Intro to the Ins and Outs of CBD

It’s no surprise that the hemp plant continues to spark conversation. From medical to industrial use, hemp has held a long and practical role in history for centuries. This, along the growing discovery of the benefits of CBD, has pushed it into the spotlight now more than ever. CBD (cannabidiol) is currently one of the fastest growing industries today, and trying to keep up with all the brands and products can be overwhelming. The goal at Mitchell’s Medicinals is to educate consumers about what CBD is, why it works, and how their hemp extract products can benefit them the most. From sublingual drops and CBD balm to pet therapy, CBD can help alleviate pain, anxiety, and so much more.


Endocannabinoid System

Studies reveal that our bodies have a biochemical communication system which readily accepts cannabinoids, called the endocannabinoid system. This system plays a vital role in the regulation of mood, movement, and overall physiology of the body. Specifically, there are two main receptors that work to modulate functions in the nervous and immune systems: CB1 and CB2. CBD targets affected areas until there is balance.



According to data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 11.2% of American adults (25.3 million people) have experienced some form of pain every day for the past three months. Luckily, CBD, which will not give you a high, has emerged as a safe and natural way to help relieve both chronic and acute pain.

The brain has the largest concentration of CBD1 receptors. Even so, they are also found throughout the body. Sleep, mood, pain and diet are most affected. When you activate CB1 receptors with CBD, these areas can show marked improvement.



A large body of research indicates that CB2 receptors are linked to immune function, specifically inflammation. When you have an inflammatory response, your immune system is trying to fight the pathogens in the area. CBD can help the CB2 receptor contain the inflammation and help get rid of it faster.


Full-Spectrum CBD

Mitchell’s products are full-spectrum. Full-spectrum hemp CBD products are the most beneficial because you’re getting more than just CBD. In fact, you’re getting a diverse set of compounds (CBN, CBG, CBA) working together synergistically to improve overall health. With the other unique cannabinoids present, they work better together, providing a synergy. There is a significant increase in therapeutic benefits when the whole plant extract is taken versus an isolate, which is generally clear in nature.

Topical CBD

Skin Cannabinoid Receptors

A 2010 study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology unveiled that the endocannabinoid system is vital for supporting the life cycle of basal cells, which make up the majority of our skin cells. The uninhibited ability of new cells replacing dead cells is important for healthy skin, and the use of CBD products can help regulate this process. Our skin is teeming with CB2 cannabinoid receptors. It not only absorbs the cannabinoids and transports them wherever they are needed in the body, but they also benefit the skin directly.

For some, the external application of CBD is the preferred delivery method. For areas where pain is localized, smooth CBD body butter or topical ointment directly to the area. The massaging action will not only help the delivery of CBD to the area of pain, but the CBD will also help keep the skin healthy. Mitchell’s Medicinals Ointment is commonly used for deeper pain, such as joint and nerve pain. It can also be used in a first aid kit, as it is great for bug bites, rashes, and sunburn. Mitchell’s Medicinals Body Butter is effective for muscle pain, as well as for overall skin health and rejuvenation, helping maintain a youthful look.

The Body Butter and Ointment not only have a fresh scent, but they can also be used anywhere on the body. From there, the benefits are innumerable. From eczema to acne, see what topical CBD products can do to improve your skin, from the outside in.


Sublingual CBD Drops

The most common method for administering CBD is by liquid sublingual drops. Place just a few drops under the tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing to allow the sublingual glands to quickly deliver CBD to the bloodstream. From there, CBD will work to bring the body back to homeostasis. Always shake the bottle prior to use. Mitchell Medicinals Hemp Products are available in a variety of strengths and concentrations. A reasonably priced mini-CBD dropper is available which is especially helpful to first-timers who want to try a high-quality CBD product.


The benefits of CBD go beyond humans. Animals also have an endocannabinoid system and administering CBD to our pets will encourage this system to stay in balance. Much in the same way CBD supports human systems, CBD can help with emotional and physical support to our four-legged family members.
