“Cannabis is the single most versatile herbal remedy and the most useful plant on Earth. No other single plant contains as wide a range of medically active herbal constituents.”
Dr. Ethan Russo

“I am so thrilled. I have had a burning, pulling pain in my back due to a bulging disk and constricted nerves for nearly two years. As of 3 days ago that pain is gone and I can walk with my back straight instead of walking bent over. I’ve been singing the praises of this product to everyone I know."

Hi! I am Heidi and Co-Founder of 406 CBD. I am a health and wellness advocate specializing in plant-based medicines such as herbalism and essential oils as well as natural healing modalities such as Reiki, tapping, and yoga. I researched CBD for three years before actually trying it. Now my entire family, lots of my clients, and even my pets are enjoying the health benefits of CBD.
After I began supplementing with CBD, I noticed that I was less anxious in social situations, while driving, and that my workout recoveries were easier.
Honestly, I didn’t even realize how much I was suffering from driving anxiety until it was gone. I still remember the first time I noticed the absence of anxiety while I was driving. I could take a full breath and just felt relaxed and could actually enjoy the drive! Living in the heart of Montana the scenery is always beautiful.
I have had many hikes or workouts where I thought to myself; I am going to be so sore tomorrow! And then the next day would come around, and I wasn’t! I have been able to take my yoga practice to a much higher level thanks to CBD. If I do have a cramp or soreness somewhere, I just apply some CBD lotion or salve and its gone within minutes. Even menstrual cramps are history!
In my family, my kids supplement with CBD for everything from hormonal mood swings to growing pains. My 12-year-old Goldendoodle gets CBD twice a day for her arthritis, and my 19-year-old cat gets it in her yogurt because…she’s 19. That’s 92 in cat years!
I am so impressed with the transformational stories I have seen thanks to CBD with myself, my family, my clients as well as my pets that I have become a cannabis advocate, a hemp enthusiast, and now a CBD business owner!

What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol. Our CBD comes from the hemp plant but can also be found in hops, brussel sprouts, and kale. CBD can also be extracted from marijuana, but depending on the state you live in, that CBD may be illegal. Hemp-derived CBD is federally legal thanks to the 2014 and now the 2018 Farm Bills.
CBD is a rock star cannabinoid from over a 100 that have been discovered so far. The reason we specialize in CBD is that it is the cannabinoid that has been found to be the most therapeutic to the human body.
Cannabinoids are agonists that bind to special receptors on your cells, called cannabinoid receptors, that form to make up your endocannabinoid system (ECS).
How does CBD work?
Our bodies function specifically to digest CBD. The CB1 receptors (found in the brain and central nervous system) and CB2 receptors (found throughout the body in immune system cells) make up our endocannabinoid system. CBD helps to regulate the, um, well, just about everything! This includes hormones, bone and muscle growth, enzymes, digestive system, cardiovascular system, liver function, weight, brain function, and the immune system. These bodily systems affect our sleep, memory, stress response, energy balance, healthy cell renewal, and nervous function.
What does all of this mean?
Well, it means that possible health benefits of supplementing with CBD are wide-ranging, to say the least. CBD is famous for helping sufferers with epilepsy but is most popular for aches and pains as well as mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. People are using CBD for everything from getting better sleep to aiding in workout recovery. The anti-inflammatory effects make CBD an excellent health boost for almost everyone! But don’t just take my word for it.
