Healthy Not High
CBD oil (cannabidiol hemp oil) is a healthy option because it not only offers many benefits, it is also completely non-addictive and produces no psychoactive effects. This means CBD can be taken safely by anyone of any age without affecting mental capacity or creating dependence. It is especially useful to those trying to keep fit, pursuing sports or training.

Hemp oil is a super-charger for your endocannabinoid system (ECS)
The ECS (endocannabinoid system) is an essential component of a healthy body. A neural network, the ECS is present throughout your body’s central and peripheral nervous systems. It has “receptors” throughout the body, even down to the mitochondrial level. These receptors (the main ones are named CB1 and CB2) are the starting point for a number of control systems that regulate many bodily functions. These receptors have special “keyed” interfaces to which both natural and hemp-extract cannabinoid molecules can attach and “plug in.”
CBD mimics the action – or as scientists would say, it works as a memetic – of the body’s own natural cannabinoids, primarily a substance named 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) which affects the functionality of the immune system, appetite regulation and pain management. The CBD in hemp oil acts in a positive way on these receptors.
