THE BASICS OF CBD

The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a key homeostatic regulator in the body, playing a role in almost every physiological system in the body. The ECS does this via cannabinoid receptors found in select tissues. We have (at least) two types of cannabinoid receptors:
  • CB1 which is in the central nervous system (brain and nerves of the spinal cord)
  • CB2 which is in the peripheral nervous system (nerves in your extremities), the digestive system, and specialized cells in the immune system
Through those receptors, the ECS helps regulate a lot of important functions, such as:
  • Appetite
  • Digestion
  • Immune function
  • Inflammation, including neuroinflammation
  • Mood
  • Sleep
  • Reproduction/fertility
  • Motor control
  • Temperature regulation
  • Memory
  • Pain
  • Pleasure/reward
  • Your body activates the ECS with precision so that it impacts only what it needs to. For example, if your reproductive hormones are out of whack, it will work to regulate them without altering your digestion or immune system.

    To ensure you are getting a well-rounded balance of nutrients in your diet, we suggest only taking one serving size of each product (wellness shot, & CBD protein bar) per day.

    All of our products are safe at room temperature. However, we suggest storing the wellness shots in the fridge for a more refreshing experience.

    CBD can be compared to a multivitamin in the sense of how it “works” and its exponential impact. When you take it consistently, every day, you reap more of the benefits.
