CBD is non-psychoactive (which means it will not get you “high”) and has been used for treatment and health for many years. Since CBD is derived from hemp it is legal in most places and is considered a natural health product.

As for what it is exactly…

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of many cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are the main active chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and they act on the cannabinoid receptor cells located all over our brain and body. All of the receptors in our bodies that respond to cannabinoids work together as part of what is known as the endocannabinoid system.

When cannabinoids like CBD enter our cells they work by altering the release of neurotransmitters. CBD affects the endocannabinoid system, as well as other receptors in our bodies in order to regulate the body’s natural functions – including mood, sleep, appetite and metabolism, and immune response.

“There are over 100 presently discovered cannabinoids, which are largely responsible for the effects cannabis has on the body.”  [source]

CBD is commonly compared to as a ‘key’ that fits into the human body’s endocannabinoid system. The way that CBD interacts with our bodies can unlock healing potential in so many diverse ways. Speak to a health care adviser to see if CBD can help you live life comfortably.
