Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD 101


Curious about the benefits of full-spectrum hemp CBD? If you have found your way to our website, chances are you have been hearing about CBD, either online, from a friend, or possibly even from your healthcare provider. 


Learning about CBD can be a little tricky. There are a lot of mixed messages out there. But the truth is, CBD is pretty simple once you get past the chemistry and biology lessons! Today we’re going to dive into the basics of what it is (the chemistry) and how it works with your body (the biology). 


Warning: we are about to nerd out about plants and our bodies for a minute.


CBD (short for cannabidiol) is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. There are over 100 cannabinoids and phytocannabinoids in Cannabis Sativa, and CBD is one of them. A cannabinoid is simply a natural chemical compound unique to the cannabis plant. The most well-known cannabinoid is THC, which has psychoactive properties and causes the sensation of getting “high”. CBD, on the other hand,  is non-psychoactive. You will not experience a “high” from full-spectrum hemp CBD.


This is where the biology lesson comes in. The benefits of cannabis have been the focus of thousands of scientific studies. One of the most profound revelations to emerge from these studies is a physiologic system that supports the health and healing of every human and almost every animal; the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), named after the plant that led to its discovery.


Before we get into how the Endocannabinoid System works, let’s talk about Homeostasis. You may be flashing back to 9th-grade biology right about now. Homeostasis is basically the way your body monitors changes in important bodily functions (ie; Central Nervous System, the Digestive System, and the Immune System) to make sure everything stays in balance. Is your heart beating too fast? Is your temperature higher than it should be? Are you tired? All of these things send a message that something is out of balance in your body which in turn activates the ECS.


The ECS is made up of three things: 1.) endocannabinoids (molecules similar to cannabinoids that are produced by your body), 2.) cannabinoid receptors found throughout your body (in the brain, organs, tissue, immune system), and 3.) enzymes that break up the endocannabinoids after they have done their job.  your body is out of balance, the ECS targets the appropriate receptors to regulate whatever is out of sync. When things are back in balance, the enzymes come along and destroy the endocannabinoids. 


When your body is suffering from illness, injury, or stress, the need for endocannabinoids can exceed the supply.  Incorporating CBD into your daily routine helps keep your ECS running like a well-oiled machine. As you can see, there are a number of areas where full-spectrum hemp CBD can be helpful. The most common are: anxiety, stress,  sleep cycle issues, focus, inflammation, skin cell formation, mood, digestion, memory, and pain.


To recap for you, CBD has some amazing benefits and virtually zero side effects making it a plant-based powerhouse in the medicinal arena. Check out our shop to see what CBD products we have in stock here
