At Cedar Creek, we have perfected the art of sub-critical CO2 extraction. This process ensures the best and most effective extraction method for our tinctures and cannabis-related products. CO2 extraction is non-toxic and is used to capture the cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant - the active compounds that render numerous health benefits. One of the most prominent cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa strains that has been gaining a lot of attention of late, is cannabidiol, or CBD. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not result in the "high" that is commonly associated with cannabis. CBD has been well researched and is considered a supplement that may assist with a wide range of ailments, people have found relief from chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety by using CBD. CBD has also gained attention for its potential to ease ailments related to the nervous system, amongst others. Research suggests that CBD may assist in treating neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Drawids Syndrome, and multiple sclerosis, to name a few.
Including CBD oil into ones diet has shown to elevate moods in many cases, this is no surprise as CBD can activate the release of serotonin, as it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. Serotonin is our “happy hormone”, which helps mitigate and offsets anxiety and stress, which is commonly associated with a release of cortisol and catecholamines. CBD can render a calming effect on the central nervous system as it interacts with our endocannabinoid system and is absorbed into our body. Not only will CBD assist your overall health, but it will leave you feeling good, too!
