To understand how CBD works, it’s important to understand what the Endocannabinoid System is.

The human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a vast network of receptors spread throughout our entire body. It’s the body’s largest self regulatory system. Our ECS controls some of our most vital life functions, including our immune system, appetite, sleep pattern, mood and pain sensation.

A deficiency in the ECS can upset our body’s balance.

CBD and other cannabinoids fit naturally into our body’s ECS receptors and restore our bodies balance. Thus benefiting our immune system, memory, appetite, sleep pattern, mood and pain sensation.

How is CBD absorbed in the body?

There are two ways CBD can be absorbed into the body. From the outside in or the inside out. In other words, from topicals such as balms absorbed from the outside via our skin. Or internally when taken orally from an ingestible such as a capsule or tincture.

How hemp oil products are formulated and the ingredients used are critical to maximizing the effectiveness of CBD. This is also why product performance, quality and expected results can vary immensely.
