A Bit About Cannabidiol (CBD)

A Bit About Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabidiol or CBD is a therapeutic compound of the cannabis plant providing both palliative and curative influence on the human body and mind.

While CBD still has a profound effect on your body, consuming CBD by itself isn’t going to send you on the cerebral adventure associated with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

For decades, medical professionals and the general public overlooked CBD because psychoactive cannabis took center stage. Over the last four decades mainstream scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.

Naturally occurring receptors for CBD are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.

In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
