What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the 100+ cannabinoids that can be extracted from hemp. Hemp comes from the species, Cannabis Sativa, and is legally grown in America for its industrial uses and its non-psychoactive health properties, as it must contain no more than 0.3% THC.
The CBD in CARLbar comes from a certified industrial hemp farm in Colorado, providing an extract that contains 0.00% THC (the “high”). Therefore, no need to worry about failing a drug test from eating CBD.
So, what’s the hype about CBD?
Studies suggest that hemp-derived CBD may offer health benefits including, but not limited to, pain and inflammation support, anxiety and depression relief, muscle recovery, skin health, and immune system support.
How much CBD is right for me?
Studies have shown that benefits can be felt in as little as 2.5mg of CBD. Depending on what ailment you are looking to help, upper amounts of 200mg may be more beneficial. Find what’s right for you but starting low and working your way up! CBD is known to be non-toxic and no fatal overdoses have ever been reported.
How does CBD offer these health benefits?
In our bodies, there is a system of cell receptors and molecules referred to as the Endocannabinoid System. This system is responsible for much of the homeostasis control within our bodies.
Endocannabinoids are the chemicals responsible for maintaining this system. CBD helps regulate homeostasis by stopping naturally occurring enzymes in our bodies from breaking down the good endocannabinoids, thus, allowing for a happier and healthier you!
