WHAT IS CBD?
HOW DOES HEMP OIL WORK?
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found in our body, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are present in the brain and spinal cord; and other tissues, while CB2 receptors are mostly found in the body and immune system. The organic compounds in Hemp Oil bind to receptors in the immune system, helping send signals to fight off mutated or damaged cells that may be weakening the body. There is a multitude research that shows that hemp oil can increase cellular communication, act as a powerful anti-inflammatory, and have neuro-protectant properties. This may be why we see athletes in contact sports beginning to use hemp oil as a form of alternative treatment.
DOES HEMP OIL HELP WITH ILLNESSES?
When you have an injury, the immune system sends signals to your body that recruit your cells natural abilities to form repairs.

The organic compounds in Hemp Oil have been shown to work in the signal chain to help alert and strengthen the body's immune system response.
