The Endocannabinoid System

Cannabis research led to the subsequent discovery of the endocannabinoid system. This network of neurons that work together as your body’s biochemical communicative system is responsible for regulating significant functions that make up our day-to-day experience.

Cannabinoid receptors have been found throughout crucial biological systems, with two being identified as CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB receptors regulate sleep cycles, pain sensations, appetite, inflammation, analgesia, hormones, gastrointestinal mobility, as well as mood-altering neurotransmitters. When CBD is introduced to our bodies, it triggers these receptors that are found throughout our immune system, nervous system, brain, bones, blood vessels, and more, nudging your system towards homeostasis.

Drug Testing and Drug Interactions

Full-spectrum CBD does contain less than 0.3% THC. This is enough to trigger a positive test result in drug tests. If drug testing is a concern for you, we recommend taking our CBD isolate products. Our CBD isolate products are third-party, independently tested to ensure zero THC content.

CBD and grapefruit both temporarily inhibit the enzyme responsible for metabolizing the majority of pharmaceuticals in the market. If your healthcare professional has advised you not to consume grapefruit due to your current course of medication, please speak to them before taking CBD. We always recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before trying CBD products.
