What is CBD?
First, it is important to understand exactly what CBD is. beam makes a point to ensure their consumers know exactly what it is, how it works with your body, and how to use it. CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring essential oil that is extracted from the hemp plant and works with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS); a fancy term for a complex series of cell signals and receptors triggered by cannabinoids. The ECS regulates and affects a large number of functions such as sleep, mood, appetite, muscle development, and memory.
Supplementation with different phytocannabinoids like CBD can help the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, gastrointestinal system, and connective tissue by attaching to cannabinoid receptors throughout these systems. CBD can target specific systems in the body to ease discomfort and induce a sense of calm.
beam specifically uses a proprietary extraction method that ensures their CBD is THC-free. This is especially important because THC is the chemical responsible for marijuana’s psychological effects. So, without THC, beam’s CBD delivers the same relaxing qualities — but without the psychological high and other after-effects. beam also uses third-party testing to ensure that all of their CBD is of the highest quality.
