What is CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive, non-addictive compound derived from hemp, that has been shown to interact with the human body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of neurotransmitters and receptors (CB1 and CB2) involved with the regulation of appetite, immune system functions, and pain management.  Anandamide (AEA) and 2-Arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) are the two main endocannabinoids responsible for the activation of the CB1 and CB2 receptors.  CBD acts acts as an inhibitor of the degradation of Anandamide and causes a number of actions to occur at the cellular level.  These processes promote intercellular homeostasis, a state of dynamic equilibrium necessary for optimal bodily functioning.
