CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a critical phytocannabinoid found in hemp and known for supporting body and mind in many ways.

CBD specifically comes from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. (Not to be confused with oil that comes from hemp seeds, which contain no cannabinoids.)

Why It Works: The human body has a vast network of receptors, the endocannabinoid system, that helps us maintain overall wellness and helps support many of our body’s physical processes. CBD fits into the receptors, helping the body complete its efforts to keep us in good health.

Endocannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body on the surface of cells in the brain, organs, tissues, and glands. These receptors are embedded in cell membranes and produce varying reactions when stimulated by cannabinoids. 

Cannabinoids come from two distinct places — the body, which produces naturally occurring endocannabinoids, and the cannabis plant, which produces phytocannabinoids. Without distorting the science too much, you could say that human beings are “hard-wired” for cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system runs deep and touches all of the major systems of the body. That is why the cannabis plant can do so many things for us, from altering and regulating moods to stimulating appetites and reducing pain.

Even though cannabidiol has no toxicity for humans—meaning, it doesn’t make you intoxicated (i.e. high)— it is highly reactive with the endocannabinoid system.  To put things as simply as possible, CBD makes things happen. When it binds to the endocannabinoid system’s receptors, it stimulates all kinds of changes in the body.  Most of those changes are incredibly beneficial, and researchers keep uncovering real and potential medical uses for them.


CBD has a multitude of healing and optimization benefits that allow your neurotransmitters to function more effectively.  This section will review a number of reasons why CBD is able to deliver so many life changing benefits.

  • Reducing Anxiety - CBD can improve many commonly reported anxiety-disorder symptoms, including acute stress and anxiety.  CBD is responsible for managing the endocrine system in the body which is a network of chemicals responsible for releasing hormones that directly contribute to stress and anxiety levels.

  • Reducing Inflammation - In 2011, scientists from the University of Naples, Italy, explored CBD for treatment of inflammation. The researchers determined that CBD was able to counteract the inflammatory environment. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory so therefore it delivers an aid to problem areas of concern because the chemicals in CBD can positively affect the stimuli in the brain and can directly impact the transmitters that are emitting pain signals.

  • Relief with Nausea - CBD reduces nausea by interacting with serotonin receptors. CBD helps reduce food sensitivities; it can do this by reducing the heart rate and the anxiety incurred when eating is involved. Another major plus for many patients is the fact that you can consume CBD Oil and enjoy its numerous benefits, without the fear of becoming high. CBD Oil has been linked to relieving nausea associated with many different reasons including; anxiety or depression, extreme medical conditions, motion sickness and more.

  • Epileptic Seizures - Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that impairs the brain’s ability to deliver normal functioning motor control. CBD is responsible for aiding the synapses or gaps between neurotransmitters; which alleviates the random firing in the brain, which occurs with epilepsy and schizophrenia. It is shown to significantly reduce seizures in treatment-resistant epilepsy, according to new research that included double-blind randomized controlled trials of patients.

  • Treatment for Depression - For anyone who suffers from depression or  has a loved one who has bouts of depression symptoms, millions of people will agree that this disorder is one of the most debilitating conditions people can face. Luckily, each year, more people who are diagnosed with some form of this disease are discovering that CBD Oil is a natural option for alleviating some of their symptoms. To be clear, CBD cannot cure depression. Rather, studies show that CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, a collection of cell receptors and the corresponding molecules (agonists) in the human body, which helps to regulate essential human functions such as sleep, appetite, mood, pain, and pleasure among other things.

  • Fighting Cancer - Some studies have investigated the role of CBD in preventing cancer cell growth, but research is still in its early stages. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) says that CBD may help alleviate cancer symptoms and cancer treatment side effects. The action of CBD that’s promising for cancer treatment is its ability to moderate inflammation and change how cells reproduce. CBD has the effect of reducing the ability of some types of tumor cells to reproduce.

  • Sleep - Cannabidiol is amazing for help with sleep due to its calming effects in higher doses.  It's the real life version of taking a "chill pill" or in this case an oil drop or vape.  Cannabis has been used for centuries to treat nerves and anxiety, as well as other mood problems.  CBD has the ability to reduce anxiety, which can be helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. CBD may increase overall sleep amounts, and improve insomnia, according to research. CBD has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain.



CBD Content
First off you should know that the CBD content differs from product to product. CBD cannot harm you, but it is good to know how much of it you actually consume when you use a CBD product.

Also, CBD products are measured in how much Hemp Oil they contain, as well as the specific CBD content. Therefore to be sure, when looking to find out how much CBD a product contains, you look at CBD content and not Hemp Oil content. It is displayed in either MG or %. 

Hemp Oil Content
As stated above, CBD products are measured in CBD content as well as Hemp Oil content. The difference is that the CBD is contained within the Hemp Oil, so the CBD content will always be lower than the Hemp Oil content. Hemp Oil on its own is also beneficial; when buying a product for the CBD that it contains, it makes sense to look at how much CBD it contains. For example: buying Hemp Oil with too low of a concentration of CBD would be similar to buying Flax Oil with a low concentration of Omega 3 fatty acid.

Calculating the CBD Content
For example, a bottle of CBD Hemp Oil that contains 10ml (equals 10g) of oil that has 6% CBD.
        10ml equals 10g. 10g equals 10,000mg.
        6% of 10,000mg is 600mg pure CBD in the bottle.

CBD Concentration
Content and concentration are equally important, and go hand in hand as far as the strength and quality of the product is concerned. While content has to do with how much CBD is in a product, concentration has to do with the strength of the content. The specific concentration chosen should depend on the product type and the amount of CBD you want to administer. Recommended dosages for first time users vary from 1-2mg daily. Depending on your particular physical setup (weight, metabolism, body type, etc.), you may decide to begin with 3mg. You can gradually increase the amount as your body adjusts to it.

There are no psychoactive or any other dangerous contents in our products, so you can safely increase the level until you find your ideal dosage. The best method for a beginner would be to begin with 1-3mg daily for a week, then double the dose the following week, and continue to gradually increase the dose until you  feel that you are taking the correct dosage.
