How does CBD work?
CBD is pharmacologically active. In other words, it can bind to various receptors within the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and interact with them in a way that causes physical changes as a result.
CBD has a highly diverse ECS receptor profile. Therefore, it exhibits a broad spectrum of action as it affects neural pathways in the spinal cord, the brain, the hippocampus, and the amygdala. Many of the benefits from CBD are not yet fully understood, but are likely due to complex pharmacological interactions that point to cannabinoid (CB) receptors 1 and 2.
Both CB1 and CB2 receptors are directly affected by CBD. The majority of CB1 receptors are found in the hippocampus and amygdala, but they also span across pain pathways of the spinal cord and the brain. These areas are part of a system that controls memory, fear perception, the fight-or-flight response, pain sensation, and emotion. CB2 receptors are found in immune cells, lymph tissue, and peripheral nerve terminals, where anti-inflammatory responses are activated by CBD.
CBD is also a neurotransmitter modulator that inhibits reuptake of Serotonin, Dopamine, and GABA neurotransmitters. This increases neurotransmitter availability within post-synaptic neurons to enhance serotonergic activity, nerve-impulse transmission, and cell-to-cell communication. Neurotransmitter balance plays a key role in the regulation of normal body functions, including mood balance, emotional outlook, sleep/wake cycle, and memory function.
Is CBD the same as marijuana?
Cannabis sativa is a plant species that includes both the hemp plant and the marijuana plant.
Hemp is a variety of cannabis that contains significant levels of cannabidiol (CBD) but only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component associated with the "high" produced by marijuana.
Hemp-based cannabis contains 0.3% or less THC, so it is very different from marijuana. Our CBD is zero THC.
Will I get high if I take CBD?
No, CBD is non-intoxicating and cannot cause psychoactive effects.
- Can CBD show up on a drug test?
- You may test positive on a drug screening that specifically tests for THC if you are taking a CBD product that also contains THC, however minuscule the amount. It is not advisable to use a Full Spectrum CBD formula if you are randomly drug screened for this reason.
We only carry Broad Spectrum THC free CBD,
How much CBD should I take?
Knowing which strength CBD formula you need is really simple to figure out!
Firstly, the varying milligram amounts signify low (250-500mg), mid-range (1000mg), high (2500mg), and maximum (5000mg) CBD dose concentration. Each unique formula provides a higher dose of cannabidiol — the active ingredient in our products — per 1 mL dropper.
250mg pocket size 15 mL formula
1.0mg per drop (16.7mg/1 mL dropper)
500mg concentrated 30 mL formula
1.0mg per drop (16.7mg/1 mL dropper)
1000mg ultra concentrated 30 mL formula
2.0mg per drop (33.3mg/1 mL dropper)
2500mg super concentrated 30 mL formula
5.0mg per drop (83.3mg/1 mL dropper)
5000mg hyper concentrated formula
10.0mg per drop (166.7mg/1 mL dropper)
Gradually increasing and moderating your CBD intake to find the most effective daily dose is called titration. This process ensures that you are taking the right amount of CBD, based on your individual response to the formula.
Begin by taking ¼ mL to ½ mL CBD oil (measured using the included graduated dropper). Wait four to six hours between doses. Increase the number of drops per dose as needed until effects are apparent.
CBD maintains an excellent safety profile that shows it is generally well-tolerated, even in very high doses. That means it’s safe to vary your daily CBD intake to find what feels right for you over time. Usage statistics show that most people take an average of about 1 mL CBD in their preferred strength daily.
How much CBD you take may differ from that of others depending on your individual wellness concerns. Some CBD users, for example, only need to take CBD as needed while others take CBD two or more times daily for best results.
When will I see benefits from CBD?
Most people taking CBD for the very first time report noticeable benefits within just one or two days. The time it takes for you to see benefits will vary from that of other CBD users, because everybody is unique. CBD benefits should not take longer than two weeks to become apparent. Only you know how much CBD is helping you to feel better.
CBD may not be right for everyone. Stop use and talk to your doctor if you experience no benefit whatsoever, or, if you experience an adverse reaction after taking CBD.
What's in our CBD?
Nature Pure Life's CBD products contain a plant-derived medicine called cannabidiol, or CBD for short. CBD is a non-intoxicating pharmacologically active biochemical that is extracted from cannabis sativa.We use pure MCT oil made from organic coconuts to act as a carrier that ensures maximum absorption of cannabinoid phytonutrients.No other additives, flavors, or preservatives are used.
How does your manufacturer process your CBD extracts?
Our Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Extract are made using supercritical CO2 gas extraction. This inert extraction method does not require heat or solvents, so it protects the integrity of the entire spectrum of phytonutrients — synergistic cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and other medicinal compounds — derived from cannabis.
Are your CBD products 3rd-party tested?
Our manufacturer uses an independent, 3rd-party laboratory to scientifically test every batch of CBD as a part of the manufacturing process! The facilities they use to test our products utilize gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in order to verify the levels of cannabidiol and other phytonutrients in our premium CBD extracts, so you get exactly what we say is in each bottle.
Can I take CBD with my prescription medication?
CBD is very safe to take on its own. In certain instances, CBD may interfere with the way the body metabolizes certain prescription medications in the liver. This interaction potentially reduces the effectiveness of these medications over time.Talk to your doctor before adding CBD to your wellness plan if you are concurrently taking any prescription medications. Your doctor may need to monitor your individual response to the combination of CBD with your prescribed drugs and adjust your dose accordingly.
