CBD stands for cannabidiol: one of the many cannabinoids found in the hemp variety of the Cannabis plant.
Hemp plants, by definition, do not contain more than 0.3% THC, this will not get you high and is 100% legal and safe.
We can extract CBD from hemp plant – along with other cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant oils – and infuse various products with the extract.
CBD is thought to interact with the human endocannabinoid system. This is a biological system composed of endocannabinoid receptors and cannabinoids. It plays a vital role in regulating many functions, including sleep, mood, pain, appetite, immune system, brain function, and lots more.
Research suggests that using CBD can help to improve the functioning of this system and restore balance to it, which could promote many health and wellbeing benefits. Since we already have cannabinoids in our body, using CBD is a wonderfully holistic and natural approach to wellness.
Think of it like to using vitamin supplements; our bodies have them anyway, but sometimes we just need a little helping hand! This includes CBD oils, CBD gummies, CBD oil capsules, CBD topicals (CBD skin care), and more.
CBD oils can be made with Hemp oil or MCT oil, which both provide slightly different characteristics and benefits. CBD gummies can be both vegan and non-vegan, and CBD skincare comes in a wide variety of product types.
