THE ABCs OF CBD.
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in hemp plants and has many potential therapeutic benefits. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not induce any feelings of being “high.” Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, compounds derived from hemp plants are legal and consumers can enjoy the many benefits this natural compound provides. In fact, CBD is one of 80 cannabinoids found in hemp, and research into their many possible uses is ongoing.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
CBD works by interacting with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is one the body’s regulatory systems and has CB receptors on our body’s cell surfaces; CB1 receptors are essential for healthy brain function, and CB2 receptors are found on the cells of our immune system. CBD delivers benefits by attaching to the receptors of the ECS to keep you balanced and feeling your best.
