The Basics

Cannabis Plant

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a therapeutic compound found in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. Unlike THC (another well-known compound found in cannabis plants), CBD has no psychoactive properties, and won’t make you feel “high”. With over 60 types of Cannabinoids that can be derived from Cannabis plants, CBD is one of the most powerful, offering health benefits that help curb anxiety, manage pain, reduce inflammation, regulate sleep patterns, uplift your overall mood, and much more.

How do Cannabinoids Interact with My Body?

Cannabinoids and terpenes insert themselves into special receptors in the body. These receptors are part of the Endocannabinoid system. This system, which helps regulate many bodily functions — including appetite, sleep, anxiety level, and cognition — is intimately tied to the nervous system and immune system.

What Role do Terpenes Play in CBD?

Terpenes are the essential oils of the cannabis plant that are the cause of aromatics and taste. They play a vital role when it comes to the differentiation of effect in various strains. Some terpenes promote relaxation, while others may energize or help you focus. Considered a cousin to cannabinoids, terpenes are also found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants.

The synergistic aka “Entourage Effect” of infusing CBD with terpenes enhances the benefits of the plant’s individual components.

When selecting a BLNCD CBD Oil tincture, the terpene blend is what will help you identify the ideal product to fit your specific needs.

What Dosage Should I take?

Everyone is different when it comes to CBD dosing. Each individual’s endocannabinoid system is wholly unique, so it may take a bit of experimentation to find the perfect balance. We recommend starting at a low dose and working your way up if necessary — some people find a small dose works wonders, while others need a much higher dose to experience the desired effect. With consistent, daily use over time, your endocannabinoid system becomes more sensitive and receptive, which results in greater beneficial effects.
