CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system through a network of receptors all across the human body and brain. It acts as your body’s ‘assistant manager’, restoring your body to a state of balance or homeostasis. This is why there are so many mental and physical health benefits associated with CBD usage. You’ll experience these associated benefits no matter what CBD product you choose.
Mission C have formulated our different blends alongside other natural herbs, terpenes, and botanicals to help naturally enhance those benefits. If you’re looking for pain relief, energy, sleep quality or improved sports performance, Mission C products can help.
Chronic pain affects more than two-fifths of the UK population. These staggering figures mean that 28 million adults are living with pain lasting for three months or longer.
Pre-clinical studies have shown strong indications that CBD suppresses inflammatory and neuropathic pain and produces an analgesic effect to reduce overall pain perception in the brain. Another study found that CBD could be used as a substitute for Opioid-based pain medication.
MENTAL HEALTH AND ANXIETY
Anxiety is the most common mental health issue in the UK, with over 8.2 million cases of anxiety reported in 2013. We all feel anxious at some point. It’s a completely natural reaction to danger or stress, but due to global lockdowns many of us are now living with constant low levels of anxiety.
Pre-clinical trials have shown that CBD has a remarkable effect on calming symptoms of anxiety. It promotes the production of serotonin, the chemical that contributes to health and wellbeing.
Over 36% of UK adults are currently struggling to get to sleep at least once a week. A lack of quality sleep can be driven by stress, anxiety, and pain locked up in the body. CBD produces calming, pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory effects on the body to alleviate some of these stresses.
Pre-clinical trials have commenced, which have been extremely positive, with evidence pointing towards a calming effect for CBD in the central nervous system. This ultimately results in healthier sleeping patterns and quality sleep, night after night.
FOCUS & ENERGY
Lack of focus and energy has become a huge problem in the modern world. Recent studies suggest we experience a 50% drop in productivity when we’re distracted. This distraction is often driven by our hyperconnected lives and the never sleeping digital world we have created.
Preliminary research suggests that taking CBD can reduce hyperactivity and help concentration. It can stop the mind from getting distracted by the symptoms of pain and anxiety. This delivers huge positive impacts on both our daily focus and energy levels.
IMMUNE SYSTEM HEALTH
The emergence of the global Covid-19 pandemic has placed huge importance on having a strong immune system.
Pre-clinical studies have shown that CBD includes anti-inflammatory properties, helping to isolate infected areas and prevent the toxic components from spreading to other parts of your body. CBD also acts as an immunosuppressant and immunomodulator, assisting in the regulation of inflammation, immunity, and the production of white blood cells.

About 95% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne. Some of the driving factors behind oily skin are genetics, hormones, and an imbalanced diet.
Scientific studies have shown that CBD interacts with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), particularly our CB1 receptors, to prevent our sebaceous glands in the skin from producing excess sebum (the oil released into our skin). This restores our skin balance and prevents inflammatory proteins being produced, meaning fewer impurities like acne, pimples, spots, or blackheads.
According to new research, nearly half the UK population (47%) suffers from dry or very dry skin on their body. Yet only around a quarter (28%) are actually aware that they have dry skin at all. CBD interacts with our bodies to reduce our sebum (oil) levels.
Pre-clinical trials have shown that CBD can aid dry skin by increasing oil production where appropriate. It depends entirely on your genetic makeup, meaning that CBD will help your skin find the perfect oil level regardless of your skin type - oily, dry, or even combination.
Wrinkles develop in our skin due to a natural ageing process and sunlight exposure. This is mainly from UV rays that, over time, break down the collagen production and elastic fibres in the skin.
Scientific studies have shown that CBD face cream could stimulate the growth of new skin cells, battling against our natural ageing process. They have also shown that CBD is a powerful antioxidant, fighting free radicals absorbed by the skin from UV rays and pollution to prevent cell and DNA damage in the skin.

Pre-workout nutrition aims to provide your muscles with the required energy supplies and support for your workout. Around 30 minutes to an hour before your workout, it’s wise to think about a pre-workout snack or supplement.
Preliminary research has shown that CBD may increase energy levels, making you feel more active, focused and alert. CBD has also been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory effects, meaning your muscles should become less inflamed before you exercise, which delivers increased work function. Due to CBD’s analgesic effects, there is also strong evidence that your pain perception levels drop, enabling you to reach maximum performance.
Recovery is incredibly important in the workout process. It helps you avoid the negative side effects of training and when those micro-tears heal, your muscles will grow.
Preliminary research has shown CBD to have strong anti-inflammatory effects. It increases blood flow to your joints and muscles to help you recover from injuries and reduce all over body pain and stiffness after a workout.
CBD has also been shown to promote a calming effect on the central nervous system. This can help to reduce stress and anxiety and promote healthier sleep, which are crucial elements for post-workout recovery. Our collection of CBD muscle balm are specifically designed to aid muscle recovery and sooth inflammation.
