What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and belongs to a family of molecules called cannabinoids. Cannabinoids fall into two categories. Endocannabinoids, which are produced by our own bodies and Phytocannibinoids, which are produced in plants. CBD is a phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant.
What are the effects of CBD?
CBD is able to supplement the body’s endocannabinoid system and help keep the body in homeostasis, or balance. People use it to fight pain and inflammation and also to relax and de-stress. Some find it simply improves their overall energy and mood, however CBD does NOT produce a “high” or any state of impairment.
How much CBD should I take?
Most adults start with a small dose of around 10mg and then see if they get the desired results. Feel free to explore and experiment with dosage until you find what works for you.

What is the difference between the CBD oils Balance and Enhance?

Why CBD for Skin?
The human body’s skin has its own endocannabinoid system and produces its very own cannabinoids. This is why our skin responds positively to topical CBD oils and balms being rubbed into it. Like taking CBD internally, external use promotes healthy homeostasis and so helps with inflammation and skin ailments.
