The Endocannabinoid System
Our bodies were built for CBDs! We have an entire system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that is designed to receive CBDs for the purposes of regulating all of the body’s internal systems and functions via a complex network of receptors located in the brain and throughout the body’s central nervous system. The ECS specifically regulates homeostasis, the immune and inflammatory responses, appetite, metabolism, mood, sleep, energy, pain sensation, memory, and digestive and neurological functions.
Is CBD Oil A Drug?
No. CBD is different than THC. THC is the psychoactive agent in marijuana that can make you “high.” CBD has no psychoactive effects, will not show up as a positive drug screen, and does not require special certification to purchase. While both THC and CBD come from the hemp plant, THC is produced in the flower of the plant, while CBD is harvested from the stalk. Our CBD products
contain no discernible traces of THC.
What Can CBD Oil Treat?
Because CBD acts on the ECS, it can treat a wide range of conditions. There have been literally thousands of scientific studies conducted on the effectiveness of CBD (see links below). These studies indicate that CBD may be beneficial for the following disorders and conditions:
- Loss of Appetite
- Crohn’s Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Chronic and Acute Pain
- Phantom Limb
- Insomnia/Restless Sleep
- Sleep Apnea
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Thyroid disorders
- Kidney Disease
- Liver Disease
- Muscular Dystrophy
Our CBD Products
Before we decided to carry a line of CBD products, we spent about three months researching the various brands available and the science behind their claims. Ultimately, we chose to carry a product line called Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO) because we were impressed with the quality of the product and the company’s commitment to best practices.
RSHO Products Are:
- Derived from non-GMO hemp grown by fifth generation farmers from heirloom hemp strains
- Made from hemp that is grown completely organically, free from herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers
- Extracted using a solvent-free CO2 process
- Naturally rich in phytocannabinoids, terpenes, vitamins, minerals, and omega fatty acids
