WHAT IS CBD?
CBD/CANNABIDIOL is a chemical compound produced naturally by cannabis plants. 🌱 It could be either from the hemp plant or it could be from the marijuana plant.
THE TWO MAIN PLAYERS
CBD and THC are two of the most common cannabinoids, or plant compounds, derived from the hemp and cannabis plant. CBD and THC do not have the same psychoactive effects. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and does not produce a “high”, where THC typically produces a high or sense of euphoria.
CBD IS AN…
Oil extracted from the leaf of cannabis plant. CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti muscle relaxant, anti-anxiety, antibacterial, and it works to boost your immune system.
HOW CBD WORKS IN YOUR BODY
Just like our immune, cirulatory and digestive system, everybody has an endocannabinoid system.
WHAT IS (ECS) - ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system identified in the early 1990s by researchers.
WHAT DOES YOUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) keeps all your other systems in balance with one another as you encounter daily stress. It’s made up of a series of cannabinoid receptors embedded all over your body including in your brain, all of your organs, connective tissues, immune cells, and more.
Your body naturally produces two endo-cannabinoids of its own called Anandamide and 2-AG to stimulate these receptors and support the function of your ECS.
In layman’s terms, cannabinoids help your body communicate more effectively with itself.
HOW DOES CANNABIS SUPPORT YOUR ECS?
Cannabis produces phyto-cannabinoids that also stimulate our ECS’s cannabinoid receptors. This means that if you have an endo-cannabinoid deficiency, you can use cannabis as a cannabinoid supplement.
Although all cannabinoids interact with our endocannabinoid system, not all cannabinoids produce the same effects.
The ECS works at every level to bring balance to the body.
CBD is one of the most versatile supplements on the planet because it helps the body help itself.
