What is CBD? (aka Cannabidiol)

February 17, 2020

Cannabidiol or CBD for short, is one of many naturally occurring phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Phytocannabinoids from plants such as CBD as well as endocannabinoids which are produced by the body such as anandamide work with receptors throughout the body's endogenous endocannabinoid system to help facilitate homeostasis.  In short, CBD may help cells throughout the body operate at their most optimal performance levels.  If the body is lacking cannabinoids or the endocannabinoid system is out of whack, phytocannabinoids (from plants in this case specifically Industrial Hemp) are used to replace the naturally occurring ones and bring the body back to balance or homeostasis.

CBD is mainstream. This fact is undeniable. But not all CBD is the same. This miraculous phytocannabinoid, which is prevalent in hemp and cannabis varieties, can be found in everything from food and beverage to health and beauty products. Science and anecdotal claims alike support the efficacy of CBD in the potential treatment of a broad spectrum of ailments and conditions.
