CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of 100+ compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid with the ability to imitate our already produced endocannabinoids to bind to cannabinoid receptors within our Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
WHY TAKE CBD?
CBD and full-spectrum extracts are used by many people for many different reasons. Some have specific issues and are seeking alternative support while others simply take CBD to support overall wellness. Some other benefits of CBD have been noted as a sense of calmness and focus, aiding in exercise recovery, support for a good night’s rest, relief from everyday stressors.
CBD is just one of 100+ compounds found in the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum, or whole-plant extracts, contain all terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, proteins, and minerals from the hemp plant. These compounds work together to multiply the potential benefits when using full-spectrum infused products and supplements. Scientists refer to this as the Entourage Effect and have found there truly is strength in numbers when it comes to the power of these plant based supplements.
All of Nature’s Highway products and supplements are infused with full-spectrum extracts. We use every bit of goodness we can from our Carolina grown hemp.

Full spectrum cbd products must have trace amounts of all primary and secondary cannabinoids. Many of our products are full spectrum.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of millions of cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies that help to regulate many of our bodily systems to maintain balance, or homeostasis. While almost every organ in the human body has cannabinoid receptors, they are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system. ECS cannabinoid receptors interpret conditions outside of our body’s cells and inform the cells about changing conditions. Our body creates endocannabinoids that bind to these receptors to carry out a specific purpose in efforts to restore balance.
The ECS is comprised of three key pieces; cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes. Receptors interpret conditions outside of our body’s cells and inform the cells about changing conditions. Endocannabinoids are molecules that are created to serve a specific purpose and carry out that purpose by binding to our cannabinoid receptors. Enzymes simply break down endocannabinoids once they’ve carried out their purpose.
Will CBD get me high?
No way! While Cannabis plants share similar properties, CBD and THC are different compounds found within these plants. Unlike THC, CBD from hemp does not produce the psychoactive effect, or “high” associated with marijuana use.
