CBD OIL

The hemp or cannabis plant is made up of many components that have been used for centuries for medicinal and other purposes. The two most popular components of this plant are A) tetrahydro cannabis(THC) and b) cannabidiol (CBD). The THC component is the part of the plant that causes an altered state of mind. For some people this is a positive feeling and for some people is quite uncomfortable. The reason for this is that cells in our bodies have receptors for these components.  We all were born with these receptors. Being born with these receptors is a clue that our bodies naturally make a variation of these substances. This has been shown scientifically. The endocannabinoid system impacts many areas of health and is most abundant in the brain and immune system. Studies have shown this system to be responsible for important functions such as sleep, relaxation, inflammatory responses and cognitive ability. Ongoing research is being conducted to explain why our bodies naturally make these substances. The following conditions are believed to occur because of an imbalance in our body's level of the internal cannabinoids:

Chronic Migraine

Irritable bowel syndrome

Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions

Bipolar disease

Parkinson's disease

Diabetic retinopathy

Inflammation

The CBD component is considered the therapeutic component of this plant. CBD acts like our internal cannabinoid. Supplementing with CBD restores the balance of our body's "endocannabinoid" system.

Pure CBD is non-habit forming, has no significant side effects, doesn't have the "high" effect of THC, and is safe enough for pets.
