CBD (Cannabinoid) is taking the spotlight in treating a number of ailments as well as preventative and regulatory health. CBD is a chemical component of the cannabis plant but unlike its THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) counterpart- does not have psychoactive properties. With all the benefits of cannabis without the high, this makes CBD a fantastic alternative as scientific studies have shown that it may help treat a variety of ailments like chronic pain and anxiety.
As humans, we have an endocannabinoid system which is involved in regulating functions in our body such as sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. Our body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in our nervous system. Studies have shown that CBD may benefit our overall health by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.
