What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is an all-natural, organic compound found in hemp.
Hemp is a relative of the cannabis plant. But unlike cannabis, it has very low amounts of THC, the compound that makes people feel high. The CBD in hemp extract provides health benefits without the high.
In fact, CBD is one of the most promising organic compounds known to humans. Recent scientific and medical research is revealing its many benefits including treating pain, inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, epilepsy, eczema, and much more.
How can CBD have such a wide range of benefits?
Scientific literature has identified more than 65 molecular targets of CBD. It is rare for a single compound to benefit so many parts of the body.
CBD can positively affect:
- Vanilloid Receptors, which modulate pain levels
- Serotonin Receptors, which impact anxiety, depression, and mood
- Adenosine Receptors, which regulate the quality and depth of sleep
- Endocannabinoid Receptors, which influence stress levels, energy levels, memory, and appetite
Scientist are still determining the exact mechanisms by which CBD positively affects so many body systems. It appears to function in a variety of ways. But while the details of how it works in each body system are still being uncovered, the results are undeniable.
It seems like every week a new study is being released that identifies the benefits of CBD and clarifies the ways in which it works.

Why CBD + Essential Oils
When combined, CBD and Essential oils have an impact that is greater than the sum of their parts.
Like . . .
Milk and Cookies, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Mac and Cheese
CBD and essential oils are simply better together.
C’mon, buddy, you’re sounding like a snake-oil salesman.
I know, I know. Hang with us for a second.
Essential oils are primarily comprised of organic compounds called Terpenes. And Terpenes work along with CBD in the body’s Endocannabinoid System.
Haven’t heard of it? We don’t blame you. Scientists didn’t even discover this essential body system until the 1980s. While the rest of us were pegging our jeans and hair spraying our bangs, scientists were researching a body system that connected and regulated most of the others: the Endocannabinoid System.
Both CBD and Terpenes influence receptors throughout the body’s Endocannabinoid System in order to regulate things like:
That’s right, much of our health and well-being is regulated by the Endocannabinoid System.
We produce our own endocannabinoids which send messages between cells throughout our body. But plants also produce cannabinoids, like CBD, that can supplement our own supply. Plants also produce Terpenes that work within the same system.

Hitting the Target with CBD and Essential Oils
Only recently, scientists have begun to discover that the effects of cannabinoids like CBD can be targeted and amplified depending on which Terpenes are present with them.
CBD + Terpene Humulene —-> Reduces Pain
CBD + Terpene Linalool —-> Induces Sleep
CBD + Terpene beta Caryophyllene —-> Calms Anxiety
At Mission Farms we combine our top quality CBD with specific terpenes (and essential oils that contain Terpenes) to address specific ailments.
You can buy a plain old bottle of CBD from anyone.
But we all know that . . .
Milk is better with Cookies
Peanut Butter is better with Jelly
Macaroni is better with Cheese

"Our daughter has always had difficulty not only falling asleep, but staying asleep as well. We tried the REST oil at bedtime, and immediately noticed a difference. In fact the next morning, the first words out of her mouth were "Mom that stuff really worked!" We could see she looked more rested, and felt better starting her day. Overall, we've observed and heard less disruptions to her sleep, and would highly recommend this natural product."

"As I've transitioned off pharmaceutical anxiety medications over the past year, I have tried a variety of full-spectrum CBD tinctures and Mission Farms Rest and Relax formulas have been my favorite. The mint flavor in the Relax was pleasantly invigorating while the vanilla and lavender notes in the Rest were quite calming. A sense of inner ease to help start my day and tranquil sedation at bedtime, thanks Mission Farms!"
