What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (“CBD”) is a plant compound found in hemp. CBD can be found in other plants, like broccoli and kale, but the hemp plant is where it is most abundant.
Doctors have trusted cannabinoids - CBD being one of over 100 different ones - for thousands of years to deliver long-lasting relief from many ailments, including acute pain*, inflammation*, arthritis*, and neuropathy*. CBD continues to be studied and tested by scientists, pharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals as a natural solution to common ailments such as the ones mentioned above.
How does Our Relief and Recovery Cream work?
But Really, How Does it Work?
Hemp has been used for medical purposes since 2700 B.C because of the way it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a central regulatory system in the body that helps to regulate the immune, nervous and digestive systems and keeps the body in balance
On its own, the human body naturally produces compounds known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors in the central regulatory system—specifically in the central and peripheral nervous systems. The fact that this system already exists in the human body is what enables cannabinoids to be so effective.
Cannabinoids - like CBD - supplement and enhance our cannabinoid deficiency and ensure that our immune, nervous and digestive systems are kept in balance. Think of it like Vitamin C; when our bodies are deficient in Vitamin C we experience fatigue and infections like the common cold. Vitamin C helps to support a healthy immune system in the same way that cannabinoids support the endocannabinoid system in the body. CBD is a powerful player in the cannabinoid arsenal and has shown promise maintaining a balanced immune system while promoting everyday health and wellness.
