What is a CBD Concentrate?

Given the obsession over finding the most potent marijuana strains, it was only a matter of time before the industry found a way to pack as many cannabinoids into a substance as possible.

What Are Cannabis Topicals and How Do They Work?

New methods of cannabis consumption are bringing us further away from the notion that marijuana belongs solely in a bong or joint – or that it has to get you high, for that matter.

CBD Oil for Inflammation

Inflammation occurs as a natural protective response when the body is harmed. There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute inflammation occurs following an injury, infection, or illness. The immune system unleashes immune cells to the affected area to protect it, causing redness and swelling. Chronic inflammation refers to a prolonged inflammatory response in the body. When inflammation lingers, it can detrimentally impact tissues and organs due to the increased production of free radicals, which results in oxidative stress, an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals. Inflammation and oxidative stress are involved in many diseases. Chronic inflammation may [...]
