CBD & Me
Before introducing you to what CBD is it’s important to learn why it matters
All humans have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). Our ECS is a series of receptors all throughout our bodies. Theses receptors influence the regulation of many important body and brain processes.
Our ECS helps regulate our:
- Perception of Pain
- Emotional State
When the ECS is out of balance, you’re not at your best. Our bodies are actively working to maintain homeostasis, where we are the most balanced and in our optimal state. If homeostasis is not maintained, you may experience nerve pain, aching joints, muscle soreness, mood swings, sleep disruption and more.
CBD can support and enhance the function of the ECS. CBD helps to bring balance and provide an overall sense of wellness in your mind and body. Millions of people choose to make CBD part of their daily wellness routine.
CBD is a type of compound, naturally found in plants, called a cannabinoids. It is known to be non-intoxicating and non-addictive. When CBD is introduced to your body, often through oils, topical creams, or edible products it interacts with your ECS system through two types of receptors, CB1 and CB2.
Just as supporting your body with vegetables, fruits, and plants contributes to your wellness taking CBD supports a healthy ECS by enhancing its ability to regulate appetite, stress, sleep, and other processes important to your wellbeing.
Hemp has an abundance of cannabinoids, but our bodies make cannabinoids too. When we do activities that support our wellbeing like dancing, practicing yoga, or running we release our own cannabinoids that interact with our ECS bringing us closer to a balanced mind and body. A daily regimen of CBD is an important part to achieving the balance we crave.
