What is CBD

Cannabinoids, which can be either consumed or produced naturally by the body, are chemical compounds that interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), our body’s central regulatory system. The ECS, a physiological system first discovered in the late 1980’s, regulates the body’s general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune reponse.

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant and neuroprotectant properties, making them useful in a wide variety of health and wellness applications. In addition to its positive effects on the endocannabinoid system, CBD has been the focus of more than 23,000 published studies about cannabinoids in relation to various medical indications.
