"Studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep."
Harvard Medical School
"CBD’s ability to calm is perhaps its most popular effect and the reason its use is so widespread."
"CBD is believed to relieve pain by interacting with the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system."
CBD is most commonly used to promote emotional wellness, working as an aide for anxiety, sleep and pain.
CBD affects your Endocannabinoid system, particularly Anadamide, which is produced by the nervous system to stimulate an uptake in serotonin in the brain. Serotonin improves mood. When your mood is low, you might be dealing with a low amount of serotonin. An increase in serotonin can correspond to an increase in feelings of well-being, reduced anxiety, stress and improved sleep.
It all circles back to the natural Endocannabinoid system in your body — a healthy Endocannabinoids system helps with a happier you. CBD also aides as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic.
CBD oil has been used to aide wellness, anxiety and pain for many years. Modern science continues to study the positive impacts of cannabinoids on the human Endocannabinoid system. As far back as the 16th century, cannabis was being farmed across Europe. Hemp was so valuable to society, that in 1533 Henry VIII mandated all farmers grow hemp.
In the 1600s, hemp cultivation became popular to North American colonies. The colony of Virginia even created laws to mandate the cultivation of hemp by farmers. Massachusetts and Connecticut passed similar laws shortly after.
While hemp based CBD does contain certain cannabinoids, hemp is not marijuana. Marijuana is high in the psychoactive compound THC, which is what generates a feeling of “high.” Hemp is not marijuana. Although hemp does contain some cannabinoids, it has negligible amounts of THC. In fact, in order to be legally cultivated, hemp is required to contain less than 0.3% THC. Hemp based CBD primarily interacts with the human Endocannabinoid system in promoting wellness, along with improving sleep cycles and anxiety.
Note: most industrial hemp is grown for its fiber and contains relatively small concentrations of cannabinoids (fiber used for rope, clothing etc.) This makes the majority of industrial hemp undesirable for CBD oil. Unlike many CBD products on the market that use industrial hemp, the CBD oil in Romie products is made from a CBD-rich strain known as PCR hemp. PCR is short for phytocannabinoid rich — it contains as much as 10X the concentration of CBD as generic industrial hemp and only negligible amounts of THC. It does not cause a high.
Your endocannabinoid system helps maintain balance throughout the body. Endocannabinoids are a network of neurotransmitters produced by your nervous system that connect with your body's cells. Their job is to tell cells to adjust their activities. This can include changing how cells react to other neurotransmitters.
CBD is one of 100+ hemp-based compounds known as phytocannabinoids. These compounds are extracted from hemp and used in a variety of products. Phytocannabinoids interact with the receptors connected to your endocannabinoid system. Millions of people use CBD every day to support relaxation, mood, skin and joint health and sleep.
