We aim to provide you with as much information on CBD as possible. However, in accordance with US regulations, we cannot make health claims regarding our products. For further reading, we recommend consulting scientific publications, government research, and your doctor.

Cryo Body Works makes an effort to distinguish plant use and consumption to be as closely to its natural state as mother nature intended. Smoking and inhaling vapor or adding heat will alter the chemical structure of the plant, diminish its effectiveness, and harm the user.
**While our CBD is independently tested to contain less than .01% THC, we cannot guarantee that it will not be present on a drug test and recommend that you do not consume CBD in such situations. ** Please consult your doctor before choosing to vaporize with CBD. While vaporizing can be the fastest acting absorption of CBD, excessive or long term use can induce emphysema, pneumonia, or cancer(if synthetic additives are used). We strive to offer only the safest vape options with no synthetic additives.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in certain plants (cannabis, hemp, echinacea). CBD goes to work in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a group of cannabinoid receptors which are spread throughout the human body.
When CBD connects to a receptor, it does not produce the same kind of intoxicating effect that its well known cousin, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) does. CBD is non-psychoactive, and consuming moderate amounts will not cause inebriation. CBD promotes restful sleep, supports normal cartilage and joint function, relieves occasional nausea, enhances relaxation, and more. We recommend consulting scientific publications, government resources, and your doctor for more information on CBD’s benefits.
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, naturally occurs within the tiny hairlike structures known as trichomes that grow on hemp and cannabis. The first cannabinoid molecule to be discovered in 1940, researchers have been studying CBD’s numerous health benefits ever since. CBD has been shown to promote healthy sleep, relieve occasional joint pain, speed athletic recovery, enhance relaxation, improve mood, reduce stress and frustration, alleviate occasional nausea, and support immune system health.
Cannabidiol exists in two states, CBD and CBD-a. Both are being studied to discover their individual effects on the body. CBD-a, which grows directly on hemp and cannabis, shows a great potential for different types of treatment. However, its effects haven’t been researched as extensively as CBD. When CBD-a is heated to 248°F, it loses its acid chain in a process called decarboxylation (also referred to as “activation”) and becomes CBD. All our products go through this process. CBD has been well studied and has a more pronounced effect than CBD-a due to more efficiently binding to the body’s Cannabidiol receptors.
An organic product, CBD is a safer, natural alternative to synthetic options with little to no side effects. In hemp’s multi-thousand-year history, there has never been a recorded fatality. While CBD has been shown to be non-toxic even at extreme doses, you should consult your doctor if you plan on taking more than 300mg in a 24 hour period.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a recently discovered (1992) group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body. The endocannabinoid receptors that make up the ECS are located in our Central Nervous System (CNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), and Immune System. Our CNS includes our brain and spinal cord, while the PNS acts as a communication network linking our CNS to the rest of our body.
Our brains contain the heaviest concentration of cannabinoid receptors, but there’s no shortage of them in our organs, tissues, glands, and more. The saturation of ECS receptors throughout our body is part of why CBD has so many uses and is so effective.
Cannabinoids are organic molecules naturally produced by hemp and cannabis which activate two of the body’s central nervous system receptors: CB1 and CB2.* CB1 receptors are primarily located in the brain, while CB2 receptors are spread throughout the rest of the body. Because CBD does not activate the brain’s CB1 receptors, it is largely non-psychoactive.
Each of the 100+ known cannabinoids have unique receptor interactions, producing individual results. Research has also shown that cannabinoids’ benefits multiply when used together, producing what is called the “entourage effect.”
*More information on receptor activation and their effects on the body should be researched through reliable sources. We cannot provide health claims.
CBD Legal parameters: CBD legality in Texas is specific to HEMP and CANNABIS in different ways. Industrial Hemp derived CBD is legal in all states over the counter as low concentration containing 0.03% or less THC as defined by the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. Cannabis derived CBD is legal in specific states and Texas if prescribed by a Physician registered under the Compassionate Use Act and containing no greater than 0.05% THC. Precedence over the distinction of Hemp and Cannabis derived CBD has been established and clarified extensively in Texas. An example of such cases is of People's Pharmacy in Austin being cleared (after DPS wrongfully confiscated) for selling over-the-counter hemp derived CBD with less than 0.03% THC.
