Many people are now adding CBD to their health routines for its many wellness benefits. At CBD Wellness Store our focus is providing industry leading CBD products; while educating our customers. CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a natural compound that is extracted from the hemp plant. It has been used for over 10,000 years as a wellness product. CBD’s health benefits are delivered by bonding to the body’s endocannabinoid receptors that are found in the brain, nervous, and immune system.

Hemp And Marijuana

Although hemp and marijuana are both in the cannabis family, they are not the same plant. Hemp is high in CBD and can aid the human body in enhancing overall well-being. While hemp contains <.3% THC, the marijuana plant can contain up to 25% THC. This means that no psychoactive effects are ever experience from hemp extracted CBD oil. At CBD Wellness Store we only carry broad spectrum products that are 100% free of THC, so our customers can experience all the health benefits without the high.

Endocannabinoid System

All humans, dogs, cats, replies and birds have something called an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is a network of receptors throughout the body. The purpose of the ECS is to aid our bodies in maintaining balance and overall health; even when well-being is negatively impacted by lifestyle and environmental factors. For example, the human body naturally produces cannabinoids that bond to ECS receptors when external factors such as pain or fever disrupt homeostasis (balance). As we age, the body produces lower level of cannabinoids which can be supplemented with CBD to enhance homeostasis. Clinical research suggests that cannabinoids found naturally in CBD can support improved health and wellness. Although years of research has been conducted on CBD, more is needed to conclusively identify the full range of benefit that CBD can have on the Enodcannabinoid System.

Different Forms Of CBD

Many people are confused by the different forms of CBD and ask what’s the difference? A salve / balm is a topical form of CBD and is well suited for people who do not want to ingest anything. It can be applied to a targeted area of the body and takes effect within 15 minutes. The difference in ingestible CBD products such as CBD soft gels, CBD gummies, CBD tincture oil and vape is delivery speed and duration. For example, soft gels and gummies must first pass through the digestive track. They can take upwards of an hour to take effect, but can last up to eight hours. Tincture oil that is taken orally can last up to four to five hours; however, the effects are quickly felt within 10 to 20 minutes. Vape is the fastest delivery with almost immediate effect, but has the shortest duration in the body, approximately two to three hours.
