What Exactly is CBD?

What Is CBD

You have heard all the buzz about CBD; that is likely what led you here. And while you may have read many testimonials and first-hand accounts of the ways that CBD can benefit your health, you could still be wondering “how?”. How can the same oil be used for managing seizures, inflammation, pain and anxiety?

The reason is that CBD works with a larger system in your body- the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is made up of tiny neurotransmitters and receptors. This ECS helps balance our bodies’ major functions like sleep, digestion, mood and more. The body uses endocannabinoids to help maintain bodily homeostasis by identifying irregularities and correcting them. It is said that CBD derived from the hemp plant supports our bodies' already-existing ECS by stimulating it to create more natural cannabinoids and enabling the existing ones to last longer before they break down. This could help increase our bodies’ effectiveness at repairing a plethora of ailments and promote better function. So to put it simply, CBD helps your body help itself.

CBD oil can be purchased in full spectrum form, like our Butler Black, Butler Gold, and Butler Bark, which retains other major cannabinoids during processing like CBG and CBC, and can work more efficiently in your body by leveraging what is called the “entourage effect”; all the cannabinoids working together for a maximum result.

For those that want CBD only without any other cannabinoids or traces of THC, isolate CBD may be the way to go. Butler White is our isolate product, and made from pure CBD extracted from our full spectrum oil.

There is new research coming out almost daily on the science behind what CBD is able to do for the body, and with each new discovery more excitement builds for this quickly-growing industry!
