What is CBD/Hemp?
What is CBD?
- CBD will not make you high. CBD is non-psychoactive, there is no associated euphoria. CBD is even known to counteract the effects of THC which make you high (we do not sell marijuana).
- What are the differences between Hemp & Marijuana? Although Hemp and Marijuana come from the same plant family, are genetically similar, and physically alike; there are distinct differences in their use. While marijuana is used for medicinal relief or to get high, hemp can be used to make many products including: dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, paper, non-psychoactive smokables & more.
CBD has wonderful ways in which it works within the human body. Our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) help regulate our bodies by optimally adapting to change. The cell receptors within this system have influence eating, sleeping, relaxation and cognition along with recovery and repair. Endocannabinoid receptors can be found in the human brain & spinal chord or immune cells & peripheral nervous system
Your Health & CBD
Although research is still ongoing, there are several medical studies that show a positive correlation regarding human and animal health between CBD and the ECS. CBD is able to influence a majority of biological systems within the body. Although we encourage CBD use and many people use CBD to address and maintain good health. It is still smart to come to your own conclusion and to consult with healthcare providers

CBD Interacting with RX Medication
CBD can cause enzymes within the liver to activate which may effect the potency of medications; possibly making them stronger or weaker. There is not yet any solid determination of how CBD influences the metabolism of prescription and OTC medication. If you are using medication that may be effected by CBD it is recommended to consult your prior to use.
