Cannabidiol or CBD is a naturally occurring, powerful plant compound (also called phytocannabinoids) found in hemp plants. CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause a high, unlike marijuana, which does contain THC.
CBD works by bonding with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) regulates processes in the body such as appetite, pain, mood, memory, peripheral nervous system, and more.
ECS’s two main receptors are CB1 and CB2. These receptors are responsible for the assimilation of cannabinoid molecules into your system, resulting in the immune responses correlated with CBD consumption.
When CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors, it improves the way they function and provides you with health benefits as a result. CBD can also help with cannabinoid deficiency by reducing the risk of headaches, irritability, anxiety, and a number of other health conditions.
We like to think of CBD as your endocannabinoid system’s sidekick. It can unleash its full potential and give your body the cannabinoids necessary to function at its optimal level.
