• To understand why CBD works the way that it does, we must first understand the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The National Institutes of Health explains the ECS as, “a recently discovered signaling system comprising the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors, their intrinsic lipid ligands, endocannabinoids and the associated enzymatic machinery.” The ECS is responsible for regulating many systems within our body and is closely tied to our immune system. In order for our body to maintain homeostasis, our bodies must produce endocannabinoids (natural chemical signals) which interact with the cannabinoid receptors mentioned...

  • Many people wonder about using Cannabidiol (CBD) topically instead of ingesting an oil. However, some question whether it would work as well as ingesting it. Others prefer to use a lotion/crème because of the experience. Fortunately there are many benefits to using CBD topically – especially for pain relief. For molecules to be absorbed trans dermally, they must be under 500 g/mol. CBD only measures at 314.469 g/mol.  - CBD can be applied directly to the painful areas, which means it may work faster and more efficiently. This also means...

  • THC is the most famous component of cannabis, but cannabidiol (CBD) is the real hero. It is non-psychoactive (doesn’t get you “high”), and contains a lot of properties that can help with different conditions. Each person has an endocannabinoid system, which works alongside our immune system to help with these conditions. This system is “fed” by consuming cannabinoids like CBD.  Diabetes CBD has been shown to help people with diabetes stabilize and decrease their need for insulin or other medications. According to the American Journal of Physiology, it has been...

  • Most people think that acne just occurs during puberty when our hormonal output is elevated, but sometimes, it lasts long after that. Regardless of when, or if, acne diminishes, it is something that nearly everyone will struggle with at some point in their life. There have been studies showing how beneficial cannabinoids, and cannabidiol (CBD) can be for acne. This study from 2010 explains some of the reasons why CBD might be beneficial as a natural alternative to the pharmaceuticals so many teens are taking to help control their acne....
