The Benefits of CBD

  1. Eases Pain Relief: CBD has been studied for its potential to alleviate chronic pain by interacting with the endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating pain. Research shows that Full Spectrum CBD reduces chronic pain by targeting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation, and interacting with neurotransmitters. Preclinical evidence also suggests that it may be effective in relieving pain from rheumatic diseases like fibromyalgia. CBD can also help manage symptoms related to cancers and its treatment, such as nausea and pain.

  2. Anti-Inflammatory: Studies have shown that CBD has many anti-inflammatory effects. Inflammation is the process by which the immune system recognizes and removes harmful and foreign stimuli and begins the healing process. Applying a CBD Salve to a area of the body causing pain can help speed up this process.

  3. Anxiety & Depression: CBD may have anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) and antidepressant properties. It may interact with serotonin receptors in the brain, boosting your mood and reducing stress levels. CBD can have similar affects on anxious animals such as cats and dogs, but require a different dosage
