CBD Oil seems to be taking the world by storm lately. But if you're anything like me, you have your doubts. When something is talked about "too much", you can basically see me dip out on ever giving it any chance.
I had the same thoughts with CBD. I had purchased some a couple of years ago off of Amazon and didn't notice any difference. I chucked it into the back of my essential oils and just kept on with life, never giving it another thought.
But I recently had a lot of pretty life altering family dynamic uproars, a teething toddler, and just some personal stuff I've been sorting through that made me search out a natural solution.
I decided to do my own research (always an advocate for this!) and dive back into finding out more about CBD and looking for a high quality source. Which lead me to the path of Hempworx.
WHAT is CBD?
CBD is simply short for “cannabidiol”, the second-most abundant cannabinoid molecule produced within the cannabis (hemp) plant. The most abundant molecule, of course, being THC: the psychoactive chemical famous for making users feel “high” (note that CBD does not have this effect). Keep in mind that your body already has an endocannabinoid system, an extremely important molecular system that your body uses to regulate and perform various critical functions. CBD binds to receptors in this system; our bodies were designed to interface with cannabinoids from the very beginning -- we even naturally produce them!
Until recently, CBD was somewhat stigmatized and not taken seriously as a potential medically therapeutic agent due to its chemical proximity to THC (the chemical that creates an intoxicating “high”). Now that those barriers are coming down, CBD is finally being scientifically explored in full for the first time.

Binds to the allosteric receptor site
Non-toxic and safe for humans and animals
Why should we use CBD?
Did you know your whole body has an Endocannabinoid system? The endocannabinoid system (or ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which is composed of neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptors sit on the surface of cells and “listen” to conditions outside the cell. They transmit information about changing conditions to the inside of the cell, kick-starting the appropriate cellular response.
Endocannabinoids are produced naturally by cells in the human body (“endo” means “within,” as in within the body).
There are two major endocannabinoids: anandamide and 2-AG. These endocannabinoids are made from fat-like molecules within cell membranes, and are synthesized on-demand. This means that they get made and used exactly when they’re needed, rather than packaged and stored for later use like many other biological molecules.
Since CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, it helps to promote homeostasis in the body, reducing the sensation of pain and inhibiting inflammation.
Basically if you're a living breathing human being you can benefit from CBD. Even our fur babies can benefit from CBD!
The most common uses for adults using CBD are:
Anxiety & Stress Relief
Would smoother bedtime routines be helpful in your life? How about kids who eat meals with less complaining? Maybe you’d be thrilled to see the kiddos head outside to play instead of spending hour after hour in front of screens?
Helping a little one deal with the pain from teething? What about assisting thru those tough "pre toddler" emotional phases of separation anxiety?
A daily serving of CBD can make these day dreams a reality.
Does your fur baby suffer when you have to travel? Or simply be away from them during the day? What about during fireworks, or other loud noises? Even a simply vet visit can be so overwhelming for them and you feel like you are helpless to calm them.
Pet CBD can help relax your fur babies so they don't have to be so tensed up during these times!
