What is CBD

What is CBD and what are the benefits?

CBD has become more and more popular for treatment of pain in joints and muscles.  Recent research on CBD and its effects on inflammation have proven to be more than promising.

CBD is a holistic approach to achieving overall wellness.  Its therapeutic benefits could help manage pain, relax the body and mind and inflammation associated with arthritis.  It may help to alleviate physical symptoms such as chronic or localized pain, discomfort, nausea and loss of appetite.

CBD supports a sense of overall well being and is recommended for those suffering from stress, anxiety and sleeplessness and common mood disorders.  Research has demonstrated that CBD has a positive effect on mood and sleep.

How long until I see results?

Results may vary based on age, weight, metabolism, general health and how each person’s body responds to CBD.  Results may continue to improve when desired dose is reached.

Is it safe for pregnant women to use CBD?

Pregnant or lactating women should NOT use CBD products.  For more information, consult your physician.

Where does your hemp oil come from?

Our hemp is grown on the western slope of Colorado, using organic farming practices.  We process and manufacture our products in Colorado as well.

How do I use the lotion and how much should I apply?

The lotion should be massaged into the skin and apply directly to the affected area.  Depending on the ingredients in the lotion, you might feel tingling, warming or cooling sensations.  If you’re using the product for pain, you should start to feel the effects relatively quickly.

Will using CBD make me “high”?

A THC level less than 1% and any dose of CBD are considered non-psychoactive and thus have no intoxicating effect.  As our product contains less than .3% THC.  CBD may help you feel relaxed or less anxious, but you won’t get high by using a topical CBD product.

Does the CBD, when applied to the skin, go into the circulatory system?

When CBD is applied to the skin, it does not reach the circulation system.  It could be retained through the skin’s surface to associate with the nearby cannabinoid receptors.  In reality, the skin is an amazingly active as well as utilitarian organ that acts as the helpful atomic vessel and rushes to absorb the lipid-based oils.

With this being said, the lotion contains .3% or less of THC (the legal amount to have in a CBD product without it being considered a marijuana product).  If you are drug tested at work, you should not use anything that contains THC as you could possibly test positive for THC.  We will be coming out with a “T-Free” product soon, which would be safe to use if you are drug tested.

How does the CBD work on a physiological level?

The CBD works by collaborating with the body’s own particular endocannabinoid system known as ECS.  The Endocannabinoid system is thought to assume a critical part in the safe reaction of our skin.  A vile resistant reaction might bring about irritation and this is the reason CBD apparently acts as anti-inflammatory for the inflammation related skin conditions.  The ECS comprises of a system of naturally occurring cannabinoid or cannabinoids receptors that assistance control as well as maintain among some other things such as pain, skin sensitivity and immune response.

Does using CBD cause any side effects?

Hemp is considered generally safe, so there should not be any significant side effects of CBD, however, we cannot rule them out as it really depends on how your body tolerates and adapts to the hemp oil.  We would recommend to consult your physician before using CBD if you are at all concerned about how the CBD may have potential drug interactions with any drugs you may be taking.
