What is CBD?

What is CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a chemical compound derived from the hemp plant that is classified as a cannabinoid. There are over 100 unique cannabinoids in found in hemp. The human body actually creates its own cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) used by our endocannabinoid system.

And what is the endocannabinoid system? 

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) manages the body’s homeostasis. It is made up of receptors found throughout the body in our nerve cells and the cannabinoids which serve as messengers in this system. 

How does CBD work?

CBD is a phytocannabinoid (phyto meaning comes from a plant). It binds to the very same receptor sites in our nerve cells and keeps the ECS system toned and active.
