WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol (it’s tricky to pronounce, yes) and is a natural, non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant.
CBD is the most prevalent of over one hundred cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Our bodies naturally produce many of these cannabinoids but at very low levels. In order for our endocannabinoid system to function effectively, CBD supplementation is necessary.
HOW IT WORKS ON THE BODY
CBD and the other cannabinoids are very powerful adaptogens that can address many different issues simultaneously, via the cannabinoid receptors located throughout our bodies.
The endocannabinoid system is extremely important to our bodies overall functionality. It is responsible for two basic activities: Modulating pleasure, energy and well-being and gradually nudging the body back to health in the face of injury and disease
