Getting Started with CBD

What is it? How does it work?

At Phytomana, our goal is to simplify CBD in a way that’s easy to understand, so you can enjoy the benefits of this incredible plant compound. 

Let us first introduce you to the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Everyone has an ECS. Its main function is to create homeostasis in our bodies: layman’s terms, balance. 

The ECS is full of receptors (CB1 and CB2 to name a few) that love connecting with cannabinoids! CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and they play a crucial role in regulating mood, appetite, and pain perception. On the other hand, CB2 receptors are mainly found in immune cells, and they help regulate inflammation and immune response.

Our body already produces several natural cannabinoids known as endocannabinoids - “endo” meaning “internal” or “within”. 

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid - “phyto” meaning “of a plant”. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most widely studied cannabinoids derived from the Hemp plant. 

What CBD Products Should I Use?

In order for CBD to work, you need to get it into your body so it can interact with your ECS.

At Phytomana, we focus on offering the quickest and most effective results: ingestibles and easily absorbed topicals. 

We use nano-infused CBD to help maximize absorption rate and maximize results!
