Discover CBD (Cannabidiol)

In the past decade, the national conversation surrounding medical marijuana has shifted significantly. It’s no longer a question of if it works - it does - but how it can be used for maximum benefit. In particular, it is Cannabidiol (CBD), the non-intoxicating compound of marijuana, that’s garnered the most buzz amongst doctors, who’ve been using it to treat seizures, chronic pain, and anxiety, amongst other ailments.

It was only in 1988 that we became aware that our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, neurotransmitters that regulate relaxation, eating, sleeping memory, and our immune system. And CBD, which bears a striking structural similarity to these endocannabinoids, helps stimulate this system, promoting overall mental and physical health.

In the past few decades, a broad spectrum of research has been conducted that shows the wide variety ailments and illnesses that CBD can be used to treat. And CBD, which can be taken orally, vaped, and as a topical salve, is safe for children too. Major media outlets have shone a spotlight on inspiring success stories around children suffering from constant, painful seizures that were only relieved through the use of CBD. Even sick pets can be treated with CBD.
