What is CBD? How does it work?
“We are still learning how exactly CBD works. It appears CBD interacts with a wide variety of systems in your body, such as your serotonin system,” explains Dr. Jeff Chen, founder of the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative and CEO and CoFounder of Radicle Science. “CBD also interacts with your endocannabinoid system, which is spread throughout your entire body. Whereas THC exerts its effects by directly binding to your cannabinoid receptors, CBD doesn’t bind to cannabinoid receptors, but instead appears to slow the breakdown of the endocannabinoids your own body naturally produces.”
What about essential oils? Do they work?
Over the last few years, more and more people have been turning to cannabidiol — aka CBD — as a part of their health and wellness routine, and it’s easy to see why. Research shows that CBD offers an impressive list of potential health benefits. It can help address issues like pain, depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders, which makes it easy to understand why CBD products are becoming so popular across the United States.

Meet the Nature’s Ultra CBD squad
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a plant-based compound found in hemp—the same plant from which we get hemp seed milk (a yummy alternative to cow’s milk), fabric, and bird feed. Nature’s Ultra makes their CBD products by dissolving CBD in fractionated coconut oil. When you use CBD products, your body’s endocannabinoid system is affected.
One of the factors that motivated the acquisition of Nature’s Ultra is that we recognized they share many of the same values as we do. They even share our Seed to Seal® commitment to quality , which we’ve verified through visits to their farms. Nature’s Ultra and Young Living are a match made in health! Like Peppermint and productivity or Frankincense and meditation, we are better together.
As you already know, we take special care to use only the highest-quality ingredients. Mirroring our own commitment, Nature’s Ultra uses only the finest, purest CBD. Most of Nature’s Ultra’s CBD products contain CBD isolate, organic stevia leaf extract, MCT coconut oil, and Young Living essential oils.
