What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, known widely as CBD is extracted taken from the cannabis plant and diluted with oil as a carrier for easy absorption. There are two main parts to the healing oil that derives from cannabis – CBD and THC – and the beauty of CBD is that (unlike THC) it is it’s not a psychoactive ingredient and it won’t produce a high sensation or have mind-altering effects.

How does CBD work?

What many people are now coming to realise through recent scientific research is that we all have a cannabinoid system too and that the natural ingredients in CBD can balance this particular system to help regulate our daily functions.

Managing anxiety


CBD and Serotonin are like two peas in a pod. Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness. This hormone impacts your entire body. It enables brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other*. Serotonin also helps with sleeping, eating, and digestion.

CBD can change the way your brain’s receptors respond to serotonin. Remove stress and decrease the interruptive side-effects of anxiety like insomnia and an increased heart rate – helping make your anxiety manageable.
