How Does CBD Work?

CBD is one of more than 100 cannabinoids—natural chemical constituents—found in the cannabis sativa plant. Over the past few years, CBD has become widely recognized for an array of potential health benefits due to its effect on the body’s endocannabinoid system, which affects stress, the immune system, and pain sensitivity, among many other factors.

What are the benefits of CBD?

Skin is part of the Endocannabinoid System. Skin contains cannabinoid receptors. Anecdotal studies suggest cannabidiol (CBD) can affect functions in various parts of the skin, including: Epidermis – skin barrier and protection, health, and appearance; sensation; immune support; Sebaceous Gland activity; Hair Follicle health--loss/ growth/ maintenance; skin irritation, swelling and itchiness.

What time of day should I use CBD products?

CBD products can be used any time of day. In fact, we recommend adding BLESSWELL’s CBD-enhanced products into your morning AND night routines.

Does CBD Have Intoxicating Effects?

CBD products are non-intoxicating. Commercially available CBD is derived from hemp. While hemp and marijuana are technically the same cannabis sativa plant, hemp contains 0.3% or less of THC, the psychoactive chemical responsible for the “high” in marijuana.

What is Broad Spectrum CBD?

Broad spectrum  CBD products contain all or most of the plant material. Many believe that the natural presence of a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds is superior to CBD alone, producing a positive “entourage effect”. The Entourage Effect is the results (the effect) produced from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in hemp derived CBD. The Entourage Effect refers to the beneficial effect of all these compounds working together as opposed to just one or two of these compounds working in isolation.

Can I legally receive CBD in the mail?

Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill explicitly legalizes interstate commerce of hemp and hemp products. However, a few state laws add their own restrictions, so it’s best to run a quick search to confirm the latest laws in your state.
