What is CBD
CBD refers to the chemical compounds found naturally in the stalks of the hemp plant. This active hemp extract is non-psychoactive and instead is known for its healing and wellness properties.
CBD does not get you high, instead it works with your body’s own internal system that regulates the balance of everything from your brain to your digestive and immune systems. People that take CBD daily have described a calming effect on the mind and body.
CBD works by regulating our body’s ECS or Endocannabinoid System. This system helps ensure that the body’s central nervous systems are running correctly and serves a vital purpose for our health and well-being.
Our ECS helps us achieve homeostasis by regulating balance in our body’s immune response, appetite and metabolism, mood, memory, cognitive function, sleep and communication between cells.
When our ECS is running smoothly we feel calm and collected, we have a clear mind, our immune system functions optimally and our overall mood improves. You can learn more about the body's ECS here.
