We all could use 100% more goodness in our lives, and products this good and natural shouldn’t be difficult to understand. We want to share some simple facts about CBD benefits, because when you feel good, everything else falls into place.
What should I know about CBD more generally?
What is CBD?
Your body naturally produces molecules called endocannabinoids that help maintain the balance and stability of your systems that affect sleep, anxiety, stress, mood, inflammation, and pain. Scientists suggest that due to lifestyle stressors, many of us suffer from “cannabinoid deficiency.” But there’s good news! Cannabinoids in CBD help regulate and rebalance your body to revert to functioning more effectively. And our proprietary blend has higher concentrations of CBD, so you can love the way you feel.
What are the side effects of CBD?
CBD is generally considered safe although some side effects may include dry mouth, low blood pressure, light headedness, and drowsiness. If you experience unwanted effects, we recommend lowering your dose. If unwanted effects persist, discontinue and consult your physician.
Will I get high from CBD?
CBD has less than 0.3% THC, which is the chemical compound that gives you that high feeling. Our proprietary strain of cannabinoid-rich hemp has higher concentrations of CBD and lower concentrations of THC, so you can feel your best without feeling foggy.
What is the best way to take CBD?
Bioavailability is the measurement of how much something gets absorbed by your bloodstream. When it comes to CBD, the higher the bioavailability, the better you will feel. That’s why we recommend taking CBD under the tongue. Pick your dose based on our simple guidelines, hold our mild, fresh mint flavored blend there for 30-60 seconds before swallowing, which improves bioavailability by about 20% over swallowing right away.
Start small and work your way up until you find a dose that works well for you. Apply under your tongue and hold for 30 seconds before swallowing. This will help the CBD absorb quickly into your body. Most people find relief with 10-25mg twice a day.
How do I calculate dosing?
We’ve created a simplified formula to help you find the dosage that makes you feel your best. Most people find relief with 10-25mg twice a day, which translates to: 1 dropper for calm & focus; 1-2 droppers for inflammation & recovery; 2-3 droppers for sleep & anxiety; 4+ droppers for severe pain or anxiety. Start small and work your way up until you find a dose that works well for you. Apply the CBD under your tongue and hold for 30 seconds before swallowing, and you’ll love the way you feel with our 30-Day Guarantee.
Will CBD show up on a drug test?
We often get asked whether CBD will show up on a drug test. Because everyone metabolizes CBD differently, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. But if you are concerned about testing, we offer both THC and THC-free options. Whichever you choose, it’s goodgood to the last drop.
How is CBD and hemp oil different?
While both CBD and hemp oil are made from the same plant, CBD and hemp oil extract (different from hemp oil) has beneficial amounts of CBD and cannabinoids, as it is made from the entire hemp plant, which includes seeds, leaves and stems. Hemp oil, however, is cold-pressed only from the hemp seeds with minimal traces of CBD.
What are ways that CBD can help me spend less time worrying about my self-care and focus more on all the good things in my life?
SLEEP, ANXIETY & MOOD
CBD is can help ease anxiety by helping the body process serotonin, a hormone and neurotransmitter that plays a role in regulating emotions. This can help you get better sleep, for better moods, and less anxious feelings.
RECOVERY & INFLAMMATION
CBD helps your body reduce immune activation on the cellular level that leads to painful inflammation due to strenuous activities like working out, etc.
Can CBD help with anxiety and mood?
While we all can relate to the occasional sleepless night, sweaty palms, or Sunday Scaries, for some of us feeling anxious can be more the norm than an isolated event. Preliminary research suggests CBD may ease anxiety by helping the body process serotonin, a hormone and neurotransmitter that is critical in regulating emotions. Better regulated emotions lead to better moods, better days, and better nights, meaning you can focus more on the goodness in your life.
Can CBD help me recover after a workout?
CBD products can help reduce inflammation that happens after a workout on a cellular level, leading to those familiar aches and pains. Not only will your body feel better, but with less inflammation and pain you may also enjoy better moods and sleep as your muscles recover. It’s a win-win-win for body, mind, and those precious z’s.
Can CDB help with pain?
Pain is caused by inflammation that quickly spreads at the cellular level. Studies suggest that CBD may help manage immune cell activity to keep inflammation and painful sensations at bay, and is especially appealing due to a propensity for having lower potential for side effects than many traditional pain medications.
This all sounds great, but what's the science behind CBD and how it works?
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)
The ECS is a complex cell signaling system that is thought to help maintain the balance and stability of your internal environment. Our bodies naturally produce molecules called endocannabinoids that interact with receptors (CB1 & CB2) throughout the body. This interaction is much like a lock and key, where the body's receptors act as the lock and the endocannabinoids act as the key, unlocking your body’s full potential. Due to life stressors, scientists suggest that many of us suffer from “cannabinoid deficiency,” which may lead to other health-related issues. The cannabinoids in CBD may be the key to help your body function more effectively, maintain and regulate the balance of your internal environment, which can translate to better sleep, better moods, and less anxiety and inflammation.
