Quick Guide to CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating part of the cannabis plant with therapeutic potential and a history as a medicine that goes back thousands of years. CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC) are two of the most known natural phytocannabinoids. CBD is a naturally occurring substance used in oils, topicals, and more that supports a sense of calmness and overall wellness for a healthy mind and body.

So you’re saying that CBD won’t get me high?

YES! CBD is 100% non-psychoactive and does not induce any kind of “high” or negatively impact your thought process. CBD generally interacts with receptors in the endocannabinoid system to benefit many of the bodies systems, including your central nervous system.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a system within the body involved in regulating various physiological and cognitive processes through CB1 & CB2 receptors found in the brain, skin, and major organs. The ECS helps to control functions such as sleep, immune system responses, and pain. The body creates compounds called endocannabinoids, and hemp produces compounds called phytocannabinoids. When your body ingests phytocannabinoids, the ECS can function like it’s supposed to, and you will find yourself in a better state of homeostasis mentally and physically. Scientists believe that the Endocannabinoid System’s true purpose is to help the body establish and maintain good health.

At Tree of Life, we offer three brands of CBD. Clean Remedies, Carpe Diem, and Hemplucid. Clean Remedies and Hemplucid are USDA Certified Organic. Carpe Diem is a newer local brand from Otsego that uses organic practices, but to receive the organic stamp, it takes three years of organic farming for the USDA to come out to do the testing.
