WHAT IS CBD? 

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is the second most abundant cannabinoid found in the cannabis or hemp plant. Alive Market CBD is extracted from the mature female flowering buds of the hemp plant. Hemp is cannabis sativa L. that is bred to contain less than a 0.3% concentration of THC, meaning it is non-intoxicating and will not get you "high". 

HOW DOES CBD WORK? 

All mammals are born with an endocanabinoid system! In fact our bodies naturally produces endogenous cannibinoids called endocannabinoids that bind to receptors called CB1 and CB2. In fact, many humans and pets are endocannabinoid deficient. Luckily, just like you can supplement your body with vitamin supplements, you can supplement it with the cannabinoids in CBD! Whether cannabinoids come from our own bodies or we get them from hemp CBD supplements (phyto-cannabinoids), cannabinoids help bring the body into homeostasis.

CBD is one of the 113 cannabinoids, which are lipid-based neurotransmitters, that exist within the cannabis plant. They act upon the cannabinoid receptors that exist throughout the body in the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a system that exists in everyone’s body, just like the endocrine system or the digestive system. CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, which are mostly found throughout our central nervous and immune systems, to promote homeostasis in the body.

WHY CBD? 

Humans and animals bodies are built to use cannabinoids! Adding CBD to your lifestyle and diet can balance out your entire body. Alive Market takes an organic, plant based approach to CBD wellness products to enhance your wellbeing, mood, and everyday life.
