CBD 101

(most of) Your CBD questions answered.

BIGGEST QUESTION

How Does CBD Work?

All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce a response in the Endocannabinoid (en-dō- kə-ˈna-bə-nȯid) System in the body. This system is responsible for maintaining the body's balance and homeostasis. It regulates the immune system, mood, and nervous system.

Naturally, our bodies produce cannabinoids to help us regulate sleep, mood, and pain, to name a few. When the Endocannabinoid system becomes affected by internal or external stressors, an imbalance in our sleep, mood, and pain responses occur. CBD can help to bring the body back into balance, optimizing total body wellness.

SECOND MOST COMMON QUESTION

Will CBD Make Me High?

No. While CBD is responsible for regulating body functions, it has zero intoxicating effects. CBD will not get you high.
