WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabis plants produce compounds called cannabinoids. But, did you know that your own body internally produces it’s own cannabinoids? They are called endocannabinoids and, in fact, you have an entire endocannabinoid system in your body! The endocannabinoid system is responsible for communication within the body to regulate various biological responses.
There are over 113 cannabinoids produced in cannabis plants and cannabidiol (CBD) is one of them. This plant-derived cannabinoid, or phytocannabinoid, mimics the behavior of endocannabinoids already preexisting in your body augmenting your endocannabinoid system.
Studies show CBD possesses many therapeutic properties including pain relief (analgesic), anti-anxiety (anxiolytic), prevention of nausea and vomiting (antiemetic), reduction of inflammation (anti-inflammatory), arthritis relief (antiarthritic), prevention of oxidative stress (antioxidant) and anti-bacterial properties.
