Cannabidiol (CBD)

What is CBD? 


CBD is a completely naturally-occurring compound extracted from the cannabis plant. There exist dozens of other compounds, or cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant (THC, CBG, CBC, etc.), but CBD (cannabidiol) exists in a strikingly larger percentage than the rest. It has been shown to have significant health benefits without the psychoactive 'high' effect. The reason CBD is so effective in the medicinal influence is due to the fact that the human body is biologically designed to interact with active cannabinoids through the endocannabinoid system. This system exists within each and every person and is a vital molecular system responsible for maintaining homeostasis. The receptors receive and molecules interact with cannabinoids that enter the body to find optimal balance for cellular function. The use of CBD to interact with your endocannabinoid system can lead to various forms of healing related to: 


Chronic pain 

Nervous system disorders/imbalance

Anxiety/Nervousness

Autoimmune disease

Arthritis 

Inflammation

Poor sleep quality
