Non-Opioid Relief Through CBD!
What is CBD?
CBD is the active ingredient derived from the hemp plant. The hemp plant can sometimes be mistaken for the marijuana plant, which it is not. The two are “cousin” plants with similar properties. Both act on the cannabinoid system, which helps with regulation of sleep, digestion, inflammation, and most importantly, pain. Where the two differ is the level of THC found in each: marijuana contains a high level of THC which can lead to feelings of euphoria; whereas, hemp has very little, and therefore cannot get you “high”.
The main cannabinoid responsible for the intoxication from marijuana.
IS CBD SAFE? OR LEGAL?
CBD is extremely safe and non-addictive. No fatal overdose has ever been reported and studies show that it can provide a natural solution to potentially alleviate opioid addiction, and other addictions as well. The 2018 Farm Bill made it legal to produce and sell hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% THC.
If it’s high in THC, it can get you high. If it’s high in CBD, it can actually lessen the psychoactive effects of THC by limiting it from entering your endocannabinoid system. The small amount of naturally occurring THC in the hemp plant is part of the “Entourage Effect,” but at 0.3%, it’s not enough to cause you to feel intoxicated, but enough to balance your body.
BENEFITS OF CBD OIL
Hemp-derived CBD is best known for its reported ability to reduce inflammation and anxiety, but the list of possible health benefits grows more each day. Although there is already a tremendous amount of anecdotal information about CBD, there are thousands of studies going on at universities, major health organizations and the highest levels of the government to research the full potential health benefits. Some of the areas being researched are CBD’s potential to assist in:
THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT
The Entourage Effect’ is based on the ancient idea of utilizing the whole-plant in medicine. Hemp-derived CBD, when combined with all of the other naturally occurring compounds, has shown powerful healing properties anecdotally and in studies. The synergistic interaction of the CBD with the other compounds magnifies the health benefits resulting in the Entourage Effect.
Active compounds produced naturally in every mammal that can also be found in cannabis and other plants.
HEMP-DERIVED CBD VS. MARIJUANA-DERIVED THC
CBD and THC are the two most well known and researched cannabinoids, but there is one massive difference. CBD doesn’t get you high, while THC has psychoactive properties when taken in large doses. CBD is extracted from hemp plants which are much lower in THC than marijuana plants, so our hemp-derived CBD can more easily provide toxin-free health benefits without the risk of intoxication.

A BALANCED ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biochemical communication system found in all mammals. Discovered only very recently, the ECS is made up of a network of receptors, found through the brain and body, that bond with your endogenous cannabinoids those made by your own body - to regulate and modulate many other systems and functions.
Research has shown that the cannabinoid CBD helps regulate the ECS itself, making it more effective, and that it may directly regulate other system’s receptors in your body, potentially providing a range of great therapeutic benefits.
