CBD is a compound found in the cannabis/hemp plant and is extracted using specific extraction methods such as CO2. CBD comes from the cannabinoid family and offers anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant and analgesic benefits. Unlike THC, Hemp CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects.
Cannabinoids are the main chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD & THC are just two of over 120 cannabinoids that have been identified in cannabis. The human body has receptors for cannabinoids called the CB1 and CB2 receptors. All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to these receptors found in the human body Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is responsible for maintaining homeostasis in the human body. Receptors in the ECS are located in many areas of the body and help regulate functions such as sleep, mood, pain, metabolism, immune-system responses, appetite, reproduction & stress.
