First we’ll tell you a little bit about CBD and why it is such a popular nutrient.
CBD- Cannabidol and The Endocannabinoid System
There are many phytocannabinoids found in various plants. This is a special plant nutrient that interacts directly with our cannabinoid receptors in the body. This system of receptors is called the Endocannabinoid System. These receptors are found in every organ system of our body (our skin, brain, digestive tracts, etc.). Can you believe we have a bodily system that is ready and made to receive phytocannabinoids such as CBD (Cannabidol) from hemp?
CBD is similar to a compound that our bodies produce naturally called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids aren’t just found in the hemp plant, they’re also naturally occurring in nature but they are the most potent in hemp. CBD is the non-psychoactive counterpart of the plant. Hemp Plant Extract is derived from Agricultural Hemp and is legal according to the Farm Bill of 2014. By definition, hemp must have less then 0.3 percent THC (the pyschoactive component in hemp) at the time of harvest. The CBD products that you find outside of a dispensary will only contain that same low percentage of THC or no THC in it. This means you can receive the medicinal benefits of CBD without the psycho-active drug like feeling!
What does CBD do for the body?
When we consume cannabinoids like CBD, they stimulate the endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids are the keys that unlock these receptors. This system is incredibly important to our health because they can help with our immune systems, protect our brains, help us manage stress and even keep our bodies in balance (“homeostasis”).
One cool science-y thing about CBD is that it has the ability to inhibit the fatty acid FAAH molecule from breaking down anandamide, a fatty acid neurotransmitter. Anandamide is also known as the “bliss molecule”. You experience this molecule and feeling when the body undergoes prolonged stress, like after a long run. This molecule helps relieve the feeling of pain and other strong emotions associated to this stress– helping regulate the body and emotions back into balance. This could be one reason why CBD can help mediate a wide range of health issues like pain, arthritis, stress, poor sleep, insomnia, anxiety and more!
CBD Products we LOVE and Trust
There are a lot of CBD products out on the market. All of the CBD brands we offer for sale are first tested by us to verify the quality of the product. We also research the brand and check for their lab certificates before we stock them. Our CBD products range from oils, to softgels, to topicals, and even gummies! Here are a few that we love:
Buddha Teas with CBD- They have many different flavors. We love the CBD with Matcha and the CBD with Chamomile. The Matcha blend is a great mood booster. The Chamomile Blend is great to drink before bed time; it’s the new sleepytime tea!
Source CBD- This brand uses industrial grade full-spectrum hemp with organic coconut oil. It is pure, consistent, and a high quality product! Try it in 500mg oil for a medium strength. or in a salve for topical use! Salves are great to address localized pain topically.
Irwin Naturals CBD softgels- They range in strength from 10mg per softgel all the way up to 50mg per softgel (high-potency). The 15mg softgel is a top seller and is a low to medium strength. This is a fabulously priced CBD product if you are looking to just swallow a pill and not taste the oil.
CBD with NO THC- Our favorite oil that is THC Free is by Eden Holistics. This product is nice to ease the body during the day. And Eden Holistics is a local Las Vegas CBD company!
Topical Roll On- We love the easy application of CV Science Plus CBD oil Roll On. This product makes it easy to roll it over a sore spot and move on with whatever you need to do! Quick, easy, and effective!
