Cannabidiol, also called CBD, is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. MVP uses Broad Spectrum Hemp in the new Bio-Balance (pellets) as it has all the benefits of Hemp without the THC, the psychoactive compound known to produce a “high” effect.

Broad Spectrum Hemp provides a source naturally occurring CBD which helps balance the brains endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system, ECS for short, is a signaling system that exists in both humans and animals and helps regulate many functions within the body. CBD supports a state of homeostasis, a self-regulating system that helps “balance” the body’s ability to maintain optimal body function. By “turning on” these functions within the body, it helps support a normal inflammatory response, balanced behavior and promotes relaxation (without drowsiness).

Benefits of CBD (from Broad Spectrum Hemp):

  • Balanced Behavior
