WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBD?

SKIN HEALTH

Protection is key when it comes to keeping skin healthy. CBD oil is a well-rounded source of skin-friendly antioxidant vitamins & nutrients that help fend-off the signs of free radical damage.  Free radicals are a major cause of aging including wrinkles, loss of collagen and elasticity.  CBD oil contains Vitamins, Amino Acids & Omega Fatty Acids.  All of which are important for a youthful appearance.

ANXIETY & STRESS

CBD oil is known to help reduce the feelings of stress & anxiety by increasing levels of “positive” hormones and neurotransmitters in the body. A 2010 study in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that CBD could reduce symptoms of social anxiety in people with the disorder.  Brain scans showed changes in blood flow to areas of the brain linked to feelings of anxiety.  CBD made the participants feel better and changed the way their brains responded to anxiety.

PAIN & INFLAMMATION

Several studies have shown that CBD is beneficial for pain management and is the strongest natural anti-inflammatory. Its power surpasses curcumin, omega-3, anti-oxidants, vitamin C, and proteolytic enzymes.   And the best part?  It’s impossible to overdose on CBD. It doesn’t negatively affect the kidneys, liver, or gut lining.  It’s simply an all-natural, healthy, organic, anti-inflammatory and pain suppressant.

CLARITY & FOCUS

CBD has been shown to help address symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. By improving both attention and calmness, it may allow your brain to stay focused in on the task at hand, rather than get scattered by the many day to day distractions. The clearing of the mind is imperative for concentration and focus. There’s also data showing that CBD might actually help to improve cognition.

CBD provides Beauty Without the Buzz™.  It’s natural.  It’s powerful! And, most importantly it’s Not Pot!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Simply put, CBD affects what is known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system’s most important function is to maintain balance and homeostasis of almost everything happening inside the body.

This system directly affects human receptors found all throughout the body. Activated CB1 receptors help control our physiological functions including sleep, mood, pain, memory, appetite & vomiting. CB2 receptors are most commonly found in cells related to our immune system and are known to help control inflammation.

The brain contains highly specialized cells called neurons which are connected by gaps called synapses. This is how the cells communicate with each other. When the brain receives the presence of CBD into the bloodstream the CB1 and CB2 receptors are stimulated due to natural chemical reactions.  In other words, they encouraged to get to work doing what they do.

There’s a growing body of evidence demonstrating that deficits in endocannabinoid signaling may result in anxiety and depressive behavioral responses. There have been many studies conducted indicating that CBD has proven effective in aiding the treatment of many diseases such as fibromyalgia, epilepsy, PTSD, schizophrenia, depression, and cancer*.

CBD FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CBD is NOT pot and won’t get you high!

CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD oil is a natural plant compound which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. The beauty of CBD is that it provides the body with many wonderful benefits, internally and externally but, will not get you high.  It does not contain THC and is non-psychoactive!

No! All CBD oil is NOT the same and all CBD oil is NOT created equal. Special care needs to be taken when selecting CBD products. Whim™ products use only the purest form of Certified Free THC, Water-soluble, Broad-Spectrum,  CBD oil that’s free from THC, metals, and pesticides and, is grown in the USA. Our CBD oil maintains all of its beneficial properties that are found naturally within the plant.

Cannabinoids, like CBD and THC, are the chemical compounds that are secreted by cannabis flowers. They are known to provide relief to many different symptoms including anxiety, pain, nausea, and inflammation. They function by simply imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, which activate to help maintain internal health & stability. Essentially, they mediate communication between cells, and when there is some kind of problem or a deficiency with our endocannabinoid system, negative side effects and physical problems can occur.

Let’s first understand what “Full” spectrum CBD is. Full-spectrum CBD contains all of the components that the hemp plant has by origin. It maintains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in the hemp plant as well as psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol(THC). All of which have their own therapeutic properties and help to create what’s known as the entourage effect.

Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC. It offers all of the entourage benefits associated with full-spectrum CBD, without any psychoactive THC present. It’s the best choice for those who don’t want THC in their systems as THC can be detected during drug screenings.

The body’s endocannabinoid system is a large network of cell receptor proteins that deal with just about anything the body is or does, including mood, memory, motor control, immune function, reproduction, pain perception, appetite, sleep, and bone development, to name a few. Because CBD oil works naturally with the ECS, the list of things CBD oil could potentially benefit is huge.

There has been a very wide range of benefits reported by CBD users. A short list would include; reduced stress and anxiety, improved sleep and mood, pain and inflammation reduction, improved skin conditions, improved mental clarity and focus and more*. CBD may produce different results for different people.

There is no record of anyone overdosing on CBD. CBD oil is non-toxic, and the Whim™ products all contain Broad-Spectrum CBD oil that contains zero THC. However, consuming extremely high amounts of CBD oil may cause drowsiness.

Our products are 100% THC free. We confirm this through our own internal lab reports as well as 3rdparty reports done on every batch of CBD oil. Our 3rdparty reports are conducted by advanced ISO certified cannabis testing labs in the United States to ensure you will not test positive for THC if the lab testing your urine or blood is an advanced testing lab.

Drug testing kits purchased at retail stores or online are not advanced enough to distinguish between THC and CBD. If you test positive for THC using one of these kits, immediately go to a local lab and have them take a urine or blood sample. This will provide you with credible data to show that you did not have THC in your blood in any situation that matters.

There have been studies that have shown that CBD may affect the metabolism of certain classes of drugs. While the effects have been shown to be minimal, more research is required in this area. We recommend you consult with a qualified medical professional to determine what is best for you.

There has not been enough research conducted to fully determine the safety of taking CBD while pregnant. While we are not aware of any serious adverse effects that have been observed from taking CBD during pregnancy, we strongly recommend that those who are pregnant discuss taking CBD with a prenatal care physician.

CBD alone does not have an expiration date. But, like all other products, products containing CBD oil can degrade over time and should be used within a reasonable period of time. Always store your CBD tinctures in a cool place away from direct sunlight or even in the refrigerator. Always refer to the expiration dates on the individual products for more information.
