Quick 101: What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis flower.
CBD is one of more than a hundred "phytocannabinoids".
CBD can't get you "high". While CBD is closely related to another phytocannabinoid - tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it does not contain THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that produces that "high" feeling.
Studies have shown that CBD may support in the treatment of chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression & many other conditions.
What can it do for me?
Everyone has what's called an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) consisting of both CB1 & CB2 receptors in your body.
Your ECS is a biochemical communication system which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience in life.
CB1 receptors are located in the brain and throughout the body while CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune and gastrointestinal systems.
When you take or use products containing CBD, the CBD binds to your receptors.
