What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant genus. Both hemp and marijuana are types of cannabis, and CBD can come from either. There are many other cannabinoids in addition to CBD; in fact, over 100 have been discovered thus far.
What is the difference between marijuana and hemp?
While they are both cannabis plants, hemp does not have any psychoactive effects and will not give you a feeling of being “high.” Hemp is higher in CBD and lower in THC, which is the cannabinoid that can produce psychoactive effects. Marijuana is higher in THC and lower in CBD. All of the products that we carry are derived from the hemp plant, making them completely legal and devoid of any psychoactive side effects.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
To understand how CBD works, you must first understand the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is a major bodily system (like the nervous or circulatory system) that was identified in the early 1990s. It is made up of cell receptors (endocannabinoids) that act as messengers giving your body specific directions on what to do. Endocannabinoids are located in many different areas in the body, including the brain, spinal cord, immune cells, gastrointestinal tract, and more. They tell the body when to get certain processes moving and when to stop. They also help keep the body in homeostasis or optimal balance. Therefore, the ECS is important in regulating many functions and feelings including:
– Immune Function
– Motor Control
– Pleasure & Reward
– Reproduction & Fertility
– Temperature Regulation
How does CBD work?
If your body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly, you are more susceptible to illnesses that affect one or more of the bodily functions listed above. External sources of cannabinoids like CBD can help regulate your ECS. If your ECS is balanced, that can lead to improved health relating to those functions.
