First things first: what is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which naturally occurs in hemp plants. It’s one of many types of cannabinoids found in hemp, and it happens to be one that offers many benefits for our overall wellbeing.
Many people associate cannabinoids with marijuana, but CBD and marijuana are not the same. Marijuana contains a cannabinoid called THC, which results in a “high.” CBD is a cannabinoid that is not psychoactive. It only contains trace amounts of THC, so it won’t make you feel high.
What will CBD do for me?
Long story short, CBD can be a great supplement for overall health and wellness. It supports a healthy immune system and brain function, and it promotes a healthy mood. It can even improve the appearance of your skin. In short, CBD supports what makes you, you.
How does it work?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system that is believed to be responsible for homeostasis. Basically, it’s believed to maintain the body’s biological balance in response to environmental changes. This has far-reaching implications because endocannabinoid receptors can be found nearly everywhere: organs, the brain, immune cells, tissues, glands.
CBD is believed to affect the body’s endocannabinoid system by targeting and stimulating these receptors, specifically the CBD1 and CBD2 receptors. CBD supports the healthy immune system, and we’re just beginning to unlock the possibilities.
There are so many CBD brands to choose from. Are they all the same?
We’re glad you asked. CBD is not all the same. HempWorx has set a new standard with conscious growing practices, rigorous testing, safe ingredients, and a clean, CO2 extraction process. Our goal is to help people lead healthier lives, and we believe the only way to do that is with the highest quality products.
Here’s what makes HempWorx CBD different:
- American-farmed hemp
- Rigorous, multi-stage lab testing
- No GMOs, synthetics, or fillers
- Hemp seed oil carrier — not MCT
What do “broad spectrum” and “full spectrum” mean?
Both broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD offer many benefits. The right choice depends on your preference.
Full spectrum CBD has all of the beneficial compounds found in hemp, like terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and cannabinoids, including trace amounts of THC. HempWorx products are certified to contain less than 0.3% THC, so they won’t make you feel high. Click here to find out how full spectrum CBD products may affect a drug test.
Broad spectrum CBD offers similar benefits, but doesn’t contain any THC at all. HempWorx uses a special process for this, and each batch is thoroughly tested for purity. If you’d rather not try THC, you can trust that you won’t find any in HempWorx broad spectrum CBD.
