CBD has been getting a lot of attention lately, and for good reason! As more and more people throughout the world are making their health and wellbeing a priority, it’s not surprising that something as beneficial as CBD has captured their notice.
At Nature’s Ultra, we know what an incredible impact CBD can have on the way you feel. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing high-quality CBD products to the world! Unfortunately, we also know there is a lot of confusion, misconceptions, and even misinformation about CBD out there. In this article, we’re going to delve into some of the most common questions about CBD and how it can help you feel your best!
What is CBD?
Let’s start with the basics: what is CBD? CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a natural cannabinoid found in hemp plants. CBD is traditionally used in oils, creams, and rub-on products by people who are seeking to live a happy and healthy life.
It’s important to note that while some people confuse CBD with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is also found in the cannabis plant, the two are different. CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause the euphoric side effects commonly associated with THC. That means you can use CBD products without having to worry about THC causing any sort of reaction.
How does CBD work?
We’ve tackled what CBD is, so let’s move onto how it actually works. Fair warning, we’re going to get a little scientific here, so put your thinking cap on and get ready for some big words!
As we mentioned above, CBD is a cannabinoid, which is a class of chemical compounds that binds to the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors throughout your body. These receptors are found in your brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.
The cannabinoid system performs different tasks throughout your body, but regardless of the location, the ultimate goal is always homeostasis. You see, your body is always trying to maintain a state of balance and stability. As the conditions inside and outside of your body change, your body’s systems adjust and adapt to return everything to a state of homeostasis. The Endocannabinoid System is one of the many ways that your body does that.
Is CBD safe?
Now, for one of the most important questions, and the one that’s probably on your mind this very second: is CBD safe? While it’s important to remember that everyone’s body is different and reacts to health products in a unique way, CBD is considered “generally well tolerated with a good safety profile” according to this 2018 World Health Organization report. The same report also notes that “to date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
Of course, as with any health supplement, safety is dependent on the quality of the CBD that you use. That leads us to our final discussion point: Nature’s Ultra products and our commitment to quality!
At Nature’s Ultra, we’re dedicated to quality, and that begins right at the source of our ingredients. We have our own 1500-acre hemp farm in Colorado that was one of the first hemp farms in the United States to hold the USDA organic handler’s certification. At the farm, we use organic and sustainable farming practices, and we never use pesticides. Our cultivation processes have been approved by Young Living’s Seed to Seal® quality commitment.
Our commitment to quality continues during the manufacturing process. Each product is created using high-quality ingredients that are natural, organic, vegan-approved, and gluten-free. During the manufacturing process, all of our products are tested multiple times for potency and purity. Rigorous testing ensures that each product is free of any heavy metals, and our proprietary CO2 extraction methods mean you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals. We take every step possible to ensure that you get the best-quality product in the market.
And finally, it’s important to remember that the essential oils in our products share the same dedication to quality! Young Living is the world leader in essential oils, and they’re renowned for their Seed to Seal commitment to quality. Their three pillars, Sourcing, Science, and Standards, sets the standard for quality in essential oils, and in order to infuse our products with them, we also hold ourselves to reach that same standard. That means that when you pop the cap on our CBD oils, rub our cream into a sore muscle, or dab on one of our roll-on products, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve chosen the highest-quality product available.
