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.

The Endocannabi-wha?

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:

  • Pain
  • Sleep
  • Mood
  • Memory
  • Appetite
  • Inflammation

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.  To make sure you have all of your CBD oil questions answers, be sure to read our blog post that is a User Guide to Mission Farms CBD Oils.

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
