CBD (short for cannabidiol) is a compound found in hemp, part of the Cannabis sativa plant species. Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, but have very different properties—CBD is non-psychotropic (doesn’t produce a “high”) and has proven health benefits. The CBD used in our products and services is hemp-derived, and therefore does not contain any THC.
Here are five surprising benefits of enlisting CBD’s help to soothe your problem areas:
CBD fights inflammation in muscles by activating the pathways of existing cannabinoid (CB2) receptors in the body and then reducing soreness and stiffness.
When we feel out of balance or in pain, it can be hard to relax. Because CBD works directly at the site of irritated nerve receptors, it desensitizes pain, allowing the body to relax instead of spasm.
CBD is a highly-targeted approach to pain relief because of the way it works as a lock and key system with the human body. Injuries to joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves all respond well to CBD massage.
CBD leaves you feeling relaxed and alert (as opposed to groggy or high). This is because it’s been found to positively affect receptors in the body that control serotonin levels, which in turn reduces stress, lowers anxiety levels, and boosts your mood.
Hemp oil is extremely moisturizing, conditioning, and protects the skin, so you’ll experience the benefit of soft and supple skin.
