About CBD

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoids found in the resin of the hemp cannabid plant. CBD does not have the same effects as THC, the other major cannabinoid found in this resin, and therefore does not get you "high". Further to the positive effects on the body, CBD has specifically shown to have potential effects by:

  • Boosting the immune system (immune-modulating)
  • Counteracting the formation of tumors (anti-tumorigenic)
  • Fighting inflammation (anti-inflammatory)
  • Preventing vomiting (antiemetic)
  • Recovering or regenerating the nervous system (neuroprotective)
  • Reducing or preventing anxiety (anti-anxiety)
  • Reducing or preventing seizures (anticonvulsant)
  • Relieving pain (analgesic)

CBD does not have intoxicating effects and has minimal to no side effects. It can interact with other medications, and we recommend speaking with a healthcare professional who is cannabis-trained to learn more about if this will interact with medications you are currently taking.

About Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids can be found on hemp cannabis plants. The "buds" found on the cannabis plant, when in bloom, are covered in trichomes, which are tiny glandular structures. The resin produced by these trichomes contain natural compounds, including CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
