What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring, safe, and non-addictive compound found in Hemp plants. CBD does not make a person feel “high”, as it has no psychoactive effects and interacts with the human body differently. CBD has been recognized for its extensive mind and body health benefits on humans and animals. It can be used in many different ways including oils, tinctures, capsules, vaping, edibles, and topicals. 

While CBD’s popularity has been widespread lately, it is still a very new industry with many of its users being new and inexperienced. We are here to help you understand what CBD is, how it works, how it can benefit your life, and how it can benefit the lives of your pets. 

Due to the immense health benefits of CBD, there has been more scientific studies on CBD done in the last decade than in the years since its initial discovery. As more research is being done we will continue to gain additional insight into how this amazing, naturally-occurring compound works with just about every organ in the body. Passing through the Endocannabinoid system (ECS), CBD helps to restore natural balance and physiological homeostasis.

How does CBD work?

CBD’s extensive health benefits are due to its interaction with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) – a biological system found in mammals. It works to maintain homeostasis (balance) in our bodies, which can include everything from regulating your core temperature to your mood, appetite, sleep, energy levels, blood pressure, and more.



ECS Receptors

CBD works by attaching itself to and activating the cannabinoid receptors found in the ECS⁠—this is what allows it to treat so many conditions and maintain our body’s health and wellness. Coincidently, this is how many common medications work⁠: by mimicking other cells in your body in an attempt to promote well-being or provide positive effects. The main difference, however, is that unlike common medications, CBD is produced by a natural extraction process as opposed to being synthetically produced in a lab.

Can CBD help me?

There is no longer a debate in whether CBD can be used as an effective herbal medication; the challenge now is figuring out how to maximize its therapeutic benefits. Due to its low-risk and extensive natural medical benefits, many people are using CBD to supplement their current medications.

Whether you are looking to improve your overall health and homeostasis, or targeting a specific ailment, CBD has shown promising results and continues to be researched extensively by scientists, universities, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies worldwide. 

Our hope is that one day, all medical professionals will become educated and confident in recommending CBD for patients, instead of other synthetic medications formulated in a lab. 

As much as we would love to give hundreds of testimonials of how CBD has helped others, we must abide by the regulations set forth by the FDA, which considers such information as claims about our products. We encourage you to do your own research and learn about the therapeutic uses CBD can have on your mind and body.

Is CBD Legal?

In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has deemed CBD products derived from hemp legal at the federal level. However, each state has its own laws on the matter⁠, making things very confusing. Read more about the 2018 farm bill here. All of our products are sourced from non-psychoactive hemp and can be purchased in the same way dietary supplements are bought today.

Can CBD help my pet?

CBD provides our furry friends with the same mind and body benefits that it does for humans. How? Most mammals have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) just like humans do. It can be used as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant (which helps with tremors, tics, seizures, etc), and is also an effective painkiller. 

We have many animal-friendly products that are all natural and can be used for dogs, cats, and horses.
