Let's talk about hemp!

WHAT IS HEMP    Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant with low concentrations of THC (under 0.3%), high concentrations of CBD (5-20%) and is non-intoxicating. Our products are made with full-spectrum hemp extract meaning they are made from hand-harvested hemp flower and include not only CBD, but other beneficial cannabinoids like CBG + THC. Hemp has a long history of medicinal and industrial use around the world. Humans have co-evolved with this plant and have used it to support physical and mental wellness for thousands of years.

WHY HEMP    All humans have cannabinoid receptors in their body. In fact, we have an entire endocannabinoid system in our bodies made to receive, create and manage cannabinoids. According to CBD: a Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis, the endocannabinoid system, though it was undiscovered until 1988, is extremely important and is responsible for two basic activities. First, it modulates pleasure, energy and well-being. Second, it has the ability to nudge the body back to health in the face of injury and disease. Cannabinoids and their receptors are naturally found in the brain and many organs as well as connective tissue, glands, skin, and immune cells. The list of health concerns that can benefit from CBD is extensive because these receptors are integral to so many bodily systems. This is also the reason cannabinoids can be used for preventative wellness, protecting the body. We believe in the power of hemp as an essential wellness supplement and aim to help you understand how to support your endocannabinoid system!
