Science of CBD

Human beings, and all mammals, are born with a biological and neurological system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is responsible for receiving and processing nutritional cannabinoids.

 The ECS is tasked with managing optimal performance of all human anatomical systems. It is essentially a regulatory and signaling system that responds to various states of health by relaying instructions from the brain to cell receptors throughout the body.

A healthy and functioning ECS is monumentally important, as it controls cycles of digestion, mood, sleep, circulation, immune function, cell repair, pain response, inflammation, mental and emotional stability, and so much more. When the ECS falls out of balance — due to environmental toxin exposure, trauma, injury, disease, pathogens, or other variables — a range of ailments may result. The presence of dis-ease means the ECS has fallen out of balance, is not aligned with our anatomical systems, and is not functioning the way it’s intended to.

The hemp plant is abundant in active compounds called phytocannabinoids, which affect the ECS the same way that endocannabinoids produced naturally by the body affect a healthy ECS. Thus, supplementation with hemp-based phytocannabinoids — specifically the component found in CBD, known as cannabidiol — have been studied for their ability to make up for endocannabinoid deficiencies.

Phytocannabinoids have also been shown to possess antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-toxin properties that may reduce incidence of infection, cancer, pain and other debilitating effects on the human body.

The introduction and maintenance of CBD supplementation has the potential to return the ECS to its high-functioning, balanced capabilities, which promotes the return of radiant health on all levels of our being — mind, body and spirit. Because these levels of wellness are all connected.
