What is our source?
Hemp oil CBD is from the hemp plant, not cannabis. There could be 0.3% THC, which is legally allowed in all 50 states. This trace amount will not get you high. (Kannaway pure has 0% THC.)
How does CBD work?
Endocannabinoid System (ECS) – which exists in Humans and Pets. This system has been recently (1991) recognized as an important modulatory system in the function of brain, endocrine, and immune tissues. It appears to play a very important regulatory role in the secretion of hormones related to reproductive functions and response to stress. We have receptors called CB1 & CB2, which are the key players in the ECS. They are located on the surface of many types of cells in your body.
