CBD (Cannabidiol) is a natural and non-psychotropic component of the hemp plant (not marijuana) and has been shown to have positive health benefits, without causing a THC-like high.
How does CBD work?
Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that uses naturally-occurring cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells and support our regulatory system. This central system helps to keep our bodies balanced day to day, including: apetite, pain sensation, mood, memory, immune system functions, and inflammation control. When there is a deficiency in these cannabinoids, it can lead to any number of conditions and medical ailments. CBD works to replenish these natural cannabinoids, and therefore return our cells to a healthy, balanced state.
