CBD Oil is making headlines for its health benefits.
Browse the web, or turn on the news, and you’ll soon discover that the cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD), found in hemp are gaining recognition and renown from health experts and everyday people for a wide-range of benefits, from easing stress, to relieving discomfort, to calming the body and mind.
Not to be confused with its botanical cousin marijuana, cannabidiol or CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. While hemp and marijuana share many of the same beneficial compounds—cannabinoids, terpenes, and antioxidant flavonoids—there is one important difference. Hemp has only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound found in high amounts in marijuana, so there is no “high” when taking CBD from hemp, just health benefits.
Imagine what your life would be like if you slept better, experienced less stress, and minor aches and discomfort were a thing of the past. Give yourself a fighting chance against the everyday stress and hardship of today’s busy lifestyle with CBD oil.
CBD from hemp is supported by a vast amount of scientific evidence.
When people hear about all the benefits of CBD oil, they usually become excited. And for good reason: hemp provides a wide range of health benefits. The good news is, these benefits are supported by a mountain of scientific evidence.
With over 15,000 articles on PubMed, CBD from hemp shows promise for athletic performance, fighting the effects of aging, and everyday use. While there are thousands to choose from, here are a few select studies should you like to read more:

How does CBD Oil Work?
Whether you’re an athlete, weekend warrior, busy professional or retiree, CBD oil can make a positive difference in your life. That’s because the cannabinoids in hemp work with your body’s Endocannabinoid System to help balance and maintain health.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a series of receptors found throughout the body—brain, immune system, central nervous system and more—that respond to cannabinoids the body produces, as well as cannabinoids from plant sources (such as hemp).
Endocannabinoid receptors are not only found in people, but all mammals, which means CBD oil can benefit pets too. The Endocannabinoid System helps to maintain a state of homeostasis or balance in the body, and plays a key role in the following areas:
- Immune System
- Sleep Function
- Digestive System
- Mood & Anxiety
- Neuro-protection (brain)
There are over 80+ beneficial compounds that are naturally found in hemp. Collectively these compounds are called cannabinoids. When you take broad spectrum CBD oil, you support your endocannabinoid system which explains why people all over the world are using this oil to help calm the effects of temporary inflammation, ease stress and everyday discomfort, and improve the quality of sleep.
