Collection: Releaf Pain Relief cream and lotion

Cannabinoid receptors are involved in a series of processes inside the body including regulation of pain sensation, inflammation, mood and stress.  These receptors can be activated by the endocannabinoid system (produced by the body), as well as plant cannabinoids – like those found in hemp or cannabis.

Receptors are grouped into two main categories – CB1 and CB2.  CB1 acts mostly on the central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are part of the immune system.  These receptors play a role in CNS recovery and plasticity, as well as response to environmental insults (hello, training!).  Additional actions of these receptors include modulation of inflammation, immune response and perception of pain.

The Canadian government has released the 2018 Cannabis Act and the 2018 Industrial Hemp Act, which outline the laws and regulations related to cannabis growth, production, distribution, sale and consumption.  These acts now allow the government to differentiate between THC (psychoactive properties) and CBD.  As such, products that contain less than 0.3% THC (like ours!) have no restrictions for the above activities….meaning it is perfectly legal within Canada.

*While CBD is legal in many countries around the world we strongly advise you educate yourself regarding the specific laws and travel restrictions in jurisdiction prior to traveling with any CBD containing products.
