CBD-ING IS BELIEVING
WHAT IS CBD?
If you’re seeking a true mind-body connection, it’s the body’s endocannabinoid system. This complex biological system is made of endocannabinoids, a collection of neurotransmitters that bridge what we think and feel to how our body reacts. Cannabidiol, aka CBD, interacts with these neurotransmitters, specifically the two primary endocannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. These receptors help balance sensation and mood, while supporting healthy inflammation metabolism.
HOW DOES CBD AFFECT THE BRAIN?
CBD increases the brain’s levels of anandamide, a neurotransmitter named after the Sanskrit word for “joy” or “bliss.” Anandamide is also found in chocolate, which is why many find chocolate oh-so heavenly delicious. It also regulates other brain chemicals like the two feel-good ones everyone knows, serotonin and dopamine.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND THC?
Mostly, it’s in the way your body reacts. CBD and THC belong to the same class of compounds but are different structurally, so the body reacts to them in very different ways. THC is psychoactive and bonds with the CB1 receptor to make you feel high. CBD only bonds with CB2 receptors, so it’s non-psychoactive and will not make you feel high.
IF VELOBAR CBD WON’T MAKE ME HIGH, WHAT WILL IT DO?
Everyone is different, so people respond to CBD differently. Unlike THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive, so it doesn’t have the affects associated with the THC “high” from smoking or ingesting marijuana. For many, Velobar CBD helps manage stress and encourages a calmer mood. Many also use it for recovery after a strenuous physical workout.
IS VELOBAR CBD LEGAL OR WILL I NEED A PRESCRIPTION OR MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD?
Velobar CBD bars are legal in all 50 states without a prescription. Our CBD is sustainably sourced from botanicals (never marijuana or hemp) and can be legally shipped anywhere in the United States.
BESIDES CBD, WHAT ARE VELOBARS MADE OF?
Velobar CBD bars are made from ultra-nutritious, high-protein superfoods, so they’re as good for your body and taste buds as they are for your mind. All of our bars are gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO. For those with allergies, please note that Velobars contain tree nuts (almond, cashew, coconut) and are manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, eggs and milk.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO ENJOY MY VELOBAR CBD?
The perfect time is any time you need to unwind or add a little more zen into your life. It might be when you’re stressing out on Sunday night about Monday morning, after a work day when you worked way too hard, or when everything’s aching after an overdone workout.
WHERE DOES YOUR CBD COME FROM?
Our CBD is sustainably sourced and comes from natural botanicals rather than marijuana or hemp, so it never contains THC. It is made at an FDA-licensed cGMP facility. The result is a pure, safe, food-grade CBD.
IS YOUR CBD A SYNTHETIC OR IS IT NATURAL?
The CBD found in Velobar CBD is a natural compound formed from natural plants. Our CBD is not extracted but is created by combining the bark from an invasive evergreen tree and citrus peels. Our CBD does not contain heavy metals or pesticides. The result is the purest form of CBD available.
WILL EATING A VELOBAR CBD MAKE ME FAIL A DRUG TEST?
Our CBD does not come from marijuana or hemp, so it does not contain THC. So, you will not get any THC in your system from eating a Velobar.
WHAT ABOUT DOPING?
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has recently cleared CBD (with no THC) to be used by athletes competing in international cycling.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD DO TO ENJOY MY VELOBAR CBD?
Stay hydrated! Your body depends on water to function at its very best. To fully enjoy your Velobar CBD, we recommend you drink plenty of water throughout the day.
