WHAT IS CBD?

WHAT IS  CBD?

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis and hemp plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is non psychoactive. This means, fortunately for some and unfortunately for others, you won’t get the ‘high’ associated with cannabis. You can use this compound in a variety of different ways from tinctures and capsules to bath bombs and balms.

So why take it? Well, CBD among other cannabinoids interact with what’s called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system has a role in regulating cognitive functions and processes such as, sleep, appetite, mood, memory, skin and nerve function. This system is active in your body as you produce endocannabinoids naturally. CBD is believed to act as a buffer and help prevent the breakdown of these endocannabinoids.

In short, the ECS plays a big part in keeping your internal functions stable. So why not give it the best chance it’s got, with some Country Boys products!

 

MCT OIL AND WHY WE USE IT

 

Our CBD is made from responsibly grown; CO2 extracted hemp oil mixed with a carrier called MCT oil. MCT stands for medium-chain triglyceride and is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. These naturally occurring fatty acids contain medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and have many benefits linked to the way your body processes these fats. 

And why we use it? Well, cannabinoids are fat soluble and are more effective when consumed with fat. MCT oil contains saturated fat which helps the body absorb cannabinoids. Using MCT oil allows for a relatively rapid release. The oil is directly metabolized into energy allowing your body to burn those fats and put the cannabinoids they hold to use right away.
