The farm bill of 2014 legalized the production of Hemp based products in the US, such as CBD oil products. While there have been a plethora of medical studies on the benefits of CBD, it is still not a product that is prescribed by doctors.

CBD has proven scientific benefits for pain relief, it's anti-inflammatory properties help with chronic pain and even recovering from a sports injury. Of course there is a place for prescription pain killers but there are natural alternatives out there to consider as well. 

CBD Oil - non-psychoactive + non-addictive + 100% organic pain relief: 

In America we face a daunting opioid epidemic that has impacted millions of people. 115 people die from an opioid overdose everyday in the US. Now more than ever, people are looking for alternatives to pain treatment. 

CBD oil products, such as CBD Wellness Tinctures, are a non-pyschoactive (no "high") and non addictive. This is a safe and legal alternative that can provide consistent relief to those suffering from conditions that cause chronic pain or those who have experienced a sports related injury. 

How does CBD work: 

CBD has many analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, this helps to reduce the swelling that typically causes pain. The human body has something called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This controls how a person feels, moves, thinks and reacts. Specifically the ECS handles functions such as appetite, sleep, mood, memory, sensation, pain and the immune system.

CB1 is a cannabinoid receptor that is found in the brain, when the endocannabinoids and phytocannabioids that are found in plants bind to these receptors, analgesic and anti-nausea effects are brought about. 

CB2 is a cannabinoid receptor that is found throughout the body and is responsible for anti-inflammatory improvement. 

CBD works with your body's endocannabinoid system to create meaningful relief.
