Science of CBD

Cannabinoid Receptors

Cannabinoid receptors sit on the surface of cells and "listen" to conditions outside of the cell. They transmit information about changing conditions to the inside of the cell, kick-starting the appropriate cellular response.

Our products focus on the a major receptor: CB2. CB2 receptors are more abundant outside of the nervous system in places like the immune system. CB2 receptors interact with our PCR Hemp Oil, promoting comfort for the consumer.


Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds secreted by flowers that provide relief to an array of symptoms including pain, nausea, anxiety and inflammation. Cannabinoids work by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids which activate to maintain internal stability and health.


The prefix Phyto means plant. Phytocannabinoids are derived from plants. These compounds are what make up our PhytoCannabinoid Rich (PCR) Hemp Oil. Our hemp oil also contains other naturally occurring compounds, and flavonoids, this is done to create the entourage effect, providing a full spectrum of benefits for the end user.
