About Core Roots Organic CBD Oil Products
Hi! My name is Cory, and I founded Core Roots CBD because I believe in the power of hemp.
As any athlete will tell you, competing takes a toll on our bodies – sore muscles, painful injuries, and insufficient recovery time causes aches and pains on and off the slopes. As a sponsored snowboarder and instructor for many years, those difficulties got in the way of my performance – how could I get back on the board when my body was still reeling from the last meet?
This experience is not uncommon among athletes, so when I noticed early on that some snowboarders I knew seemed to handle these struggles with stride, I needed to know how. How did they do what I do with much less soreness and pain? I asked them how they did it. They introduced me to three magical letters – CBD. I soon started to use CBD myself for post-meet recovery and to address my sore muscles. I’ve never looked back.
Fast forward a few years to my day job as a financial advisor (far from the slopes, for sure!). At the office, I regularly read through materials related to companies formulating medications some of which using CBD. One morning, information about GW Pharma came across my desk. This was years before the biotech-turned-pharmaceutical company brought cannabis-based medication Epidiolex to the U.S. market. Seeing a major pharmaceutical company recognize CBD’s medical potential opened my eyes to just how game-changing this incredible plant can be. This confirmed everything I witnessed while snowboarding all those years before: CBD can help, and thanks to GW Pharma, the research was there to prove it.
It was at that moment that I decided to dive into the world of CBD head-first.
I completed coursework at Cannabis Training University, where I underwent specialty training in medicine, extraction, cooking, growing, and operations as it pertains to the cannabis sativa plant. From that coursework, I learned what makes CBD an effective, safe, and quality medicine, and immediately got to work producing the right organic CBD oil products for my customers.
Core Roots CBD stands firmly by three points of quality. First, we source CBD from hemp grown right here at home in Kentucky, so we know exactly what’s in our products and where they’re coming from. Second, our CBD is extracted using CO2 extraction methods, which don’t use harsh solvents or chemicals. Finally, we use full-spectrum CBD in products whenever possible, so you can benefit from the whole plant and the “entourage effect” that comes along with other cannabinoids and terpenes in the industrial hemp plant.
The result is Core Roots CBD, the line of organic product I’m proud to share with friends, family, and customers who become a part of our family.
How Does CBD Work?
Every mammal has an endocannabinoid system!
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa plants. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system found in all mammals, helping to achieve homeostasis in humans and animals alike.
Core Roots products are derived from industrial hemp. By law, our products have .3% or less THC, trace amounts that do not produce the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis.
Our bodies have what’s called an endocannabinoid system. CBD works because of this system. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within the body. All mammals have this system. These receptors help regulate numerous functions such as sleep, mood, pain and inflammation, to name just a few. Like other systems within our bodies, our endocannabinoid system can become depleted and may need a supplement or a boost, just like an iron or a vitamin D deficiency.
What Does The Research Say About CBD?
Research has shown that CBD may have significant medical benefits without producing any intoxicating effects (the typical “high” or “stoned” feeling). The non-intoxicating nature of hemp-derived CBD makes it an appealing option for people looking to address a wide range of conditions, or who simply use it to relax.
Studies regarding the health benefits of both CBD and marijuana are conducted at prestigious institutions around the world. Promising research out of countries like Canada and Israel dive extensively into both cannabis and CBD’s medical properties.
Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions because of these important properties:
- Anti-inflammatory properties: CBD can help reduce inflammation in the body. Some people find relief from arthritis, IBS/IBD, and other pain and discomfort caused by inflammation, as well as inflammatory conditions such as eczema or rosacea.
- Anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties: Researchers believe that CBD binds to the same receptors that activate serotonin in the brain, making it a possible remedy for those with anxiety or who have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- Sleep-encouraging properties: CBD may play a role in regulating non-REM sleep duration, which leads some Core Roots CBD customers to use our products to help combat insomnia.
- Antioxidant and neuroprotective properties: Studies have suggested that CBD could reduce damage to the body and brain. Some Core Roots customers use CBD as part of their regular health and wellness routine.
