Our big kicker ingredient is called CBD (CannaBiDiol). CBD is gaining scientific and medical awareness and as a result, is being explored for a variety of reasons.
CBD is one of the 113 cannabinoïd molecules produced uniquely by the hemp and cannabis families. As opposed to other cannabinoids like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), when extracted and consumed, CBD doesn’t have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity. CBD contains no THC (<0.03mg) and is commonly known as being non-psychoactive.
We always loved the science of things. Anatomy, biology and even just being an athlete is a search for discovery in finding oneself. When we say CBD is the future, we truly believe it. Here is why...
A long learnt belief is there are eleven systems of the body (Circulatory, Respiratory, Nervous, Muscular, Immune, etc.). As recently as the 1990's however, scientists discovered a 12th system in the body, the endocannabinoid system!
Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) has a series of receptors throughout the whole body (brain, organs, connective tissue, immune cells and glands). Some suggest that it may assist with a variety of functions including sleep, mood, memory, appetite, reproduction and pain.
In really basic terms, the ECS's role is to maintain balance/homeostasis in the body. From temperature regulation, to hormone levels, to your body noticing a build up of toxins in your bloodstream. Get it? It's disease and illness... Here's the cool part...
Endocannabinoids are what bind to the receptors to maintain balance and are found naturally in our bodies. Exercise helps with stress and makes you feel better. Amazingly, scientists link possible correlations to the endocannabinoids and the ECS. However, a lack of looking after ourselves and not exercising, sleeping and having a poor diet can diminish these receptors
Now enter CBD! The hemp plant (not marijuana) has a high concentration of CBD, a plant-based endocannabinoid. When you take a dose of CBD, it floods the ECS, and studies are finding CBD may put your body in balance.
Now as people started discovering this, CBD oil started popping up everywhere. Unfortunately, because this industry is new and emerging, CBD has become the wild west because it is currently an unregulated industry. You can literally put olive oil in a little brown bottle and slap a CBD label on it to get you to buy CBD.
This is why it is so important to know where exactly your CBD oil comes from and what is inside the bottle of CBD you purchase! Do your research and go with a CBD brand that showcases their certificates of analysis (COA's).
What Is The Endocannabinoid (ECS) System?
The ECS is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. Amongst all the various benefits that are being correlated with CBD consumption, our exclusive CBDayz formulas are tailor designed for the action sports community.
How Does the Endocannabinoid System Work?
Cannabinoids, their receptors, and endocannabinoid molecules all play a role in the Endocannabinoid properly balancing your bodily functions. Your body produces endocannabinoids and you receive some from your diet. The endocannabinoids match the correct cannabinoid cells with certain receptors to balance bodily functions as they cycle throughout the ECS.
CB1 & CB2 Receptors
After discovering the endocannabinoid system, recent studies have shown that our brains have specific receptors designed to accept cannabinoids, known as CB1 and CB2, which are responsible for the assimilation of cannabinoids molecules in your system. A discovery that started a whole new era in cannabis and hemp research.
The sun is the main component of the CBDayz identity, paying homage to the good dayz and our master ingredient in all our products; sun-grown organic hemp CBD.
The sun embodies powerful energy. It represents the light of the good days and a positive calming vibe. At the end of the day, the sun symbolises the purpose of our brand and products.
When the sun is shining, it usually means we are out there getting after it!
Reduce Ride Day Soreness &
Recoveries From Slams
Action sports are sometimes a questionably "good for you" way of life. Eventually we all seem to get injured having the time of our lives.
To many of us, action sports baffle those who just don't get our drive, bliss and passion. Why do the sport if we keep getting hurt! Now, we might all have different responses but most of us just do it because it's really really fun!
Studies (click here) suggest that CBD could be rich with anti-swelling properties and could play an important role in speeding up how you bounce back from slams. Everyone is different however, so seeking advice from you health care provider before trying CBD is always recommended.
Assist Brain Functionality
When the sharpness of your decisions is drawing the line between stomping and riding out or landing in the emergency room, there is no room for stress and worry. A clear mind is more likely to react promptly in a split second and this may extend your luck in a critical situation.
CBD targets the serotonin receptor 1A. Amongst many other functions, this receptor is responsible for a person’s good mood and clear cognition. Many of the potential therapeutic benefits of CBD are associated with the profound affinity CBD has with this receptor.
The unique neurological effects of CBD are certainly very interesting to learn about. Some studies have suggested that it may protect our neurons from degeneration. This is not been confirmed as of yet by the FDA.
Maintain High Levels Of Energy
Let’s agree that being healthy and having great energy levels can certainly help you get after life and your dayz. CBD has been suggested to enhance energy, cognition, focus and balance general health and wellbeing.
Snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing can be very demanding on the human body. Therefore the need to train, have acute cognition and be in great physical health to enjoy the sports we love long term.
Overall Good Vibes
Managing balance in body and brain is one of the several functions of the ECS. CBD is a great source of fatty acids such as Omega 3 which may assist the body to produce more endocannabinoids. This may enhance the whole body’s immune system.
Some scientists respond with positive results concerning CBD possibly being linked with increased blood flow and playing a key role in maintaining homeostasis (overall balance) of your body.
