CBD is an abbreviation for “cannabidiol” – a component found in cannabis, that has no psychoactive effects (no marijuana ‘high’ because it is NOT marijuana). CBD has been shown to have properties, when ingested or applied topically, that may benefit your health.
CBD is found in greater amounts in “hemp”, which is a type of cannabis, but not the psychoactive strain of plant often referred to as “marijuana”. Hemp is a strain of plant that grows much taller, and can be used for its fiber, oil, and its seeds. Because CBD can be found in greater amounts in hemp (versus other strains of cannabis), that is what is used for the CBD hemp oil.
You can go to the National Institutes of Health or Google Scholar and search through thousands of research articles on cannabinoids like CBD as well as the Endocannabinoid System that exists in each of us!
The Endocannabinoid System in You
You have an “endocannabinoid system” in your body. Every human does! This is one of science’s most exciting discoveries – each of us are basically “pre-wired” with cannabinoid receptors throughout our body! These receptors are most abundant in our immune system and in our brain – two extremely important functions for optimal health and wellness.
