Let's clear up some of the confusion

From Parents Magazine to natural health blogs, there’s a lot of buzz about CBD oil - so let’s clear up some of the confusion and keep things simple!

The basic answer to CBD and the way it works in the body?

Compounds in the cannabis plant interact with special receptors and together produce healthy benefits for the entire body. Organic CBD oil is safe for every age, and a great supplement for the entire family.

What is CBD Doing Inside the Body?

No matter the source, both phytocannabinoid and endocannabinoid interact with the same special receptors. These receptors are littered on different cells all over the body in areas including the brain, GI tract, tonsils, liver, pancreas, thymus, white blood cells and more. This network of receptors is called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
It’s crazy to think that this system exists inside the body and that a compound from the cannabis plant can interact naturally to promote health in a variety of ways.

But, as more studies are conducted, researchers predict that the Endocannabinoid System will prove to be incredibly important in determining the adaptability of all the other systems in the body.

  • Why is CBD helpful?

    Endocannabinoid receptors are in every major system in the body (cardiovascular, digestive, etc.) playing a huge role in how well those systems function and interact with each other. An easy way to discuss cannabinol’s role in these systems is through the word balance.

    CBD helps to promote systemic balance because it acts a “modulator.” By definition, a modulator controls and modifies. The Endocannabinoid System modulates a variety of the tissues and receptors throughout the body, promoting balance.

    For example, in the brain, there is a receptor on the amygdala, the part of the brain that is famous for symptoms of anxiety. When the body perceives “stress,” this part of the brain experiences a chemical cascade that can trigger an anxiety attack. With proper levels of cannabidiol, however, the ECD can monitor chemical activity and prevent an over-reaction to the perceived stressor.

    The Endocannabinoid System works throughout many processes of the body. When a bacterial/viral/fungal invader enters the body, for example, the body will mount an immune response to prevent the invader from spreading or turning into an infection. Due to many factors, it is possible the body can have either an under-reaction or over-reaction to the foreign invader. The ECS, however, with proper levels of cannabidiol, can help support the body to mount the correct response to the potential infection due to receptors on different white blood cells, like Dectin-1.

  • Who is CBD for?

    Every person on planet Earth has an Endocannabinoid System. To function properly, our systems need cannabidiol to communicate efficiently with receptors, whether this CBD is made internally or taken from a plant.

    So, who is hemp derived organic CBD oil for? Simply put - everybody.

  • What Symptoms?

    Our thinking in the modern world is based upon the pharmacological philosophy of taking a “pill for an ill.” As the world of wellness continues to grow, the new philosophy is about prevention - a focus on optimal well-being promotion instead of waiting to get sick. When we apply this thought process to CBD and what we currently know about the Endocannabinoid System, Rooted Apothecary firmly believes that organic CBD oil should be your multivitamin.

    With that said, here are some symptoms that can benefit from the addition of phytocannabidiol:

    • Autoimmune – Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis, Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
    • Sports Injury – Muscle Stiffness, Muscle Soreness, Muscle Cramping, Joint Pain, Tendonitis, Tendonosis
    • Mood – Anxiety, Depression, Mood Swings, Bi-Polar
    • Brain – Brain Fog, ADD, ADHD, OCD, Memory, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain-Barre, Sleep Difficulties, Insomnia
    • Hormones – RIrregular Cycle, Painful Cycle, Fertility Struggles
    • Skin – Eczema, Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Dry Skin, Rashes, Aging Spots, Wrinkles, Moles, Skin Tags
    • Kids – Colic, Teething, Ear Infections, Sleeping Difficulties

    CBD oil is not a cure, it is a wellness tool that helps to support your body and its ability to reach homeostasis, or balance. Regular use is necessary to build up the Endocannabinoid System to support your body.

  • Is CBD Oil just Marijuana Using a Different Name?

    To be clear, hemp is different than marijuana. While both plants contain CBD and the psychoactive compound THC, they each have certain characteristics:


    Hemp Marijuana
    CBD High Low
    THC Low High
    Psycho-Active No Yes

    Because Rooted Apothecary CBD oil is derived from the hemp plant, there are no psycho-active effects and it is legal to use and ship to all 50 states.

  • What is the Right Dose?

    The right dose depends on your individual health goals. Do you feel good and want to keep it that way? Are you struggling with an autoimmune disease and need a wide range of support? Dosage will vary for those individuals with different treatment plans.

    Aside from dosage, it important to remember that organic CBD oil is not a cure. However, we believe it should be a part of your wellness routine. Actually, with the available science, it needs to be a part of your whole family’s routine.

    Here are a couple suggestions for dosing.

    • - Start slow and track the changes. Take 5-10mg orally daily for a week if you’re new to CBD. Double your starting dosage at 5 days at the earliest if you’re not seeing changes.
    • - Experiment with delivery. Is the topical cream not taking away your joint pain? Try adding the tincture to help the symptoms from the inside out.
    • - Start topically for kids. Just to be safe, start topically with your little ones before using any oral tinctures. Already bought the tincture? Just put a drop on their skin for a day or two and observe.
  • Can I Have too Much or Too Little?

    Unfortunately, there is no test to measure levels of cannabinoid in the body. This would make things simple, but it is not currently available. Just like vitamin D3, thyroid values or cholesterol, a test could potentially show you if you have too much or too little cannabinoids for optimal function. Until then, the best way to find out is through self-experimentation and carefully tracking your progress with your health goals. As you dose your way up, find your level of optimal health and then work your way back down to taking less phytocannabinoids while still maintaining your goals.
