Learn About CBD

What exactly is CBD?

Cannabidoil (CBD) is a chemical compound from the cannabinoid family that naturally occurs in the cannabis plant. Scientists have isolated over 100 different types of cannabidoids in cannabis.

THC is the best known due to its psychoactive properties; that’s what gives you the “high” sensation. CBD, on the other hand, gives you the therapeutic benefits without feeling the psychoactive effect.

This compound interacts with our body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the system that regulates the body’s natural homeostasis moods, sleep, pain, immune function, amongst many other functions. CBD does not alter the functions of the ECS, but rather it enhances the productiveness of the system; which gives the desired effects.

The endocannabinoid receptors affect many parts of our body:

  • Muscles
  • Skin
  • Gut 
  • Spleen
  • Liver
  • Heart
  • Kidneys
  • Bones
  • Blood vessels
  • Lymph cells
  • Reproductive organs

The Power of CBD

Inside all of us are endocannabinoid receptors. These special parts of our biological system that work within the superhighway of our central nervous system. CB1 and CBD2 receptors throughout the body stimulate the endocannabinoid system, which promotes homeostasis, and then does something awesome: it reduces pain and decreases inflammation. Whatever way you take CBD, the health effects are incredible whether it’s topically for skin and connective tissue problems, or orally via a gummy or dropper. 



Love that cooling, refreshing sensation you get from eucalyptus, mint, rosemary, tea tree, and mugwort? This is due to the terpene eucalyptol, which is also known as cineol.

Research has explored many links between eucalyptol and antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.


Research shows eucalyptol’s impact against specific strains of bacteria. These include Enterobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Serratia marcescens, and Staphylococcus aureus.

Resistant to many antibiotic medications, Staphylococcus aureus can contribute towards various conditions, such as impetigo, skin abscesses, wound infections, and folliculitis.


A 2012 study explored eucalyptol’s effect on mood and memory. As participants tackled mathematical problems, researches diffused rosemary essential oil into the room in different quantities. They found a positive link between the number of correct answers and higher blood levels of eucalyptol. This could be an exciting potential for many struggling with cognition and possibly Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease symptoms accumulate within the brain, caused by beta-amyloid plaque proteins. These proteins block cell-to-cell signaling at synapses. They also are believed to trigger inflammation. Much research has been devoted to studying eucalyptol and brain inflammation caused by amyloid-beta plaques.

Antioxidant activity

Science shows that antioxidants help neutralize free agents within the body. This prevents DNA damage through oxidation.

Studies show eucalyptol exhibiting antioxidant properties. A 2011 Toxicology and Industrial Health published study gave eucalyptol to rats exposed to persistent environmental pollutants. The researchers found it helped oxidative stress within the rats.

Many also use eucalyptol for sinus, respiratory, and digestive health. People also use it for insecticide purposes.

Cell death

A2002 paper published within Oncology Reports explored eucalyptol’s ability to induce apoptosis and help suppress leukemia cell growth.

Apoptosis is known as cell death and is required for a healthy functioning body. Cells essentially die to make room for new cells.

Cannabis Strains with eucalyptol

Some high-eucalyptol strains include Super Silver Haze, Girl Scout Cookies, Headband, and Bubba Kush.
