Why CBD?

Before we get to what is CBD? Allow us to explain why CBD connect with our anatomy so well.

Just like we have an immune, respiratory, skeletal, nervous, muscular, reproductive, digestive, endocrine, circulatory system and so on. Well check out another natural system that is also essential for wellbeing.

Endo-cannabinoid: is an indigenous system woven throughout our body. This system is made-up of two receptors that are found throughout. These receptors are known as CB1 and CB2.  CB1 and CB2 are experts at processing cannabinoids like CBD.

Now what is CBD?

CBD or Cannabidiol is a non-intoxicating component of the hemp plant. Scientist refer to these elements as Cannabinoids.  This cannabinoid along with many others are found in resin which is produced by glandular structures in the hemp plant. Resin is littered with Terpenes. These Terpenes I am referring to are principally the Flavor and Fragrance of a cannabis plant. Terpenes are there to help repel bugs and animals in nature. They also have been attributed to having pharmacological properties, such as anti-cancer, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory to name a few.

 CBD does not make consumer feel intoxicated like the cannabinoid THC however it will assist with numerous health issues.  CBD-potent products aid with chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more. CBD also has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities.

To sum it all up: Our endocannabinoid system is like our body’s thermostat. Trying to keep us in homeostasis, and cannabinoids (I.E. CBD) tremendously helps with that.   There you have it.
