What is CBD? What is THC?
CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the two most well known and recognized compounds found in cannabis. They are known as cannabinoids, a class of active compounds that interact with the body’s native systems. There are more than 100 different cannabinoids in cannabis that scientists know about, but CBD and THC are the most abundant.
All cannabinoids, including CBD and THC, interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system, a vital signaling network that regulates many of your body’s functions and keeps them in check. They stimulate the endocannabinoid system and support its efforts by interacting with the system’s two receptors – CB1 and CB2.
How does CBD oil work?
Our bodies have a vast network of receptors, called the Endocannabinoid System. Its purpose is to help us stay balanced, even when challenged by external factors and certain lifestyle choices. CBD and other cannabinoids fit into those receptors helping us stay in good health by supporting many of the body’s physical processes
What does CBD feel like?
The most accurate answer to that question is - it depends. Meaning, it depends on what your body needs. Each body is different, so everybody will have a different response. Since hemp extract with cannabinoids works with the body’s internal Endocannabinoid System to maintain good health, the effect is personalized based on what you have going on internally. That being said, quite a few people mention a feeling of relaxation, while others note that hemp extract helps them feel focused.* The best way to find out how CBD will work for you, is to try it yourself!
Who can take cbd extract?
Studies show that hemp extract with CBD can be well-tolerated by many. Since the most common results of taking it are calm and focus; relief from exercise-induced inflammation; support for healthy sleep cycles; and relief from everyday stresses, anyone looking for balance in these areas might benefit from a cannabinoid extract with CBD and additional plant compounds.* And don’t forget about your furry friends

What are the Effects of CBD?
As touched on above, by interacting with the body’s native endocannabinoid system, CBD encourages balance in your systems to help your body runs at its best. This central regulatory network is responsible for maintaining the body’s homeostasis for a wide array of physiological functions, some of which include appetite, metabolism, sleep, mood, and immune response.
CBD is completely non-psychoactive, so unlike THC, it will NOT cause any adverse effects related to your:
