What is CBD Oil?
The vast array of biological systems in our bodies get depleted from environmental factors and stressors we experience every day. Cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound found in hemp plants, naturally supports and replenishes these systems. This process helps keep the body in balance, giving us a chance to feel our best, mentally and physically.*
What is Hemp?
Hemp is one of the oldest cultivated crops on the planet. Industrial hemp is grown worldwide to manufacture a wide range of products, from textiles to cosmetics, to building materials. Not to mention it’s medicinal uses. Green Compass Farms grow 100% of their hemp for their hemp extract that includes CBD and other beneficial compounds found in the plant. Steps are taken to ensure quality, from seed to harvest. Green Compass makes sure that the hemp they grow remains high in CBD and low in THC.
How does it work?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a receptor system found throughout the body and is involved in regulating many of our critical biological processes. These systems and processes have a direct effect on sleep, memory, mood, metabolism, inflammation, and many other vital aspects of our health.
There are two different cannabinoid receptors in our bodies: CB1 and CB2 Receptors.
CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system. This includes brain, nerve cells, lungs, heart, spinal cord and reproductive organs. CB1 receptors play a role in the regulation of mood, pain, sleep, and motor skills.
CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune and lymphatic Systems, which regulate inflammation, digestion, heart and stomach function.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids bind with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system throughout the body. CBD helps the endocannabinoid system function optimally, which allows biological systems and processes in the body to function properly. This helps the whole body find homeostasis and allows us to maintain overall good health.
