Depending on how much you know about CBD, cannabinoids and hemp extract, you may be intrigued by this health supplement and interested in trying it. But with all the varying news coverage out there, you could easily be confused.  Here are some easy answers to the most common questions:

Why does hemp extract work?

Hemp extract comes from the aerial parts of the plant - stems, leaves, flowers. It's here that we find beneficial phytocompounds called phytocannabinoids.  One phytocannabinoid in particular- CBD or cannabidiol - gets a lot of attention for it's benefits to the human body. That is because CBD and the other phytocannabinoids integrate into an internal system called the Endocannabinoid System. The purpose of this network of receptors in the bodies of all mammals is to keep them functioning and in good health. Our body can produce its own cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) to help keep everything in balance, but external toxins, poor diet, and different lifestyle factors can affect how they work in the body, so supplementing with a phytocannabinoid is an easy way to keep up good health.

How does Charlotte’s Web work? 

CBD can assist in many healthy processes within the body, and pairing cannabidiol with its fellow phytocannabinoids —all naturally occurring in hemp — can support the body even further. Scientists named this “The Entourage Effect.” This means that while taking CBD on its own can help support health, additional phytocompounds work synergistically to maximize the positive beneifits within CBD in the body.

Will it work for me?

Yes. The reason we can say this with such certainty is because of some basic human biology.  Hemp extract and phytocannabinoids integrate with our internal Endocannabinoid System. This network of receptors exists in our immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs to support major bodily processes. Hemp's phytocannabinoids, like CBD, fit into the cannabinoid receptors of the Endocannabinoid System, much like a key fits into a lock to "unlock" health benefits.
