What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients naturally present in the hemp plant. It is one of the many unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids, which can be either consumed (phytocannabinoids) or produced naturally by the body (endocannabinoid), are chemical compounds that interact with the body’s central regulatory system. CBD is an example of a phytocannabinoid. It is a non-psychoactive compound (CBD does not cause any feeling of “high”), and has been gaining momentum in the scientific community for its potential wide-ranging applications. CBD is quickly proving itself to be one of the most exciting developments in all-natural wellness support.

CBD is believed to impact the endocannabinoid system in a myriad of ways, including supporting and strengthening the entire system.

Medical research shows that CBD may be therapeutic for many conditions, including the following:
