, peripheral nervous system, and more. 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
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.
Is CBD Safe?
CBD is considered “generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile” according to a 2018 World Health
Organization report. Companies in the CBD industry often lack quality control and don't know their sources.
This is why getting your CBD from a trusted source with high quality control is important. We have one of the best
quality control systems in the industry.
CBD versus THC
It's important to note that while some people confuse CBD with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is also found
in the cannabis plant, the two are different. CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause the euphoric side
effects commonly associated with THC. That means you can use CBD products without having to worry about THC
causing any sort of reaction.
While CBD and THC both bind to the CB-2 receptor, they interact with the CB-1 receptors in different ways.
Because of its molecular structure, THC is able to bind directly with CB-1 receptors. When this bond is formed,
the reaction creates signals that are sent to the brain, which results in the the psychoactive effects of
"getting high." Research shows that
CBD does not bond directly with CB-1 receptors,
and its presence can even negate the bond between THC and the CB-1 receptors, effectively neutralizing
the psychoactive effects induced by THC.
Are hemp & marijuana the same?
No, while both plants are in the same Cannabis plant family, hemp is completely different from
marijuana in its function, cultivation, and application.
Will CBD get me "high"?
No, CBD will not get you high. CBD is a cannabinoid that does NOT have euphoric side effects.
