Benefits of CBD

CBD (aka Cannabidiol) is one of roughly 100+ natural cannabinoid compounds, and is the major non-psychoactive component in hemp. CBD is vital to supporting our endocannabinoid system (ECS) which exists throughout our body to supports our immune system, central nervous system, and digestive system.

What is CBD?

CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bi-di-ol), a prominent naturally occurring class of molecules called cannabinoids found in the plant species Cannabis Sativa. CBD comprises up to 40% of the plant and is one of over 60 plus compounds found in cannabis. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations and are therefore the most recognized and studied. CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause a high, unlike THC. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system and can use cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells and according to researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.

Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system (ECS), comprised of cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoid molecules, and their metabolic enzymes, is a crucial molecular system that the body uses to help maintain balance.
