CBD BENEFITS & FAQ
What is CBD?
CBd; Cannabidiol, is one of the primary natural cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant.
What are Cannabinoids? Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that bind the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors throughout your brain and body.
What are cannabinoid receptors? Cannabinoid receptors are embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. Researchers have identified two cannabinoid receptors: CB-1, present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. CB-2, found in the immune system and its associated structures.
The Endocannabinoid System CBD primarily interacts with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The ECS regulates processes in the body such as appetite, pain, mood, memory, peripheral nervous system, and more. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis.
Homeostasis in a general sense refers to stability or balance in a system. It is the body’s attempt to maintain a constant internal environment.
CBD won't get you high. Hemp and Marijuana are not the same. Both plants are in the same Cannabis family, hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation, and application.
