Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a unique compound found in the Hemp Plant. It is one of over 100 known active cannabinoid compounds, and unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), in its pure and crystalline form it is non-intoxicating, does not produce euphoria, or the sensation of being “high”. The potential therapeutic benefits of CBD may be attributed to the mounting evidence that CBD, and other lesser researched Cannabinoids, interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), currently one of the most studied signaling systems in the body.
Taken sublingually or topically, CBD is absorbed into your cells. Through the help of your body’s Endocannobinoid System, CBD reacts with various receptors in the brain, organs, muscles, tissues and nerves to help regulate inﬂammation, pain and maintain homeostasis.
