Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating part of the cannabis plant that has therapeutic potential and a history as a medicine that goes back thousands of years. CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC) are two of the most known natural cannabinoids. CBD is a naturally occurring substance that supports a sense of calmness and overall wellness for a healthy mind and body.
CBD interacts with receptors in the endocannabinoid system to benefit many body systems, including your central nervous system. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a system within the body involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive functions through receptors found in the brain, skin and major organs. The ECS helps to regulate functions such as sleep, immune system response, and pain. The body creates compounds called endocannabinoids, hemp produces compounds called phytocannabinoids. When your body is given phytocannabinoids the ECS can function like it’s supposed to and you will find yourself in a better state of balance mentally and physically. Scientists believe that the Endocannabinoid System’s true purpose is to help the body establish and maintain balanced health.
