CBD Basics

You’ve been hearing the latest word on the street: CBD is the next superfood. Now you’re wondering, what does CBD actually mean? 

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a substance found in the Cannabis sativa plant, or the hemp plant. It’s the most abundant substance found in the hemp plant. This non-psychoactive substance is believed to have a calming and therapeutic effect for a plethora of conditions. This effect is believed to be enhanced by the healing interplay of roughly 480 other natural compounds in the plant, like various cannabinoids and terpenes. 

So, How does CBD work in our body? The human body is actually hard-wired for CBD. Our bodies already have an endocannabinoid system that produces its own version of cannabinoids. On top of the cannabinoids our body produces for itself, our bodies are also receptive to compounds extracted from the cannabis plant.  That’s why CBD can bring healing effects!
