FOOD AS MEDICINE
CBD is one of at least 113 active chemical compounds called cannabinoids in cannabis (and hemp). These Cannabinoids are molecules that block or stimulate endocannabinoid receptors found in the body. Our bodies have an extensive endocannabinoid system that has wide ranging effects on the immune system, cardiovascular system, nervous system and beyond. Pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown CBD to have a range of effects that may be therapeutically useful, including anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety properties. Adding CBD to coffee along with MCT Oil Powder makes for a fatty iced latte and counteracts any jitters you would normally feel from coffee! The Select Lavender CBD is our favorite for mellowing out and includes passionflower and chamomile which act as nervines to aid in deep relaxation!
