CBD Explained

What Is CBD?

CBD (also known as Cannabidiol), is a member of a group of chemical compounds called cannabinoids, which are found in the resin glands (trichomes) of the cannabis/hemp plant. 

Some species of hemp are grown to be high in CBD.

How Does CBD Interact With The Body

Scientific research has identified an Endocannabinoid system (ECS) in every mammal.  Your ECS has two receptors CB1 and CB2.

CB1 is mainly concentrated in the central nervous system which influences many functions of the body and brain, including mood appetite, pain and sleep.

CB2 is found in high densities on cells involved in the immune system, which regulates inflammation and protects against disease.

CBD interacts with the CBD1 and CBD2 receptors to regulate the endocannabinoid system
