Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 60 active chemical compounds (cannabinoids) found in cannabis. It’s usually the second most abundant compound in cannabis, behind THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that it won’t get you “high.” Cannabidiol is usually consumed for overall health and wellness. According to several studies, CBD may provide plenty of health benefits for people with diseases and medical conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, epilepsy, cancer, insomnia, depression, schizophrenia, acne, etc.
How does CBD work?
CBD naturally interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system is found in all mammals. The Endocannabinoid System facilitates the communication between the human body and brain. ECS regulates pain, sleep, inflammation, memory, mood, emotions, digestion, metabolism, appetite, etc.
Cannabidiol functions by binding cannabinoid receptors in the body’s ECS. The human body naturally produces endocannabinoids. When you consume CBD, this amazing compound imitates endocannabinoids.
