What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating compound found in the hemp and cannabis plant. Specifically, CBD and THC (the most recognized cannabinoid causing the ‘high’ feeling) are amongst 113 phytocannabinoids that can be used to supplement the body’s insufficient production of cannabinoids. Numerous scientific studies are posted weekly showing the profound improvement of participants’ health when consuming CBD. CBD is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health supplement that is very safe (non-lethal even at high doses).
It’s like non-alcoholic weed.

Why does CBD work?
CBD influences the cannabinoid receptors, specifically the CB-2 receptors throughout the body. CB-2 receptors mainly regulate the immune system. By controlling the receptors, CBD regulates the amount of AEA and 2AG absorbed by the body. When CBD reduces the intake of AEA, pain is reduced improving one’s overall well-being. CBD and other phytocannabinoids influence CB-2 receptors throughout the body, improving many health issues and body organs.

How much CBD do I take?
Always consult a physician when consuming dietary supplements and vitamins - CBD and hemp supplements are no different. As a rule of thumb, 10 mg per 100 lbs is the most often recommended dosage. When new to CBD, start with ½ the dose and add if needed. The cannabinoid CBN can cause some drowsiness, so if new please consume before bedtime. Consume other pharmaceutical medicines at different times. Follow a daily recommended water consumption of 8 glasses.
